The Battery Storage Organizer From Elegant Gizmos

Do you have a drawer organizer for battery storage like the one you use for cutlery? Unfortunately many people toss their opened battery packages and even loose batteries into the proverbial junk drawer or often in multiple locations around the house. When they need a battery they end up sifting through all the drawers in the house or workshop looking for what they hope will be a fully charged battery. It doesn’t have to be that way.

There are lots of battery storage containers available. They range from plastic battery boxes that hold one type of battery to similar ones with compartments for a variety of battery types. They come in a variety of sizes holding a few to dozens of batteries. So what should you be looking for in a battery storage organizer? Here is my take on that question.

Safely Organizes Common Household Battery Types

Your kids’ toys, your thermostats, smoke detectors, TV and a variety of remote controls for a large number of electronic devices in your home and workshop use a variety of batteries. A battery storage case should have compartments for several AAA, AA, C and D size and 9 Volt batteries. Ideally it should have room for a number of button batteries of various sizes as well. It should also segregate batteries.

It’s really important to ensure that whatever battery storage option you choose separates batteries from one another. Batteries tend to corrode or leak over time and if left and forgotten in the back of a drawer will cause damage to anything stored with them including other batteries. A good battery organizer storage case with separate compartments for a each battery solves that problem. It also serves to keep your batteries all in one place and readily available when needed.

Like the cutlery organizer trays in most kitchens, a good battery organizer should be located for easy access to batteries that can be easily removed when needed. Storing it in a drawer or cabinet or on a shelf does the trick. Mounting the case on a wall in the pantry or workshop provides those benefits. A wall mounted organizer would have the added advantage of allowing you to assess at a glance what type and how many batteries are on hand. So where do you look for such an organizer?

Where can you find such a product?

We recommend our own Elegant Gizmos Battery Storage Organizer. Not only does it have all the features and benefits required, it comes with a removable battery tester, instructions for use and hardware to mount it on a wall should you choose that option. We do recommend putting it in a drawer on a shelf. The tester ensures you know what batteries are good to go and which need to be recycled.  You’ll avoid the frustration of taking a toy or device apart to insert a new battery only to discover the replacement is no good.

What Happened To Those Must Have Gizmos

Where Are Those Must Have Gizmos Now

Only in Ireland eh? Just read a hilarious article about those must have gizmos we once knew were essential, but which now lead a lonely existence. If they aren’t on the way to Goodwill they are packed away or gathering dust under the stairs or in the spare room.

I’ll bet a high proportion of readers have more than one of these gizmos. How about Steam Cleaners? They looked like the answer to cleaning almost anything from the bathroom, to the kitchen and into the kids bedroom. Even taking the wrinkles out of shirts without hauling out the iron and ironing board seemed a dream come true.

But they didn’t live up to the hype so within maybe weeks it was back to the regular bucket and mop an that trusty ironing board.

Got Pasta Makers and Juicers?

These two ring bells with me and probably a lot of people. It looked so cool to see the pasta maker effortlessly turn out mouth watering pasta. And that juicer was impressive with fresh carrot or apple juice poring out in clear, sparkling streams. Just had to have them.

But then reality set in. It takes a lot of time and ingredients to make that pasta and it really doesn’t turn out to be identical to the stuff that little Italian Mamma turns out in the commercials. How about that juicer? Well, it really doesn’t turn out juice that’s so sparkling, and certainly not in the volumes expected. Beside that, the huge mess of pulp created has to cleaned up and out of the juicer. More trouble than it’s worth! I know, I’ve got one. Somewhere.

Hey, maybe you’ll find your next gotta have thing right here!

Exercise Gizmos and Gadgets

I’ll bet more than a few of you have weight benches and dumbells kicking around somewhere. Maybe you also have an exercise bike or treadmill and bunch of other gadgets that were once deemed essential to your well being! But they now sit unused and unloved in the spare room or the garage.

And so it goes. Add waffle makers, grass trimmers (those I actually use), Bongos, Ukuleles and Digital Cameras to the mix and you have an eclectic list of stuff you read about that were among the next great must have gizmos and gadgets. You might want to read the full article by Conor Pope and enjoy his Irish prose. One thing seems certain; with the speed at which technology changes these days, expect the current crop of trending gizmos and gadgets to disappear under the dust in a similar fashion.

One gizmo that won’t go out of favour as long as you need batteries to power your other gadgets is our battery organizer with removable tester. Check it out soon and let me know what you think of it. Click the button.

Rain Protector Gizmos

Rain Protector Gizmos and Gear For Spring Showers

The best rain protector gizmos and gear to help you enjoy those April showers

To make your life a little easier as the rains try to spoil your plans here are some innovative rain protector gizmos to keep you dry.

