Wireless charging is undoubtedly the future of mobile devices, offering a convenient, cord-free existence. While wireless charging speeds have improved steadily, one trend complicates matters: finding space to charge a growing stable of wireless accessories. Wireless earphones and smartwatches are now commonplace, requiring their own space and place to top off their internal batteries. Native Union’s Drop XL Wireless Charger Watch Edition is an elegant and convenient solution for this modern day necessity.
Native Union’s Drop XL Wireless Charger Watch Edition is unabashedly designed to complement Apple’s current line of products, offering an expanded textile covered oval surface outlined to accommodate not only the latest iPhone models, but also simultaneously charge the Apple AirPods charging case and the Apple Watch with detachable, vertically-oriented charging puck.
The $149 Drop XL Watch Edition thankfully ships with an included AC Power Adapter and a USB-A to USB-C 6.5 foot/2-meter cable, which makes it easy to set up near an outlet in spaces like the living room or kitchen, or as a workspace accessory, connected to a computer’s USB port.
The Drop XL Wireless Charger Watch Edition can simultaneously charge three devices at once for a total output up to 10W for Qi enabled devices, 7.5W for iPhone, 5W for AirPods Wireless Charging Case and AirPods Pro. Thermal protection sensor and foreign object detection is also built in for safety purposes.
Native Union has always made the extra effort to accessorize their products with small, but premium details like the color-matched braided charging cable and integrated genuine leather strap included with the Drop XL Watch Edition. The inclusion makes aesthete neat freaks like ourselves happier to leave a tech accessory out in the open without the typical misgivings of other decor-intrusive devices.
