MEGATech Videos: Monoprice Mobile Accessories to Revitalize Your Smartphone Michael Kwan January 26, 2015 MEGATech Videos The quiet heroes that allow us to lead our increasingly digital lifestyles are the various cables that connect our gadgets to one another. We need the HDMI cables for our televisions, audio cables for our speakers, networking cables for our routers and so on. And then you have all the different adapters too. Monoprice has long since been a trusted source of all these cables and adapters, but did you know that they have a huge range of mobile accessories for your smartphone too? While we may all lust after the newest smartphones with their increased pixel density and more processing cores, you can still breathe new life into your older smartphone by outfitting it with the right gear. And so, just as we did the LUXA2 holiday gift guide last month, we’re back this month to showcase some of the great gear you can get from Monoprice to let your older smartphone feel like new with more features and functionality. As I mentioned on my own blog, I bought a Nexus 5 late last year, knowing full well that the smartphone was already a year old. For me, it mostly came down to what phone I could get for free on contract. I wanted the best bang for my buck and the Nexus 5, spec for spec, can still compete with many more recent competitors. Having the Nexus appeal of quick Android updates was great too. But, of course, the Nexus 5 is hardly new anymore. Through Monoprice, we were able to take a look at several mobile accessories that make that old phone feel fun and new again. I really liked the OnePlus One-inspired “soft sand finish” case for my phone, for instance, as it’s quite different from the more standard TPU cases. The affordable pico projector is a real game-changer too, as I’m able to project videos from my phone at an effective size of up to 60 inches. And if that two-hour (or so) battery on the pico projector isn’t enough, I can keep the show going with the very well-built power bank and listen to the movie through the stylish Bluetooth headphones. And in line with everything else that Monoprice does, all of these products are surprisingly high quality given their more affordable price points. The Monoprice products featured in this video are: PC Case with Soft Sand Finish for Nexus 5 (PN 11003) Mobile Media Display Pico Projector (PN 9990) Slimport to HDMI Adapter (PN 10252) 5200mAh Battery Backup with LED Flashlight (PN 10576) Bluetooth Portable 360 Speaker (PN 11425 Bluetooth On-the-Ear Headphones (PN 11947) Be sure to watch the full video overview embedded above and peep the image gallery below for more photos of the featured products. Remember that this only represents a small sample of the mobile accessories available from Monoprice, so regardless of what smartphone you have, they’re bound to have something fun and affordable for you too.
