It’s just a cable but, oh my, it’s useful. Because not only does it have a Lightning connector for recharging your Apple devices, the end pops off to reveal a microUSB connector so it can also charge a Bluetooth speaker, compact camera or a myriad of other gadgets with microUSB connectors. Just Mobile’s range of electronic helpers is enormous. All are stylish and well made.

This rechargeable battery, like the Tylt, has a built-in Lightning cable for iPhones, though other phones can be charged using the supplied microUSB cable. But this 9000mAh cell is half as powerful again as the Tylt, so it can charge an iPhone 6 three times over. It’s aluminium-clad and comes in colours to match the iPhone, too – silver, gold and grey.

Zaggfolio.jpg

This wraparound case protects your iPad Air 2 and includes a Bluetooth keyboard, to turn the tablet into a highly efficient mini notebook PC.

10 Cambridge Audio G2 Mini Bluetooth speaker: £79.95,johnlewis.com

Campridgespeaker.jpg

Talented though your smartphone is, it can’t play music well through its little speaker. So choose a Bluetooth speaker like this one that plays music wirelessly from your phone, up to 10 metres away. This model is light, effective and deceptively powerful.
