Powerbeats Pro, Pico Genie & Other Accessories That Will Give Your Smartphone A Tech Boost
By Rajarshi Bhattacharya
There is no doubt that the latest smartphones are impressive and only getting better over the years. Yet there are numerous ways you can get more out of your mobile handset, thanks to a range of amazing peripherals made especially for the smartphones. Here are some:
The new wireless earbuds are an update to Beats’ popular headphones. They have a better high-end look and feel, no wire to connect them and the same internals as Apple’s AirPods 2. They support up to nine hours of listening time, have hands-free controls via voice, and come with sensors that detect when you’ve put the earphones in your ears to start playing music and pause when you take them out.
Pico Genie P200 Portable LED Projector
It is a handheld smartphone projector offering 200 lumens and 120" image sizes. The P200 fits into your pockets and mirroring your mobile phone or tablet screen is also easy — just connect your device to it and project anywhere. It is ideal for home use, travelling, business or even as a portable home cinema.
Mophie Juice Pack Ultra Case
It’s a protective case for your smartphone that also doubles as its lifeline when running low on battery. Regardless of your phone allegiance, the accessory will extend the power of your iPhone or Samsung device up to almost 31 hours, while also allowing Qi wireless charging pass-through. The case also gives you access to the Lightning port at the base of your device.
Flir One Pro
Thermal imaging cameras are fundamentally low-resolution. But not the Flir One Pro. It is one of the most powerful consumer-level thermal camera accessories for your smartphone, with high-resolution and temperature measurement. One of its two cameras has a thermal core with a 160x120-resolution sensor that measures heat through infrared emission.
DxO ONE 20.2MP Digital Connected Camera
While the builtin camera of your smartphone is great for taking photos, it tends to suffer from the limitations of its small sensor. The DxO One is a good peripheral to overcome that for your iPhone and iPad with WiFi. Unlike add-on lenses, the DxO One is a standalone camera with its own lens and sensor. It can capture details even in low light and take impressive portraits with soft bokeh. The camera can even shoot in RAW.
DJI Osmo Mobile 2
The Osmo Mobile 2 is a lightweight handheld smartphone gimbal made for the mobile videographers among us. It uses built-in sensors and brushless motors to ensure video stability. It allows features like timelapse, HD panoramas, zoom control. It has a power back-up of 15 hours that also helps you recharge your smartphone.
