Apple has updated the description of its upcoming $129 MagSafe Duo charger revealing that the wireless charging pad requires a $49 power adapter to reach top charging speeds.

The MagSafe Duo Charger conveniently charges your compatible iPhone, Apple Watch, Wireless Charging Case for AirPods, and other Qi-certified devices. Just place your devices on the charger and a steady, efficient charge begins on contact. The charger folds together neatly so you can easily take it with you wherever you go.

Recommended:
● 20W USB-C Power Adapter (sold separately) for faster wireless charging up to 11W
● 27W or higher USB-C Power Adapter (sold separately) for faster wireless charging up to 14W

Already a very costly charger, the MagSafe Duo requires a 20W USB-C power adapter ($19) to reach 11W charging speeds. If you want to get up to 14W charging speeds (not 15W), you will need to purchase a 27W or higher USB-C power adapter. Apple's closest charger is the 30W USB-C power adapter that retails for $49.

In total that brings the cost of the MagSafe Duo charger to $178.

I still don’t see the sense in these wireless chargers. Are people that lazy that they can’t plug a wire into their phone to charge it? It’s not like you can be using your phone a few feet away and have it charge. If I gotta lay the phone on the charger I might as well just be plugging it in.

You would think they could throw in a power adapter when a person is buying a charger that’s already 5X more expensive than it’s competitors.
