Apple now supports wireless charging with the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, but it isn’t selling its own charging pad yet. Instead, Apple Stores offer charging pads that support the Qi standard from Belkin and Mophie, each priced at $59.99.

The company did preview AirPower which it will start selling sometime next year, but the official release date and price are still unknown. Now a Polish retailer has published an online listing for AirPower which could give us a clue about how much we’ll have to pay for the special charging pad.

Polish Retailer Listing Leaks AirPower Could Be Priced at $199

Unlike existing Qi charging pads, AirPower will support up to three compatible devices for simultaneous wireless charging thanks to technology developed by Apple. AirPower will only work with iPhone 8 / 8 Plus / X, Apple Watch Series 3, and an upcoming version of the AirPods charging case, but Apple says it will help the Qi standard adopt multi-device charging support in the future.

Considering AirPower has special Apple technology and is essentially three wireless chargers in one, we can probably expect to pay a hefty price, right? ThinkApple points out that a Polish retailer X-Com has a new online listing for AirPower which is priced at 999 PLN. That converts to about $270, but ThinkApple notes that products on Apple’s online store in Poland that are priced at 999 PLN go for around $199 in the US online store.

Could this mean AirPower will actually be sold for $199 when it launches next year? My take is that it’s likely a placeholder listing from the Polish retailer who likely wouldn’t have inside knowledge of how Apple plans to price its unreleased product, but the roughly $200 price point wouldn’t be totally surprising.
