Avoid cables wholly with Satechi’s new AirPods dock

At their best, Satechi’s products lay somewhere between a stupid and a high (practicality is nice, too, if we can manage). In annoy of a profoundly uninspiring name, a USB-C Wireless Charging Dock for Apple AirPods fit a check flattering nicely. There’s zero about a product that privately fits a company’s opportunistic representation of “easy and accessible charging while operative from home,” yet for a name cross-section of Apple enthusiasts, a bizarre small wharf expected hits a ideal honeyed spot.

The appendage follows in a footsteps of a likewise designed Apple Watch charging dock, radically vouchsafing we block a span of AirPods directly into a USB-C pier — be it a MacBook, iPad Pro or what have you. It’s a fun resolution if you’re aesthetically skeeved out by wires, or are only constantly let down by Lightning cables, as many of us are.

The wharf serves as a wireless horse and cradle, substantially best used when your laptop is sitting on a table rather than your tangible lap. The product’s breadth also looks as yet it will monopolize both ports on one side of your MacBook.

It’s concordant with both customary and Pro AirPods (assuming you’ve got a wireless charging case) and sports a relating small charging light to prove that it’s working. The wharf is accessible as a pre-order now. It’s set to start shipping in May, labelled during $30 (or $25 during a limited-time pre-order discount).
