    For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Choetech to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win one of the company's new PowerDual 5-coil Qi wireless chargers, capable of charging two devices at one time.

    The PowerDual is a flat, oblong-shaped pad that is equipped with five overlapping wireless coils inside. It is big enough to accommodate two smartphones at once, and because of the overlapping coils, the two devices should charge regardless of placement on the charger.

    With flat chargers, placement can be an issue because the iPhone needs to be placed right over a coil to properly charge. That's a problem that's addressed with the PowerDual. It can accommodate two devices placed vertically or one device placed horizontally.

    [​IMG]

    For iPhones, 7.5W charging is supported, and if you put two iPhones on the charger at one time, both will charge at the faster 7.5W charging speed. For Samsung devices that support faster charging speeds, 10W charging is available.

    An anti-slip surface prevents your iPhone from sliding or slipping off of the charger, and anti-slip pads at the bottom keep the charger itself in place. Heat dissipation holes at the bottom of the device keep your phone cool while it's charging to speed up the process.

    Choetech is offering the charger, priced at $35.99, in either a smooth black finish or a faux wood grain finish.

    Powering the charger is done through an included USB-C port, but a power adapter is not included. You will need to supply a 5V Quick Charge 3.0 power adapter.

    Choetech has also provided a discount code for the five coil wireless charging, discounting the price from $39.99 to $30.99. Just enter the code MACRU535 when checking out on Choetech's website.

    Looks nice! I went with some cheap Yootech chargers on Amazon, 2 pack for mid $20's. Gifted one pair to one sister and split a second pair with another sister.

    None of us can get our apple watches to charge on them. AW3 LTE 38mm, AW3 42mm or AW4 LTE 44mm. I think part of the problem is the band, the watch just wont lay flat on them. I was really hoping to eliminate the watch charger from my night stand. Maybe if they had a dimple for the back of the watch to seat into the watch would charge.

    I rarely enter contests on MacRumors, but I entered this one, as this looks pretty cool. Would be perfect if there was a white option to look less obvious on my white nightstand or kitchen countertops. Would definitely buy if available in white.

    Hmm. Faux wood grain finish? How about that faux circuit board in the picture, let alone coils that don’t connect to anything... I know, illustration purposes only, surely.

    I don’t own an Apple Watch or any wirelessly charging phone, but could you try setting the charger down on a platform small enough so that you could slide the watch around the charging pad from the side?

    What band prevents this? I have a sport loop but it’s easy to flip it inside out. Anything else should open wide enough to sit flat, except for link bracelets, right?

    Somebody actually wants a white accessory? I am kind of a clean freak, especially about the kitchen, but a white charging pad (unless it’s some material that avoids dirt easily) would be a nightmare to keep clean.

    $31 for a charging pad this size is a great deal. I entered, as both my wife and I have wireless charging iPhones and went ahead and ordered one. So convenient to have wireless charging around the house.

    Never do these giveaways but signed up for this one. I ended up buying one anyways. Was looking for something exactly like this and who knows when Apple will release the AirPower...if ever.

    Does anyone here know anything about the durability of this company’s products? Their Twitter is kinda sketchy and before I plop $30 down on this I wanna know if anyone has used their stuff before. TIA.

    Shame that it doesn’t come in white. My walls are white. My furniture is white. My bed is white. My floor is... well, almost white. Black tech really shouts for attention.

    More than white!? I viewed it as the opposite. Darker colors kinda fade out of the foreground (hence why everyone was clamoring for dark mode in macOS).

    Well, computer screens are inherently brighter than painted walls, so I guess it makes sense to go in the opposite direction.

    I emailed Cheotech customer support and got this response within a few minutes:

    Sorry it couldn’t support Apple Watch, but we do have a wireless charger that would support iPhone and Apple Watch 4, it will release in next month.

    Pfft, it doesn’t even charge Apple Watches :rolleyes:

    I’ll stick to my Nomad Base Station Apple Watch Edition.

    Would Love to have this.

    Just got an iPhone 8 256GB (I'm back again) after 2mths hiadus on "SE" so this would work perfectly for the IP8.
