USB gadget price analysis: Amazon Australia vs Australian retail

We've compared USB gadgets from Amazon Australia to see how their prices stack up against other Aussie retailers.

As the number of USB ports on any given laptop or desktop computer began to multiply, so did the number of weird and wonderful USB-powered gadgets. It started off innocent enough, with USB-powered fans becoming a cheap and easy stocking filler but as time went on, the gadgets started to get more creative and sometimes even a little weird.

Fans, lamps, clocks and… heated gloves. These are just a few of the wacky gadgets you can hang from the side of your laptop, but they’re far from the strangest.

If you’re looking for an easy present for someone you barely know or simply what to liven up your desk space, look no further than our round-up of the most popular USB gadgets in Australia.
