71EeqzVm HL._SL1500_In the mobile tech accessory world, AUKEY is a name that comes up fairly often.

They make many of the standard accessories many of us rely on every day, but they also make some unique products I haven't seen elsewhere.

I'm primarily focusing on those unique products, because they fill different niches than accessory makers I've covered before.

Whether you're looking for a way to take better iPhone photos, or want to keep your tech and non-tech products alive simultaneously, you'll find what you're looking for here.

A magnetic car mount for your phone


You should never hold onto your phone while driving. 

It's a major safety risk, especially if you're taking your eyes off the road to check for directions or read a text. 

Instead, pick up a mount for your car that keeps your phone at eye level. You'll be able to glance over for directions (although if you enable your GPS app's voice feature, you won't need to) without losing as much focus.

This car mount attaches to the air vent of your car, which gives you plenty of placement options without taking up too much space.

A suction cup dashboard mount


If you'd prefer to keep your car's air vents free from tech accessories, you can opt to pick up this dashboard car mount instead. It performs the same functions as the phone mount I just recommended but can be attached to any flat surface by a suction cup on its base.

A high-capacity portable battery


Those looking for the highest-capacity battery on the market should pick up AUKEY's largest portable battery pack. 

At 30,000mAh, this battery is capable of recharging an iPhone 7 10 times, which is more than I can say about any other battery I've seen. 

You can use this battery to charge two devices simultaneously, and charge the battery itself via MicroUSB or a Lightning cable. It's pricier and heavier than the batteries I usually recommend, but it's also significantly more powerful.
