It’s hard to think of a time without smartphones. However, for all its advantages, smartphones can also be the reason for a number of accidents when in the car.

oneo USB-C to USB-C Data & Charge Cable
Owners of smartphones will know how important it is to invest in a spare charging cable. The wrong cable can generally slow down the charging speed of your device. So it’s important to choose the correct one. Whether you are looking for an inexpensive cable that’s cheap enough to misplace without being disappointed or a cable worthy enough to last everyday use, then we recommend the oneo USB-C to USB-C Data & Charge Cable.
This oneo USB-C to USB-C Data & Charge Cable will bring power to your phone while simultaneously charging your phone’s battery. This cable will allow you to rapidly sync and charge your Google Pixel 3 with USB 3.1 technology. The shape of the USB-C plug is the same size and shape regardless of which way you are holding it. Thus, this will stop you from accidentally plugging it in the wrong way round and will come in in handy if you’re needing to plug in your device in a hurry. Additionally, the reinforced plastic housing around both connector ends will add extra strength where cables commonly become worn.
A standout feature of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is that they can be charged wirelessly. So if you are planning on purchasing a phone with wireless charging capabilities that will set you back a fair few pounds, you might as well invest in a product that you can wirelessly charge it with!

Crystalusion Liquid Glass Protection Screen
Damaging the delicate screen on your phone sucks. So having a screen protector can keep the surface on your Google Pixel 3 pristine and stop any scratches from forming.
Crystalusion Liquid Glass is a futuristic and effective way of protecting your smartphone. Using nanotechnology, it provides a resistive layer that protects coated surfaces from dirt, oil, dust, abrasion and bacteria for up to 12 months. Rather than a solid layer of plastic, it is actually a liquid that you wipe onto your device. This then sets to form a protective layer that is approximately 500 times thinner than a human hair. As it’s a liquid there won’t be any annoying bubbles that form and you can apply it to the whole of your device for all-around protection.

You can also plug into a USB mains charger if you don’t have a computer USB port nearby.
Additionally, this dock has an adjustable USB-C (USB Type-C) connector that shifts from front to back, allowing you to fit your device perfectly. The Kidigi Desktop Charging Dock stands your USB-C compatible handset at a comfortable viewing angle.
