    "These have honestly changed my life. The pack comes with two three-foot cables and three cables longer than the regular length. My favourite thing IN THE WORLD is the ten-foot cable. The freedom is ridiculous. I can be at the other edge of my bed and charge my phone! Also, other-third party cables I've tried have charged my phone very slowly, but this one charges perfectly. And the cables withstood my teething kittens (who have destroyed five MacBook chargers, countless iPhone cables, and two pairs of earphones)." —Imaan Sheikh (read their full review of the nylon braided charging cords; they're #5 on the list).

    "It's great to be able to pick my phone up while I'm lying in bed without using another hand to disconnect a cable. It's also small enough that the phone takes up most of the pad, which is good for aesthetics. My only caveat: you have to make sure your phone is centered on the pad and the light is on, otherwise it won't charge. (This happened to me last night, but that might be a phone issue vs. a charger issue.) Not all phones will work with wireless charging, so make sure you check compatible phones before purchasing." —Kyle Richmond (read their full review of the wireless Anker charger; it's #8 on the list)
