Although Apple has already announced that new AirPods will be launched during 2018 offering the ability to wirelessly charge them as well as providing users with a number tweaks and enhancements when compared to the first generation AirPods launched last year. If you are interested in adding wireless charging connectivity to your first-generation AirPods you may be interested in alternative wireless charger specifically designed for Apple’s AirPods and launched by Kickstarter this week in the form of the PowerPod.
The PowerPod wireless charger jacket designed for the first-generation AirPods is available for just $20 and will start shipping out to backers during July 2018, if the Kickstarter campaign was successful. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the PowerPod case sleeve designed by Sameer Bhutani.
The PowerPod wireless charging sleeve is constructed from high quality silicone and contours to the AirPod case. The silicon case provides heat resistance and acts as an “ideal insulator between the wireless charging coil and the AirPod Case” says Sameer. A Lighting connection at the bottom of the silicon allows you to easily slide in and connect your AirPod Case.
