Here are some recent purchases:
Klau digital crane scale, use for hanging weight or measuring bow draw weight.
https://smile.amazon.com/Klau-Portab...dp/B07BHLR9DN/

If you work on vehicles, Lincoln Industrial fluid extractor - great for extracting fluid, but I use it for measuring and filling fluid on transmissions, diffs, etc where there is no dipstick: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01NCWHEP0/

And used heavily during the winter blast and power outages, the Anker powercore battery: https://smile.amazon.com/Anker-Power...dp/B00Z9QVE4Q/

I just purchased a heated vest for my Kansas bow hunts and I think it's going to help a lot.

Rockwell sonicrafter oscillating tool. I thought it was kind of a gimmick at first, but now it is one of my favorite tools. I don’t use it all the time, but there are those special times that it is perfect.

It says it will start a 7L diesel. Will it start a modern diesel truck with a dead battery?

I have picked up some of the various rechargeable batteries on Amazon. Some have been great, others dont seem to want to hold a charge over a couple of cycles.

We just used the Amazon choice ones last year. We change our them every other time we fill feeders (approximately 10 weeks) and never had any stop working. When you are running 17 cameras from multiple makers that can add up ina hurry.

I dont own anything it wont start yet. Ive cranked 7.3L diesel from stone dead mulitple times which are hard as heck to crank.

Also cranked several of our bigger tractors that are around 8.5L and no problems with them.

I also use mine to run 12V diesel pumps that dont have batteries hooked up etc.

If yall get a chance, look at the brand called TideWe. Bought a jacket at Christmas for the wife and it was hands down the cheapest I could find with great reviews. They do Heated jackets, heated vests, waders, bino harnesses, etc. Plus the run some crazy good sales ALL THE TIME! they are running 20% off right now on anything over $90. you do have to go directly to there website for this.

The best thing I've bought off amazon has to be my 6Ah batteries for my Ryobi tools. work great for the outdoor tools like the weedeater, blower, and hedge clippers! Hell of a lot cheaper than the name brand batteries too!
