ZAGG – New Must Haves For Mobile Me (and You)Mar 13th, 2012 | By Clout and About | Category: Cool Factors, OMGizmos
My first encounter with ZAGG was about a year ago when I ordered shield protectors for my iPad and iPhone. I still have them on and they’ve protected both devices from what would have been breakage or scratches either from my dropping them, or something scratching it while in my purse.
At MacWorld, I had the opportunity to visit the ZAGG booth and check out more of their product offerings. I spent a good amount of time discovering what they had ~their quality made and useful products were impressive. ZAGG is one company really tuned in to their clientele. That was pretty much what I concluded after speaking in depth with their rep at the show and getting up close and ‘in touch’ with the innovative gadgets and gizmos in their awesome product line.
There were a few that I really wanted to test, though ~ and we’ve put these through some rigorous workouts for a week. These are my favorites, so far.
In one week, I’ve been saved by my ZAGG Sparq twice, once for my iPhone and another time for an iPad that ran out of juice. I have a collection of chargers but none comes close to this in terms of portability and power. I’m not hooked up to a wall and I have the option of a regular charge or an optimized one if I need a quick charge. A fully charged ZAGG Sparq charged my phone and iPad with extra juice to spare. It works with any USB charged device including handheld gaming systems, digital cameras, cell phones and iPads. It’s a keeper and I don’t leave home without it. I highly recommend this for frequent travelers. Trust me, you’ll thank yourself many many times.
Now I must tell you about ZAGG SmartBuds, but let me back up a little bit. There were other wonderful suppliers at MacWorld with quality ear buds. I had a few favorites and some of them had their special unique great things about them. But this one ~ the ZAGG SmartBuds ~ this packs a punch as far as “they thought of everything” is concerned. Immediately upon unpacking it from the box, you could tell it was sturdy. The cord is made from Invisible Shield material. The sound was rich ~ I felt like I had a whole surround sound system in my ears.
The SmartBuds features include:
- Noise canceling mic
- Answer and hang up calls
- ZAGG smartbuds music control for iPhone
- Premium lenght, tangle-free cord
- In-line volume control
- Multiple sliders for better cord management
- Rich, responsive sound from superior spearkers
- Multiple ear bud adaptors for all ears (Did you know that some ears need different adaptors? Mine did!!)
- Compatible with all 3.5mm jacks
ZAGG Dual USB Car Charger
The ZAGG Dual USB Car Charger solves a problem we have when we go on long drives. Now I don’t have to share one cigarette lighter time in the car when both phones need charging at the same time. Or when I have to charge my phone and my iPad, or my phone and my camera. The solution is right there in this handy dual charger that I’m trying to hold on to (I’ve been bribed with sweets in exchange for this lovely thing!).
There was a plethora of gadgets, protectors, gizmos and accessories that the booth was a mini Disneyland and packed with people wanting to dress up their devices. If there was one word to sum up all the products from this company, it would be ‘QUALITY’. They feel good, they work well and are built to last a long time. All excellent qualities you want in any item you invest in, right?
ZAGG: Zealous About Great Gadgets. They’re true to their name. I give them five hearts (out of five).
