From 9to5Toys:

Griffin has today launched its newest iPhone accessory, the PowerBlock Wireless Charging Pad. This new offering will be priced at $60, but Griffin is offering 15% off on the new charger through April 2, bringing it down to $51.

AirPods

PowerBlock Wireless Charging Pad provides up to 15W of wireless power, although iPhone 8/8 Plus and iPhone X will only make use of 7.5 Watts (for now at least).

While some companies are offering wireless chargers without the power adapter, Griffin includes the cable and power adapter in the box.

Specs

  • Materials: TPU, polycarbonate, synthetic wool
  • Power from Wall Outlet: 100 – 240 V AC
  • Power to Device: 15 watts
  • In the Box: PowerBlock 15W Wireless Charging Pad
  • Warranty: Guaranteed for Life
  • Qi Certified wireless output up to 15 watts
  • Supports Samsung fast wireless charging
  • Subtle LED underglow activates when phone is charging wirelessly
  • Soft material grips and protects device while charging
  • Charges through most cases (≤3mm)
  • Works with Qi-compatible devices
  • Power cable with US/EU/UK/AUS adapters provided
  • Non-slip feet

The top of the charger sports a soft wool for a non-scratch surface, hopefully it will also help to prevent iPhones from sliding/vibrating off the pad while in use. Another nice feature of this charger is the lifetime guarantee. It also includes international adapters for the power cable.

PowerBlock Wireless Charging Pad comes in one color, black/gray and is available now from Griffin’s website. The 15% off deal runs now through April 2nd, bringing the price down to $51, from the standard $60 price tag. Use the code WIRELESS at checkout.

The new charger has popped up on Amazon as well, but without the 15% off deal.
