For wirelessly charging an iPhone, Apple Watch and Airpods, most of the options on the market are some variant of this form factor:
The designers at accessories brand Anker, however, have pushed themselves into thinking outside of the box (paradoxically, by making a box) with their 3-in-1 Cube with MagSafe charger:
