Driving is a part of daily life, especially if you are living in a large city or somewhere very spread apart. We drive to run errands like buy groceries and pick up the kids, and we drive to work or to school. So wherever you are headed to behind the wheel (or as a passenger), find ways to make your journey more comfy and convenient. Today, we’re sharing 5 smart items to make your commute and drive better.
1. Organize on the inside
A notepad astray. Coins littered about. And a pen that is always playing the vanishing act. Tired of not being able to find anything while you’re behind the wheel or stopped to jot down notes from a call? Then it’s to get organized.
Thankfully, this handy console from The Auto Merch makes cleaning up a cinch. From drinks to pens and coins and your smartphone, keep your essentials stored together and right by your side as you drive. The Multifunctional Car Seat Organizer fits snugly in the space between your car seat and your center console and gear shift — so everything is within your hand’s reach.
2. Stay charged
We’re always on our phones — and they always need sufficient battery in order for us to keep using them. If you’ve got a phone with wireless charging capability but don’t have a charging pad or much space in your driver’s range, consider this: a charging port that fits right into your cupholder. Yeah, that’s right — just slip your phone in and charge. The charger also features a port for AirPods that have wireless charging ability. An auxiliary USB output port is included so you can power up this cupholder-sized charging station with ease. The charger also includes 2 USB ports so you can charge 2 other devices manually. Convenience — all in your cupholder.
3. Be ready for repairs (glass is fragile)
Windshield struck by a pebble on the freeway? Discover a random crack on your window? Inevitable things can happen while you’re driving, but if there is any damage to your windshield, you’ll need to fix it quickly — or else it can spread and destroy your entire windshield. Thankfully, when you arm yourself with The Auto Merch’s Windshield Scratch Repair Liquid, you have a handy solution that restores cracks in glass completely in 20-30 minutes for peace of mind to continue your journey.
Our scratch repair kit features a firm rubber mouth to suck air from any glass damage while our advanced resin formula with a reinforced injection sealant head ensures accurately fix cracks. A simple 4-step process is all it takes!
4. Take device-charging to the next level
Charging your phone but annoyed at how the charging port head limits the mobility of your phone? Or is someone in the backseat charging his iPad but can only hold it at a weird angle due to the physical limits of the charging cord? We understand that frustration, so we highly recommend you use our multifaceted charger cable: available in Lightning, Type C, or Micro USB configurations, you can find the right cable (in a variety of colors) perfect for your device(s).
A charging connector with a magnetic end plugs right into your phone or device’s charging port, while a charging cable (available in 3.3 feet or 6.6 feet) with a magnetic end connects right to your plug. No more clumsily stabbing at your phone with a traditional charging port because the connection is all magnetic — and a built-in LED light on your connector port makes it easy to find your device in the dark. Plus, 360-degree rotation on your charging connector ensures you are free to twist and turn any which way with your device while it is charging. It’s everything you need in one cool charger.
5. Protect your shades
Beware: your sunglasses are prone to damage in your car. If you don’t have a proper case or space for storage in your vehicle, consider this handy clip-on case.
More than a cheap plastic case you could find for $5, our case is made of ABS-engineered plastic (the same material used for car bumpers and dashboards) and boasts a beautiful glossy finish. The case is dust-proof, heat-resistant, and shock-proof, featuring an interior sponge that hugs your shades and eliminates annoying rattling noise that ordinary cases make as you drive (isn’t that the worst?). Simply clip onto your sun visor for non-obstructive storage that is also within your arm’s reach.
We hope you set out on your journeys with greater peace of mind with our 5 great product ideas. Remember to always drive without distraction from smartphones or built-in car navigation systems or back-up cameras.
