Innovative products soon in my pocket

10 Mar

20140307-082634.jpgNiteize is a great brand for indoor daily uses and outdoor activities.
I use everyday their biners, gearties and flashlight and … I’m not a hunter.
It’s an innovative brand which keeps developing new products, so I have to keep it up and test their new products.

And talking about new products, 4 raised my interest during my lunch break: the Screenskate to wipe clean my iPhone screen, the Doohickey key tool to basically do everything I can’t do with my fingers and nails, the Inova Squeeze light to have a tiny light always with you and the Geartie mount perfect to tie and not loose my earphones.

They are ordered and I will start testing them very soon now. Stay tuned …

When you read a book, the light is important so I decided to bench 3 portable lights that you might like.

1. The supposed to be handy 2-LEDs bookmark by Moleskine, the Luna by GoalZero and the WakaWaka light.Photo 7-04-13 8 34 56 PM (HDR)
The 2-LEDs Bookmark is easy to charge through an incorporate USB
It’s also a bookmark which is a great idea.
But, and designed to be used as a bookmark too, it sounded like a great idea.
Testing it was not so fun, not a great beam, only lightning one page at a time.

 ChaseIt because
. It’s a one in two tool: a bookmark and a reading light

BChased because
. It only lights up one page at a time, can’t flip the page
. It’s not really handy, doesn’t hold straight
. The light is more blinding you than it lights up the page you read
. It’s too expensive (20euros)

2. The Luna by GoalZero, is a 10-led light powered by a computer, an handy Switch 8 or a usb plug.
The beam is way larger and it’s easy to direct the light thanks to its flexible and bendable cord to wrap it around object to secure it.
ChaseIt because it’s handy and useful and it’s a great value 9,90$

3. The WakaWaka Solar Lamp, a 2 leds-light powered by the sun.
Basically it has been designed to replace the oil lamp the people use when they don’t have electricity at home (it prevents fire, and burn injuries).
One full solar charge will give you
. 8 hours of bright ambient light
. 16 hours of bright reading light
. 80 hours of soft night safety light
It can only be charged by the sun, no sun no light. I use it home a night light.

Your iPhone goes disco !

14 Feb

Your iPhone will vibrate, ring when you get a notification (a new text, a new message on your Facebook Messenger, …), nothing fancy, all phones do that BUT it can be cool-er with the LED Flash for Alerts.

The LED in the back of your phone will blink like the lights on your xmas tree on 24th of December.
How to configure your LED Flash ?

  • Go to Settings
  • Then choose General
  • Then click on Accessibility and scroll down to LED Flash for Alerts
