An ingenious product, which answers all the questions of owners of iPhone and AirPods to which Apple has not yet answered: this is what Power1 is and how it works
One of the dreams of those who own an Apple iPhone and, at the same time, the wireless headphones AirPods of the bitten apple, is to have a single case to carry around and protect both, with a single product. To all these people is addressed Power1, a device of the American company AXS Technologies just arrived on the U.S. market.
Power1 is a simple product in design and daily use, but complex in engineering because, in fact, are more products in one: it is a case, but for two devices at the same time, and it is also a powerbank, able to charge both, but also only one at a time. All without forgetting MagSafe magnetic charging, but adding a USB-C port, which iPhones notoriously don't have. Basically Power1 was made to fill all the gaps of modern iPhones and to respond to all user requests, so far unanswered by Apple.
Power1: how it is made
Power1 is composed of two modules: the first is a silicone cover that wraps and protects the iPhone and has a large hole in the center to allow charging MagSafe (which would not work otherwise, given the material used).
On this cover you clip the actual device, which is a very thin 3,000 mAh powerbank, with a countersink at the top so as not to cover the camera module. To the right of the countersink, however, there is a slot for AirPods that holds them securely and, if we want, charges them.
The charging modes, however, are two: with Power Mode 1 you charge only AirPods, with Power Mode 2 also the iPhone. Ma il Power1 si ricarica via USB-C, quindi usandolo è di fatto possibile ricaricare un iPhone con un caricatore USB.
Power1: quanto costa
Power1 è già disponibile sul sito del produttore per i preordini sul mercato americano, ad un prezzo di 99 dollari. Non sono pochi, ma nulla costa poco nel mondo Apple e questo prodotto offre qualcosa che gli altri non offrono. Nemmeno Apple.
Di seguito gli iPhone e le AirPods per i quali è disponibile Power1 (il prezzo è sempre lo stesso).
- iPhone XR
- iPhone 11
- iPhone 12 Pro
- iPhone 12 Pro Max
- iPhone 13 Pro
- iPhone 13 Pro
- AirPods 1
- AirPods 2
Come è facile notare, mancano all’appello iPhone 13 Pro Max, che onestamente non ha grossi problemi di ricarica vista la grande autonomia offerta, e le AirPods 3, appena presentate da Apple.
