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!

Galaxy Buds Pro

Samsung is going from Live to Pro in the True Wireless (TWS) earbuds department with the all new Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro. 

Samsung took their sweet time slapping on the “Pro” tag but it seems it’s well worth the wait. Headline features include intelligent Active Noise Cancellation or ANC and IPX7 water resistance among others.

The Galaxy Buds Pro has intelligent Active Noise Cancellation or ANC. It’s smart enough to adjust the noise cancelling levels depending on your situation and surroundings. If you’re out walking, it’ll adjust the noise levels to make sure you still hear if some vehicle is about to run you over. We don’t want anyone getting run over.

It can do this thanks to multiple audio settings that mimic multi-directional surround sound. It has a 6.5mm tweeter and 11mm woofer for better sound.

LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier

LG first unveiled the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier at IFA 2020 and now it’s available for purchase in Singapore.

The the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier can be your go-to mask as we navigate life under a pandemic. It employs two Total Care Filters similar to the HEPA filters used in the company’s home air purifier products. The filters not only purify air coming into the lungs, they also filter exhaled air just as effectively.

LG’s wearable air purifier allows users to take in clean, filtered air with its Dual Fans and patented Respiratory Sensor. Meanwhile, the Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath and adjusts the dual three-speed fans accordingly. The fans automatically speed up to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance when exhaling to make breathing effortless.
