Unbelievable that another year will pass. But unlike the past two years amid the pandemic, This year has been more stable as remote work has evolved into a hybrid workforce.
This means that we have the freedom to choose where we work and the opportunity to improve our routines. This is what led me to pick my top three gadgets for 2022.

We can’t talk about 2022 without mentioning the record number of days of shedding loads. It hinders performance. But I’ve been saved several times with a Geewiz 1 200V inverter equipped with a 100Ah battery.
Online retailers have a wide selection of self-branded inverters that start at entry-level prices. Like I reviewed this year. It has a price tag of R5 795 which is great if you are on a budget. I started using it before steps 4 to 6 became common.
Provides up to 720W of power for use This means it can power my TV, router, mobile devices and laptop for hours. But I mainly use it when my laptop is not charging and for my Nutribullet (blender) so I can have breakfast in the early hours of the morning.
Geewiz inverters are an emergency solution. Due to the longevity of lead-acid batteries, however, you can upgrade to lithium-ion to withstand more than 2,000 duty cycles, which is ideal for stages 4 to 6.
