Father’s Day — in fact any day — is a good day for getting useful and enjoyable devices for making life more successful and easier to work with. Even if you are buying these devices for yourself, that doesn’t make it any less helpful for being outside during the day or at night or with music playing without weighing down one’s ear or having special colorful lighting. That’s why the following is so worth getting, because it will add to the enjoyability of one’s life.
MEROSS SMART WI-FI LED LIGHT STRIP
The Smart WiFi LED Light Strip is exactly what it sounds like — a strip of LEDs that can be illuminated remotely through an app. Specifically through the free iOS/Android Meross app. Additionally the strip can be activated via Apple’s HomeKit + Siri (requiring a hub like the AppleTV, other devices), Amazon’s Alexa, Google Assistant and SmartThings. The strip connects through WiFi and so a home network operating at 2.4KHz, which is normal for most folks (and has a large radius for connectivity). Once the strip is set up and powered by AC (no outside use is recommended), brightness, colors and the color temperature (ranging from 2700K-6500K which is Daly light) are under your control. It also supports scenes with different effects and can be a lot of fun or just used as mood lighting.

FENIX TK20R V2.0 RECHARGEABLE TACTICAL FLASHLIGHT
A high performance tactical flashlight is no different in use that one of those inexpensive models, except it will provide greater illumination and a better feature-set. First off the TK20R recharges itself through USB-C, so the 5000mAh battery is always able to get a charge. One handed operation through a tail switch makes use fast, be it just a momentary on versus constant, while a secondary tail switch handles strobe and the five brightness levels. Expect a great distance of lighting illumination (like over , 519 yards) since there’s 3000 Lumens (max) working. But all this wouldn’t make it worthwhile if the TK20R wasn’t so hard to damage — being all metal, impact and IP68 waterproofing (the USB-C port is also protected) and high tolerance against temperatures. Holster and lanyard additions are extras and for sure it comes with that rechargeable battery.

HAELEUM MOSSY OAK CAMOUFLAGE DARIAN INSECT SHIELD REPELLANT SHIRT
Summer is coming and that means heat, but it also means bugs — specifically mosquitos who love any exposed skin. To combat this without having to slather on tons of chemicals (or hide in an area where there’s some electronic device or burning candle) there’s DARIEN — the EPA-registered Insect Shield Repellent shirt. So you just put it on (men’s sizes coming in at XS-3XL) and whoosh there’s protection that goes along with you wherever you go (obviously), with protection against bugs — meaning mosquitoes but also ticks and others. It’s not just a bite but the results of that bite, which could be the Zika and West Nile viruses, Lyme disease and Dengue fever. Sounds scary so why even give that a chance to occur? Don’t. Meanwhile the DARIEN also fights against the sun (50+ UPF) and being anti-microbial reduces scent too. Maybe the best part of this moisture-wicking 100% polyester material is that it can go right into the wash and come out without a loss of effectiveness (tested through 70 launderings which is its expected life).

1MORE COMFOBUDS MINI HYBRID ACTIVE NOISE CANCELING EARBUDS
The ComfoBuds Mini has a lot going for it — to start it’s pretty small as compared to most other earbuds, which translates into a lot less weight (3.7g) and so the fit in the ear puts a lot less drag over time. This is aided by picking the best silicone ear tip provided. Now even though it’s small, the Mini manages to have a lot of tech inside — the most obvious being its ability to cancel noise with a 40dB depth using 2 microphones. Obviously each ‘bud has a rechargeable battery, since there’s no cabling between the two earbuds, and the case holds more time for charging up the ‘buds — the whole “package” being small enough to fit in a reasonably sized pocket or pretty much anything a person is carrying.
The Mini features the same quality drivers (i.e., speakers) as one would expect from 1MORE, and the 7mm drivers are tuned for a well balanced sound. Multiple listening modes allow for a more customized sound, and the Bluetooth 5.2 is the most recent for a stable audio signal for receiving. Water resistance and durability are trademarks of 1MORE and the Mini continues that tradition. And while black is fine, they’re great in red. For more details go to https://usa.1more.com/
