AED 175 | BUY ON | noon

Pros

  • Soft, rubber finish
  • Strong magnet
  • Wireless charging is automatic
  • Stable stand works with vertical or horizontal orientation

Cons

  • Slow recharge rate (three hours)

The Anker 622 Magnetic Battery is a great option for iPhone users, who’d like to charge on the go, and want a little more power than their phone’s battery case. With a 5,000mAh battery, this power bank is also Qi-certified for wireless charging. Its built-in, fold-out stand allows you to prop up your phone vertically or horizontally, giving you hands-free convenience. And when your smartphone is running out of juice, just attach it to the back of your phone magnetically. Reviewers say they have even successfully used it with MagSafe-friendly phone covers, so that their devices are protected from falls or scrapes. While this battery pack has been made to adapt to recent iPhone models, you can use it with Android phones, as well, if you have a compatible case or stick a magnetic MagSafe adapter to the back of your phone.

Warranty: The product comes with a 24-month warranty from the manufacturer.

2. Best Apple Charger: Apple MagSafe Charger for iPhone 14, 13 and 12

AED 90 | BUY ON | noon

Pros

  • Convenient, portable design
  • Qi-compatible and works with various accessories
  • Strong, reliable magnet

Cons

  • Charges slower than the lightning cable

Like most Apple products, the MagSafe Charger is minimalistic, slim and simple in design, and very easy to use. Just snap it onto the back of your iPhone and it will immediately begin to recharge your device. At a rate of 15W, it will fully charge your phone in an hour, but reviewers say fast-charging lightning cables do the job in half the time. Still, the convenience of this small, portable device cannot be underestimated. Reviewers attest to it being one of the best iPhone accessories to own, right now.

Warranty: This product comes with 1-year warranty.

AED 50 | BUY ON | noon

Pros

  • Suitable for wide variety of devices
  • Extremely fast charging
  • Energy efficient

Cons

  • Includes only one USB Type-C charging port
  • No interchangeable plug clips for international travel

If you’re looking for game-changing Samsung phone accessories, this is one to note. Boasting 45W of power, this travel adapter supports latest USB Power Delivery specifications, so it’s future-proof. Use its one-metre USB Type-C to USB Type-C cable, which is included in the box, to charge not just any Android smartphone, but also tablets, and even small laptops. Reviewers appreciate its fast charging capabilities, with some saying their phones reached 50% charge in just 20 minutes.

AED 399 | BUY ON | noon

Pros

  • Extremely precise and accurate
  • Feels great in the hand
  • Charges when attached to iPad

Cons

  • Expensive

If you're using your iPad to make and receive calls, there's one gadget you shouldn't miss. Apple’s 2nd Generation Digital Pencil is so good, some reviewers said it convinced them to buy the iPad Pro or iPad Air just so they could use it. Though it’s quite a steep purchase (for a stylus), artists and design professionals will find that it’s a top-notch tool that’s well worth the price. The Pencil has one flat side and feels as natural as holding a regular pencil. Unlike its predecessor, which would charge in the iPad’s lightning port, and stick out at an awkward, 90-degree angle, this Pencil has a magnetic charging and attachment scheme. It sticks effortlessly to the edge of the iPad, and charges while it’s there. Reviewers are amazed at its responsiveness, comfort, and high-quality look and feel. For creative people, it’s definitely an investment worth considering.

If the AirTag is more than 30 feet from your phone, its technology leverages encrypted Bluetooth connections and other people’s iPhones, to tell you its location. Although you can’t use it with just any lanyard or keyring, there are now plenty of loop holders and keychains in the market that are customised to hold the AirTag. Simple, yet shockingly effective, it’s a must-have, especially when travelling.

The charger is powerful, with a 20W output, which means it offers fast charging capabilities. It comes with a hidden infrared sensor and electric adjustable grip, which automatically opens and closes when it senses your phone approaching. It’s smart, fast, reliable and sturdy, making it a winner in our eyes. Check out other car chargers on noon.

AED 1097 | BUY ON | noon

Pros

  • Excellent typing experience
  • Sturdy
  • Smooth, responsive trackpad
  • Slim and portable design
  • Can be used with iPhones

Cons

  • Expensive
  • No function row

Turn your iPad Pro into a laptop, with the Apple Magic Keyboard. This beautifully designed keyboard is a delight to type on, reviewers say, and it makes working on the iPad Pro much more convenient. The keys are backlit, and its brightness adjusts automatically, based on ambient lighting conditions. The trackpad is smooth and accurate, but reviewers say the Magic Keyboard’s best part is the way it’s designed to angle your iPad Pro upwards, from the back of the keyboard, so that it looks like the screen is floating. In true Apple fashion, the Magic Keyboard is elegant and works fabulously – well worth buying, if you already own an iPad Pro. But the best part? It's compatible with iPhones too! All you have to do is connect to it via Bluetooth, according to Apple's website.

Bonus: Buy with 0% installments, starting from Dh92, with select banks.
