Your phone doesn't have to be the only smart piece of tech in your pocket. We regularly take pens, lighters, and wallets for granted, but here are 10 portable items that improve on those everyday bits of gear and others just like them.
Tired of that same old fidget spinner? This two-piece sensory device involves a magnetic ball that rotates a grade 5 titanium hub, providing continuous, hypnotic movement that you can control and enjoy. And with a nano-composite microlayer, you can be sure it's more durable than typical spinners. TEC Accessories' The Orbiter™ Pinstripe Magnetic Fidget Device is now $29.99, a full 55% off the list price.
Open and closed wrench, a screwdriver, bit driver, wire bender and even a smokeable pipe are just a few of the uses of this multi-tool. It's TSA-compliant, and it's roughly the size and shape of a regular key, so it goes with you wherever your keychain does. The Geekey Multi-Tool is now $22.99, down 58% from the original cost.
The emergency fire flint kit makes this pint-sized multi-tool especially useful for the outdoors, but the wire stripper and 7(!) wrenches make it a lifesaver around the house as well. Get the EverRatchet Ratcheting Keychain Multi-Tool for $24.99, a 10% break off the MSRP.

It doesn't get much more eco-friendly than this innovative pen which lays down trace amounts of a metal alloy instead of ink, making it effectively useable forever. As a fringe benefit, the lines don't smudge or erase. The Omega AXL Inkless Pen is priced at $29.99, down a full 25% from the MSRP.
This super-thin home for your credit and debit cards is less of a wallet and more of a holster. It holds 6-10 cards and can fan them out for use with a single flick of the wrist. Get the Fantom 10 Quick Access Slim Wallet for $49, more than 35% off the list price.
Stop wasting cash and planetary resources on butane refills or disposable lighters.
