Many wireless chargers are designed to serve three mobile devices. The RapidX MyPort is made to selflessly serve one device in three different ways.
MyPort is first a smartphone stand to wirelessly charge your iPhone. But the vertical charging element has a restless side. It begs to be detached from the base to travel as a companion to your iPhone. It works as a portable wireless charger. And, with its two USB ports (one USB-A, one USB-C), it becomes a quick-charging wired power bank.
RapidX MyPort review
With a boss, black finish, MyPort will appeal to a select sensibility — the user who relies on a smartphone more than any other device. It’s not a 3-in-1 charger; it’s more versatile.
It proves ideal for me. I don’t wear an Apple Watch. (Instead, I check the time on my iPhone.) I don’t have AirPods. (I live with music differently.) Even if I had those gadgets, I would gravitate toward the RapidX MyPort.
My iPhone is my GPS for when I am driving. It is the way I check three different email accounts when I’m in the field. And, as a photographer, it is a tool in heavy rotation. MyPort puts confidence in my pocket — confidence that I will have power for my iPhone on the longest of days.
A portable wireless charging mat
The RapidX MyPort’s battery capacity comes in at 10,000 mAh. When disconnected from the stand and used as a Qi-certified wireless charging mat, it can deliver two to three full charges (depending on your iPhone model).
As a fully charged power bank detached from the stand, MyPort provides enough juice for two full charges to an iPhone XS. After that, my iPhone hit 42% of a third charge before I had to place the charging mat back on the stand for charging.
An iPhone charging stand
Charging this way (10 watts) seemed fast enough. However, since the USB ports both deliver 18 watts, plugging in gives a faster charge. And while I said upfront the MyPort is for smartphones, you could plug your iPad into the power mat for charging.
The one shortcoming is keeping the iPhone in touch with the charging coil inside the MyPort charging mat when both are in a bag. A tight pocket can possibly keep the two in contact wirelessly. A USB charging cord solves this problem.
