A heated ice scraper might be the perfect match for those who live in heavy snow areas. The piece of tech has a long cord that plugs into your car’s cigarette lighter for power. With a handy LED light, you can squeegee day or night for $50. Buy it here.

A windshield protector removes the annoyance of scraping or brushing all together. Attach adjustable straps to your vehicle and it’ll discourage the formation of both ice and snow. Fold and place it in a storage bag when between uses for $23. Buy it here.
