USB camping lamp and FM radio
In the long list of pointless USB devices, this USB camping lamp and FM radio must surely be challenging for top spot.
Granted, you could have taken a full charged laptop with you into the country – and you might need a lamp and radio. But chances are your laptop isn’t going to get a signal in the wilds of Wales (I know – I’ve tried), so it’s probably surplus kit on that hiking holiday. However, it also works with 3x AA batteries, it’s small (7.3 x 7.3 x 10.0cm) and features an FM radio with auto scan and retractable aerial, not to mention the torch/lamp for those dark nights in the middle of nowhere.
And the best point of all – it’s cheap. Just $12.
