Keeping it wireless
This week’s roundup includes several devices—headphones, speakers, and adapters—best used with Bluetooth. Read on!
The $30 Smart Bean is a Bluetooth adapter—enabling wireless functionality on wired headphones, speakers, and more. It has a range of up to 30 feet and offers up to eight hours of music playback on a single charge.
The $17 iClever BoostCube is a wall charger with a foldable plug; it provides 24W output, making for a quicker and more efficient recharge of your iOS device than similar 18W plugs.
The $129 Luna is billed as the “perfect integration of sound, light, and appearance,” made with an aircraft-grade aluminum skeleton which houses a 2-inch full range NdFeB speaker—you’ll get some deep bass from this—and featuring the “Luna eye,” a light that changes colors and patterns according to your preferences and the music.
Miniot offers iPad covers for $65 in a variety of wood choices: walnut, cherry, mahogany, oak, and more.
The $89 Abby is “an elegant iPhone case and stylish purse” all in one package. The leather carrier comes in four different colors.
Satech’s $70 Aluminum Wireless Headphones can stream audio for a range of up to 33 feet—and can do so for 18 hours on a single charge. A built-in microphone allows hands-free calls, and the device comes with an auxiliary cord for when Bluetooth is unavailable, such as during airplane flights.
The second-generation Tile ($25 each) is a tiny Bluetooth tracker that uses your iPhone to track keys, and other easy-to-lose items. It’s kind of like the “Find My iPhone” app, only for other items: Attach a Tile to an item, then locate it by sound, see it on a map, or mark it “lost” and get an alert when it’s found.
The $90 Super Multi-Port USB Adapter has 35 USB ports. 35!
