Few things are more nerve-wracking to me than the 10% battery alert when I’m nowhere near a charger. So this deal caught my eye: The portable Apple MagSafe Duo Charger — which fits in the palm of your hand and can charge your iPhone, Apple Watch, Airpods and more — is now on sale for $119.99. That’s $10 less than you can get it on Amazon or Apple right now. 

What we like about the deal: The Apple MagSafe Duo Charger charges a range of items including all iPhones starting with the iPhone 8 to current models; all Apple Watches; AirPods Pro and Airpods with Wireless Charging Case; as well as other Qi-certified devices — in other words, plenty of the devices that Apple users already own. It’s small (it can fit into the palm of your hand, and when folded, it easily fits in a pocket or purse) and the devices you want to charge simply lay flat on the charger to get powered up.

It also comes with a 3.3 foot 20W USB-C lightning cable. And we like that the price is lower than many competitors right now at $119.99, compared to $129.99 on Amazon and Apple.

Other things to consider: The charger does not come with a power adapter, but for many Apple users, those may be easy to come by. And of course, there are plenty of cheaper ways to charge your devices, though the portability and fast-charging of this one may be more appealing to some of you.

Bottom line: If you’re frequently on the go, you may find that this charger makes your life a little easier. But if you’re someone who remembers to charge your phone or Apple devices frequently (lucky you), there’s probably no need for this device.
