For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Choetech to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Qi Wireless Charging Pad that's meant to be used with the AirPods Pro.

Available for under $20 with a special deal at the current time (use code T5501030 when checking out), Choetech's Charging Pad features a simple rectangular squircle shape with rounded edges and rubber pads designed to hold the ‌AirPods Pro‌ case securely in place while also providing guidance on where to place the ‌AirPods Pro‌. There's also a non-slip material on the bottom to keep the charger in position on a desk or nightstand.

Though clearly designed for the ‌AirPods Pro‌, the Wireless Charging Pad also works with the standard second-generation AirPods with Wireless Charging Case, iPhones that support wireless charging, and other Qi-based devices.

It can provide up to 15W of power, so it is able to charge the ‌AirPods Pro‌ at full wireless charging speed. For iPhones, it is capable of providing 7.5W of power, and for Android smartphones, it provides 10 to 15W depending on the device.

There's a green LED at the front that lets you know when a product is charging, which is useful when the room's dark at night. The LED flashes for a couple of seconds, stays lit for 60 seconds, and then turns off completely so it's not disturbing when you're trying to sleep.

The Wireless Charging Pad is shipped with a QC 3.0 power adapter and it connects through the charger's USB-C port and the included USB-A to USB-C cable.

According to Choetech, the Charging Pad includes built-in heat dissipating metal and an integrated Smart Excellence chip to prevent overheating, overcharging, and short circuiting to ensure the charger is safe to use.

Guys, it charges any Qi-compatible device, it just has a pad that makes it fit the AirPods Pro's case perfectly.

FTA: "Though clearly designed for the AirPods Pro, the Wireless Charging Pad also works with the standard second-generation AirPods with Wireless Charging Case, iPhones that support wireless charging, and other Qi-based devices."

Are people using wireless charging that much? I charge my stuff at night and honestly just a cable is more convenient than having extra stuff and cables on your desk. Plus the fact that technology isn’t there yet and it charges slowly. Seems like a cool idea that in practice doesn’t really give you benefits but just more stuff to buy and to keep on your desk
I only wirelessly charge using the Nomad Base Station Pro at night since I don't need a faster charger and it's hard for me to find my cable in the dark. During the day? Apple 5W charger since it sits at a desk for calls. On the go, 20W charger since I don't always have a chance to charge.

So now we can get a wireless charging pad for each device? The phone, the earbuds, the watch, the pad, the laptop... This is going to be really convenient! :) Happy to not have any wirelessly-charged items.
