Owning and driving a car help us learn a few tricks along the way to save as much money as possible. Some of these practical lessons involve first-hand suffering. But sigh no more because technology is here to deliver you from all that misery. Following the last article about money-saving car gadget, we have identified another 5 more gizmos which will decrease the odds of you losing money inadvertently.

1. Telematics app

In layman’s terms, this smartphone app’s basic function is to rate your driving performance by keeping a diary which covers the usual speed you drive at, your handling on roads, trip destinations, driving stability, date, etc. These recorded data then will be converted into points which accumulate into a cutback to your annual insurance premium (10% at the best). It may not sound much but imagine the portion taken out of your income to pay the insurer, quite a lot to put it. What more is that most of these apps are free to download, so no worry about more investment.

2. Scan gauge

What’s neat about the scan gauge is that the device is a fusion of multiple gadgets which in turn keeps track of multiple aspects of your car. These include distance travelled, average and real-time fuel consumption, torque output percentage, and how to manage the money spent on fuel efficiently, which matters a great deal in the case of petrol being able to soar high randomly. Because at the end of the day, it is always a wise move to outlay a multifunctional gadget to cover your back rather than one with a single function only.

3. Solar car battery charger

We all should know that even when a car is turned off, a certain amount of energy is still in need to keep some car features functioning properly so that the car will not fail you. This means the car battery will continue working even when you’re not driving, leading to a gradual drain of energy and in the end, a dead battery (if not checked often enough). One very simple way to tackle this issue is to get yourself a Solar Battery Charger for the car. This avoids you from all the problems relating to dead battery, saving time and sparing you the discomfort of using public transport.

4. Trunk organizer

This simple tool’s function seems to be expendable but here you need to see the bigger picture to appreciate it. The organizing job for the boot space doesn’t merely mean keeping the storage compartment in order, it also helps with determining what to bring with you and what not, thus regulating the total mass (including passengers) being carried by car, as the heavier the cargo is, the more fuel wasted to overcome the rolling drag.

This involves direct training which is provided by loads of companies who offers different packages of different prices.
