Apple with Logitech releases wireless iPhone charger with multiple orientations

Logitech has revealed its newly designed wireless iPhone charger that’s designed for the iPhones. Apple collaborating with the company on the make has released the charger yesterday, August 7.

Known as the Powered Wireless Charging Stand, it is said to provide faster charging than the standard wall plugs. It can deliver up to 7.5 watts of power as compared to the 5 watts offered by the regular plugs.

There’s a cradle in the charger that will hold your iPhone with the coil in place. But, the best part is that it offers multiple orientations for the device. Therefore, you can watch videos or movies while keeping it horizontally and on charge. Just remember to not overdo it for obvious reasons.

Wireless iPhone ChargerAs for the cradle, it has been specifically designed for the iPhones. It is able to hold the phone at a 65-degree angle so that you can use the Face ID for unlocking. Furthermore, there are rubberized edges in the cradle that ensure the device doesn’t fall while vibrating.

The charger is only of 0.9 pounds in weight and has a 5-foot cable: a package that’s easy to carry while you are traveling. It is good enough to offer 5 watts of power to the Qi-supporting smartphones that are not of Apple.

Additionally, there is an overheat protection system which regularly measures temperatures, taking care of the need of fans. The dock can be easily kept in cases that are up to 3mm thick, and do not have magnets.

iPhone ChargerNow, this will do very well as a substitute to the AirPower wireless charger that was announced about a year ago and is yet to be released. There will as well be an AirPower charging mat coming your way (perhaps in September) as Apple’s CEO Tim Cook announced during that time.

You may want to wait for when the AirPower wireless charger arrives, however it will not hold the device at an angle. It will, although, provide support for up to 3 devices at once for charging. At the same time, this device will bear a support for an extension to be compatible with the Qi standard, helping Apple Watch Series 3 to be charged. It will have another support that sits well with an upcoming upgrade for the AirPods.

Apple’s Logitech-designed Powered Wireless Charging Stand is priced at $69.99 and will start shipping later this month.
