10 Coolest iPhone Gadgets & Accessories
Travel Lamp Phone Light
Everyone has that crazy moment where you need a light so you pull out your iPhone and turn on flashlight mode. While that’s great for times when you need the direct light a flashlight provides, it doesn’t work in every situation. This little gadget is a cute solution to that problem.
This lamp-shaped, silicone gizmo slides over your iPhone like a rubber band. When the lamp is placed over your flashlight, the light is diffused and cast like lamplight. It’s ingenious, fun, and lightweight. Available in a classic lamp style or a traditional lantern design that’s perfect for campouts. Makes a great stocking stuffer for that brother in law who is impossible to shop for.
iPhones and iPads use Lightning to USB cables to charge and sometimes sync data with your computer (depending on how you have yours set up). Apple bundles a standard 3 foot (1 meter) white Lightning USB cable with all their iPhone and iPad devices but for many people that just isn’t enough. You can buy additional iPhone or iPad charging cables, whether you want an extra lightning cable for your car or bedside table, a long lightning cable for charging your phone on the couch, or just an additional fashionable iPhone charging cable to throw in your backpack that won’t be confused with other people’s plain old white iPhone charging cords.
All of the lightning cables in this article will work for all current iPhone models including iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xr, iPhone SE, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro max. You can also use them with iPads and iPad Pros.
