Best Alternatives for the Apple Airpower Mat iMore 2019

Apple threw in the towel and canceled the product known as AirPower, which was a wireless charging pad that was going to be able to charge your iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods 2 all together at once. If you've been waiting for AirPower this long, you're likely disappointed by the news; however, there are other products out there that offer very similar solutions to what Apple was promising us with there Qi charging pad.

3-in-1 charging: Nomad Base Station Apple Watch Edition

Staff Favorite

If you really want the closest experience you can get to what AirPower was promising us, the Nomad Base Station Apple Watch Edition is the option for you. With enough space on the wireless charging pad for two devices — your iPhone and AirPods — the Nomad Base Station Apple Watch Edition has a built-in charger for your Apple Watch.

Low-budget option: Eurpmask Dual Wireless Charger

Although big enough to fit your iPhone and Apple Watch, this charging pad is compact and easy to carry with you wherever you go, meaning you don't have to travel with multiple cords ever again! Plus, with 7.5W output for your iPhone and a 2W output for your Apple Watch, your batteries will be filled up in no time! One important thing to know though is that it's only compatible with the Apple Watch Series 2 and later.

Non-wireless option: OLEBR All-in-One Charging Station

While this isn't a wireless charging pad, I would be remiss if I didn't at least mention one way you could charge your iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods at the same time. OLEBR's All-in-One Charging Station features an iPhone dock, an Apple Watch dock, and a dock to hold your AirPods and AirPods case. Note that no Lightning cables are included with this one and this dock is made of polished aluminum and comes in black, rose gold, space gray, and silver

Charging hub: Nomad Base Station

This three-coil charger will charge up your iPhone no matter how you toss it and is big enough to fit two devices on the charging surface alone. Both your AirPods and your iPhone should fit nicely on the pad and the Nomad Wireless Charging Hub can charge even more devices with the included USB-A and USB-C ports. Your Apple Watch charger can easily plug into the side, while your AirPods and iPhone sit on top, and you could still even charge your iPad Pro if you wanted.

One cable simplicity: Belkin Powerhouse Charge Dock

The Belkin Powerhouse Charge Dock is one of the most elegant solutions to charging your iPhone and Apple Watch at the same time. The best part is only needing one cord to power both the lightning connector for your iPhone and the magnetic charger for the Apple Watch. Plus, the Lightning connector can be adjusted in height, meaning even if you have a heavy-duty case you'll be able to charge your iPhone no problem.

Closest lookalike to AirPower: AirUnleashed

AirUnleashed looks a lot like how AirPower was supposed to look; however, it does functions slightly differently. Rather than being one seamless surface that can charge anything regardless of where you place the device, its a simple three coil system that is meant to charge your iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods. It works well enough, although it does require you to bring your own QuickCharge 3.0 charging brick.

We've got our personal favorites

Unfortunately, none of the products listed above are exactly a complete replacement for what AirPower was supposed to be; however, these charging solutions offer the most important part of what AirPower was going to give us — a place to change everything.

While the Nomad Base Station: Apple Watch Edition may not be white and sleek like AirPower, it is real. You can buy it right now and it'll charge your iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods 2 at the same time.

If you just spent a fortune on a new iPhone, Apple Watch, or AirPods and don't have a lot left in your wallet, the Eurpmask is a budget-friendly substitute for charging multiple wireless devices at the same time. Plus, it's got that nice white aesthetic.

If you don't need multi-device wireless charging, you're not the only one. There are hundreds of wireless charging pads, stands, and discs that are completly capable of charging a single device at a time. We know which ones are the best.
