Apple-certified MFi Lightning cables: 2-Pack 1.3-ft $10, 3-ft $7, 6-ft $10, 10-ft $10, more

It helps to have a range of Lightning cables in you’re charging arsenal. The standard 3-ft length is great for everyday charging, but sometimes you need something a bit shorter, longer, or tougher.

Short 1.3-ft cables can help minimize desktop clutter and reduce needed travel space, while super-long 6-ft and even 10-ft options make it easy to stay charged when wall outlets are out of reach. But no matter the type, you always need to make sure the cable is Apple-certified MFi, that way you know you’re getting a safe and dependable connection.

Here’s some current deals to help round out your Lightning cable collection:


When considering these prices, just keep in mind Apple charges $19 for a 3-ft Lightning cable.

Built-in Wireless-N with MIMO enables you to save and access files on any iOS or Android device. What’s more, it can serve up to 4 HD video streams to mobile devices at a time without the need for a live internet connection.

Add Ethernet and more USB 3.0 ports to your MacBook for $16 Prime shipped, plus some bonus power bank deals


We can’t have it all. Apple’s ultra-thin MacBooks are off-the-charts beautiful (ya, I’m a fanboy), but that thinness comes with sacrifices in connectivity options. None of Apple’s current laptops (aside from the ancient 13-inch regular MacBook Pro) have an Ethernet port, while every model only gets 2 USB ports.

aukey-ethernet-usb-hub-sizeThis Aukey 3-Port USB 3 Hub with 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet usually sells for at least $19.99 on Amazon. Use coupon code CBH15PRO to drop your final price down to $15.99 Prime shipped.

Slip it into your travel bag or keep it on your office shelf and you’ll be able to get a hardwired internet connection or connect more USB devices to your Mac within seconds. Since it needs a USB port on your MacBook to connect, it’ll only add an extra 2 USB 3.0 ports to your workflow even though it has 3 ports. It’s rated 4.8 out of 5 stars and includes an 18-month warranty.

If you’re lucky enough to have a new 12-inch MacBook you’ll need a USB-C adapter to use this hub.

Multi-magazine subs from $4/yr: Men’s Health, Wired, ESPN, Dwell, GQ, Rolling Stone, many more

Update (4/21 4:45pm): TopMags has a 3 year subscription (162-issues) to Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine for just $20 shipped right now using code BIZ315 in the cart. That’s as much as $160 below the regular price on a 3 year sub, more than $60 below this many issues from Bloomberg and matching the lowest we have seen this mag go for.

DiscountMags has kicked off a surprising 2 magazines for $9 sale right in the middle of the week. We tend to see these deals pop up on the weekends from time to time, and with especially discounted prices that lock you in for more than 1 year. Today’s bundle sale offers 1 year subscriptions on some of the most popular titles available for $4.50 each. While you must purchase 2 titles to receive the deal price, adding the optional 3rd, 4th and fifth magazines to your bundle will drop the individual prices on the extra mags down to just $4 each.

At $4 each, mags like Wired, Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Dwell, ESPN, GQ and Rolling Stone are all at the best prices we have seen this year and very close to the all-time lows from last holiday season. Many of the aforementioned magazines come with digital access for iPad along with the print version.

While it’s hard to pick just one standout from the bunch, very rarely do we see Men’s Health magazine with digital access included go for as low as $4 per year (or even $4.50). Even when bundled with other magazines it tends to only drop down as low as $5 per year.

Keep in mind, we do see Maxim magazine drop down even lower than today’s sale sometimes ($3.50 per year). And as usual, there is no sales tax, delivery fees or auto renewals. These subs are only available to those in the US. Note: Digital access comes once the first print edition arrives in most cases.
