Nonda ZUS

  • Available at: nonda.co
  • Price: $29.99 (U.S.)

Just because it was designed in Germany shouldn't mean anything, but maybe it does. The ZUS by nonda is one tough little phone charger that can handle high-speed charging, high temperatures – and get you back to the car tout suite.

The sleek black charger takes up no space, slipping into the port to plug in two devices. The charging chip senses the device and adjusts to charge twice as fast as the rest of the in-car chargers. The literature says it will charge two iPad Air 2s at the same time in less than four hours while the competition will take eight. Why you went on a road trip with two drained iPads is the real question.

When the ZUS is plugged in, it softly lights the surrounding area and lets you know your device is charging. Built tough, it handles high temperatures that all your devices (and the sun) generate. An impressive added feature is the Smart Car Locator. By downloading the app, you stay connected to the car. The app notifies how much time is left on a meter and then swiftly leads you back using either a cool little compass or map.
