THE ADAPTER FOR ALL SMART­PHONES This adapter works with dif­fer­ent phone ports. So if you’re a die-hard Ap­ple fan and Hubby’s a Sam­sung sup­porter, this has jacks to con­nect each of them (one at a time) to the com­puter or charger head. It’s also a good travel buddy, with its mini­com­part­ment that keeps your SIM card safe while you use an over­seas pre­paid card. It even props up your phone so you can make Skype calls com­fort­ably. Lifetrons High Tech Multi-tool Adap­tor, 46 eu­ros ($77.60), from www.lifetrons.ch

THE MOUSE THAT SCANS When you’re on the go and need clear soft copies of forms or signed doc­u­ments, this mouse dou­bles as a scan­ner. King Jim Mouse-type Scan­ner, $139, from Sta­tionery Su­per­store

A PEN AT BOTH ENDS What’s the big deal about a pen with a sty­lus at one end? You can use it to ca­jole your eight-year-old to prac­tise her Chi­nese – make her write on a tablet with the dig­i­tal pen, then let her use the sty­lus to cre­ate master­pieces in draw­ing apps like Pa­per (for Ap­ple de­vices) or Sketch­book Ex­press (for Ap­ple and An­droid). If she prefers doo­dling in a sketch­book, there’s al­ways the pen! Plat­inum Touch Pen & Ball-point Pen, $14.20, from Sta­tionery Su­per­store

THE COOK’S HOT POT This deep-fryer also lets you stew, boil, pan-fry, steam, grill and stir-fry with it. Each func­tion has a rec­om­mended tem­per­a­ture (99-240 deg C) and tim­ing (15min to three hours), so you don’t have to guess. Just leave your food to cook – no need to watch over it. We love how it eas­ily re­places an arse­nal of cook­ware. Ger­man Pool 8-in-1 Deep Fry Cooker, $188, from www.hon­ey­bay.com.sg
