Excel tube squeezerExcel tube squeezer

Return of the tube squeezer.
Here is a new take on the good old tube-squeezer. You know, the one your grandmother used to get the last from the tubes. The old ones are hardly available except from contemporary antiques stores, so we were pleased to find this new interpretation from Danish Excel at Formens Hus in Hällefors the other day. It was SEK 65:- (about USD 8:70), but we got it anyway. For even though more and more tubes are plastic, good old Kalle's Kaviar is still packed in metal. From Excel. Bought at Formens Hus

Normann collapsible silicone funnel
The Normann collapsible funnel.
We use funnels now and then. There is always something that is supposed to go into another vessel. But funnels take up a lot of room in our cupboards and drawers, and what you store is basically air. Designer Boje Estermann has gotten rid of that air in this collapsible funnel for Danish design firm Normann. It is flexible enough to be collapsed, sturdy enough to create a reliable funnel and durable enough to be folded again and again. Available in red, yellow, green and black. We got ours at Formens Hus in Hällefors the other day. It was SEK 165:- (about USD 22:-). From Normann. Bought at Formens Hus.

24V car rechargeable flashlight

Car lighter socket recharging flashlight.
Everyone who keeps a flashlight with dead batteries in their car, please let us see your hands in the air. We thought so. This seems to be a rather common problem; we mean, how often do you check the batteries in the flashlight in the trunk... like us, we guess like never. However, there is help. This light is charged in the 12V lighter outlet in your car and can always be ready for service. Made by Xacta and for sale at Shop Lifestyle for USD 19:95 (about SEK 140:-). From Shop Lifestyle.

Trust battery tester
New clever battery tester
.
Anyone who ever tried to check batteries with those ridiculous little dots, must clearly see the need for a product like this. It is from Trust and should according to British Tech Digest have been on the market by May. It handles NiMh-, NiCd-, and lithium-batteries as well as ordinary alkali. Testing templates for AA, AAA-, C-, D-, N- and 9V-sizes. From Trust via Tech Digest.

Nicorette nicotine inhalers

There's obviously smoke without fire.
This might sound like the tiresome rant of a born-again, but today (when the Swedish restaurant no smoking law is in effect) it is two years and twelve days since I quit smoking. It was not entirely easy, but a collection of mysterious spots on my vocal chords and frequent use of a nicotine inhaler helped me through. What does this have to do with smart, you may ask. Well, after 24 months and 12 days, I think it was a pretty smart decision to make. And that the Nicorette inhaler is a really smart invention. But since I still remember how boring I thought the new-quitters were, this is the last you will ever see me write about it. Everyone is entitled to make his and her own decisions. Nicorette.
