CROWDFUNDING NEWS – The CIO: Apple Watch & MagSafe Compatible Power Bank is a 5000mAh wireless charging power bank that has been designed especially for iPhones with MagSafe and for Apple Watches.

Why do I like it?

I like the CIO: Apple Watch & MagSafe Compatible Power Bank because it’s a dual-use charger (actually triple!). It not only can charge your iPhone, but it can also charge your Apple Watch and it can charge any other small Qi-charging capable device like Apple Airpods.

CIO sent me an early production version of this charger and I have been impressed with it. I like the way that it attaches to the back of my iPhone 13 Pro Max and the built-in kickstand that will let me use the phone in landscape orientation while it’s charging. I also like that the covering on this charger is soft, almost rubbery, which makes it grippy in hand.

The fact that this charger can also charge my Apple Watch means that it is a useful charger for travel. Instead of taking your dedicated Apple Watch charging cable when you travel, you can just take the CIO: Apple Watch & MagSafe Compatible Power Bank with you and use it to charge both devices.

Where can I find more info?
