Charge, Connect and Locate Your Smartphone Plus Store Stuff with GOkey

GoKey

So you’re thinking of going on a trip. Your phone might be sleek and compact, but its accessories aren’t. You’ve got an external memory card to store extra stuff, a locator that comes with a sticker and a remote in case you lose your phone, plus a charger completer with its cord to power up your phone when it’s running low on juice. You might as well get a bag to store all this stuff…or you could skip everything and just get the GOkey instead.

The GOkey is a compact device that functions as all of the above, minus the bulk. It fits easily into your keyring so you won’t have to think twice about it, since you wouldn’t leave the house without your keys now, would you?

JUMPR is an External Battery That Can Even Jump Start Your Car

Jumpr External Battery

If you had to choose between JUMPR and another portable external battery, then you should choose JUMPR all the way. Aside from providing some back-up power to your mobile devices when you need it the most, the JUMPR is even powerful enough to jump start your car! So put away those cables for a moment and forget calling a friend for help; with the JUMPR in your dash, your car will be up and running in no time.

Automobiles and motorycles run on 12 Volts. The JUMPR provides 12 Volts of power at peak 300 Amps to ensure that your dead automobile or motorycle battery can be brought back to life. 300 Amps is enough to jumpstart almost all 4-Cylinder and 6-Cylinder engines as well as possibly enough to jump start more depending on type of model.

Charge Phones and Laptops on the Go With the GoPlug Charging Bag

GoPlug Bag

In this day and age, most people can’t bear to be without their smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other mobile devices. However, this is inevitable as all these gadgets run on batteries and they’ll eventually run out. I mean, you can’t exactly charge ‘em up any time you want to if you’re away from home or traveling and currently don’t have access to an outlet. Sure, unless you’ve got your power bank, but even those need to be charged eventually, too.

Cue the GoPlug charging bags which are currently up for funding on Kickstarter! Aside from being a spacious and sturdy bag that can be used to carry your travel essentials and gadgets, it also comes with a battery pack that has enough capacity to charge your phone up to six times! Its makers add that it can be used to charge tablets twice over, and double the battery life of your laptop when it’s plugged in.

Python Cords Keep Your Chargers From Breaking

Python Cord

The problem isn’t the charger; it’s the cord. I’ve had several chargers for my laptop break and it’s not so much the charger itself than the cord connecting it to my laptop. This is a problem experienced by laptop and Macbook users, especially those who travel a lot. The cord bears the brunt of the stress as you wrap it around your charger or cram it haphazardly in your laptop bag because you’re in a rush to leave.

The solution comes in the form of the Python Cord, which wraps around your charger to fortify and provide extra support at the stress points (and common point of failure for the charger cords) to prevent the cords from breaking.

TravelCard Smartphone Charger Fits In Your Wallet

TravelCard Charger0

 

There are many credit card-shaped charger adapters out there, but no actual chargers that fit right into your wallet–until now, that is. The TravelCard is slightly thicker than your average credit card and it holds up to five hours of extra talk time, 4.5 hours of Internet use, or 98 hours of standby time. That’s pretty impressive considering its compact size.

Using it is as simple as 1-2-3: just fish it out of your wallet, plug it into your phone’s hub, and you’re good to go. It comes built with either an integrated Lightning or Micro USB charging cable, so it’s compatible with most iOS and Android devices.Continue Reading

Carbon Solar Watch Can Charge Your Battery On the Go

Energy Bionics Watch

Power banks come in handy when you need to recharge your device and are nowhere near a power outlet. Phone cases with built-in battery packs are another option, but they’re limited in availability to certain models only. An alternative to these is the Carbon solar watch by Energy Bionics.

Aside from being a classic-looking timepiece, it also functions as a backup power source for your smartphone or mobile devices that charge via a microUSB port.Continue Reading

PhoneSoap Charges Your Phone And Sanitizes It, Too

Phonesoap Charger

 

Would you press your cheek against a toilet seat? I wouldn’t. But like me, you probably wouldn’t think twice about picking your phone up and holding it up to your face to make or answer a call. But here’s the kicker: a study done a few years ago has revealed that some phones are actually dirtier and more germ-infested than toilet seats.

It makes sense, considering how people don’t really wash their hands before tapping the screen or wipe their phones down with alcohol regularly. If this little tidbit bugs you, then you might want to get the PhoneSoap. It’s a charger that also works as a phone sanitizer. Just pop your phone into the chamber and activate the built-in UV-C lamps to sanitize your phone in just four minutes. It comes with a built-in 5V USB port, which works with most phone cables nowadays.

The PhoneSoap Charger is available for $50.
