3-in-1 Wireless Device Chargers
When you have so many devices to keep fully charged, it can sometimes be a hassle. Mix in the fact that AirPods, Apple Watches, and iPhones can be wirelessly charged, and you have even more options to think about. Why not keep all of your devices charged using a single device? This wireless charging dock offers a spot for your Apple Watch, AirPods, and iPhone, with only one cord attached to the charger base. Here’s a more affordable, wired option.
While the Apple Watch is certainly a tough device designed to take on the challenges of an active life, there’s no harm in reinforcing the device with some additional barriers to long-term damage. The Defense Bumper mixes a metallic frame with tempered glass, allowing for access while keeping it protected from scratch and fall damage while also keeping it stylish.
Originally a simple concept pitched on Kickstarter, this iPhone accessory is now sold in almost every store, used by seniors, teens and professionals alike. The simple device acts as a mount to prop up your device on a table as well as a simple grip to make sure you don’t drop your device while walking. PopSockets come in a variety of forms, from your favorite Hogwarts house to an expression of pro-LGBT support. Get them here.
Or perhaps you want to accessorize your AirPods? Some companies have created outer cases for your AirPods charging case, taking on the appearance of marble or a simple pastel colors. These cases allow you to hook up the charging case to your keys, backpack, belt, or other accessory. Perfect for those on-the-go and who want to keep that charging case close.
A study in 2018 revealed that American smartphone users are constantly cracking their screens, with an estimated 5,761 screens broke every hour. That’s two screens a second. So why not minimize that risk by buying a glass screen protector? This protector uses ion technologies to protect the screen from shattering, while the reinforced edges help protect it from scratches. While it might seem silly at first, a screen protector would help protect users from paying far more to replace their screen in the coming months and years. Get it here.
Whether you have the dual cameras of the iPhone 11 or the triple cameras of iPhone 11 Pro, taking care of those lenses will be necessary for those who desire pristine photography and a long-lasting iPhone. Get yourself a lens cover that will protect the camera lens from chipping and scratching under constant use. Get one here.
Don’t laugh –– for many iPhone owners, their jobs require them to have easy access to their device, especially if accessing pockets or a purse isn’t easy. The Defender Series Holster is a solid choice. Not only does it offer a simple layer of protection for an iPhone, but the clip allows the user to keep it hooked on their belt or bag. Get it here.
Hate dust and fingerprints on your screen? Perhaps you should order a screen cleaning kit. These typically come with the proper fluid to clean the product thoroughly, a microfiber cloth, and an in-cap storage system that lets you keep everything together in one attractive container. Perfect for travel or keeping your device clean and fingerprint-free. Get it here.
Apple AirPods Accessories
When Apple released AirPods to the public, it was a significant change for the company, completely removing wires from the listening experience. However, that decision inevitably leads to the complication of losing AirPods. With Americans spending an estimated 500 million on replacement AirPod buds in 2019, there is even more reason to invest in tools that will help you keep them safe and charged. One such option would be Insignia’s accessory kit, which provides several silicon cases to fit each user’s ears, as well as hooks/cords that the user can wear to keep their devices on their heads. Hopefully, it will save users from having to buy $69 replacement AirPods. (Or start using something like this.)
