More than two years after announcing it, Apple has just canceled the AirPower, leaving thousands of customers without a solution to charge iPhone, Airpods or Apple Watch wirelessly. Here are the best wireless chargers to replace AirPower.
Wireless chargers existed on the market for a very long time, but Apple wanted to offer its in-house solution for wireless charging up to 3 products (iPhone XS, Apple Watch and AirPods 2). But you know it if you follow the technology: AirPower will never see the light of day.
So here is our selection of wireless chargers that allow you to charge several devices at once, and therefore your Apple Watch, iPhone and AirPods.
#1 The Duo charger from Samsung!
To start this quick selection of wireless chargers to replace AirPower, we present a Samsung product. Many products of unknown brands are available at retailers, and turning to Samsung is a sure bet. It will allow you to charge an Apple Watch and an iPhone at the same time and is also compatible with Samsung watches and all smartphones that use wireless charging.
To power the Samsung Duo station, there is a single port at the back of the USB-C. Two colors exist and are charged between $50 and $75.
#2 Belkin BOOST UP station
It’s the best seller on Amazon. This Belkin station allows you to charge an iPhone and an Apple Watch simultaneously wirelessly. On the back, you will find a USB-A port to connect another smartphone, AirPods, iPad or any other technical product.
The power output for the iPhone is 7.5W and 5W for the Apple Watch, as is the USB port at the rear for charging AirPods. Choosing a Belkin product means choosing the leading manufacturer of wireless charging. The price is lower than what the AirPower should have cost with a public price of $149.
#3 The Bestrans charging station
The station is currently at the top of Amazon’s sales in the charger category and offers an experience almost identical to Airpower. You have a part dedicated to the iPhone (or any Qi compatible smartphone), one for the Apple Watch, and a dock for the AirPods.
The station uses wireless (up to 10W for Android smartphones) with a power of 7.5W for the iPhone, 2W for the Apple Watch, and 1.5W for the AirPods. These are loaded with the lightning port, but the advantage of the Bestrans Station is that you replace three takes with one. But the most favorable point of this model is its price: $49.99, even less in case of promotion on Amazon.