They include a cool dog leash that doubles as a pet umbrella available on, where else- Amazon. How about a Superhydrophobic Packable Umbrella that repels water so it’s not wet when you head inside or want to pop it into the back seat of the car.

Then there’s a polyester pop-up tent that’s very portable and designed to keep you and your friends and family dry while watching a sporting event, camping or doing the tailgate thing. This Sportspod is one of the coolest rain protector gizmos I’ve seen.

Fashionable Rain Protector Gizmos

The fashionistas among us will love the Seal Shoe Covers. They are the ultimate in rain gizmos designed to be worn over all types of shoes. They are very fashionable, light weight and conveniently roll up and store in a neat little pouch. If you don’t like those clunky rubber boots, these are for you.

Then there’s a waterproof purse cover by THE GROMMET designed to protect your leather handbag or tote from the rain but still allow you to reach in for your wallet or phone without getting everything in there rained on.

And here’s a really cool rain protector gizmo. How many times have you been out there, trying to take notes or fill in a scoresheet in the rain? If you get it done at all the sheet may not survive for long. THE GROMMET to the rescue again with a set of 3 All-Weather Top Spiral Notebooks. These notebooks last a long time and you can write on them even if the paper is wet. Of course the addition of an All-Weather Pen By Rite in the Rain tops it off. Both are available on Amazon.

Gear for Campers and Hikers

There’s also a couple of gadgets designed for campers in general but not necessarily rain protector gizmos. The LuminAID PackLite Max 2-in-1 Phone is solar powered and expands to be used as a lantern. It’s great for campers and hikers. So too is the LifeSaver Liberty Purification Water Bottle. It can filter 99.9 percent of all bacteria and viruses out of just about any water source, including mud puddles. Both are available on Amazon.

Tech Gadgets Blast From The Past

Popular Tech Gadgets Then and Now

It’s truly amazing to see the evolution of tech gadgets and gizmos in the span of just a decade or two. We are no longer tied to the television or stereo plugged into the wall in the family room. We can wander the house with a Bluetooth headset and enjoy top quality surround sound. We can wirelessly stream video on any number of devices from pretty much anywhere. And the ubiquitous smartphone has revolutionized communication.

I just came across an article that examines what eight of the most popular tech gadgets looked like when released and what they look like and do now. It’s no surprise that Apple dominates the field. The Apple Macintosh, iPhone and iPad lead the way.

Smart Phones and Personal Computers

Tech Gadgets2The Apple Macintosh, introduced in 1984, was the first personal computer with graphical user interface, built-in screen and mouse. The concept then was to provide a fool proof unit anyone could use out of the box. Today the Apple collection of personal computers and laptops have come a long way in terms of capabilities. But they retain the simplicity of use principle envisioned by Steve Jobs.

The iPhone has revolutionized communications since being introduced in 2007. Today’s versions are bigger, and better. The features on the iPhone XS and iPhone XR are so much more advanced than we could have imagined in 2007. It’s not just a phone. It’s a powerful computer with features like Apple Pay and a Health app that can track anything the health conscious individual wants.

Fast forward to today. There is an almost infinite number of choices of computers and smart phones available to consumers. But Apple continues to lead the way. My computing needs had me choose a PC over a Mac when they first became available. I wanted more control over how the device worked and what I could make it do than a Mac would allow. But the very fact we talk about personal computers as either Mac or PC illustrates how distinct the Apple Macintosh was and continues to be.

Gaming Consoles

Tech GadgetsNintendo came out with GameBoy in 1989. It was the first hand held gaming station and sold well over 100 million units worldwide. They continued with Nintendo Switch in 2017 and over 32 million consoles have been sold already.

Sony got into the gaming arena with the release of PlayStation in 1994. They made gaming a mainstream activity then and have simply improved over time.

Not to be out done, Microsoft introduced the XBox in 2001 and then a year later XBox Live that allowed gamers to compete online. By 2017 Microsoft is said to have sold 20 Million consoles. Today the unit does away with the cords and CD drives with wireless remote controllers.

Televisions and Reading Devices

Korean tech giant Samsung started making televisions in the 1970s. By the late ’90s, it created the world’s first mass-produced digital TV. In the early 2000s, Samsung began making HD TVs, and expanded to Blu-Ray players and home theater equipment as well.

Samsung just keeps getting better. Like most newer tech products, their current lineup of TVs is faster, more vibrant and bigger. In 2019, Samsung televisions offer smart capabilities and even a huge 219-inch TV called “The Wall.”

Amazon introduced the Kindle in 2007. It came only in white and had an E-lnk display that made reading easy on the eyes. I’ve also been told it made a big difference to the reading ability of people suffering from dyslexia. Go figure! It had a full keyboard and a scroll wheel.

Today the Kindle comes in a variety of styles and sizes. They come with Amazon Audible, WiFi and cellular connectivity.

Check out this blast from the past at Business Insider. I found it pretty interesting reading. While Elegant Gizmos doesn’t have an extremely high tech gizmo to offer you, we do have a really cool way for you to store and organize all the batteries you’ll need to run your high tech devices. Check out our battery organizer storage case with tester on Amazon today.

Two Smart Gizmos from Editors’ Choice Gadgets

This may be a little dated but here are two smart gizmos featured in PCWorld Editors’ Choice Gadgets back in 2017. I’ll bet they are as relevant and noteworthy today. They are “really smart” and will make your life more fun and comfortable

Google Home is the Best Smart Speaker

Google Home was launched with a huge promo campaign and like many first of a kind it has taken smart speakers into the mainstream. It’s still pretty much a baby but Google Home drew in the folks who are already on board with smart home and automation technology and also attracted the masses in a remarkable display of savvy tech marketing.

Alexa and Cortana have come on the scene and are pushing hard to gather market share. But being first in and having a clear playing field for the first year or so means Google Home is still leading the pack. It’s still the best option out there.

Best Smartwatch of 2017 is Apple Watch Series 3

There’s lots of competition in this niche but Apple has the lead for a number of reasons. One is that much like the iPhone, the Apple Watch has that elegant simplicity and just plain works. It’s got more direct competition than the iPhone because it competes in a category where virtually all of the players have a pretty similar and usually limited set of features and functionality. But Apple has the edge.

Where the Apple Watch excels is in the operating software. Apple’s WatchOS system is noticeably more mature than that of the competition. And they made the move to cellular. They weren’t the first smart watch to go this route but it does mean they’ll be setting the standard for the competition in the same way their OS has done across platforms

That’s clearly the case. As I write this the Apple watch series 4 is out with improvements in speakers, chip speed and longer battery life. Combine all this with the brand loyalty demanded and received by Apple aficionados, and they’ll continue to lead the pack.

I’ll be back with a couple more smart gizmos and gadgets next time. In the mean time go find a deal on our Battery Organizer Storage Case with Tester. If you are quick the sale may still be on. But it’s a deal at full price anyway.

Household Gizmos Of The Weird and Wonderful Variety

Brilliant But Practical Household Gizmos

So I’m sifting through Yahoo Lifestyle just because I love gizmos and gadgets and that’s what Elegant Gizmos does. And I come across a great article about 10 weird but brilliant gadgets designed to make your life a lot easier. You can read all about these household gizmos at the original article but here’s three that most impressed.

Ball Cap Washer

I don’t know about you but I have a lot of ball caps I really like but don’t wear often because they are so hard to keep clean. But would you believe some genius invented a very clever gadget that solves the problem. It’s a “cage” made of sturdy, multi-use plastic that lets you wash those precious caps in the top of your dishwasher.

It’s made by Evelots and is available from Walmart for about $7.00. Beats the heck out of taking them in to the cleaners only to find they really can’t do the job properly.

Extendable Tub and Tile Scrubber

What’s the job your wife has for you that you really detest? For me it’s hands down cleaning the shower and bath tub. For one thing there’s all those hard to reach nooks and crannies that are equally hard to get clean. Enter the OXO Good Grips Extendable Tub and Tile Scrubber.

It truly is an ergonomic marvel with a head that pivots to get into awkward spots. The extendable handle lets’ you get at even the highest tiles and corners with out having to balance precariously on a slippery surface. The anti-microbial head is abrasive enough to wipe out the toughest stains. You can find it on Amazon for about $13.00.

Cool Vegetable Spiralizer

I get to peel the carrots, potatoes and other veggies when enlisted to help make dinner for the horde when they descend upon us. With invitation of course because we treasure our time with family. My output is workman-like; nothing fancy. Cubes, not strips and certainly no nifty spirals. Until now!

Vegetable Spiralizer Household Gizmo

The Vegetable Spiralizer Jar by TheGrommet for about $15.00 handles all that so I can create some awesome ribbons. This little tool fits right into the top of a jar so all you have to do is twist away and create ribbons of veggies to your heart’s content. Even I can do it like a pro.You can quickly make yourself a cool spiralized salad, add some cheese or lentils and a dollop of dressing and lunch is packed and ready to go in the jar!

Travel Gizmos For The Weekend Getaway

Travel Gizmos and Gadgets

I’m just finished an article from Quantas that predictably talks about travel gizmos and gadgets. Half a dozen really caught my attention because they are so cool and functional. And they are definitely not just applicable to when you are on the road. I’d be using them at home or in the office as well.

