This Laptop Dock Can Charge Your MacBook, iPhone Wirelessly

What sorcery is this?!

Biggest headache in our office?

The constant need to power our laptops (“Oh, sh*t, I’m at 3%. Can you plug this in over there, across the room, inconveniently in everyone’s way?” You got it, Walker.)

The first step to a cable-free solution? MagC, which calls itself the “world’s first wireless charging case for MacBooks.”

The MagC, which is no bigger than a standard protective case, sits flush onto the bottom of your computer and into your USB-C port. While it still sort of tethers you to a cable (the charging station is plugged in), the popularity of wireless charging may urge hotels, restaurants, airports, etc. to create more wireless charging ports in the future — meaning, at some point, you’ll never need to bring an extra cable or battery with you. You’ll just plop down your computer and be ready to roll. 

Because it’s equipped with Qi standard components, the MagC is also compatible with the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X — so you can wirelessly charge your laptop and phones at the same time.

Available in Conserve (maintaining your battery) and Surge (charging your computer) variations, prices start at $139 during Kickstarter pre-orders, a 30% savings off of the future retail price.
