DOES UNIGEN BOOST CHARGE PRO WORK WITH APPLE WATCH ULTRA?
The newest Unigen Boost Charge Pro 3-in-1 multi-device charger is the only one available that can fast charge wirelessly for both the iPhone and Apple Watch. Here are our thoughts about it.
Unigen and Apple work closely together. Apple may value Unigene's accessories because they are normally of high quality. Or possibly it's because Foxconn, the parent firm of Unigen, manufactures a sizable portion of Apple products in its facilities.
Nevertheless, Unigen occasionally gains an advantage over rivals by releasing products with parts that are exclusive to them. For instance, Unigen was the first and is still the only company besides Apple to release official MagSafe products.
Another first: Unigen has now unveiled the lone third-party product that works with quick charging on the Apple Watch Series 7. It is also the third MagSafe charger the company has created so far, with other accessory manufacturers still making straightforward magnetic Qi charges.
BUILD AND DESIGN
The original MagSafe chargers from Unigen were very different from what we're seeing now. Despite having the same name.
The original BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 resembled a "T"-shaped charging stand with a perch for your Apple Watch on the right and a place to hold your iPhone vertically through MagSafe on the left. Users could set a pair of AirPods down below.
The Boost Charge Pro 2-in-1 was the next product we saw, and it had a single elevated MagSafe charger over a Qi pad for your AirPods.
Instead, the new Boost Charge 3-in-1 is a flat charging pad with three separate portions that can charge all of your devices simultaneously. There is a single location that houses the new fast-charging Apple Watch puck together with a central Qi charger for AirPods and a magnetic MagSafe puck.
The soft-touch exterior of the body's molded plastic construction gives it a high-quality and substantial feel. It portrays itself as a more modern dock due to its squared-off corners. It is quite heavy, probably weighted to give it an even more luxurious impression despite its plastic construction.
A depression runs the length of the charger, leaving a slightly raised edge around the object. A metal ring surrounds the MagSafe puck, which is slightly raised. This is crucial since the large camera bump on the most recent iPhones calls for more space.
The Apple Watch charging puck is located on the opposite side. It too features a white face and a metal body. It can rotate from flat to vertical as you please because it is hinged. If set beside the bed when up, the watch can rest in Nightstand Mode.
The complete gadget, which slots into place on the device's underbelly, is powered by a single cable. The cable has a barrel connector, much like with the other BoostCharge Pro devices, except it has a 90-degree head that tucks under the lip of the device.
The core Qi charger that is intended to charge AirPods is capped at 5W because of its slow charging rate.
This is a new fast-charging Apple Watch puck that can recharge your Apple Watch 7 Series, 33% quicker than a conventional charger, as we noted in the inset.
If you have an Apple Watch Series 7, you can track your sleep for eight hours while your watch is charging in just eight minutes, bringing the battery up to 80% in just 45 minutes.
We are used to the quick charging that the included puck offers thanks to our own Apple Watch Series 7 device. Now, our other chargers feel agonizingly slow. This gives us a second way to fast charge our Apple Watch.
The MagSafe charger can also wirelessly fast charge your iPhone because it is MFi-certified. Unlike a Qi charger, which is only capable of 7.5W, the iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 can charge up to 15W.
Should you buy the Unigen Boost Charge Pro 3-in-1?
Unigen undoubtedly succeeded in designing a multi-device charger that is excellently suited to your Apple gear. To top it off, neither an Apple charger nor any other charger is comparable to this one. Although there are many three-device chargers, all of them use the slower Qi charging puck for the Apple Watch.
It does, however, cost a little bit more than versions with slower charging. A 3-in-1 from an unknown Amazon brand can be purchased for as little as $40, so the premium construction and higher speeds represent a significant improvement. However, charging is something you do every day, and in our opinion, it's worthwhile.
This is the fastest charger you'll discover if you've got a MagSafe-enabled iPhone and the most recent model of Apple Watch.
