very year, we search the halls of the ConsumerElectronics Show in Las Vegas for the best newtechnology for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
This year, we saw all kinds of amazing tech
(driverless cars! Smart fridges!) and sometimes
puzzling products (a robot that brings you toilet paper? A
hands-free carry-on that follows you through the airport?). The
following awards go to the coolest and most useful iOS gear
we discovered on the show floor.

stood out among a
sea of charging sta-
tions at CES because
it lets you mix and
match charging mod-
ules for the iPhone,
Apple Watch, and
AirPods in order to
create the perfect
station for your gear. Another advantage is that you can
eliminate the chaos of multiple cables by charging through a
single AC power cable.

THE COOLEST IPHONE TECH
a portable car
battery jumper. This 44400 m Wh, compact, portable car
jumper by Mophie can easily jump a full-size car or SUV.
But it’s no regular car jumper! It can also charge iPhones or
other mobile devices via its two USB-A ports or Qi wireless
charging pad on top. It also comes with a 115V AC power
outlet to charge a laptop and an LED flashlight. All of this is
enough to make the Powerstation Go a standout product. It is
also surprisingly stylish for such a utilitarian item, with a sleek
design and attractive color options.
