What's unique about the charging mat is that it can top off three Apple devices at once - an iPhone, Apple Watch and the AirPods - as it has 29W output, and that's what might have made production levels challenging. The news that AirPower will be released in the next two weeks comes courtesy of the Taiwanese supplier industry, or, more precisely, the makers of "glass passivated package (GPP) bridge rectifiers," whatever that is.
Those companies are apparently experiencing a boom in orders, due to the AirPower's immediate launch, and the source mentions that producing the goods for Apple is pretty challenging, as usual. While the technology involved is simple, the demands are that those parts are wrapped in very slim packages, so we can't wait to test the performance of Apple's new AirPower super charger. Pricing? No word on that just yet, but it won't be cheap.
