What's up friends, glad to have you guys back. So I hope you're having a great holiday season so far and that you bought everything that you need on Black Friday, but if you need some last minute gift ideas, this is the post to read.
So the products that I choice for this post are ones that I've been using personally for the past few months and I really love them.
So whether you're looking for something for yourself or for your techie friend, I'm sure you're going to love them as well.
So without further wasting time, let's get started.
So the first thing on the list is the Orbitkey Nest. This is essentially a box for you to put all your daily use items in it, so that you can be all neat and organized. So inside the case, you can see how you can organize your daily items.
So you can open the case by just flipping it, open or you can actually take the entire case off by pulling it vertically. So, that is very cool in design. It's helped by this little part over here.
So inside you can have your AirPods, SD card case, eyedrops, glasses, SSD, and some pack of gum.
And this is all neatly organized by these dividers in here. So it's actually like a Velcro situation where you can customize it and stick it anywhere. And it's surprisingly really strong.
So when you put your stuff inside and then put the case on and shake it all around, like when it's in your bag or whatever, it is still the same.
Also on the top, there's a lot of slots for your SD card, your business card, and in this flexible net part over here, you can have what every man should have nowadays: alcohol wipes.
So, that's been very useful. So, this desk organizer is supposed to live on your desk.
And the awesome thing is that it also acts as a desk tray where you can put your daily EDC on and it's going to look sweet, especially with this soft leather hop over here.
And the most super cool techiest part of this entire rig is that you can actually plug it in on the side, and this part over here becomes a wireless charging pad for your phone. So, this gadget is definitely super feature-packed.
And when you want to take it on the go, you just put on the elastic string over here to secure it and you can put it in your bag or bring it to wherever you want.
So the mobility part is super cool as well. It acts as that everyday case for your everyday things.
Omnicharge Mobile 12800
And next up, a lot of people have been asking us which portable battery we use 'cause they always see this one in the post. So this is a tank. It's by Omnicharge. However, we don't actually bring this out with us 'cause it's fricking heavy.
So lately we've been using the Omnicharge portable battery pack that they have. It's a lot smaller and a lot easier to bring out with us on an everyday basis.
Now, the cool thing is that it can actually power devices up to 60 watts. So a 13-inch Macbook Pro would work with this charger, that's sweet.
And of course it has wireless charging on top here as well. So really what it does is that it charges your devices really quickly, it's feature-packed, and it's built like a tank.
I've flipped this round, dropped this around everywhere and it's still okay. So if you're looking for a portable charger, this is it.
Lepow Portable Monitor
And the next item is a portable monitor. So these are super useful. we've used them in many situations. It acts as a another screen. And this particular one is by Lepow. It's a 15-inch monitor.
So the awesome thing about this monitor is that you don't have to bring in extra power supply.
If you're using a USB type C to connect to your computer, it will power the monitor itself. So again, less cables, less mess. And the screen itself is actually quite decent.
The monitor is very bright. All the colors are very vibrant and you can adjust it a lot in the settings.
We wouldn't use this particular model for professional work, but if you're gaming or just reading documents, web browsing, watching movies, this monitor will be very good for those situations.
And when you want to pack up and go, you simply just pull the cable, fold the case up like this, and you're ready to go. So, moving along.
BenQ Screen Light Bar Plus
The next product is BenQ Screen Light Bar Plus. It's essentially a Desk Lamp, which lives on your monitor. So, we've been using this for a few months. we actually stole it from my friends set up 'cause we loved it so much.
This lights up everything on your desk, so it makes it easier to see. This is really important and useful if we do a lot of writing or reading on your desk so that it won't strain your eye.
And since it lives on the monitor, it saves a ton of desk space so that you can have a clean clutter-free setup.
Grovemade Desk Pads
And moving along, the next thing that has really improved my Desk set up are Desk mats.
I really recommend having it this pad because, one, it protects your Desk, two, it actually kind of organizes your mouse and keyboard into a section so that that space is dedicated for that.
And you can also shift everything on the Mat aside at once, instead of moving things individually, when you need the extra Desk space for when you're writing or reading.
