In this gadget-themed guide, we’ll show you some of the products we’ve stumbled upon recently at Banggood and Aliexpress. Kitchen gadgets The cheap ones are at least as practical Grill and cooking gloves which can withstand temperatures of 500 degrees. The gloves, which are available from less than 10 euros, are easy to grip and keep out significantly more heat than the classic pot holder or cooking glove. At Amazon they cost heat-resistant gloves around 15 to 20 euros. The air pressure corkscrew for less than 5 euros is much more unusual. Instead of mechanical forces, this variant relies on air pressure. It remains to be seen whether this is better or more practical than a conventional opener. This unusual gadget is definitely an eye-catcher at the next sociable evening. Pet gadgets There are also tons of more or less useful gadgets for pets. Among other things, there is the fully automatic laser tower for the entertainment of cats. The moving laser point magically attracts the cats and ensures movement and fun from 15 euros. But it can be much wackier. There is the one that can be recharged via USB wriggling fish for about 5 euros . This entertains the cat and ensures astonished looks. the remote controlled rc mouse , which is also available from just under 15 euros, occupies both the cat and its owner. This RC gadget is currently even available on Amazon from 10 € . The electric hairdryer for dogs and cats is not for entertainment, but for the care of your four-legged friends. The combination of fur brush and hairdryer is available from around 15 euros. Aquarium owners also get cheap helpers from China. There are time-controlled automatic feeders from 15 euros.

Key finder Retro-Gaming Tools for the workshop Conclusion Not everything that is cheap is automatically nonsensical. Inexpensive Chinese gadgets such as retro consoles, toys for pets or the RFID furniture lock make perfect sense and are also used privately by us. Some of the products, such as the RC crocodile or the measuring spoon with scales, are, in our opinion, more suitable as a gag or funny gift. Worse still: Anyone who causes panic at the quarry pond should not only clash with the bathers. A regular look at the Gadgets by Banggood or Aliexpress is still worth it. In addition to curious gifts, there are many inexpensive helpers for everyday life here.
