A Smartphone with a decent camera counts as a "gadget" for me I'm old enough to say that. It totally changed the way I work and relax.

The Vox amPlug changed the way I practice on my instruments.

But my favourite ~R10 gadget is this little tool which does so much for such a simple looking thing. Edit: It's a wire stripper and punch tool used in network cabling. It's easier to use and works better than its more expensive brethren. CAB-T-CS-E-600x600.jpg

Mmm... Tough one. So many things I can't go without these days.

But for me it has to be my DSLR. Especially with the addition of the F2.8 zoom lenses.

And close second is a vehicle with cruise control.

If I had to pick one, and only one... my Beer Hunter (R180 odd)

Have it in my laptop bag. Very very useful, even bought its brother (Smartknife) for home because I couldn't find another one of these.

After this comes my Ezviz wire free wifi cameras.

RCBS Case Master® Gauging Tool

The Case Master gauging tool quickly measures several important case and cartridge dimensions, including case neck concentricity, uniformity and thickness, as well as case length and bullet run-out. All are important to accuracy and safety. It also detects case head separation before symptoms are apparent on the outside of case. The tool is much quicker than a dial caliper and makes a tedious job simple and less tiring.

Probably one of these USB OTG adapters:



Has saved my arse many a time when I needed a network driver urgently out in the field and could download it using my mobile data, or when I messed up my phone's bootloader and needed to use it to flash the recovery again.
