Logitech Reveals Wireless Charging 3-in-1 Dockby Anton Shilov on March 12, 2020 3:00 PM EST

Nowadays many people use more than one mobile device that needs charging, but charging them using separate chargers is sometimes inconvenient since they use too many wires or power sockets and create a mess. After Apple had cancelled its universal AirPower wireless charging mat for three devices, numerous makers of wireless chargers came up with their own 2-in-1, 3-in-1, and even 4-in-1 charging docks. This week Logitech joined the club with its Powered Wireless Charging 3-in-1 Dock, that is also accompanied by a dedicated charging pad, as well as and a charging stand, for those who only need to charge one device at a time.
The Logitech Powered Wireless Charging 3-in-1 Dock is designed to charge a modern iPhone, an Apple Watch, and AirPods charging case simultaneously. The device has two triple-coil surfaces (flat pad and upright stand) that can deliver up to 10 W of power (each), as well as a knob for Apple Watch that can deliver up to 5 W of power for a total of 25 W. The dock is fully compliant with the Qi specification, so it can work with other Qi-compliant devices from manufacturers such as Samsung or LG. Furthermore, with two 10-W surfaces, it is possible to charge two smartphones using the regular phone stand as well as the pad for headset.
Logitech says that its "Powered"-series devices feature all kinds of protection, including foreign object detection, protection from overheating, and overcharging.
The Powered Wireless Charging 3-in-1 Dock is made polycarbonate as well as silicone, and comes in graphite or white. The unit costs $129.99, so it is quite a lot more expensive than some of the competing products from less well-known manufacturers.
In addition to the Wireless Charging 3-in-1 Dock, Logitech’s Powered family also includes Powered Wireless Charging Stand for $59.99, as well as Powered Wireless Charging Pad for $39.99. Both feature similar triple-coil internal designs and are rated for 10 W.

name99 - Friday, March 13, 2020 - linkDoes anyone here actually WANT these horribly shaped dock things? To me they look like every other dock in human history -- a marriage of shapes and materials that will not age well, and will likely look stupid, with poor mating to new products, by the time 2023 is done.
There is a reason Apple envisioned a simple flat mat as their wireless solution. That is what people want. Even if companies don't have the tech to deliver the full Apple vision of arbitrary placement, they can presumably deliver the simpler vision of the above eye-sore flattened to an oval or rectangular mat, no?
Hulk - Saturday, March 14, 2020 - linkWell said. I agree 100%.
CityBlue - Sunday, March 15, 2020 - linkIt's getting on for 9 years old but in terms of convenience the Panasonic QE-TM101-K charging pad was the best Qi charger by a country mile:
I imported mine from Japan many years ago and it's still going strong, my tablet and phone devices haven't seen a USB cable in all that time and I greatly appreciate the convenience of not answering a phone in the middle of the night which is then yanked out of my hand by an attached charging cable.
