After having ventured into the market for surfboards, Tesla has now launched a new product aimed at smartphones.

The portable charger has a 6,000mAh power bank, and supports 5W wireless charging and 7.5W wired charging if you need to charge a little faster.

According to Tesla's description of the device, "The Tesla Wireless Charger is a 6000mAh (22.2Wh) battery-powered inductive charging pad that features the same design language used in our energy products, like Powerwall". If you decide to use it as a wired charger, you'll get 7.5W.
