The problem with having a mobile phone, an Apple Watch and a tablet isn’t that you’ve got a lot of devices, it’s that you have a lot of different chargers.

Just Mobile, the folks behind the popular TENC Air phone cases, is attempting to solve this problem with Encore Wireless, a Kickstarter project that launched last week.

Encore Wireless serves three functions: It’s a wireless charging pad, a two-port USB charger and an angle-adjustable smartphone stand. The company says the design goal of the Encore is to keep a working desktop tidy by consolidating charging into one neat package.

The Qi-certified wireless charging pad packs two coils, making it easier to just drop the phone and start charging. A smart chip detects what phone is on the pad to ensure optimal current is supplied. That means 7.5 watts for an iPhone or 10 watts for the Samsung Galaxy 10, for example.

The Encore also serves as a smartphone stand with adjustable viewing angle, making video calls and binge-watching a snap.

The device will retail for $59.95 and come in two colors: silver and rose gold. If the campaign goes as scheduled, manufacturing will start in July, with products shipping in August.
