5 Gadgets We Want for Christmas

We make our recommendations for the best gadget products every gentleman needs this season.

The season of giving is upon us, and with the gadget and tech world delivering some awesome new items this year, we’ve rounded up some of the coolest and most innovative gizmos that you should consider for your Christmas list.

LG PK7 Bluetooth speaker

Price: R3,200

LG’s boombox-sized speaker is a great step-up for the Bluetooth speaker market. While there are some great options out there, such as JBL’s Flip options and Skullcandy’s Barricade iterations to name some standouts, this larger, but still very-portable speaker packs a huge punch for those bigger events where a little more volume is needed. It also features an IPX5 water resistant rating (making it perfect for a pool party), and a sizable rechargeable battery, giving it a few hours of beat-throwing goodness.

BlackBerry Key2

Price: R7,400

BlackBerry’s recent Android-based devices have got the company back on the smartphone market map, but they’ve yet to have a real hit on their hands since their heyday devices. The Key 2 is aiming to change that, bringing the best of new and old BlackBerry tech together. From an initial glance at the Key 2, it’s clear that BlackBerry isn’t aiming to dethrone the likes of Apple, Samsung, and Huawei, but rather offer something for the working-man, who needs the touch functionality along with the once-beloved BlackBerry keyboard for faster typing and emails. Of course, BlackBerry’s trademark security and encryption technology is all included, making this unrivalled for handling sensitive information and upping productivity on-the-go.

MNMLST Flip card holder

Price: R300

Having an oversized wallet is cumbersome, obtrusive, and to be honest, unnecessary. In the age of mobile payment systems and the declining need for cash, a more streamline and minimal wallet solution is usually the best option; and thankfully, Mnmnlst give you that option. It’s able to hold 6 cards, it’s aluminium design keeps your cards protected against abrasion and  damage, and even includes RFID scanning protection, so that your cards aren’t vulnerable to fraudsters.

Logitech G433 Gaming Headset

Price: R1,590

Logitech’s G433 headset isn’t going to set the world alight with its sound quality (it’s does have impressive 7.1 surround sound, but that’s not the real-kicker); rather, it focuses on function and design, having a felt-like, canvas wrap around the headphones, along with large cups that completely encapsulate your ear without squashing your poor listening-head-flaps. They’re easily one of the more comfortable headphones available for extended gaming sessions, and the attachable microphone makes the G433 a great option for those playing online with friends.

Logitech Powerplay Wireless Charging Mousepad

Price: R5,355

Having a great gaming or Bluetooth mouse is always an added benefit, but having that precision and comfort comes at a price. Having to find AA batteries (are those even still a thing!?) can become tiresome. Thankfully, Logitech has released its Powerplay mousepad, which provides wireless charging to a number of compatible Logitech Bluetooth mouses. Not only that, but it also features a cloth if you prefer a softer surface to the harder standard offering. If you’re a PC gamer who needs your sessions uninterrupted as possible, this may just be the solution.
