Satechi today announced the launch of a new Aluminum Type-C PD & QC Wireless Charger that's designed to charge iPhone and Android devices at their maximum wireless charging speeds.

For iPhones, that means the wireless charger will offer 7.5W charging speeds, while Android devices will charge at up to 10W.

Satechi's new wireless charger is a flat charger that's made from silver or space gray aluminum with a black mat at the top to keep the smartphone from shifting around while charging.

According to Satechi, the wireless charger has multiple safety features built in, including temperature protection and foreign object detection that will turn the charger off if unwanted metal objects or temperature spikes are detected.

An integrated LED light is included to let users know when a device is charging, and light color will vary based on charging speed.

Satechi's Aluminum Type-C PD & QC Wireless Charger can be purchased from the Satechi website or from Amazon for $44.99. A quick charge adapter is not included and will need to be purchased separately for maximum charging speeds.

I'm good with slower charging in some cases. When I plug in my phone next to my bed, it can take its sweet time to charge up if it wants. Keeps the battery healthy.

I still haven't been compelled to buy anything more than a 5w wireless charger. I charge at night and I have one on my desk at work, and they were $6.

I typically don’t mind MR’s ads-disguised-as-news posts because they’re usually for something innovative, or they announce a useful discount or sale.

But a charging pad that is pricier than 99% of other fast charge pads that have been available for over a year is hardly new or innovative. Satechi is super late to the game here. And USB C is not innovative for a charger. It’s iterative.

This, more than most other posts, is not very well disguised.
