A charging stand is a convenient fixture that not just holds your phone but allows you to watch videos or movies conveniently even while charging, or just use it as a simple phone stand. Would it be better if, instead of just a holder or a stand, it can also support wireless and fast charging? We all know the convenience what these technologies can bring to our daily lives, so it is not surprising that products are now designed to support them. Bestand 3-in-1 charging stand is said to be one of the best wireless charging stand in the market right now. Let us find out why.
Product Name: Bestand 3-in-1 Aluminum Wireless Charging Stand
Wireless Power : 10 Watts max
Size : 7.2 in x 5.12 in x 2.71 in
Compatibility : All Qi-enabled or wireless-charging-enabled devices

Category : wireless charging stand
Bestand 3-in-1 wireless charging stand is designed to hold your iPhone, an iWatch, and Airpods at the same time. It has a wireless charger for charging your iPhone, a holder for your iWatch, and a built-in Airpods charging line. The charger supports standard and fast charging or quick charge.
The product is made for Apple devices but since the wireless charger is compatible with all qi-enabled or wireless charging-enabled devices, you can also use it to charge Android phones and other supported gadgets.
This charging stand is made of aluminum alloy which is durable and sturdy enough to hold even a bigger iPad.
Supports qi wireless charging
The wireless charging stand is equipped with a qi wireless charger which is made of 2 charging coils. This structure allows you to put your device vertically or horizontally and still the wireless charging still functions. The only drawback of these wireless chargers that are positioned in this angle is that, sometimes the wireless charging does not work.
Good thing that the wireless charger’s 2 charging coils cover a wider wireless range and is inclined enough to keep the surface of your qi-enabled device in contact with the wireless charger’s surface. The sturdy aluminum alloy material prevents the product from being deformed and maintains the originally designed angle, to keep the wireless charging functions all the time even after long time of use.
Well, basically, the science of wireless charging states that you do not have to make both surfaces in contact with each other to function, but there is a maximum distance that needs to be kept. In this Bestand’s case, the allowable distance is 8mm maximum. So if your mobile phone case is thicker than 8mm, the wireless charging will not function. You need to remove it first. As another reminder, metals and magnetism affect wireless charging function so be sure to take off metal rings, metal cases, metal objects or magnets which are located directly to the wireless charging sweet spot.
There is also provided slot for charging an Apple watch. However, the charging cable for Apple watch is not included in the package since if you have an Apple watch, you should have the charging cable. You just need to attach it to the provided slot and you are ready to go. You also need to plug it separately.
The built-in Airpods charging line is hidden which preserves the neat look of the charging stand. The lightning charging cable is integrated in the base, and of course, it is included in the product upon purchase.
Supports fast charging
Bestand 3-in-1 wireless charging stand supports fast charge of Samsung devices (10 W) and other quick-charge devices (7.5W) such as Apple devices. You need to use a quick charge charger to connect to the wireless charger of this charging stand, which does not come upon purchase to keep its affordability. This should not be a big deal, because if your phone supports fast charging, it also comes with a fast charger which you can use instead.
In case you want to watch movies in your tablet, with its durable metal alloy material, Bestand charging stand can also be used to hold even a heavier iPad or other tablets. Whether you want to charge your device or just want to use it as a phone stand, this wireless charging stand will do the job.
The design and finish of the charging stand blends well with your decors and it adds some highlight where it is placed, whether in an office or at home. Its weight of almost 500 grams and an anti-slip base makes the stand stable enough to hold a heavier device.
The package does only come with the charging stand and a micro-USB cable which you need to connect to your own device’s charger. On the front you will find the wireless charger(left side), the iWatch stand(upper right), and a seated Airpods charger connector(right side). At the back, you will notice the holes and slot designed to gather all the charging cables together.
The package, as been made clear by the seller in its 2-in-1 version, does not contain the quick charge charger and iWatch charger. I cannot say this is a drawback but it is a good consideration by the manufacturer. When you purchase your phone, iWatch, or Airpods, a charger always comes with it so there is no need for additional one. Not to mention that adding these accessories will make the product pricey.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY
The aluminum material alloy finish matches well with Apple devices especially with iMac. It looks stylish and elegant on a desk or table with sturdy-built.
Worth the money
The product works just fine for cordless charging of an iPhone, iWatch, and Airpods simultaneously. You just need to plug 3 chargers at the same time in an outlet.
The stand functions as advertised, charging 3 devices at the same time. The set up is not that difficult. You just need to run the cables through the stand, but after setting it up once, you will feel how it makes charging 3 items with different charging needs quite convenient. Just place the devices on the provided chargers, and charging starts automatically.
Personally I like the idea of incorporating the 3 devices in one stand. A phone, an earphone, and a smartwatch usually work together well and allowing you to keep and charge them together in a single station is an ingenious idea. Bestand Wireless Charging Dock may not be the best wireless charging stand but it is one of the bests.
I can say it is worth buying for. You just need to take note that it does not come with the charging cables (except for the built-in Airpods’) or chargers. I can see bad reviews about not having own charging cables or chargers, but if you look at the positive side, could you imagine how much would the charging stand cost if the manufacturer included these accessories?
Moreover, not including these accessories in the package provides you the option to buy (in case, you want additional, aside from the accessories that come with your Apple devices) or not to buy (in case, you want to use your own device’s accessories).
