The latest iPhone devices support wireless charging. Although there are Qi chargers available in many shapes and sizes, most of them have a major drawback. To use them, your iPhone must be flat on its back with the screen facing the ceiling. To check the weather, a sports score or any other notification, you need to pick up your iPhone from the charger. Twelve South has the answer to this problem with the HiRise Wireless. This mount allows you to charge your iPhone in front of you, not the clouds.
A wireless charger that lets you keep track of notifications
the HiRise Wireless Not only gives you a way to charge your iPhone, but also a holder to hold your device upright. The beautiful bronze chrome stand and base has just enough weight and durability to stay put. The top of the base features a soft leather pad to protect your device.
Your iPhone sits securely and comfortably upright. It is slightly tilted, perfect for viewing your screen without picking up your iPhone. The only downside I see is if you’re not completely wireless and still use earphones or wired headphones. You can still use the stand by placing your iPhone in the Lightning socket, but it’s not as stable that way.
Charge more than your iPhone
As if pairing wireless charging with a cradle wasn’t enough, you can also use the HiRise Wireless to charge your AirPods and charging case. The charging disc easily detaches from the holder, so you can put the pad down and place your AirPods case on it to charge it.
The loading disc will work with any Qi-enabled device, in fact. It provides up to 10 watts of charging power, so even the most power-hungry tablets will have enough juice to recharge quickly.
A compact travel companion
The Qi charging disk can also be easily removed from the holder. It’s great for traveling, as you can take your charger with you on your travels without needing the mount. It’s perfect for those who want to travel light.
Since the HiRise Wireless uses a detachable USB-C charging cable, the same chargers and cables as your MacBook or iPad Pro will work with it. You don’t have to bring a ton of cables and chargers.
Final thoughts on the HiRise Wireless
There’s a lot to like about the TwelveSouth HiRise Wireless. Unsurprisingly, given the company’s other great products, there’s very little to dislike about this handy charging stand. It’s versatile, rugged and luxurious, yet still light enough to win on the run. If you’re a fan of the ability to charge your devices wirelessly, this is a fantastic way to do it.
