Mophie today introduced a new 3-in-1 wireless charging stand, which is designed to work with Apple's MagSafe Charger, which is not included.

The 3-in-1 Stand for MagSafe Charger features a wireless charging pad designed for the AirPods or AirPods Pro, an Apple Watch charging puck, and an upright stand where a MagSafe Charger can be inserted.

Mophie is asking $90 for the 3-in-1 Stand for MagSafe Charger, but customers will also need to own a MagSafe Charger, which is priced at $40, bringing the total price for this accessory to $130.

The 3-in-1 Stand for MagSafe is made from white plastic and a silver aluminum material, so it does match the MagSafe Charger and there's a near seamless look. The Wireless Charging Stand has a cable for the AirPods charger and the Apple Watch Charger, but you will need a separate power adapter for the MagSafe cable.

Mophie's stand offers all of the benefits of MagSafe, including support for landscape or portrait modes, magnetic attachment, easy placement and fitting, and 15W wireless charging (12W for the iPhone 12 mini).

The 3-in-1 Stand for MagSafe Charger can be purchased from Apple or from Mophie for $89.95.

Love to see more people making these but…At that price, just go ahead and get the Belkin 3 in 1 stand! I guffawed at the price at launch but splurged when I did a bedroom remodel and it’s easily one of the best tech/tech accessories purchases in years. Simple, good looking, charges all without ever plugging in anything or needing an extra cord.

What a stupid product. This would require 2 cords to charge everything, right? Why not just get the Belkin version for a couple bucks more?

Show of hands: How many have one outlet in a duplex receptacle where one is switched for lights, etc?

It's getting so crowded on the floor in the bedroom, power strips everywhere. Two receptacles should have been installed, so that there was One socket for the lights, and Three sockets for the other stuff. At least I could use smaller power strips.

Or buy the Anker version refurbed through Anker for $29.99; power adapter sold separately and uses your existing Apple Watch charger. Buy 3 qualifying items for 12% off as well. I have two of these, and they've worked very well to charge my phone, AirPods, and Apple Watch.

Big fail with requiring a separate power brick for the MagSafe puck. Surely they could have integrated a USB-C port with some cable management in the bottom so you could just have one cable coming out the back. It's fine for a sub-$50 price point the way it is, but as others have pointed out, at almost $100 plus the MagSafe puck, you might as well just buy the Belkin 3-in-1.

I got something very similar to this on Amazon for about 30 bucks. It requires the watch charger as well as the MagSafe , and the AirPod is a little lightning nub, no Qi. Still a way better value, and frankly it looks better than this overpriced thing.

Almost pulled the trigger on this till I learned it needs 2 outlets and will have 2 cords coming out the back. I don’t love the style of the Belkin stand but that’s the kind of functionality and feature set I expect at this point.

That is a sweet looking stand.
Two power cables isn't an issue for me if there was a way to plug into the stand the lightning for my iPad mini.

I like it, only the indented AirPods charger ruins it for me because I have additional qi devices that I would like to be able to charge at my desk.

I don’t fully understand it at all. So I install my MagSafe for my iPhone to charge, my watch charger for my watch (that’s 2 cables thus far) and so what charges the airpods exactly? Have they built their own wireless charger for that which requires a third power cable?

The website shows a power input on the back that seems unrelated to the MagSafe, but does a poor job of explaining what the unit itself can charge and what external chargers can be fit onto it. I like the concept but there needs to be more clarity on this.

Typically these setups have you plug the other end of the apple chargers into ports under the base.

Can anyone explain to me the appeal of having a stand to charge things? Not meaning to be obtuse, honestly, I just don't get it. My guess is that, for one thing, having a stand is more organised than having a bunch of cables. But then, why not just a matt instead? Thanks for your reply!

Because you can look at incoming notifications on a stand without having to pick something up. Also if your device has an always on display, it will show the clock and other useful info

Actually - you don't need a second power adaptor, there is a USB-C outlet in the unit base which the MagSafe puck plugs into and then all power is drawn from the single included adapter. I will admit that adaptor is a bit chunky (or at least the Aussie version is) but it IS just one outlet required.
