The Ultra Hight Capacity - Expedition and Adventurer

The Ultra Hight Capacity – Expedition and Adventurer

Here is a project I can get behind. I have backed about 10 different Kickstarter Projects and this is another one of their amazing ideas put into actions. I am backing the Ultimate Backup Battery.  There are three different units. I backed the 11,250 mAh Battery pack. It is stated to only take 4 to 6 hours to charge and after fully charged it can charge an iPad 1.5 times and an iPhone 7 to 10 times. This unit can last between charges too. I read on their Facebook page – a 6 week test – from freezing to 120 degrees and different altitudes. The unit only lost 1/4 of its battery power. This is mainly due to the slight circuit that checks the battery usage. I used to use the Zagg Spark – but after using it for about 9 months it failed to do any charging. They were nice enough to replace it – but the replacement unit soon failed too.  3 days past their warranty period for the replacement and I was told I would need to purchase a new one.  I loved having a nice battery pack around. Long Drives, Sitting outdoors listening to music, may places there are no outlets. So I am placing an order for the Ultra – HighCapacity “The Expedition” with dual outputs. I think I am going to order the Black one. To allow me to make a few nice vinyl cut stickers to place on the unit.

Simple iPhone Speaker Enhancer – Low Tech

I could not pass up sharing this simple smartphone ( Blackberry, iPhone, Droid etc) Speakerphone Enhancer. I wish I would have thought of this – This really is a quick and dirty (only if you leave the glass dirty) Solution that really works. I can’t believe how well this works. I tried it today and the sound is increased – Now this is not hi-fi – But it works in a pinch when you need a little extra boost. Make sure to put the speaker side down – The bottom of the iPhone down. This causes an echo chamber and increases the volume of the sound. Just a little quick and easy solution. Great from when you are away from your regular speakers or dock.

But if you want a little (Well a lot better speaker system for your iphone – I would suggest checking out this page at amazon: Iphone Speaker Docks.
