In this post we are going to see a brand new compilation of unique products from AliExpress that we have selected for you. We have added products at all price points from as low as $1 to up to $100, so expect a various, but a comparable level of innovation.
We hope you enjoy them!
The first item today is a handy iPhone splitter.
As we all know, newer iPhones only come with one port that serves for both charging or data sync and for earphones, but when you need to do both at the same time, you are left with nothing but sour disappointment, which is not something you expect after paying over a $1000 for a device that is supposed to be a pinnacle of technology.
An elegant solution easily attaches to the back of your phone with the fancy nano-washable glue, and it comes with a ring holder that doubles as a stand and is compatible with magnetic card holders.
The chip inside optimizes the sound output for your earphones that reduces static noise to an absolute minimum.
The second product is a big mousepad that comes with extra entertainment features.
It’s said that all that glitters is not gold, but this RGB LED mousepad is definitely an exception. I just got mine and it’s awesome. My workstation now looks like a spaceship with the LED strip running on the outer edge of the table, a backlit mechanical keyboard, LED mouse, a few LED’s inside the PC case, and now – this.
The mousepad has 13 different lighting modes, between which you can switch by clicking the button on the side. It comes with a pretty long braided cable, but you can use any micro-USB cable that you have at your disposal. Material-wise it isn’t any different than a regular standard pad, except that it has a flexible light strip goes all the way around the edge.
MODULAR WALL LIGHT
Price: $44.50 – 129.49
This is a fully customizable smart wall light. It is compatible with Amazon Echo, i.e. Alexa, and with Google Home, which means you can control it with voice.
There are two options, a more expensive Xiaomi, which is triangle-shaped, and a generic no-name version, which is in the shape of a hexagon and is a fair bit smaller than the Xiaomi ones.
These things are pretty sweet, you can set the color, the mode with which the colors change, you can also set the time when it turns on and off, preset the mood settings, and the best part is when it is setup properly and when you are done with it you can just tell turn it off, and it will comply.
XIAOMI NIGHT LIGHT + WIRELESS CHARGER
Here is another item by Xiaomi: a wireless charging dock with a portable little nightlight. The light also does not need to be plugged in to charge – just put it in its dock. This light comes with a magnet and it can be attached to metallic surfaces.
What I thought was interesting about it is the fact that it has a built-in object detection, which will power it off if it comes in contact with sharp metallic objects, to avoid getting shocked if the wire is cut by accident – a pretty useless thing unless you live with Edward Scissorhands, but an interesting addition nonetheless.
WALL KEY RACK
Another unique household item is this deer keyholder that can make a great gift for a unique home decor aficionado.
The holder comes with all the necessary mounting hardware.
REMOTE CONTROL COVERS
Here is a cheaper item, a 25-piece set of shrink tubes for remotes.
No longer do you need to worry about making the remote wet by accidental spills, or dirty from Cheetos dust. It is really easy to use, just put it over the remote, cut off the excess plastic, and heat it with a heat gun or a handheld hairdryer.
If it rips, there is a plenty of them to serve as a replacement.
HOUSEHOLD TOWEL SOCKET
Another cheap item is a household towel socket.
It comes with a pre applied double-sided adhesive tape. Also pretty simple to use, place it anywhere you need it, whether in the kitchen or in the bathroom, and insert the towel or rubber gloves into it so that they are always somewhere handy.
SUNGLASSES WITH BLUETOOTH SPEAKERS
Sunglasses with Bluetooth.
Why, you may ask, and it would be a reasonable question. But the answer might surprise you.
They have built-in bone conductive speakers, which means that they transfer the sound by coming into direct contact with your temples. You can listen to music and answer and make calls when pairing them with your phone – according to feedback the sound is very strong.
When being used indoors others can hear your music, although it is not a big issue, as sunglasses are generally not used indoors, unless your name happens to be Chad or Kyle.
SURFACE VIBRATION SPEAKER
Here is a really cool speaker concept.
This speaker uses the surface that it is placed on as a massive speaker – similar technology as the bone-conductive sunglasses, albeit on a much larger scale as the speaker is stronger.
There is a Bluetooth mode which does not require any wires, or if you wish to conserve the battery or use it with an audio source that does not support it, you can use a simple AUX cable. If you happen to have more than one of these speakers, you can use them in a sequence for a greater result – i.e. for more loudness.
SMARTPHONE GAMING CONTROLLER
Smartphone gaming is a big thing (especially in developing countries, where gaming PCs are just too expensive for most people).
if you find that controlling the game is not as comfortable or if you require better range of controls, or if you are more used to a console setting, here is an external gamepad.
The brackets are adjustable up to 10 inches, so it can be used with both smartphones and tablets, although the tablets can only fit if you use them vertically.
