The list that we propose to you is very heterogeneous and should give you gift ideas, whether the person you want to make happy has a “nerd” profile, collects all kinds of high tech gadgets or has specific needs in nomadism. There’s even something to delight fans of retrogaming, with a mini arcade terminal and a famous electronic game.
And if you really can’t find the shoe for you, we have a joker for you, at the end of the article, with some suggestions that we consider relevant.
Tribe Star Wars Darth Vader USB Flash Drive
There are lots of USB keys and many have a fairly versatile design. But a few models stand out, drawing on pop culture. This is the case of this Tribe USB key dressed up as Darth Vader.
On the technical side, the key includes a storage space of 16 GB and uses a USB 2.0 standard, which is unfortunately a bit dated. Tribe offers other models than Darth Vader, such as Yoda, R2D2, Chewbacca, C3PO, BB-8 or even porgs. Please note: not all designs are offered with the same storage spaces (there are also 8 or 32 GB). The price will also vary depending on the size of the USB key and the look you have chosen for your Christmas gift.
Finding a decent headset for less than 25 euros, mission impossible? Not for the Sony MDR-ZX310. For this price range, the product stands out with both a neat look and a satisfying sound.
It’s certainly not quite the kind of headphones that the most demanding music lovers will flock to, but Sony’s MDR-ZX310R model still has a few tricks up its sleeve. In addition to a rather elegant design without excess (it is also available with a blue, black or white finish), the headphones deliver honorable sound for this price range. And that is the main thing.
The helmet also comes with a remote control (there is a version that does not have one) and its architecture allows it to be folded on itself, which will make it easier to transport in a small piece of luggage. According to the manufacturer, the frequency response ranges from 10 to 24,000 Hz. The headphones weigh 125 grams, which is minimal for headphones of this type, and the cord measures 1.2 meters.
The Anker SoundCore is a mini speaker that promises fifteen hours of continuous listening after a full charge. It can be connected by Bluetooth, auxiliary cable or receive a micro SD card depending on where your music is (for example on Spotify or Deezer, via your smartphone). Its small dimensions do not prevent it from delivering a relatively powerful sound, given its size.
A portable speaker can be a good solution for adding sound to a room, without having to break the bank. It is the ideal companion for the holidays, because it does not take up space in the bag and can be used in accommodation that is not particularly equipped. The signal range via Bluetooth is 20 meters and automatic reconnection with the last device used is provided.
The Tile Mate is an electronic device that attaches to keys, puts in a bag or slips into a wallet. Once paired with the smartphone and its application, this Bluetooth tracker rings to report the location of the misplaced object associated with it. The opposite direction is possible: press the tracker to trigger the ringing of the mobile, even in silent mode.
The advertised range is 45 meters between the Tile Mate and a smartphone. These are the optimal conditions: depending on the environment, the Bluetooth signal may be less extensive. However, the application includes a history of the last known location, which can help find an object potentially off the radar. The gadget uses a button battery to operate.
Smartphones today are capable of taking very successful photographs. However, some effects are best achieved with a specific lens. AMIR’s 9-in-1 kit offers nine different lenses to clip onto a smartphone: two wide-angle lenses, two macro lenses, a fisheye lens, a telephoto lens, a CPL lens, a starburst lens, and a kaleidoscope lens.
Manufacturers all promise that their smartphones last more than a day. To no longer have to worry about the autonomy of the mobile, an external battery is a ready-made solution. Plus, it doesn’t take up much space.
Do you hear your uncle regularly complaining about the still too low autonomy of his smartphone? Maybe it’s time to offer him an external battery, which also acts as a pouch to protect the mobile while charging. That’s what Emtec ‘s Power Pouch offers. Its capacity is 5000 mAh, which allows it to ensure several refills without worry. A carabiner is also available.
