Shaped to fit conveniently into your car’s cup holder, this clever gadget converts your car’s power into two 120-volt AC outlets for charging your electronics on the go. It also offers an incredibly useful USB charging port. It can juice up three gadgets at once, so you’re pretty much protected from flat-battery-gadget-hell on a road trip.
An overhead video monitor will transform your vehicle into a mobile movie theater. The beauty of the overhead design, of course, is that the equipment stays out of reach of little fingers. This model boasts a 9-inch screen and can play DVDs with the audio coming through your car’s speakers. Other features of note include USB and SD card slots and AV input for hooking up other electronic devices.
These five devices are a great start for gearing up for better trips in your car, but we’re sure you have a few go-tos yourself. Let us know in the comments about your must-have car gadgets.
