Charging Tips

Base One Max features an official MFi MagSafe Charger. To begin charging, simply center your device on the puck and allow it to snap into optimal charging position. Base One Max works with iPhone 8 and later as well any Qi enabled wireless charging device, but MagSafe magnetic alignment is an added benefit for iPhone 12 and later.

When placing your Apple Watch on your Base One Max, push the bottom of the watch in so that the watch is parallel with the puck rather than at an angle and slightly separated from the charger. When positioned correctly, you won't be able to see a gap between your Apple Watch and the charging puck. Additionally, a little lateral wiggle will help you locate the watch in the X plane. You'll feel a subtle snap when the watch is nestled into correct charging position.

Base One Max does not include a 30W USB-C Adapter. Available for purchase separately here.

We decided not to include a 30W USB-C Power Adapter with Base One Max. Producing fewer chargers means less of an environmental impact. This wasn’t an easy decision, but we think it was the right one. Learn more.
