Festool wireless charger for mobile phones

Never worry about your phone dying again with the Festool charging block

Few things annoy us more than our phone dying in the middle of the workday. Whether you’re listening to music, making business calls or attending a trade show – everyone has had to deal with their phone’s battery life at one time or another. Festool has just released its mobile phone charger with an integrated wireless inductive charging station. This might be the coolest thing we’ve seen in a long time for charging your mobile devices.


The Festool mobile phone charger charges up to three smartphones or other mobile devices at the same time. It uses any Festool 18V battery (with the exception of the 3.1 Ah Ergo batteries) as its power source, so you can take it anywhere, at work or out.

Charge 3 devices at once!

You can also choose from three different charging options. The charger offers ports for USB-A and USB-C cords, as well as inductive wireless charging on the top for phones that support that feature. All of these options offer fast charging so that downtime is reduced.

The Festool mobile phone charger can charge a phone with a battery capacity of 3000 mAh up to eight times in combination with a Festool 5.2 Ah battery. (For reference, most iPhone batteries are at or below 3000 mAh, with the exception of the newer Pro Max models.)

This is Festool’s first venture on the mobile device charging market. The company used the same dimensions and design as its 3.1 Ah battery packs to ensure the chargers would be robust and durable. With this design you can easily store it in a Festool systainer when not in use. It also comes with a rubberized surface to ensure your phone is held securely during inductive charging.

Additional Features

  • Compatible with almost all Festool 18V battery packs
  • Completely wireless when using inductive charging
