Satechi today announced a new wireless charger for Qi-enabled Android devices and iPhones.

Officially dubbed the Aluminum Type-C PD & QC Wireless Charger, this charger’s biggest selling point is indicated right there in the name, as it supports fast charging through USB-C. That alone puts it head and shoulders above a lot of wireless charging pads out there, many of which are still using micro USB.

Satechi says that its Aluminum charger is capable of charging iPhones at up to 7.5W and Android phones up to 10W.

That is, of course, assuming that the device you’re carrying around in your pocket supports those charging speeds.

The charger also features temperature protection and foreign object detection, so if it detects overheating or an out-of-place metal object, it’ll automatically cut off power to your phone.

Those are all handy features to have in a wireless charger, and it helps that it looks pretty good as well, with a base that comes in either silver or space gray and a silicone pad on top.
