There are tons of the coolest gadgets for men out there. You might have heard about Kickstarter and IndieGoGo, many new technology are coming out of their yards. Thus, it can be a tough question to answer which gadgets are, actually in fact, cool. We have seen many new crazy tech come out recently, and some of these solve a common problem men might have.
So without further words, here are the list of top 10 best gadgets that a man desires to have in its place.
1. LightMate Emergency LED Flash Light
The Satechi LightMate Emergency LED Flash Light is much more than just a flash light. In fact, Satechi’s only mistake with this flash light is that they didn’t name it something like the Smart Light. This cool gadget has a ton of practical applications. First and foremost, of course, it has a super-bright LED light that’s safe (plastic), long lasting and highly visible. The light has 5 different modes, including bright, medium, dim, SOS and strobe. Secondly, it contains a 2200mAh portable power bank with a USB charging port and cable for emergency cell phone charging. It’s also waterproof and highly durable, with a nice weight to it. Finally, it also has a high-strength pointed alloy steel emergency glassbreaker in case you ever need it. The only situation I can imagine needing it is during a zombie apocalypse and you’re trying to break glass to grab an axe. At least, that’s the scenario I have worked out in my head. Still, the LightMate Emergency Flash Light makes a great gift for campers, travelers or anyone that frequently uses a flash light.
2. Izon Wi-Fi Video Monitor
The Izon Stem White Wi-Fi Video Monitor Surveillance Cam is one of those cool gadgets for home security. If you’re frequently away from your home, and you want to check in to see what’s going on, the Izon will allow you to do just that right from your smartphone. You can place the camera anywhere near any outlet in your house, and once it’s connected to your home’s wireless internet, you can view what the camera is seeing and hear what’s going on in the room right from your smartphone. If you’re wondering how it compares to the Oco, the Izon has a bit higher quality, and is slimmer.
3. Nyrius Aries Home+ Wireless HDMI Transmitter
The Nyrius Aries Home+ is one of the coolest gadgets I own. It’s especially great if you’re a gamer and have kids. What the Aries Home does is allow you to wirelessly stream any HDMI-capable device — like your Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, BluRay, etc — to a second device, so that if your kids or someone else is occupying the living room TV, you can still use your gaming consoles or media players on another TV without having to go through the painful process of unplugging them from one TV and bringing them to another. The Nyrius Aries streams your content, flawlessly, laglessly and in full 1080p HD to another TV. I have my Xbox One and PS4 both plugged into it in case one of my kids is occupying the TV so that I can always game when I want to. Don’t let the higher price tag fool you — it’s much cheaper than buying a second gaming console. So if you’re wondering how to wirelessly transmit your gaming console or PC to another TV, check out the Aries Home+.
4. Divoom Voombox
Hey, guess what? It’s summertime! It’s time to be outdoors with Bluetooth Speaker! And one of the cool gadgets that are necessary for the outdoorsy type of man is the Divoom Voombox Portable Wireless Speaker. The speaker connects to your devices effortlessly through Bluetooth, and the quality is absolutely astonishing. The Voombox blows many of the other wireless speakers out of the water when it comes to audio quality, especially the Westinghouse Unplug speaker that I’ve been recommending to everyone. The Voombox has a lot of boom for your buck, is water resistant, and is an especially great summer gadget for impromptu jam sessions, beach days, while you’re working on the car in the garage, or deck parties.
Price: $79.90 (20 percent off MSRP)
5. Logitech Harmony Home Control
Do yourself a favor and throw your basic $4 universal remote in the garbage can — that’s not a man-approved remote control, sorry. And, let’s face it, you lose it all too often anyway. One cool gadget you need in your life is a Logitech Harmony Home Control, a universal smart remote and base that allows you to use your smartphone as a remote as well. The device not only works with the majority of your entertainment devices, but also your home automation devices like Philips Hue or Nest Learning Thermostat (so you can lower the lights or change the temperature without even leaving your seat). The Logitech Harmony Home control works with over 270,000 devices, including TVs, satellite and cable boxes, blu-ray players, Apple TV, Roku, Sonos, Xbox, Philips Hue and more. So if you want to control the world around you without having to get up, pick up the Logitech Harmony Home Control — you’ll feel like a wizard!
6. Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker
Making an espresso using a standard, cheap espresso maker gives you an unlikely chance of actually getting a great cup of espresso. But Nespresso has fixed that problem with the Nespresso Pixie Espress Maker. It basically works like a Keurig does for coffee, but instead of coffee it takes espresso pods. The Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker will deliver an espresso to you using one of the capsules (think K-Cups) with a flawless espresso every time. So if you’re done trying to make your own espressos with some crappy espresso maker, pick up a Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker.
Price: $183.24 (20 percent off MSRP)
7. TrackR StickR
You likely lose your wallet, smartphone, keys and/or remote control frequently. Losing things is normal. But instead of dealing with the frustrations of losing these items, there’s a better way to cope: the TrackR StickR. Where are the keys? Where did you put your wallet? Where is your phone? Trackr solves that problem. It is a quarter-sized device that can be fastened to any item, and then users are able to use the companion app to find whatever the device is attached to. When you lose your wallet, you simply pull up the app on your smartphone and you can make the StickR beep. You can also set up the app to alert you when you venture too far from it, and can use the TrackR StickR to also find your phone, even if it is on silent. It works with both iOS and Android. I have one attached to my remote control so I never have to worry about losing it.
Notion is a home intelligence system that was recently funded on Kickstarter that uses a small, smart, multi-function sensor to detect quite a significant number of things in your home: a water leak, when a door/cabinet opens and closes, temperature and sound. When any of these things are detected, Notion will send a message to your smartphone (works with both iOS and Android). For example, if you place a Notion on your front door, it can tell you if someone knocks, if the door is opened, or if it doesn’t get shut. Its potential uses are incredible. If you put it on, say a liquor cabinet, it can tell you when that cabinet is opened. It also has a temperature sensor and can tel you if your house is getting too hot or too cold when you’re away from home. It isn’t yet available, but it is expected to ship in July.
Price: $99 for 1 Hub and 1 Sensor
9. Koala Tablet Wall Mount Dock by Dockem
Ever lay in bed at night with your tablet binge-watching your backlog of shows and movies on Netflix and realize just how uncomfortable it is to have to hold the tablet while you watch? You need a tablet wall mount, and the easiest one to set up is the Koala Tablet Wall Mount Dock by Dockem. It works with virtually all tablets — both iOS and Android devices — and is easily set up in seconds. There are no screws or holes required, as it simply uses damage-free 3M Command adhesive strips for mounting, allowing you to mount it virtually anywhere in your home. Whether you need your tablet in the bedroom, garage, bathroom or kitchen, the Koala Tablet Wall Mount Dock can be placed anywhere. And, it’s cheap enough so that it makes a great gift for her on a budget.
Price: $15.49 (48 percent off MSRP)
10. Sun Joe Electric Lawn Mower
The Sun Joe MJ401E Mow Joe 14-Inch Electric Lawn Mower is the perfect pick for those that want to save some money and have a small lawn. Even though it only has a 14″ blade, the Sun Joe electric lawn mower will still get the job done quickly thanks to its easy maneuverability and compact size. This is one lean, mean green mowing machine that doesn’t quit. The best part about it? You won’t have to frequently run to the gas station for gas or oil, since it runs solely on electricity. It may not be the best-looking lawn mower available — it almost looks like a toy in the pictures — but it definitely does the job, and it’s reliable. The fact that it comes in at just over $100 is a big selling point, too. If you use the Sun Joe MJ401E as it is intended to be used — frequently and on generally well-maintained lawns — it can be one of the best mowers available for those on a budget.
