We may not live in the middle of the UAE, however that isn't to say we can't find some use for the sun. So, how about a solar powered tyre gauge for measuring the amount of air and pressure in your tyres?

They can also be charged conventionally through connection to the cigarette lighter and are wise green car accessories to have.
