A new kind of electrical meter

Klein Tool’s USB Meters and Testers are designed to measure and monitor the power delivered by their USB ports. These testers, designed to troubleshoot the output on USB ports and detect faulty cords, are becoming an essential tool for electricians as USB ports become more and more common fixtures in modern homes.

Buy the ET920 USB A and USB-C Meter on Amazon here.

Security camera on the go

The Reolink Go is a security camera that can easily be moved from one location to another, making it a perfect solution for monitoring jobsites. The option for solar power means that the Reolink Go does not need to be plugged into an outlet to run, and it operates on 3G or 4G networks, sending alerts and information to your phone without the need for a Wi-Fi network (which are rare on jobsites). The Reolink Go is available for purchase online and in stores for $239.99.

Durable digital padlock

The Tapplock One+  Smart Padlock can be opened in three ways: morse code (seriously), scanning a fingerprint, and through Tapplock’s smartphone app. Being able to grant their crew access to locked tool chests from a remote location is a potentially huge timesaver for contractors.

You can buy one here.
