Tesla Motors has launched a new Qi wireless charger that works with iPhones and Android devices. The new Tesla Wireless Charger was listed on Tesla’s website yesterday, but it was mysteriously pulled from the site soon afterwards.

The Tesla Wireless Charger features a sleek design and is available in white and black color options. Tesla said in the product description that the new device was built using the “same design language” that’s being used for the company’s other energy products like the Powerwall, MacRumors has learned. Inside, the wireless charger is packing a 6,000mAh battery, which is convenient for when users are always on the go.

Users will be able to wirelessly charge their compatible smartphones by simply placing their handset on top of the device. The Tesla Wireless Charger also functions like a regular power bank since it has built-in USB cable. The Tesla Wireless Charger comes with a USB Type-C cable for charging Android phones that have USB-C ports.

There’s also a USB-A port that allows users to fast charge their devices using a USB cable. The Wireless Charger also has a built-in USB-A cable, but it can only be used for charging the 6,000 mAh battery that’s inside the Tesla device itself.

The Tesla Wireless Charger is capable of wirelessly charging devices with only 5W of output. This is unfortunately very slow and may not be enough for most iPhone users. The iPhone 8 , iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X all support 7.5W wireless charging, which was made possibly through a software update that was released by Apple with iOS 11.2 back in December, as pointed out by AppleInsider.

Tesla is charging $65 for the new accessory, which is rather an expensive price tag for such a slow wireless charger. Perhaps Tesla aims to attract customers who are willing to pay a premium price for a product that carries the company’s brand.

Interestigly, the Tesla Wireless Charger was quickly removed from Tesla’s website for some unknown reason. Going directly to the URL of the product will simply redirect customers to Tesla’s main e-commerce site. There’s no word yet on when Tesla is planning to officially release its wireless charger.

For those who want a faster wireless charging solution, however, they can get the $49.99 RAVPower HyperAir battery pack, which is capable of 10W wireless charging and is packing a beefier 10,400 mAh battery. Although RAVPower’s charger is capable of outputting 10W wireless charging, iPhones will only be able to take advantage of 7.5W output.
