Photography enthusiasts, rejoice! You can geek out about your passion while charging your phone with this Power Lens Qi Charging Pad.

This short-barreled camera lens won’t help you take better pictures. It will, however, charge your phone up to 1.5 times faster than a standard charger — thanks to its 10W charging capabilities. All you have to do is set your Qi-compatible phone on top of the lens, listen for the satisfying shutter sound, and be on your way.

Besides limiting the cable clutter on your desk, it also has a pretty sleek aesthetic. It looks practically identical to a real 40mm pancake lens. Just don’t confuse the fit-for-photography-enthusiasts wireless charging pad with your actual camera lens! That would be disastrous.

Why settle for an ordinary charger, when you could get one with some flair? You can grab the Power Lens Qi Charging Pad for just $29.99 from the Daily Dot Store. That’s reduced from the usual price of $39.99.
