Back to school, on the smart side

1 Sep

Vacations are over, we had fun on the beach, BBQ everyday, made new friends, discovered new places… Basically we enjoyed our time off before the rat race starts again.
As we didn’t win the Powerball, we have to go back to the office and we better be ready.
Here’s what I always have with me to face the worst.

. Extra battery for my iPhone, iPad and computer, the Sherpa 50 by GoalZero (powered by a solar panel!!)
. Jump Cable by Native Union, giving you a 30% boost and serving a a charging cable too
. Klean Kanteen bottle, to cut on using plastic
. Nunn tabs to stay hydrated during the work day
. Luminox watch, the brand of the Navy Seals (I switched to the textile bracelet to have it a bit funkier)
. A Bluetooth earpiece, the New Era by Jawbone (4 hours autonomy, super light)
. Tile, a bluetooth tag that helps me not to forget my stuff behind (in this case my wallet)
. Shine by Misfit to track my daily and night activity
. And my beloved Biscuit skate by Hamboards to land-surf to the office and back home (still practicing).
Have fun, work well and the next vacations are around the corner!

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.

Pop ! for your phone

17 Nov

Native Union is a small company based in Hong Kong. They have 8 products in their catalogue, all accessories for mobile phones.

I have a crush on the pop handset that you connect through the jack plug of your phone. It has the great advantage to keep the bad waves away from your head and brain. It also gives you a vintage-look while skyping with your co-workers.

It’s super easy to use. Plug it in the headphone jack and here it is, ready to talk! It will also be able to play game with your other hand while talking … The touch of the pop is smooth, and the sound quality is perfect!
The price is decent, about  $38USD.
7 colors are proposed: violet, pink, red, blue, green, black and yellow.

ChaseIt, because it’s a great xmas gift for you or your loved-ones !
