Rumors swirled that Sonos was working on smaller speakers, thanks to its acquisition of Mayht. And leaked images showed that Apple could be gearing up to release a dual-port 35-watt charger. There were a bunch of cool new gadgets that were officially announced, too.

You'll need to use a 30-watt wall adapter (which Nomad sells separately) for it charge at its fastest speeds. Available in either silver or glass.
