MacRumors Giveaway: Win a 45W 20,000mAh USB-C Power Bank for Charging MacBooks, iPhones, and iPads From Choetech

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Choetech to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a 20,000mAh USB-C Power Bank from Choetech, which is perfect for charging all of your Apple devices from MacBooks to iPhones to iPads.


Choetech's Power Bank is 45W, which means it can fast charge the iPad and iPhone, plus it is powerful enough to charge up the MacBook Air and 12-inch MacBook models as fast as their included chargers. It can also be used to charge the 13 and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, though they charges slower than they do with the standard USB-C power adapters that come with those machines.

The Power Bank is equipped with a USB-C port, a micro-USB port, and two USB-A ports, and Choetech says it is able to charge a 12-inch MacBook to full in an hour, a 13-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ to full in an hour and a half, and a ‌MacBook Pro‌ in 2.5 hours. It is also able to charge the ‌iPhone‌ to 50 percent in 30 minutes using a USB-C to Lightning cable.


The 20,000 mAh capacity is enough to charge a MacBook 1.5 times, a 13-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ one time, and a 16-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ to about 60 percent. According to Choetech, it will charge an iPhone 8 to full 6.5 times and an ‌iPhone 8‌ Plus 4.2 times. Using the 30W USB-C input, the Power Bank itself can be charged from empty to full in three and a half hours. It can also be charged using a micro-USB cable, but that's a good deal slower.


Up to three devices can be charged at one time using the USB-C port and the two USB-A ports, which provide 12W of power. The Power Bank ships with a 1.6-foot USB-C to USB-C cable.

Choetech says that the Power Bank is equipped with built-in over charging, over voltage, over temperature, over current, and short circuit protections, and it will automatically turn off if overloading occurs.


We have 10 of Choetech's Power Banks to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win our ‌giveaway‌, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Leather Folio or Sleeve for the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro From Woolnut

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Woolnut to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win either a Leather Folio or Leather Sleeve designed to fit the 13-inch MacBook Pro or MacBook Air.


Priced at 112.50 euros, the Leather Folio for Apple's 13-inch MacBook options is made from a soft, rich full-grain leather sourced from Scandinavia. As with all quality leather, over time, the Folio will develop a unique patina. Woolnut says that it sources REACH-approved leather that is chosen for its protective softness.


The minimalist Leather Folio from Woolnut is available in green, black, or cognac, and while Woolnut is a Swedish company, its products ship out worldwide.


Inside the Leather Folio, there is a soft 100 percent natural wool felt sourced from Germany that's designed to protect the laptop from minor drops and dings, plus there are also leather pockets inside to house necessities like an iPhone, passport, and credit cards.


The design allows the MacBook to be placed inside vertically, leaving the charging port at one of the sides accessible for charging purposes. A premium zipper along the side and the top of the Folio closes to protect the MacBook when traveling, and makes it easy to get to the MacBook when you need to use it. When not in use for travel purposes, the Leather Sleeve can be used as a pad underneath a MacBook.


Woolnut's Leather Sleeve for the ‌MacBook Air‌ and ‌MacBook Pro‌ is similar to the Leather Folio, but it features a simpler design with a single opening at the top and no zipper.


Priced at 72.50 euros, the Leather Sleeve can also be purchased in green, cognac, or black, and it uses the same high-quality leather as the Folio. Inside, there's a 100 percent natural gray wool felt that offers protection and padding, and the design is thin enough that it's ideal for slipping into a bag or backpack.


Three winners will receive a 13-inch Folio for the ‌MacBook Air‌ or ‌MacBook Pro‌, while two winners will receive a 13-inch Leather Sleeve also able to accommodate a 13-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ or ‌MacBook Air‌. Winners will be able to pick the Folio or Sleeve color of their choice.

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Arlo to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an Arlo Pro 2 Camera setup that includes two wire-free cameras and an audio doorbell.

Arlo makes a range of different home security cameras, but the Pro 2 Cameras are HomeKit-enabled and can be added to your HomeKit setup so that they can be viewed within the Home app.

The Arlo Pro 2 features 1080p HD resolution with a night vision feature that triggers in low light so you can see activity even in the dark. There's a 130 degree viewing angle so you can see most of what's happening in a room.


Two-way audio is included so you can listen to the camera's audio and talk to the person on the other end through your iPhone, and there's a useful 100+ decibel smart security siren that can be activated from anywhere.


Motion and sound detection are included so you can get notifications whenever the camera detects something unusual, and Arlo offers seven days of free cloud storage with upgrade options available. For those who prefer on-device storage, a USB drive can be connected to the base station.


Arlo Pro 2 cameras are wire-free and battery powered, which means they can be placed anywhere, but there is an option to plug them in to unlock 24/7 continuous video recording, three second look back to see what happens before an event triggers, and activity zones that limit where motion detection is used. You can use Arlo cameras indoors or outdoors as they have an IP65 water and dust resistance rating.


Arlo also sells the Audio Doorbell, which is meant to work in conjunction with the cameras. Whenever someone presses the doorbell, you'll receive a notification in the form of a call, and you can respond back right away. Visitors are also able to leave messages that you can listen to remotely through your ‌iPhone‌.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Adonit Note+ Stylus for iPad

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Adonit to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an Adonit Note+ stylus that works with the latest iPad and iPad Pro models.

Designed to be an alternative to the Apple Pencil, the Adonit Note+ is a feature rich stylus that offers much of the same functionality as the ‌Apple Pencil‌ but at a more affordable price point.


The MSRP on the Adonit site is $70, but you can get it on Amazon for just $60, which is $40 cheaper than the original ‌Apple Pencil‌ and $60 cheaper than the ‌Apple Pencil‌ 2.

