This holiday season give a gift that will make every techie in your life happy, the gift of power! Let’s face it, in a world of technology from smart phones to tablets, we are a connected society. But sometimes, that connection fails and we are left scrambling to charge our devices at home and on the go. Thankfully, there is Halo2 Cloud.
Halo2Cloud makes clever, innovative technology products to help save time and solve problems at home, in the car and at the office! With their extensive line of products, including portable chargers, you can remain connected where ever life takes you.
Halo2Cloud recently sent over a wonderful package or products for my family to experience. For this gadget-toting household, it was like Christmas morning.
The package included Halo2Cloud’s Bluetooth Retractable Headset, Halo Magic Cube, Halo Pocket Power 2800 & 5500, Halo Zoom Flashlight and Halo Scanner Mouse and Mousepad. Can you see how we were giddy with excitement?
With our collection of smart phones, tablets, iPods and laptops, it seems we are always hunting for chargers around the house or borrowing chargers when we are on the go. The Halo Magic Cube and Halo Pocket Power 2800 & 5500 portable chargers are just what this power hungry household needed!
THE PORTABLE CHARGERS
The Magic Power Cube is amazing for keeping smaller electronics, like cell phones and iPods charged. I love this charger because of its versatility. Shaped like a cube, it features three ways to power; USB, wall outlet or car charging port. Each part folds back into the cube when not in use. The Magic Power Cube includes USB to micro-USB cable for Android & Blackberry devices, 30-pin tip for iPhone 3, 4, and 4S, and carrying pouch.
Why we like it: My oldest daughter and my mother tried these out for me. My daughter is in love with the car charger part of the cube. She is a busy working mom of an active toddler and on the go much of the time. She can easily charge her phone in the car and store the cube in her diaper bag. I think my mom loved this the most. She received a new Kindle for her birthday and it didn’t come with a charger. She had being using my dad’s phone charger and it wasn’t always convenient when he was at work. She can use for her Kindle and it plugs right into the wall beside her.
The Halo Pocket Power 2800 is the sleek one of the bunch. A little bit larger than a lighter, it fits perfect in your pocket or bag and the fun styles make it the perfect accessory for a device. It is perfect for cell phones, cameras, Bluetooth devices, gaming systems, and other gadgets you need to charge when you’re away from a power source. It comes with the micro USB, mini USB, or 30-pin and is also compatible with phones and devices that have a charging cable equipped with a USB male connection cable, for example the iPhone 5.
But just how much juice can you get out of the Halo Pocket Power 2800? Depending on the device, you can charge over 1.5 times and up to 10 hours of additional talk time before it needs charging itself. The unit can stay fully charged for up to 12 months when not in use so it is always ready.
Why we like it: The 2800 has been the hot choice in this family. Because of it’s sleek, small design, it is perfect for the guys to just tuck in their pocket. My son is over the moon with this charger because it is easy for him to transport at school and on the job. Don’t be fooled by the 2800′s small stature, this guy packs a punch!
The Halo Pocket Power 5500 is the granddaddy of chargers. This bad boy packs a punch and can charge anything you throw at it; cell phones, tablets, gaming systems, GPS, Bluetooth, if it needs charged the 5500 will do the job in two hours. It may be a bit larger than the 2800 but that is because it demands respect. You can’t contain that much awesome in a little package. Includes USB Cable with 2 Interchangeable Tips.
Why we like it: As a blogger, this would be my charger of choice. On press trips, it doesn’t take long for my phone and camera’s battery to drain because of the live coverage. Often times, we are on the move to much to stop at an outlet and recharge. The 5500 is going to be godsend because it holds enough juice to keep my devices going all day.
I will let you in on a little secret. I have never used a Bluetooth Headset. I have a car full of kids on any given day and my phone is the last place I want to focus my concentration. My daughter however, is in her early 20′s and scares me to death combining the two. I knew the Halo Bluetooth Retractable Headset would give me peace of mind when she is on the road. This one gets my “Parent’s Choice” award as the perfect gift. With many styles to choose from, it is stylish and sure to please your fashion minded family members.
The Halo Bluetooth Retractable Headset keeps hands free while driving. The receiver can be clipped on clothing with the Bluetooth enabled earpiece retracting out. It has clear sound quality, incoming call alert and an out of range phone alert. It also has up to 7 hours talk time when fully charged.
Why we like it: To me, you can’t go wrong with a product that contributes to safety. My 20 year old daughter uses this Bluetooth while driving so she can be hands free and keep her eyes on the road. She was in the car with my husband when she was 17 and they were hit by someone distracted with their phone. She has no problems with the headset and the cool leopard prints matches her phone, always a plus.
The Halo Zoom Flashlights comes in sets of three. It is a small flashlight but has some cool features. It has an adjustable bean that allows you to light up a large area or zoom in close to something with the narrow beam. The controls allow you to adjust the brightness and it even has an emergency flash feature. The on/off button glows in the dark making it easier to find the controls. Available in three colors, these flashlights are as stylish as they are useful.
Why we like it: My husband is an electrician and uses this flashlight daily on the job. It’s perfect size for him to stick in his pocket and the adjusting beams come in handy in all aspects of the job. It’s a durable metal so if he drops it, it won’t phase it at all. We gave Kinsley one of the flashlights because she is always hauling daddy’s big ones around, looking for treasure under the catch or simply making pocket shadows on the wall. She thinks it is the bees knees and loves the flashing feature. She also puts it on the narrow beam and makes the cats chase it.
The Halo Scanner Mouse is a pretty cool invention! It functions like a regular computer mouse, but it also works as a convenient scanner that you can use to scan photos, documents and more, at a touch of a button! This easy-to-use, just put the document, drawing, book, magazine, photo–and larger items that won’t fit on a standard flatbed scanner–into the special Scanner Mouse Pad and then scan your item with the all-in-one mouse scanner. Once you’ve scanned your item with the mouse, it automatically sends the images onto your computer screen for easy editing, saving, printing, or sharing via social media or email. The Optical Character Recognition lets you transfer captured text into an editable document and it recognizes multiple fonts and languages.
Why we like it: The possibilities with the scanner mouse are endless. From homework projects to scanning craft ideas in magazines, I can think of so many handy uses for the mouse.
That is why we want to give it to one lucky reader! Yes, we have had so much fun with the products from Halo, we want to share! I am going to send one lucky person the Halo Scanner Mouse and Mouse Pad, a $123 value!
All in all, my family is very impressed with the Halo products. The quality is amazing, both durable and stylish and made to last. You just can’t go wrong with any of the Halo2Cloud products and they would make any techie on your list happy as a clam this holiday season.
You can find all the products above and more on the Halo2Cloud website.
