iPhone 5 is one of the most stunning phones in the market right now and a desire for many. While it boasts of cools specs and features, there’re some issues like low battery-life etc. Here are some iPhone accessories that help me to get more from this device.
Battery Love: Mophie Juice Pack
If you own an iPhone 5, you must be suffering from low battery woes. The battery really dies fast and if you’re on a 3G connection then it is even worse. I had read about juice packs that power your phone in in-flight magazines. However, I found out those juice-packs to be bulky and nothing less than a hassle for frequent usage. I thought someone somewhere would have made a juice pack which matches up with the iPhone 5 itself.
Thankfully there’s one in the form of Mophie juice pack. Unfortunately, these guys don’t ship to India so be prepared to shell-out some good money on shipping if you plan to own this one. As for me, a kind buddy Sandeep Oruganti was generous to ship it all the way to India and gift this pack to me :)
Camera Love: Lenses + Tripod from Photojojo
If you’re one of those amateur photography nerds and spend your time taking a lot of random pictures from food to coffee then there’re a couple of accessories that you might want to add to your iPhone kit.
Photojojo Lens for iPhone
They’ve got a bunch of iPhone 5 lenses in the form of Macros, Fisheye, Wide angle and Telephoto etc. I’m in love with #photojojomacro lens which enables you to take those super-close macro shots with an iPhone 5.
Off-course you can never compare its quality with a DSLR but it is still very good. The macro lens comes for 20$ but again be ready to pay for the shipping duty as these guys aren’t in India yet :) I also have the telephoto lens from Photojojo but haven’t used it much as it just offers you a 2X zoom.
Gorillopod GripTight Tripod Stand
While taking those awesome pictures with buddies/family you feel that you could have been a part of them? Check this Gorillapod Stand then :) It’s perfect for self portraits and group shots. Available at photojojo for 35$ and some more for the shipping cost.
Music Love: Fake Beats by Dr. Dre Bluetooth Speaker
Warning: Ignore this if you’re a brand loyalist at heart :) I picked this ‘mini bluetooth speaker’ from the street market in Thailand. At the first sight, you’d be fooled by its looks since it comes with the branding of the original Beats by Dr. Dre. The audio quality is quite good and for a speaker of this size the bass packs a considerable punch.
Give this speaker a shot before you put in big bucks to buy the real ones :)
