Apple Fanboy - Wireless Dock for iPhone + Apple Watch + AirPods by malencar Jan 6, 2018

Summary

This is a combination iPhone/ Apple Watch/ AirPods charger.

You'll also need a micro-USB cable with a slim connector. I bought these, also from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M0LK2SK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It uses a standard Apple Lightning cable for the AirPods charging part and a standard Apple Watch charging puck for the Apple Watch.

I highly recommend printing with the highest resolution available as I designed it with tight tolerances for a good finish.

The screw holes are small to allow for drilling/adapting to whatever screws you want to use. I am using flat-head M1 torx screws.

The photos here are of the one I made and I spent a lot of time on post-processing (sand-blasting with glass beads, sanding and painting).

I still haven't printed the cover shown in the renders, but the idea is that the cables can be tucked inside the cover and whole thing becomes travel-friendly.

I braided the 3 cables to make it tidier.

I will soon post a video with assembly instructions.

Enjoy!

Hey malencar, really a beautiful design, and the parts are amazing. Fun project too! Thank you very much!

this is fantastic! is the placement of the Qi coil ok to charge a Plus model iPhone?

Hey Malencar, I'm loving this design, and the previous version too. I know it's probably a big ask, but how difficult would it be for you to convert a version of this one, for non-wireless chargers? I know the other one's got it for lightning, but I just love the AirPod placement on this version.

Your Amazon link is not working for me, can you post a description for me to search on? "Wireless (Qi) DIY" has tons of different options.

Do you have a link where you bought the flat-head M1 torx screws? I tried looking for them on Amazon, but no luck.

Your 3D renders are absolutely stunning!!
I love how you braided those 3 cable out the back btw
