CES 2024: Satechi Debuts New Qi2 Wireless Charging Stands

Satechi today introduced two new Qi2 charging options, including the 3-in-1 Foldable Qi2 Wireless Charging Stand and 2-in-1 Foldable Qi2 Wireless Charging Stand. With next-generation Qi2 charging technology, Satechi's chargers are able to charge MagSafe iPhones at up to 15W, the same as official ‌MagSafe‌ chargers from Apple.

The 3-in-1 stand from Satechi also includes a 5W Apple Watch charger and a 5W wireless charger that's designed for the AirPods, while the 2-in-1 stand has a spot for charging the AirPods. Both chargers feature a vegan leather base, an aluminum housing, and a soft silicone charging puck, and they are able to fold down for travel when not in use.

Satechi's 3-in-1 stand is able to provide fast-charging capabilities for the Apple Watch Series 7 and later, plus it comes with a 45W USB-C power adapter. Qi2 uses the same magnetic power profile as ‌MagSafe‌, so these stands work like ‌MagSafe‌ stands without the 7.5W limitation of the prior Qi standard.

The 3-in-1 Foldable Qi2 Wireless Charging Stand will be priced at $130, while the 2-in-1 Foldable Qi2 Wireless Charging Stand will be priced at $80. Both chargers are set to launch in the second quarter of 2024.

Satechi today also announced the launch of the SM1 Slim Mechanical Backlit Bluetooth Keyboard, the company's first mechanical keyboard option. It is compatible with the Mac, and it is priced at $100.

Qi2 is a new open standard. It's crazy that these 3-in-1 stands are still $130
Considering how not complicated these devices are it's absolutely insane they cost this much.

$20 (45W charger) + $20 (15W Qi2 charger) + $10 (5W Qi charger) + $30 (5W Apple Watch fast charger) = $80. You are paying $50 premium for an integrated solution with a nicer design. It's ultimately up to you to decide whether that premium is worth it, but for a device that I rely on often, I can justify paying that sum for a nicer design and from a brand that I trust. It's also worth noting that Satechi frequently offers 15-25% discount coupon.

* Night Vision orientation compatible
* 5W Apple Watch fast charging
* 5W AirPods charging
* $80-130, but includes power adapter and Satechi products are often discounted
* Clean design with subtle charging indicator light

If you buy/can afford a $1000+ iPhone, an Apple Watch for $400+ and possibly some AirPods Pro then why not charge $130 for this stand?
It's the exact same reason why Apple charges like what, $699 for 4 wheels for your Mac Pro.
It's all relative...

I really liked the Satechi bluetooth keyboard that I had previously, so I'd be willing to give this mechanical one a try. I generally think they make pretty good products; the ones that I've used from them have not given me any trouble. I wish I would have gotten one of their universal vertical laptop stands before they stopped making them.
