PNY Portable Rechargeable Battery for iPhone ($8.99, usually $19.99)
If you happen to be a medium to heavy user of your Apple iPhone, then the chances are that you’ve already considered purchasing a case or device that introduces additional battery. Apple may make fantastic devices, but the company hasn’t mastered the art of producing batteries that last longer than a day yet. This portable little Lightning-enabled PNY product offers a 2,200mAh battery that should be enough to provide a full charge to a single Apple device.

Smartphone-Controllable Irrigation Controller – Refurb ($94.99, usually $234.30)
When we think about home automation and connected products, we automatically think about lights, smart thermostats, and devices that control electronics in the home. What we don’t often consider are those specific connected pieces of kit that are designed to bring intelligence to the garden or areas outside of the house. The IRO irrigation controller can connect to your home’s Wi-Fi to use the power of the internet to adjust a garden’s watering schedule based on weather, seasonality, zone-type, and regional characteristics. It is also smartphone-controllable and “Integrates with NEST, Wink, Control4, IFTTT and other top tier home automation systems for expanded functionality.”

It’s Mac and Windows compatible, offers a decent 64GB of capacity, looks good and won’t break the bank.

Doom for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 ($29.99, usually $59.99)
