It just slips unobtrusively on to your key chain, being on hand when needed.

Zus is a unique little device that does a lot for its price tag. It’s primarily a high-speed car charger, great for anyone that needs a fast charger for their smartphone or tablet in a vehicle. But it also doubles as a tracking device, and using its companion smartphone app, will let you find wherever you left your car.

It uses GPS location, so there’s no need for WiFi and 3G/4G connectivity, and it’s extremely easy to use thanks to the simple interface in the Zus app. The charger normally costs $50, but right now you can pick one up for 40% off the list price, which is only $29. Not a bad price considering you’ll never forget where you parked again.

If you bought a OnePlus Type-C cable for use on a third-party device you’re entitled to a refund

If you cast your mind back a week, you may recall that Google employee Benson Leung published a post over on his official G+ page disclosing that the OnePlus’ official Type-C cable is not safe for use with Android-powered smartphones and tablets as it doesn’t comply to the operating system’s USB compatibility specifications.

OnePlus has now issued a statement revealing that the cable is only safe for use with the OnePlus 2 and may cause damage to third-party devices. As a result, the Chinese company is offering all customers who purchased a wire independently for use on a non-OnePlus handset a full refund.
