MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Apple Watch and iPhone Charging Station From Satechi

by

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Satechi to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a USB-C Dual Charging Station that's designed to charge the iPhone and the Apple Watch at the same time.

Available in Silver or Space Gray to match Apple's devices, Satechi's Dual Charging Station provides a total of 15W of power to charge an iPhone and an Apple Watch.


The Charging Station, priced at $64.99 normally but on sale for $38.99, features a slim, attractive design with a pedestal for each device, holding both the iPhone and the Apple Watch upright for easy viewing.

You'll need to supply your own cables for the iPhone and Apple Watch, but the Charging Station includes built-in cable management features to wind up excess cable. It comes with a USB power adapter and a USB-C to USB-A cable.


Satechi has designed the charger with smart charging technology that will provide the proper amount of power to each of the two devices that are being charged. It works with all modern Apple devices that have Lightning connectors, along with the Series 1, 2, and 3 Apple Watch models.


We have five of the Dual Charging Stations to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win our giveaway, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address.

Embarrassing chinese plastic garbage. Something like that was chic in 1978.

Why should I? You don't have to reinvent the wheel. Apple has already elegantly solved the power supply.
I always don't like the waste of human resources, I hope you can understand that. I have nothing against companies that also want a piece of the pie, but this here is already so obviously stupidly solved, therefore I do not have to take it in the hand at all...

Sounds like you're saying Apple "solved" the charging solution by just making charging cables and the watch charging puck? Some of us actually DO like having a charging dock/station. I've got a nice one, from China, that charges my watch, phone, and AirPods in a metal frame with a small footprint that is the same space gray as the rest of my devices. It looks great on my desk and unclutters all the cables.

Now when you say this Satechi dock is "ugly," I can't disagree with you there...

Do you have a link to the one you are using?

Hey there, here’s one similar to mine:
https://www.amazon.com/YoFeW-Charging-Aluminum-Compatible-AirPods/dp/B071R1SQRC
I bought mine months ago off eBay for I think $12. Not the same company but appears exactly the same. It did come with one bad charging cable but I switched it with one I already had. Looks and works great.

If you had followed the link provided in the article ('https://satechi.net/products/satechi-dual-charging-station') and scrolled down to the Q&A, you would have gotten your answer:

"Yes, this is compatible with the Apple Watch Series 4."

His question was reasonable. One would expect a reputable company to update their specifications in a timely fashion.
