Sad about the death of AirPower? Take a look at these alternatives!

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. Here are some great charging pads and systems that can charge more than one device!

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 probably the closest you’ll get. 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.

All-white aesthetic

Maluokasa 2-in1 Wireless Charging Pad

Although you do have to use your existing charger for your Apple Watch, the cord and charger fit perfectly into the underside of the charging pad to keep your cables and wires from getting tangled and keep the minimal look of the charging pad intact. Plus, the pad can charge your iPhone fast with a 7.5W output, meaning you don’t need to set your phone down for long to get a lot of juice. You likely can’t

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 about the Eurpmask Dual Wireless Charger, it’s only compatible with the Apple Watch Series 2 and later, so if you have a much older Apple Watch, you’ll need something else.

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, seems like a winner to me!

6 coils

SliceCharge Pro

Though it doesn’t ship until June 2019, the SliceCharge Pro by CiderLabs is high on our list of replacements for AirPower. It’s got six, count ’em, six coils, so it’ll be very difficult to accidentally miss the charging position. This updated version fixes the previous SliceCharge model by adding an official. Made For Apple Watch, puck. So it’s much less likely that you’ll have trouble with your Apple Watch not charging correctly, even with future Apple Watches.
