Twelve South Launches New 'HiRise 3' Charger for iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods

Twelve South today announced the "HiRise 3" stand charger for iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods, priced at $99.99. The stand supports MagSafe-compatible charging and holds an iPhone 12 or later vertically, and also includes a charging puck for Apple Watch and a Qi charging mat on the base that supports AirPods or any Qi-compatible smartphone.

The HiRise 3 is available in black and white color options and requires a 20W USB-C power adapter, which is not included. Twelve South noted that the HiRise 3 has a minimal footprint and was designed to declutter bedside tables and desks, while propping up your iPhone to easily read incoming notifications.

In regards to charging, the HiRise 3 does not include an official MFi MagSafe charging puck or 15W wireless charging. Instead, it has a magnetic Qi stand with 7.5W wireless charging, as well as 3W for the Apple Watch charger and 5W for the charger on the base.

The HiRise 3 can be purchased today from Twelve South's website and from Amazon for $99.99.

Costco ('') sells the Belkin Boost Charge Pro 3-in-1 for the same price; other places sell it for $150, but it's $100 for Costco members currently. Costco only sells it in white.

Advantages of the Belkin over this Twelve South product:

* 15W MagSafe charging
* Power supply included
* Apple Watch charger is on the side of the iPhone charger, instead of behind it.
* Indentation for AirPods case makes it easier to align properly.
* Round MagSafe makes it easy to mount phone in portrait or landscape mode; maybe the Twelve South does this, too, but it seems optimized for portrait.

I suppose the Twelve South has these advantages:

* Uses USB C, so you don't get yet another power brick if you already have a USB C charger.
* Flat wireless charging base accommodates more devices, not just AirPods.
* More compact design by putting the watch behind the phone.
* Larger magnetic surface may hold phone better if your case has weak/no MagSafe magnets. I have had zero problems with my Mous Limitless 4.0 case on an iPhone 12 Pro, however.

I got two Belkin chargers last week for my wife and me. So far, we like them a lot. $150 would be a lot to pay, but $100 at Costco is pretty reasonable if you add up the cost of three separate chargers for iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods.

Looks very nice I must say. but disappointing that they cheated out and didn’t go with official magsafe. I’d have paid 10 bucks more for that.

Belkin's 3-in-1 charging stand is on sale now at Costco for $99. And it's official MagSafe.

Half the speed of Magsafe.

Dead on arrival.

Yet another Twelve South product that looks fancy - yet fails thanks to cheap components.

Should have swapped the airpod and watch charging spots.
