Satechi is back with a new version of the USB wireless charger launched for AirPods at the beginning of last year. The new version, which Satechi calls the USB-C Watch AirPods Charger, features a 2-in-1 design that is used to charge the Apple Watch and AirPods, depending on the direction in which you connect it to your MacBook or iPad.
Like the model launched last year, the new USB-C Watch AirPods Charger is a small disk-like accessory that plugs directly into the USB-C port on your laptop or iPad. The big difference this time is that each side of the accessory is a charging base.
When connected with the AirPods charging surface facing upwards, users can place the AirPods case directly on the dongle to charge it wirelessly. When the dongle is inverted to the opposite side facing up, the Apple Watch can be placed directly on it for charging.
The new wireless charger is made of aluminum and has a design that blends well with Apple devices. The small size of the device makes it highly portable, which means it is one of the most convenient ways to recharge your accessories when you’re out of the office, without having to carry multiple cables and chargers.
Satechi says this is an exclusive Apple accessory, so you’ll need to order it from the Apple website if you want. The device is now available for $ 49.95 USD.
