Here’s a fun way to freak out those loud neighbors. The Nuclear Doorbell has a 20 meter operating range at 433MHz. When pressed it plays a mega-loud siren, flashes yellow lights and yells at the unsuspecting victim. At a size of 200 x 190mm, it requires no wiring and runs on batteries (included.) You can get the doorbell for £15.99 (~$23.00.) This might also be a deterrent for car thieves as who can resist pushing a button that looks harmless?

Hyun-A Ko’s Toaster Battery Charger sucks up most sizes of lithium ion batteries. Place one in the upper slot, push the handle down, and after a while it will pop back up with a full recharge.
