Anyone ever heard of Tech Zebra? I like this stand...

Featured today on 9to5toys: [specials.9to5toys.com].

I know there's a handful of 3-in-1 stands available, but this is a good size/setup for a desk. I don't need all three devices side by side, taking up a lot of space.

I've never heard of this company but at least they're not one of the Amazon "bunch of consonants in a row" companies.

It looks like the Tech Zebra brand did not exist until 2019 (oldest review of a product on Bez-azon). It looks like a 2020 version of the mail order catalogs my mom used to get 40 years ago. Having a catchy English name isn't much of a step up when much of what they sell is the same stuff drop shipped from China with no US presence.

That charger is slightly better some of their other items...

I'll probably avoid it.

Do wish a more known brand sold something similar; I like the small footprint. (I don't have MagSafe yet; just the older regular Qi charging)

Here is something similar from Costco, on a BF deal. I saw it last night.
Not sure about how it would work with a watch.

I love this one, since it is small for travel, and the AppeWatch sits up, so you can read it in Nightstand mode.

Normally, that green ring animation isn't supposed to be available to non-MagSafe chargers.

It's not MFi and doesn't claim to be MagSafe compatible, just compatible with Apple and other brands.

A non-MagSafe charger wireless charger that works with the 12 and 13 series 'Phones will have the green battery and lightning bolt icon in the upper right, but I prefer the big green circle.

I would expect that no charging stand or pad should be expected to work with a Watch unless it's stated so in the product description. A pad area that charges AirPods won't charge a Watch and vice versa.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

RAM,

That actually looks like a decent travel stand. I always pack one of these in my suitcase when I traveL

[www.dell.com]

Works great for cables for phones (i.e .iphone 11 pro), tabelts (Kindle Fire 8, iPad Mini 5), various USB bluetooth headphones, charging case for airpods and even a UV-C box (that requires a USB cable and charger for power). I attach two cables to the USB ports, use the outlets for AC adapters. Combine the chargers with a quality 3 in 1 cable that handles USB micro, lightning and USB-C and you're good to go.

Now that I've seen the Costco device linked by rGC, I may grab one of those. Combine that with the Tripp-Lite and a few cables and I'm good to go for everything except a laptop. 'course, I always have a couple of 3 in 1 cables and a phone and iPad charger on hand in my backpack. One way or the other, devices can get charged as long as I have an outlet or two.

Robert
