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

Wake Up to the Smell of Deliciousness: Oscar Mayer’s Bacon Alarm Clock

Oscar Meyer Bacon Alarm Clock0

 

Whoever invented alarm clocks got it all wrong. If you want to get people out of bed, then you might want to give them a better reason to do so. A wailing alarm clock (with an occasionally defective snooze button that makes the entire process a hundred times more annoying) is clearly not what most people have in mind.

Alarm clock makers should take a cue from Oscar Mayer. They’ve come up with the Wake Up and Smell the Bacon app and iPhone dongle duo that basically wakes people up with the delicious scent of bacon.

VGA Connector Stand: So That’s Where It Went!

VGA Connector Phone Stand

 

What’s hot one moment can quickly go obsolete in the next. The VGA connector has been a staple in terms of connectors, but someone could come up with an alternative any moment now to replace it. Before it completely disappears (and goes out of style?), the enterprising folks at Meninos decided to hollow it out and transform it into a stand for your smartphone.

A suction cup is attached on one end to hold your phone in place, while the rubber stand is shaped with a flat bottom so that it can rest steadily on any flat surface. The VGA Phone Stand is available for $8.90.

Boeing’s Black is a Self-Destructing Smartphone

Boeing Black Phone

 

 

 

Boeing has a top-secret phone in the works, and unfortunately it’s going to stay top-secret until its completion because it’s only going to be sold to government agencies. Dubbed as “Black,” it’s a smartphone that has a self-destruct feature when it’s tampered with, so the secrets and data it holds will remain a secret forever.

Boeing’s Bruce Olcott explains that the phone “will be sold primarily to government agencies and companies engaged in contractual activities with those agencies that are related to defense and homeland security. The device will be marketed and sold in a manner such that low-level technical and operational information about the product will not be provided to the general public.”

The phone will reportedly come with dual SIM card slots, a removable battery, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities. The phone will be able to operate on the GSM, WCDMA and LTE networks.

Clip It, Protect It: ReelKlip Smartphone Protection System

Reel Klip

People drop their phones all the time. Whether it breaks or not depends on the protective case (or lack thereof) and the build of the phone itself. It also depends on whether or not the user is using a smartphone protection system, like ReelKlip. Most people don’t bother because they can be bulky and a pain to use, but ReelKlip is neither of the two.

It’s a discrete system that basically tethers your phone to where the clip is attached, so it won’t ever reach the ground if you drop it or fall out of your pocket inadvertently when you’re on the go.

Everpurse is a Phone-Charging Purse

Everpurse

The holidays is a time of joy, laughter, and cheer. It also happens to be one of the most busiest times of the year. Lately, I find myself chasing after time, and juggling work, homework, blogging, and everything else is starting to make me more absentminded than usual. I’ve become so absentminded that I left the house three times last week with zero battery because I forgot to plug my phone into the charger.

Whether you forgot to charge your mobile or need to rush out mid-charge, the Everpurse will definitely come in handy for you. It looks snazzy on the outside, but it also happens to be a portable phone charger on the inside. The purse’s special charging pocket has a dock connector at the bottom which hooks it up with your device, so you won’t have to fish for cords while you’re on the go.
