Essential tech goodies you need

Heading out for the day, weekend or a holiday there is always a couple of gadgets that I take with me.  Relying on my phone so much now to not only keep in contact for work but also for navigation, a phone and a camera the worry of a flat battery when I need it can be yes a real first world problem.  No one likes the low battery anxiety feels!  So a Powerbank is essential.  Also I take my tech goods everywhere and without my sleeves a relaxing day at the beach or couple of hours by the pool just isn't going to happen.
Below is some of my current faves in the tech accessories must haves. All are really reasonably priced and will be worth gold.
Don't forget to check out the give away below!

Must Have Tech Gadgets & Giveaway


Laser Rugged Powerbank

I'm sure this powerbank was made with me in mind, I can throw it in my handbag, back pack or sports bag and its always good to go. I've dropped it a couple of times and it has survived thanks to its rubber exterior and i've even got it wet a few times (as in splashed) and its all ok. There is a torch built in which is handy when camping or walking in the dark.  For $24.95 its certainly worth the investment so you can take your photos and use your maps and make phone calls on a day out and about. With 2,200mAh of power you can be low battery anxiety free!





Laser Smart Sleeves

Have you even taken your phone or tablet to the beach to take photos and keep memories of a lovely family experience and completely stressed out because sand and water is the last thing you want in your phone or tablet. Ever thought you'd go to the beach and read your ebook ..... not that relaxing huh! Sand is like the worst for phones and tablets.
Kinda same scenario with water.  "Mum, mum take a photo of me jumping in the pool" ....  great idea long as your phone doesn't get splashed! or how about selfies in the pool and trying to do it with wet hands. Its inevitable isn't it? Your phone is going to get wet.  I'm telling you head down to BigW and pick up a couple of these Laser Smart Sleeves! Made for smart phones and tablets, these transparent bags seal your much-loved tech securely, making it waterproof and resistant to dirt, dust and sand. They are RRP $12.95 (small or large smart phones) RRP $15.95 (10-inch tablets). Peace of mind is better than destroyed drowned phone believe me!



Laser PBCJ6000 Power Bank and Car Jump Starter

This 6,000mAh power bank not only charges any USB device, it can jump start your car battery in a flash thanks to a set of jumper cables. Does that sound crazy to you? It totally blew my mind that a battery pack can jumps start the car! Its really reasonably sized it fits perfectly in the glove box or middle console of your car and you know you could carry it in your back pack and completely forget it was there (as i did). Featuring a high intensity LED light with strobe function, this is the ultimate gadget to remain connected and have on hand for those unplanned flat battery nightmares. Essential for Camping, hiking, fishing trips or .... maybe a flat battery at school pick up time. You can find these at with a RRP of $79.95






Laser Bluetooth Tracker

Do you lose your keys?  Lost a dog?  Forget where you put your purse?  This Bluetooth Tracker thing is cool you just put the app on your phone and the little tracker thing on the item you don't want to lose and if you ever become separated the app will alert you or worse you actually lose your item you can track it down where you last left it.  I put it on my daughters "Bunny" (toy bunny not a real one) recently when we went on holidays. Her security blanket and best friend that has been such a massive part of our lives the last four years we would all be so devastated to lose. She enough we put it down in a cafe on the other side of the country, lucky we hadn't gone far when I realised and tracked it easily. Poor "Bunny" was in so much trouble for staying behind.  I need about a million more of these so I can track where my kids leave ... bags, footy boots, drink bottles, clothes and possibly themselves.  Big W has these for a RRP of $19.95



NAVSPORT Sport Action Camera

Hate the kids using your phone, camera, tablet or GoPro?   Yep I cringe when the kids ask if they can "just borrow" my well anything really but in particular my tech goods. So when I got this camera I thought great its something I can relax and let them go free with. There is Helmet and handlebar mounts and lots of accessories to help you get the camera exactly where you need it.   Now its not an expensive outdoor camera so you can let the kids go wild with it but also don't expect professional looking shots from it.   It is a 720p high definition with a 2-inch LCD screen. My kids were a little disappointed with the quality of the images from their bikes and skateboard but the underwater shots turned out awesome. They have had a brilliant few months with it in the lake and pool taking photos and videos. You can also view and review footage which is handy when out and about. We've loved having a NAVSPORT to use with our water sports this Summer.  You can check them out at Target this NAVSPORT Sport Action camera has a RRP of $29.00.

I love the NAVSPORT Sport Action camera. It'so rewarding to the kids as much as it is to us to capture precious holiday and travel memories. It gives them responsibility too. The oceans and rivers are just waiting for us to discover their underwater treasures.

It's a close call between the Rugged Powerbank and the Bluetooth tracker but the Powerbank wins by a whisker! I am often worried about my battery running low when I am out and about so this is perfect for me.

Definitely the Rugged Powerbank. I love listening to tunes on my phone at work but it sucks the life out of my battery. This would definitely keep me sane at work

10 PORT!! usb charging station!! We travel a fair bit, sometimes our car holidays take weeks and staying somewhere or camping everything needs to be charged at once overnight or I spend hours in the car doing each separately.

Rugged Powerbank. In today's society, armed with all our devices, our worlds really do stand still when the power runs out.

The Rugged Powerball would be perfect for me. It's so frustrating running short of battery and having to find somewhere to plug cords in.

I cant think of any laser products, I have at home, except for my remote controls and i can't do without them. But certainly would like the goodies in the pack your offering especially the car charger, this most certainly would be a great item to own.

My favourite would be The Laser PBCJ6000 Power Bank.
I can use it through powercuts, and while we travel and camp.
I imagine travelling with just this one device,
To charge all the silly gadgets I just cant do without in life.
No more stressing about the kids leaving a car door not quite shut,
I'll just jump start the battery, off I go, i'll no longer be stuck.

I love the LASER Bluetooth Tracker, handy for someone like me who is constantly putting things up in a safe place, out of the way of the kids and then promptly forgetting where I put it for safe keeping.

Having just come back from camping and having a sulking teenager because her speaker went flat, the powerbank is my favorite! And you can never have too many torches when out camping :)

As a travelling family the Rugged Power Bank would be perfect ...and at home, the house never seems to have enough power points vacant for recharging.
