All iPhones since the iPhone 8, including all of the iPhone X and 11 models, are capable of wireless charging. This feature, while by no means a necessity, is certainly a convenience - with a wireless charging pad on your bedside table you simply put your iPhone down on it, letting you avoid searching for your lightning cable which has probably fallen to the floor.
I'm not a fan of iPhone cases, not until I finally broke a phone after going caseless since the iPhone 4s. After paying to repair my device I finally caved and purchased a screen protector. I didn't go full case because I hate bulky stuff in my pocket, and no matter how thin a case may be, it adds mass to your phone. I finally decided to give the Nomad Active Rugged Case a spin after purchasing a new iPhone 11. The phone is just too nice to risk damage and I wanted to keep my nice sea green casing free from scratches.
While the name might be long, Anker's PowerPort Atom III Slim charger is simplicity at its finest. The design is lightweight, compact, and foldable to ensure maximum portability. And once it's plugged in, this charger delivers a whopping 30 watts of fast charging power. We love the Anker Elite USB charger, but if you need USB-C compatibility, the PowerPort Atom III Slim is the way to go.
Powerstrips are great for expaning the amount of AC outlets in your house or office, but with so many different devices taking up space, it is difficult to have the right combination of ports to charge your iPhone, Apple Watch, FitBit, tablet, Nintendo Switch and so on. The Anker PowerPort Strip PD 2 mini is equipped with 2 outlets and 3 USB ports for powering a variety of different devices at once. It is great for expanding your charging options at home or for trips away from home such as vacations, cruises and in dorm rooms.
