There is no shortage of wireless charging options out there, but if you want something designed for your iPhone and can not wait for the upcoming AirPower, then Logitech’s latest announcement might be for you.
The Logitech POWERED is a wireless charging stand designed for the current generation of iPhones – since they are the first of the kind to support technology – so that you can use your device in portrait and portrait mode while charging. It has a U-shaped holder that snaps on your phone, so you can use it without having to hold it, and it works even if the iPhone is in a protective case of up to three millimeters. There is also built-in overheat protection to prevent damage.
Because it is a Qi wireless charger, the POWERED also works technically with every other smartphone that is equipped with the same technology but is optimized for Apple devices. That means that while the iPhones charge 7.5 W, other phones will be limited to a somewhat slow 5W. In theory, the charger should also work with the upcoming iPhone models, but it is unknown whether it will deliver the full 7.5 W or treat it like any other Qi-compatible phone.
The Logitech POWERED wireless charger will be available in a single white version, at least for the time being, and it will be launched later this month for $69.99 on Logitech’s website or in Apple stores.
