7 Must Have Car Accessories and Gadgets

March 19th, 2020 by

We spend a lot of time in our cars. That number just keeps increasing, too. Americans were spending 12% more time behind the wheel in June of 2019 than they had been in October 2018.

Pretty soon, we’ll be sleeping at the wheel.

Since we spend so much time driving, we want to be as comfortable as possible. You also want to be entertained. Why let something be a drag when it could be fun?

Some of these car gadgets will do exactly that. Others will make your commute more efficient, more comfortable, and more productive.

Here are some of the must have car accessories for commuters of all stripes!


7 Must Have Car Accessories

From a portable cooler to an ergonomic car seat, there are some of the most essential car accessories you need this year.


Schumacher Jump Starter

Getting stranded on the side of the road is no fun. At best, it’s highly inconvenient. At worst, it can be dangerous, even life-threatening.

Sometimes you might be out of cell range to unable to contact roadside assistance or Triple A. You can sometimes wait hours for a car to pass by to give you a jump.

The Schumacher Jump Starter is a portable jump starter you can store in your trunk. It holds enough charge for several jumps, so you won’t have to charge it every time. You can just keep it in your trunk and forget about it until you need it.

The Schumacher Jump Starter also lets you test your car battery and alternator so you can determine where the problem is.


Mpow Bluetooth Receiver

Not everybody has a fancy new car and stereo. Your car might not automatically have a Bluetooth connector to sync your phone with your car stereo. You could be stuck listening to local radio, making your morning commute 10x as long.

The Mpow Bluetooth Receiver is a simple device that will revolutionize your commute. It works with any stereo that features an Aux In. Simply plug in the Bluetooth receiver and then connect your phone, and you can listen to anything in your entire digital music library.

The Mpow Bluetooth Receiver is optimized for sound quality, letting you stream audio in the highest fidelity without using too much power. It holds a charge for up to 10 hours of playback without needing to be recharged. You could listen to a quarter of a Game of Thrones novel on one charge!


Cooluli Mini Fridge Electric Cooler and Warmer

Planning a long road trip? Want to keep your coffee warm in the morning? The Cooluli Mini Fridge is ideal for those who are obsessed with having their drinks at a particular temperature.

The Cooluli Mini Fridge lets you set the temperature, so you can keep your beverages as hot or as cold as you like. It supports several different chargers, from USB to your car’s cigarette lighter, so you have numerous options for powering your cooler.

This also makes it easy and convenient to bring the mini-fridge into your office once you arrive. It’s a cooler and office fridge, all in one!


Fobo Tire Plus

Smartwatches, smartphones, here’s your chance to have smart tires!

Worn-out tires wear out more quickly. Having properly inflated tires distributes the wear and tear more evenly across your tires, letting them last as long as possible. By the time you think to check your tires, however, it might already be too late.

The Fobo Tire Plus is a Bluetooth device that streams data about your tires directly to your smartphone. You’ll be given an alert when your tire pressure gets low. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of the cure, as the saying goes.


Scosche USB Charger

This cool car accessory might not seem that impressive at first glance. Until you start to run out of charge on one of your other devices, that is. Then, all of a sudden, it’ll be the most glamorous gadget in the world.

The Schosche USB charger lets you charge two USB devices at the same time. This means you can charge your phone and your Bluetooth speaker at the same time! No more having to decide between GPS and tunes.

The price tag alone is enough to make this USB charger newsworthy. At a cool $10, it’s one of the lowest price car accessories that you will use every single day.


Tile Mate

This is more like a car-related accessory. It almost might not seem that exciting, at first glance. Until it comes time to find you keys, of course, and then you’ll be thanking the heavens for this little gadget.

The Tile Mate is a simple tracking device that lets you keep track of where your keys are. It’s a simple key fob that you can track with a related app.


Aylio Coccyx Seat Cushion

Seeing as how we’re spending more and more time in our car with each passing year, it’s important to make that time as comfortable as possible. Enter the Aylio Coccyx Seat Cushion. This neat little gadget is simple in scope but with profound implications for your health and well-being!

The Aylio Coccyx Seat Cushion takes the pressure off your spine via an innovative cutout design. It helps adjust your posture, making your commute as comfortable and ergonomic as possible.

It’s also compact and lightweight, so it can double as a cushion for your home or office as well.

As you can see, there’s a nearly endless array of car gadgets and gizmos to make your driving more fun and exciting. You can find some more on this excellent list from Digital Trends.
