With Apple introducing the AirPower and AirPods too, it is more than fair to assume they are making a push towards wireless charging. The only down side is that it is only their newest products that have wireless charging capabilities. So what are Apple fans, especially ones that already own AirPods, to do that don’t necessarily want to shell out the extra hundred? Leave it to innovative creators to solve the problem and create a niche market.
The PowerPod Case is a newly launched Kickstarter campaign that enables current AirPods to be wireless charged. It’s already raised more than $20,000 with more than 650 backers in less than 5 days of the campaign becoming live.
As stated on its Kickstarter page, the inventor’s goal is to find a solution to make existing AirPods capable of charging wirelessly to save money and eliminate the potential waste that can be created by people replacing already functioning headphones. Like the video showed, all you have to do is just insert your already own AirPods into the PowerPod to charge them wirelessly.
This PowerPod goes for $25 on Kickstarter right now. This campaign will soon be fully funded as they are only $2,000 away from their goal. If everything goes smoothly, this the PowerPod can serve as a cost-effective option for Apple users.
