Add some spice to your life on the road with some cool stuff for your car

Looking at how 2020 turned out to be, most of us are looking forward to 2021. While we are trying to bring in more positivity (pun unintended) into our lives in the coming year, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to equip our cars with some cool accessories. A lot of people wouldn’t have taken long trips in their cars or driven them to their heart’s content this year, so how about pampering yourself with some nice car stuff to kick off the new year on a good note? Here’s a list of five cool car accessories (plus a bonus accessory for EV owners) that would be a perfect way to bid adieu to 2020.

Although it’s called a dashcam, it is certainly a lot more versatile. The entire setup comes with a 1080p front camera, a 720p rear camera, a 4.3-inch integrated touchscreen, and night vision. You don’t need to take your existing rearview mirror out; this one just straps on to the present one without any fuss. My favorite feature is the driver fatigue alert which prompts after two hours of continuous driving and can be turned off only manually. It also supports app functionality that views videos and playback history in real-time. Chek out the latest price on Amazon

Car fridges are not uncommon, but this one also works as a warmer. The range starts with a four-liter capacity and comes with a handle on to that makes it easy to carry around. Thanks to its compact size, you can keep it in your car’s footwell if you don’t have space elsewhere. This portable fridge works even outside cars, if you ever need it. The fridge can be powered by plugging into the car cigarette lighter, a USB port, or into the wall. The inner shelf can be removed if you want more space inside. And, to top it all off, it can warm up to 149-degree Fahrenheit. A must-have product to ring in the new year. Cheers!

For most folks, the main reason to not switch to EVs is range anxiety. Electric automakers are continuously working towards eliminating this fear by building batteries that can last for a lot more miles and charge faster. But, in the meantime, we can either drive with the anxiety or look for alternate options like a portable EV charger!

The MUSTART Level 2 charger is a 26A EV charger which is said to be sturdier, contain more sensitive chips, and have a higher waterproof level, and also better abrasion resistance than its previous model. It claims that the charger is 1.5 times faster than the 16A Level 2 EV charger. The charger is compact in size and comes with a 25-feet charging cable. It is also lightning-proof and has leakage, overvoltage, overheat, and overcurrent protection. Most importantly, the charger is compatible with most EVs. Check it out and see if it works for you!
