If your other half, friend, dad or brother is a gadget geek, Croyland Car Megastore has complied a list of ultimate, must-have gadgets for the car – so you will never be stuck for buying a present again!
Obviously, keeping your devices charged is of upmost importance and an essential piece of car kit. But these are no ordinary chargers! Did you know that Star Wars fans could have a classic R2D2, Darth Vader or Storm Trooper charger, or if the new film took the top spot, a useful BB-8 USB charger sits in a cupholder like a little co-pilot! These too cool chargers are available from: http://www.thinkgeek.com/electronics-gadgets/car-accessories priced $9.99 - $39.99 plus shipping.
Or why not go ‘back to the future’ and get your very own Flux Capacitor USB car charger – which even lights up like the one in the hit 90’s favourite film. Available from Amazon UK priced £28.81.
And who would not LOVE to turn their car into the legendary Knight 2000? Be like the Hoff with this realistic looking K.I.T.T voice box from the hit 80s series, Knight Rider. This ultimate USB charger features light sequences from KITT's voicebox that are synced to respond to 11 different audio phrases from the TV show. AMAZING! And in case you ever need less 80s, there's a switch to turn the whole thing off or mute him. Available from Amazon priced £34.04.
Moving away from chargers, but still practical nonetheless, keep your morning coffee or tea hot while on the drive into work, or indeed all day, with a dual powered, auto/usb heated travel mug. Or how about a mobile phone style charger that can jump start your car should you need it? The JunoJumper can start a completely dead auto battery in seconds and even comes with proprietary jumper cables. Stick it in your glovebox - your gadgets (and vehicle) will thank you! http://junopower.com
Lastly, if you know someone who likes to hang out in a classic vehicle, the Bluetooth Cassette Adapter will add a little bit of current tech to their favourite four-wheeled friend by instantly turning the cassette player into a Bluetooth receiver! It provides a hands-free solution for phone calls, thanks to the built in microphone and brings music, podcasts, and audiobooks into an older vehicle. RRP: £29.99, available from Currys, Maplin, John Lewis, Halfords, etc.
