For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Swiss company WhyWood to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a 3-in-1 "Pad X3" Wireless charger that's able to charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods all at the same time.


WhyWood specializes in attractive wooden charging stations for smartphones and tablets, and the Pad X3 is one of the company's most advanced wireless chargers to date, combining modern charging technology with a wood and stone design not often seen in standard electronic accessories.


Priced at 159 Swiss Francs (which is about $177 in the United States), the WhyWood Pad X3 has a flat space for charging an iPhone (or another smartphone), an upright charging puck for an Apple Watch, and a space behind the Apple Watch charger for charging AirPods.


Though it's a three device charger, the Pad X3 is compact in size, and it features a walnut, oak, or black oak wood base combined with a white matte or marble acrylic stone charging surface. It measures in at 170mm long, 98mm wide, and 22mm thick.


The charging surface is able to charge an iPhone at up to 7.5W, which is the fastest Qi-based wireless charging speed available for iPhones, but it can charge other smartphones at up to 15W. It also offers full speed charging for both the Apple Watch and the AirPods with Wireless Charging Case or the AirPods Pro.

WhyWood includes a softer cork material underneath the Pad X3 that serves to protect both the wood base and the surface that the charger is placed on. The Pad X3 ships with a 1.5 meter charging cable and a power supply.


We have three of the Pad X3 wireless chargers from WhyWood to give away to MacRumors readers, which will include the white acrylic stone top and either a walnut or oak base.

Those look so much nicer than than Apple's own solution.
People often complain about Apple sometimes being function over form. At $US50 more, this would want to look nicer, but is it better value considering it doesn’t have the function of being as portable?.

It charges 3 devices at the same time, and it comes with charging brick in the box. You buy a charger, it should come with the brick. Something so obvious if not for Apple’s environmental policy.

That fact alone worth much more than Magsafe Duo. Wood finish is also a welcome touch.

I’d pick WhyWood instead.

International territories / law / regulations. Macrumors dont want to deal with this and have more than enough entries domestically. Thats my guess.
And this is a US focussed site, with international viewers free to look on. Tbh, us intruders get a pretty good deal, because it’s the best Apple rumour site out there. Often used by mainstream media as their source of Apple news.
