MagSafe Duo Charger Showcased in New Hands-On Video

Apple last month introduced the MagSafe Duo Charger, which features a foldable design with a built-in MagSafe Charger and Apple Watch charging puck. A new video recently shared on Instagram goes hands-on with the accessory.


The video showcases the accessory being used to charge an iPhone 12 and Apple Watch. Similar to the Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock, the Apple Watch charging puck can be pushed up to allow the watch to be docked on its side, enabling Nightstand mode.

The MagSafe Duo has the ability to wirelessly charge a compatible iPhone, Apple Watch, AirPods or AirPods Pro case, and other Qi-certified devices. Priced at $129, the charger ships with a USB-C to Lightning cable, but the recommended 20W power adapter is sold separately for $19. An exact release date has still yet to be announced for the accessory.

$129 is definitely an overprice on something that takes two cheaper components and merges them in to one but let's be honest...I'm still going to buy one on day one.

I was super excited about the idea of this when it comes to traveling... until the price was dropped on us like a crappy Skrillex dub step song.

It just doesn’t look well designed. It doesn’t have the Apple typical design flair.
