In a world awash with multi-device charging stations that juice your iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods at the same time, it’s refreshing to see an unfamiliar design once in a while. Intelli provided one recently when it launched its new StepUp Magnetic Wireless Charging Station.

With its tidy little pop-out charging platforms, the MagSafe-compatible StepUp can be a sleek charger just for your iPhone or transform into a 3-in-1 for your trio of devices. But even fully deployed, the design is compact.

Intelli StepUp Magnetic Wireless Charging Station

Upon the StepUp’s release over the holidays, Intelli called it “a clutter-free magnetic wireless charging station.” The sleek and versatile charger offers up to 15W of power delivery.

The real innovation here, though, is the pop-out panels. They let users charge multiple devices simultaneously, like an iPhone 12 or 13, an Apple Watch and an AirPods charging case. If you don’t pop them out, it’s a sleek iPhone charger.

MagSafe-compatible magnets hold the phone securely in place while charging, offering 7.5W of wireless charging for iPhones plus 5W for AirPods and 2.5W for Apple Watch.

The AirPods and Apple Watch charging docks on StepUp can be pushed in or popped out. That lets you have a sleek charger just for your iPhone or, with panels deployed, a compact charger for phone, Apple Watch and AirPods charging case. And because it’s wireless, you suffer no cable clutter.

Pricing and availability

You can purchase the Intelli StepUp Magnetic Wireless Charging Station on the company’s website or on Amazon for $69.99.
