    Zagg is debuting several products at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this year, including a Mobile Charging Station designed as an at home and on-the-go solution for charging an Apple Watch and an iPhone.

    The Mobile Charging Station is designed to accommodate and charge an iPhone and an Apple Watch at the same time while also wrangling the necessary cables. It includes a pop-up base for charging the Apple Watch, which works with both open and closed loop bands.

    Inside the Mobile Charging Station, there's an area for winding up excess cable to provide a neat, organized solution for travel. The Mobile Charging Station has a built-in 5,000mAh battery inside, so it's also able to charge devices even when not connected to a power source. While a Lightning cable is included, customers will need to supply their own Apple Watch charger.

    Zagg's other CES offerings include the $100 Flex Arc wearable earbuds and speaker and the $130 Now Cam. The Flex Arc is worn around the neck like a collar and has retractable earbuds. An external microphone and speaker allow music or calls to be heard without using the earbuds.

    The iPhone-connected Now Cam is a rugged, waterproof action camera for capturing photos and videos, similar to a GoPro. Designed for "social video," it can take 720p video or standard photos, and it has a 6-second capture and share feature.

    Zagg's Mobile Charging Station will be available for purchase from the Zagg website at the end of January. It is priced at $79.99.

    The design of the charging station is ok, but the design of those other abominations is appalling. Reminds me of late 90s attempts at making everything look futuristic with unnecessary bits of plastic molding that made it look fast and techno-fabulous. Also—that headset has speakers on it? Please no. I don't enjoy listening to random stranger's weird music. And who wants to buy a 720p camera at any price in 2016?

    This thing is 5x the size it needs to be. Just license the puck and build it in.
