Five smartphone accessories to use on the move

FEATURE

Smartphones have made life infinitely easier for those that live a busy, bustling lifestyle. They are able to perform an enormous variety of tasks, from any place we might find ourselves: in the city, at the supermarket, on the bus, at the gym; you’re never far from help with your smartphone at your side.

Your smartphone is a trusty sidekick for all things work and play. You can use it to play games, either by yourself, or with your friends who could be on the other side of the country! You can catch up on work and study, check through your emails and pay bills even while you’re on the go.

It keeps you in contact with others; friends and family are just a text, call, instant message or Snapchat away.

If your smartphone is your saviour while constantly on the move, you’ll want to make sure you’re getting the most out of it. Accessories are a great way to get more from your mobile, that’s why we’ve stocked up with heaps of them on the iiOnlineStore.

Here are our 5 picks for the best smartphone accessories for the dynamic go-getters who always find themselves away from home.

Mounting cradle

Using your phone in the car can be dangerous, not to mention illegal in Australia. But there is still a way to take advantage of your handset’s great features without putting yourself or others at risk.

If you get yourself a cradle, such as the LifeProof LifeActive Suction Mount with Quickmount, you can simply pop your smartphone in for a quick and easy hands-free solution. Those that spend a lot of time on the road might even want to get their hands on an In-Car Essentials Pack to cover all their bases.

Portable charger

No one likes to be at the mercy of a power outlet when their battery runs low. This is especially true when you’re in uncharted territory, running to an important meeting, heading out of town or having a night out with your mates.

With a portable charger you can say goodbye to hunting desperately for a plug and boost your smartphone’s battery whenever and wherever you like. Check out the Innergie PocketCell Plus portable charging pack. It’s tiny enough to fit in pockets or small bags but still provides a powerful punch to juice up your device.

Cases

Protecting your investment is never a bad thing. In this case, your investment is your smartphone. When you need to use your handset in different environments the increased handling can lead to higher chances of damage. Picking up a protective case and cover for your smartphone will extend its life and save you from stressing about your phone’s safety in unfamiliar surroundings.

Wireless speakers

Although smartphone producers are doing their best to push the volume to 11 with each new wave of devices, most of the time handsets just don’t have the power to crank out ample volume. If the party don’t start till you walk in and people depend on you to get the tunes flowing, then make sure you secure yourself a sweet set of wireless speakers. Now you can get the party started quicker than ever before.

Headphones

If you want to take the party with you, then you can plug in to your playlist with a pair of handy headphones. Drown out the daily doldrums of your morning jog or commute with your own private concert, where every song played is one of your favourites!

    No need for a dedicated smartphone car cradle, the cheap ones available for 6-7″GPS do the job. Lots of ear buds available, but they fall out if moving even walking let alone jogging, there are a few with over the ear holders.My Favouritis is a small clip on Lens kit for the camera-I have a 10 times close up and a fish eye lens.

    Checked out the Apps that you have listed and not one of them are for a Windows phone,
    is this because you don’t like these phones or just to lazy to find them?

  5. Thanks for all that information – I am 83 years old and got left behind with the current boost of all the amazing electronic items available. I do have an iPhone but I am still trying to figure it out!! I certainly do not use it. My original mobile was strictly for emergencies but it was a simple ‘phone and easy to use. i do not think that I will make too much effort to join the current “kids”.

    I love the earplugs for my iPhone, every morning when I do my 6 km walk I listen to an audio book I have downloaded from the local library or podcasts. I also love the Bluetooth speaker, I use it with my iPhone or iPad to share what I am listening to with friends.
