The perfect portable charger

Whichever Apple Watch charger you choose, always check to be sure that it's MFi-certified. For a product to earn MFi certification, it must pass compliance and safety tests. The company must also pay Apple royalties to put this certification on their products.

If you have the funds, we'd recommend the Apple MagSafe Duo Charger because it's fast, reliable, and portable. Be sure to pick up a portable adapter as well.
