For the first time, Apple is selling a 3-in-1 wireless charging pad for including your iPhone, AirPods 2 (with wireless charging case) and Apple Watch – only it’s not made by Apple and it’s not called AirPower. The Mophie 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad ($140) is specifically designed to your charge your Apple devices, and it’s only available on Apple’s website or brick-and-mortar stores.
The charging pad is capable of wireless charging your iPhone at 7.5 watts, which is as fast as an iPhone can charge. There’s a dedicated cavity for your AirPods, so you can just slot the case in there without having to worry if the charging case is perfectly aligned. And the integrated charging stand for Apple Watch is optimized for Nightstand Mode, allowing the smartwatch to display the date, time and alarm (if you set it) while charging.
While expensive compared to other wireless chargers, there aren’t that many can charge all three Apple devices. You’re also paying for the Mophie name – the company is well-known for making high-quality charging accessories. It should be noted that Mophie also announced the Wireless Charging Dual Pad ($100), which can wirelessly charge two devices simultaneously. This is a more affordable option for those who don’t need to charge an Apple Watch. It’s also exclusively available from Apple.
