What you need to know

  • Zero has announced three new wireless charging accessories.
  • One product is a magnetic wireless charger, one is a cube for charging multiple devices at once on the move, and another is a home dock.

Zero has announced three new Qi chargers, all designed to work together as part of a new wireless charging system. All three products are available for order now, with prices starting at $49.99.

Kicking things off is the new Wireless Qi Pad, a magnetic charger that packs a 3,000mAh battery and can be used with any iPhone thanks to the included magnetic sticker. These things will work fine with any Qi-compatible device, including the recent iPhone 13.

The slim Zero Qi-Certified Pad battery magnetically attaches itself to the back of a Qi-enabled phone, providing a hassle-free wireless charging capacity of 3,000 mAh. In Addition, the included magnetic pad allows the Qi Pad battery to attach easily to any Qi-Compatible smartphone over rubber or plastic phone cases up to 4mm thick.

Next is the rather interesting Travel Cube, a portable battery pack that can power two Wireless Qi Pads while also charging a third accessory at the same time. Perfect for when you're staying away from home, for example.

The Zero Qi Pad-charging Travel Cube provides power wherever the user goes. It charges up to two Zero Wireless Qi Pads at the same time. An extra USB C port powers one additional device, such as a phone or tablet. LED lights indicate at a glance the remaining charge level in the Travel Cube. Its slim, compact design fits easily in a backpack or handbag.

Finally, the Home Dock is a place for powering things when you're at home. It'll charge two Wireless Qo Pads simultaneously as well as another device using Qi. Again, this is designed to keep everything powered for when you need it most.

The Zero Home Dock gives users a place to recharge their Wireless Qi pads after a full day's usage. It charges up to two Wireless Qi Pads simultaneously. In addition, the unit works with rubber or plastic phone cases up to 4mm thick, allowing for charging without removing the case.

You can learn more, and place an order, over on the Zero website right now. Again, prices begin at $49.99 and all three products could combine to make the best iPhone charging solution yet.
