Belkin 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad with 15W MagSafe ($219)
Similar to the charging stand, this charging pad charges three Apple devices at once: phone, earbuds, and watch, but it lacks the MagSafe arms that extend upwards. Instead, it’s a flat bed for you to rest your devices on. Unlike last year’s dual charging pads that lack MagSafe, users struggled to find the sweet spot for their phones to start charging on the pad.
Now the phone simply plugs into the charging cradle on the left, so kids can’t accidentally knock the phone aside.
