Logitech today debuted a new series of POWERED wireless charging options, which includes a POWERED Stand, a POWERED Pad, and a POWERED 3-in-1 dock for charging iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods.


Priced at $129.99, Logitech's POWERED Wireless Charging 3-in-1 Dock is a compact charger that accommodates an iPhone in an upright charging position alongside a charging space for AirPods, AirPods Pro, or an additional iPhone at the bottom of the dock and a matching upright pedestal for charging an Apple Watch.


Logitech's POWERED Wireless Charging Stand, priced at $59.99, is a simple upright charging solution that's designed to work with an iPhone that supports Qi-based wireless charging or the AirPods. It is not compatible with the AirPods Pro.


Logitech's POWERED Wireless Charging Pad, priced at $40, is the company's simplest charging option of the three. It's a standard square-shaped Qi-based wireless charger that has a clean, no frills design.


All three of Logitech's new POWERED wireless chargers can be purchased in graphite or white, with additional lilac and blue sage colors available for the Pad. They all charge Apple's iPhones at 7.5W, which is the maximum charging speed supported at this time.

Logitech says that there are a combination of internal heat sensors and algorithms that are designed to manage temperature to prevent overheating and ensure optimal power for the quickest charging.

The new POWERED charging options can be purchased from the Logitech website in the U.S. and Canada starting today.

These look nice.

While the chargers support 7.5 watts, I thought iOS 13 limited wireless charging to 5 Watts.

Anyone know for sure?

If Apple releases a new iPhone with faster wireless charging speeds (similar to Android bretheren), 7.5W will become obsolete..... Nice concept though, with the apple watch charger in tow.

It's crazy that Apple with the trillions of dollars they have gave up on AirPower.
Akin to AirTile, AirpodsPro Lite, AppleHeadphone, AppleSpectacles, AppleCar, iTV, MacBook 14” and other products in the Apple pipeline. Incredible how many products a TRILLION DOLLAR company can simultaneously handle. Product commitment that only Tim can inspire...
O ehh...I beg you pardon - Tim was talking AR !

If it includes the Apple Watch charging ability then it's a little better but... I've already given up on this type of "charging" station and went out and got an Anker wireless charger ($11.95) and a cheap 3rd party Apple Watch charger cable for $24 (though I'd recommend the Apple Watch cable at $29).

So for ... $40.95 I've got a phone wireless charger and an Apple Watch charger, add $11.95 for another wireless charger = $52.90. A $76 markup is kinda pricey.

does it really only use one power cable though, or do I have to jerry-rig the Apple Watch power in there as well? They always leave that out of the picture...
I purchased a wireless charger just like this, returned it the next day. I didn't buy an empty plastic puck so I could wire in my existing charger and essentially just "re-skin" my Apple Watch charger
That being said, the website for the product lists wattage for the charger so I would assume it comes with the Apple watch charger installed

Never again Logitech! I purchased the original powered charging stand. Worked perfectly with the iPhone XS, but it only charges the iPhone 11 Pro at 5W. Contacted support, social media, they never said a word. Very disappointed since it was an expensive purchase.

Airpods Pro not supported in the new version at it seems. Only regular airpods.

I have this:


and I love it, and at 20% of the price of the Logitech...but it does require using the stock Apple Watch charger.

Additionally, a 14 inch MacBook has been rumored, within the last week, to be released this year. And "AppleSpectacles" I am assuming is the AR glasses which are still rumored to be coming. And AirTile? do you mean the still rumored to be released this year AirTags?

I bought a base station that does wireless for phone, watch and plug-in airpods and pencil...all without having to use your cords for $20 on Amazon.

I thought IOS 13 limited third-party wireless charging to 5W?
Airpods Pro are supported?

My iPhone 11 ProMax charges at 7.5W wirelessly on iOS 13, so says my USB-C meter. I sincerely doubt the charger itself is consuming a whole 2.5 watts...

Do any of these docking stations fold up easily for transport? I may have to travel a lot for work.

If you're okay without the Apple Watch charger, from Hyperdrive: https://www.hypershop.com/collectio...erdrive-7-5w-wireless-charger-stand-usb-c-hub

That one also acts as a USB-C dock. There's another that goes without the docking feature: https://www.hypershop.com/collectio...oducts/hyperjuice-7-5w-wireless-charger-stand

Most of the other stands are built to be put on a nightstand or desk and not for portable use. Wireless charging isn't exactly ideal as a portable power source any way. It means carrying around a bulky pad that also happens to need a power supply and cable so it's just extra weight and volume.
