Probably user error, but I struggle every night to get my phone in the right position on this thing.

I'd honestly prefer a magsafe puck that can also charge an Apple watch. If Apple won't put USB C on the iPhone, could they at least let me consolidate the phone and watch chargers?
how does a USB-C port on the iPhone help achieve consolidating between the two devices?

It means my iPhone can share a charger with literally every other device I own.

At present, I have to have three chargers at miniumum.
Lightning for my phone.
The Apple Watch puck for my watch.
USB C for my laptop, iPad, 3x headphones, camera, power bank.

If there's a way to get that down to two chargers, I want it. One would be even better but I understand why the watch makes that less feasible.

EDIT: I'm also aware of the many multi-device charging dock/hub things that exist. I don't really consider those to be a great option because I often want to be able to hold and continue using my device while it's charging.

When on the road, I have a 30000 mAH battery (and a very large Solar Panel when needed) to provide additional power to my MacBook, iPad, iPhone and Watch as needed. Charging my phone with a cable in this scenario makes more sense, as Wireless charging is less energy savings efficient (about 25% last time I checked).

They had that complicated AirPower almost ready to go with whatever number of coils. You would think they could figure out how to build something that just had two coils in it.

Exactly. I wish Apple will update it soon with fast charging
Which is extremely important on a travel charger. I was always hoping the watch would get enough of a charge when I was in the hotel room preparing to go out to dinner, to make it through the night.

I'll give Apple some leeway on releasing products that don't fully support future products, but this is not a cheap charger, and it only lasted one year before it was severely outdated. Fast charge is a tent-pole feature of AW7. You tell me they couldn't sneak it in there last year?

This is 100% what i noticed when I traveled a few weeks ago. I brought an external anker battery and between the watch puck being USB A (i have the apple watch 4) and my iphone 13 pro magsafe accesory being the larger puck with USB C it caused a lot of headaches. I had to bring more cords with me than could be ideally. I guess this is the draw of the Duo charger, but unfortunately i dont think the value is right for me at the current time

Right here...
I thought so to, but I have enjoyed owning it.
I agree...I paid full price when it came out and it has been invaluable to me. I travel a lot for work and this is the best charger I've used to keep my watch and phone charged overnight in hotel rooms. Nice and compact, only one plug, lays right where I want it and easy to see.

At home, I have it on my nightstand next to my bed. Use to charge my watch overnight, but at home, I use the wireless area for my AirPod Pros so they not only stay charged, but are right where I need to grab them when watching TV late at night (through Apple TV).

I have long thought along this line of reasoning, and my conclusion is that even if the iPhone sported usb-c, I would still be using the same number of cables. I am not going to have just one charger on my desk and then cycle through my various peripherals. I would still be charging them all simultaneously, possibly at night.

So it's either 1 lighting + 1 usb-c for my iPhone and iPad, or 2 usb-c cables for an android phone + iPad. In both scenarios, they still use the same number of cables. .

I suppose the benefit is that when packing my accessories pouch, I can leave out my lightning cable and bring only a single usb-c cable. And the iPhone is long overdue for thunderbolt support, given the current difficulty of getting pro res footage off the device. Apple should have ditched the lightning port with the iPhone X.

The benefits are that I can charge any device from any charger. I can have one at my desk, one by the couch, one by my bed, one in my bag, etc. My devices never die all at the same time, and this way I have less cables running all over my house.

It's also easier for travelling. One cable and charging brick in the bag and I'm good.

Lastly, and honestly a much smaller reason, is the environmental factor. Yes, at first there would be a bunch of lightning cables going in the trash, but that's going to happen anyway because Apple hasn't updated the connector in like 10 years and at this point we're reaching its limits fast. Apple already ditched the brick in the box, but if I still need two cables in each charging spot, I also need two bricks.

There's literally no good reason to keep lightning on the phone when everything else in their lineup has switched over. I fully agree that they missed the right opportunity to switch with the X and then again with the 11 Pro and Pro Max.

Or, just add thunderbolt support to lightning.
