No matter how hard you try, your handheld device is never at the perfect angle. That’s because you’re always moving around. But this 360-degree swivel stand fits any size tablet or smartphone and makes it easy to turn the screen as you move. Use it in the kitchen to display your favorite recipe while cooking, at the office so you’ll never miss another alert or anywhere else you need quick access to your phone. (Komando, $12)

There’s nothing worse than needing a quick charge while on the go — and, whether you’re at the airport or in a busy coffee shop, there are never enough outlets available. With this charger you don’t need one. You just need to place it out on a flat surface or mount it in a window where it can receive direct sunlight. (Amazon, $19
