There are many, many charging solutions available for your iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods. Some of them even charge all three of these devices simultaneously. But when I got a briefing from Zagg and Mophie on the Mophie 3-in-1 Extendable Stand Charger, I realized that this particular charging stand would be perfect for my wife. Why? Because she precariously balanced a charging stand on top of some Tupperware when she used it to charge and use her iPhone in the kitchen. This drove me a bit up the wall because her solution was unstable and not very aesthetically pleasing. This has now changed, and it is all thanks to Mophie’s solution. (*Disclosure below.)
The Mophie 3-in-1 Extendable Stand Charger solves a variety of problems. For starters, it allows you to charge three Apple devices simultaneously. Remember, though, you need an Apple iPhone 12 or higher to take advantage of the MagSafe Charger. All three charging solutions involve wireless charging – for the iPhone, the Apple Watch, and AirPods. So, this charger is primarily for the Apple ecosystem (except the AirPods potentially).
But the one thing that makes this charging solution unique from many others in the marketplace is the fact that the MagSafe portion for the iPhone is telescopic and can extend from 7.5″ in height to a whopping 16″. My wife was trying to solve this use case by stacking the previous charger on some Tupperware.

A video review of the Mophie 3-in-1 Extendable Stand
In my video review, I walk through the core features of this Mophie 3-in-1 stand.
Below are more details and some up-close photos of this Mophie stand.
Design: Form Meets Function
The Mophie 3-in-1 Extendable Stand Charger presents a sleek and modern design that aligns with the aesthetics of Apple devices. The extendable arm and adjustable head are the key selling points of this device. It allows for easily customizing the stand’s height and viewing angle. The weighted steel base contributes to a premium feel while ensuring stability during use.
You must be sure that if you use this stand, you have an iPhone that supports MagSafe, AND you need to be sure if you have a case on your iPhone, it is MagSafe-compatible as it assures a secure and reliable connection with Apple devices. The magnetic charging pad’s accurate alignment feature adds a layer of convenience, ensuring optimal charging from the moment your iPhone makes contact.
One of the advantages of using a MagSafe stand is that you can easily rotate your iPhone from Portrait to Landscape mode. This is convenient if you want to watch a movie in landscape or scroll through social media in portrait – you simply rotate your phone on the magnet.
Usage: Simplicity and Versatility
The second standout feature (besides the extendable arm) of the Mophie 3-in-1 Extendable Stand Charger lies in its ability to charge three devices simultaneously at their fastest speeds. With up to 15W of fast-charging wireless power, this MFi-certified charger addresses the needs of your iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch in one fell swoop, streamlining your charging setup.
The extendable arm and tilting head contribute to a versatile user experience. Whether watching videos, engaging in video calls, or simply charging your devices, the stand provides customizable viewing angles to suit your preferences. The ability to charge your phone in both portrait and landscape modes adds an extra layer of flexibility, and you can take advantage of Standby Mode by putting your iPhone in landscape mode while charging.
The Mophie 3-in-1 Extendable Stand Charger lives up to its promise of swift and efficient charging, delivering up to 15W of power to your Apple devices. This means you can get your devices charged much more quickly than with previous chargers. The AirPods section delivers 5W of wireless charging power, so there is no need to plug a lightning or USB-C cable into your AirPods case.
The stand’s capability to charge your Apple Watch from 0-80% in approximately 45 minutes is a notable feature for users valuing speed and efficiency. I have seen other stands where you must supply your own Apple Watch charger. The nice thing about this Mophie 3-in-1 Extendable Stand is that the Apple Watch charger is built-in.
The compact design minimizes surface area usage while elevating your devices above desk clutter, a practical feature for an organized workspace. The base measures a little less than 4 inches wide by 5.75 inches deep, so it does not take up too much space on your desk or tabletop. The sturdy, weighted steel base ensures stability during use, providing a secure foundation for charging devices.
Pricing and final thoughts
The Mophie 3-in-1 Extendable Stand Charger is a bit of a premium solution. But you get an elegant design and look, sturdy construction, and essential core functionality of charging three devices. And yes, those have to be Apple devices, as I mentioned, so other accessories or watches may or may not work. If you are on a budget, this charging solution from Mophie might be a bit out of range.
By the way, here is a side-by-side of my wife’s old solution on the right and the Mophie with the stand only partially extended on the left.
As this is a new product from Mophie and Zagg, it is not currently available on Amazon (as of this writing). However, you can purchase it directly from Mophie on their website for $149.95.
