The latest report suggests that Apple will finally bring its long-delayed AirPower charger to market next month.
What is not yet known is the cost, rumors that are somewhere between 160 and 190 dollars. If Zens turns out to be more than you might want to pay, Zens has a new product that is an appropriate alternative.
The Zens Dual + Watch Aluminum Wireless Charger offers the ability to simultaneously charge two iPhones quickly and an Apple Watch. With the upcoming wireless AirPods case likely to consume less power than an iPhone, the charger should work just as well to charge an iPhone, a watch and an AirPods case
The Dual + Watch Aluminum Wireless Charger has an ultra-flat design that is made of one piece of high quality aluminum. The charger supports Apple Fast Charge and has a maximum total power of 20 W. The device offers the same clever technology that AirPower promises: the ability to place any device on any part of the charging pad. Making this reliable was probably the reason for the long delay in releasing the product. As Zac noted recently, no one else has done this trick.
But if you can live with having to place your devices in fairly specific positions, the $ 99 price could convince you. It will also be available in Europe for € 99.
Zens says the Dual + Watch charger will be available on September 15, probably at the same time that AirPower goes on sale. However, existing single-device wireless chargers start at $ 10- $ 15 and combined iPhone / Watch chargers cost around $ 25. So the question is what kind of premium do you want to pay for the neatness of an all-in-one solution
