These Bluetooth In-Ear Earphone Plugs will connect to your Smart device wirelessly leaving you complete freedom to move. Listen to music or take a call, connect one device or two – these earphone plugs can do it all. The box doubles up as both a place to store your earphones and a charge box. Connect and charge your earphones by plugging your USB cable into the box.
OTG USB 3.0 Flash Drive
As you may well know, passing documents and media content up into the cloud involves a monthly cost. While that may only stand at a low cost per month, the expense adds up fast with month-to-month payments. However, individuals will dispute that expandable memory is more costly and harder to get to, yet when buying an Apple OTG USB Flash Drive, you pay a one-time expense and can without much of a stretch switch data and media onto other gadgets.
The SanDisk 128GB iXpand V2 iPhone provides an instant data storage device with ultimate compatibility between smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs.

Apple 3.5mm Lightning Headphone Jack Adapter
Apple getting rid of the iPhone’s earphone jack should make life more streamlined, and keeping in mind that by and large it has. However, despite everything, it introduced something of a migraine for the individuals who needed to utilize their audio device to tune in to music, or even just to use their most loved headphones while charging their phone. Finding a conventional 3.5mm link with a lightning connector is no easy accomplishment, which is likely why Apple have delivered their 3.5mm Audio iPhone Adaptor. This is a must-have top accessory for any iPhone 8 user.
Sony Wireless Speaker
Portable Bluetooth speakers are one of the best ways you can listen to your favourite songs and podcasts anywhere you go. Although the speakers on your iPhone 8 are of a high-quality, they don’t necessarily have enough power to supply music to a party or have the capacity to sound an action film. So Bluetooth speakers are the best way to do these things with ease. You don’t have to deal with wires and can listen to audio anywhere you are, whether that be indoors or outdoors.
With approximately 16 hours of battery life, Sony’s Compact Portable Wireless Speaker with Extra Bass is easy to carry and brings out the best bass in your music. A passive radiator works with the monaural speaker to enhance low-end tones, giving the bass a boost – despite the compact size. In addition to this, this device is water-resistant. So you can relax knowing your speakers will be safe if you are using them outdoors.
Crystalusion Liquid Glass Protection Screen
Having a crack along your phone screen can be a frustrating feature to have look at everytime you go to unlock your iPhone 8. It’s also important to note that having a cracked or scratched screen will lower the resale value when you are looking to upgrade your device. However, having a screen protector can keep the phone surface pristine and stop any scratches from forming.
So whether it’s as a preventative measure or because you drop your phone near to every other day, it is worth purchasing a screen protector so you can pop your phone in your pocket without worrying.
Crystalusion Liquid Glass is a futuristic and effective way of protecting your smartphone, laptop, tablet, iPod, PSP or PC monitor. Using nanotechnology, it provides a resistive layer that protects coated surfaces from dirt, oil, dust, abrasion and bacteria for up to 12 months. Rather than a solid layer of plastic, it is actually a liquid that you wipe onto your device. This then sets, in a matter of minutes, to form a protective layer that is approximately 500 times thinner than a human hair. As it’s a liquid there won’t be any annoying bubbles that form and you can apply it to the whole of your device for all-around protection. You can even use it for your sunglasses, goggles or glasses.
Spigen Thin Fit Case
Smartphones are increasingly becoming more slimline and light, thus they’re not very durable when it comes to transporting your device. They are certainly not built like the unbreakable Nokia 3310, anyway.
Having a case on your phone provides an extra barrier around your device to help to prevent it from breaking or bending. Sure, some cases may be costly. But £20-£30 costs a lot less than the price of a completely new phone.
However, if you are reluctant to covering your sleek, shiny new phone, then why not purchase a Spigen Thin Fit Phone Case? With an extremely lightweight and bulk-free PC material, the Thin Fit demonstrates minimalism at its finest. Smooth curves and a slim profile display a seamless appearance and offer protection that’s airy yet reliable. Precise cutouts allow for quick and easy access while shock-resistant PC provides durable defence. So keep your iPhone 8 light and worry-free with Thin Fit.

Mobile Phone Holder
It’s hard to think of a time without smartphones. However, for all its advantages, smartphones can also be the reason for a number of accidents when in the car. For things like GPS or hands-free calling, it’s much easier to use a mobile phone holder to mount your smartphone in your car for easy access and to stop you from being distracted trying to find your device whilst driving.
If mounting your phone, it is crucial to ensure it is mounted correctly with a proper device on your dashboard, rather than being kept in the depths of your car.
