Tech-Know gift ideas for your family this Christmas

Some are big, and some are little. All will be appreciated by your tech-know loved ones!

Welcome to our Tech-Know Christmas! For the next ten days I’ll be sharing some great gift ideas for your family and friends. Especially those tricky tweens and teens who really seem to have everything they need, right?

On the Third day of Christmas…Emergency Power Charger


This one might not be the most exciting parcel under the tree but it will be the most popular come day two of your camping or beach holiday! This funny looking thing gets charged up at home through a normal wall socket or through your laptop USB port. Then you carry it with you and when you run low on battery in your mobile device you simply plug it into the charger. Great for road trips – so that Frozen doesn’t stop with 10 minutes to go and cause a major kid-meltdown! Also good for kids at school who maybe forgot to charge their iPad at home last night (no? Just me?).

Great for the tech-know parent too – this one’s a lifesaver if you are out and about with kids all week and Saturday morning. Your phone runs out and there’s still  an hour of swimming/baseball/tennis/footy left to go… A bit of Facebook to go with a coffee on the sidelines is just necessary, right?

Who for?

Kids with mobile devices and adults who are out and about away from power!


There are tonnes of different ones out there – check which connection you have so that you buy the right charger for your device.

The one below is a cheap and cheerful one at about $15 with $8 shipping to Australia
