While our smartphones, smartwatches and earbuds are essential to a tech-savvy lifestyle, they can create quite a bit of clutter when scattered about. Charging multiple devices can use up several outlets, and it can even be easy to lose small earbuds without a proper resting place.

One of the irritating things about many wireless chargers is that despite cutting out the bulkiness of a cord or clunky wall unit, they wind up being heavy, cumbersome or ineffective at charging. What’s the point of having a wireless charger if it can’t work the way you intended it to? Luckily, this Dual Magnetic Wireless Charger is powerful yet sleek enough to make the perfect companion to your Apple devices. And it’s especially useful if you grabbed the latest iPhone or use AirPods Pro.

AirPods are convenient for a number of reasons: They’re small, sleek and easy to move around with, making them perfect for everything from morning runs to important conference calls. But there is one problem with these nifty wireless earbuds. Because there’s no wired connection, they’ll need to be sufficiently charged at all times.

That’s what makes this 10,000mAh ChargeWorx power bank even more convenient than wireless earbuds. It can charge your smartphone and AirPods at the same time. Available in sizes for regular AirPods and AirPods Pro, this multitasking power bank can power you through outdoor adventures all summer long for the incredibly low price of $41.99.
