USB battery packs are must-own accessories in this day and age, but they're kind of...boring. Luckily, we've found two deals today on chargers that have a few tricks under their sleeves.
First off, this 5,000mAh charger has a Qi wireless charging pad built right in. That means you can charge your compatible phone anywhere in the world without carrying a single wire. The idea is so obvious in hindsight that I'm surprised we haven't seen more like it. Think about it; you're most likely to need one of these things when you're out and about, so one less wire to carry is a real convenience. Naturally, there's also a USB port to charge a second phone simultaneously, and you can even keep it plugged in at home to use as a standard Qi charging pad.

Next up is one of our old favorites: The RAVPower FileHub. This little gadget is actually three devices in one:
- Travel Router: Turn any ethernet jack you find into a Wi-Fi hotspot, which can still come in handy at certain hotels and conventions.
- 6,000mAh USB Battery Pack: Keep your phone and tablet charged during a long day away from any power outlets.
- File Hub: Transfer files and wirelessly stream content from an microSD card, hard drive, or flash drive to all of your devices. Imagine loading a cheap microSD card up with movies for a long trip, instead of, say, buying an expensive iPad with more local storage.
If you travel frequently, there's no doubt you'll make great use of this, and today's price is the lowest we've ever seen by a good margin. [ RAVPower FileHub, $32 with code 7HOPCXWG]
