OneCable Sync and Charge

RH Numbers

Those who travel with an entire bag of tangled cables, or collection of adaptor heads, often waste far too much precious holiday time when battery-drained devices come calling. The importance of a minimalist kit can't be stressed enough and as a regular sufferer of cable clutter myself, any answers are warmly welcomed.

This OneCable Sync and Charge cord surely looks the part, with an Apple connector, micro USB and mini USB on one side, connected to a regular USB on the other. A retractable cable mechanism keeps everything neat and tidy too. Voila: one string to rule them all. And it's only a tenner.

Proporta TurboCharger 7000

RH Numbers

Battery depletion is one of the most common issues among smartphone users but while the market is inundated with relevant juice-boosting fixes, surfing for the right one can quickly become a confusion.

The capacities of these packs are always on the rise, but a device's battery needs are too, so make sure you opt for something sizeable enough to replenish your kit sufficiently.

Regardless of the tech, Proporta's TurboCharger 7000 should charge several times from full through its impressive 7000mAh capacity. It comes with a range of interchangeable connector heads too, as well as a retractable cable for tangle-free storage.

While the higher capacity means you'll fork out a much higher sum, there are a few goodies thrown in too, including a USB to vehicle ciggie-lighter adaptor, and various AC plug socket converters.
