While the utility of a light-up mouse pad can be debated, the SwissTek Wireless Charging Mouse Pad is a sensible pick for any gamer looking to keep their phone juiced while they play; and it's on sale today for $21.
Pulling double duty as a mouse pad and charging solution, this 2-in-1 pad comes packed with a Qi-enabled wireless charger for your smartphone.

The SwissTek Wireless Charging Mouse Pad normally retails for $99.99, but it's available in the Boing Boing store for $21.
