Samsung's cool new Wireless Charger Duo will charge a Galaxy phone and a watch at the same time

Samsung's cool new Wireless Charger Duo will charge a Galaxy phone and a watch at the same time
Samsung has just officially taken the wraps off its new Wireless Charger Duo, a cool 2-in-1 wireless charger that allows you to top up your phone and smartwatch at the same time. What's cooler is that this is a universal Qi standard charger, so if you don't have a smartwatch, you can also use it to charge two phones at the same time. And no, they don't need to be Samsung Galaxy phones as long as they have support for wireless charging, all phones should work.

The price of this luxury, however, is quite high: the charger retails for $120 and is currently only available in black.

This buys you two wireless fast charging lanes (up to 7.5 watts each) for your device: the first, a stand, similar to the standard, one-piece Samsung wireless charger, while the second device has to lay flat in order to charge. The Wireless Charger Duo is made of plastic and it itself takes power via a USB-C port. The charger comes with built-in fans and vents, so it stays properly chill.

One more thing: yes, this will also work with the latest iPhones, the X, the 8 Plus and the 8, in case you were wondering. After all, it's been a year since Apple unveiled its own three-piece wireless charger and it's still not managed to release it, so you might just get this one.

Umm, looks like the Apple wirecharger in black, except Apple don't actually have one.

The AirPower is way cooler and it can charge the phone, airpods and Apple Watch. If only Apple made them..

Look, any accessory maker could have made this. They just globbed two separate pieces together. Ooh! I’m done with anyone that wants to compare this to the AirPower. It isn’t even in the same ballpark. Good try though to anyone who tries to compare the two and say Samsung beat Apple to it.

Yeah, that AirPower just stretched all the old traditional Samsung wireless chargers, they couldn't even find the courage to glob. No comparison at all. lol

The stupidity in your comment is almost laughable

This is not like the announced charging pad from Apple. This is two separate chargers held together by plastic. Apple doesn’t Require you to put watch in one place and phone in the other, I believe you can place them anywhere, including ear buds.
