Car accessories don’t come much smarter than the Zus.

One of the only times your phone gets a break is when you’re driving. So it only makes sense to recharge your battery while on the road. The Zus smart car charger offers dual USB ports that deliver power at blazing speeds. It also doubles as a Bluetooth beacon helping you track down your parked car, meaning you’ll never lose your vehicle in a parking lot again.

This German-designed device is super sleek, with a black titanium coating that is scratch-resistant. The two USB ports face away from each other, so the cords from your two devices don’t tangle. With a total combined output of 4.8 amps, you can simultaneously charge two tablets without slowdown. The charger works with the ignition on or off, and its internal cooling system keeps it from overheating.

Once you install the companion app on your phone, the Zus also works as a locator. It connects to your phone via low-energy Bluetooth to provide directions back to your car, wherever it may be. It is impressively accurate in doing so, and even gives you an on-screen estimate of how far you need to walk to reach it.

Normally priced at $50, you can grab the Zus for $29.99, with free shipping to the continental U.S. via the Daily Dot store. The price includes a 12-month manufacturer’s warranty, and features a big markdown of 40 percent off MSRP.
