International giveaway: Nillkin fast wireless-charging kits

Published

on

Freedom from wires is like the holy grail of consumer tech.

In a perfect world, we wouldn’t need cables or plugs to connect devices, transfer files, get on the internet, or charge batteries.  

And we’re getting there, with fast mobile internet leading the charge. Wireless charging is slowly becoming a reality, too, although it has yet to enjoy the ubiquity of WiFi. Many phones like Samsung Galaxy S7 and Note 7 have wireless charging built-in. You just rest them on a charging plate, then charging happens magically.

iPhone users aren’t as lucky. But thanks to third-party accessory makers — you’ve got workarounds. One such brand is Shenzen-based Nillkin, which we first came across when we were looking for aftermarket cases for our OnePlus 3.

Nillkin has an accessory called Magic Tags, which basically gives any smartphone wireless-charging capabilities. The accessory literally looks like a mini-luggage tag — but with a flap you stick onto the back of your phone and a strap-like cable for connecting to your phone’s charging port.

The accessory will work with any wireless charger that supports the Qi standard. Nillkin makes Qi chargers, too — and we have three sets of fast wireless-charging plates and docks to giveaway to y’all

To enter our giveaway, just complete any of the tasks below. We’ll announce the winner on September 2nd, Friday.

Congratulations to the winners, Albert Balduman, Shazid Hasan Riam, and Ryan de Jesus. We have reached out to you via email. Please check your inbox!

LG launches three new XBoom Go speakers in Singapore

XBoom Go PL7, PL5, and PL2 have well-balanced sounds and compact designs

There’s one accessory that we need more than ever as we work from home. That’s a bluetooth speaker — it’s portable, convenient, and allows listening to tunes anytime, anywhere. Buyers on the lookout for a great Bluetooth speaker should look no further than LG’s XBoom speaker lineup. After all, LG is launching three new XBoom speakers in Singapore.

These three new speakers are the XBoom Go PL7, PL5, and PL2. All these speakers stand out from the competition through its well-balanced sound, enhanced usability and features, and compact design. LG partnered with MERIDIAN to ensure that its speakers produce high-quality sound with deep bass, clear treble, and rich vocals.

LG’s XBoom Go PL2

As for the XBoom Go PL7, LG equipped the speaker with dual tweeters. Like the rest of the lineup, it also comes with dual passive radiators and dual-action bass feature, as well as a sound boost to deliver consistent, crystal-clear, and bass-thumping sound across all frequencies.

LG also equipped some smarts across all speakers. All XBoom Go speakers support hands-free voice commands and multi-phone pairing. Listeners can take advantage of the built-in Wireless Party Link function to link two XBoom Go PL7 together.

Multi-color lighting is also available for both the XBoom Go PL7 and PL5. This lighting feature employs a sophisticated three-step process to detect the song’s beat and match it with corresponding colors.

On top of all the features, all XBoom Go speakers are IPX5-rated. Thus, listeners can use them for pool parties since the speakers are guaranteed to survive from sprays and splashes.

Interested buyers can buy the XBoom Go PL7, PL5, and PL2 on all authorized retailers (Best Denki, Challenger, COURTS, Harvey Norman, NTUC, and Popular) across Singapore. For more information, visit LG Singapore’s website.
