This power bank can charge one device without wires -- and two more with.


Did Santa bring you a new phone for Christmas? Many new models support wireless charging, meaning you can just set the phone down on a pad or stand and presto, er, chargo.

When you travel, though, you'll still have to deal with power cords, right? Maybe not: For a limited time, and while supplies last Aoputek (via Amazon) has the Dodocool 10,000-mAh power bank with Qi wireless charging for $21.89 with promo code EBSSQ4IX. It normally runs $30.

This isn't quite as cool as the similar Jarv power bank I shared last year, because you have to recharge the Dodocool via conventional means (Micro-USB or USB-C; it has inputs for both). The Jarv could recharge via a Qi pad.

But here you get an LCD (instead of just LED) status display and two traditional USB outputs for charging non-Qi devices -- simultaneously, if need be. If your phone supports Qi, it makes sense to get a mobile charger that does as well. And for $22 out the door, what's not to like?
