Nearly five months have passed since one of the biggest news outlets on Friday: On March 29, Apple abruptly canceled an AirPower wireless charging pad that could supposedly charge your iPhones, Apple Watch and AirPods, no matter where you put them. But wireless charging company Zens is betting that it can do what Apple couldn't by introducing Zens Liberty.
Zens claims that Liberty uses a set of 16 overlapping wireless charging coils to allow you to charge your Qi-compliant devices from every spot on the mat – just as AirPower was supposed to, even though rumors were rife about AirPower has 21
We also do not know if Zens Liberty's multimobile design overcomes engineering challenges rumored to have sunk AirPower, including overheating and possibly emitting signals more powerful than US or EU permits . If Apple couldn't figure it out, I'm pretty skeptical.
However, if you're ready to roll the dice on such a new product, Zens says the Zens Liberty will be available in two flavors this November: $ 139.99 "Kvadrat", which has beautiful fabric on top of the aluminum pad and 179 , $ 99 limited edition glass that replaces the fabric with glass, allowing you to see the charging coil on the mat below.
For the AirPower alternative available now, we recommend the Hard Cider Labs SliceCharge Pro, which, although it has only six charging coils, can charge two devices on the mat, as well as the Apple Watch via an integrated charger clock device.
