Review: Mophie's suede 3-in-1 Qi wireless charging stand powers all your Apple gear

Mophie elevates its wireless charger with a new suede top material for a more premium experience on its 3-in-1 Qi charging dock for iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods.

It was merely a few weeks ago when we reviewed the new Mophie wireless charger lineup which encompasses a single charger, a dual charger, and a three-in-one dock.

In the review, we took Mophie to task for the glossy, somewhat cheap feeling exterior that had diverged from the fantastic quality we'd seen from the accessory maker in the past.

Not to say the products were bad in any way — they are better than a lot of other chargers out there. But compared to Mophie's own, they didn't quite live up.

So it's no surprise when we found out Mophie was launching a more premium version of its three-in-one wireless charging dock.

The basics are the same — it has a Qi pad on the right for a phone, a divot to the left for a pair of AirPods, and an MFi certified Apple Watch charging puck stationed behind the AirPods perch.

That all remains identical with what we reviewed before, however the top surface has changed. Instead of the glossy plastic that showed every spec of dust, it is covered in a soft suede.

This wholeheartedly improves the look and feel of the charger, immediately elevating it to a more premium experience.

As far as other important details, the Qi charger will work with cases up to 3mm thick (par for the course), and can charge at up to 7.5W — the most Apple allows for an iPhone.

It is disappointing you can't use another phone or something else on the left side of the charger, limited to only charging AirPods, but it is nice to see something designed specifically for them. Plus, with the Apple Watch charger in the way there isn't much room for anything else.
