Powerbank with wireless charging
Manufacturers are increasingly releasing smartphones that support wireless charging (Qi standard), but ordinary consumers do not use modern technology: Qi-enabled docking stations are not included with the devices and are sold separately at fairly high prices, and almost all portable batteries do not support wireless charging . The new Qi-bank from the famous Chinese company Ugreen was released relatively recently, but has already collected 1,000 orders with an average rating of 4.8 points out of 5 possible. All thanks to the excellent price-quality-performance ratio:

UV Instant Superglue
This UV superglue works as well as regular superglue, but hardens much faster: it sticks together in only 5 seconds under the influence of ultraviolet rays. Using this glue stick is very simple: just remove the cap, squeeze the glue to the desired location on a broken or cracked object, then turn the gadget to the other end, turn on the ultraviolet flashlight and shine it on the extruded substance for 5 seconds. Such glue can be used on products made of plastic, wood, ceramics, metal, glass and many other materials.Buy on AliExpress

Retro consoles for fans of 8-bit and 16-bit games
If you were born in the last century, then you probably had a prefix with the legendary Mario, Tanchiki, Contra, Bomberman and other games. To feel nostalgia for those glorious times, it is not necessary to download semi-working emulators to your computer or smartphone. You can buy a relatively inexpensive 8-bit set-top box with 621 built-in games, two wired joysticks of the classic form factor for that time and an HDMI cable that transmits a 720p picture.Buy on AliExpress
for 2 035 rubles.
There used to be lucky ones who were lucky enough to play 16-bit games. This will surely appeal to a slightly redone copy of the console from SEGA. She also broadcasts the picture in HD-quality via HDMI. Recognizable controllers are connected wirelessly - over the air with a frequency of 2.4 Hz. The console has 150 games preinstalled, but original cartridges (American and European models) are also supported.Buy on AliExpress

Xiaomi Wireless Charging Mouse Pad
If you don’t have enough power banks with wireless charging, then you should take a look at the mouse pad with Qi support. The idea of putting 10 W wireless charging in this accessory for a computer seems to be a genius, since in the daytime most people charge their smartphones next to them - with the Smart Mouse Pad you will forget about constantly confused wires at the workplace. This non-slip rug with a charging dock also has an LED backlight with 16.8 million colors - it is regulated by a special wheel. There is no practical sense from it, but it is beautiful.Buy on AliExpress

Xiaomi Electric Screwdriver
Perhaps the screwdriver will be one of the best gifts for the Defender of the Fatherland Day. But, since Xiaomi specifically produces this tool, the screwdriver is very unusual - an electric one. When you press a single button, the motor starts to rotate. However, the gadget allows you to work in manual mode - useful in those situations where you need to tighten the screws stronger. The Xiaomi Wowstick 1P + Pro kit includes 23 nozzles and a special base holder. The screwdriver is powered by two AAA batteries, which are enough for 10 hours of continuous operation of the device. With a length of 173 mm, the gadget weighs 310 grams.Buy on AliExpress