Portable Power

Knowing I’ll be away from power outlets for an extended period is kinda stressful for an online entrepreneur. But the 6000mAh Portable Power Bank from Cygnett really takes the pressure off when you are away for a weekend or away on business. Lots of power available, costs less than $50 and is extremely portable.

Live Home Monitoring

A little pricey at about $1100 but worth it for the peace of mind, the Netgear Arlo Pro 2 connects yo to home with live footage of what’s happening when you’re gone. It provides seven days data back up to the cloud so you’ll have a great record of what goes on when you aren’t there. Of course the Arlo Pro alerts you when an unknown individual hoves into view. Netgear’s Arlo Pro 2 alerts you when an unknown person appears in its view and has geo-fencing to switch off the cameras when you get home, plus seven days free back-up to the cloud.

Pocket Camera and Tripod/Selfie Stick

You’ve undoubtedly got a pretty good camera on your smartphone, but to record your weekend or longer vacation in style the Sony RX100 VI pocket camera is an awesome addition to your gadget and gizmo line up. It’s versatile and powerful with a wide aperture for shooting in low light and a large sensor to take in a lot of information in each shot. The massive 24-200mm zoom lens and lightning fast autofocus makes capturing action at a distance a snap. It’s not cheap at about $1700 but looks like it’s well worth the outlay.

Add an inexpensive ($70) Tripod Selfie Stick combo with bluetooth remote (Black Eye Selfie Stick Tripod Combo) and you have the ultimate in power, portability and convenience. You’ll get all the group pics and be in them all without finding a friendly passerby to act as your photographer.

Powerful Data Backup and Storage

You may be on a break but your laptop never takes a break. It’s the online entrepreneur’a lifeline to the business world. With the super portable Samsung T5 portable SSD drive you’ll backup your fully encrypted data on the go. And at as little as $159 that peace of mind is also very inexpensive.

Headband Sleep Headphones

Maybe the best for last. How about a comfortable headband that incorporates bluetooth headphones. Tune in what you want to hear and tune out the extraneous noise on the airplane or in a hotel room.  Meditate and drift off with a Breeze SleepPhones Headband Sleep Headphones with Bluetooth for $160. Cool gadget indeed.

Some great ideas here and I’ll be following up to see if I can find some similar stuff for my store. We’re just getting started but pay us a visit and check out our Battery Organizer Storage Case with Tester.

Cool Gadgets For Pets

I’ve been sifting through some of my gizmos and gadgets articles and came across a few pet gadgets that are  innovative and very functional. Let’ start with a few from 9 Amazing Must-Have Gadgets For Pets.

Baby Monitor for Pets.

You have monitors in the kids room, mostly to keep them safe and alert you to what they are up to. So why not for your pets. Petcube Play 2 has audio and video capability making checking up on them really easily and because it connects to your phone, you can even talk to bowser when you are out and about.

Family Only Dog Door

Here’s a really cool gizmo. It’s a high tech doggie flap door called Wagz Go Smart. It allows dogs to go in and out at will. The cool part is it’s operated by a tag on the dog’s collar so it opens and closes when the dog approaches the door to come in or go. Only authorized family dogs can get in and out!

But even more cool is the fact the tag can be programmed to allow operation at specific times. Handy if you don’t want the dog in and out all the time or if you have more than one and you want them in and out at different times.

Automated Kitty Litter Box

Here’s a really neat gadget. You may love your cats but I don’t know anyone who loves the odour of the litter box. Cleaning out that thing is about the last thing I’d want to do. Enter LavvieBot Purrsong . It’s the ultimate in kitty-litter boxes and a dream come true.

It automatically cleans the litter box, keeps it topped up and controls that “oh so pungent” odor.It takes care of that mess so you don’t have to and comes with a WiFi enabled app that sends you alerts when the litter supply is running low. If you’re a real detail nut you can even plot your cat’s litter box routine. Now that’s cool!

Automatic Retriever Training

This one got my attention. A really practical pet gadget that I can relate to. I’ve had a number of Labrador Retrievers and been around a lot of Border Collies. If you know anything about those breeds you’ll know they can wear you out in a game of go fetch. I swear that my big chocolate lab would retrieve until he dropped, if I didn’t drop first.

So iFetch is a pet gadget that lets Fido play fetch all by himself. It launches a small tennis ball a distance of 10 to 30 feet from the launcher and the dog is able to play the game without any help. It brings the ball back to the launcher, drops it into a hopper and is off on the next retrieve. What a way to let the dog get some exercise without wearing out the master

Being a gizmos and gadgets guy I found these pet gadgets really neat, innovative and practical. That’s what we aim to provide here at Elegant Gizmos, now and in the future. We’re just getting started. Check out our newest gizmos by clicking the button below. You’ll find the Elegant Gizmos battery storage organizer aka battery storage organizer case with tester.
