Mother’s Day is May 8 this year. From e-scooters and drones to wireless dashboard chargers, there’s plenty to please the out-and-about mum.
Segway Ninebot Kickscooter F40A
With e-scooters in vogue, why not gift mum the freedom, fun and versatility of Segway’s front-wheel drive Ninebot? This robust and aesthetically pleasing kickscooter features a good-sized deck for a safe, stable ride and 10-inch pneumatic tyres that can handle off-road conditions as comfortably as the urban commute – and there’s a spare and inner tube included. There are three riding modes – energy-saving Eco, Standard and Sport – and a front mounted LED light for a safe night ride. Perhaps best of all, the Ninebot is fully portable and foldable for quick storage in the garage or on public transport.
Unagi Scooter Model One E500
This sleek e-scooter is a luxurious and lightweight urban rider that can travel 25km on a single charge, with one-click folding at the touch of a button for convenient portability and unobtrusive storage. Dual 250W motors provide plenty of grunt and enough torque to handle hill inclines of 15 degrees, while dual electronic anti-lock brakes ensure a safe stop. Combining precision engineering and state of the art tech, Unagi’s minimalist design offers maximum riding comfort, and this zippy premium model will get mum on the move in safety and style.
Ryze Tello Drone Powered by DJI
The sky’s the limit with this affordable, entry-level drone that does the kind of cool things you’d expect from a pricier model. Designed for user simplicity, the Tello takes off and lands with a single tap, or you can launch it using Throw and Go – just toss it in the air to enable flight. There’s a Bounce mode for up and down flying out of your hand, 8D Flips to perform aerial acrobatics, and a failsafe function for smooth landings should connection be lost. The high quality image processor delivers amazing photos and 720p HD video, while electronic image stabilisation ensures smooth footage.
Scosche MagicGrip Qi Wireless Charging Dash Mount
Mum can keep her phone safely visible and powered up when behind the wheel with this versatile dashboard mount and wireless charger. Once attached to the dash or window with the adhesive pad, the clamp will automatically close and grip the phone securely. The mount swivels a full 360 degrees for the best viewing angle, and there’s no more fumbling about with cables and USB ports – up to 10W of charge is transferred directly to the phone, although it’s important to first check if mum’s phone supports wireless charging. It’s the kind of handy device you don’t realise you need until you have one.
Scosche Power Socket Magic Mount
A magnetic dashboard mount with dual power sockets, the Magic Mount will charge two devices simultaneously and features a fully flexible neck for prime positioning and multiple viewing angles. A magnetic plate anchors a smartphone securely and the main power connection is via the car’s 12V socket. A USB-A port delivers a 12W charge, with the option for 18W fast charging using the USB-C port. For safe, hands-free convenience and charging, the Magic Mount has got mum covered.
