While Apple is rumored to be launching its AirPower next month, Anker is one step ahead and released its own solution. 

The Anker PowerWave+ Pad has a designated charging spot (7.5W) for the iPhone and a pop-up circle stand for the Apple Watch. Anker claims that the PowerWave+ Pad is case friendly and charges the iPhone through most protective cases.

Although Anker provides a Quick Charge wall charger for the PowerWave+ Pad, it does not include one for the Apple Watch. Another shortcoming of the PowerWave+ Pad is the inability to place the iPhone and Apple Watch anywhere on the pad to charge. 

Available on Amazon for US$55.99 (excluding shipping ees) and Lazada Singapore for S$100 (via a third-party reseller and a promotional price at time of publication), the PowerWave+ Pad is considered a cheaper alternative to the AirPower which is rumored to cost close to S$300. There is another option to consider from Nomad; its Base Station for Apple Watch costs about S$166.
