The well-known power accessories brand Aukey has launched the Graphite Pro 15W, a wireless charger that has won a 2020 iF Design Award for its futuristic form-factor. It integrates vents, a fan and "aviation-grade aluminum" to keep it cool during use. This device has been released alongside a slimline new power bank.

Aukey's Graphite Pro 15W wireless charging pad has an award-winning design that may fit well onto many consumer's desks or other settings. It has a refined circular form-factor that rises in a shallow cone to its charging platform, thus making it look like a particularly fancy cup-warmer.

The Graphite Pro 15W also has a silicone base-pad that prevents slipping. Inside, it is topped with a ventilation system and a fan in order to manage overheating during use. However, this is where the pad's forward-looking attributes end. Its charging rate is, as the name suggests, 15 watts (W), which may strike some as a little restricted compared to the 30W (or higher) standards currently out there.

This company has also just launched the Sprint Wireless 10000 power bank, which supports wired or non-wired charging. Again, while this is convenient, it turns out that these modes are set at 10W and 18W respectively. However, those who like the look of these new accessories can find them on Amazon, although they lack prices or live orders at present.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
