- EASE OF USE
Get the ultimate convenience with Anker’s Foldable 3-in-1 MagGo Wireless Charging Station.
I’ve been very fortunate to be able to travel a few times in the past year, but one of the things I always struggle with is what charging accessories to take with me. Of course, I want to stay as compact and minimal as possible, but I do have three main devices that need charging on a daily basis – my iPhone, my Apple Watch, and my AirPods Pro. I’ve been using the Anker 3-in-1 Cube Charging Station, but it is a bit on the heavy side. Since Anker is one of my go-to charging accessory brands, I was thrilled to learn that they have a newer product that is more conducive for travel — the Anker Foldable 3-in-1 MagGo Wireless Charging Station.

Pricing & Availability
The Anker Foldable 3-in-1 MagGo Wireless Charging Station came in a simple Anker-branded retail box. Some of Anker’s products come in blank boxes, but this charger’s package has a nice image of the product on the front along with several graphic call-outs for its features. When I opened the box, I found the charger alongside its charging cable, power adapter, and user guide.
While a lot of tech companies are moving to a low-impact environmental model and no longer including power adapters, it was refreshing to see one included with this product. I completely respect the companies that are choosing to eliminate that additional product waste, but when a charger claims to provide X amount of power to a device, it’s best to ensure that the consumer has all the necessary pieces so the product can back up those claims. The adapter included with this charging station was a 40W USB-C wall adapter.
The set-up of this charging station is pretty standard. The charging station and power adapter were both wrapped in plastic and the cable was wound up tight with a rubber band. After unpackaging it all I plugged the power adapter into a power strip and then connected the cable to it and the charging station. One of the unique features of the USB-C cable that was included is the 90-degree angle on one end. I really like these types of cables because they clean up cable mess and leave a clean set up.
While it’s not 100% necessary, I did unfold the charging station so that all the charging surfaces were available. Both the Apple Watch and AirPods Pro (Gen 2) connected to the wireless charging surfaces and began charging effortlessly. After verifying that they would charge, I removed those devices and placed my iPhone 14 Pro on the main charging pad. I completed a 30-minute charging test which involves connecting the device you are charging to the charger and then recording the battery gain every 10 minutes.
The phone had a charge of 46% when I started the test and gained 28% during the course of the test. This provided a charging rate of 0.98%, which is quite remarkable for a wireless charging solution. When I removed the phone from the charger, I took a temperature reading with an infrared thermometer and got a reading of 105º on the back of the phone as well as the center of the charging pad. Some heat collection is totally normal and even though the temp was over 100º, this was still an acceptable temperature for proper operation.
The Anker Foldable 3-in-1 MagGo Wireless Charging Station offers a user-friendly and efficient charging experience. The thoughtful packaging, complete with a clear image and detailed feature call-outs, sets a positive tone from the start. It has a straightforward setup process and provides efficient charging performance. Overall, the Anker Foldable 3-in-1 MagGo Wireless Charging Station successfully combines convenience, performance, and thoughtful design, making it a commendable choice for users seeking a reliable and efficient wireless charging solution.
