Elon Musk’s Tesla has announced a new ‘Tesla Wireless Charging Platform’ that is reportedly “inspired by the angular design and metallic styling of [the] Cybertruck.”
The charging pad sports the Tesla logo on the front, offers a 65W power adapter and also features a magnetic detachable stand. The pad is made of aluminum, while the part where you keep your devices is lined with premium alcantara, likely to prevent scratches.
It can charge three devices at once at 15W charging speeds. According to Tesla’s website, the pad also features ‘FreePower technology,’ which means it can charge Qi-capable devices placed anywhere on its surface without a need for precise alignment.
Orders for the wireless charging pad are already live for $300 USD (roughly $409), though it doesn’t start shipping until February 2023. Additionally, the charging pad seems to be limited to the U.S. Tesla store, and it isn’t listed in the Canadian store.
It’s worth noting that $409 CAD for a three-device wireless charger is an exorbitant amount to pay. Some of the best three-device wireless chargers from the likes of Belkin and Anker and others cost less than $150.
