This is the high-definition television suitable for permanent installation and use outdoors. The television’s internal components are integrated into an all-weather exterior that repels rain, dirt, insects, and harsh outdoor conditions. Unlike common televisions that lose picture quality due to glare, this television has a 46″ active-matrix TFT screen with an anti-reflective window that provides indoor-quality viewing outdoors in shaded daylight. Capable of 1080i HD performance, the high-resolution screen generates an 1,920 x 1,080 pixel image with a sharp 1,500:1 contrast ratio, and is protected by a scratch-resistant, contrast-enhancing window. A quad-airflow system ensures the television stays cool, dry, and properly ventilated–even up to 122º F. A watertight entry system keeps cables dry, allowing you to connect the television to cable, a satellite dish, a DVD/BluRay player, and an antenna. The internal thermostat-controlled heater maintains proper temperature even in weather as cold as 24º F. Two 10-watt water-resistant speakers provide clear stereo sound. Includes a weather-resistant remote with rechargeable batteries, an articulating wall mount, and an outdoor dust cover.

This is the device that charges a car’s battery from the comfort and safety of the driver’s seat. Small enough to store inside a glove box, the 30-volt battery plugs into a car’s 12-volt lighter outlet. The device jump-starts a car’s battery in as little as 10 minutes, providing a two-amp “trickle” charge, even in temperatures as low as -10º F. A quick beep indicates when charging is complete. Reversing a switch allows the device to recharge in 30 minutes from a running car. It comes fully charged, providing up to five years of power. Includes a set of mini-jumper cables for motorcycles.

This is the electric golf cart that has an array of 72 photovoltaic cells built into the roof that collect solar energy, providing up to 33% more range between recharges than non-solar electric golf carts. The cart’s 160-watt array produces up to three amps per hour for its 48-volt rechargeable battery system, providing a range of up to 49 miles–approximately 10 rounds of golf–before requiring a full recharge (overnight via its 6′ long AC adapter; 15 hours via its solar array). The array also extends the life of the battery system by 60% more than other electric golf carts. Its 5 1/2-hp electric motor and 19-spline rear axle provides a maximum speed of 24 MPH and is powerful enough to enable the cart to climb a 28° incline when fully loaded with two passengers and golf bags, supporting up to 755 lbs. The cart uses rack and pinion steering, leaf springs, and heavy shock suspension to provide a smooth, even ride on its rugged 8″ pneumatic tires. A built-in speed controller allows you to limit the maximum speed, and its self-adjusting drum brakes provide reliable stopping. Includes a two-person seat with vinyl upholstery, four cup holders, and straps for securing two golf bags.

Check Engine? WTF does that mean?
- Connect your Android phone to your car wirelessly
- Run diagnostics, check fuel economy, tons more
- Works on any car model 1996 or newer
If you’re not a car geek, the light that says “CHECK ENGINE” might as well say “PC LOAD LETTER.” Sure, we can open the hood and verify that indeed, the engine is still present, but beyond that, we’re a little lost. Best we can do is drive it to the garage and hope that we don’t get totally bamboozled by the mechanic again. We already bought the anti-unicorn disinfectant treatment once! It’s supposed to protect the air filter from glitter for life, right?

This dog shower has 16 water-jet nozzles and a showerhead that wash and rinse your canine in an enclosed space. The jet nozzles produce vigorous streams of water that penetrate even the thickest coats to clean pet hair and remove dead skin cells. A handheld, adjustable-flow showerhead has a 38″ hose that allows you to easily wash and rinse the paws, underbody, and other hard-to-reach areas. Two integrated leashes gently restrain pets and dual locking doors keep dogs confined. The shower’s 31″-high walls and a partial, clear plastic roof help keep water inside the shower (and off of you) yet allow access to the dog. The spa connects to a spigot or faucet using the included adapters and a garden hose or a 1/2″ braided metal hose. A 2′-long flexible drainpipe channels used water out of the shower. The shower has two locking casters, the 9 1/2′ cu. interior accommodates dogs up to 200 lbs., and a removable shelf elevates small canines.

This misting outdoor fan makes a patio or deck as comfortable as an air-conditioned room without being tethered to a garden hose. Encountered in luxury resorts and outdoor cafes, the fan reduces the air temperature by as much as 30º F. by gently misting the surrounding area. Its six patented nozzles create micro-fine droplets that feel dry to the touch and evaporate almost instantly, providing refreshing cooling without the soaking spray common with lesser misting fans. An eight-gallon reservoir holds enough water for up to eight hours of continuous misting; the density of mist adjusts with a simple turn of a dial. The 30″ fan’s high-velocity three-speed motor is waterproof and can oscillate 50º, cooling up to a 1000′ sq. area. Because flying insects typically avoid wind and moisture, the fan also helps reduce these outdoor nuisances. The fan features weather-resistant powder-coated metal and plastic construction, with two wheels on the base that provide easy mobility. Plugs into AC. Height adjusts from 47″ to 60″. 30″ Diam. base

These are the reading glasses that clearly illuminate subjects immediately in front of you while keeping the surrounding area in darkness. With built-in LEDs in the upper corners of the lens frame, they are ideal for reading in bed without disturbing a sleeping partner, repairing a fuse during a power outage, or examining a map in the car without inconveniencing the driver. Each of the glasses’s two LEDs provide 16 lumens and are angled inward, creating two efficient, overlapping cones of light, providing 4X the light of lesser models. Four CR1632 batteries that fit into the frame provide up to 50 hours of illumination. The optical quality frames are made of plastic; high-quality refractive lenses are available in three different strengths (+1.5, +2.0, +2.5). Not available for shipment to New York.
