  • Anker Astro E5 15000mAh battery pack

    Keep your gadgets charged up when out and about with this awesome battery pack. It features a 15,000 mAh rechargeable battery and two USB ports, one outputting 1A and another outputting 2A, enough to charge up both an iPhone and iPad (or whatever else you might need to charge).

    All that in a pack small enough to slip into a pocket.

  • Steward/Stand stainless steel wallet

    Want a wallet that can not only block RFID signals (thus keeping your RFID enabled credit cards & IDs secure) but is also stylish and heard-wearing? Look no further than the Steward/Stand range. Here you will find wallets for both ladies and gents in a variety of styles.

    Link | Price: Varies.

  • ThruNite T10 115 lumen Cree XP-G LED flashlight

    The ThruNite T10 is a lot of light packed into a small space. The Cree XP-G LED is rated to last over 50,000 hours and can output anything from 0.09 lumens (which is very dim, described as "firefly" mode) to 115 lumens (which is dazzlingly bright).

    A single AA battery can give you light for anything from 147 hours to 1.5 hours, depending on the brightness you choose.

    Awesome light. I've carried one in my pocket for over a year and it's never failed me.
