Apple Now Selling OtterBox Folding Stand for MagSafe Charger

Apple has begun selling a new third-party accessory for its MagSafe ecosystem, a folding stand from OtterBox priced at $39.95. The hinged stand includes a recessed area to house a user-provided ‌MagSafe‌ Charger and a slot for routing the cable through the stand and out the back.

The folding design is convenient for travel and lets you set your desired angle for nightstand viewing, video calls, and more in either portrait or landscape orientation. When folded completely back into a horizontal position, it can serve as a traditional Qi charger for non-MagSafe devices such as AirPods or other smartphones.

At $39.95 for the stand and an additional $39.00 for Apple's ‌MagSafe‌ Charger, it's not an inexpensive charging solution, but the removable charger setup does offer flexibility to only use the stand when needed.

You know what's convenient for travel? A lightning cable

You can just say "it's an expensive charging solution" :-)

This story should carry a trigger warning. Why? I'm getting flashbacks to all the times I've splurged on some accessory, especially a third party accessory, only to have Apple change the physical design or the connector a few months later.

Why is this a thing? If you have to buy a MagSafe charger anyways, why not just build it into the device and include it in the price? It’s not like it was designed to make it easy to take the MagSafe puck in and out.
