Tesla launches AirPower-inspired wireless charging pad
The Tesla Wireless Charging Platform charges up to three devices at once
Tesla has launched AirPower-inspired wireless charging pad. The new Tesla Wireless Charging Platform is a beefy, brutalist multi-device charger.
The wireless charging world is littered with options, from established ones like Belkin and Anker to endless no-name brands sold on Amazon.
However, this Tesla charger may be one of the most successful alternatives to Apple’s wireless charging misstep yet, if you can stomach the $300 it’s now selling for on the Tesla store.
The Tesla Wireless Charging Platform is a hefty slab of aluminum that charges up to three devices at once. It weighs 1.6 pounds (747g) or 2.3 pounds (1,026g) with its wedge-shaped magnetic stand attached. Its footprint of 8.6 x 5.1 inches (220mm x 130mm) is similar to folding a letter-sized sheet of paper in half – a pointy, metal paper that probably thinks it can get rich quick with a ChatGPT-powered side hustle.
Beneath its Alcantara microsuede-lined surface are 30 overlapping coils arranged in four layers. This means you can just plop your Qi-enabled phone down nearly anywhere within its three side rails without concern for alignment or positioning, as the charger can simultaneously tap up to three coils to create the required magnetic field for charging.
FRAMEWORK ANNOUNCES LAPTOP 16 AND PROMISES ‘HOLY GRAIL’ OF UPGRADABLE GRAPHICS
It’s been four years since Dell promised the Alienware Area-51m would be a truly upgradable gaming laptop and nearly two years since the company got sued for utterly failing to deliver that dream.
Now, Framework, the sole company in modern memory* with an actual track record of delivering a fully upgradable laptop, is taking a stab at it, too. At the 2023 Game Developers Conference, it’s announcing and previewing the Framework Laptop 16, its second laptop platform ever, with the claim that it’s “delivering on the holy grail for gamers, creators and others who need power, with modular upgradable graphics!” Framework CEO tells The Verge.
“We’ve looked at all the reasons that [upgradable graphics] have gone wrong in the past and designed Framework Laptop 16 in a way that we have a ton of design freedom to be able to really drive modularity across generations.” One option is a thermal module that’s “actually just two fans that cool the system,” says the CEO, but you can replace it with a larger graphics module that’s thicker and deeper than you could ever fit inside the chassis.