And finally, it just looks good on your Desk. It gives it a more sophisticated look, some character.
It's like a Desk accessory. Well, that's exactly what it is. So we've been using the one by Grovemade, and after a month of using them, I can definitely recommend them.
The extra-large mat Desk pad is super low maintenance. When you spill stuff on it or when there's dust, it's very easy to clean right off and it looks brand new.
And as for the wool pad, it's super soft on your hands. And like for myself, I'm someone who sweats a lot when I'm gaming.
So the wool actually absorbs all that. And it has no stains or marks. And it's kind of nasty, but yeah, it's super durable and it feels really nice. So of course there's different brands of Desk pads out there.
You can choose the one that you like. All we're saying is that having a Desk pad on your Desk is really nice.
Satechi Desktop Charger
So next up we have the Satechi Desk charger. So we've been using this charger for nine months now. It powers all my devices. It's my charging station for everything. They also have a mini version of this but it only has three ports.
But for myself, I like having four ports so I can charge more because we actually use this when we travel as well.
So when we're packing, we don't have to bring multiple chargers. This is enough for all our needs.
Nomad Base Station Pro
And if you want to be all minimalist and simple and wire-free, this is the Nomad Base Station Pro. So this is the most advanced wireless charger that we've seen on the market.
You know how annoying normal wireless charger is? You've got to find the right spot for your coil to align with your device.
This actually has 18 coils built into here, and when you put your device on it, it actually has an algorithm to find your device's coil so that you can place it anywhere on the mat and it will simply charge.
And the cool thing about this is that you can actually charge up to three devices at a time. But besides it's wireless charging magical powers, this also looks really good.
It's really nice having this because you can simply just place it without worrying that's not going to charge, and all my devices are ready to go. we are ready to take on the world.
And we don't know if it's just us, but my battery always has to be at 100% when I get out of the house.
we don't know. Is it just us? Let us know if you're like that too in the comments below.
And next on the list is one of my beloved items that we recommend to everyone. It's the Ember Mug.
So, this is like a high-tech smart mug which detects when you put hot liquid inside, it'll start heating it up to your desired temperature that and you can play around with in an app.
So basically this is a mug that keeps your drink hot. So the cool thing is that although I've been using it for two years, the battery is still relatively the same. It can keep my drink hot for 30 minutes.
And if 30 minutes isn't long enough for you, there's also a wireless charger on the back which you can put on the plate that it comes with. And while it's on there, you can heat up your drink for as long as you want.
So if you like someone who likes hot drinks and likes to keep their drinks hot, this is something you should definitely get for them. we're sure they'll love it, and they'll love you even more than they already do, we hope.
Orbitkey Key Oarganiser
And next we have this Orbitkey key organizer. we've been using this for a long time. It keeps your keys all organized. And this is something I highly recommended.
It's something that I wish I got sooner 'cause it just organizes my keys. It's not dangling everywhere. And this is the Crazy-Horse edition.
The leather is real nice. It's very durable. This is actually quite affordable. It's like 30 to 40 bucks.
So, if you know a guy or girl who has a lot of keys that need a bit of help organizing it, it's a really nice thing to have.
And lastly, of course, all techies need storage. And here we have the SSDs from SanDisk. So, we've been using this one for the past year and a bit. This holds 500 gigabytes. However, we got this one recently.
This is the upgraded version of this because, it can write and read twice as fast.
So this time we did get the two terabyte version because it's been so useful for us. So right now, we mainly edit my post straight out of this drive.
It's super fast. All our transfer speeds are really fast. we don't have to wait as long to load in my post now. And these are just really nice to bring around.
So, when we do end up traveling in the future, we can bring these to edit instead of the hard drive that we normally use.
And these are built like a tank. I think they're water-resistant, drop-resistant. As a blogger, we wish we got this sooner.
It's a really good investment that we can use for a really long time. And it's something that we love to use.
So, if you've been hesitating on getting one of these bad boys for yourself or your work, we can tell you from experience that these are definitely worth the investment.
