MagSafe Duo Charger

Matthew Panzarino:

It’s a folding dual travel charger that will hold both an iPhone using MagSafe and an Apple Watch using its more traditional magnetic charger.


For context, you have to understand that this thing is $129 but feels like it should be $70. When you realize that it is a charger that doesn’t come with a power adapter, I would not be shocked if you mentally downgraded it to $40.


I’m sorry to say that I find the whole thing a bit underwhelming after the hype of AirPower and its eventual demise.

Nick Heer:

I still think — perhaps irrationally — that it is totally fine to remove the power adapter and headphones from iPhone boxes this year […] But I do not understand why this product, regardless of price, does not include an adapter. Someone buying this is almost certainly going to either throw it in their maybe I can travel again bag or set it up on their night stand. Either way, they are going to need a thing to get electricity out of the wall and into the wire. And, sure, you can use any old Lightning cable and adapter you have kicking around, but it’s going to charge slowly, which rather spoils the point.
