According to reputable charging experts ChargeLab, though, the AirPower mat is alive and well - and now entering mass production, finally. Apple did say that the wireless charging pad would launch in 2018, but it didn't happen.

That's based on a tip from unnamed sources working in the Apple supply chain. "Luxshare Precision is also the maker of Apple AirPods and USB-C cables".
After multiple delays and development issues, Hong Kong website ChargerLab has revealed (via MacRumors) that manufacturer Luxshare Precision, the company now in charge of making AirPods and Apple's USB-C cables, has finally kicked off AirPower production.
