Zens today announced the launch of a new 4-in-1 Magnetic Wireless Charger that's designed to work with Apple's latest iPhone 12 models.

The 4-in-1 charger offers a magnetic charging puck that is compatible with the iPhone 12. Zens says that it is a 15W magnetic charger, but it's worth noting that third-party chargers that are not using Apple's official MagSafe solution are limited to 7.5W Qi charging speeds.

The magnetic charger can be used with an iPhone in either portrait or landscape mode, and it places the iPhone at an ideal angle for watching videos, FaceTiming, and more.

In addition to the magnetic charging surface for an iPhone 12, there's also a 5W charging pad that can be used for a second iPhone or for the AirPods.

For the Apple Watch, there's an included (and removable) Apple Watch charging puck, and along with these three charging options, there's a built-in USB-A port for charging a fourth device. The 4-in-1 charger comes with a 30W PD power adapter.

The 4-in-1 Magnetic Wireless Charger can be purchased from the Zens website for 139.99 euros, which is right around $165. Zens offers worldwide shipping.

Considering the ZENS Liberty always smelled like burnt plastic and I ended up basically storing it away… no thanks

They are in Europe so even if you have to send it back like I did you’ll have to pay the shipping so not worth it

For the wireless charger I bought from them (the one with 2 wireless chargers and a watch charger), one of the wireless charging sides stopped working a short while later. I still use it to charge my Apple Watch and iphone after a failed return attempt. Aesthetics is not bad overall but the QC seems pretty hit and miss.

Took a $170 risk with the Zens Liberty last year. Really happy with it. Free placement of 2 devices all over the large surface and a puck for the Apple Watch. Probably as close to AirPower as I’ll ever get. Not sure if I’ll upgrade to this or not. It would be an easier sell if it used 15W official MagSafe charging.

just 7.5W and 5W? I’ll stick with the lightneng port and hope Apple comes to their senses and produces an iPhone with a USB-C port. The only way I will convert to wireless charging is no iPhone port at all. On phones with a port, magnetic charging is all novelty.

I like these for the phone only. The watch charger ruins the looks for me. I have a separate spot for my watch but a MagSafe mount like that for a phone is nice. Just sell the phone only mount

Agree with everything!

I quite like it….but not at that price. People are twits if they pay this much for a flipping charger. Seriously, they need their head looking at! ?

FLAWS: Tilt not adjustable (angle is NOT ideal for bedside use), USB-A is dead, cord should attach/detach via USB-C so the cord could also be used to charge an iPad or MacBook if one wanted to upgrade the power brick.
