At IFA Berlin, ZENS today announced a new range of wireless chargers, each including an ultra-thin aluminum design. All of the new wireless chargers will be available beginning September 15.

First is the Single Aluminum Wireless Charger, which is a simple single-device Qi-enabled wireless charging pad, much like those launched from companies including Belkin, Mophie, Anker, RAVPower, and more. ZENS' solution supports fast charging and has a maximum output of 10 watts, and will cost $49.99 at launch.

The next accessory is the Dual Aluminum Wireless Charger, which can charge two Qi-compatible smartphones at the same time, with a total output of 20 watts. This charger is priced at $79.99.

Lastly, the Dual+Watch Aluminum Wireless Charger also charges two smartphones simultaneously, but includes an additional perch for the Apple Watch. Similar to the Dual Aluminum Wireless Charger, the Dual+Watch accessory supports fast charging and has a total output of 20 watts. This one is also MFI-certified and is priced at $99.99.

Unlike the AirPower, for the ZENS Dual and Dual+Watch Wireless Chargers you will need to place devices in a certain position on the mat to charge. With Apple's upcoming wireless charger, there isn't a required "sweet spot" for iPhones or the Apple Watch, as they can be placed anywhere on the mat to be charged.

More announcements are expected to come out of IFA Berlin, which doesn't officially kick off until this Friday, August 31, and lasts through September 5.

Glad that Apple mat that still *doesn't exist* doesn't require a 'sweet spot' for charging.

I do think these are sleek but I'm really putting my money on Apple's mat that supposedly has the ability to put the device anywhere. My current mat is frustrating when in the morning my phone is dead because I missed the sweet spot or it got nudged off it after I placed it on. My wife even stopped using her mat in favor or plugging it in directly, for this same reason.

Don't order unless you have an EU outlet to plug into. I ordered one, great idea as it offered what I needed. However after I finally got mine this week I went to use it and found the wrong power cord was in the box, it was an EU cord, not a US cord. I emailed them about this and will see if they offer to send a US power cord or how to return it, given its an International Shipment this will not be fun to return. What would a company only provide an EU cord obviously this is being marketed globally,

Lastly, the Dual+Watch Aluminum Wireless Charger ('https://www.makezens.com/shop/zens-dualwatch-aluminium-wireless-charger/') also charges two smartphones simultaneously, but includes an additional perch for the Apple Watch.
Intriguing, but I’m a little confused by a certain element in the design choice. This seems to get it almost right, while completely missing the point. Why wouldn’t this model feature a second Apple Watch perch? Presumably this is designed for couples, so that they can charge both their phones at the same time at the same location. Wouldn’t it make sense that they might both have an Apple Watch?

The elevated charger for the watch is great!
The AirPower would not be useful for some of our watch straps by the metal closed loop design.
