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.

Promising review: "I'll say it again; this is an electronic Swiss army knife. It's perfect for travel and I absolutely love it. " —Charles Spanky

Price: $40

2. This flexible stand ($35) for your tablet/phone that can wrangle itself into any position.

Promising review: "This stand is 100% flexible so it is easy to use when I watch TV in bed, type on the couch, or do homework on my tablet on airplanes. It easily shapes to whatever position I want and is simple to use with amazing results." —Morgan Goldstein

Price: $35

3. This easy-to-install smart light switch ($40) that fits right over your existing one.

Promising review: "They can be set on a timer, or turned on based on the proximity of your mobile device to your home (so the lights are already on when you arrive). They can also be set to randomly turn on and off so it appears someone is home if, say, you were away on vacation. Aesthetically, they add depth to your light switch, but are by no means unattractive. You can still manually manipulate your switch with a simple push. Overall, I am a VERY happy customer."


Price: $40

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

Price: $16

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

Price: $35

6. This thermal imager ($235) for your phone so you can see what's hot and what's not.

Promising review: "This is an awesome tool for trouble shooting almost every thing. I love it. I located the clog in my sewer lines. Poured boiling water down the drain and looked for the transition between hot and cold and where the clog was."–Scott

Price $235

7. This water resistant speaker ($81) that you can take to the beach, river, or your shower.

Promising review: "Compact, easy to carry around, great sound, loud, great bass, durable, great battery life, easy to use and water resistant. Can't ask for more." –Bruno Campelo Souza

Price: $81

8. A desk lamp ($20) that has USB ports for charging your devices.

Promising review: "Overall I'm quite pleased with the charger. I also like the large base on it and rubberized bottom which keep this charger from sliding around. It gives me a semi-permanent charging station which is quite convenient to have on my desk." –Joel Avrunin


9. A digital kitchen scale ($20) to precisely measure your ingredients like a scientist.

Promising review: "The more I use this scale, the more I like it. It is an attractive scale with a bowl that works well for both dieting and baking. My usual scales were the flat platform type, and adding the nicely shaped steel bowl makes ALL the difference." –Joanna Daneman

Price: $20

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

Price: $15

11. A smartphone mount ($15) for your bike/stroller so you can keep one eye on the map for Pokémon.

Promising review: "The two adjustable clamps on the side do most of the work, but then there is what is essentially a heavy-duty rubber band holding your phone as well. This secures the phone from all four corners, and with the clamp on the side of the phone, your phone isn't going anywhere unless you want it to." –Jordan

Price: $15

12. A four pack of waterproof cases ($16) to protect your phone from spontaneous snorkel trips.

Promising review: "I feel like the most important part of a review of a waterproof case is whether or not it was waterproof, and these cases passed that test with flying colors. I didn't have any water leak in during a couple of hours of snorkeling." –Hutch Family

Price: $16

13. A key fob ($60) that automatically locks your computer when you walk away from it.

Promising review: "This is one of the simplest and most effective security systems for a personal PC, I've ever encountered." –Joseph Spiegel

Price: $60

14. A classy looking watch ($150) that is a low-key fitness and sleep tracker.

Promising review: "The watch band is aesthetically appealing and comfortable. The visual profile online makes it look thicker than it is, it looks very much like a regular watch on my wrist." –Reviewer

Price: $150

15. This tiny action camera ($150) that has a strong magnet on the bottom for easy mounting.

Promising review: "I'm new to 'action' cameras and I considered purchasing a GoPro instead. But given the Polaroid Cube Plus (+)'s cheaper price point and excellent video quality, I don't regret my decision at all." –M. Chu

Price: $150

16. This audio adapter ($40) that lets you pair your Bluetooth headphones/speakers to any audio source.

Promising review: "I was very impressed with this product. The ease of connection and the quality of sound are amazing! Purchasing this will also help keep money in your pocket. Rather than spending hundreds of dollars on a new Bluetooth enabled MP3 player, stereo, etc., you can keep what you have and spend considerably less money on this. " –alireno
