Mujjo Leather Wallet Case: Learning the art of letting go

Say goodbye to bulky pockets

Published

on

For years, I’ve been an over-packer. I bring a lot of things I don’t need even during the most simple occasions. Whenever I go to the bank, have a lunch date, meet someone at a cafe, or enjoy a simple night-out with my friends, I always have the urge to bring non-essential essentials and stuff them into a man purse or a small bag.

My issues with over packing stems from my anxiety. What if I drain my battery and can’t book a cab later? Do I need to bring my 20000mAh power bank today? It’s difficult to calm the F train down when my anxiety is caused by my fear of inconvenience.

In reality, I don’t actually need my accessories to accompany me on my errands. What I need is just my smartphone and cards. To train myself from bringing fewer things, I started looking for a leather wallet phone case to carry only my musts.

The phone case that I’ve been looking for

I chanced upon Mujjo’s leather wallet case a few months back, and as a leather lover, I instantly fell in love with it. At that moment, it felt like a godsend to all my worries.

Mujjo’s leather wallet case exudes a classy, premium vibe. Made with authentic leather, it’s guaranteed to age beautifully as part of your life. The case is sleek and doesn’t scream attention — more reason why this accessory was love at first sight for me.

I don’t require a case that attracts more attention than needed. After all, it’s an accessory; it needs to subtly accentuate how stunning I am. Just look at how it matches my leather jacket.

The case fits perfectly on a phone, and its button padding is highly responsive. With its Japanese suede lining on the back, I must say that it’s beautifully crafted.

This case also features a stitched leather pocket on the back that can carry two to three cards. Yes, it can fit your credit card, commuter card, and even an ID (but definitely not your baggage).

Learning the art of letting go

Mujjo’s leather wallet case gives a different kind of pleasure. Its smell oozes with class and style, and there’s a natural high when your fingertips linger on the surface of a vegetable-tanned leather.

More importantly, it’s easy to grip, and it doesn’t slip out from my hands, but you learn to let go of items that you don’t need when you go out. I stopped bringing my bulky, leather wallet and opted for a cashless lifestyle. I didn’t bother bringing a man purse or a small bag to stuff my accessories like my 20000mAh power bank.

To date, the case has helped me believe that less is more. The fear of inconvenience subsides because at the end of the day, I’m an adult capable of making adjustments. If I encounter a problem and only have my smartphone and cards, I’m pretty sure I can always find a way.

Does this case match your lifestyle?

For people who are already living a minimalist lifestyle, Mujjo’s leather wallet case is a suitable accessory. For those who are trying to break the cycle of being an over-packer and learning the art of letting go, a leather wallet case is a good start. This particular case is for the iPhone XR and it comes in Tan, Olive, Black, and Blue for EUR 41.

Mujjo crafts premium leather wallet cases in different colors for other iPhones and the Galaxy S series, as well. They ship worldwide with free shipping for orders above EUR 60. Check their portfolio of cases here.

3 accessories that should be inside your gym bag

Forget trackers and sports watches

Published

on

Working out has been a holy grail in my daily life. Even though gyms are closed, I made it a habit to use my gym bag. It made it easier to keep my stuff organized, and it helps with compartmentalizing. I can focus on my workout when I dedicate a space for everything related to fitness.

By now, you probably know the usual essentials that should be inside your bag. Smartphones, smartwatch, resistance band, hand wraps, water bottles, extra clothes, and more.

But I’ll let you in on my little world: I have three mainstay accessories inside my gym bag which I deem essential for my workouts — whether it’s at the gym or at home.

Soundcore 3

A portable Bluetooth speaker isn’t something I would use at the gym. But on my outdoor workouts and the social distancing imposed in almost every location, I need entertainment that allows me to still be in tune with my surroundings.

This is why the Soundcore 3 has been a great companion that I bring in my routines, especially when I decided not to use my pair of wireless earbuds.

It pumps up the bass even at low volumes, making my cardio exercises a bit more fun. And its dual drivers with pure titanium diaphragms minimize distortion for clearer audio.

