Unravel is the ultimate fast charging station

Most wireless charging pads are flat platforms devoid of any other useful feature. Thanks to a folding design, the Unravel fast charging station offers something a little different.

Unravel is the ultimate fast charging station
  • Do the latest iPhones support wireless charging? Yes, they do. You can charge the iPhone XS and iPhone XR on any Qi charger.
  • What is Qi? It is the most popular standard for wireless charging right now, supported by Samsung, Apple, and other big brands.
  • What is the best fast charging station right now? With three 10W charging pads and multiple configurations, Unravel is leading the way.

The introduction of wireless charging should have been a major upgrade for mobile devices. Yet many current charging pads are less convenient than using a cable. Instead of merely being tethered, your phone has to remain horizontal on a dedicated plate until the battery is full. Furthermore, some chargers can only handle one device at a time.

Unravel offers a refreshing change from the norm. This fast charging station lets you power three devices at top speed, or use your phone for video calls while it’s on charge. In addition, the charger is small enough to fit in your pocket.

How to use your phone during wireless charging

What makes Unravel different is the design of this fast charging station. Instead of being a solid slab, the three charging pads are linked by hinged joints.

Unravel doubles as a charging stand

This allows Unravel to take several different forms. For storage, the charger folds flat. If you just need to top up one device, you leave the charger in this position.

You can use Unravel folded

Alternatively, you can turn Unravel into a triangular charging stand for your phone. This means you can easily check your emails and make video calls while your device is charging.

When flat, Unravel offers three charging pads

If you have more than one device to charge, you can lay out the pads flat. Unravel supports all Qi devices, including the Apple Watch and your AirPods in their case.

Unravel takes up little room on your nightstand

Even in this flat form, the fast charging station takes up relatively little room on your desk or nightstand. It’s powered by a single USB-PD supply; when you’re away from home, you can simply connect it to your laptop or even a back-up battery.

Charging takes less time with Unravel

Perhaps the most impressive thing about Unravel, however, is the speed at which it charges devices.

While most wireless chargers would take nearly 4 hours to charge an iPhone X, Unravel takes just 3.1 hours. Likewise, this charger takes the waiting time for Samsung devices down from 3 hours to just 2.5 hours.

Charge all your devices at once with Unravel

Each charging pad has a grip to keep your device secure, and Unravel even comes with a neat travel case.

Wireless charging heaven

Unravel is perfect for making video calls

We have yet to encounter a more versatile wireless charger than Unravel. The fact it provides three 10W pads is also a huge bonus, as is the charging stand mode.

Upgrades needed?

Depending on which laptop you own, you might need to purchase a separate USB-PD power supply to use Unravel. It’s a minor issue, but all in the name of fast charging.
