Ring’s Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Don’t know what to get your loved ones for Christmas? Not looking forward to the panic of last minute shopping? Take a breath – Ring has collected a few ideas so that you can give them what they want this Christmas, and they can use them well into 2018.

RIL80 – Extendable LED Lamp

Everybody has a DIY enthusiast in their life. Whether they enjoy fixing up cars or want to take their plumbing problems into their own hands, a trusty portable light is the ideal tool. The RIL80 Extendable LED Lamp also has a torch that can be angled up to 90° and placed onto any magnetic base for hands-free use.

RMS20 – 3 Way Smart USB

If you know someone who loves to go on road trips with friends, or would like to keep the kids occupied in the back of the car, Ring’s 3 Way Smart USB is an ideal gift. With three sockets, no one needs to be fighting over a charger, and the Smart Universal Fast Charging Technology charges any mobile devices at an optimal rate.

RAC630 – 12V Digital Tyre Inflator with LED Light

Whether a cycling enthusiast, a parent whose kids love to play sports outside, or someone that drives around frequently with soon-to-be flat tyres, a digital air compressor could be the perfect gift. Inflating a tyre to 35psi in under three minutes, this 12V Automatic Digital Tyre Inflator with LED Light can save anyone a tonne of time if they want to get back on the road quickly, or get their kids back out and playing.

RSC612 – Smart Charger

All vehicles have batteries that need some care. Whether it’s a motorhome, a 4×4, or a classic car, you can’t go wrong with a Smart Changer. For comprehensive battery care, whatever the vehicle, the RSC612 Smart Charger is a motoring essential. This one device will diagnose, recondition, service and charge vehicle batteries to makes them last longer, work better and be more reliable. It can be used on lead acid, gel, EFB, AGM and calcium batteries on vehicles up to 5.0L in size, including those with STOP/START technology.

 

RBGDC200 – Full HD 2.0” Dash Camera

If you have a loved one who has just passed their test, a dash camera could capture all of their first driving moments, as well as help keep them safe. The RBGDC200 Full HD 2.0” Dash Camera automatically switches on when you start the engine – so you never miss a thing – and turns off once you park up – meaning no risk of it draining your battery.

Winter Car Essentials

Winter Car Essentials

The unstable weather conditions around this time of year consistently cause problems for drivers. Whether your car is prone to be breakdowns or the roads where you live are hazardous in the snow, be prepared for anything this winter with Ring’s Winter Car Essentials.

Starting your car

A surprise snow storm and drop in temperatures is not an unlikely occurrence, especially with the variable weather here in the UK. Keep de-icer and ice scraper in your car and at home so you’re always prepared if the moment arises. Avoid using hot water to defrost your car as this could cause any chips or scratches on your windscreen to turn into cracks.

Make sure your wiper blades are up to scratch – it’s recommended that you change them every twelve months so that they keep your windscreen clear and your view unobstructed.

Keeping in contact

A completely charged phone is always a good idea when travelling – whether you’ve broken down or are lost, a phone may end up being your saviour. Don’t be one of those people that forgets to charge their phone before a long snowy journey, and get yourself a multi-socket and phone charger that will always be in your car.

Dealing with road hazards

When ice and snow can cover up much of the road small, sharp items, such as glass, can be hidden and cause punctures to tyres. With an Emergency Tyre Kit already in the car, you will be able to get yourself home without any need for tools or wheel changes, keeping you on the roadand moving until you can get your tyre changed.

Accidents are more likely in winter, and a dash camera may help to reduce the time taken to settle an insurance claim after an incident on the roads this winter. One with a GPS tracker will help to pin point where an accident takes place and give further information to insurance providers.

Restarting your car

It’s always a good idea to carry Jump Leads in your car in case of an emergency. In the summer months, waiting for a breakdown service may be fine, but in the cold, blustery weather, jump starting your car and setting off quickly is definitely more ideal.

If you do a lot of travelling by yourself, investing in a Lithium Jumpstarter is a great move. Small enough to fit in your glove box, and with enough power to jumpstart a 2.0L engine, you’ll be back on the road in no time.

 

 

Driving at this time of year can feel a bit nerve-wracking, but having these winter driving essentials at hand will give you peace of mind. Keep safe this winter, and happy driving!

Dash Cameras – your personal eye witness

More and more UK motorists are beginning to see the benefits of having an in-car camera. So why are sales for these compact devices increasing so rapidly?

Crash for Crash and insurance fraud

Crash for Cash is one of the biggest vehicle-based crimes, and there is no sign of it slowing down. Highly organised criminals and opportunists usually stage or provoke an ‘accident’ by making an innocent motorist crash into the back of the fraudster’s car. The fraudster will then submit an exaggerated claim for vehicle damage, personal injury and loss of earnings. The honest policy holder will have to pick up the bill, with an extra sum being added to their insurance premiums.

The Insurance Fraud Bureau states that Crash for Cash scams are costing UK insurance companies a staggering £392 million a year. A dash camera is an effective way to combat this increasing problem. It is your very own personal eye witness, giving you concrete video evidence to prove you were not at fault. It’s a sure fire way to look after your insurance premiums.

Cheaper car insurance

As dash cam popularity increases, a number of UK insurance companies are offering discounts for motorists who have them installed. Dash cams benefit everyone; the insurance companies will spend less time and resource investigating the case and the driver can prove that their testimony is accurate.

Protection on the road with Ring

All of our dash cams are hassle free, easy to install and set up. Simply plug in and you’re ready to go. They all have 1080 resolution for clear and crisp footage and allows you to pick up specific details – like vehicle registrations. They automatically turn on when the engine is started and turn off when you park up, meaning they won’t drain your battery. A loop recording system is built-in, which means even on smaller capacity SD cards recording will not stop due to being full, as new recordings replace the oldest footage.

Ultimate dash cam protection

The RBGDC200 is our ultimate dash cam. It has a wide-angled 140 degree 6 element lens coupled with a 3MP sensor, that won’t miss any of the action. It performs exceptionally well at night and has GPS tracking, allowing you to see where you have driven and the speed you were travelling, by using the provided software linked to Google Maps™. It gives you unparalleled protection on the road.
