Accessory maker Kanex provides affordable solutions for Mac and iOS users including docks, power banks, chargers, Lightning cables and much more. Today, the company is introducing us to some new colorways for its GoPower Plus portable power banks along with a new Apple Watch companion gadget.
Luxury Book iPhone 7 Plus Case
Kanex has loads of accessories for MacBook, iPhone and iPad, but not so many for Apple’s wrist-mounted wearable. The new GoPower Watch Stand will now sit alongside the previously released GoPower Watch portable battery to round out the company’s Apple Watch accessory lineup.
The new stand will simultaneously act as a dock while charging your Apple Watch and at least one other device like your phone or iPad.
According to Kanex, the magnetic charging stand features the same inductive charging connector that ships with Apple Watch. Andrew Truong of Kanex says the stand is designed with “sleek, minimalism in mind” and is more than capable of both displaying and charging the 38mm and 42mm Watch models.
Like most good Apple Watch charging docks, the GoPower has a handy little USB connector along the back side so you can charge your iPhone and other devices at the same time. And don’t worry, its completely MFi-certified.
As for the GoPower Plus portable power banks, we are getting new Rose Gold and Matte Black color options. The 8,000mAh batteries come with Lightning and micro-USB cables for iOS and Android devices.
Kanex says both the $69.95 GoPower Watch Stand and new $59.95 GoPower Plus portable power bank colors are available now on its site and Amazon. But we are yet to see the Amazon listings go live or options for the new colorways. Pricing on both seems a little steep to me as there are loads of options on Amazon for charging docks starting at around $13 Prime shipped. You can even find Twelve South Apple Watch solutions for around $60.
Speaking of Apple Watch and the coolest ways to display them. It doesn’t get much better than the Elago’s W3 and W4 Apple Watch Stands made to look like the iconic colorful eMac. Better yet, we are giving some away right now! You can get all the details right here.
