This Holiday Season will be unlike any we have previously experienced, and gift-giving will be too. After all, people feel the financial pinch and, many of us are spending more time in our homes than ever. Here are some of the items that might make meaningful and practical gifts this year. You might see something for you, too!
Two Zagg brands, InvisibleShield and Gear4, have products that will not only keep your Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G protected from drops and scratches, they’ve also been given an anti-bacterial treatment that can “kill up to 99.9% of common surface bacteria.”
Another CES has come and gone, and as we have in the past, we’ve sorted through hundreds upon hundreds of products to bring you the ones we thought were the most exciting, useful, disruptive, or clever. Take a look at our Best of CES 2020 award picks, and see what you think!
Mophie was one of the first companies to offer battery cases for the iPhone and other mobile devices. In the years since, mophie has emerged as one of the premier mobile device accessory companies. Now, with wireless charging becoming ubiquitous, mophie is adding new wireless charging devices to their catalog. The mophie 3-in-1 wireless charging pad is one such accessory.
Some time ago, I reviewed the iFrogz Airtime Truly Wireless Earbuds plus Charging Case. They surprised me. The small, inexpensive earbuds were not only comfortable and offered a secure fit, but they sounded pretty darn good. (Read my review.) The $69.99 iFrogz AIRTIME PRO True Wireless Earbuds offer a more AirPod-esque design, but are they worth the extra money?
InvisibleShield describes their Glass Elite for the Google Pixel 3a, and I assume other smartphones, as, “Our strongest screen protection ever.” I don’t know if that is true, but I do know that it is the easiest screen protector install I have ever done. The $39.99 screen protector is also crystal clear and maintains the screen’s touch sensitivity.
I stopped wearing my first generation Apple Watch a few months after getting it. My 4th generation Apple Watch with cellular connectivity is a different story. I wear it every day, and it’s beginning to show. When I noticed a few small scratches on the screen, I knew it was time for Invisible Shield’s glass+ 360 for Apple Watch Series 4.
After making a huge investment on a tablet such as the iPad Pro, chances are you need a protective case for it. Initially, when the tablet was released, there were many cases that simply put did not protect it or the new magnetic Apple Pencil. Luckily Zagg has not one, but three options you might be interested in.
You’d truly be surprised the amount of time we spend looking at our devices. The longer we do, the effects of overexposure to the blue light can become a problem, and luckily today, InvisibleShield’s here’s to help us out.
ZAGG began as a company providing screen protectors for various devices. In recent years they have expanded their product line rather remarkably. Among their products is a line of keyboards that help make your phones and tablets even better productivity devices. The ZAGG Flex keyboard is a new keyboard from ZAGG. It is small, portable and gets the job done.
The average American spends roughly 11 hours staring at a screen, with about 62% of that being that smartphone in your hand. So InvisibleShield has been working on a solution to “blue light exposure”.
I’ve always been a fan of Invisible Shield’s screen protectors. They’ve come a long way since I reviewed my first product from them. The new Glass+ 360 takes things to even greater heights. The system, and it is a system, delivers complete front, back, and side protection without adding weight or bulk to your iPhone 8, 8 Plus of X.
Wireless earbuds have finally come into their own. You can now buy high-end earphones with great sound, excellent battery life, and ANC. You can also find inexpensive earbuds that sound quite good! (IFROGZ has some great offerings!) To keep them charged, IFROGZ has released the Cocoon Earbud Recharging Case. At under $30 it’s an interesting idea for a wireless world.
ZAGG keyboards and cases are among the best on the market. Newer one’s to rely on past successes, they have just announced a new Rugged Book Wireless Keyboard and Detachable Case for the Apple iPad, 9.7” iPad Pro, iPad Air and iPad Air 2.
ZAGG’s Invisible Shield is a market leader when it comes to device protection. Today they announced their new InvisibleShield Glass+ Luxe 360 for the Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. The new offerings promise to provide total protection to Apple’s iPhone 8, iPhone 8+ and iPhone X. Their years of experience have led to these offerings.
Apple’s latest commercial for the iPad Pro highlights the fact that the tablet is powerful enough, and apps sophisticated enough, that it can replace a laptop. I’m not convinced I can go without a laptop, but the ZAGG Slim Book for the Apple 10.5-inch iPad Pro certainly moves the productivity of the iPad Pro in that direction.
In fall of 2014, I published a review of the ZAGG Rugged Folio Keyboard Case for the iPad Air. It was serious protection for a serious tablet. Now that Apple offers an affordable 9.7” iPad more people will likely be taking iPads more places. Thankfully, ZAGG has released the Rugged Messenger for the latest 9.7″ iPad in Apple’s lineup.
With the launch of the InvisibleShield Screen Guarantee Plan ZAGG just gave mobile device users a shot of confidence they never imagined. In a first-of-its-kind offering, ZAGG will now offer consumers a reimbursement of up to $100 toward the repair of their mobile screen IF their InvisibleShield fails to protect it from a crack or shatter. They promise no hassle, no questions asked and no deductible. Can it be? Apparently yes… it can.
Since getting my 9.7” iPad Pro my MacBook feels neglected. The iPad Pro is so powerful, and iOS apps have matured so completely, that there are few things I CAN’T do on my iPad. It’s for that reason my MacBook HATES the new ZAGG Slim Book Pro Wireless Keyboard and Detachable Case with Stand for iPad Pro 9.7”.
If you are a consumer with plans to purchase one of the new smart devices coming onto the market with no headphone jack, iFrogz has you covered. They recently released a new lineup of Bluetooth earbuds so you will never miss a beat from your new phone. We tested the iFrogz Plugz and iFrogz Impulse wireless earbuds.
In anticipation of Apple announcing the new crop of 2016 iPhones in just a few days, ZAGG, one of our favorite smartphone accessory companies, has announced two new products. The sub-$40 Glass+ and the $49.99 Sapphire Defense screen protectors offer great screen protection at an affordable price.
