Splash – water resistant spray for phones

Have you ever had a phone ruined by water? My son was on a school trip and had his phone in his pocket on a rainy day. When he came back it refused to work, the rain had damaged it. Luckily it was not an expensive phone but we still had to go to the expense of replacing it. These days phones can do so much and are often expensive. On rainy days I worry about using my phone to take pictures in case the water damages it. It can even be a problem when you visit theme parks, like the splash zone in Flamingoland. Luckily help is at hand with Splash, water resistant spray from Reviveaphone. You spray it on your phone and it creates a water resistant barrier around your phone which helps protect the insides from damage. It does not make your phone waterproof so you won’t be able to use it while swimming, but it will protect it from accidental spills and rainy days. What do you get in the box? The box is quite small and contains a bottle of Splash water resistant spray, a microfibre cloth, a small plastic card to help you apply … Continue reading →

I am always happy to try out new technology and was actually interested to find out how well these devices perform. Both devices sounded useful to me. The Beets Blu Heart Rate Monitor would be another way to monitor my activity during my running sessions and the Pager Tag sounded like a great way to help to locate my garage key. My son has a habit of taking his bike out and throwing the key down randomly and then we can never find it. Anything that would help me locate the key without searching for ages would be helpful. Beets Blu Pager Tag The Beets Blu Pager tag is a small key fob that you attach to your key ring. It is paired to your phone using blue tooth. When you lose your keys you just go into the PagerTag app on your phone and select the option to make the tag make a beeping sound. You can then track down your keys by listening for the beeping sound. I was concerned that … Continue reading →
