With the summer break upon us, it’s time for a well-deserved break! We’ve put together some of our summer tech essentials that are perfect for enhancing road trips, beach days, lazing by the beach or weekend excursions if you’re still working.
A portable Bluetooth speaker is a perfect companion for summer – with most options being water and dustproof, there’s no need to stress about using these devices outside. We’d recommend the JBL Clip 4 for maximum portability, this small but powerful speaker features rich JBL Pro Sound, IP67 water and dustproof and an integrated carabiner makes it easy to take your music with you wherever you go.
Travelling with the kids? Avoid the endless “are we there yet” and keep them entertained with a set of headphones. The JBL JR310 Wireless Headphones deliver legendary sound without exceeding 85 decibels making them safe for kids to use. Plus, with up to 30-hours battery and quick charge you don’t have to worry about running out of battery.
If you’re using your phone for GPS and music, it always helps to have a car charger for an extra boost. Magnetic charging options are the latest innovation in charging and offer a secure and fast charging option for MagSafe smartphones.
This Cygnett Wireless Charger is fast and efficient, with a mount that clips onto your vent – if your phone is only wireless-enabled, attach a MagSafe attachment ring to unlock magnetic charging. Belkin also has a great option with a vent clip for easy and secure attachment, as well as MagSafe case compatibility.
Hitting the road this summer? A dash cam is a perfect addition to your road trip to add an extra layer of security and record any incidents on the road.
Away from a power source and don’t want your summer adventures to be cut short? Then a powerbank is essential. Both Belkin and Cygnett have a range of options available with a variety of colours available, wireless and magnetic attach options, as well as standard cable options.
