The best accessories for charging your Fitbit and Pixel
The Google Pixel is a top smartphone famous for its high-quality build and versatility, while Fitbits are excellent devices for tracking health and fitness metrics. However, to get the most out of your Fitbit, it needs to be synced with your phone, and both devices should have plenty of battery life. When your phone and Fitbit are running low, individually charging each one is fine, but some accessories let you juice them up simultaneously.
How to charge your phone and smartwatch at the same time
A charging station offers a way to charge your phone, smartwatch and wireless earbuds simultaneously. They’re often built to use your phone while charging and have rear or side cradles to charge other devices. Most charging stations are powerful enough to charge all of your devices simultaneously without any of them slow charging.
Since most Google phones support wireless charging, you can fix your phone on a charging station pad to charge it and dock your Fitbit on the dedicated cradle to juice it up simultaneously.
Versatile wall plugs
A standard phone-charging wall plug typically has only one USB port, but there are some with multiple USB ports. Wall plugs don’t have a dedicated charging cradle for a Fitbit or wireless earbuds, but they let you connect several charging cables to charge your devices simultaneously.
What to look for in a charging station and wall plug
Phone case support
Removing your phone’s case every time it needs to be charged can be frustrating, so it’s essential to ensure that your charging station can charge your phone even with a phone case. However, even charging docks that let you charge your phone with a case have limitations. Generally, a charging station will work with a phone case with a thickness of no more than 5 millimeters.
Many charging stations and wall plugs deliver higher wattage than standard wall plugs and can charge your Pixel and Fitbit much faster. It’s highly convenient if you don’t require a full charge and want to charge your devices quickly to get a few hours of use out of them.
Leaving your devices connected to a power source for an extended period can cause over-surging and overheating damage to the battery. Many charging stations and wall plugs have auto-off functions that cut off the power supply to connected devices once fully charged, which helps reduce the risk of overheating.
