MacRumors Giveaway: Win a 'Dockit W3' Handmade iPhone and Apple Watch Dock from WhyWood

by

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with WhyWood to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win something a little bit out of the ordinary - a high quality wooden iPhone and Apple Watch dock made primarily by hand in Switzerland.

The WhyWood Dockit W3, made from oak or walnut, can charge multiple devices all at once.


It has a 7.5W wireless charger for charging the latest 2017 and 2018 iPhones at maximum wireless charging speed, a Lightning port for charging the AirPods or Apple TV Remote, and a built-in magnetic Apple Watch charger for charging the Apple Watch Series 1 through 4 models.


Each dock is available with a black or white accent stripe, and feet made from microsuction tape make sure the dock stays in place on your desk or nightstand.

At the back of the Dockit, there are two USB 3.0 ports for charging additional devices, along with a Smart USB charger that features a 4.6-foot cord. WhyWood says that up to five devices can be charged at their fastest possible charging speed using the dock.


Each Dockit has been designed with safety features that include short circuit prevention, temperature control, output voltage surge protection, and power overload recovery.

Because it's made largely by hand in Switzerland and has multiple ports built in, the Dockit W3 is priced starting at $193 for the 7.5W charging version. WhyWood also offers other Dockit configurations like the Dockit W1 with 7.5W charger and Lightning connector, or the Dockit W2 with 7.5W charger and Apple Watch charger, or the Dockit 2L1W with two Lightning ports and an Apple Watch charger.


The Dockit W3, which is the dock we're giving away, is the most feature rich version that WhyWood offers. It is available with or without engraving, and a company logo can also be included.


We have two of the Dockit W3s to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win our giveaway, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address.
