Those on the go will love Solpro Charger. Unlike other chargers, this compact device can power various gadgets, including laptops, smartphones and tablets. This means that you will no longer have to carry a separate charger for each of your devices. Better still, Solpro is environmentally-friendly, as it sources energy directly from the sun.
Wocket Smart Wallet
If you are fed up with the number of cards in your wallet, you are not the only one. Wocket wallet makes managing your finances easier than ever by letting you store all your business and debit cards on a programmable Wocket card. Once all your data is stored on the device, you can select to use any of your cards whenever you want. The gadget can store up to 10,000 cards, including loyalty cards and voter cards, and is protected by biometric security protocols, which means that nobody can access it without a fingerprint confirmation.
Noise Canceling Headphones
Unwanted noise, such as noisy co-workers or even the hum of an air conditioner, can make focusing on a task pretty much impossible. This is when wearing noise canceling headphones can be a game changer. Designed to block out distractions, the headphones continuously measure external noise and cancel it with opposing sound waves.

Just like a traditional ball point pen, only better, Echo Smartpens not only let you jot down notes but also transfer them to an Echo desktop. Unlike normal pens, they can also capture audio. This is an amazing innovation for professionals who don’t want to carry a stack of notes and files around. Some smartpen models even feature Bluetooth connectivity.
