AirZeus: All-At-Once Wireless Charging for iPhone, Watch and AirPods 2

AirZeus: All-At-Once Wireless Charging for iPhone, Watch and AirPods 2

Remember AirPower? That was Apple’s idea of a 3-in-1 wireless charger that one would be able to place an iPhone, an Apple Watch and a AirPods 2 charging case and have them all charge at once. Well, that product never made it to market, but AirZeus has figured out how to create a triple wireless charger that does what AirPower never accomplished. We have this charging pad — usually retailing at $149.99 — on sale this week for $44.99, and you can pick it up in the Apple World Today Deals Shop.
