Best Apple Watch docks and charging accessories for travel

Zens Apple Watch Charger ($40)

Zens Apple Watch Charger

If portability is your prime concern, then look no further. The Zens charger is a cute, pocket-sized cube that packs a 1,300mAh battery inside and can wirelessly charge your Apple Watch. It should refill the battery at least twice and there’s a four LED array to show remaining power, just like most power banks. You can recharge the Zens cube with any Micro USB cable and charger, and it is Apple MFi certified. It comes in gray or white.


BLOC Wireless Dock ($80)

You can now charge your Apple Watch on the go with this wireless dock by Boostcase, but you do need to insert your own magnetic charging cable. The BLOC dock can charge your Apple Watch up to four times. Its aluminum build (also available in bamboo) complements the Apple Watch nicely. There’s a battery with a capacity of 2,000mAh inside and it can be detached and used to charge any iOS devices, as long as you have a charging cable.


Elevation Lab BatteryPro ($100)

The BatteryPro is an MFi-certified magnetic charger for your Apple Watch. It has a very large 8,000mAh battery inside that can provide several charges for your Apple Watch or other iOS devices. The charger has a strap for the watch to hold it securely in place, so it’s easy to charge it inside a bag without problems. You get a Micro USB cable to charge the BatteryPro in the box, but you’ll need your own cables to charge your Apple Watch or phone. The USB port can also put out 2.4A to charge your iPhone rapidly.

Trident Valet ($9)

Trident Valet

It may look like a display case, but you can use the Valet to charge up your Apple Watch and your iPhone simultaneously. Flip the transparent lid open, and you’ll find the iPhone slots in neatly. There’s a built-in 2,600mAh battery in the Valet, making it a perfect travel companion. It can be charged up using a standard USB to Micro USB cable and there’s one supplied, though you will have to use your own Lightning and Watch cables. It comes in a textured black or white finish, and there are five green LEDs on the front to show remaining battery power.


Nomad Pod ($20)

Nomad Pod

This portable pod is designed to slip into your pocket or bag. It measures 75mm by 25mm and weighs around 80g. It offers up to four full charges for your Apple Watch, thanks to a 1,800mAh lithium polymer battery. There’s a power button with a four LED display to give you an idea of remaining power, and a Micro USB port on the side to charge the Pod. Pop the top off, and you’ll find a standard USB Type-A port, into which you can plug your Apple Watch charging cable. You can wrap the cable inside before putting the top back on, to keep it tidy and out of the way. It comes in gray or silver.


Proper WatchKeeper Dock and Case ($60)

Proper WatchKeeper Dock and Case

If you want a good protective case for your Apple Watch, then look no further. This oblong case has an EVA foam tray covered in soft microfiber. Your charging cable will fit in underneath, out of sight, and your watch sits in the opening. The case also works like a dock, and there’s a small opening in the side where you can feed the cable through and plug it into the wall. The hinged top can be left open if you want to use it as a dock. The exterior is leather and you can choose a black or tan finish. It’s lightweight, and it measures 9 x 2.2 x 1 inches.


Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable ($30)

Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable

It’s dull, but it’s likely to be a necessity because you only get one charging cable in the box with your new Apple Watch. It’s typically expensive at $40 for the two-meter version. You can save $10 if you opt for a one-meter cable instead. They both come with Apple’s MagSafe technology, which makes it easy to attach the cable to the back of your watch, as magnets will pull them together to hold the cable in place.
