You might not think much could be done to improve the humble mouse pad, but do a quick Google search, and you'll find options that are ultra-thin, pure metal, or even engineered with RGB lights. 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. Simply place your phone directly on the pad, and it'll start to charge while you play. It boasts built-in over-voltage, under-voltage, surge, and short-circuit protection, and its generous 11" x 9" size gives you plenty of space to maneuver without knocking your phone from the pad.
The SwissTek Wireless Charging Mouse Pad normally retails for $99.99, but it's available in the Boing Boing store for $21.
