Tired of those short and useless cables and cords in boring black and basic white? Liven up your daily charging by choosing one of these fun, functional and useful tech accessories, as we demonstrated on Global Morning News TV!
Cords from Native Union
I find the cables that come with phones too short. You can get extra long cables from Native Union. I love the 10-foot Native Union Night Cable. With a weighted ball, it stays put on your desk or bedside table.
The chic Belt Cable wraps up nicely with a leather cord wrap so it won’t get tangled in your bag.
Cables & Accessories from Tech Candy
Tech Candy makes chic and colorful cords and cables that are also super versatile. The Triple Header Mini fits in any pocket while the Triple Header Maxi lets you take the long road—each has three ends; Micro USB, USB-C and Apple Lightning, you’ll always have the right cord for whatever you need to charge.
Need to keep cords and cables tidy in your bag? The Cord Order Kit contains a cute zippered pouch, cord wrap and protective end covers to they don’t break, bend or fray.
Having a case wardrobe is fin. You can switch up the colours to keep things interesting, or use more rugged and durable cases when you need to, swapping out for lighter and more fun options when you head out.
I just LOVE Felony Case cases. The company makes durable and funky 3D cases with texture and grip that absolutely stand out. I’ve been buying these for years and love them for their unique style. And the new fluorescents!
Are you the butterfingers type? Forever dropping your phone? Maybe you need a bit more grip. Grip2U cases have a handy strap that loops over your fingers to keep your phone where it belongs—in your hand.
Laut makes cases and covers for almost any gadget you have. I particularly love their new line of colourful cases, and their protective sleeves for AirPods and the new AirPods Pro.
I just love Google’s chic fabric cases for their Pixel Phones. In an array of patterns and styles, these are the cold-weather hand-warmers you need.
Waterproof cases from Catalyst
Heading off on vacation or just clumsy? A waterproof case might just be your best bet. I recently got to know the options from Catalyst. They make great waterproof cases for your phone or your headphones!
Charging & power
Sometimes, an extra cable is only good if you’ve got somewhere to plug it in. If you’re on the move, a power bank might be your best option. I found two options from Renogy; the Phoenix 100 Power Bank and the Renogy E.Lumen Solar powered multi function Flashlight. If you want to save money on them, I’ve got 10% off your purchase for you if you use the coupon code TechGadgetsCanada on Renogy’s website.
Renogy Power Pank & Solar flashlight: E.Lumen
With a solar panel stored in a portable and sleek casing, the E.Lumen flashlight can recharge after every use and hold up to seven hours of power. Not only can you harness the power of the sun, but you can also use the USB port for easy charging on your favorite portable items. Renogy has you prepared for any situation with the attached seat belt cutter, glass shattering hammer, and handy compass.
Phoenix 100 Power Bank for USB & AC
The mighty Phoenix 100 has 27000mAh capacity lithium-ion batteries, meaning this Moni Power Station is a perfect fusion of portability and convenience. Housed in an ultra-compact design, there’s enough juice for essential gadgets no matter where you are. Multiple charging options meet the needs of both mobile devices and AC-powered home appliances up to 100W thanks to the built-in AC output.
I also found a really pretty Qi charging pad from MiPow. With shiny silver edging and a leather plate, this charging pad is chic enough for your desk or the front door for all your guests to be jealous of.
