The Zus smart car charger is no typical device.

Sure, it powers your phone on the road–as is expected of a charger. But it also tracks down your car via GPS.

While you are behind the wheel, Zus is in charge mode. You can plug in two USB devices at once, and it optimizes the flow of power to each one. This saves energy and allows for lightning-fast charge speeds–up to twice the rate of other chargers.

Once you reach your destination, Zus then becomes a homing beacon. It stays connected to your phone via Bluetooth, and works with your companion app to help track your car. You’ll get on-screen directions back to your vehicle, along with an estimate of distance.

The USB ports light up in the dark, making the Zus easy to use, even at night. Its internal cooling system maintains a smooth operation on scorching summer days. It even works with the ignition switched off.

The Zus usually retails at $49.99, but is just $29.99 via the Daily Dot store. The deal features a big 40 percent markdown, plus free U.S. shipping and a 12-month manufacturer’s warranty. Buy it here.
