4. Bedside wireless charging radio alarm clock for stress-free waking up
This versatile radio alarm clock combines a few welcoming functions you need by your bed. First, you can set a 5-level dimmable LED display to prevent bright light from startling you at night.

Review: “I bought this to replace an older style radio alarm clock. It is easy to set up, a nice neat smaller unit than the previous one with the added bonus of a wireless charge point for an iPhone 8 (or later model). If you have an earlier iPhone you will need to purchase an adaptor (still wireless) but it plugs into the charge port of the phone instead of the lead when charging. The radio has a good sound quality, the illuminated clock can be dimmed on several settings or completely off. I’m extremely pleased with the unit.” brian groves
5. Smart reusable notebook for writing, saving, and erasing data over and over again
This smart reusable notebook by Rocketbook is an environment-friendly gadget everyone should know about.

6. Electric potato peeler for easy vegetable and fruit peeling
The electric potato peeler by Aisaving can help you prepare fruits and vegetables for eating or further processing, hassle-free. Its movable needle, peeler arm, and bottom holder fix and peel the content in seconds. And the appliance preserves the nutritious part of the fruit and vegetable by paring only the skin, leaving everything else intact. Finally, you can power the peeler with a 6V adapter charger or 4 AA batteries.
Review: “This is so much better than hand peeling. Even if this were to break after 3 or 4 months I would buy another one and still count it as money well spent. Still using the first blade and haven’t had to change it. Have done potatoes and mangoes and both get peeled very well, even when it hits a bit it can’t cut through it’ll still do 80% of the peeling and you can have the next one peeling while you tidy that one up. Prep is so much faster.” Aileen B

Review: “We have 3 cats, so we’re always looking for something that can give us an edge in the fight against fur, particularly downstairs, where the cats spend most of their time. This little robot is just the best! When I first got it I ran it right away with the small amount of charge it comes with, and while it only ran for about 30 minutes on ‘standard’ suction, it managed to fill up most of its container with hair!” Sinerider

This charger seemed to meet all my needs especially to charge the latest TomTom GPS units [Go Discover] that require a higher rate of charge than most. It’s a compact charger that comes with plug combinations that meet my needs fully and are simple to change from one electrical plug to another.
It’s met my requirements so far and I have no reason to believe it will not do so when abroad.
Comes highly recommended.” Mr. Elton V. Thomas

10. Coffee mug warmer for having your favorite drink stay warm for longer
How many times have you prepared a coffee or another hot drink only to have something prevent you from drinking until it cools down? Well, your troubles end with Yurnero’s coffee mug warmer, which is easy to use. This useful Amazon Choice gadget keeps your drinks warm for a prolonged time, whether it’s coffee, hot chocolate or cocoa, or something else. You can choose to warm up the beverage by touching the button once or keep its temperature between 104°F and 140°F (40℃ and 60℃) by touching it twice. And the mug warmer is portable, so you can take it with you wherever you go.
Review: “The power switch at the front of the top is superb and is flush and touch-sensitive, requiring no pressure to activate. Each touch scrolls through high temp (red) > low temp (blue) > off (off) and back again. The unit also shuts off automatically after 8 hours, which is a nice safety feature. I left a cup of coffee on this for over an hour and when I tested it the coffee was at a perfect drinking temperature. I’m not sure I’ll ever use the low temp setting but it’s nice to have.” Peter Williams
