Gadget fix

Net a neat-looking portable stove, pump up the music, track your fitness three ways, organise your fridge like a pro — and aim for some light relief in your lavatory

Bowled over

You might wonder why they need a night-light for their lavatory, but the creators of Illumibowl (American, of course) believe their new gadget is a must-have. Simply put, it illuminates the lavatory bowl so it’s easy to find when in need of a wee in the middle of the night. Of course, you could just turn the light on, but where’s the fun in that? Originally funded on Kickstarter
in 2014, Illumibowl clips on to your lavatory bowl and comes in a variety of colours.

Aldi fishing stove

While it’s said to be ideal for fishing trips, this two-ring stove would work for campers, too. With a 3.8kW output per burner and stainless-steel heat shields, it will make short work of any light meal (perfect for freshly caught fish). The stove has foldable legs with rubber feet and comes with a handy carry bag. It goes on sale today, though, so hot-foot it to your local Aldi to land one.

Plantronics BackBeat Sense headphones

These clever wireless headphones can control Bluetooth devices up to 100 metres away and are sensitive to your own mechanics — playback pauses as soon as you slip off the cans and resumes when you put them back on. They are also comfortable thanks to memory-foam ear pads and a self-adjusting headband. The headphones usually cost €179, but you can get them for just €89 when you buy Vodafone’s new Smart Platinum 7 handset at Vodafone stores.

Devialet Gold Phantom wireless speaker

There is no exact release date but the Devialet Gold Phantom has been promised before the end of July, so by our calculations you could be clicking “add to cart” in the next few days. At €2,590, the Gold is one for committed audiophiles with deep pockets, or perhaps audiophiles who have yet to be committed. But it packs a lot of bang for your buck — an astonishing 4,500 watts, or eight times more power than the brand’s first speaker. It supports all the main streaming services and has a frequency response range of 14Hz to 27kHz. Register your interest now on the Devialet website to get an email when it lands.
