Review: This Compact Apple Watch Charger Goes Anywhere

My whole family has Apple Watches so I'm always looking out for the best way to charge them. On the go, the Keychain Charging Dock for Apple Watch ($38.99) that Choetech sent me to review is my favorite. It's small, essentially palm-sized, but it houses 900 mAh of extra battery life and includes its own Apple Watch magnetic charging mechanism. The charger itself charges via microUSB so that's another cable to remember to bring.

Again, the charger is compact and lightweight and even includes an integrated keychain, so you could attach it to a backpack or your car keys. There are four LED lights to indicate battery level and it supports charge-through capabilities so you can charge the unit while charging your Apple Watch.

If you travel a lot and want one device that can also charge your iPhone, Choetec offers an upgraded charger with a USB-port as well as an Apple Watch magnetic charging pad built-in.
