The best budget gadgets

If you like your gadgets you’ll love these budget priced ones.

Here are three nifty and cheap gadgets, perfect for gifts or even as a treat for yourself and your inner geek.

Tiny spy camera

This is the world’s smallest spy camera. It’s the size of your thumb and takes pictures and video with one button. While tiny at only 2.5cm by 2.5cm, it packs a camera with 2 million pixels and a video resolution of 30fps. It’s easy to use, with only a single button. Simply press and hold the button to turn it on. Once you see the tiny red LED light, you’re ready to start snapping away.

Press it once to take a picture, or press and hold to record a video. All images are conveniently stored onto the inserted micro SD/TF card for you to look at later. Check it out here.

Flameless lighter

Operating completely on electricity, this lighter doesn’t need any gas, fuel, or refills. Simply charge the built-in battery with the included USB cable, and it’s ready for use. The lighter is enclosed within a sleek metal case and all you do is flip the top open, and press the button on its side to start a “flame.”

This “flame” is actually an electric arc in the shape of a glowing purple “X” for a much cooler effect. Small, flameless, and windproof, makes this lighter a safe and more effective way to help you start a fire under a BBQ or in a fireplace. Check it out here.

Coloured LED shower head

Turn your shower into a healthy disco. With its temperature-responsive LED lights, the colour of your shower-head automatically changes depending on the temperature of the water.

You get sprayed with coloured water and have the added benefit of being able to tell when it’s warm enough to step in. There’s also a health bonus, as inside the handle are tens of anion mineral balls to purify and remove chlorine from your tap water. You feel refreshed, cleaned, and rejuvenated after every shower.
