Cutting grass is a common chore, yet few folks who claim to live "green" realize their gas mower puts out more pollution in an hour than several cars combined. The Sunlawn EM-2 Electric Mower ($380) is powered by two easily replaceable 12-volt SLA batteries that let the mower run for more than a full hour on a single charge. Its seven-blade cutting system keeps your lawn looking great, and the relatively silent operation lets you mow at any hour without disturbing the neighbors.
It's always great to find something that has literally hundreds of uses (even if it is named something like this). Jig-A-Loo ($7 at Home Depot stores) is an invisible, odorless, stain-free, lubricant and water repellent that'll take care of just about any job around the house. Invented in Quebec in 1958, this miracle spray is now available in the states for the first time. It works on wood, metal, leather, most plastics and tons of other surfaces. Not to sound like an infomercial, but it lubricates, prevents rust and freeze, waterproofs, de-squeaks and just makes things operate smoother.
Building off the success of their PivLock quick-change eyewear line, Smith has once again jumped ahead with their all-new Attack series. These sunglasses feature magnet-guided snap-on temple pieces that mount directly on a single large lens, allowing the wearer to quickly adjust to changing light conditions without missing a beat. Other new features include a shaped cutout at the top of the lens for increased ventilation, an adjustable nosepiece for maximum wearing comfort, and a new range of ChromaPop lenses to help you keep your eyes on where you're going next.

When we were younger, cordless screwdrivers weren't good for much except putting together toys. Now they are actual tools, tools like the Bosch PS10-2 I-Driver ($140). This 10.8-volt beast features an articulating head that locks in five positions through 90 degrees, advanced "litheon" battery technology, and an electronic clutch. Plus, it comes with two batteries, a 30-minute charger, carrying case, and two bits.
Ever tried to use a multi-tool with just one hand? It's not exactly easy. Gerber is trying to change that with the Flik Multi-Plier ($110). The Flik packs V-cut wire cutters, a saw, and more, all outside the handles, and most can be used one-handed. Plus, Gerber's patented Saf.T.Plus system makes sure the tools stay in place when in use, keeping you safe when on the job.
