Useful gadgets to make your life easier

James Bond. Batman. Wile E. Coyote. What do these great historical figures have in common? They were prepared for all the crazy things life threw at them—thanks to a bunch of awesome gadgets. 

But here’s the thing: You probably don’t have a Batmobile or Wile E. Coyote’s ability to pull a six-foot mallet from your back pocket. So, in order to be prepared for the unpredictable chaos of this world, you might need these.


1. A small yet mighty bottle opener

A bottle opener on your key ring is kind of a no-brainer, but who wants a big ol’ church key bouncing around in their pocket all day?

At the size of a penny, Pry.Me is reportedly the world’s smallest keychain bottle opener. But what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in strength; it’s made of Grade 5 titanium and can hold 164,000x its own weight. 

Best of all, this little guy starts at just $10.99.

 
2. Eleven tools in one wallet-sized package

There are a ton of reasons to carry around a multitool, but one very big reason not to: Most of them are too clunky to fit in a pocket and belt holsters are, uh, a controversial fashion choice. That’s why the designers of this Wallet-Sized Pocket Multi-Tool made theirs the size of a credit card. Now you can fit 11 tools—including a can opener, knife, screwdriver, wrench, saw blade, and more—into your pocket, wallet, or purse.

3. One fine-looking fob

For years, that dinky plastic keychain (which you probably got for free when you opened your checking account) has held your keys, small tools, and maybe a lucky rabbit’s foot. But now it’s time to upgrade. The gorgeous, handmade American Bench Craft Dual Snap Key Fob is made from premium vegetable-tanned leather and high-grade stainless steel. Its double-snap design makes it easy to access the keys you need.

4. Eargasm-inducing Bluetooth headphones

Some headphones sound good. Some headphones feel good. Some headphones look good.

Somehow, the 1Voice Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones pull off all three. With their crisp wireless sound, 5-hour battery, comfortable fit, and all-around handsomeness, you really can’t do any better.

5. Lenses that supercharge your smartphone’s camera

Why carry around a big ‘ol clunker of a camera when this 3-in-1 Universal Smartphone Camera Lens Kit gets you close to the same photographic quality—using only your smartphone? These easily attachable lenses capture 180-degree shots with its fish eye lens, get close-ups of tiny objects with its macro lens, or snap massive landscapes with its wide angle lens.

6. A keychain flashlight with the power of an actual flashlight

The wimpy, low-power flashlight currently bouncing around your bag might as well play its own sad trombone sound effect whenever it powers on. If you’re looking for an upgrade, the Beta-QR Quick Release Keychain Flashlight could be a good option.The quick-release lets you pop it off your keychain in a hurry, and, oh yeah, it’s bright as hell.

Buy now: $52.99, formerly $59


7. A minimalist, thief-thwarting wallet

The worst part about wallets? You have to sit on them. Which is why the HuMN Aluminum RFID-Blocking Mini Wallet is great: It cuts your bulky billfold down to the bare necessities. The sleek, aircraft-grade aluminum holds six cards and blocks RFID scanning to keep your financials secure.

8. A spare battery in your back pocket

Sometimes, your phone dies exactly when you need it most — forcing you to realize that, in 2017, you don’t know very basic things, like your mother’s phone number or where your best friend lives, without it.

Avoid this nightmare scenario by bringing the LithiumCard Wallet Battery wherever you go. It’s as thin as a stack of five credit cards, so it’ll fit in most wallets and its built-in Lightning connector lets you plug in your iOS devices and replenish your battery at the rate of 1 percent per minute.

Buy now: $20, formerly $59.99


9. Keep your crazy keys in line

Have you ever needed to sneak up on a foe (or escape one) only to be thwarted by the jangle of your keys? If so (or, you know, if you just want to organize your keys better), check out KeySmart. It’s a durable, meticulously designed accessory that holds up to 14 keys in one compact, lightweight package. It’s even got an extended frame, so it fits keys of all sizes.

Buy now: $19.99, formerly $21.98


10. Possibly the perfect everyday watch

The Breed Raylan Men’s Watch sports an ultra-durable 316L steel case, full-function tachymeter and chronograph, luminous hands, and a magnified date display. And, it looks super slick, so you’ll be happy to have it on your wrist each day.
