In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some ideal holiday gifts when it comes to phone accessories. While many prefer to let their friends or loved ones choose their own actual cell phone model, purchasing various accessories for them as a holiday gift is often a perfect addition.
At FixIT Mobile, we’re happy to provide not only cell phone repair and other device repair services, but also pre-owned cell phones and tablets plus expertise on numerous other cell phone accessories – including those you may want to give as gifts this time of year. Today’s part two of our series will dig into a few more top holiday gifts for phone lovers out there.
A common concern among phone owners, especially those with older phones they haven’t upgraded for a few years, is battery capacity. This is particularly true when you’re outside or away from charging sources for a long period at once.
There are several ideal accessories here, many of which will work as holiday gifts. For instance, both Apple and Android phone companies make portable chargers for their devices – these are simple, small items that fit in your pocket and connect to your device’s typical charging cable. They’ll usually hold at least 200% of your phone’s battery capacity at once, if not significantly more. In addition, many of these items use basic USB ports for charging, meaning they can also charge other items like tablets, laptops and more.
One of the more recent additions to the phone gadget library is the dop kit, which is a device that allows for sticking your phone to a flat surface – even if it’s not horizontal. It functions almost like a magnet, but is actually suction-based and can be removed and placed on virtually any surface. It allows you to lock in the phone’s placement and then swivel it around as needed. It’s a perfect gift for someone you know likes to watch videos or use their phone in multiple settings.
Holders and Sticks
Down similar lines, there are many reasons people want to be able to hold or otherwise secure their phones. From selfie sticks to desktop holders, tripod holders for video capture and many other options here, there’s a virtually limitless catalog of items you might consider for the phone lover in your life. Just be sure you purchase a holder or stick type that’s meant to fit the device in question – most of these will be universal and allow for multiple devices, but there are some designed for a specific phone model.
