This Smart Auto Cutoff Cable Wants To Safeguard Your Smartphone’s Battery

You know how is it. You have activities, early start of the next day and you would do what every sane person would do: hit the sack early and leave your smartphone charging overnight, so you’d get a fully charged device first thing in the morning.

Apparently, leaving your device plugged in at 80 percent or higher for too long a time will hurt the battery’s longevity in long run. Most would just ignore this fact and runs the risk of shortening the battery life, but really, you don’t have to because there is this thing called Charby Sense.

Placeon: Having A Phone On Your Belt Never Looked This Cool And Stylish!

You don’t always need new inventions to improve life. Sometimes you just need to improved on existing inventions. The Placeon Cellphone Belt Clip is one good example. I know. The mention of ‘belt clip’ conjures up image of chunky, ugly phone holder you used to see you dad or grandad clipped on their belts. Trust me. Placeon is anything but. It is what a belt clip should be, period. Placeon consists of two parts: an apparel clip and a super low profile phone clip. The former is much like a money clip, but designed to clip on your belt, backpack, pocket or whatnot, and the latter, goes onto the back of your device and slides into the apparel clip’s custom designed low profile bracket.

Fujifilm instax SQUARE Printer May Just Make Printing Photos Fun Again

Thanks to the popularity of Instagram, square format images are again a thing (it should always be anyways). Personally, I don’t favor square format photos, except when they are printed and if you are on the same page as me, well, good news to us, because Fujifilm has a new printer that does square print and it has its sight set squarely on smartphone users (read: Instagrammers). Called instax SHARE SP-3 SQ Printer, it is the first square format Instax printer that will let you print whatever you fancy straight from your smartphone, in square format, naturally.

Until, businesses have been touting projector as the solution to your tiny mobile device screen. Projectors sound good and all, except that you need a proper surface to get things going.

DeX Wants To Turn Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Into A Desktop Computer

Attempts to turn Android smartphone into a computer isn’t new, but somehow, Samsung made it a big thing. Or maybe it is a big deal because, Samsung DeX, the device that will enable the Android-based desktop experience, will turn the newly announced Galaxy S8 and S8+, and provide an experience that no other makers have done. To be honest, I almost dismissed as just another attempt to do so. However, in DeX’s case, docking the S8 or S8+ will enable seamlessly access to apps, edit documents, browse the web, watch videos, reply to messages and more, and doing so with a much larger display and the convenience offered by an actual keyboard and mouse.
