AirPower alternatief: 4 opladers voor meerdere apparaten tegelijk

(April 5, 2019) -

Het hoge woord is eruit: Apple heeft AirPower geschrapt. De draadloze oplaadmat werd in 2017 aangekondigd, tegelijk met de eerste draadloze iPhones. Maar Apple slaagde er uiteindelijk niet in om een product te ontwikkelen dat voldeed aan hun eigen strenge kwaliteitseisen. Het annuleren van AirPower is balen als je een iPhone 8 of nieuwer hebt, of AirPods met de vernieuwde draadloos oplaadbare case. Je bent voor draadloos opladen nu aangewezen op Qi-opladers van fabrikanten buiten Apple om. Op zoek naar een AirPower alternatief? Eentje waarbij je ook nog meerdere apparaten tegelijk kunt opladen? Wij hebben een paar opties voor je.

ZENS Dual Qi Draadloze Oplader

Met deze oplader kun je twee apparaten opladen, bijvoorbeeld je iPhone en draadloos oplaadbare AirPods. Laat je niet van de wijs brengen door het woord ‘dual’, want er is nog ruimte voor een derde apparaat: de Apple Watch heeft zijn eigen plek.

Best Alternatives to Apple’s Now-Canceled AirPower

(March 30, 2019) -

Apple on Friday made the unprecedented move of canceling work on the AirPower, the wireless charging mat that was supposed to charge the Apple Watch, iPhone, and AirPods all at once.

There are already a number of AirPower-like alternative products on the market, and we’re likely going to be seeing additional replacements in the future. None of these accessories do exactly what the AirPower promised because there are dedicated spots to charge each device, but each option will charge more than one device at one time.

#3. ZENS Dual + Watch Wireless Charger (99 euros) – The Dual + Watch Wireless Charger from European company ZENS is another option that we recently reviewed and were impressed with. It has a stand for charging an Apple Watch, along with a base that can wirelessly charge two iPhones at one time. It’s 99 euros which is pricy, but ZENS does ship worldwide. This dock is temporarily out of stock, but it’s coming back in May.

Now that AirPower is dead, here are some of the best wireless charger alternatives

(March 29, 2019) -

In a Friday afternoon announcement, Apple shared today that AirPower is officially dead. The news came as a surprise as support for the special wireless charging mat was found in a recent iOS beta and other evidence was pointing to an imminent release. Now that Apple’s advanced wireless charger is off the table, let’s take a look at some of the best AirPower alternatives you can buy today.

Over the last year, we’ve reviewed a variety of wireless chargers at 9to5Mac that AirPower would have competed with. Notably, none of them offer all the features that AirPower was supposed to, but no company has figured out how to bring all of that functionality to market in one package.

While the following AirPower alternatives all feature some pros and cons, most of them offer the convenience of charging up to three devices at once in a single product and include Qi wireless compatibility. The good news is that all of these likely cost less than what Apple would have charged for AirPower. Let’s take a look:

ZENS 
A mostly unknown name, but this company offers an interesting choice. ZENS’ aluminum wireless charger has a sharp look. 9to5Mac’s Ben Lovejoy reviewed the three device wireless charger priced at $100.
