Apple has just launched its new set of iPhones, and like the past few years, everyone is feeling pressured to "upgrade" and buy the new iPhone and Apple Watch regardless of barely any improvements. However, this is 2022, and reuse-reduce is the game of the hour! It's time to consider options that help you upgrade your tech without having to throw away your perfectly capable phones.
Meet ESR, the company that has been innovating the accessories market since 2009. Used by Microsoft as the official Microsoft Surface brand partner, licensed by Disney to create official mobile accessories for the company, and winning Red Dot awards on several of its innovative designs, ESR continues to make breakthrough advancements. This year, however, it's focusing entirely on Apple products.
Modern tech, clean and intuitive design - ESR levels up your tech with its award-winning patents and designs
ESR keeps the consumer at the center of its design process - to give you what you asked for! The pathbreaking accessory maker has released 8 new products, including the clutter-freeing HaloLock™ 3-in-1 MagSafe Charger, Mini Kickstand Wireless Power Bank, Classic Kickstand Case with HaloLock™, and Rebound Hybrid Case 360. So, what exactly is this HaloLock, you might be wondering.
ESR's HaloLock is an entire ecosystem of innovative magnetic accessories that were originally inspired by Apple's MagSafe magnetic charging system but takes its capabilities further.
"From the world’s first MagSafe-compatible car chargers to a collection of mounts and chargers for your home and office, ESR HaloLock brings power-in-a-snap convenience to the places you want it most."
The team has now paired HaloLock with CryoBoost™ Fast Charging, a phone cooling fan and heat-dissipating tech that works together to keep your phone cool and charging speed at its maximum even when you’re using it.
The must-buy: ESR HaloLock™ 3-in-1 Wireless Charger with CryoBoost™
This is the kind of product that makes our geek heart go wild! Charging has never been a fun part of the whole technology scene, and it's even worse when you are using your phone while charging it.

With CryoBoost, ESR has ensured heating while charging becomes a thing of the past!
The CryoBoost™ technology makes this charger the fastest MagSafe charger for Apple products. The design also makes sure you can charge 3 devices at the same time, including your phone, AirPods, and Apple Watch. Like the mini Kickstand Power Bank, this charger also gets the "Power in a Snap" experience and HaloLock's strong magnetic touch, making the 3-in-1 Wireless Charger a must-have product. Top features include:
