This holiday season, consider giving a gadget for the home or car. These are our favorites. Hate it when your phone runs out of juice, or worse yet, your car battery dies? The Bolt Power Jump Starter can charge your wheels and your mobile devices. This $100 gadget has a 400-amp output, enough to revive your car or charge an iPhone 5S 6 times. The $100 iFetch helps your puppy get plenty of playtime. Unlike dog owners, it never gets tired of throwing balls. iFetch is only intended for small or medium dogs, since it uses these 1 and half inch balls. Help someone get a head start on their emergency kit with the Survival Sidekick. This $50 high tech Swiss Army Knife boasts 10 tools in one compact device, including a distress light, seatbelt cutter, compass, and a radio that lets you tune in to weather alerts. Give the gift of memory with tiles. Stick these sensors onto anything you wish to track, whether it's your purse, bike or keys. If or when they go missing, open the smartphone app to see how close you are to the object. Has a range of about a hundred feet, and a pack of four runs $70. The $50 Logitech multi-device keyboard makes typing easier whether you're using a smartphone, tablet, computer, or all three at once.
