Let’s be honest. Gadgets make our day-to-day experiences far less mundane. No matter how you feel about it, our attention span usually moves from one screen to another. Whether we are watching our favorite TV shows, scrolling through Instagram on our iPhones, or even navigating through the menus of our smartwatches while we’re exercising. It’s all gadgetry! One might say that we wouldn’t be able to live without them anymore.
However, there’s a catch. Gadgets tend to cost a pretty penny, as you surely know by now, and that’s no fun. Nobody wants to spend a quarter of their monthly salary on a technologically advanced toy. Luckily, there’s a solution. Just a click away lies a world of affordable products still unknown to many. It’s called AliExpress.
From kitchen implements to outdoor watches, there isn’t a single piece of equipment or accessory that’s unavailable on AliExpress. So, let’s see what it has to offer. Here’s our list of top 5 AliExpress gadgets you simply have to own.
Would it shock you if we said that this sports watch costs no more than $35? We know. It’s crazy. If you are looking to treat yourself with a cool-looking gadgety outdoor watch, but you’re overwhelmed by how much they usually cost, why not try out the Xiaomi Mi Band 3? There’s nothing to lose.
It comes with a 0.78-inch OLED touchscreen, heart rate monitoring, Bluetooth connectivity, pedometer, sleep monitoring, and other nifty features. Look, you don’t even have to touch it to turn it on. Just raise your wrist and the screen will light-up!
Best of all, if you just get a kick out of how it looks, you can exploit its standby mode and use it as any other timepiece. But guess what. In standby mode, the battery can last up to 20 days!
We know. Don’t get us started on the prices of branded mini HD projectors. Even though some might say that owning a projector is a pure matter of caprice, we beg to differ. The closest most of us will ever come to owning a home cinema is by getting a nice little projector. It’s as simple as that.
The BYINTEK SKY GP70 has its own multimedia system, 1800 LUMENS, and supports full-HD resolution of 1920×1080. The contrast ratio of this device is 1000:1-2000:1 and the projected dimensions are 30×120 inches. All in all, everything you could ever need from a home projector, you get with the SKY GP70.
Check this out. BYINTEK promises that if you don’t use the projector more than 5 hours per day, it will last you an astounding 10 years! If by any chance this sounds average to you, how about a retail price of $80? You’re welcome.
It’s true. Some of us aren’t avid fans of Beats by Dre or Sol Republic headsets. Some of us also don’t like spending hundreds of dollars on quote-unquote “quality headphones”. We are not fans mostly because we know that these are overpriced products and don’t represent good value for money!
To those of you like-minded people I say – embrace AliExpress! Once again, it hasn’t let us down. You must agree that the Bluedio T4S is a pretty-looking headset. But looks aren’t the only thing it has to offer. These headphones feature a 15Hz – 25,000Hz frequency response, 16-ohm low impedance, and a 24-bit audio resolution.
When the battery is fully charged, you can get around 16 hours of playing time out of them. For a headphone set that costs no more than $45, there isn’t much more you could ask for. In the box, apart from the headphones, you also get a flocking bag, user manual, USB Type-C charging cable, and a 3.5mm audio cable.
Okay. We’ve included this moon lamp just because it looks incredibly cool. It isn’t actually a gadget per se, we’ll give you that one. However, it’s touch-activated. That has to count for something, right?
All jokes aside, this really is an unusual, yet very romantic-looking lamp. It will set you back a decent $23 if you decide to opt for the largest 5.9-inch version. What you get is a touch-activated Lithium Ion battery powered lamp. Depending on which brightness option you set it to, it can last anywhere between 4-20 hours per one full charge.
The package includes a moon night lamp, USB charging cable, user manual, as well as a little wooden mount to hold your lamp on. We agree. It’s very seductive.
Believe it or not, but you can get a 4K action camera for less than $50! GoPro? We don’t think so. SJCAM SJ4000 is a perfect solution for those of you who are on a very limited budget but are yearning for a multi-functional action camera.
SJ4000 comes with a 2-inch LTPS screen, 170-degree wide angle lens, Wi-Fi control, up to 32GB storage extension, 4K recording format, and a water-resistant casing which enables you to film underwater.
It’s worth mentioning that there are different bundle options to choose from. For example, if you decide to buy the full package which costs around $8o, with the standard package you’d get an extra battery, dual charger, car holder, car charger, 32GB memory card, monopod, floating bobber stick, and a carry bag. We think that’s a pretty good deal. Wouldn’t you agree?
