While the Apple Watch design allowed us to not have to physically connect the charger to the Watch itself via wireless charging, you still have to carry a specialized Apple Watch charging cable with you if you plan on traveling with your Watch. Of course, many of us are used to carrying a bunch of cables – we are far from having pure wireless charging for everything – being able to eliminate specialize cables from the mix and just carry a couple is much better that having a bag full of digital spaghetti. AND, when you are on the go, sometimes plugs are not readily available so having a portable battery charger for your smart devices is pretty much essential. The Kanex GoPower Watch lets you leave one of those custom cables at home and bring portable charging power with you!
Many of the available Apple Watch charging solutions, portable or fixed, require you to “provide your own charging cable.” So essentially, they are just holders for your Watch AND the cable (the one your Watch came with). In my mind, this sort of defeats the purpose of having a secondary charging solution for your Watch. And, there are very few “certified” manufacturers of Apple Watch charging cable. These cables, Apple’s or via a 3rd party, are still not exactly cheap, starting at $25 and going up. To manufacture a solution, you need to have an inductive charging “puck” (the circular, magnetic portion that connects to your Watch to charge it). There aren’t that many really unique and good Apple Watch charging solutions out there…until Kanex developed their GoPower Watch.Read More
