As part of an ongoing series, the CNN Underscored team showcases outstanding deals you can shop right now on the CNN Store. Each week, our staff chooses a product to feature that we think you'll love. This week, we're highlighting the Triton 3-in-1 Cable ($9.99, originally $29.99; store.cnn.com), Graphene 8K HyperCharger Pro ($39.99, originally $79.99; store.cnn.com), 5K HyperCharger & Triton Cable ($22.99, originally $69.98; store.cnn.com) and LithiumCard Wallet ($20, originally $59.99; store.cnn.com).

With the many so-called standard charging cables on the market, it's hard to bring just one and be done. If you have an iPhone, Bluetooth headphones and a tablet, you likely have at least two charging cables to keep them powered up. And you'll need a portable charger with two available ports.

Luckily, though, a 3-in-1 cable and thin feature-filled portable batteries can help lessen this headache.

The Triton 3-in-1 Cable ($9.99, originally $29.99; store.cnn.com) comes in a 1-meter length and is a great companion product if you already have a portable charger. It's one cable with a micro-USB head, a USB-to-Lightning and a USB-C connection that hang off and snap on for easy charging.

This way you can power an iPhone or an Android with the same cable -- kind of genius. Plus the cable itself has a braided design for extra durability and a USB-A at a 2.0-amp speed for fast connections.

If you're looking for an all-in-one charging solution that can power a Lightning, micro-USB or USB-C device out of the box, there's a better option. The Graphene 8K HyperCharger Pro ($39.99, originally $79.99; store.cnn.com) comes in three variants:

  • Lightning and micro-USB
  • Lightning and USB-C
  • Micro-USB and USB-C

With an 8,000mAh battery inside, it should charge the average smartphone at least twice over.

Graphene also offers the 5K HyperCharger ($22.99, originally $69.98; store.cnn.com), a traditional portable charger, paired with a Triton 3-in-1 cable. So this bundle solution provides a 5,000mAh battery pack with a versatile charging cord.

Last but not least, the LithiumCard Wallet Battery ($20, originally $59.99; store.cnn.com) is just what its name suggests. It's about the size of a stack of five credit cards and contains a 1,200mAh battery with a USB-A port for charging itself and a Lightning, USB-C or micro-USB cable built in for charging a device. And it will charge at a rate of 2.0 amps.

Whether you opt for a 3-in-1 cable, battery pack or both, you'll be on the path toward a simpler bag filled with fewer wires.
