It's the start of a new decade, and if you're not wireless charging your phone already, it's time to seriously consider changing your ways and adding 'start wireless charging' to your New Year's to-do list. More and more phones are Qi-enabled these days, and it's likely you own one already. You can stop plugging your phone in every time you need to power up and switch to something like Anker's PowerPort 5 Wireless Charging Pad (opens in new tab) instead. Today it's on sale for only $7.99 at Amazon when you enter promo code DMAKA258 during checkout. That saves you $10 off its price otherwise and brings this wireless charging pad lower than it's ever reached without a code before.
