There’s a new wireless charging option for multi-device households. The Mophie 4-in-1 Wireless Charging Mat can handle multiple iPhones and AirPods cases in a single unit.

And an USB-A port with Apple Watch adapter raises the total to five.

“The average home isn’t always designed with today’s power needs in mind and lacks an adequate number of outlets,” said Charlie Quong, VP of product development at Zagg, Mophie’s parent company. “With the 4-in-1 Wireless Charging Mat, Mophie helps people embrace wireless charging and lower the number of cords needed to successfully charge today’s smartphones and portable devices.”

The accessory has room for three iPhones at once. Alternatively, there’s space for two handsets and two AirPods Wireless Charging Cases. Many Androids support Qi wireless charging as well.

Mophie built in “valleys” to simplify aligning the charging coils in the handset and the mat. The accessory provides up to 10W of power to each device, and it charges through cases up to 3mm thick.

The 4-in-1 Wireless Charging Mat also includes a USB-A port to charge wired devices, like an iPad. Alternatively, an Apple Watch charger plugs into this port, and there’s a dock for this charger.

Mophie filmed a demo trailer to show the product in use.

Zagg began offering the Mophie 4-in-1 Wireless Charging Mat on Tuesday. It costs $149.95. The product is also available from Verizon, Best Buy, AT&T, T-Mobile, Target and other retailers.

Of course, there are rival multi-device wireless charging mats. The Courant Catch:2 is one example. Or the Liberty from Zens has a glass top to show off the charging coils.
