I now have the triple crown. I have my iPhone X (shipping by 11/3), my Apple Watch 3, and my AirPods. Now I need the darn Apple wireless charging pad. It would have been great for Apple to release it along with the iPhone X. What could be the hold up? I need it now. I don't want to waste money and buy another brand now and then buy the Apple brand next year. Come on Apple!

It's difficult to say. It Could be manufacturing time lines or production start times. But I believe they will be available early 2018, around March.

Oh really? The case I have now is not wireless charging? I purchased mine at the end of last month. Ok I feel like a dummy. I won't need to buy new AirPods but just the case?

You could opt for Belkin's. From the reviews I've read it seems to be pretty good and priced about the same as Apple's.

Unless I'm mistaken, I have not seen a Belkin that accommodates more than one device at a time.

That is true. Since I don’t have any other devices that support wireless charging (don’t have the newest Apple Watch) that feature was not important to me. However, if that weren’t the case i, most likely, just wait on Apple’s charger to be released next year.
