These days’ phones do so much more than just make calls. I know I would be really lost if I misplaced my phone. As well as using as an address book and diary it stores all my phone numbers and contact information. It is handy to grab my phone when I want to take a quick photo of something when I am out and about and it is also useful for browsing the internet and catching up with my emails when I am on a bus. The kindle app allows me to read a book when I want and if I want to relax with a game there it is on my phone. I usually play plants vs zombies but those pesky zombies tend to end up eating my brains.
With a phone being such an essential part of our lives there is nothing worse than being out and about and finding it has run out of charge. This happened to me the other day, I usually charge my phone up at night so it is ready for the day. Just as I was leaving the house I noticed it hadn’t charged. I need my phone to keep in touch with my son so I know he is on his school bus so this was a bit of a disaster. Luckily Trendz had recently sent me a couple of their products to try which saved the day. A USB Bullet Charger which allowed me to charge my phone in the car using the 12v socket and a Micro USB Data and Charge Cable which I could plug into it and charge my phone. Both of these would make a perfect Christmas gift ideas for phone addicts who need to have their phone on all the time.
This worked really well, just plug it into the car and plug in the USB cable and you are ready to charge your phone. What I loved about it was the funky polka dot design; most of these chargers are white which is a bit boring. The polka dots are really cheerful and make it more interesting to look at. If you do not like polka dots there are two other designs to choose from, Ditsy and Vintage Bird. RRP £6.99
It is always a good idea to have a spare phone cable in your pocket or handbag just in case you need to use it. This charge cable fits perfectly into my bag and is a lovely funky pink colour making it easy to find. If you prefer a different colour it also comes in blue and white. It works perfectly with my android phone, charging it in no time. I currently use a Samsung K Zoom which I love for its camera, find out how I put it though it’s paces on a trip to Flamingo Land. RRP: £9.99
Trendz products are available in most high street and on line retailers. You can also find out more information on their website.
