If you’re still reach­ing for your charg­ing cable each time your smart­phone runs out of juice, per­haps it’s time to con­sider some­thing like the Belkin Boost Up Wire­less Charg­ing pad. It’s com­pat­i­ble with the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, and is claimed to work through cases up to 3mm thick. $99

Dy­namic driv­ing and vig­or­ous work­outs might cause most wire­less ear­phones to fall out, but Bose claims that their SoundS­port Free wire­less ear buds will stay in place thanks to the brand’s StayHear+ ear tips. When paired with your phone, they’ll con­ve­niently store their last known lo­ca­tion when you re­move them, so they’ll be eas­ier to find. $319

If you like your cars fast and tough, then you’ll want to be typ­ing on a key­board like the Cooler Mas­ter MasterKeys MK750. This key­board has a 32-bit ARM Cor­tex pro­ces­sor and 512KB of on­board mem­ory, a re­sponse time of 1ms, and Ger­man-made Cherry MX me­chan­i­cal switches that can with­stand up to 50 mil­lion key­strokes. $239

For­mula 1 fans who are also se­ri­ous shutterbugs can con­sider adding the Nikon 180-400mm f/4E lens to their kit. Get­ting even closer to the ac­tion is made eas­ier with the built-in 1.4x tele­con­verter, which in­creases the fo­cal length to 560mm. And to help en­sure sharper im­ages, the lens has a use­ful Vi­bra­tion Re­duc­tion fea­ture, too. $17,000

Su­per­car lovers who’ve al­ways wanted a lap­top that re­minds them of their dream ma­chine should check out Len­ovo’s six­th­gen­er­a­tion X1 Car­bon. Thanks to the car­bon fi­bre used in its con­struc­tion, this lap­top weighs just 1.13kg. It can be spec­i­fied with In­tel’s new­est Cof­fee Lake pro­ces­sors and equipped with a 1TB solid-state drive. With up to 15 hours of bat­tery life, it can go the dis­tance, too. $3159
