Eton Scorpion

The super powerful, master-of-all outdoor gadgets, Eton Scorpian has a torch, USB charger and radio. (If you tried the shaken not stirred nonsense but it didn’t work for you, then there’s even a bottle opener for your beers.)

This is the gadget to charge your gadgets. Small but mighty, the iGo Powerxtender charger offers power to all your regular spy gadgets: up to 10 hours of extra talk time, 20 hours of playing time and 28 hours of listening.

The energyEGG turns your appliances off when you leave the room, cutting your energy usage dramatically.  It means you don’t have to remember to turn the telly off before you embark on your mission – perfect for Bond, whose gadgets do all the hard for him.

If the autumn has taken your spark and the thought of staying indoors throughout the winter is getting you down, then why not try something new to keep you entertained? How about a touch of magic?!

In the uSwitch office we like to think of alternative ways to entertain ourselves and with our latest energy-efficient products we haven’t had to look too hard. There’s a certain charm about them that’s made us turn all Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee. Be dazzled by our ‘magical’ energy efficient products and use them to convince oblivious onlookers that you are actually a very skilled magician…

Top five ‘magical’ products…
