Useful Gadget of the Week: Inexpensive Bedside iPhone & Apple Watch Charger

Seneo Qi iPhone and Apple Watch Charger

I’ve tried a couple of these wireless bedside chargers for my phone and watch and this Seneo model is the one I can recommend.

Despite being plastic, it has survived better than my previous metal one. It’s better thought out too. There’s no faffing with the watch strap, just take it off your wrist and set it on the charger where it rests on the little rubber pad beneath.

And because it’s on its side like this, the Apple Watch ‘Nightstand Mode’ kicks in. This allows you to use your watch as your bedside clock.

Bedside Wireless Charger for iPhone and Apple Watch

Any small shock will turn the watch display on briefly to show the date, time and any alarm set. A little silent knock on your nightstand with the heal of your hand is enough to activate it. I love this feature and it works really well.

If I had one niggle it’s that the green charging LED along the front edge is a little bright at night, but that could be solved with some of these.

You’ll need to use your own Apple Watch charging cable and add a USB charger. Nothing fancy is required as speed isn’t really an issue here as you are charging over night, so something like this is ideal.

There are 2 coils so you can have your iPhone in landscape or portrait mode and it will still charge. If you have AirPods then there’s a version for that too.

So, for around twenty quid you can remove your bedside clock, declutter a little and make sure your devices are always charged overnight without having to attach any cables.
