When sun­bathing you may want to pro­tect your eyes from UV light, but sun­glasses can leave pan­da­eye marks. New on the mar­ket are Oc­cles, light-block­ing eye­shades. They feel light in weight, don’t have a bridge so no tan-line wor­ries, and have eye seals made from soft, med­i­cal-grade TPE so they’re easy on the skin. Use them while in the sun or when you want to block out light while rest­ing or sleep­ing. Oc­cles are avail­able in three colours — white, black and aqua — and cost £22.

The Grove-e So­lar Bank can charge an iPhone up to four times and other mo­biles up to eight times be­fore need­ing to be charged again, al­though in the mean­time, it will recharge it­self via the sun any­way. Faster recharge is avail­able via USB within seven hours. It can charge two de­vices si­mul­ta­ne­ously with a USB con­nec­tion, and small phones will be fully charged in 1.5 hours. There’s also a flash­light in case you hap­pen to be out­doors, camp­ing for ex­am­ple. The Grove-e So­lar Bank is avail­able from Ama­zon for £33.19.

Take your smart TV with you and never suf­fer telly with­drawal symp­toms again. Plug the Rocku Stream­ing Stick into any HDMI TV and voila! Roku play­ers have the most com­pre­hen­sive stream­ing chan­nel line-up in the UK, in­clud­ing all ma­jor catch-up TV chan­nels (BBC iPlayer, All 4, ITV Player and De­mand 5), and Net­flix, Google Play and Now TV. There’s more than 1,500 chan­nels in to­tal. It is avail­able from Ama­zon, Currys, PC World, Maplin and Tesco Direct. Cost, £44.99.

You are trav­el­ling but want to do some work? The Univer­sal fold­able key­board from Mi­crosoft could help save space. The keys are full size, even if your smart­phone or tablet is not. Pair it with two de­vices – iPad and iPhone for ex­am­ple — and switch be­tween the two, and a sin­gle charge will give you three months of use. When done, fold it and slip it into your pocket. Cost, £99.
