10ft Kevlar Fiber Lightning Cable for iPhone and iPad ($10.00 with promo code, usually $39.99)
Anyone who owns a modern iPhone or iPad will more than likely attest to the fact that Apple’s official Lightning cables are anything but fit for purpose. The very design of them leaves the plastic sheath vulnerable, meaning more often than not, they typically don’t last a year.
This one isn’t an ordinary like-for-like third-party replacement, but rather a 10ft long, Kevlar Fiber flexible solution that is purported to be five times stronger and more durable than the Apple offering. And a lot cheaper.
Make sure you use the following promo code at checkout to grab the cable for just $10: 8F5G63E3.

This title will immerse you in a dark fantasy world that can be best described as “ruined”, with an onus on allowing the player to roam and experience everything that the environment has to offer. There are breathtaking experiences, cutting-edge sword combat, and even access to a unique online system.

AUKEY Optic Lens Set for Smartphones ($14.99 with promo code, usually $19.99)
Sometimes the camera experience offered on a smartphone just isn’t up to standard.

This relatively tiny financial outlay will get you a 3-in-1 kit, comprising of a wide angle, macro and fish eye lens that connect directly to a smartphone.

Pokémon Z-Ring Set ($29.99)
Let’s be honest, as soon as you read Pokémon, you were interested. You’ve probably been spending most of your free time wandering the local area catching Pokémon using Pokémon Go, so why not enhance that experience by wearing the Pokémon Z-Ring? In all honesty, this is probably better suited to a child than a grown adult, but it does come with lights, sounds and vibration that simulate the Pokémon battle experience. It’s also directly compatible with the latest Pokémon titles for Nintendo 3DS Family Systems.
Ok, yes, there’s no discount to be had on this one, but this ring set is currently available for pre-ordering right now, and we’re sure the cult followers will want to put their foot through that door before anyone else.
