LET THERE BE LIGHT
Ring Automotive sells over half a million of these pocket lamps a year. What makes them such an attractive option is that they fit nicely into your pocket, perfect for a quick Land Rover inspection. This upgraded version produces 110 lumens of light while the COB LEDs produce a wider angle of light. Expect a battery life of around seven hours. The useful magnet means you don’t have to hold it while using it.www.ringautomotive.co.uk

^WATERPROOF YOUR PHONE
Most of us have lost a phone to water, so why take the risk? This phone case uses the 100 per cent waterproof Slide Seal System and with a transparent front you can still use the phone while it’s in the case. Big enough to house even the largest of smart phones, including the iPhone 6 Plus. www.over-board.co.uk
