Deals: ARMOR-X Magnetic Charging Cable

Have you ever tripped over a short mobile device charging cord, or had someone trip over yours? It’s easy to do when outlets aren’t in a convenient locations, especially in public places like airports or your local coffee shop. What Apple did for laptops with the MagSafe, ARMOR-X is doing for all of your mobile devices. This cable has a magnetic connection right at the charge connector that stays in place during normal use, but can break away quickly if stress is applied, protecting both the cable’s charge connector and more importantly, your device.

Deals: Metallic Spring 3 ft MFi- Certified Lightning Cable

If you own an iOS device, then you have probably had to replace your Lightning Cables at some point. I have been able to push them to between two and three years of life with constant use, but I am also more careful than the average bear. My kids, on the other hand, could kill an Apple Lightning Cable in a month flat. Don’t even get me started on the gas station or dollar store cables. Those barely last a week in our house.

Now that I have a Nintendo Switch and I’ve started using fast charging, I’ve had to add USB-C to my cable arsenal, which already included plenty of Lightning and Micro USB.

Tips and Tricks: Lightning Not Striking?

I share this tip this week because, for the third year in a row, I find myself having the same problem. It seems that the Lightning Port of the iPhones 6, 6S and 7 all have a particular attraction to lint. Since I wear jeans to work most days and keep my phone in my front pocket, this lint build-up is inevitable and always seems to pop up right about now. However, it is easily remedied if you know what to look for.

Cool Things- The Power Packer


Now that I have recently backed a Kickstarter (The PaperLike iPad Pro screen protector) and an Indiegogo campaign (The Love Notes to Newton Documentary), I am now getting emails from both more than ever before. I typically don’t bother looking at them, but I noticed one recently for a product that looked like it was specifically designed for me. The Power Packer from Side by Side, which has already been fully funded and completed on Kickstarter and is also in the midst of a very successful Indiegogo run, is an accessory and cable organizer designed with the gadget-obsessed in mind.

Deals: Nomad Ultra Rugged Charging Cables


Some of the most popular items I have recommended from our Deals store are Lightning cables. If you are an iPhone and/or iPad user, it’s hard to have too many. Between the living room, the bedside table, the car, and maybe the office, it certainly pays to be covered and have a cable standing by at the ready. And don’t even get me started about kids wearing their cables out and coming to borrow yours. If you have children with iOS devices, you know what I’m talking about.

Deals: 10-Ft MFi-Certified Lightning Cable 3 Pack

Being a father of a family of five, all of whom are interested in tech and have one or more Apple devices, I can tell you that you can never have enough spare Lightning Cables. Sometimes I wonder if the dogs are getting hold of them, or maybe my kids just have a talent for dispatching them very quickly. Either way, between this and the occasional cable going MIA, we go through a bunch of them in this house.
