Wireless Charging Stations for Apple products Part 2


Note: make sure to read part 1 for a detailed explanation of why I consider these things important, and part 3 for newer products.

ZENS just announced the Liberty Wireless Charger. Unsurprisingly, it’s still not the device I’m looking for. Particularly price-wise. But let’s revisit the chart first:

USB-PD Power Supply USB-PD Charging Apple Watch Support Price
Mophie 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad $139.95
SliceCharge Pro $159.95
Nomad Base Station Hub Edition $99.95
Nomad Base Station Apple Watch Edition $139.95
Nomad Base Station Pro N/A
ZENS Liberty Wireless Charger $179.98

One thing perplexes me to great extent, ZENS, please enlighten me: why on Earth would I get myself a $180 charging station, if I still needed a separate charger for my notebook? Or… anything else that has a USB-C port and needs charging? I just don’t get it. It’s really not that complicated, guys. The first USB-C Macbook came out early 2015, almost five years ago. The iPad Pro’s been using USB-C since 2018. Google requires all Android phone makers to support USB-PD. USB-C and USB-PD are here to stay. It’s friggin’ time you finally embrace them.

Am I missing something here? Is there a charger that ticks all the boxes? Please let me know in the comments below!
