When the weather is chilly, it is time to think about some cold weather preparations. While you are prepping your home for freezing temperatures, you may also want to think about some tech gadgets that you can use this winter to keep you warm and entertained all season long. Here are six examples.
Electronic Hand Sanitizer
Winter and cold weather are ripe with illness. Many people attempt to combat winter sickness with bottle after bottle of hand sanitizer. Instead, consider using a rechargeable electronic hand sanitizer. Not only will it save you money from purchasing hand sanitizer, it will also keep them dry and free from that alcohol smell.
If you are at your computer a lot during the cold winter months, you know how cramped your hands can become after working so hard. Add in the fact that the weather is colder and you have a recipe for really uncomfortable hands. Fortunately, you can now find a warming mouse that you can use to navigate your screen. It may not be helpful with keeping your other hand warm, but it can give you a bit of a warm boost while you work.
Portable Device Battery
A major issue in the cold weather is the exhaustion of battery power on your devices. The cold can have an impact on battery life, so it is important that you are prepared, especially if you are far from home and need to communicate. A portable battery charger can literally be a lifesaver. There are a variety of brands available that are rather inexpensive.
Another thing you should think about is updating your surge protectors. Surge protectors are ideal for plugging in additional heaters, lamps, or other electronic items during the winter. This is a great time to upgrade to surge protectors that also have some USB ports as well as traditional outlets. Many models also swivel so that you can prevent having cords jumbled up on the floor.
USB Heated Gloves
Gloves are always handy when it is chilly, but what about a pair that are heated? You can now purchase gloves that are heated, much like a cozy electric blanket, powered by a USB. There is nothing like warm hands on a freezing day!
Smart Touch Gloves
Staying on gloves, you may also want to get a pair of smart touch gloves. These gloves allow you to easily use your smart phone and other devices without having to remove a glove. This way, your hands stay nice and toasty while you conduct your business on your touch screen devices.
