Charging My Apple Devices
I’ve been asked many times about how I charge my Apple devices that I use daily, My iPhone 11 Pro Max, Apple Watch Series 4 & AirPods Pro.
It used to be a torture especially when travelling having to take each individual charging cable, 3 in total if I wanted to charge all the devices at the same time so this involved bringing along 3 plugs or a larger but more convenient 4 port USB Plug from Anker which I still use but will blog about in depth another time.
So what do I use now that Apples shelved AirPad isn’t seeing the light of day which would have been their solution to this problem.
After having tested several 2 and 3 in 1 charging solutions I have found my favourite that I use daily, The Mophie 3 in 1 Wireless Charging Pad.
This pad sits nicely on any desk taking up minimal space and looks great especially with all your devices charging on it and only one power cable needed.
The main pad area to the right is used to charge any Qi enabled compatible smartphone, In iPhones this is the iPhone 8 onwards.
The back notch holds your Apple Watch and the designers have thought about the bedside mode feature that displays the time while charging when the watch is positioned on its side, other manufacturers have neglected this great feature when designing their pads in my opinion by having the watch charge In the opposite orientation.
The last area on the pad is a little indent in front of the watch charger and this is used to charge your AirPods, “But did you not say you had AirPods Pro’s?” I did indeed and these came out after the release of this charging pad. The little indent is designed to put you AirPods snuggly into which starts them charging and you get a purple light notification that turns on underneath that shows they are now charging as expected, the case of the AirPods Pro is bigger and will not sit in the indent but will sit covering the indent and charge perfectly so this isn’t an issue if you own the pro models and want this charging pad.
Charging times for the AirPods and Watch are great usually taking Less than an hour but the iPhone will take longer as this is only providing 7.5W output.
The price of the Mophie 3 in 1 Wireless Charging Pad at this time of writing varies between online stores but the best I have seen is £129.95
