    • Denis Elis yeah cheaper is great if this was a $20 product but it’s a premium price so I expect premium charging. Good try though.

    • No apple product has barrel plugs. All electronics coming out from now on will be usb c including the new iPhones, laptops and tablet. Also every other electronic device that’s non apple will be usb c also, so you will only cable. However with this thing that supposedly has attention to detail, according to the reviewer uses a barrel plug. So since you are defending this so hard go ahead and buy it and you can forever have to keep some random barrel plug. I can promise you I won’t be buying it.

      All electronics??? Even $150 TVs at Walmart?? How about budget Dell laptops under $300?? You sound so sure of your self, I’ll bet you know who will win the 2020 election and the next Super Bowl!

    • Denis Elis actually I do. Brittany Spears 2020, and the Milwaukee brewers will win the super bowl. A dumb answer like yours deserves a dumb response. If your not smart enough to understand what I meant then good luck to you in life. Take care.

  1. Bought this for my wife at Christmas and she absolutely loves it. Apple Watch charges and displays nightstand mode at night while at the same time charging her AirPods and iPhone XR as the review described and it looks good and clean! Waiting to get another one for myself!

  2. I love this. But I just want a high quality, vertical wireless charging stand for my Apple Watch and iPhone. That does not cost $159

    • That, is an excellent idea. I do know my way around a 3D Printer, but I have yet to dabble with custom electronics. I think I will give this a try though!

  3. You didn’t mention if that bar under the watch charger is adjustable for people with protective cases on their Apple Watch’s.

  4. Looks so clean and nice. Price may be okay but as I do not have und do not plan to use AirPods and as this is not available in Germany, I won’t (and can’t) buy it

  5. This seems perfect for someone who has a lot of devices that need charging. I personally don’t have anything that supports wireless charging. I only have an iPhone 6s.

  6. The rubber bar under the Watch charger covers the loudspeakers of AW 4 which reduces the alarm clock sound. Some 2 cutouts in the bar should solve this little problem. Beside of this, the device is working fine. I have it in daily use for some month now.
