Matching Nillkin phone accessory sets makes for great gifts

Gifts for yourself

Published

Smartphone releases are getting prettier and prettier, so it’s only right that phone accessories catch up to this trend.

I tend to think that phone cases, aside from protecting my phone, should add to the whole aesthetic of my handset. And though there are a number of case options and designs to choose from, there aren’t really a lot that have matching wireless chargers and cords.

Popular phone accessory maker Nillkin has stepped up to the design plate to give users just that. They’ve recently announced their gift sets: a box set with matching items that include a tempered glass case, a wireless charging pad, and a 3-in-1 cord. They’re looking pretty good. 😍

The first box is a pink, flower-themed set and it’s the daintiest-looking thing ever. The case and charging pad sport the same pattern with the cord in a matching color theme to boot.

There’s also a blue box that comes with a colorful pattern with purple and pink hues. (My favorite set!)

The third box is a neutral black set — which I really wasn’t fond of, but it looks great in that box set, nonetheless.

Aside from this, Nillkin has yet to announce anything else about these sets, so there isn’t any news on pricing and availability for now.

One thing’s for sure: Once you get your hands on these, all you’re missing are the outfits to match!

Apple is developing a MagSafe wireless powerbank

Prototype stages already

Published

on

When Apple’s new MagSafe system launched late last year, the magnetic charging system promised a new wave of Apple accessories. At the time, however, the system focused on wireless charging. Eventually, MagSafe promises to expand into its own empire of different functionalities and form factors. Now, apart from its initial slew of sleeves, Apple is reportedly developing a MagSafe wireless powerbank for the system.

According to a Bloomberg source, the company is already well on its way to developing the MagSafe accessory. Unfortunately, Apple has reportedly ran into some snags on the way to perfecting it. Apparently, the currently reported prototype caused false overheating alerts, among other problems. Despite rumors of its development, Apple will likely shelf the accessory until it can develop a better one.

For anyone following Apple’s developmental process over the years, such a delay is not a surprise. Apple usually takes its time optimizing products before launching them — to the point of falling behind to Android. Given Apple’s tremendous investment in a new MagSafe ecosystem, the company is likely working extra hard on perfected products to boost the system further.

For accessory aficionados, a wireless powerbank isn’t an entirely new concept. Numerous accessory makers have already released several powerbanks using the Qi wireless charging system. In Apple’s defense, a MagSafe powerbank will take advantage of the system’s magnetic attachment system, preventing the powerbank from slipping and sliding everywhere.