Design wise, the Adonit Note+ is a little bit wider and shorter than both ‌Apple Pencil‌ models, and it looks like a traditional stylus, featuring the same sleek black design as earlier Adonit styluses.


Like the ‌Apple Pencil‌, the Adonit Note+ features low latency, palm rejection, and 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity, which allows line thickness to shift with pressure when writing or sketching on the ‌iPad‌.

Built-in tilt support allows the Note+ to be held against the screen at an angle for shading when sketching or drawing, and the tip of the stylus, which is replaceable, has been designed to feel like writing on paper.


As with the ‌Apple Pencil‌, the natural palm rejection feature works automatically in supported apps, so you can write or draw while resting your hand on the ‌iPad‌'s display. Adonit Note+ works with many third-party sketching/drawing apps, with a list available on the Adonit website.

It's worth noting that it doesn't work with all third-party apps, but it is compatible with Markup, Notes, and other Apple features supported by ‌Apple Pencil‌.


There are two programmable buttons on the Note+ at the top of the stylus, which can be customized with different actions such as an eraser or undo/redo functionality. There's no need to pair the Note+ to the ‌iPad‌ -- just press one of the buttons to turn it on and it works automatically.

The Note+ has a convenient USB-C port on the bottom, and a five minute charge of the stylus offers an hour of battery life, while a full charge provides 10 hours of battery life.


The Adonit Note+ is compatible with the third-generation 11-inch and 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ models, the third-generation ‌iPad‌ Air, the sixth and seventh-generation iPads, and the fifth-generation ‌iPad‌ mini. It will also work with future iPads that come out.

We have 10 of the Adonit Note+ to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win our ‌giveaway‌, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a 61W GaN USB-C Power Adapter and USB-C Cable From Choetech

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Choetech to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a 61W USB-C power adapter and accompanying USB-C cable for charging a Mac or an iPad Pro.

Choetech's new 61W Wall Charger uses gallium nitride technology, which allows it to be manufactured in a smaller casing than a standard power adapter. It's 50 percent smaller than the original 61W MacBook charger.


Priced at $35, the 61W power adapter is slim, portable, and perfect for use at home or travel thanks to the foldable prongs that tuck into the body of the accessory.


There's a single USB-C port on the charger that can be paired with a USB-C to USB-C cable or a USB-C to Lightning cable for charging up your Apple devices. 61W is ideal for the MacBook Air or 13-inch MacBook Pro, but it's also suitable for the more powerful 15 and 16-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ models when not doing system intensive tasks.

Choetech says that the charger is equipped with a built-in "smart identification chip" that's able to identify the voltage and current required by a device, providing the right amount of power. It can charge a 13-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ to full in two hours or a ‌MacBook Air‌ to full in 1.6 hours.


The power adapter features a design made from a fire retardant PC material with over-current, over-voltage, and short-circuit protection for safety purposes.

Along with the 61W GaN charger, Choetech also offers a $15 6-foot USB-C to USB-C cable that supports 100W high-speed charging for all USB-C devices.


The cable, which is sold in a set of two, features a braided design along with reinforcing at the ends to make sure it won't fray or degrade with use, and it also cuts down on tangling. Choetech says that the cable supports data transfer speeds of 480MB/s, and that it has been tested through 5,000 bends and 30,000 plugs and unplugs.


We have 61W GaN power adapter and USB-C cable sets for 10 MacRumors readers. To enter to win our ‌giveaway‌, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win Custom-Painted AirPods Pro From ColorWare

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with ColorWare to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win custom-painted AirPods Pro, available in dozens of colors.

For those unfamiliar with ColorWare, it's a company that's been around for a long time, offering custom paint jobs and unique skins for a range of electronic devices, from consoles to earbuds.


AirPods Pro can be ordered from ColorWare in custom colors for a fee of $389 for just the ‌AirPods Pro‌ or $439 for the ‌AirPods Pro‌ and the Wireless Charging Case. It's pricy, but it's the only way to get ‌AirPods Pro‌ in a color other than white.


There are solid and metallic colors, with gloss and matte finishes available. Traditional black, gold, and silver colors are options, but there are also bright shades in every color of the rainbow. If you want ‌AirPods Pro‌ in blue, yellow, orange, green, teal, deep purple, pink, or one of dozens of other colors, ColorWare is the best option. You can even get them painted to match Apple's iPhones.


The ‌AirPods Pro‌ can be custom painted in the same color as the case, or you can order each AirPod Pro and the case in all different colors, so there are quite a few available color combinations to choose from.


ColorWare has been offering custom painted devices since 1998 and has perfected the painting process. ColorWare uses a coating process that includes a primer, an application of a proprietary color formula, and an X2 liquid plastic coating that protects the color. All ColorWare work is guaranteed for 12 months, and 24 months with the purchase of an additional warranty.


Since ColorWare is using ‌AirPods Pro‌ from Apple and painting them, the full ‌AirPods Pro‌ functionality remains intact. There's an H1 chip for quick and easy pairing, silicone tips for a tight in-ear fit, Adaptive EQ, and Active Noise Cancellation.


‌AirPods Pro‌ are a bit hard to get right now, so custom ‌AirPods Pro‌ purchases made now will arrive in early March. For those who don't need ‌AirPods Pro‌ and prefer standard AirPods, ColorWare also colorizes ‌AirPods‌ and the ‌AirPods‌ case.


We have a set of custom painted ‌AirPods Pro‌ and Wireless Charging Case to give away, with the winner to choose the color and finish of their choice.

To enter to win our ‌giveaway‌, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes.
