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.

The Cool Mist Outdoor Fan

mist outdoor fan

Countering hot, dry weather with its refreshing mist, this outdoor fan makes a patio or deck as comfortable as an air-conditioned room. Lightweight and easy to move, the fan has a 6′ hose that connects to an ordinary garden hose or spigot. The fan circulates water to a four-nozzle misting head, then gently mists the surrounding area, reducing the air temperature by as much as 25º F. The 16″ fan oscillates 90º, cooling up to 640′ sq. Because flying insects typically avoid wind and moisture, the fan also helps reduce these outdoor nuisances. UV- and rust-resistant; solid-state construction. High-velocity three-speed motor is waterproof and produces 40,000 BTUs of cooling power. Includes four replacement misting nozzles.

Ear Pressure Equaliser – Relief from blocked ear pressure

earreliefpressure  Ear Pressure Equaliser – Relief from blocked ear pressure

Instant relief from ‘blocked’ ears and ear pressure pain. This pressure equaliser was invented by an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist, so it’s entirely safe to use. Rising external pressure during flights, mountain climbing, skiing or diving etc slightly deforms our eardrums, and the resulting ‘blockage’ can be severely painful. This gadget works by producing a counteractive negative pressure inside your ear, relaxing the ear drum and Eustachian tube to allow air back into the middle ear. It’s a neat pocket size so it’s easy to carry with you, and a safety valve limits the suction force so it can never create too much pressure. Simply unwind the tube and insert the earpiece in your ear, then press the membrane gently for instant relief.

  • Safe for any age 3 years +
  • CE tested
  • Complies with Medical Directive 93/42/EC
  • Australian TV innovation award winner on ‘The New Inventors’
  • Comes with 3 ear piece sizes
  • Manufacturer’s 2-year guarantee
  • 3½” x 2” x 1” (9 x 5.2 x 2.5cm)

Evaporative Cooling Cap

evaporative cap

The patented fibers in this cap use evaporation to draw heat away in warm weather, keeping your head up to 30º cooler than outside air temperature. The hat is charged by running it under cool water, then wringing out the excess. The cap has hydrophilic and hydrophobic fibers in a three-layer fabric that conducts body heat upwards, while retaining the cool water and releasing it slowly through evaporation. Even while the middle layer holds onto water, your head remains cool and dry thanks to an inner lining that water can’t permeate. Worn dry, it also provides effective insulation during cooler weather, trapping heat at a level far greater than non-insulated hats. Cotton and polyfiber blend. One size fits most; adjustable hook-and-loop back. Imported. Navy or Khaki. 4 1/2″ H x 7″ W x 10″ D. (2 oz.)
