'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
Wireless charging should make it easy to keep your devices powered. At home, that certainly rings true. Most charging pads are designed to be placed permanently on a desk or nightstand. But what about when you're on the go?
That is where MagStack comes in useful. This 3-in-1 charging station can power all your devices at once, and it folds small enough to fit in your pocket. In a special limited-time offer, you can get it today for just $48.
The design of MagStack is radically different from most wireless charging stations. Instead of having coils embedded in bulky blocks, this charger is made up of three compact ABS pads, held together by flexible silicone. This makes the MagStack very lightweight, and surprisingly compact.
The three charging spots are optimized for Apple's MagSafe standard, with magnetic auto-alignment for the latest iPhones. However, the MagStack also works perfectly with Qi devices. This means you can charge a wide range of phones, tablets, earbuds, smartwatches, fitness trackers, and other devices.
If you only need to charge one device, MagStack has another neat feature to offer. Instead of laying the pads flat, you can attach them in a loop and create a small charging stand. This is really useful for FaceTiming friends, catching up on Netflix, and checking flight information while you work.
Once you're ready to move, the MagStack charger folds into a neat little stack, measuring three inches square and one inch thick. It's perfect for traveling light, hotdesking, and any other time you're away from home.
