Docomo, which is being acquired by parent Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corp. in a deal worth about 4.25 trillion yen ($40.7 billion), will offer 20 gigabytes of data for 2,980 yen for customers using 4G and 5G starting in March, the carrier said in a statement Thursday.

Zens has a new set of wireless chargers out called the Zens Modular. They are designed to fix the rigidity of most combination wireless chargers by letting users customize their own bespoke charging setup to suit their needs.

The Zens Modular system is divided into two halves: main stations and extensions. The main station (as the name implies) is the primary hub for your wireless charging setup and is the only thing that you’ll have to plug into the wall. Zens has three different main station options: the €99,99 / $121.16 Modular Dual Wireless Charger, which is a flat pad that can charge two devices at once at up to 15W each; the €69,99 / $84.81 Modular Stand Wireless Charger, a single charger that offers a stand form factor and can charge at 15W; and the €59,99 / $72.69 Modular Single Wireless Charger, a standard flat pad

Arlo’s hottest new wireless home camera system is $250 off for Cyber Monday

Arlo Camera Cyber Monday 2020 Deals

Arlo makes the best wire-free home security camera systems out there, hands down. That’s especially true of the company’s latest camera models. In addition to overall improvements to things like resolution, AI features, and battery life, they also feature built-in spotlights that light up when they record in the dark. Night vision is great, but super-bright LED spotlights are much better for two different reasons. First, the video quality is much clearer for obvious reasons. And second, anyone snooping around your home at night is likely to be scared away when a bright spotlight shines down on them.

As great as Arlo cameras are, however, there’s one thing that prevents many people from buying them: high price tags. Thankfully, Amazon is running the best deals of the year on Arlo’s newest cameras for Cyber Monday 2020.

Belkin TrueFreedom Pro wireless charger impressions

Belkin Wireless Charger

Mat Smith / Engadget

The TrueFreedom Pro is understated and stylish (if a phone charger can be stylish), with a black matte surface and chrome trim.  Nothing interrupts this surface, barring the port for powering it, although it’d be nice to have a USB-A or USB-C port to charge non-Qi compatible devices. A lot, if not most, of the bigger wireless chargers have them, and at $130, it feels like Belkin cheaped out here.

Most of Belkin’s rivals don’t have overlapping charging coils, however, and the best thing is how incredibly forgiving placement is on this thing. Not only does it work if your phone is slightly off-center, but it can also be charged on the far edges, so long as enough of the wireless charging components can interact. 

Alongside the familiar vibration or LED light-up when your gadgets start wirelessly charging, the mat has two LEDs along the edge
