• The Apple Watch has the opposite problem as Apple’s iPhones: It comes with a cable that’s way too long instead of way too short.
  • It can also be annoying to have yet another cable you need to remember to pack when you travel.
  • The MQOUNY Portable Apple Watch Charger solves the problem — it’s a wonderfully compact portable Apple Watch charger that’s on sale right now for just $18.99.

There are some products that have such a meaningful impact on your routine that once you start using them, you really can’t imagine life without them. It doesn’t have to be something big or even something expensive. It just has to be something that meets a need and makes your life easier, and such is the case with the MQOUNY Portable Apple Watch Charger.

This awesome little gadget — which, by the way, is on sale right now on Amazon for just $18.99 — is a real lifesaver. There are so many times when I forget to take my Apple Watch off at night to charge it on my bed-side table. Since it barely lasts for one day on a charge, getting through a second day without recharging it is impossible. That’s why I now always carry the MQOUNY portable charger with me in my bag.

It has a wireless charging disc just like the regular Apple Watch charger, plus it has a USB plug right on the side so you can connect it to any laptop or USB wall adapter to charge. But the best part is you don’t even need to plug it in to charge your Apple watch because it has a built-in battery that lasts for two or three full Apple Watch charges before it needs to be recharged itself!

All you have to do to appreciate how great it is to carry this little portable charger on you is to read the reviews on Amazon — like this one:

I always forget to charge my Apple Watch for some reason and when I get to work, I end up with a dead watch halfway through my day. This has come in so extremely handy to keep my watch charged on the days that it’s dying. And I don’t have to travel with my cable watch charger. It is also very compact and the cap for the USB is attached so I’ll never lose it!

Or this one:

Finally a portable Apple Watch Charger! I’ve been so sick of using the cord and a power bank. This combines the two. The Apple Watch is about 250 Mah and this boasts a 1000mah so theoretically 4 charges which should get you a total of one week’s use if you charge every other day. It can be plugged in and used as a standard charger or for traveling. It has an indicator light as well as a tether to the cap so it won’t get lost. Great little addition!

And this one:

I love this charger. So much I bought one for my boss for his birthday last week. It’s so small and lightweight I keep it in my purse. I’ll wake up many mornings and discover my watch didn’t charge. I can’t stand a day without my watch working. Especially because I track my exercise and it’s important to me. This little gadget is great. And a great gift. What a fun find.

Plus, this one:

I love having this charger, it has definitely come in handy. It’s nice and compact for a great travel charger. I usually carry it around my pocket around because it is nice and small and my watch seems to always die because I forget to charge it. I had my watch a year before I got this charger and this charger seems like it should have been a must have! I would definitely recommend this!

There are plenty more where those came from, but you get the idea. It’s so awesome to be able to completely stop worrying about forgetting to charge your Apple Watch. It’s also awesome to not have to worry about traveling with Apple’s crazy-long charging cable. For just $18.99, you really can’t go wrong — it’s a game-changer! Of note, there are a bunch of other great Apple Watch accessories on sale today on Amazon, so definitely check them out.
