This wireless iPhone and Apple Watch charger prevents bedtime battles [Review]

ZENS Dual Watch Aluminum Wireless Charger for iPhone Xr iPhone Xs
The Zens Dual+Watch is all you need for charging.

Our bedside table is lousy with chargers. My wife and I have separate chargers for our iPhones (Qi charging mats), my Apple Watch (a cool but bulky stand), and a new iPad Pro (a repurposed Android phone charger with USB-C). There is barely room for stacks of books and magazines, a bedside lamp, a Sonos speaker, earplugs, sleep masks, reading glasses, sleepy-time CBD tincture and other bedside junk.

Time to consolidate!

With Apple’s AirPower charging mat still AWOL and possibly dead forever, the Dual+Watch Aluminium Wireless Charger is a great three-device charger you can buy now.

Made by respected Dutch company Zens — an expert in wireless charging — the Dual+Watch charging mat fast-charges two iPhones, plus your Apple Watch. And it’s available now from the Cult of Mac Watch Store.

A pair of avid runners turned engineers have reinvented the watch band into something kind of genius, and we’ve got it in the Cult of Mac Watch Store.

Your Apple Watch provides a torrent of information – so why wear it in the same spot as the watch your great-grandfather wore? Putting key stats and info in your natural line of sight is not only easier to read, it’s easier to use and it’s safer.
