5 Essential Gadgets You Need in Your Life Right Now
By In Her Shoes Contributor: Ashley Small
Some girls are all about the shoes, bags and baubles. I get it and trust me…I’ll always take the bag. Always. However, there are few joys that compare to getting a new collection of sleek, stylish gadgets, getting lost in a good consumer electronic store or upgrading to the latest version…of anything. To me…
It should come as no surprise that my desk is constantly buried under a pile of pretty, sparkly new gadgets. Here are just a few of my favorites:
The recharge struggle is real. Especially if you’re a loyal iPhone user. My battery hardly survives the time it takes to get dressed, eat breakfast and commute to the office. That’s why I love the FUEL iON Case and Charge Base Kit. No cords, no plugs, just seamless magnetic charging on the go. It uses magnet technology to secure your phone by simply making contact with the charge base.
I mentioned the need to be efficient on the go in my last post, and the Kinivo Hands-free Car Kit is the essential car speaker for CEOs on the move. Kinivo offers some of the best audio products in the industry, and they’ve mastered the art of creating portable, attractive products that don’t compromise in quality. The Hands-Free car kit allows you to answer and receive calls with any Bluetooth smartphone – iPhone, Android, Blackberry etc. It includes a built in microphone and lets you stream music too!
For the jet-setting CEO, the Satechi Smart Travel Router and Adapter is a must! It fits into four of the most common plug configurations used around the world and what I love th most is the router capability which allows you to establish a strong connection to wi-fi around the globe. It also includes a compact adapter for charging while on the go.
Did I mention that I’m into bags? Of course if you’re into gadgets, you need a safe place to store them! If you’re looking for something chic, simple and highly functional, look no further. The Cobra Slim Brief Case by Booq can haul a 15-inch Mac or up to 15.6″ PC, in addition to housing your other small gadgets and cords in a safe, organized fashion.
This is totally my favorite social gadget. ‘Usies’ are the new selfies, and few things prompt people to let go of their inhibitions like the opportunity to capture the perfect ‘usie.’ The Xstorie Me Shot Selfie Stick extends from 9.1 to 36.6″, to help you capture high-angle shots and memorable events. Whether it’s a celebration for a client milestone or a weekend outing with the girls, ‘usies’, selfies, none of it will ever be same.
