OK, hands up, if your car ran out of battery and you had to give it a boost, would you know which jump leads go where? If not, this gadget could be your saving grace. The vehicle-to-vehicle booster works in a similar way to common jump leads – in that it transfers battery power from one car to another. However, instead of lifting up the bonnet, you can just connect this device to both cars’ 12V DC sockets (the cigarette lighter socket) and a few minutes later your car will be raring to go. The lead itself is six meters – easily long enough to stretch between two cars.

Even in our own homes, it’s amazing how many toxins and chemicals (and dust, of course) can be found in the air around us. It’s actually terrifying, so I recommend you don’t Google any of the statistics. With that being said, one of the cool gadgets for men (and women) that we love is this Awair Smart Air Quality Monitor. It analyzes the air quality around you, monitoring things like carbon dioxide, toxic chemicals, and dust, as well as temperature and humidity (although, admittedly, you don’t really need the two latter since those are things you can typically just feel). Still, it hooks up to an app on your smartphone, and will send you alerts when the quality of air changes. It’s like a high-tech carbon dioxide monitor that also does a ton of other monitoring for you. And, it has an LED on the front for a quick snapshot of the air quality around you. Want to impress your friends with a futuristic-looking gadget? The Awair monitor is a great choice.
