Tech accessories that come in basic white or black or white are so boring. Having colourful cords, cables and tech accessories can be a wee day brightener. One of the companies that does this so very well is Tech Candy.
The company recently sent me some new toys from their lineup to test and enjoy; here’s what you can expect from just a portion of their lineup.
Hold the Phone! Vent magnet by Tech Candy
If you need a solution to keep your phone from moving when you’re on the move, the Hold the Phone! attaches to your car air vent so it can keep it handy (for mapping, of course) and keep it from slipping under your seat in the event of a sudden stop.
Kaleidoscope Multi-faceted Apple Watch band
Let’s face it; Apple Watch accessories can be expensive. But these reasonably priced, silky silicone bands are both a great value and great looking. The fun Kaleidoscope pattern looks interesting and provides a touch more style than a basic band. The “pin and tuck” closure is ultra easy to do up and undo yourself with one hand, and the clever way the band’s end slides underneath keeps it from flapping loose all day. Genius!
Power House Outlet +USB Port Charging station
Finding enough outlets to charge all your gadgets is a chore; or is that just a tech blogger problem: every outlet in my house is in use!
Leading the cord-clutter resistance is Tech Candy’s Power House Outlet +USB Port Charging station. It’s got 2 USB 2.0 Smart Chip ports & 2 copper 3-prong outlets and it’s powerful enough to handle those 4 devices at once. Plus, it’s not ugly like traditional power bars! When you plug your gadgets into the USB port, the Power House can even detect your specific device and it provides exactly the right amount of power you need. Another feature of this device that I love is that the 6-foot cord wraps up neatly into a hidden spool inside the device to keep it tidy when not in use.
Fringe Benefit Woven USB cable + tassel
My favourite thing about this gadget is it’s slogan: “Because friends don’t let friends carry fugly techcessories.” OK, there are some other aspects I really like too, like the fact this is probably the most stylish way to carry a spare charging cable with you. Fringe Benefit is a portable charging cable. Just clip the trendy tassel onto your purse or bag, and you’ll never be without a cord.
The design of this cable features a fabric USB cable hidden in the core of braided rope tassel. Each tassel is dip dyed by hand to achieve an ombré effect which is really unique.
Wallflower USB Power Adapter Phone+ Cord Cozy
Sometimes you’ve got access to an outlet, but nowhere convenient to set your phone while it gets juiced.
The Wallflower USB Power Adapter Phone+ Cord Cozy is a stand that holds your phone at any outlet while the cord clip keeps your cord tucked away in a nice little bundle. Plus, it’s pretty; an accessory you won’t need to hide when the guests come over.
I used each of these gadgets and found them to be fun and functional, as well as durable. If you’re looking for new techsessories, consider paying a visit to Tech Candy’s website and taking a look around.
