There are reasons why we haven’t seen many attempts at an Apple Watch band that discreetly houses a battery for on-the-wrist charging.

For one, Apple discourages them in its “Made for Apple Watch” program guidelines. Chargers can get hot and burn the skin, or worse, cause fire or electric shock if water is present. Such a band could also interfere with the watch’s sensors.

A company called Togvu believes it has solved those problems with a band that debuted on Kickstarter today called the Batfree Power Strap.

CES 2019 bugA tray is a stylish way to serve coffee or tea. Now there’s one able to charge your iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods at the same time.

Gaze Lab didn’t neglect style as it set out to create the Gaze Tray, a one-stop charging solution that looks good on any table or dresser. It also lends space to jewelry or the items you take out of your pockets at the end of a long day.

With offices in Seoul and San Francisco, Gaze Lab is showing off its catch-all charging tray at CES in Las Vegas this week as it raises productions funds on Indiegogo.
