MY WIFE ALWAYS ASKS ME: WHY ARE YOU BUYING THAT CAR ACCESSORY?
My answer is simple: because I need it.
Indeed, with the numerous driving gadgets available today, motorists will be tempted to buy just about every gizmo they can find online. But not all gizmos are essential. Some are simply unnecessary things you can do without.
Since my wife has been questioning my purchases recently, I’ve decided to buy the important ones. Here’s my list so far:
ZTYLUS STINGER USB EMERGENCY ESCAPE TOOL
This is an emergency escape tool that can give us the best chance to quickly escape our vehicle in case of an emergency. It can break tempered glass. It also comes with a sharp blade that can be used in cutting the seat belt just in case it can’t be released normally. It’s a relatively cheap gizmo at $15.
SCOSCHE REVOLT COMPACT DUAL PORT USB FAST CHARGER
These days, we can’t leave the house without our gadgets. My wife has a tablet and the kids each have their own phones.So I think my wife will agree that we need this compact dual port USB fast charger. It can charge two devices at one. It’s also cheap at less than $12.
TILEMATE KEY FINDER
God knows how many times I almost lost my car keys so I’m getting this TileMate that can help me find the car keys anytime. It can easily loop onto a keychain and then there’s an app that I can use to find the tracker during those times when I can’t remember where I kept it. This product can also be used in other essentials such as smartphones and tablets.
PEARL REARVISION WIRELESS CAR BACKUP CAM
My wife isn’t the best driver out there and she struggles when backing up the car. I think this wireless car backup camera and obstacle alert system will help her a lot and prevent accidents down the road. It is easy to install (no need for a pro to do it) and uses Bluetooth technology and Wi-Fi to transfer live footage to a smartphone.
GARMIN DASH CAM
There’s no question that dash cams are essential in today’s cars. It becomes even more important in case of an accident as the clip can prove who’s at fault in case of an accident. Yes, there are cheaper dash cams than this Darmin Dash Cam but I’m still picking it because it is more reliable, ease of installation or use, and value for money.
