Contrary to what you may believe, you don’t actually need to enlist the help of exhibit to customize your car. Adding a bunch of exciting new features to your old ride can help make a mundane car feel brand new. And it doesn’t need to empty your bank balance to achieve it. You can make life in either lane a lot more luxurious and affordable. Just as you need functional car parts, sometimes you just need to treat your car too. Here are just a few of our favorite car hacks that make driving a lot more fun (and easier).
1) Get a Mini Fridge
If you’re about to embark on a long trip, there are fewer things you’ll dread more than going without refreshments. Now, there is always the option of pulling into a service station, but quite often that involves parting with far more money than you care for. With a little cost upfront, you can get a mini fridge installed. Pack your own lunch and you’ll never have to worry about it staying fresh again.
2) Install Backseat Screens
How often have you found yourself in the midst of a long road trip with the family, only to be met with cries of “are we there yet?” Not only is this distracting from the road, but it’s also just about the most grating aspect of parenthood. What’s the best way to keep your kids entertained on the road? Letting them binge-watch their favorite TV shows, of course! You can get built-in headrest monitors, but this can be quite an expensive endeavor. Instead, why not try installing two iPad units to the back of your seats? As long as you’ve got WiFi connection, your kids will be sitting comfortably for the duration of the journey.
3) Update Your Sound System
Often the first place that car owners start when they’re thinking about making some material improvements to their car. Isn’t that the fun of driving? Cruising along with the windows down and your favorite music blaring from your sound system? You don’t need to install a barrage of sub-woofers to get some quality sound through your speakers. Simply upgrade your stereo with a new head unit for a clearer sound. Often, the default system that comes with your car wasn’t designed to produce the best sound, but it can be easily replaced no matter your budget.
4) Power Up
When you’re feeling run down and tired, what do you need more than anything? For me, the answer is always a cup of coffee. And your car is exactly the same. Investing in a multi-functional power bank like the Power cup Inverter could be the difference maker on a busy morning. With the ability to convert your car’s DC power source into a powerful AC outlet, you can keep all your devices charged and running wherever you are. How often have you found yourself having to choose between your phone and your built-in cigarette lighter? Now, you’ll never have to choose again, with the ability to power up to three devices at once. Pretty neat, huh?
