5 under-the-radar gadgets that we love so far

Gemstones

Can Buy or Not has reviewed plenty of gadgets over the last few years almost every day (well, Mondays to Fridays), more than 800 and counting. There have been some that you readers love as well, as well as some gadgets that we really liked, but didn't seem to have piqued your interests. Well, we're hoping to change your minds, so here are five under-the-radar gadgets that you may not be aware of.

There are plenty of things in life that make it easier, and the Xiaomi Mijia Air Pump 1S is one of those. I'll be honest, pumping air into my bicycle's tyres is easy to do, but there's quite a bit of work to get it to the right air pressure. The Mijia Air Pump is powerful enough to fill up a car tyre as well despite its small size.

Apple TV 4K (2022)

Sporting a faster A15 Bionic chip, and a smaller profile, the Apple TV 4K (2022) is also cheaper than before. It's rare that Apple cuts prices on its existing products, but the Apple TV now goes for just S$199. And if you want more storage and an Ethernet port, it's just S$239 (128GB), down from S$299 for the 64GB version previously. In short, this one confirm can buy.

You may be wondering why we are recommending a Wi-Fi 5 router like the Mercusys AC1900 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router. After all, it's already 2024, and Wi-Fi 7 routers are already out. Well, the truth is, this router (also known as MR50G) is cheap. You can get it for S$49, and we all know that's not buying a whole lot of stuff nowadays. So if you're looking for a decent budget router for a shop or rental apartment, the MR50G fits the bill.

Oladance Wearable Stereo

The Oladance Wearable Stereo promises to deliver good sound with comfort, thanks to an open-ear design that rests on, but doesn't go into your ears. While the Oladance sounds better than similar open-ear bone conduction headphones I have tried, the lack of noise isolation means that they aren't for everyone. Unless of course, you're a cyclist or runner who need to be constantly aware of the surroundings.

The 8BitDo Pro 2 is a sequel to the SN30 Pro+, and these two retro-design controllers look almost identical. That aside, the Pro 2 has some significant upgrades. These changes make the 8BitDo Pro 2 one of the best third-party controllers you can buy for less than S$60. Weighing at 228g, it feels great in the hands, thanks to the grips that have a textured finish on the back. A significant part of the weight is due to the controller's 1000mAh rechargeable battery, which is rated for 20 hours of gameplay. The battery bay can also fit two AA batteries, which can be useful in a pinch.
