The never ending search of finding the perfect accessory for your smartphone. We’ve found some really cool accessories, and we share them with you each and every month. These range from cases, to screen protectors, to power banks, cables, and even some smart home items on occasion. Let’s take a look at this month’s list.

Aukey 36W Dual-Port USB Quick Charge 2.0 Turbo Wall Charger

This turbo wall charger from Aukey is a pretty unique one. It’s one of a handful that have two USB ports, where both are Quick Charge 2.0 compatible. Meaning that you are able to charge two devices at the same time, using Quick Charge 2.0. It won’t damage your smartphone or tablet either, if it’s not compatible with Quick Charge 2.0, as it is backwards compatible.

With USB Type-C starting to emerge as a standard for all types of gadgets, including smartphones, tablets, and laptops, we’re going to be in need of some cables. However, TechMatte has a great adapter here which works fantastic with existing Micro USB cables, allowing you to go ahead and pop this on your micro USB cable and use it as a regular USB Type-A to Type-C cable.

Instead of just getting an adapter, you could pick up a USB Type-C cable. This one from iOrange-E is a great one to pick up. It does meet the USB Type-C spec as well, so you won’t damage your Nexus 5X or 6P. It’s a 6.6-foot (or 2 meters for those outside the US) long cable, and is available in a few different colors.

These aren’t necessarily, brand new. But the Jaybird X2’s are a great pair of Bluetooth earbuds. They are great for taking to the gym as well as everyday use. The Jaybird X2’s feature around 8 hours of battery life, along with plenty of different sized ear tips for getting the most comfortable fit. These are definitely well worth the price.
