Anker’s AirPower alternative is now just $50

After AirPower bit the dust, manufacturers raced to put out their own alternatives to meet market demand. One of those was from Anker, which introduced the PowerWave+ wireless charging pad shortly after Apple made its new official. It’s currently marked down to $50, which is the best price we’ve tracked all-time. The built-in Qi pad offers 7.5W of power, but you will need to provide an Apple Watch charging puck. Ships with a wall power block and microUSB cable. Early reviews are positive. Learn more in our launch coverage.
