Want wireless charging to your AirPods case? This Kickstarter has something for you

Apple promised wireless charging capability to its AirPod case a while ago but there is nothing on the market yet. This Kickstarter, on the other hand, is trying to beat Apple with its PowerPod.

From custom ports to standard USB to type-C, there have been numerous changes to how we refuel our gadgets but the basics have remained the same- plug one end of the cord to the gadget and other to a socket. But with wireless charging, things have taken a turn.

The problem, however, is that the technology is moving slow. Take Apple, for example, last year during the launch of iPhone X, it also promised to release a new generation of AirPods inclusive of a wireless charging-capable case. It has been months, but there is no concrete news of it yet, lest the launch.

But as always, Kickstarter has a solution- PowerPod case. If you don’t already know, the AirPod case is protected by Silicone and PowerPod case is a silicone case that will house your AirPod case. Confused? See, like your AirPod goes into AirPod-case for charging, PowerPod is a case for your AirPod-case for charging.

At this point, it is available at “super early bird” price of $20 and a retail price of 40$- which is definitely lesser than what you would have to pay once Apple comes out with its own case. But there is a catch- the PowerPod won’t be shipping any time before July. So, you if you pay 20$ now and Apple releases its case before PowerPod, you might feel like a loser. However, if it does manage to beat Apple in the race to the market, 20$ is definitely worth it.
