Legrand today introduced a new Radiant wall plate with a Qi-certified wireless charger compatible with the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.
The wall plate includes a double receptacle on the left side with a built-in USB-A port, and a wireless charging pad with a holder for smartphones on the right side, with an overall 3.1 amps of power for charging capabilities.
A small LED light at the base of the charger indicates the smartphone’s charging status, showing red while charging and green when charging is complete, but this feature isn’t compatible with iPhones.
Legrand describes the wall plate as the first product of its kind to be released, providing homeowners with a convenient way to charge their iPhone or other Qi-certified device in the kitchen, bedroom, or wherever it is installed.
For installation, the wall plate is designed to replace any standard, single-gang box using existing electrical wiring in a home.
The wall plate is available in White, Ivory, Light Almond, and Black at select retailers across the United States, including Lowe’s and Fry’s Electronics, for around $65 to $70, but prices vary. It’s also available in Canada.
