Kono Corporation’s solution to the problem is a simple pairing of two words. Increased visibility. The S.Light, which should be as much a standard carry-on accessory as a car jack or adjustable wrench, is a signaling beacon that lets drivers know there is a broken down vehicle ahead, up to 200 yards away, giving them enough time to react by changing lanes and avoiding a collision, or stopping near you to help you. The S.Light, which stands for Safe-Secure-Signal, is a portable and flexible display panel that uses a rotating LED screen for high visibility at night and a foldable reflector panel during the day. The emergency panel comes with a solid magnetic base and a flexible gooseneck on which the rotating LED module sits.

With a newly detailed base that features a wide cross-shaped design, increasing its stability, the CrossJack is the same old jack in a slightly new but noticeably safer design, thanks to its stable base. The design of the CrossJack makes you wonder why car-jacks don’t already have wide bases. Its redesign is simple but effective. A set of foldable plates are found at the bottom of the CrossJack which opens into a wide cross, giving the jack a base spaced at four points. This larger footprint prevents the car from being accidentally knocked off the jack and landing on the ground, injuring anyone who might be working on it. The modified design of the CrossJack sports a base nearly half an inch thick and made of stainless steel, giving it a sturdy sturdiness that makes the jack safer than most. When you’re done, the jack folds up to take up exactly the same space as any regular jack.
Designed by a team of engineers and innovators, the Norshire Mini has very compelling reasons to make it your essential in-car equipment. The shape of the cylinder earns it the required brownie points, as that is what makes it easy to store. It houses a small OLED screen and a capacitive touch, to make it easy to use. The display shows the current tire pressure and then the setting with which you want to inflate the tire. Some of the intuitive features include a built-in microcomputer that measures tire pressure when hooked to a tire.
The Gerber Armbar Slim Drive has just the screwdriver, bottle opener, and a sharp blade – giving it a very slim profile – no more than a full-size writing instrument. This gives you the practical freedom to take it with you anytime (literally anytime in the real world) as opposed to other thick, heavy EDCs that you at most consider carrying in your backpack – no. in your pocket. The advantage here is the specialized function that will help you get through whatever you need. The multi-tool is designed to give you substantial gripping power while cutting with the blade and driving or lifting the screwdriver tool. On top of that, the frame lock holds the tool firmly when cutting through difficult objects or in weird self-defense situations while walking down the alley on a dark night. The form factor of the whole tool reinforces the elegance of the design, with a falcon shape when folded giving it more strength and character.

Built with a 120,000mAh (444Wh) battery, the EV450 can charge a laptop 8 times and even has enough power to run a desktop computer for 4 hours.
