There’s something satisfying about finding a tech gadget that performs more than one function in one small and sleek package. This may be the perfect way to describe this device from Rush Charge.

While the compact gadget looks like a standard portable wireless phone charger, it actually folds into a phone stand. This simple function makes it perfect for hands-free use.

Cleverly named The Hinge, this device adds both a simplistic and innovative edge to an otherwise basic device that we all own and use.

Thanks to its lightning, USB-C and Micro-USB output ports, so many devices and phone models can benefit from this piece of tech. You can choose one of these three connection types while making your purchase.

To use The Hinge, simply place your phone on the dock for charging. To take advantage of the standing feature, simply push the back panel all the way back until it’s lying flat. Your phone will then sit upright for easy hands-free use.

Built with three locking angles to give you the perfect viewing perspective, The Hinge is fully wireless, can charge and be charged simultaneously and has an automatic power save mode.

Plus, it’s available in five colors: black, blue, gold, silver and purple.

In addition to the brand’s native website, The Hinge is also available on QVC and shoppers can’t stop raving about it. In fact, one shopper even dubbed it the “best product I’ve used.”

“The rush charge is the best portable charger I’ve had,” the shopper continued. “It’s so easy to use and small enough to fit in my pocket.”

Highlighting its standing feature, another shopper added that this device “allows me to place [my phone] on my desk and see incoming text messages without the hassle.”

Shoppers also pointed out that the wireless device allows them to get a full phone charge in under 45 minutes. One shopper noted, however, that she wishes she didn’t have to remove her phone case to charge each time — a point that shoppers with larger phones also mentioned.

This same shopper, however, maintained that The Hinge has become her go-to charging device and remains “in [her] car at all times.”
