The best gadgets help us navigate our lives with ease, making particular processes that much more hassle-free. With technology, it’s often the little things that make all the difference in the world. Take AUKEY’s car phone mount, for instance. At only $7.99 on Amazon, there’s no reason you should be fumbling with your iPhone while you’re using Google Maps on a road trip. The clip attaches directly to any air vent, putting your phone front and center for easy viewing and reducing the need for dangerous fiddling.
Or, pair an Amazon Echo with the Tp-Link Smart Plug Mini ($29.99), which allows you to activate all kinds of devices with your voice or your phone. It’s the perfect first step toward a smarter home and a world of convenience.
If you’ve got a phone that’s always dying, hook it up to an Anker battery case, which can extend the battery life of most phones by as much as 120%.
