Dodocool is a popular seller on Amazon that is known for making iPhone and Android accessories. They sent us over two of their latest products, their 3-in-1 charge & sync cable for iOS and Android, as well as their Mini Wireless Bluetooth Speaker to check out, so let’s check them out.
When I first unboxed dodocool’s Mini Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, I actually just thought it was the accessory to the speaker, but boy was I fooled. At $12.99 the price certainly is small, but it doesn’t mean there’s a limit to what the speaker can do. Not only does the speaker fit in your hand, but could be a great keychain accessory so you’re never without music when you’re poolside and all you brought with you are your keys. At only three ounces, I was actually surprised by the overall sound as well.
It’s obviously not going to fill a room, and certain tracks that I listened to feature more bass than I would like, you will get up to four hours of playing time according to dodocool. What I like the most about the Bluetooth Speaker is the added features that come with it. Not only will it blast your music, but it comes with a selfie remote, that makes it perfect to take photos when you don’t have someone to take the photo for you. The company included a nice lanyard for wearing on your wrist (or losing because the device is truly small). The only knock that I have on the mini wireless speaker is that the company claims that there’s a wireless range of 33 feet, but I stepped about 12 feet away from the speaker before it began to get choppy. Honestly though, for $12.99 it’s a steal of a price, with an abundance of features that even if it’s not something you’ll use for yourself, it’s a great gift for someone else. I know my future mother-in-law will love it. You can pick up the Mini Wireless Bluetooth Speaker here.
Finally, there’s the 3-in-1 Charge & Sync cable from dodocool. An Apple MFi-certified product, it’s the second cable of its kind I’ve ever had the opportunity that has not only micro USB but also Type-C and Lightning options. When I’m traveling, I tend to have 5-6 different cables just in the event I forget others, but I have to say, having a 3-in-1 cable eliminates the added clutter in your gear bag. Since it feels as though we’re moving in the direction of USB Type-C, it’s great that dodocool has decided to include this option, especially when you look at Amazon there are plenty of 3-in-1 cables, but they do not have Type-C as an option.
So if you are the type that carries devices from Apple or Android, or even need a cable that can charge both, you might not have to look any further. Made of a quality build material, the cable won’t fray or short on you after three uses. It’s 3.3 feet long which about standard, although I would love to see a 6-foot and 10-foot option. Connectivity between the MacBook and a normal USB power brick depends on the source. I wouldn’t suggest getting a power brick that doesn’t have at least 60-watt output, but there are a few available on Amazon as dodocool does not supply them. However, I would grab two or three of this unique 3-in-1 cable as they are currently only $8.99 on Amazon, and you can purchase it today here.

What I Like: The Bluetooth Speakers Selfie button is actually pretty nifty; 3-in-1 cable prevents bag clutter
What Needs Improvement: Maybe a longer cable?
