BAUBAX 2.0: A travel jacket for all your needs

Pockets for all your gadgets!

Published

on

Traveling can be a pain with all the gadgets and gizmos we carry around. One company sought to solve all these problems with a travel jacket that will cater to your every need while in transit.

The BAUBAX travel jacket, with 15 different utility features (including dedicated pockets for your phone and your tablet), was born for this. Backed by almost 50,000 people with a total of US$ 9 million pledges on Kickstarter, this travel jacket has shipped out and is hailed as the “Swiss Army Knife of travel jackets.” Yep, it’s that good.

But now, BAUBAX is back with a new travel jacket and it has even more functions than the last one. Introducing, the BAUBAX 2.0:

Aside from our favorites which include a dedicated phone pocket and power bank pocket…

… there’s also a tiny pocket for your AirPods.

As if that wasn’t enough, there are built-in AirPods straps so you’ll never have to worry about losing them.


There’s even a dedicated Apple Pencil pocket! Don’t worry, there’s a pocket for your iPad, too.

Other cool features include a retractable keychain, a zipper pen, a foldable water bottle, travel blanket, and a whole lot more.

Despite all these amazingly useful functions, the best part is it actually looks good. It comes in four styles: vest, windbreaker, bomber, and sweatshirt. There’s a perfect one for each of your different travel itineraries, whether it be a camping trip, road trip, long plane ride, or just everyday wear.

Women are not left out! The four designs also come in women’s sizes which is a great thing because as we girls know, there’s a different fit that looks better on women’s bodies.

You can check out more of what the BAUBAX 2.0 can do on their Kickstarter page — there’s still a few days left to pledge!

Travelling will never be the same again — and in a good way. I’m definitely sold on this jacket. I want one of each color. ­čśŤ

Insta360 Nano S hands-on: What’s new?

An improved 360 camera!

Published

on

Last year, I first tried out the plug-and-play Insta360 Nano and I was introduced to the world of 360 videos. Boy, did I have fun with it. From 360-degree Facebook Live shows to cute tiny planet videos, there┬áwere a lot of media possibilities. And, it didn’t stop there. Later on in the year, the Insta360 ONE was released and it was a 360 camera game-changer with 4K video capabilities and┬ástandalone recording functions.

This year’s release is the Insta360 Nano S: An updated version of that first camera with the best qualities of the second.

It looks and feels like the Insta360 Nano. It’s almost identical and it still connects via Lightning port to your iPhone. But, it can do a lot more.

Unlike the Insta360 Nano, this camera can work without being plugged to a phone since it has a microSD slot.

This thing has two 20-megapixel fisheye cameras that are capable of shooting 4K 360-degree videos or 20-megapixel photos.

Basically, it can take cool shots like this:

It’s the multiple export modes, though, that makes the Nano S more fun. You can save photos and videos using the different MultiView modes to get different perspectives. I’m not just talking about 360 videos, either. This option below gives you both front and back views simultaneously.

This one gives you three different perspectives all at the same time because why not!

The tiny earth effect, a classic Insta360 favorite, is still available as one of the export modes.

Think of all the great things you can capture!

Of course, this camera comes with FreeCapture capabilities first introduced to us on the Insta360 ONE. This just means that you can edit the 360-degree video you’ve already shot and export it as a normal video. The best part? You can choose what specific POV you’d want on that 2D video as the Insta360 app allows you to pick out scenes and edit to your liking. There’s also real-time stabilization for smoother video, which is always a great thing.

The Nano S combines the best that Insta360 has to offer. If you’re interested in getting yourself a 360 camera, this might be worth looking into.

Tough luck if you aren’t an iPhone user, however. Although the company has announced that an Android version may be coming, there isn’t any concrete news on this yet. The Insta360 Nano S retails for US$ 239.

OnePlus Bullets Wireless earphones fix common wireless earphones issues

Magnetic and wonderful!

Published

on

OnePlus’ launch event in London may have been mostly about its latest flagship smartphone, but the company’s new wireless earphones are making a splash, as well.

The Bullets Wireless are out to solve the issues commonly found in most wireless earphones, in hopes that consumers will finally consider going fully cordless.

Besides the usual features one would boast about audio products — including high-quality sounds and an excellent fit — the Bullets Wireless have a cool function you’ll love: a magnetic touch for turning it on and off.

When joined together, the buds are turned off; split them apart, and they’re ready for pairing and your music. Super convenient, and makes me want a pair even more!

Speaking of convenience, there’s fast charging, too. With only 10 minutes of charging, you can supposedly get five hours’ worth of usage time. And this works through USB-C, so it’ll work with your current smartphone charger — most likely.

The best part: It won’t cost an arm and leg. Beginning June 5, you can purchase the Bullets Wireless for GBP 69 in the UK, EUR 69 in other parts of Europe, and US$ 69 in the US.

OnePlus claims that┬áthey’ve been working on prototypes for years, but were never really satisfied until now. We’re certainly optimistic about its place in the audio space.

Ciel by Cyrill Samsung Galaxy S9 cases: Cute and colorful

Looking for a sleek Galaxy S9 case?

Published

on

Almost halfway through 2018, the Samsung Galaxy S9 still remains to be, in my book, one of the better-looking phones for this year. As sleek as it looks though, it’s still pretty slippery and that Infinity Display is something people with buttery fingers, like me, should be careful with.

The solution? Find yourself cases to protect your pretty phone! Sure, it’s a shame to cover up all that beauty, but if your cases are good-looking, too, then problem┬ásolved.

These cases from the Ciel by Cyrill line sent to us by Spigen were perfect for the job.

First up, this Collette Silver Glitter case for the S9 and S9+. Aside from being sparkly and cute, this dual-layered jelly case is really protective. The material looks thick and sturdy, and very good in my hands. ­čśë

The Claire Baby Pink case comes in a very pretty hue. The two-tone case has matching accents.

The three-piece set will fit your S9 snugly. The pink plastic layer adds protection to your device and gives it a stylish touch.


If this rosy color is not your thing, the Claire case also comes in a pretty powder blue. There are also other designs available — different glitter colors, marble, floral, plaid, etc — from the same line.

I’m definitely happy that this year, the S9 came in a beautiful lavender, aside from the normal black and blue handsets. But, the thing is, you’re not really limited to those colors if you have a great case.

You can buy these cases here.
