The winter is coming to an end, and if you are anything like the Gadget Inspector team, you will be planning which sun-soaked country you'll be visiting for your summer holiday, planning your day trips to the beach, and eagerly watching the band announcements from your favourite festivals.

So imagine that you are at your favourite festival or your favourite beach with your best mates around you, and you have just taken the perfect selfie. You know, the one that everyone will see on Instagram and instantly be jealous of?

Then, suddenly, your phone battery dies and you can’t upload the picture until the end of the day...or worse, the end of the weekend!

We have all been in that situation, and that's why the Ultra Power Bank has made our Gadgets We Cannot Live Without This Summer list.

Ultra Power Bank

This super-powered battery charging device can fully charge your iPhone 5 times on one charge! This makes it super-useful for those days when you want to just lay by the sea, catching some rays.  

If you are unlucky enough to have the battery die in your tablet and your smart phone at the same time, don’t fear - the power bank can charge up two devices at once! Maybe you can lend your charger to your friend if they get stuck (in return for a drink, of course!)

Hopefully you are now convinced that this is the gadget that you can’t imagine spending your summer without this year. The good news is you can buy the Ultra Power Bank today from Gadget Inspector for only £40.00, leaving you with a bit of extra cash for your summer plans!

Hello there, RC enthusiasts! We have some cracking news for you: the Micro Drone Quadcopter, one of our best-selling products of all time, is now BACK IN STOCK!


Better still, there are now three different ways to buy the Micro Drone. Which of the following options will you choose?

Without Camera - £45.99
Select this option if you just want the drone itself - no frills, no add-ons, just the quadcopter and the essential bits and pieces that you'll need to use it!

With Camera - £69.99
An extra twenty-four pounds will net you an attachable camera to go with your quadcopter. It can take photos AND record video footage while it flies!

With Camera & Spare Battery - £70.99
This is the deluxe package, as it were. Not only will you get a quadcopter AND an attachable camera, you'll ALSO get a spare battery for the drone. This allows you to charge one battery while you fly with the other, keeping the RC fun going for twice as long!

It seems like just about everyone owns a smartphone nowadays. 10 million people bought the iPhone 6 when it came out in September, and even that gargantuan figure is peanuts compared to the number of people who own Androids, Galaxies, Blackberries, Nokias, and so forth. There's no doubt about it: we are the smartphone generation, and our mobiles are just as dear to us as Benny Goodman was to our parents and grandparents.

And, with Christmas coming up, this universal obsession with all things smartphone ensures that you've got a whole bunch of great gift ideas right at your fingertips. It doesn't matter who you're shopping for, because everybody - old and young, male and femal - has a smartphone nowadays, and each of those smartphones has a whole arsenal of accessories and add-ons to go with it.

These days, people put almost as much thought into their choice of iPhone case as they put into their choice of network. Heck, some people put even more thought into the case: "Vodafone? Whatever mate, just as long as I can get a case that makes it look like a VW campervan."

There are all kinds of awesome iPhone cases on the market nowadays, but beware - there are some truly horrendous ones out there too. Here are some of the worst we've seen:

Chunky Retro iPhone Case

You know how mobile phones get smaller and smaller every year? Extremely clever people have spent their lives trying to make all that technology fit in your pocket - imagine how those people must feel when you put your slim 'n' sexy iPhone in one of these monstrosities. You're basically telling them that all the work they've done since 1985 was a big waste of time.


Hand iPhone Case

What on Earth was the thinking behind this? 'It'll feel like you're holding your lover's hand while you're on the phone'? Nope, sorry - it'll feel like you're holding a severed hand, and that's just creepy. It's like something out of The Addams Family.

Nose-Picking iPhone Case

Cripes. It's bad enough that someone thought a case with a nose on it would be a good idea, but the promotional imagery makes it clear that you're supposed to hold it in a very particular way. Gross.

Breast iPhone Case

Oh, and if you thought that the nostrils and the severed hand were a bit too tasteful, here's an iPhone case that's shaped like a single boob! Can we just agree that iPhone cases should never be modelled on human body parts?

Giant Isopod iPhone Case

You'd never pick up the phone again, would you?

Bathing Woman iPhone Case

Do people actually find this sort of thing arousing? Why can't they just type naughty words into Google Images like the rest of us?

Bulletproof iPhone Case

"What case have you got for your phone?"

"Oh, I've got this awesome bulletproof case."

"Why? Have people been trying to shoot your iPhone?"

"No, but it means that I can drop it and it won't break."

"Where is it?"

"I had to leave it at home because the case was too heavy."

"You're an idiot and we are no longer friends."

That Thing from Your Nightmares


Lobster Phone iPhone Case

Oh look, a reference to surreal artist Salvador Dali! Allegedly with an iPhone buried somewhere inside it! If there's one thing worse than idiocy, it's pretentious idiocy.

Switchblade iPhone Case

A great accessory for the stylish, 21st-century gang member, this is probably the only case on this list that could actually get you arrested. Unless the police think that the severed hand case is actually, well, a severed hand.
