For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Satechi to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Trio Wireless Charging Pad that can wirelessly charge the iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods all at once.

Priced at $119, the Trio Wireless Charging Pad has a simple rectangular design that looks clean and organized on a desk, counter, or table top. There's a slight wedge look to the charger, along with three LEDs that serve as charging indicators for your devices.


There's an upright pop-out Apple Watch charging puck that can charge the Apple Watch in Nightstand Mode, an indentation designed to fit the AirPods or AirPods Pro and a spot for the ‌iPhone‌ denoted by a raised rubber circle that helps keep it secured in place while charging.

The cutouts for the AirPods and the rubber circle for the ‌iPhone‌ are useful ways to make sure your devices get put in the exact right spot for charging, so there's no fussing with trying to find the proper position.

Because the Apple Watch charging puck folds down, the Trio is ideal for travel because it can be tucked into a bag or a purse along with your other Apple accessories.

The Trio Wireless Charging Pad can charge an ‌iPhone‌ at 7.5W, the maximum charging speed that Apple's iPhones support for wireless charging. The Apple Watch charges at 2.5W, while the AirPods with Wireless Charging Case or ‌AirPods Pro‌ charges at 5W.

Satechi is a trusted name when it comes to ‌iPhone‌ accessories, and the Trio features foreign object detection and over temperature protection to keep you and your devices safe. It will automatically shut off power if there's an unknown object on the charger or if there are heat issues.

Satechi ships the Trio Wireless Charging Pad with a USB-C 24W power adapter that comes with U.S., UK, and EU plug options, another reason why it's ideal for use both at home and when you're traveling.

That actually looks pretty decent. It meets my needs, including travel. I particularly like the fact it is USB C, so I can use my Mac charger with it (presumably).

Looks nice. Still a bit pricey for my liking. If I were to win one that would be cool, but until wireless charging gets faster I'm not is a rush to shell out on a wireless charging station personally. I don't find using a wire overly inconvenient especially at night.
Electrical engineer here: wireless charging won't get much faster, the physics of electromagnetic fields passing between two wire coils limit it massively, particularly without the iron core that you get in a transformer that massively improves the efficiency, and which is physically impossible with wireless charging. These inefficiencies transfer into heat, which limits the power levels that can safely be used. They will be able to tweak it here and there, but there are physical limitations of what is possible. Charging via wires will always remain king.

I'm using this charger for the last six months. I charge Apple Watch5, AirPods Pro and iPhone 11 all at the same time and they all have cases and works great.

Yup! I've just been to look at the reviews too. Why can't somebody (hello Apple...) make something like this that is top quality with no corners cut? I don't mind paying for quality. Sadly, it looks like this may be lacking.
