- Phones and gadgets run out of battery rather quickly and will always fail you when you need them.
- If a solar charger is your choice of portable charger, then you know they can be trouble when direct sunlight is blocked and they’re not compatible with all devices, especially iDevices.
Lucky for you, there’s a new SMART solar charger in town. StrongVolt solves both of these problems:
- It is fully compatible with iDevices, Android devices and tablets as well as other USB devices.
- While other solar chargers require your to unplug and plug your device again if passed by a shade, StrongVolt’s SunTrack technology auto-connects your device as soon as it’s under sunlight again.
The charger’s LED red and green light indicators let you know right away if the charger is powered enough to run or if you need more sunlight, so no more guess-work!
StrongVolt is available in many power options starting at 3W which is perfect for small handheld devices and up to 18W for anyone who’s looking for maximum power. You can pre-order your StrongVolt smart charger on Kickstarter.com starting at only $25.

If you own the newer generations of iPhones or iPods then you’ve tried Apple’s earpods, the supposedly “revolutionary” earphones that should fit almost all different shapes of ears. While the Earpods do produce a good sound, they lack when it comes to the perfect fit part. That’s where an accessory like Sprng clip comes in quite handy! It’s a small plastic attachment that does what the Earpods failed to do, they make them fit perfectly.
So, how does it fit? The Sprng clip has a soft tipped end that keeps the Earpods in place without adding any pressure. You get the custom fit by simply sliding the clip up or down the stem of the Earpod until you’ve got that comfortable fit. It’s a rather simple yet brilliant solution!
Sprng clips are available in four colors: grey, blue, pink and lime. And that perfect Earpod fit will cost you only $10.
Last month, we’ve held a giveaway for Truffol leather skins iPhone / Samsung Galaxy S4 and 15 lucky winners received their choice of model and color! The nice guys at Truffol were also kind enough to send me a couple of skins to try out for this review.
What Is the Truffol Autograph Leather Skin?
It’s a genuine leather skin with an adhesive back that you can easily apply on the back of your phone. It’s simple yet very beautiful, it instantly classes up your phone. The skin is precisely cut to fit your phone perfectly, and it’s only 0.6mm in thickness, so it doesn’t add any weight or thickness to your phone.
What you get in the packages is:
- The leather skin.
- a complimentary screen protector, microfiber cloth and dust removal tool.
How To Apply the Skin:
It’s a pretty straight forward task. Simply peel the plastic off the adhesive back and gently apply the skin on your phone. The adhesive is good for a number of uses, not quite sure how many, but I did take it off and on again at least 5 to 6 times and it’s still holding on very well. I would advice that you keep the protective plastic in case you ever want to take the skin off and use it again at a later time. I was pleased to find out that my iPhone 5S fit nicely into the case I had even with the skin on (I use a Spigen Slim Armor Case) so you might not even need to take the skin off.
Quality and Feel of the Autograph Leather Skin:
The quality is certainly of high standard. The nice smell of leather will hit you as soon as you open that package. It also has a grained texture to it that feels nice in hand. The bottom of the skin holds the logo of Truffol either in stainless steel or rose gold, depending on the color of the leather.
Truffol offers a free personalization service for the Autograph leather skin. You can have up to three letters embossed on it to make it more your own.
It’s important to note that the Truffol Autograph leather skin is not meant to be protective. Of course, it will protect the back of your phone from scratches, but this isn’t something you buy for overall protection against drops for example. That said, your phone will definitely look much better than having a case on it. I’ve already gotten so many positive comments on mine.
As I already have a screen protector on my phone, I did not apply the complimentary protector I received with the skin, so I won’t be commenting on that.
The Autograph Leather Skin is available in four colors, and in two variants: Standard or Card, which has a pocket good for holding a credit card or a driver’s license. You can get it for your iPhone 5/5S or Samsung Galaxy S4 for only $18 or $22 for the Card version.
