We tested the Satechi Trio wireless charger, a wireless charging station for your iPhone, AirPods and Apple Watch that includes everything you need, with great design and first-class materials.
Satechi offers us a unique charging base to cover all your needs: iPhone, AirPods and Apple Watch. And it does this by including everything you need in the box, without the fine print. Do you need a powerful charger to be able to charge all three devices at full power? Well one of the 24W Power Delivery is included and that’s it. Do you need a USB-C to USB-C cable to power the base? Well we include it too. There are no surprises here, in the box of this Trio Wireless base there is absolutely everything you need to get it working from the first moment, you will even find adapters for sockets from different countries.
But it is also that the base has good design and is made of top quality materials. Aluminum body, to give it solidity, and the matte black plastic top to complete a design that will fit perfectly where you want to place the base: your desk, a bedside table or wherever you need to place this base that will be solved with just one plug in your daily recharges of your favorite devices. The included 24W charger is distributed to charge your iPhone with a power of 7.5W (the maximum if MagSafe technology is not used), AirPods with 5W and the Apple Watch with 2.5W. You will have no problem recharging all three simultaneously. By the way, this is an ideal charger to take you on a trip thanks to the adapters included in the box.
As you can see in the video, the base has silicone protectors to take care of the glass surface of your iPhone and the metal frame of your Apple Watch, also preventing them from slipping on the plastic surface. Four silicone feet give the base a good grip on the surface you place it on, in addition to preventing damage. Three LEDs at the top light up to indicate which device is charging
The charging disc of the Apple Watch rotates, so it will be useful to us with any bracelet that we use since we can place our Smartwatch in vertical and horizontal position, according to our needs or preferences. In the central space we find the place reserved for recharging the AirPods. SAirPods with wireless charging case and AirPods Pro, with or without a protective case are compatible
Regarding compatibility with smartphones, anyone with wireless charging can charge in this base, with or without a cover. Be careful with cases containing metal parts, which are never recommended with wireless charging due to the phone overheating, and the base may also detect it as a “foreign object” and stop charging devices.
The Satechi Trio Wireless Dock elegantly and efficiently solves the problem of charging three devices that we use every day such as Apple Watch, AirPods and iPhone, and it also does this by including everything you need, including a 24W USB-C power charger, which is unfortunately exceptional lately. Available on Amazon for 99 $ (link) is without a doubt one of the best options that can be found on the market in terms of value for money.
