It will cost $79.99 when it goes on sale.

There is the new JBL SoundBoost 2, which now comes in three colors, has a fabric covering, and is now splash-resistant. It will work alongside a brand new app from JBL, which will allow owners to directly adjust the sound coming from the speaker. It will retail for $79.99.


The Motorola TurboPower Pack features quick charge support and a 3490mAh battery that charges the phone at 15W speeds. There is a USB Type-C port on the Mod itself which can be used to charge it to 50 percent battery life in just 20 minutes. Customers will get all of that for $79.99 when it becomes available.

And finally, there’s the Moto Style Case with Wireless Charging, which also supports quick charging at 10W speeds. As the name suggests, it means Moto Z2 Play owners can charge their phone wirelessly. It will be available in a variety of colors for $39.99.
