The Weekend Spend: blinding torches, super styluses and Ben Affleck

We've rounded up some top goodies for our weekly round-up of the best buys

Fuel phone charger (£25)

The world's smallest mobile phone charger, this tiny keyring-sized fuel tank features a micro USB connector to juice up your phone with around 20-30 more minutes of precious talk time. And it looks like a little jerry can, too. How absolutely darling.

LED Lenser P7.2 Torch (£45)

This absurdly powerful torch pumps out a whopping 320 lumens of light, with an advanced focus system for switching between a wide flood beam and a focused spot beam and three different brightness settings. It's light as well as bright, weighing in at a mere 175g.

Oh, and it's the same one used by Sherlock on the telly, if you care about the endorsement of fictional characters. It'll go nicely with that Belstaff coat, you massive poser.

More after the break...

Adonit Jot Script Evernote Edition stylus (£46)

Styluses are great for taking notes on your tablet, but they tend to be very bulky – with a big fat conductive tip that feels nothing like a real pen. Adonit's Jot Script stylus aims to change all that – glance at it and you'd think it was a ballpoint pen, thanks to its 1.9mm Pixelpoint tip. Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity lets it play nice with Evernote's Penultimate app, too, adding palm rejection to its precision note-taking smarts.

Lightskin seatpost (£20)

Chuck your clunky old bicycle lights and kit your steed out with this awesome seat post – it has five LEDs built in, blasting out red light to protect your backside and keep you visible on the road. What d'you mean it's raining out? Get on your bike.

Argo: Declassified Extended Edition (£22)

Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning drama returns to Blu-ray in an extended cut. It's a brilliant account of the 1979 Iran hostage crisis, in which a group of US embassy staff were rescued thanks to a frankly bonkers plan: a CIA team infiltrating the country by pretending to be a movie crew working on a sci-fi epic.

Equal parts tense and funny, and crammed with high-calibre actors including John Goodman and Bryan Cranston, it'll make you sad that Affleck's taken on the role of Batman. Because it'll keep him from directing more films like this.

The Declassified Edition is packed with extra goodies, including the original and extended cuts, two hours of special features, a 64-page book, Argo movie poster and a map of movie locations.
