Satechi preps Dual Charging Station for iPhone & Apple Watch

in iPhone
Accessory maker Satechi on Tuesday previewed the Dual Charging Station, a USB-C-powered dock designed to charge an iPhone and Apple Watch simultaneously.

To minimize clutter, the Lightning charging cables for each device are wrapped around spindles that sit hidden within the dock. While half of the station is meant exclusively for the Apple Watch, the iPhone portion can also be used to charge accessories like an Apple Pencil or the Apple TV's Siri Remote.

The dock supplies 15 watts of power in total, and comes in silver or space gray versions, both made of brushed aluminum.

Satechi plans to release the Dual Charging Station this spring for $64.99.

    Might be one of the first images where I’ve seen an iPhone X being charged with the Lightning port rather than inferring wireless charging. Still, it’s a nice stand for those with both an iPhone and an Apple Watch. I’d be interested in seeing this in person...

    How can it charge the Apple Pencil? Doesn't it have a male Lighting connector?

    The Pencil actually ships with an adapter in the box, so you usually just charge it like any other device on a lightning cable. This despite cries from the haters complaining about having to stick it into the ipad. That’s how you can tell who is an ignorant hater and doesn’t actually have or use the products they’re complaining about. 😎

    It looks nice. If I had an X, I'd prefer an easel-type stand that does wireless charging. Less efficient but more convenient. It's a great stand for any other phone and watch, though.
