Do you often forget your iPhone charger at home? When you do remember it, does it end up tangled at the bottom of your bag? Here’s an option for you: The GoBuddy+ Charger. It’s a portable charging cable for iPhones and iPads that fits on your keychain. The connectors tuck in nicely and the cable remains as compact as you need it. Did we mention it doubles as a bottle opener?

The Details

  • It comes in black or white
  • It’s Apple certified to work with iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5, 5C, 5S, iPod Touch (5th generation), iPad mini, iPad with Retina Display, iPad Air
  • Cable measures 8.25 inches
  • Contains a bottle opener
  • Price: $24.95

Fair warning: If you’re not used to having anything on your keychain other than keys, you may find it a bit bulky. You may also find the connectors come out of their slots when the GoBuddy+ is bouncing around in your bag.

If neither of those bother you, you may find it’s the perfect gift for your tech-savvy (or forgetful) friends, and it fits into many “Secret Santa” gift exchange budgets. You can even win the title of “Best Roommate Ever” if you’re feeling generous (or annoyed at all the cords always lying around).

And yes, it’s ok to pick one up for yourself! Your classmates are guaranteed to think you’re a leader in technology and pub night efficiency.
