Nomadplug: The only travel adapter you’ll ever need

It works in all 195 countries!

Published

on

I remember one particularly long layover at the Hamad Airport in Doha. I was ready to have a few productive hours at the airport but as I set up my laptop, I realized I needed to charge. No biggie, except I was in Doha and hadn’t packed a converter. My airport productivity cost me around QAR 200 (or around US$ 60). A similar scenario happened again on my last Europe trip, and yet again in China.

The struggle is real. But, I may just have stumbled upon a solution.

The Nomadplug is a travel adapter that will work in all 195 countries of the world. Now, I know you’d expect a gadget like this to be big, bulky, and complicated (as I did) but it’s not.

Yup, this sleek thing plugs in anywhere in the world for anything that you bring — from charging phones and cameras to hairdryers and styling tools.

It also has fast-charging capabilities and allows for plugging in more than one device (there are two USB-A ports and one USB-C port that can be used at the same time). There’s even a 5000mAh power bank built in! The best part? It packs into one sleek, easy-to-carry bar that comes in a number of cute colors.

Each adapter will retail for approximately US$ 120 which honestly isn’t bad considering you’ll never need another adapter in your life, ever. Prototypes will be available for testing at CES 2019.

TWICE x CASETiFY collection officially dropping on Feb 9

‘Full of love to ONCE’

Published

on

TWICE really knows how to make ONCEs (they’re fandom) feel special. The global superstar K-Pop group is teaming up with tech lifestyle brand CASETiFY for a special collection. The waitlist for their first ever collaboration has begun. The official release is set on February 9, 2023.

TWICE x CASETiFY

The collection was made to celebrate TWICE entering their 8th year. There’s a huge focus on ONCE as well as artworks inspired by the world of TWICE.

The TWICE-ful Love Grippy Case is the highlight of the collection. It’s decorated with a cushion designed with the TWICE Logo. It’s the first 3D phone case from CASETiFY with this kind of design. The case, however, is only available for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

But cheer up since the collection does include many other designs made for different smartphone models and gadgets. The lineup is filled with TWICE’s history and ONCE’s memories.

There’s a sticker case highlighting the tracks from the past seven years, a signature case with the members’ signatures, a Heart case with the members’ names, and lastly, an artwork featuring one of their top songs, “What is Love?”

For Apple-loving TWICE fans, there are also AirPod cases, Apple Watch bands, MacBook Sleeves, and a bead strap with the original heart color stones of all the members. There’s also a phone strap with TWICE logo metal charm.

Win a phone case signed by your TWICE bias

 

Whichever member is your favorite: Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, or Tzuyu, you’ll have a chance to win a case autographed by one of the members. CASETiFY STUDIO Shibuya Parco in Japan will have special wall displays with autographed cases and artwork from the collection. More details on the campaign coming soon.

The TWICE x CASETiFY collection launches worldwide on casetify.com/co-lab, available for purchase online, in the CASETiFY Co-Lab app (available now in the App Store), and at CASETiFY Studio locations.

Google is working on an AirTag competitor

Codenamed “grogu”

Published

on

Since its launch, the AirTag has created a whirlwind of controversy because of how the tracking device was used (or misused). Today, the general consensus is that the AirTag offers more benefits than potential drawbacks. Everyone now wants in. Google, according to a recent finding, is reportedly working on its own AirTag competitor.

Via Kuba Wojciechowski and Mishaal Rahman on Twitter, Google is developing quite a bit in the tracking device segment. The developers are currently expanding the lineup of Fast Pair to include support for more locator tags like the AirTag. However, besides support for other devices, the development also includes references to a first-party tracking device.

The device, “grogu” as it’s currently called, is under development by the Nest team. It will include on-board speakers and Bluetooth LE support.

Google has not hinted at any developments to confirm any upcoming tracking device. With the currently available information, it’s impossible to check what the final product will be called or what features it will come with.

A Google-based tracking device will still be a godsend for users, though. Currently, only Tile offers an alternative to the Apple-based AirTag. Besides allowing users to keep track of their misplaced devices, a tracking device is now an essential must-have for travelers to make sure airlines don’t accidentally misplace pieces of luggage.
