Apple Store replaces AirPower with Mophie multi-device wireless chargers

After giving up on creating the AirPower charger, which could have charged several iPhones at once, the Apple Store is now offering a pair of multi-device chargers developed by Mophie.

While it’s easy to tease Apple for this, Mophie went for a much simpler design. AirPower would have merged several charging coils, allowing iPhones placed anywhere on the mat to charge.

In contrast, the Mophie Wireless Charging Dual Pad has two separate coils, and devices must be centered on them to receive power. It broadcasts 7.5W, the most an iPhone or AirPods wireless charging case can receive.

The $99.95 accessory, which debuted this morning on the Apple Store, has a USB-A port so a third device can charge.

Plus there’s another new option. The Apple Store just began offering the 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad from Mophie. This includes a place for an iPhone, a dedicated cavity for AirPods, and an integrated charging stand for Apple Watch.

The Mophie 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad is now on the Apple Store for $139.95.

“With smooth, polished finishes that look sleek on any desk or tabletop, the Mophie wireless charging pads provide the most convenient way to charge up to a trio of favorite devices,” said Chris Ahern, CEO of Zagg, Mophie’s parent company.

In addition, the Apple Store just began offering a pair of Mophie car chargers. The USB-C Car Charger ($24.95) has a single 18W USB-C port, while the Dual USB Car Charger ($29.95) has the same as well as a 12W USB-A port.
