For most, driving is more than just safely arriving at your destination. It’s a journey, and it should be an enjoyable one. Here’s how you can gear-up your experience on the road with the coolest gadgets on the market.
Whether it’s getting your caffeine fix, improving air quality, or simply getting your sound on track, you’ll love these handy car gadgets. (And if you’re not impressed, it’s probably because you already own a set of fancy wheels with all the extras. #luckyfish).
It’s Monday morning and you’ve slept through your third alarm. You’ve got 20 minutes to get ready for work, which means that you sadly miss out on your morning caffeine fix. How will you ever survive without your life-giving coffee?
Handpresso Auto is the answer! The coffee maker is specially designed for vehicles – it plugs into your car’s 12-volt accessory plug (you know, that old school cigarette lighter thingy) and delivers delicious barista-quality espresso in just 2 minutes! The awesome accessory sits conveniently in your cupholder and works with both ground coffee and pods.
Embarrassed by the smell of smoke in your car when a colleague catches a lift with you?
iDOBBi Car Air Purifier eliminates a variety of offensive smells and allergens in your car. The whisper-quiet portable purifier connects to your 12-volt accessory plug to neutralize bacteria and bad odours. It uses the latest in technology to rid of dust and pollen to give you relief from allergies, and is beautifully designed to complement your car’s interior.
It’s time for a road trip.. You’re packed and ready to go. All that’s left to get you into holiday mode is a kickass playlist. The radio keeps playing pop songs on repeat and your car doesn’t have Bluetooth, do you hit the road with the sound of silence and some engine roars, or do you grab a gadget?
Hello, Mpow Bluetooth Receiver. This clever gadget plugs into your AUX input, and will give you 2 hours of playing time after charging the device for only 5 minutes! Simply switch it on, pair it with your mobile and start streaming music from your favourite app. The music will automatically play through your car’s speakers. And, now you can make hands-free calls too.
4.Handheld Mini Electric Car Air Pump
It’s easy to change a flat tyre in broad daylight, but when the sun sets it’s far more challenging. So, how do you deal with a flat tyre in the dark?
Keep a handheld electric car pump in your boot for those flat tyres that try to get in the way of your journey. The handheld mini electric car air pump is portable, cordless and can be used on any tyre.
