In today’s world, tech gadgets are a must-have. Therefore, I am suggesting a couple of tech gadget goodies that are not just great gift ideas for the upcoming holiday season. Truthfully, each of these products is something you probably need. Even if you didn’t realize it!
Clever Cube Charges Quickly:
Tech gadget goodies need power. We love RapidX chargers and just reviewed some really unique ones recently. But one that we saved for this particular story is the PortoUNO 30W USB-C Wall Adapter with Foldable Prongs ($25). firstname.lastname@example.org What we love so much about this clever little cube is that you can fast charge with this USB-C plug up to 30W. Therefore you can charge most iPhones and Android phones by up to 50% in half an hour.
The Blue LED indicator lights let you know when your device is fast charging. But the best thing is that the side port design of PortoUno lets you put this in places a standard plug just won’t fit. When you are traveling, the PortoUno foldable prongs let you carry it along, easily. Our sample was black, but it also comes in red, pink, yellow, mint green, blue, and white. This is a great little gift for your co-workers, road warriors, students, and of course, you as well. For more information visit the RapidX website
Tech Gadget: Type Away All Day Without Finger Fatigue:
ObVus (ob-Vee-uhs) sent me something that I think every phone-weary person will want to have. It’s the Minder® keyboard. (SRP. $40). The perfect companion to the award-winning minder® Laptop
Tower Stand, the all-in-one, full-sized wireless keyboard with an integrated touchpad features a sleek, lightweight design. Folding up to just about the size of a smartphone (and just as thin), the minder keyboard is ideal for those on the go and for those who want one keyboard for their multiple devices.
The wireless ergonomic keyboard is Bluetooth-enabled with technology that gives you up to 40 hours of work-time battery life. Compatible with win10, iOS, and OS, you can connect up to 3 Bluetooth-enabled devices: and switch between laptops, smartphones, and tablets with a single keystroke. All you have to do is turn it on and connect it. That was so easy!
There have been other folding keyboards in the past. But this one is just so lightweight and easy, I can hardly believe it. The pairing was super easy, it just took seconds. You don’t have to deal with additional apps either. Turn it on and just start typing. It’s the portable keyboard I’ve been longing for. Like many people, I use my phone as a portable “laptop” to text and write all day long. For anyone who does social media, or who wants to work away from the office but doesn’t want to lug a laptop, pairing this with a phone is awesome.
The best thing? It folds down to about the size of an e-reader, but it’s a full size fully functional keyboard. Thank you ObVus for making my tired fingers, feisty again!
A Foldable Stand for your Laptop and Phone:
For a really super gift add the accompanying ObVus Minder Tower Stand II ($70) It’s sturdy metal but it folds down to fit into a tote or backpack. This stand is compatible with laptops up to 17″ and holds up to 22 pounds. You can also use it with tablets, books, or whatever else you want at eye level. There’s a smaller second stand in the base for your phone.
What I like about the Minder Tower Stand II is that you don’t have to stay tethered to a desk. Unfold this and you can work basically anywhere. It adjusts to your eye height with a telescopic riser. And also is designed so that there is airflow around your laptop so it won’t overheat. Using this stand means you won’t have to hunch over to see what you’re doing, which is good for your posture and your back, shoulders, and neck. I’m not surprised that Wired Magazine named it the “Best Laptop Stand.”
If there is a downside, it’s a bit heavy, but still is portable. This is a gift the entire family can use, but will be especially welcome as a gift for anyone who works with a laptop or out of their home. For details on the folding keyboard and the stand, visit www.obVus.me
