While Apple has yet to announce an official launch date for its MagSafe Duo Charger, an authorized reseller in Switzerland is taking orders for the device with a ship date of Dec. 21.

Digitec Galaxus is now accepting online orders for the MagSafe Duo, a dual-charging device capable of simultaneously powering an iPhone 12 and Apple Watch.

According to the reseller's website, deliveries of the accessory are expected to ship between Dec. 21 and Dec. 29, though the dates could be temporary placeholders as the world awaits an official announcement from Apple.

Unveiled at this year's iPhone event in October, the MagSafe Duo Charger has been listed as "coming soon" on the online Apple Store for weeks. With 2020 quickly coming to an end, however, the promised launch is in the offing.

9to5Mac spotted the Galaxus listing earlier today.

Korea's National Radio Research Agency gave Apple the green light to start sales of the charging accessory in early November, a decision that was followed by a similar proclamation from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission. For electronics, regulatory approvals typically signal imminent release.

The MagSafe Duo Charger is designed to deliver 15W of power to iPhone 12 series devices. Apple's support documents reveal that the certain models, specifically the iPhone 12 mini, is restricted to a maximum of 11W or 14W depending on the adapter.
