With the announcement of a premium Qi charger made from both metal and leather, alongside the announcement of an AirPods case that features a similar design, all of your friends will be asking you where you got your latest accessories.

If you’re tired of people mistaking your white floss case for theirs (OK, but you can’t tell me it doesn’t look like that), this is a way to make your AirPods stand out. The X-Doria Defense Trek AirPods case offers a machined aluminum build with a strong polycarbonate outer shell, your wireless earbuds will be protected from both drops and scratches.

A carabiner and loop are both built-in and provided, allowing you to safely and easily attach your AirPods to bags, belt loops, and many other places to help keep you from misplacing your earbuds.

There’s a small hole in the front, allowing the AirPods Wireless Charging Case light to shine through, should you have Apple’s latest release.

I’ve got a plethora of plastic chargers lying around. They’re budget-friendly, easy to use, and really, plastic does the job…right? Well, sure it does, but it doesn’t do it elegantly. If you want a product that you’re proud to leave on the counter and have friends ask you “What’s that?”, then X-Doria’s Defense Vertical Qi Charger is perfect for you. It’s built with both aluminum and leather, giving you a sturdy design that’ll last a lifetime. It offers up to 10W fast wireless charging to top your device off in a jiffy. There’s a soft white LED to indicate charge status, but not too bright that it’ll wake you if you choose to put this charger on your nightstand.

The X-Doria Defense Vertical Qi Charger is also powered over USB-C with QC 3.0, making it a great option for those who are going all-in on the Type-C lifestyle.

Both products are available from Amazon and X-Doria directly. The X-Doria Defense Trek AirPods case will set you back $29.95 shipped. The X-Doria Defense Vertical Charger will run you $59.99 shipped, but it does include the QC 3.0 adapter, making it an all-in-one purchase.
