Logitech Powered 3-in-1 Dock review: Wireless charging for your Apple gear

Logitech Powered 3-in-1 Dock assessment: Wi-fi charging for your Apple gear

I just took a appear at Logitech’s Driven Pad and identified it to be a effectively-built, respectable wireless charging pad. For the very last month or so, I’ve been applying the $130 Logitech Driven 3-in-1 Dock, the company’s multi-function wi-fi charging station designed, principally, with Apple iphone house owners in intellect.

Be aware: This review is section of our roundup of wi-fi charging pads. Go there for particulars on competing items and our tests methods for each Android telephones and iPhones.

The Dock has a few unique wireless charging spots. There is a stand, mainly built for your phone a pad the place you can wirelessly demand your wireless earbuds, yet another cellular phone, or something else Qi-enabled and a dedicated Apple Enjoy charger off to the aspect.

The stand and the pad each individual are able of 10W wi-fi charging, when the Apple Check out connector is 5W. That’s 25W of overall possible electricity, and Logitech doesn’t cut down or limit its output if you are employing all 3 stations at the exact same time.

Incorporated in the box is a wall adapter with a barrel connector that plugs into the rear of the Dock to provide it power. The exterior of the Dock is included in a tender rubber material. I received the black model, but there is also a white variation that appears to be really modern.

It is a uncomplicated but attractive charging station that seems to be wonderful on a desk, and I’d have no troubles putting it on my nightstand both.

As for performance, the Run 3-in-1 Dock carried out improved in tests with an Apple iphone than it did with our test Samsung machine. I analyzed the stand part of the dock given that that’s the main spot for charging your phone. In 3 distinct exams of charging an empty Apple iphone 11 more than the class of an hour, the iPhone’s battery was billed to an common of 39 p.c. That’s truly improved than Logitech’s Run Pad by 5 percent, and approximately center of the pack when in contrast to the relaxation of the pads I’ve examined.

Due to the fact the Dock utilizes the Qi regular for the pad and stand part, you can charge any compatible phone or accessory on it. So I ran by our normal check with the Galaxy S8. On regular, it took 3 several hours and 21 minutes, or 201 minutes, overall to demand the S8 from empty to whole.

The common charging time for that exam? 196 minutes. So not exceptional, but not awful possibly.
