Aluminum wallet/credit card holder

Why should you need an aluminum wallet? In an era of remote and contactless payments, protecting your information should be one of your top priorities.

Aluminum wallets are equipped with an RFID-blocking construction that protects your card information against scammers, offering you peace of mind.

Battery pack

Nothing is more frustrating than being out and looking for your phone only to find that it has less than 10% of the battery left. It can be a real bummer, especially if you know you will not be home for some time. A portable battery pack will solve your problem. Most battery packs have USB ports, so they work with any device, as long as you have a compatible cord. You should get two battery packs – one for the car and one for charging so that you can have access to power anytime you need it.

Bluetooth speaker

You may think, “not another Bluetooth speaker again!” However, you may need another one if you’re planning a fishing holiday, camping, or just sitting and relaxing on the patio. Choose a Bluetooth speaker that’s perfect for the outdoors as it is for the indoors, has unparalleled sound quality, and connects easily to any Bluetooth device. If desired, choose a Bluetooth speaker that connects to any non-Bluetooth device via a 3.5 mm audio jack. 

Ideally, a Bluetooth speaker for indoor and outdoor use should have an IP rating – the higher the Bluetooth speaker’s IP rating, the better its protection against water and foreign objects.

Cable organizer

Do you hate seeing your electric and USB cables strewn and tangled all over the place? Don’t know where to put, find, and access all of your cables? In that case, an organizer is an answer to corral and sort all the various USB cables, wall or car plugs, SD cards, and other items considered extremely useful. Some cable organizers provide protection them from dust, scratches, and moisture, while others allow you to store and access your cords and USB cables more easily.

Camera drone

More guys are into aerial photography and videography these days, whether it’s a hobby, profession, or side hustle. Drones are remote-controlled unmanned aircraft that can be used for various purposes: photography, filming, surveillance, monitoring, and delivering goods. But in this case, we’re talking about camera drones for hobbyists. There is a dizzying array of camera drone choices catering to different budgets and skill levels. There are camera drone choices for amateurs and professionals, offering a wide selection of creative angles and one-of-a-kind perspectives that you cannot do with an ordinary camera or smartphone camera. 

The camera technology itself is one of the most significant improvements since camera drones were first introduced. Nowadays, you can find drones with bigger sensors, better resolutions, enhanced stabilization systems, and some newer features (such as hyperlapse and face recognition). Not to mention that intelligent flight controls have improved quite considerably, making drones easy to fly, even for novice users.

Charging station

The everyday life of a modern man is constantly on-the-go and dominated by the functionality of multiple devices. Smartphones, laptops, and tablets are among the most used gadgets. Even many of today’s appliances are run by USB charging, like blenders, mini-fridges, electric fans, and portable food warmers. Because these devices are indispensable, they need to be constantly powered. 

For someone with a tech-driven lifestyle, a charging station that can handle multiple devices is sure to come in handy! Place it on the counter, nightstand, desktop, or nightstand and plug it up into numerous gadgets. Charging stations vary depending on the number of devices they can charge – some can charge up to 10 devices simultaneously – and the type of USB ports. Charging stations are handy and safe, as they are normally supported by FCC, ETL, CE, and RoHS certifications.

Coffee mug warmer

The last thing anyone wants is a cup of coffee that has become cold. To keep your cup of joe hot at the desk, home, work, or anywhere, a coffee mug and its heating base and coaster work together to keep the beverage at optimal temperatures. Coffee mugs with warmers are available in both wired and wireless, and some wireless options can double as wireless chargers for other devices. Note that the base does not heat the coffee itself, but it does maintain its temperature.
