Speaking of the charger AirPower, whose shadow is yet to be seen on the shelves of the world, finally what is expected is happening: his first copies xing-ling are starting to pop up around the world.

As the video above shows, an unidentified company from Shenzhen, China, has already managed to develop its solution to create a very convincing copy of Ma's upcoming accessory, carrying an iPhone X and an Apple Watch on the same surface. The bastard twin was obviously named "Mini AirPower" (even because it appears to be slightly smaller than the original version) and sources say it is costing about R $ 50 in China.

Disregarding the danger of carrying your R $ 7,000 smartphone in a non-certified accessory, a beautiful bargain, considering the real price of the AirPower. N?
