Hands-on with the Anker PowerWave 2-in-1 MagSafe stand

Entering as one of the more recent additions to Anker’s stable of MagSafe chargers, its newer PowerWave 2-in-1 Stand arrives with much of the same budget focus as we’ve come to expect. Sporting a main 7.5W magnetic charging mount that rests atop a metal arm, there’s also a secondary 5W pad below.

So not only can it top off your handset, but also charge up a pair of AirPods or other earbuds in a streamlined form factor. Other notable features like a USB-C input and the mount’s adjustable angle also make this stand out among MagSafe offerings. Designed specifically for using with an iPhone 12 or the new iPhone 13, we’re taking a hands-on look to see if the $38 accessory is worth picking up to pair with Apple’s latest.

Here’s a closer look at the spec sheet:

  • Power 2 devices at once: While the magnetic stand charges your iPhone 13, charge your AirPods with wireless charging case using the charging base below.
  • Adjustable phone charging surface: Charge vertically or horizontally, and adjust the viewing angle up to 40 degrees to watch videos or keep tabs on incoming messages.
  • Snap and Secure: Charge your iPhone 13 more efficiently with a strong magnetic connection and easy alignment for an uninterrupted charging experience.
