There is a price tag set for the accessory — US$99 — so if you do plan on getting this, be prepared to spend a bit.

More companies are starting to come out with their own version of a charger that will let you charge your iPhone and Apple Watch at the same time. AT&T is the latest to joining the game with their Power Drum 2-in-1 wireless charger.

AT&T filed the specifications and drawings for the Power Drum with the FCC. Found by the blog site ZNF, this new device sports AT&T’s own version of AirPower and, by the looks of it, this new product looks intruiging indeed.

The specification rundown for the AT&T Power Drum includes:

  • Made for: Apple Watch Series 3, Apple Watch Series 2, Apple Watch Series 1, Apple Watch (1st generation)
  • 2-in-1 portable charger, charges an Apple Watch and Qi-enabled wireless device simultaneously
  • 3000mAh capacity battery
  • Built-in magnetic charging module for Apple Watch
  • LED charge indicators
  • Input: Micro USB
  • Output: up to 10W on select wireless charging devices and up to 5W on Apple Watch

The interesting part of the Power Drum is that it only supports up to the third-generation Apple Watch. Of course, AT&T could have filed this well before the fourth-generation Apple Watch was out. Even so, there shouldn’t be any issue as to why the fourth-generation watch wouldn’t charge.

There is a price tag set for the accessory — US$99 — so if you do plan on getting this, be prepared to spend a bit. Unfortunately, there is no set date as to when this will be out for purchase.

What do you readers think about AT&T filing for a 2-in-1 wireless charger for iPhones and Apple Watches? When do you think Apple will come out with their AirPower docking station? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+Twitter, or Facebook.
