Fast charge Watch
Foldable for travel
Super compact design
We love the snappy neatness of this multi-device charging station, which is not just a great way to declutter your desk or bedside table, but a properly portable solution, too. It is a foldable, small-footprint charging station for iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods that can slip into your pocket but also look like a premium desk-based product when unfolded.
If you own not just an Apple iPhone but AirPods and Apple Watch too, a 3-in-1 multi-device charger will keep your desk free of snaking cables and three different chargers requiring power.
One charging station means one power supply, ridding your workspace or bedside table of too many cables and chargers looking for power sockets.
Journey makes some of our favorite Apple accessories, and its SWIV 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Station is a great solution for not just multi-device charging but also what you take on your travels.
The SWIV 3-in-1 is certified for Apple Watch, so can fast-charge any Apple Watch (Series 7 or later) at 3W. It’s MagSafe-compatible for the iPhone side, which means it can charge at 7.5W rather than the certified Made for MagSafe 15W.
MagSafe works with the iPhone 12 and later (but not the SE). The Qi charging pad is rated at 3W for Apple AirPods (2nd and 3rd generation AirPods, and all AirPods Pro).
The SWIV can be laid flat to take on all its charging duties but is also easily folded for transit. The MagSafe pad folds back onto the Watch charging module and magnetically snaps shut.
It’s a really neat design and the best travel-friendly folding charger that we’ve tested.
You can place your Apple Watch in Nightstand mode or flat on the base as the charging module can flip up to your preference.
It’s made of aluminum with a vegan leather material base and has a small-footprint design—taking up less space on your desk than an iPhone Pro: 8.3 x 2.9 x 0.5 inches (21 x 7.4 x 1.3cm) when open, and 5.2 x 2.9 x 1 inches (13.3 x 7.4 x 2.5cm) closed. It weighs just 5.2oz (147g), and is available in just one color: white
It doesn’t ship with a power adapter, so you’ll need at least a 20W USB-C charger, though Journey does supply a 5-foot (1.5m) USB-C cable.
The Journey SWIV 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Station costs $119.99/£89.99/€112,95 and is available directly from Journey (U.S./U.K./CA/AU/E.U.).
