If you happen to own the holy trinity of Apple products ( iPhone, Airpods, Apple Watch ) then we can all agree that keeping the three products powered up can be annoying. This is because they all have different cables and proprietary charging solutions.
One of the best solutions to this problem is using a 3-in-1 charging dock. A 3-in-1 charging dock charges all three gadgets at the same time making it super convenient and easy to make sure the three are ready to go.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the best 3-in-1 charging docks from some of the most well known brands, with the most tailoring towards compatibility.
Editors choice: Most of the 3-in-1 charging docks in this list support MagSafe. That means they take advantage of the magnets embedded in the back of the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone 14 range.
If you happen to own a case or planning on getting one, make sure it is compatible with MagSafe.
1. Belkin 3-in-1 Wireless Charger With MagSafe
The Belkin 3-in-1 Wireless charger has a classy chrome charging tree that suspends two of your Apple gadgets in midair, and the relatively compact T-shaped design won’t take up much room on your desk or nightstand.
The wireless charger supports Apple’s 15W charging speed, and it can also fast-charge the Apple Watch Series 7, Series 8, and Apple Watch Ultra. Drop the AirPods Pro (or AirPods with wireless charging case) onto the base, and you’ll be topping up all these devices from a single outlet.
The best part is that you can place your iPhone in landscape orientation to watch a video while it charges. Belkin also sells a pad version if you don’t want to have your devices propped vertically.

2. Satechi 3-in-1 Magnetic Wireless Charging Dock
The Satechi 3-in-1 is an attractive charging dock made of aluminum. The iPhone mount is made of stainless steel, adding to it’s attractive build. However, the Satechi 3-in-1 requires you have your own 20W power adapter.
It does not support Apple’s 15W charging speeds but this shouldn’t be a problem if you only juice up your gadgets overnight. It’s a little smaller than the Belkin, so it won’t take too much space on desk or room.

3. Mophie 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Dock
If you happen to be using an older iPhone that does not support MagSafe, this 3-in-1 charging stand is a sound alternative to the Belkin. The upright magnetic puck for the Apple Watch enables Nightstand mode (basically, a digital clock).
And the center stand lets you place your iPhone vertically or horizontally. There’s also an indented spot for earbud cases, ensuring they won’t slide off easily. An elegant glass finish lends it a classy look and feel.
It also has LED indicators at the front of the charging stations for the iPhone and AirPods, making it easy to check if they are charging or not.

4. Twelve South HiRise Wireless Charging Dock
If you don’t have a lot of space to spare on your bedside table or desk, this 3-in-1 charger from Twelve South is your best bet. There’s an angled MagSafe perch for your iPhone, a shelf up top for your Apple Watch, and a spot for your AirPods underneath.
It’s a compact design that makes it easy to glance at your iPhone, though this does mean you can’t utilize the Nightstand mode of your Apple Watch. Unlike some 3-in-1 stands, it’s very stable, and everything stays securely in place through the night.
It comes with a 5-foot USB-C cable, but you do need to provide your own power adapter (20 watts or above).

5. Anker Multi-Device Detachable Wireless Charging Dock

The iPhone charger is a 10,000 MAh power bank that sits in a slot of the base station that passively charges both it and the connected iPhone.
The Apple Watch charger, certified by Apple, is connected to the base via a USB-C slot that also plugs into the power bank for on the go dual-device charging.
