Zensâ€™ new battery pack has a wireless charger on both sides, allowing you to charge two Qi-compatible devices simultaneously in what can only be described as a â€ścharging sandwich.â€ť The Dual Powerbank was announced alongside a trio of other battery packs including the Magnetic Single Powerbank, the Single Powerbank with Stand (which can itself be wirelessly charged, as well as wirelessly charge other devices), and the 10,000 mAh Powerbank with Stand.
Although you could theoretically use it to charge two Qi-compatible phones, the intended use case appears to be charging an iPhone along with an accessory like a pair of AirPods. Thatâ€™s because one side of the battery pack includes a MagSafe connection, which should keep it centered on iPhone 12 devices featuring the embedded magnets. However, the accessory isnâ€™t capable of fast charging at MagSafeâ€™s 15W maximum, instead itâ€™s limited to 7.5W when charging an iPhone.
With a capacity of 4,000 mAh
Otherwise, the Dual Powerbank includes a USB-C port for charging its 4,000 mAh battery, as well as a small kickstand on one side so you can keep your phone propped up while itâ€™s charging.
While the likes of Zens and Anker have been quick to make use of Appleâ€™s latest wireless charging tech, the Cupertino company is yet to release a MagSafe battery pack of its own. Bloomberg reported in February that such an accessory is in development at the company, but that itâ€™s facing development issues relating to the iPhoneâ€™s software thinking itâ€™s overheating.
Update June 17th, 4:28AM ET: Updated with Zensâ€™ confirmation of iPhone charging speeds.
