The $89 Elevation Dock 3 is built to handle all sizes of phone, including both sizes of the iPhone 6 generation and the cases you may use to protect them. The aluminum base is heavy enough that you can undock your phone in an easy one-handed fashion.

The most notable thing about the European-made FS-X Bluetooth speaker is its extraordinary battery life—the makers promise you can get 50 hours of playback after charging it for just 50 minutes. It’s light and portable, and if paired with a second FS-X, the two will act as left-right stereo speakers.



The iShowFast is technically still in its crowdfunding phase, but since it’s tripled the original $50,000 production goal, it’s safe to say this Flash drive will be going into production. It features connectors for both USB 3.0 and Lightning, and is billed as “the fastest way to move data between iOS devices and computers.” You can still pledge $179 to get in on “early bird” specials before production begins.



The $40 Airframe+ Leather Edition is a really nice car mount for your iPhone, decked out with leather and gold chrome accents. “It supports all smartphones and phablets with up to 6-inch screens and is compatible with any vent,” the makers say. It’ll keep your phone at eye level and available for music, hands-free calls, or navigation assistance.



The $50 Smart Power Tube 3000mAh Portable Battery offers 3,000 mAh of battery storage and, critically, a little bit of style: It’s available in six different colors.



It’s November! Soon it will be winter and you’ll want to do two things: A) Keep your hands warm and B) use your iPhone outdoors. Mujjo is, as always, here to help, with Single Layered and Double Layered touchscreen gloves that let you keep using your touchsreen device, even when you’re all bundled up.



The $40 Smart Outlet is a Bluetooth device—just plug your favorite appliance into the Smart Outlet (which, in turn, should be plugged into a regular old dumb outlet) and, voila, you have remote control of that appliance using your iPhone or iPad. (See this video for a demonstration.)



The $30 Bluetooth Media Button “makes your phone even more accessible with a single press of a button. Attach the button to your keychain, steering wheel, or dashboard to safely and conveniently access your smartphone when it’s out of reach. Access your tablet or smartphone even while it’s in your pocket, purse, from the couch, and more!”



The $80 Leather Watch Case works as both a protective case and as a pretty nice-looking stand for your Apple Watch. It’s wrapped in European leather and has gunmetal accents—and it’s compatible with all Apple Watch bands. It might even be nicer than most of them.
