The Luminid Touch Light-Up Cable glows when you touch it, making it easier to plug it into your phone after dark. You can order one now for $10 shipped via 9to5Toys Specials.

If you are a parent, or someone with roommates, there are times when switching the light on isn’t an option. For such circumstances, the Luminid is ideal. It comes in Lightning and micro USB flavors, and inside the connector there is an LED light. When you pick up the cable, this glows until you manage to plug in your phone or tablet successfully. At 40 inches long, the Luminid offers impressive reach, and the cord is sheathed within a durable PVC jacket which provides good flexibility. The Lightning version is also MFi-certified, meaning it has Apple’s seal of approval.

Currently, the Luminid Touch Light-Up Cable is 49% off the MSRP of the Lightning version, and 54% off the micro USB cable $9 — both with free shipping.
