At its iPhone X event last September, Apple previewed a new wireless charging case for AirPods, for use with its upcoming AirPower charging mat. The new case looks similar to the current version, which charges via Lightning cable, but it has a built-in induction coil that also enables wireless charging.
Conveniently, it appears that the AirPower won’t be the only way to wirelessly charge AirPods placed in the new case.
Chinese publication Chongdiantou, citing unnamed sources within Apple’s supply chain, claims that the wireless AirPods case supports the Wireless Power Consortium’s universal Qi standard, implying that it will be compatible with [...]

Elevation Lab, known for its popular line of wired dock options for the iPhone, recently came out with its first wireless charging dock, the NightPad.
The NightPad, which is a 7.5W charger, looks like a lot of other wireless chargers on the market, but there are some premium features to be aware of.
