Car chargers are essential for keeping your phone powered up during busy days. They’re a boring, necessary accessory that get the job done, but usually don’t spice up the drive. Not Anker’s Roav Viva. This car charger is compatible with the Alexa smart assistant found in the heart of Amazon Echo, and you can get it right now for $40 on Amazon, almost 20 percent off its average price. It’s never been cheaper on the retail site.

The Anker Roav Viva’s Alexa compatibility allows you to use the skills normally associated with Echo, so you can get directions, listen to news and weather updates, stream music, make calls, order pizza, control the connected devices in your home, and more in your car—all hands-free. The charger connects to your phone over Bluetooth to enable voice control, but its microphones can be easily muted whenever you don’t want Alexa listening in. And, of course, it comes with two USB ports to charge your devices.

Though we haven’t tried this charger ourselves, it has a rating of 4 stars out of 5 on Amazon over 250 reviews, which is pretty solid for a car charger, especially one with such a unique concept. If you’re looking to use Alexa in a more stationary environment, check out our guide to discover which Echo is right for you.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
