1 MOS pack plugged in

I'm pretty much a minimalist, grateful for pockets so I don't have to carry a bag every day. But for the last month, I've been using the MOS Charging Backpack.

I have been obsessed with wireless charging ever since I got my Galaxy S6 Edge+ phone.  Cutting myself loose from charging cables is a wonderfully freeing experience, and I honestly think that wireless charging is going to be the future and all sorts of surfaces around the house, restaurants, and the office will be wireless [...]

The Smart Connector is the closest Apple has come to wireless charging for a mobile device (I'm not counting the [...]
