Twelve South today announced its latest HiRise accessory, called the “HiRise Wireless,” and it’s available to purchase now on Twelve South’s website. The new accessory is a multi-purpose wireless charging stand with two distinct positions: you can charge your iPhone upright in a traditional stand position, or pop out the Qi-certified Power Disc for a miniature device that’s perfectly sized to charge AirPods, or to bring with you when you travel.
The Power Disc is also USB-C compatible, so that when you bring it on a trip you can leave the included power cord at home and use the USB-C cable that comes with the latest MacBook and iPad Pro models to charge your iPhone or AirPods on the mat. Twelve South built the accessory with size in mind, ensuring that it has a small footprint in both charging positions: the main base of the accessory measures 3.5 inches across all sides, while the Power Disc is an oval that measures 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches.
I’ve had a chance to use the new HiRise Wireless stand over the course of the past week, and it’s quickly replaced the previous Choetech wireless charging stand I had next to my iMac. The design of the accessory matches the quality of Twelve South’s previous HiRise products, with a soft-touch leather padding that looks nice alongside the device’s chrome detailing.
