Table Top Fire Place For Those Chilly Nights!

For those of us who happen to live in a country where the mercury drops very low during winter, I am quite sure that you would have your very own creative methods of keeping warm – without having to spend too much money on heating while you are at it, that is.

The Best Automotive Jump Starter.

There is nothing more of a bummer than to actually end up with a dead battery in your ride when you walk up to it, and to compound matters even more, you have recently changed the battery in your car, which means the battery should not be acting in this manner.

Rechargeable Book Light You Have Always Wanted Called Page Glow

Reading in bed can be a lovely way to end a stressful day, but without proper lighting it’s hard on your eyes. You can use a lamp, but if you share a room with someone it will keep them from sleeping. Should you happen to share a bed with someone as well, then even an attachable book light might be enough to keep them up as it is a focused light pointing down towards the page. For those who are not sitting up the bulb is visible and is as bright as the sun (not really, but you get my meaning).

Petalite Flux offers a full phone charge in 15 minutes!

We are a people who simply cannot live without the kind of gadgets that we bring around, ranging from smartphones to tablets and the ilk. Having said that, I am quite sure that those of us who are well traveled would not mind carrying around an extra power pack or additional battery to handle those power crisis moments.
