Amazon has a list of products called “Movers and Shakers,” which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently ~trending~.
Here are some of the coolest and most useful tech products and gadgets found on the list this week:
1. This mini external battery ($40) that can also act as a Wi-Fi router when you're traveling.
2. This flexible stand ($35) for your tablet/phone that can wrangle itself into any position.
3. This easy-to-install smart light switch ($40) that fits right over your existing one.
4. These Bluetooth earbuds ($16) that will help you prepare for our new headphone jack-less future.
Promising review: "Comfortable and easy to use. Fit well and stay put even if I shake my head hard. Noise canceling, so your music/calls aren't competing with background noise. It took me a couple of minutes to figure out the pairing, but once I got it, it was super easy. Volume controls on the ear pieces make it easy to adjust the volume without fumbling around looking for the cord." –V K M
5. This sleek portable battery ($35) that can charge your phone up to seven times.
Promising review: "The dual USB ports charged two iPads at the same time, much faster than plugging in a typical laptop's USB port, that's for sure. Of course, it's another thing to lug around, but if you value longer use of your device over backpack space, then it's light enough and thin enough to get the job done." –Kestrel831
6. This thermal imager ($235) for your phone so you can see what's hot and what's not.
7. This water resistant speaker ($81) that you can take to the beach, river, or your shower.
8. A desk lamp ($20) that has USB ports for charging your devices.
9. A digital kitchen scale ($20) to precisely measure your ingredients like a scientist.
10. A six pack of snap bracelets ($15) that light up for night walks.
Promising review: "I love the design of the lights. Just a slap bracelet that lights up completely. This is perfect for safety while walking at night. I gave my roommate two of the bracelets so she can safely walk to work in the early morning before the sun is up. My husband uses them when he rides his bike at night, which is required in our state." –LadyBlooding
