Whether by choice or by virtue of our needs, we surround ourselves with more gadgets. And while it’s fun and useful, it’s a big problem to keep a lot of juiced up. In the world where we are often stuck in a mess of chargers and cables, Pitaka Air Omni offers to charge all your devices at once. Read through when we test whether it is “The Ultimate Charging Machine For Apple Family” or not?
Pitaka Air Omni: A one-stop solution for all your devices
Pitaka offers a compact and smart charging station to ease all the charging strings. And although it is slightly larger than the average wireless charger for multiple devices, all that space works to our advantage.
After all, there is one 6-in-1 charging station which can quickly charge iPhone, AirPods, Apple Watch, iPad, Nintendo Switch or Android devices quickly. This is how:
Wireless charging plate: Not just one, the Air Omni has two designated areas for wireless charging. There you can drop the Qi-compatible smartphones and earbuds to lubricate them.
Apple Certified Watch Module: Thanks to a nice popup module, you can place your watch in a flat or upright position. This mechanism is smooth, silent, fast and somehow extremely satisfying to my technical heart.
Lightning to Type C Switch: Another unique mechanism that threw me over. With just the push of a button, you can switch between the Lightning or Type-C connectors. So it also acts as a convenient docking station for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
USB connectors: On the right side is a USB-A and USB-C port to accommodate wired charging. And with that, Air Omni smartly manages to replace your fast charging blocks as well.
Secret drawer: Oh yes! you read that right, Pitaka has also incorporated a small safe to hide your small treasures, such as SIM cards. In addition, the drawer is even equipped with an LED!
Magnetic holder: Looks like the designers have thought of it all! What if you want to place a device in landscape orientation? Just stick the magnetic holder and enjoy the benefits of a practical table stand.
Pitaka Air Omni actually offers a one-stop solution for almost all your charging needs. But there’s more on the plate …

Is it the ultimate charger?
Absolutely! Pitaka Air Omni fulfills flawless promises. To test, I packed it with Apple Watch, AirPods Pro, iPhone and iPad Pro. All my devices were successful and at the same time quickly charged.
And the best part is that I did not have to wait for the plug to be released or struggled with cables. Furthermore, it kind of worked as a smart organizer and helped me set up my desk.
You could call this nitpicking, but I just wish the drawer could be a little deeper. So it can at least fit a charging cable or the magnetic holder that comes in the package. Other than the little wishful thinking, there is no complaint or error that we experienced while using the Air Omni.
A big thumbs up to Pitaka to manage to pack convenience and power in a well-designed, compact and sophisticated form factor.
