OtterBox has a solution to limited battery life. Today, the company revealed OtterSpot, its Qi wireless charging power bank, and stackable batteries. The OtterSpot Charging Base looks a bit like a thin hockey puck. It's designed to be stackable, meaning you can pile up to three puck-like OtterBox Wireless Charging Batteries and a device on top of it and charge all of them simultaneously. Each battery can then power any Qi-enabled device and support wired charging via a USB-C port. The battery packs come with 5,000 mAh of capacity and up to 10-watt wireless charging speeds.

The base charging system starts at $129.95 and includes one wireless battery. Additional batteries and charging bases cost $69.95. OtterBox is also offering a Wireless Charging Pad, $49.95, and a Charging Stand, $59.95. The charging devices will work with Qi-enabled phones like the iPhone XS, Samsung Galaxy S10, Google Pixel 3 and others.

Apple is offering Mophie-brand AirPower alternatives

Apple is offering Mophie-brand AirPower alternatives After publicly announcing the AirPower's official demise in March, Apple has decided to still offer users a wireless charging pad through its website and in-store; however, the charging pads come from a different company entirely: Mophie. Instead, the company has begun offering users similar devices made by Mophie at Apple stores and online. The two devices -- already available on Apple's website and in select stores in the US -- are Mophie's Wireless Charging Dual Pad and 3-in-1 Charging Pad. Visually, both appear to be "AirPower clones," except that the pads are black and a bit thicker. The former option can charge two Qi-compatible devices up to 7.

These days there are plenty of Qi wireless charging power banks to choose from, though most need a wall adapter. The portable batteries will likely appeal to those on the go. If you own a Tesla Model 3, you might opt for the car's charging pad. But if you were holding out for Apple's AirPower (long-promised and recently canceled), the OtterSpot might be a consolation.
