Legrand Radiant Wireless Charger offers in-wall power for Apple's iPhone 8 & iPhone X

The newest twist on charging the iPhone 8 and X is the Legrand Radiant Wireless Charger, a wall outlet with a built-in Qi-compatible charging pad.

The product can be installed in place of any existing single-gang outlet, and keeps iPhones and other devices on the charging pad using a cradle. For non-Apple electronics an LED light glows red while charging is underway and turns green once a device is ready.

Also present for wired charging are two standard AC sockets and a USB-A port.

The Wireless Charger is currently only available in white, but black, ivory, and almond variations will eventually ship to match different color schemes. Legrand is selling the accessory for $79.33, but Lowe's currently has the Radiant Wireless Charger on sale for $68.98.

It should theoretically support this year's 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.5-inch iPhones, all of which should be Qi-ready. It may also fit some iPads, but it's not yet clear if this year's Pro models — which could be announced at WWDC 2018 — will even allow wireless charging.
