One of the nicest features of second-gen AirPods and AirPods Pro is wireless charging built into the case—it’s just convenient. And while a lot of modern wireless charging pads have specific spots designed for the AirPods case, there’s never been a dedicated wireless charger just for compatible AirPods. Until now, anyway.
Satechi’s new wireless charging dock connects to the USB-C port on your MacBook, iPad Pro, or other computer, providing a clean and convenient place for you to charge your AirPods. It’s up for pre-order on Satechi’s website right now for $30, but you can grab it for $25 with the coupon code “AIRPODS.” It’s expected to ship sometime in May.
This Satechi charging dock works with all models of the AirPods and AirPods Pro, provided that they’re in a wireless charging case. It has a maximum wireless charging speed of 5 watts, which is perfect for the AirPods.
It’s worth mentioning that any Qi-certified wireless charging pad can charge the AirPods (and your phone). The Satechi wireless dock is unique for its small, cable-free footprint, and it’s made specifically for Apple users who want a clean setup at their desk.
