If you’re still struggling to come up with gift ideas for the holidays, you can’t go wrong with mobile accessories. With much of our life driven by our devices, the gadgets that help run smartphones and tablets will be of use to almost anyone. Anker makes some of our favorite mobile accessories and Amazon has a striking one-day-only sale. up to 36% discount some of the company’s latest devices. A bunch of gadgets from the new MagGo lineup have been slashed, including the 5000 mAh gray magnetic battery, which is 25% off and up to $ 45, and the magnetic desktop charging station, which is also at 25 percent off and on sale for $ 75.
All of the accessories in the MagGo collection work with the latest iPhones with MagSafe, which means they snap into the back of the handsets to provide extra power, grip and more. The 5,000mAh battery will come in handy for those who are constantly on the go as it snaps into the back of the iPhone 13s and provides up to 17 hours of extra juice. It also has a built-in kickstand, so you can prop up your iPhone while it charges wirelessly. We also like that it doesn’t add much weight to the iPhone, measuring just 12.8mm thick, and you can use it with MagSafe-compatible phone cases as well.
If you know someone who could clean their nightstand a bit, Anker’s MagGo Desktop Charging Station might do the trick. It looks like the now-discontinued Amazon Echo Spot, but with a powerful magnetic pad instead of a smart display. The orb magnetically clings to your iPhone, positioning it at an angle that makes it easy to see and use the screen. On the back, it has a bunch of ports: three AC outlets, two USB-C ports, and two USB-A ports. This allows you to plug in almost any other gadget you have, like a tablet or your smartwatch, and it keeps all of your cables out of the way. Its small size and cute design make it a good choice as a tote charging device for your nightstand or home office desk.
While the sale mostly includes magnetic accessories, there are a few standard charging gadgets included as well. Anker’s new Nano Pro 20W USB-C charger is 25% off, which brings it down to $ 15, while a 3, 6 and 10 foot pack Powerline II USB-C to Lightning cables is 36% off, dropping it to just under $ 30. Depending on when you place your order, you can still get these accessories before Christmas.
