Kiwi Bluetooth Android Phone Car Diagnostic Kit

car diagnostic bluetooth

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?

Micro USB Car Charger

car usb charger

There was a time when mobile phones were the size of bricks, you carried the battery pack in a shoulder bag and you had to charge them overnight – if you want to see one, you need to go to a museum. Thanks to the Micro USB Car Charger, you can drive over to see them and charge your iPod, iPhone or any other portable USB device as you go!

You will not find a more compact or portable car charger! In fact, you’ll hardly notice that it’s even there – until you need it, when you’ll be singing its praises while your favourite device is sucking the juice.

Not much bigger than the size of your thumb (depending on how big your thumb is of course), the Micro USB Car Charger’s sleek design will blend in with your car’s interior. And the cool blue LED ‘X’ lets you know that it’s got power.

You can use it for your iPod/iPhone (iPhone / iPod charging cable included), Blackberry and any other device that can charge via USB – in fact, there’s probably not one person you know (unless your grandad’s still got his brick phone) that couldn’t use the Micro USB Car Charger, which makes it a great gift for friends, workmates, family members, secret santas and of course, yourself! It’s the gift-that-fits-all!

Why get yourself tangled up with cords? Why lug around your 240V charger hoping you can find an outlet someone will let you use? The Micro USB Car Charger is the only charger you’ll ever need whilst on the move.

USB Cup Warmer

cup warmer

Burning the midnight oil cramming for an exam? So flat out at work that you barely have time to scratch yourself let alone go and make yourself a cuppa? Who doesn’t know the feeling?

…and the irritating thing is that just because you may get a chance to get away from your desk and make yourself a tea or coffee, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll have time to drink it immediately!

So knowing that there’s nothing less appealing than a cuppa gone cold, the USB Cup Warmer is simply an indispensable gadget to anyone anchored to their desk.

Simply plug this decor-pleasing plate straight into your USB computer port, pop your cuppa on it and your coffee, tea, Milo or soup will be warm for hours!

Featuring a bright LED indicating that the warmer is plugged in, you can flick the unit on and off direct from the base plate which means you don’t even have to keep plugging it in when you want to use it. Better still, even if you currently use your USB port for another device such as our USB Massage Ball, you can simply connect it to the built-in USB port on the side of the cup warmer itself.

Convenient, ingenious and so simple to use – you’ll never waste another cuppa again!
