Let’s just own up to it—we’d be lost without our cell phones. They have become our go-to lifeline in our daily routines, but they are also a huge source of enjoyment, especially when you’re living life on the road.
That little electronic device that always seems to be in your hand is the key to connecting with the world around you, and high tech cell phone accessories help reduce the need to pack up other bulkier electronic items. Camera lens attachment kits let you leave the bulky DSLR at home, compact storage units takes the place of needing a laptop on hand, and small-size, high-output Bluetooth speakers allow you to leave the ghetto blaster behind.
Your cell phone helps make your day-to-day life easier, and these gadgets here allow you to maximize the enjoyment of your next road trip without weighing you down. Take a look around at the following products that aim to enhance the on-road experience you have with your cherished mobile device of choice.
Automatically back up your phone’s photos, videos and contacts every time you charge. Although the iXpand is the perfect emergency storage unit while out on the road, it is ultimately designed for everyday use. This helpful little gizmo is available in 64, 128 and 256GB options and is compatible with iPhone 5 or greater with Lightning connector and iOS 10+
You need tunes while on the go, and nothing allows you to access and enjoy your music than a handy dandy Bluetooth speaker. The SoundLink speaker from Bose offers crisp, balanced sound and bass response that you wouldn’t believe for its size. The waterproof case not only repels liquid, but also fights off dents and cracks and scratches. Wireless Bluetooth pairing makes it easy to connect to the speaker with your cell phone, and a full battery charge lasts a whopping 6 hours of play time.
Compatible with iPhone 6/6+, 7/7+, Samsung S8/S8+ models and GoPro Hero cameras, the Steadicam Volt helps create beautiful stable video captures. The lightweight, folding design makes it easy to travel with, and there are two video modes to choose from: “movie” and “sport”. The motorized gimbal will transition to work manually even if the battery power has run out. The Volt has surpassed its initial Kickstarter goal, finishing the campaign 1100% funded. If you are looking to capture your ride to share on social media, the Steadicam Volt will prove to be your new favorite tool.
Give your iPhone 5S, 6/6S, 7 and 8 model, as well as Samsung smartphones a boost with this clip-on camera lens kit from AMIR. It includes a super wide-angle lens, along with a Fisheye lens and 10x macro lens to take your photo and video captures on the road to a whole new level. All lenses are made of professional grade glass and reduce glass flare and ghosting caused by reflections to ensure you get the shot you want.
Charge your Galaxy smartphones and other Qi-compatible devices without plugging your device into an actual wall charger or USB port. Simply charge up the pad before you go and enjoy an on-the-go source of back up power when it’s needed most on the road.
This clever, four-leg design offers strong holding power without placing your phone behind a lot of unnecessary foam pads and plastic pieces that plague other handlebar mounts out there. To increase the holder’s utility, it is compatible with many other Ram Mounting products, including attachable ball mounts.
