10 cool Desk Gadgets that’ll make you the Office hero

As much as we don’t like to admit it, we spend a lot of time at work. Most of us work longer than the usual 9- 5; (to my manager, if you’re reading this, I always do because I’m a model employee), but that’s still more hours than you spend anywhere else. Sigh. That’s why at Gadget Comparer we’re big advocates for making our work surroundings as fun and comfortable as possible. Cool desk gadgets anyone?

There are lots of cool gadgets out there, but few will ensure your seat is the social hub of the office. Whether you’re planning on brightening your own desk or gifting one to a colleague prone to procrastination, there’s sure to be something on our top spot list that’ll make you the office hero!

10 cool Desk Gadgets that’ll take your Office from zero to hero:

  1. Hot Cookie USB Cup Warmer

Let’s be real, no one is getting through the working day without at least 5 cups of coffee. Whether you actually drink them or simply to hang around in the kitchen talking to colleagues, (note to my manager: I definitely don’t do this), then this cool desk gadget is a must.

We all know the literal worst thing is drinking the cold dregs of a tea or coffee. So, now, thanks to this nifty USB plugin, that hell-on-earth experience will be a thing of the past.

  1. USB LED Clock Fan

It’s no longer necessary to bake in the office heat (which is perpetually turned up too high) with your own personal fan. But this isn’t just any fan; this is a neon USB clock fan.

The bendable lead means you can position the fan in any direction you choose. The soft propeller arms mean you shouldn’t hurt yourself, even if you accidentally touch them. And the neon LED clock ensures this is the ‘coolest’ fan you’ll ever own.

  1. Mini Desktop Arcade Machine

In this case the old saying “size doesn’t matter” really rings true as it comes preloaded with 240 retro 16-bit games! The sport, puzzle and arcade fantasy classics are delivered via a 2.5” colour screen, an 8-way functioning joystick and two buttons. It’s even completed by built-in speakers to enjoy sound effects for a full experience.

  1. The Decision Maker

For the “too tough to call” or “it’s Friday afternoon and we went to go to pub” decisions, grab yourself one of these Decision Makers.

Simply swing the silver ball so that it moves across the different answers on the base: yes, no and (rather unhelpfully), maybe. It’ll eventually get influenced by magnets in the base that’ll hold it above an answer. Job done! Off to the pub now then?

  1. Solar Tree Charger

Global warming is real and you can do your bit to help – even while you’re at work! Keep your digital devices working at their best while leaving no chemical pollution, carbon footprint or ozone depletion.

Money doesn’t grow on trees – but electricity can!
