Deal Of The Day: 33% Off On Titan Loop MFi-Certified Lightning Cable

titan-cord-1

The basic Lightning cord Apple provides with its mobile devices is lacking, to be honest. It breaks and wears out easily, and doesnt honest. It breaks and wears out easily, and doesn’t have functionality that some third-party companies provide, like the Titan Loop MFi-Certified Lightning Cable.

Too long? Too short? Try the perfect charging cord length. This keychain cable is long enough to extend to your power source, but short enough to fold in half and attach to your keychain or belt loop. Wrapped in industrial-strength steel, not only is the Titan Loop virtually indestructible, but essential for your on-the-go charging needs.

Loop in half & attach to your keychain, belt loop, bag, etc.
Easily extend to your USB port & plug in
Enjoy durability of industrial strength steel
Avoid dealing w/ easily frayed & damaged cables
Keep your devices safe w/ MFi certification
Always have a handy iPhone charger within reach

Normally you’d have to pay $30 for this heavy duty cord, but today’s special brings it down to $19.95.

This Pop-Up Socket And USB Charger Gets Out Of The Way When Not In Use

pop-up-charger-640x533

You’ve probably noticed: the number of mobile devices that need an occasional charge has skyrocketed over the last few years. From smartphones, to tablets and watches, everyone needs a charge from time to time. It’s a pain to outfit your home with more sockets, especially since they can be an eyesore when not properly integrated into your decor. But the Pop-up Socket and USB Charger changes that by popping out of view when you’re done charging. Just make the effort to cut a 102 – 105mm diameter hole on your countertop and wire it up. This particular model offers 3 x UK plug sockets and 2 x USB ports in an aluminium housing. It’s currently out of stock, but retails for $28.

Snooz Generates White Noise So You Can Sleep Better

snooz-1

Random sounds keeping you up at night? There’s a few things you can do, from having a stern talk with your neighbours to taking prescription medication to knock yourself out. In between these options, there’s also white noise. Snooz is a device that generates white noise that masks the ambient sounds in your home, by using a real fan rather than some low quality speaker. A simple dial on top lets you adjust the intensity, which can range from a “light fan sound (think table fan) to a deep fan drone (think airplane cabin) and everything in-between.” White noise works to help you sleep because “it reduces the delta between your baseline sound and containment noise so many disturbances aren’t heard and the others sound much quieter (i.e. the “startle factor” is reduced).”

In a 2008 Consumer Reports analysis, 2,021 survey respondents found sound machines to be more helpful than over-the-counter drugs or supplements like Tylenol PM and Unisom (and almost as effective as prescription medication like Ambien and Lunesta).

Snooz’s design is modern, portable (at 2.5″ tall) and self-contained with room for the power cord within. You can control it with an app on your smartphone, and a “nursery calibration” feature will let you set the upper volume to a level that’s safe for your infant, if you were to place it near his crib.

All in all, Snooz looks like a great product to help you get to sleep, for which you’ll be asked to pledge $59 with shipping in March 2016.

plazmatic-lighter

No matter how “wind resistant” lighters claim to be, usually if you blow hard enough, the flame will extinguish. That’s why the Plazmatic Flameless Lighter is interesting: it doesn’t use fire at all.

Taco Bell Testing Taco Shell Made From Crispy Chicken

taco_bell_chicken_taco_shell_thumb1

Don’t go looking for it at your local Taco Bell just yet, unless you live in Bakersfield and Lost Hills, California. That’s where a Reddit user spotted the above. It’s called Naked Crispy Chicken Taco, and it’s a taco with a shell made of crispy white meat chicken. The other ingredients include lettuce, cheese, tomato and avocado ranch sauce, so… no extra meat. But who cares? It’s $2.99 for one, to $4.99 in a combo. We don’t know whether the chain will expand the offering statewide, but we sure hope so. We suspect that some people in Colorado might be down.

Chewbacca Fur Crocs? Yes, They Exist

chewbacca-crocs-1

In a short while, everything will be Star Wars merchandise. Star Wars tacos? Probably. Star Wars toilet paper? I bet that already exists. I mean, if someone somewhere thought it would be a good idea to make fur-lined Chewbacca Crocs, then what’s not off limits? They come in men and women’s sizes up to 13 and 12 respectively, and each one includes a permanently attached Chewbacca™ badge, and the bottom band matches Chewbacca’s belt. If you’re going to wear the abomination that are Crocs, well, we suppose you might as well do it while displaying your love for Star Wars, which only partly redeems your questionable taste. They’re $60.

Samsung’s New Front Loading Washing Machine Lets You Have Your Cake and Eat It Too

Addwash_2

Front-loading washing machines have many advantages over traditional top-loading ones, like needing less water to accomplish the same tasks. But one drawback is that once the cycle has started, you can’t usually add any more clothes. Samsung’s new WW8500 AddWash changes that by incorporating a second small door on the main front door, which you can use to add things mid-cycle. Just press the pause button, and add whatever you want without any of the water spilling out the front. It’s a pretty high-tech washing machine that even includes WiFi so that you can monitor your cycle with your smartphone. There’s no word on pricing or availability, but you can bet it won’t be the cheapest machine on the block.
