myCharge Adventure Ultra

A real wall outlet you can take with you for $129

A portable phone charger is a no-miss holiday gift for anyone on your list, even yourself. But, don’t be fooled by the cheap options at the convenience store. Not all battery chargers are created equal, and many can be incompatible with your devices, contain batteries that haven’t met safety standards or that will only function for a few charging cycles. myCharge enhances its battery chargers with unique features like built-in charging cables, wall prongs and wall outlets on some of its devices. Their batteries also have twelve layers of safety protection. For Black Friday, myCharge products will be 50% off at Best Buy November 19 – November 26. Make sure you check out my new favorite charger, the AdventureUltra, which is basically a portable wall outlet.

AquaCraft Mini Alligator Tours Airboat RTR
My favorite RC item on the market. If you have never taken a real Air Boat tour, you can now nomp through smaller swamps with the Mini Alligator Tours EP RTR! It’s details and livery are amazing and you can be on the water, learning to do skid turns almost immediately. It’s the simple little RTR that anyone can enjoy.

Construction includes a injection-molded plastic cage and it runs on a6-cell 1100mAh NiMH battery with a standard connector.

Augmented reality drinkware
Tervis, the innovative drinkware company long loved for its fresh and expressive designs, continues to revolutionize the industry with its latest, tech-enabled product that redefines the everyday drinking experience. Through the use of a free augmented reality (AR) app, a computer-generated image is superimposed onto your cup, creating a technologically-enhanced —and incredibly fun— new view of everyone’s favorite American-made tumbler for $19.95.

If you are searching for that perfect gift for that active Mom, Rick joins Sam Crenshaw on SportsRadio 92.9 The Game, here are some suggestions:

HyperChiller Coffee Mug/Brewer

Iced coffee is the perfect summer drink and the HyperChiller is a cool coffee mug that turns hot coffee into iced coffee in 60 seconds, easy to use, and there is no work, it does it all. With the HyperChiller your beverage is exposed to the equivalent of over 30 large ice cubes, but protected by two layers of food grade stainless steel — so there's zero dilution in the process of cooling. The HyperChiller also works on beverages like wine, spirits, tea, juice, water, lemonade, sports drinks or any other non-carbonated beverage you’d like cooled quickly.

The HyperChiller is ready when you are. Just leave it in your freezer, then take it out, pour your beverage in and the HyperChiller will rapidly chill it in just one minute. Mom can even use it a couple times in a row. When she's done, just stick it back in your freezer to use again later. It's compatible with all brewing methods and even fits directly into most full size single cup brewers. A bargain for $29.99 at
