|Newseego Smartphone Finger Sleeve||MyGadget Carrying Hard Case||iSOUL Stylus Touchscreen Pen||HORI Switch Compact PlayStand||LENCENT USB Multiport Plug||Lamicall Phone Ring Holder||JBL T110 Pure||Amazon Basics AAA Rechargeable Batteries|
|This is a gift that should appeal to gamers all over the world. These sleeves have everything to please, starting with their great compatibility with games available on Android and IOS.||This is the ultimate useful gadget. It protects your headphones. But, above all, it allows you to keep their wire properly untangled so that you can avoid this (unfortunately) well-known inconvenience.||Surfing on your smartphone or tablet while pretending to keep the traditional technique of the good old pen on paper is now possible thanks to the high-precision stylus from Isoul.||Foldable and offering several angles of inclination, this stand will certainly appeal to hardened Switch players as it will allow them to play anywhere, anytime!||Affordable and compact, it is perfect if you want to charge several low-power devices simultaneously. In addition, it automatically identifies the current to be supplied.||With its optimal compatibility, this ring is not only sleek and stylish, but it is also practical. Watching a video, taking a picture or simply holding your smartphone has never been so safe.||For those who are champions of forgetting and misplacing, it's best to opt for cheap wired headphones that can be replaced easily and without breaking the bank. And for that, what better than JBL in the field?||It can be disappointing to receive a gift only to find that the batteries are not included... To avoid this, you can include them with your main gift, whether it's a toy or a high-tech item.|
They are compact, yet powerful, as they are designed to enhance the gaming experience of our gamers. Not only do they adapt to the shape of your fingers, but they also prevent them from sweating thanks to their conductive fibre and spandex design. So if grip is no longer an issue, hours of gaming may be more of an issue as you’re not about to say goodbye to your blue screen.
How many times have you found your headphones tangled in the bottom of your bag or pocket when you’ve just spent your time untangling them? Well, we’ve stopped counting! Made from a neoprene fabric that protects against dust, moisture and dirt, this case is available in a range of colours and boasts universal compatibility. It also contains a net that allows you to store wireless headphones and even SD/Micro SD cards. A nice touch.
It looks like any other pen at first glance, but it’s not: made from solid aluminium, this pen comes with a traditional tip and a disc-shaped tip, for the most adjustable precision on the blue screen. So let the “it was better before” enthusiasts be reassured, the pen is not – yet – obsolete. It just opens up new dimensions.
It effectively allows you to raise the console at 3 different angles, without preventing you from loading it. It can also be folded for easy storage and transportation. And once unfolded, its 4 rubber feet ensure its stability, effectively reducing vibrations and the risk of accidental slipping. A must-have for Nintendo’s little console addicts.
Compact and lightweight, this model has four mounted USB ports and a maximum power of 24W with a wide voltage range (100-240V). You can charge up to four low-power devices. However, it is not suitable for more powerful devices. In terms of safety, it protects your devices from overcharging, overheating and short circuits. It also identifies the type of device to provide an optimal charging current. Finally, it comes with a small storage bag for easy transport.
This gadget convinced us so much that we already presented it to you in our selection of gift ideas for men. What more can we say except that its 3M adhesive, its 360° rotation and its simple but elegant design have definitely won us over?
Although not as effective as some of the competition, these headphones stand out for their hands-free function, their remote control, their flat cable, which is more practical for everyday use, and above all their very affordable price. And in our tests, their performance was perfectly usable for the majority of songs, except for those focused on bass.
Whether you’re powering a toy, home decor or another electronic device, these rechargeable AAA batteries won’t let you down. What’s more, they come already pre-charged so you can use them straight away. Note that you can also get the charger that goes with them either alone or directly together with other sizes.
High tech gifts under £20
|Best under £20||For drivers||For lovers of big plans||For minimalists||For presentations||For geeks||For photographers|
|ABYstyle - Harry Potter Thermally Reactive Mug||RAMPOW USB Car Charger||MyGadget Smartphone Camera Lens Kit||TRAVANDO RFID Blocking Credit Card Holder||Amazon Basics USB PC-Speakers||Paladone Toad Mushroom Light||Amazon Basics - MicroSDXC|
|Geek or physicist at heart? This gift should satisfy you! This mug inspired by the famous wizard only needs to hold a hot beverage for the Marauder's map to reveal all its secrets...||Although it is becoming increasingly rare, some of us still drive cars where the USB port is not an option. At a time when the smartphone is becoming more and more important, this is almost unbearable.||A 'gadget' is generally a compact device intended to provide an efficient service for more or less superfluous needs (let's face it!), and these lenses are the perfect and indispensable embodiment of this.||This minimalist wallet could prove to be very useful if you are tired of overflowing models. It's an additional advantage? Effective protection for your electronic data.||If the birthday boy or girl often has presentations to make and needs a new, lightweight sound system to take with him or her everywhere, then this little speaker is just what he or she needs.||Suitable for all ages, this lamp with the appearance of a mushroom straight out of the world of Super Mario is likely to make little ones happy... But also among the older ones, we are sure!||This microSD card is ideal for photographers who want to edit their photos without breaking the bank on basic equipment (especially if it's free).|
Solemnly swear that your intentions are evil, or drink your drink cold! If you haven’t already figured it out, this 460ml ceramic mug is designed to change its appearance when you pour hot liquid into it. Here, Potterheads will have the chance to see the Marauder’s Map appear before their eyes. Did you say spell?
It’s a gadget you wouldn’t want to be without, especially if you’re a music lover. Ultra-slim and with two USB ports delivering up to 24W, it’s also very safe as the power strip is designed to offer effective resistance to short circuits, overloads and surges. So, why not take advantage of it?
Like the light ring, they sit on top of your smartphone in the area of the rear camera. While they are super compact in size, they are nonetheless powerful in use. There are three distinct lenses here, including a fish eye, a 15x macro lens and a panoramic lens. So you can take nice pictures!
The case is compact (it fits in a trouser pocket), yet functional, as it can hold up to 12 cards at a time. To take them out, simply pull on the tab provided. A real bonus is the RFID protection that actively combats hacking and the reading of electronic data. In this day and age, that’s no mean feat…
This small speaker is very popular with users and provides better sound than the standard PC speaker. It’s 1.2W and simply plugs into your computer via a USB cable. It also has a small blue light so you can spot it in the dark if you are giving a presentation with the lights off.
Yes, this lamp will appeal to many. If the world of Super Mario holds no secrets for you, you probably recognise the famous mushroom that makes you speed up or gives you an extra life (only in video games, unfortunately). Available in 11.5 x 10.5 cm, it is sure to delight fans of the most famous moustachioed Italian plumber of his generation. You’ll just need to include 2 AAA batteries with your purchase.
This microSDXC card is full of good surprises. Indeed, it has good grades as explained above, but also very good resistance to shocks, temperatures (from -10°C to 80°C) and an IPX6 certification protecting it from water projections coming from all directions. In addition to this, it has the A2 standard which makes it better than its competitor from SanDisk. As for the speeds, the theoretical reading speed of 100 MB/s remains at 96 MB/s in the test and the writing speed is 41 MB/s for its theoretical 60 MB/s (which remains within the norm). Small bonus: the box includes an SD adapter.
