  • Tesla was briefly selling its own wireless smartphone charger on its online store, but the devices have already sold out.
  • The $65 gadget supported both wireless and wired charging, and could also be used a portable charging pack.

Continuing to branch out from just car sales, Tesla recently introduced a new addition to its ‘lifestyle’ collection — a portable, wireless smartphone charger. But less than a day after debuting, the $65 device is no longer available to order on the company’s store website, as they quickly sold out.

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. It’s the latest addition to Tesla’s branded smartphone chargers, which Tesla says are “powered by the same cell found in many of the batteries of our vehicles.”

As The Verge noted, there are cheaper, non-Tesla options available that have larger power banks and faster charging capabilities — but Tesla chargers sell because of the Tesla brand, not their wattage. 

Here are some of the specs from Tesla’s smartphone charger: 

  • 5W wireless charging
  • 7W wired charging 
  • USB-A or USB-C charging capability 
  • 21 hours additional talk time or 18 hours additional web browsing
  • An internal battery that can be charged with a USB-A cable from any USB port. 

A Tesla rep confirmed that the chargers sold out, but could not comment on how many units were sold or whether they’ll go back on sale.
