Bestand Charging Dock, Best Wireless Charging Stand?

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 DESCRIPTION

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.

 

PRODUCT FEATURES

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.

Versatile device

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.

 

PRODUCT UNBOXING

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.

 

PLUS:

  • Supports wireless charging
  • Supports fast charging
  • Compatible with all qi-enabled or wireless charging-enabled devices
  • 3-in-1 charging stand (Smartphone, Apple watch, Airpods)
  • Versatile and convenient charging stand
  • Sturdy metal alloy material
  • One year warranty

 

DRAWBACKS:

  • Better if the phone stand’s angle is adjustable (in case you want to use as a stand only)
  • Better if all charging cables can be incorporated into one adapter (for convenience’s sake although this will increase the price)

 

WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY

Nice look

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.

Convenient

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.

 

CONCLUSION

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).

  1. Thanks for the info and review on Bestand 3-in-1 wireless charging stand, I have been looking a wireless stand for my phone and hope it works. My phone supports wireless charging which saves me the time of plugging and unplugging for charging. This is a very good writeup, am bookmarking this page for further info. Keep up the good work. 

    • Hi Ayodeji! Thanks for dropping by. If your phone supports wireless charging, you can go for it. You can maximize the 3-in-1 function of this product if you have the 3 Apple devices. 

  2. Hi Dan, we all know technology is just getting advanced every day and every time, I will say this is one of the advancement in technology that I love, the 3 in 1 aspects of it makes it more unique, not just only that, it’s quite affordable, it’s saves time and very convenient to use, amazing, thanks for sharing 

    • Yes wireless charging is just so convenient. I am also amazed how manufacturers are able to conceptualize unique products to adapt to the technology that is fast-phasing, just like this Bestand wireless charging stand.

  3. This is good information and very informative article I must say. Phone stand coupled with wireless charging. Apple is really going greater and better each day, giving it’s user’s better solution and quality. I’ll definitely get one of these Phone stand specified in this article. I’m a tech savvy always have a passion for tech gadgets. Thanks once more for sharing this wonderful article. Cheer’s

    • Hi Tony! Thank you for your interest in this charging stand. Just want to make clear that this is not an Apple product but a product made for Apple devices. 

  4. The problem I have with these wireless stand chargers is that they get spoilt very quickly. I had one that I had barely used for 6months before it packed up to my dismay. I did have a warranty and took it back to get it fixed but it packed up again after another. 7months and I gave up. I would  nevertheless give the Bestand 3-in-1 Aluminum Wireless Charging stand a go and see if your review was accurate. 

    • Thanks for sharing your experience Vapz! Well, 6 or 7 months working fine is already reasonable for not so high-end device. But if you bought the premium one, that is too disappointing even if it comes with a warranty. 

  5. Thank you for this review, I was interested to read it because my husband recently bought a wireless phone charger that I think is quite ugly and can only charge one device at a time. This one looks much more slick and it’s great it can charge three things at once. It says in the review it can charge phone, watch, etc at the same time, is it able to charge two phones at the same time? We both have android, but sounds like that’s not a problem with this device. Thank you.

    • Hi Emily! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Sorry but it cannot charge 2 phones simultaneously. It is designed to hold and charge 3 different devices and not 3 similar devices. On the other hand, you can charge both iPhone and Android device or qi wireless-enabled phones.

  6. Thank you for making this review of the bestand charging dock. This is something I’ll concider to get for my husband’s birthday that’s coming soon. The convenience of charging all three devices is great. He always held up his phone by hand to watch his videos and it gets tiring, so a atand like this would be nice on our tables.

    • I also like the idea of incorporating 3 devices in one charging dock such as this Bestand wireless charging stand. Not to mention that aside from the wireless charging it also supports fast charging. Moreover, it is a sturdy metal stand for phones and tablets.

  7. Awesome! I love the simplicity at which you write. Precise and straight to point. I got a wireless charging stand November last year and it gave me a awful experience, my phone discharges quickly at a speed of light. I had to return it, it was partly my fault for not doing a proper research, like I’m doing now. This bestand charging dock looks good from your review, I will give it a try.

