Affordable Tech Gadgets Perfect for Technophiles
Really cool tech gadgets have the reputation for being hard on the budget. For instance, the latest smartphones have price points that would make even the most devoted techie gasp and it’s easy to drop plenty of coin on the latest and greatest TVs, video game systems and other electronic devices.
Fortunately, if your love of tech is bigger than your wallet these days, you can still find plenty of really cool and feature-packed gadgets that are gentle on your budget. For example, check out the following ideas:
The LG G6 Smartphone
You don’t have to drop $1K to have a really nice smartphone with plenty of bells and whistles. For example, the LG G6 has a nice-sized 5.7-inch display. Thanks to the QHD+ resolution and Dolby Vision™, movies and videos will look and sound great, and since it is water, drop and dust resistance it can withstand a quick dunk into a puddle or other hazards of daily life. The LG G6 also features wide-angle cameras on both the front and back and 32GB of internal memory which will store plenty of apps, photos and more.
GMYLE Power Bank Charger
Finding that your tablet or smartphone has conked out on you is the worst, especially when you are ready to play some games, call your boss or text your buddies. If your Apple and/or Android’s battery is dead, the GMYLE Power Bank Charger will help give it new life. Available for just under $26, the 2,500mAh Wallet Sized Power Bank features built-in charging for both Apple and Android devices and can easily be tucked away in a pocket or wallet when not in use. Yes, you read that correctly — at 3.7 inches by 2.4 inches by 0.2 inches, the GMYLE Wallet Sized Power Bank is the smallest and thinnest charger on the market and can fit into your wallet.
Revolving Outlets with Surge Protectors
As a devoted technophile, you undoubtedly have plenty of gadgets that need to be plugged in. But, as you probably know quite well, it can be hard to fit more than one bulky plug into an outlet. You can solve this pesky problem by buying a 3-pack of Revolve Surge Protectors with four outlets and two USB ports. Available online from QVC for about $50, you can plug the device into an outlet and then have the ability to plug in four devices plus two gadgets that need USB charging; as a literal twist, the outlets spin a full 360 degrees to whatever angle you need, allowing you to fit even chunky chargers into it.
Google Home Mini
If you are a devout fan of Google and its many gadgets, you’ll be sure to love their take on Amazon’s Echo Dot. Available for around $30 at Best Buy, the Google Home Mini is powered by the Google Assistant, so you can ask it questions and tell it to do things for you. As a neat bonus, the Google Home Mini can tell your voice from others in your home, so you’ll get a more personalized response. From controlling what you are listening to and placing orders and more, the Google Home Mini will get to work with a simple “Okay Google” comment.
Whether you are treating yourself to some fun new gadgets or looking for cool gifts for your fellow technophile friends, it is definitely easy to find great stuff that won’t break the bank.
