Ever thought that it will be great if a power bank could wirelessly charge both the Apple Watch and MagSafe-equipped iPhone? Well, if you do, your dream just came through.
Everyone, meet the world’s first hybrid wireless battery from the Japanese charging solution provider, Connection International One, or CIO (which has one of the coolest logos ever).
CIO world’s first hybrid wireless battery is much like the Apple official Magsafe power bank, but with the ability to charge Apple Watch and with a significantly more affordable price tag.
The CIO world’s first hybrid wireless battery has raised over US$160,000 on the Japanese crowdfunding website Makuake and it is now available internationally through a pre-sale campaign on Indiegogo.
Unlike regular wireless charging power banks, the world’s first hybrid wireless battery has two charging coils built into a single power bank. It can automatically identify the device placed on it and deliver the proper current.
In case you are wondering, the world’s first hybrid wireless battery uses the same surface to charge both Apple Watch and iPhone 12/13. So, it is not quite a dual charging battery.
The battery further features a built-in stand for propping up the phone when charging so you can continue watching videos and whatnot as it charges. The battery is also outfitted with a USB-C port that supports PD 20W fast charging your iPhone if so desire.
Finally, CIO world’s first hybrid wireless battery is super compact. Compact enough that when it is on the back of the iPhone 13 mini, it will not get in the way of the camera.
If you dig the idea, you can pre-order CIO world’s first hybrid wireless battery from Indiegogo now. Prices start at US$41, with delivery slated to happen in December 2021.
