Ever have that feeling of irritation when you have to go charge your phone and go grab a cord only to find yourself having to untangle it sometimes? Well, I’ve had that happen to me a few times and it made me want a more simple and quick way to charge my phone. I have also been interested in wireless charging for a while now but hadn’t really used or owned one before. Up till now, when I decided to get the Satechi 2-in-1 Magnetic Wireless Charging Stand.
I’ve had and been using the Satechi charging stand for about a month now. The stand has a very sleek and minimal design, with very premium looking and feeling material. The stand has a bit of heft to it making it quite a solid product. The design of the stand itself is quite aesthetic as well, with white, chrome, and brushed aluminum pieces, making it fit well with the aesthetics of Apple products such as iPhones and AirPods. The stand is quite well constructed with a solid base and arm. It features an LED indicator on the front of the base to indicate whether the charging stand is on or when the device placed on the stand is charging.
The Satechi charging stand is very simple and straightforward to use, just like any other charger. What is included in the box is the charging stand itself along with a black USB-C to USB-C cable to stay incognito from the stand itself. One final piece missing before the whole thing works is a 18-20W USB-C power adapter. The power adapter is not included in the product box and is to be purchased separately. The charging stand has a circular magnetic charger for an iPhone 12 or later and the circular charger itself can be tilted up and down to your liking. In my personal use, I found the magnet to be more on the weaker side as it did not seem to grip on to the iPhone too well, especially with a non-Magsafe case on. The magnetic charger definitely holds the phone but does not do too well if you accidentally hit or tap the phone. My first couple of uses ended up with my phone constantly sliding off the charger. However, after adjusting the angle of the magnetic charger to be tilted higher, the phone manages to stay on a tad better with the phone case kept on. The charging stand also wirelessly charges AirPods at its base. Satechi advertises it to charge AirPods Pro, but I’ve tried wirelessly charging the Jabra Elite Active 75t and it worked without any issues.
Overall, the Satechi wireless charging stand is a great compact and aesthetic wireless charger for Apple iPhones with Magsafe. After using it for about a month now, I think the only downfall of the charging stand is the magnet strength. Without a case, the phone stays on quite well for the most part. However, with a non-Magsafe phone case, it is quite tricky to use without care of placement. I think the charging stand is slightly on the pricy side at about $60, but is still on the lower end of the price range. Therefore, I think the Satechi 2-in-1 Magnetic Wireless Charging Stand is worth a look at for consideration if you’re in the market for a wireless charger for an iPhone 12 or later.
