When it comes to the modern day gadget owner, one thing is for sure: there are plenty of accessories to go along with your various devices, supposedly making them more impervious to damage or look cooler. Modern day gadgets also have one Achilles Heel, its battery life which could prove to be less than expected. In other words, a charger is often something that we bring around, since we never quite know when we might use up the daily supply of juice and would need to charge it up during an emergency. Enblue has come up with the EVOLUS 3 Qi multi-docking station that prides itself in delivering wireless charging capability for the all new iPhone 8 and iPhone X, while not forgetting that it is also able to cater to the iPad and Apple Watch in terms of charging, too.

The EVOLUS 3 Qi will integrate a sleek, Qi certified, module with 3-coil technology, ensuring that it is able to keep the new (and expensive) iPhones charged with a maximum of 7.5 watts, 5V/1.5A, all well within the parameters that have been limited by Apple. Regardless of whether you sold your kidney for the new iPhone X or settled for the more affordable iPhone 8 (relatively speaking, of course), the iPhone when charged will be in the most natural, upright position. The reason behind this is to enable easy access when checking and viewing messages during the charging process. Of course, there will be support for a transverse position as well, in order for you to hook it up to a pair of earphones.

It does not matter the size of your iPhone or iPad, the EVOLUS 3 Qi is able to host them all, as well as the Apple Watch series 1, 2, and 3. Chances are, it will be able to work even with a protective case surrounding your device. Made out of aircraft grade aluminium, it will cost $149 and arrive in Cool Silver.

Palmzi intends to correct poor posture while using smartphones Tue, 29 Aug 2017 20:00:22 +0000 palmziThe proliferation of mobile device usage among the masses has long passed the critical mass. In fact, just about everyone has a smartphone these days, unless you happen to live in a really far off area that still relies on dumbphones to get the job done. One thing about smartphones that we all love would be its versatility in capability. It not only doubles up as a primary communications device while we are on the move, it is also a nifty portable office, is full well capable of functioning as a portable media player, and works great as a navigation device. With these features in mind, many of us tend to bend over or develop a very poor posture when using our smartphones, and Palmzi is an upcoming accessory that intends to reverse that trend.

Palmzi claims to be the first ergonomic posture correcting accessory that has been developed especially for mobile devices, but how does it back up its claim of functionality? It basically add comfort and convenience to the mobile use experience like a tripod of sorts, hence serving up a solution to prevent and treat negative effects which arise from our smartphone use. Also described to be the first ergonomic palm support for mobile devices in the world that arrives in a stable, lightweight, foldable design, the benefits of using Palmzi are numerous.

For starters, it will help to raise your mobile device to a safe, comfortable, eye-level distance — sort of like a tripod. This will in turn help to correct poor posture instantly, while it also does its bit to reduce neck pain as well as stiffness that has been associated with mobile phone usage, and this condition is also otherwise known as “text neck”. It has been built to be lightweight and portable, and yet is also durable enough to be brought around with you just about everywhere. Certainly the 21st century road warrior would do well to check out Palmzi when it is available, expected to arrive at the end of the year.

Halos GoDrive Pro ensures your iPhone will never run out of storage Mon, 21 Aug 2017 12:00:17 +0000 halos-godrive-proIn a perfect world, the smartphone is a device that will never get obsolete, will have infinite battery life and of course, storage that never runs out at all. However, reality has proven itself to be a very, very different beast, with many of us juggling with our smartphone storage and wondering just how 128GB of space gets filled up so quickly, when all those years ago with a 40MB hard drive, it more or less took forever to fill up. Halos is here to help with their GoDrive Pro, ensuring that your iPhone will never, ever experience the issue of not having enough space to stash stuff inside.

The GoDrive Pro from Halos is a microSD memory card reader and quick charger device for the iPhone and iPad, with one of the better apps out there to perform data transfer between the mobile device and another compatible device. Since the GoDrive Pro merges the functionality of a quick charger alongside that of a microSD memory card reader, it makes sure that as you offload data and content from your iPhone to a computer, your smartphone will continue to be juiced up as well. In fact, it takes a mere 20 minutes in order to bring the battery level of the iPhone all the way up to 50%, now how about that when it comes to efficiency?

Available on Kickstarter as a crowdfunding project, the Halos GoDrive Pro will help enlarge the amount of iPhone storage through the simple act of inserting a microSD memory card into the USB interface. With the GoDrive app, users are then able to transfer photos, videos, music and files directly from the iPhone to the microSD memory card, and this will in turn be able to release iPhone storage that would be better off holding other kinds of valuable content. With the GoDrive Pro, one is able to read, transfer and share data of a microSD memory card between other compatible intelligent devices, ranging from digital cameras to dash cams and drones, among others. The data transmission process will feature a read speed of up to 30 MB/s and a write speed of up to 20 MB/s.
