I’ve had this tech organizer for two years and it’s held up super well. Along with the top-notch materials and build quality, Native Union’s Stow Organizer includes a mix of pockets, elastic straps, a waterproof zipper, and more.
Fine details include an Apple Pencil holder, an interior slim zippered pocket for small items, and an easy-to-access open exterior pocket.
In addition to everything I regularly pack (shown above), I can also fit a 27,000 mAh portable battery in this organizer when needed.
You can usually pick up the Native Union Stow Organizer for ~$50.
This is a clever iPhone-focused accessory from Mophie. Along with a 10,000 mAh battery and the MagSafe compatibility for iPhone 12 and 13 (or any smartphone with the included Snap ring adapter) the Snap+ Powerstation Stand has a built-in kickstand.
But Mophie included one more handy feature, an integrated 1/4-20 standard tripod socket to easily use your iPhone and charge up in a variety of scenarios.
It can be tough to find a multi-device power bank that includes an integrated Apple Watch charger from a trusted brand.
At $99, the Satechi Quatro is a versatile 10,000 mAh workhorse that can charge iPhone, AirPods, Apple Watch, and more simultaneously.
Along with the Qi wireless pad and built-in Apple Watch charger, you’ve got up to 18W output with the USB-C port and 12W with the USB-A port.
Coming in a slick design with a metal frame, the Satechi Quatro is a fantastic accessory to gift that will get lots of use.
Satechi launched a new line of GaN USB-C chargers this year and my favorite is the super-compact 66W 3-port model.
It’s perfect for juicing up a MacBook, iPad, and iPhone at the same time or any other mix of devices. And it comes in a package not much bigger than an AirPods Pro case.
Even though cloud storage has become the norm, it’s still useful to have a physical flash drive.
Going above and beyond normal flash drives, the SanDisk Luxe features both USB-C and Lightning in one device so it’s seamless to use between iPhone, iPad, Mac, and even PC.
