[REVIEW] Portable Chargers From Omaker

The more we rely on our mobile devices, the more we use the battery power. I have yet to find a phone that will last a full day whilst being used to call, text and browse the internet.  Sometimes it's not always possible to plug your phone or mobile device into a wall or computer to give it a bit of a boost charge which is why I am such a fan of portable chargers.

Omaker Power Bank

Omaker Power Bank
The Omaker portable power bank has three ports, one on/off button and four lights to show you how much charge is left in the power bank.  There are two USB ports so you can charge two items of tech at one time and there is a micro-USB port so that you can recharge the power bank.

The power bank has a weighty feel to it but it's not too heavy to carry around. It also comes with a drawstring carry case which houses the powerbank and the necessary leads.

To charge an item of tech (phone, tablet, etc) you simply plug in your device, press the power button and you're away. When fully charged, the power bank has enough charge to give a phone about five or six boost charges and it took about 45 minutes to give my phone a full boost.

This power bank is a great addition to your work bag or to take with you on a short trip away (camping, a festival, overnight trip).  Find out more on Amazon*

Omaker Car Charger 

Omaker Car Charger
This is the first car charger I have reviewed and considering the cigarette lighter in my car is now redundant, this is a fantastic replacement idea. When plugged in, the car charger can recharge up to three mobile devices (phone, tablet, etc) at normal recharging speed.

The charger has an 'intelligent internal circuit' which prevents over-heating and over-charging plus charging will auto-stop when the device battery is full. I would recommend using this recharging device when the car engine is running although I shouldn't drain your car battery too much if used when the car is not running.  

This charger is great if you are travelling long distance or if you are on a family outing and multiple devices need charging up for additional use.  Find out more on Amazon

4 ways high speed internet can transform your business

4 ways high speed internet can transform your business
With the advent of broadband some years ago, many of us believe that the problem of internet speed had been solved once and for all. It's since become clear that this is not the case. As internet speeds across the world increased, the internet itself started to develop and head in new directions. Soon enough, web pages had transformed from basic, text based pages to multimedia sites which maximised users' bandwidths.

Internet speeds and the mass of data online have continued to develop with one another. Today, though, there is a service which allows users a peek into the future – gigabit internet connections. Here, we take a look at how this colossal service can benefit businesses up and down the country.

1. Uninterrupted conferences

The benefits of conducting business conversations online where possible are well understood, but many companies are equally aware of its pitfalls. To have an important conference call ruined by a poor connection is more than an embarrassment – it can sometimes develop into a very costly loss. Gigabit internet provides ample bandwidth for such conference calls to take place smoothly, regardless of what else the connection is being used for at that time.

2. Using the highest possible quality

Whether you're creating a promotional video or passing other media around the office, it's nice to have no limits. Those with slower internet connections can often be forced into compromising on the size of the files they share, which has a knock on effect on the overall quality. Gigabit services allow you to move huge files at great speed with no limitations.

3. Keeping up with competitors

A large part of succeeding as a business is about keeping up with competitors and your marketplace. Not only does this truth extend to marketing and sales, but to a company's infrastructure and internet speeds also. This piece in the FT highlights the importance of a strong connection to cutting edge businesses.

4. Dealing with multimedia

As marketing becomes increasingly reliant upon the digital sector, as per this Guardian piece, businesses of all kinds need to be able to handle large amounts of media. Handling this media – all of which should be of the highest quality – can bring serious demands on the bandwidth of an office. In order for smaller firms to punch above their weight, they need a connection which won't limit them in this respect.

With these four ways in which high speed internet can really transform our businesses, it’s no wonder why so many of us have opted for the speedier approach.
