It’s a wireless charger, but it’s better than a wireless charger. Cell by Ampere works as a dock as well as a UV sterilization chamber for your belongings. It’s a weirdly relevant combination of features but believes you me, Cell does a great job of being multifunctional but still being sensible. Every feature and use-case is well thought out, making it just the most conveniently handy accessory to have on you. Here, let me explain.
It’s no secret that your glossy, shiny, expensive smartphone is one of the most germ-filled things currently in your pocket. It’s also no secret that your phone is one of the most useful gadgets you’ve got on your person, so that’s really a conflict of interest, isn’t it? Cell by Ampere comes with a collapsible design that houses 2 wireless charging coils on the top, and UV-C LEDs on the base. Place your phone on top, and it fast-charges without wires, however, collapse the silicon rim around the sides and the base becomes a UV chamber, allowing you to sterilize your phone, watch, earphones, keys, or any EDC in mere minutes. Designed to be handy, Cell can be used as a UV wand too, allowing you to sterilize larger areas (like your door-handles, keyboards, food delivery parcels) by just waving the UV light over them. One could argue that being germ-free is just as much of a benefit as a fully charged smartphone, and the Cell’s 2-in-1 nature helps cover both those areas.
Things get really interesting when you realize that there’s more to Cell’s functionality. Its foldable silicone design can be half-expanded at an angle too, allowing your charger to effectively become a dock that works in the landscape as well as portrait mode. Designed to allow you to use your phone while it’s getting juiced, the wireless charging surface comes with an anti-friction layer that holds your phone securely in place and stops charging if your phone loses alignment. A USB-C output on the side of the Cell lets you even further connect a secondary charger for your smartwatch, and the collapsible design makes this entire world of functionality just as slim and portable as your phone itself. Plus, the cherry on the cake? Cell’s own wire and adapter are made from anti-microbial materials too, so your belongings are always clean… but don’t take my word for it! Just ask the guys at Business Insider, Digital Trends, and CES who called the Cell the best smartphone accessory of 2020!