The Soundcore 3 also has easy controls and carries a massive battery that gives you 24-hour playtime. Yes, my dear friend. You can listen to more than 400 songs on a single charge.

But what I like about it the most is its IPX7 rating. It gives me peace of mind when I hold the speakers with my sweaty hands or when I work out in the rain. And because I can bring it to the shower whenever I practice my dance moves.

The Soundcore 3 retails for PhP 3,195.

Powercore 5000

Another mainstay in my gym bag is an ultra-compact power bank from Anker. Called Powercore 5000, this power bank slides easily in your pocket (or your bag’s pockets). With 5000mAh capacity, it can recharge either my phone or my Soundcore 3 whenever I take a rest.

It does not support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, but it still sports an exclusive PowerIQ technology so you can still experience high-speed charging for your gadgets.

Nonetheless, it comes with a travel pouch so you can keep your power bank safe, a MicroUSB cable for connectivity, a welcome guide, and a worry-free 18-month warranty.

The Powercore 5000 retails for PhP 1,295.

Anker Powerline 3-in-1

I like being prepared and ready at all times. This is why even a cable was able to count as a mainstay in my bag. Anker’s Powerline 3-in-1 is a handy accessory since it has interchangeable connectors — Lightning, Micro USB, and USB-C.

It makes it easier to charge several devices that have different ports, without carrying multiple cables that would probably populate my organizers. Luckily, the Powerline 3-in-1 keeps the internal wiring protected so I don’t have to worry about replacing cables anytime soon.

Plus, it has an MFi certification from Apple so it charges fast and safe — which I lend to my friends that use an iPhone, who for some reason, always forget to carry their own cables.

The Anker Powerline 3-in-1 retails for PhP 995.

Nothing launches first product, the ear (1), for only £99

Featuring 34 hours of battery life

Published

on

Over the past few months, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei kept teasing his brand-new venture after leaving his previous company behind. The new venture, Nothing, promised interesting and innovative products for the audio segment. Because of the teases, we already know a lot about the company’s first product: the ear (1). Now, it’s time for the main course.

Nothing has officially launched the ear (1) for markets worldwide. As depicted in official product photos, the wearable will feature a semi-transparent chassis and charging case. It will have pressure-relieving vents and customizable silicone ear tips.

Inside, the ear (1) sports a capable 11.6mm driver and will feature Active Noise Cancellation. The Active Noise Cancellation has three different modes depending on the environment you’re in.

Besides the default Transparency mode, Light mode, as the name suggests, is a more moderate form of noise cancellation which lets some noise in. It’s perfect for when you still need to be aware of your surroundings like during commutes. On the other hand, Maximum mode blocks in all noise for when you’re in very busy environments.

For connectivity, it will support Bluetooth 5.2 for seamless connections with your device. It comes with an ear (1) app which includes features like Find My Earbud, an equalizer, and a gesture control menu.

As teased before, the charging case will indeed have 24 hours of battery life (and more). It will supposedly have 34 hours of charge. Each bud will have 5.7 hours of listening time and can charge to full in only ten minutes with the case. The case charges wirelessly and can be charged with any Qi charger.

The ear (1) will retail for GBP 99. A limited drop will open on July 31 through nothing.tech. Official sales will begin on August 17.

Wireless charging is making a huge push. Last year, Apple resurrected the MagSafe system, opening up the magnetic charging solution for iPhone users. However, If you’re from the other side, you’re likely wondering when Android is getting its first magnetic charger. Well, wait no more. realme has officially teased an upcoming magnetic wireless charger.

Leaked by GSMArena, the company will launch the realme MagDart will work like Apple’s MagSafe charger. However, according to the leaked render, the charger is larger than Apple’s charger.

To coincide with the charger’s upcoming release, realme is also launching the first compatible smartphone: the realme Flash. Not much is known about the upcoming phone, but it is touted as “the first Android smartphone” that can support the charging solution.
