After 4+ years and 4500+ content pieces that helped diverse companies grow, I followed my passion and made iGeeks Media my home. When not gushing over technology, you will find me immersed in a fictional world, either reading or creating one.
Mehak – thanks so much for simplifying the most important (to me) iPhone accessory: the charger. Right now, I have only the SE 2020 Apple product, so the array of more powerful tools will be important for my adult geek-children, but not for me. I can dream of the day…but for now I just want fast, stable, safe, smart and affordable charging. Looks like the least expensive recommendation will do fine, plus it has the advantage of working with different wall power strengths. My retirement day, according to SSA is 2/2/22, so travel will begin soon! Maybe no northern lights until 2023, but options are good! Never going to see them in Texas, I fear! Thank you again for this excellent article.
