NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – – It doesn’t matter if they’re a techie or not, anyone with a few things that need charging will
appreciate a desktop charging hub. This hub from Limitless Innovations has 6 traditional AC plugs plus 4 USB charging ports.
Surprisingly, even with those ten plug-ins, it can still sit on a desk without taking up too much room. This ChargeHub is around $60.
They may not know what it is when they first open it – the Fixd Car Health monitor is a practical
device that will show why the check engine light is on and how to reset it. You might just save a lot of money by repairing it yourself.
Fixd also monitors anything that ails a car and parents can monitor their kid’s car from a smartphone app. The Fixd Monitor is $60.
People used to drive around with jumper-cables, just in case. Now you can do the same thing with a battery operated jump starter, small enough to fit under the seat. Just attach it to the car’s battery and turn the keys. The JumpSmart Jumpstarter has a flashlight on one end and costs about $160. The Fly-Hi is less expensive at $60.
Ever wonder why the USB plug doesn’t charge your phone very much? It’s because it is not supposed to, there’s not enough power going through it.
A two-port dedicated charger that plugs into the cigarette lighter charges your phone fast. This one from RAV Power is just $10.
Smudgy screens can’t really come clean with water or your pants leg. Whoosh is a cleaner that not only cleans smartphone screens but eyeglasses, computers, and TVs too.
Spray it on and wipe it with the cloth that comes with it. A Woosh kit with spray cleaner, travel size and cloths is about $16.
Practical tech gift ideas for the person who seems to have everything.
