Do 2 things simultaneously!

Pocket size extra batt & cable

Pocket size extra batt & cable

Remember when your teacher told you to focus and do only one thing at a time?
The guys from Native Union didn’t listen and developed a really smart gadget called the JUMP cable.
The JUMP cable is a 2 in 1 device:
1. It’s a USB charging cable for your iPhone
2. It’s an extra battery for your iPhone that will charge itself while using the cable to charge your phone. When off the plug, it will give you an extra 30% boost.

The 3 little lights on the USB face will blink while charging. When the 3 lights are steady, the extra boost will be ready to deliver the 30% extra boost (one light means 33% batt charged, 2 lights 66%). Full charging time for the extra batt is about 1,5 hours.

The best of it is that it’s very compact (5x5cm) and lightweight (40gr) enough to fit in your coin pocket!

When done charging, just put the cords and plugs back in their spot and tuck it in your pocket.

But I f you do the math, one iPhone cable $19 + one extra battery (small boost) $29,99 it’s an OK price. Worth trying!

PS: I would have like the possibility to hook it as a keyring, but that’s ok.
And a little notch to pull the plugs easily.

Blink my cable ?

6 Apr

I discover the Visible Green USB-Dock Connector cables online.
Photo 6-03-13 8 43 59 PM (HDR)The concept is pretty cool.
The cable uses electroluminescence to show the electrical current flowing through the cable to your iPhone/iPad.
Basically the light goes faster, slower or turns off depending on the charging level of your battery level.
The great thing is that it turns automatically the charging off when the iPhone/iPad is fully charged, sparing your portable battery or cutting down your electricity consumption … Pretty clever !

ChaseIt or BChased ?
ChaseIt because
. It’s a cool accessory, the blinking had a 100% wow effect on my colleagues.
. It will look cool next to you bed if you don’t have a night light.
. The price is 19,90$ (19$ for the regular Apple cable).

BChased because
. The cable is thicker and less flexible than the original cable provided by Apple (the led are integrated in the middle of the cable).
. The 30-pins is way thicker than the original one and won’t stick in your iPad or iPhone depending on the case you use to protect your device.
. The 30-pins to micro-USB doesn’t fit properly on the cable.