    • Thanks for sharing your experience about wireless charging stand. Sometimes it is disappointing when we encounter defective products even if they have warranty. As with other products there would always be drawbacks. You just need to weigh the advantage and disadvantage. It is also wise to take note reminders of the manufacturer especially device compatibility.

  8. The improvement or advancement in technology which has gotten up to this extent of having a wireless charging device. This is greatly astonishing when you think of how possible it is to charge phone with a wireless accessory. From your article I think the pros outweighs the cons and that’s very good about the device. 

    • Everything is becoming wireless so it is not surprising that at present most latest chargers and phones supports wireless charging. You can visit my other post about wireless charging here.Thanks.

  9. I didn’t realize that such a product was available.

    My children bought the phone for me and I thought it had to be plugged in by just the charging cord that came with it.

    What I find very interesting is that I can charge both the phone and the Ipad at the same time.

    Does it matter if the I Pad is obviously an Apple product and the phone is not an Apple phone?

    I don’t have much expertise with these things as I am an older person and this is a bit beyond me.

    • Hi John! Thanks for your interest to this wireless charging stand. Sorry but an iPad does not support wireless charging so it cannot be charged with this product. On the other hand, you can use it as an iPad stand whenever you want to watch movies or videos. If the phone bought for you supports qi wireless charging you can charge it with this charging stand. 

  10. Great Article Dan, 

    Thanks for sharing, I am an android user myself so I liked the fact that the charging doc works with both Apple and android phones. I think the 3-in-1 idea is also a great strategy to allow apple product owners to use only one charger for multiple devices at the same time. I like the fact that there are other options that are wireless too, we have all had the bad experience when your charger starts acting crazy because the cord is bad. I think this is a very useful product with lots of benefits for apple product users. 

    Best regards, 

    Jefrey M. 

    • Hi Jeffrey! Thanks for dropping by. Yes Bestand wireless charging stand is best used with Apple devices since it is designed to hold and charge 3 of them at the same time. Though you need to set up the cables, but once done the first time, you can enjoy the convenience of wireless charging technology.

  11. Thanks for this lovely article and i must commend your efforts for putting this lovely post together. Your article about charging stand is relevant to what i have been longing for over the years. From your review, i can see that its highly durable and one of the best charging stand i can ever imagine.

    Thanks for sharing; I am making my purchase with immediate effect 

    • I’m glad you liked this post and it helped you in some way. Before you make your purchase be reminded that this charging stand does not come with its own cables. Enjoy your shopping.

  12. Dan, thank you for reviewing the Bestand Wireless charging stand.   I’ve been using a charging stand for my Ipad and it’s keypad.  I decided I like the charging stand.   

    Yet, I have wanted one for my phone since I prefer to keep it in a different place at night than my Ipad.     I use an Otter Box cover on my Iphone, so I appreciate the heads up that the  super thick  Otterbox case might not work so well with this stand.  I don’t want to have to remove my phone from it’s case every day.   I guess I am lazy.   

     Thinking about it, I suppose I should find a more heavy duty stand than one that is commonly described as stylish and elegant.   Your review has been very helpful.  Thank you!  

    • Hi Sandra! Otterbox cases are not recommended if you want to charge your phone with wireless chargers. There is a maximum distance that must be kept for the wireless to function. However, there is a Bestand model without the wireless charging function. Instead, it comes with the standard wired charging where you do not have to remove the phone’ s case.

  13. Hi Dan! I really like the Bestand wireless charging stand. It’s very convenient. There are many occasions where I would greatly appreciate to have it. And the fact that it also supports other devices as Android is a cool feature.

    I really don’t mind that it doesn’t have its own cables. It makes it cheaper. And besides we will be using the ones that came with the phone. Thank you very much for this review.

    • Hi Henry! Thank you for sharing your thoughts about this wireless charging stand. This is perfect for users of Apple gadgets but the wireless charger can be used for qi Android devices.
