Beyond Ink Pen

The Beyond Ink Pen is a clever device: part pen, part stylus, part USB drive, and part iPhone charger. Really. It has an ink reserve for the ballpoint pen, and the tips can be switched out so you can use it as a stylus. It also has a 16GB UB drive built into it—lift the cap to plug it in. But the best thing is that they crammed in a 1000mAh battery for giving your iPhone an emergency charge of up to five hours of talk time. Oh, and it has a built-in Lightning cable (MicroUSB model available, too) for charging. It sounds like something Q would be pleased with. Through our deal you can get Beyond Ink Pen for $49, a discount of 30 percent.
