The FCC filing and subsequent Qi Wireless Power Consortium documentation was first spotted by digital lifestyle blog ZNF. AT&T calls its accessory the Power Drum Wireless Charger & Apple Watch Power Bank.

As you can see in the above image, the Power Drum integrates an Apple Watch charger on the front. Further, the top serves as a Qi charging pad for your iPhone. The Qi charger supports output of up to 10W, though the iPhone is limited to 7.5W.

Features include:

  • 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

While it’s true that the documentation doesn’t include the Apple Watch Series 4 as a supported device, there’s no reason to believe that the device won’t work with the Series 4 wearable. It may simply mean AT&T intended to release this accessory earlier in the year, before the Series 4 debuted.

The documentation indicates the Power Drum will carry a retail price of $99.99 if and when when it becomes available.
