Xiaomi’s wireless charging pad is the latest clone to attempt the AirPower dream

From The Verge: Xiaomi unveiled a new wireless charging pad during its Mi Mix event this morning. The pad is capable of simultaneously charging three devices without precise placement, similar to the canceled Apple AirPower charger.

According to Xiaomi, this wireless charging pad features up to 20W of wireless power per device and includes 19 coils, allowing users to place any three devices that support Qi wireless charging, according to Xiaomi.

Unlike most other clones out there, Xiamoi’s wireless charging pad is more affordable, selling for about $90. However, it is unknown if the charging pad will see a release outside of China

Xiaomi is not the first company to make its own clone of the Apple AirPower. In 2019, Nomad released the Base Station Pro, an 18-coil wireless charger that can charge any three devices with no specific placement, but as noted by my colleague Chaim Gartenberg, one of the downsides was that aside from the iPhone, the pad only provided 5W of charging.
