I've been talking about the brand Aukey in a few posts and it's not to annoy anyone. I've been testing Aukey products and must admit that the Aukey Tech really does Delivers the Solution to your Problems
And of course I'm talking about your Charging Problems
If you're like me, I take my phone Everywhere! It's just so much easier to carry and use the camera on my Samsung Galaxy than hauling my beautiful (but heavy) Cannon. (sorry Cannon—I love you!)
Continuing with the Aukey products, I recently tested out their Wireless Charger and Loved It! Everything nowadays has to be connected to a USB cable in order to charge or connect to a power outlet—smart phones included. Well this is were Aukey joins it's competitors and outperforms them—allowing us to be Wire Free with the Aukey Wireless Charger
The dreaded "Low Battery" notification that sends us in panic modeI—yeah you know what I mean, Imyself have been there when I'm off traveling. This is why I always pack and carry an external charger.
Stay Connected with the Aukey Power Bank Charger
Today's Product Review is also a Travel Tip to always stay connected when Traveling. An external power bank can not only charge your smart phone, but also comes in handy to re-charge your Cameras, GoPro, and 360 Cameras.
Recently, I received and have been testing out the Aukey portable charger. I was already familiar with the brand, because I have and use their smart phone lenses.
2018 brought some fun destinations for me, with an amazing trip to Peru and Europe! And 2019 isn't looking too bad with new adventures already scheduled and booked.
But for today's #TravelTip Thursday, I'd like to talk about a piece of equipment that was given to me last Christmas as a gift—this is something that can benefit you and your family. If you travel local or not, it's something very useful for making homemade healthy travel snacks for on-the-go, hiking, or just relaxing at home.
No matter where one travels, a camera is always at hand. With newer smartphones equipped to take great photos—lets face it, our phones are ajoined to some place on our bodies. This is after all, the Social Media Era—right?
And because I primarily use my phone to take quick photos, I've been on the search for really good lenses to use for on-the-go, and for when I don't have my Canon camera or GoPro. So far, I've found and love these two universal smartphone lenses:
Technology has changed through decades and has finally caught up with the 21st Century. Cameras have greatly advanced and surpassed the film strip and Polaroid era— although Fijifilm is still a popular option with their Instax camera.
The virtual reality scene is impressive and growing, and with the 360° degree camera options in today's market it's literally a game changer for the world of Travel. How so? Lets look at the versatile 360Fly camera for example:
The 360Fly camera is compact and built for every day and any day use with it's all weather proof housing and design— Rain, snow, sun, dirt, sand you name it. The action camera is built compatible with WiFi and Bluetooth features for easy access from your smartphone—that's right, you can view and control the camera directly from your phone, by downloading the free mobile App (from the app store). 360° Life in the palm of your hand!
Like many, I use the camera on my phone to snap pictures everywhere I go— food, people, buildings, animals, just about anything that catches my eye.
I cherish the memories and stories that are saved through my photos, so I was curious when I heard about the 3-in-1 smart phone lenses by Lenzii. Let me just repeat that for clarity, 3-in-1 smart phone lenses.... 3-in-1
These 3-in-1 lenses are compatible with any smart phone, tablet, or laptop camera with ease, and come in a tough carrying case. I like that the case keeps the lenses safe, and a small carabiner clip is attached to hang your lenses on your bag or backpack. The lenses also come with a cap that easily snaps on and off to protect the lenses when not in use.
I know I'm not the only one that this has happened to. You know that moment, right? When you find the perfect background or the perfect moment, and you pull out your handy-dandy camera.... and then it happens...yousee the red flashing battery icon blinking rapidly to warn you— Low Battery
After testing out several portable power bank chargers, I found the one brand that holds up to it's "#Simply Connected" slogan, and it's the portable chargers from the company— LUMSING
With a variety of chargers for your every needs, these chargers are built to give you more than a one time single charge. I love the 2 USB (Lumsing Harmonica Series shown above) ports that make it easy to charge my phone and GoPro at the same time.
I'm able to stay connected without having to worry about battery life. Charging two devices at the same time with fast charge capability is an important feature for my traveling needs.
