SF Bags Spinn Case - The Coolest iPhone Case With Earbuds Carrier
Since Sony’s Walkman Cassette Player and even further back, people enjoying music on the go have a common problem – what to do and how to properly store their headphones without much effort and still having them handy when needed! And, as easy and simple as it sounds, it’s still a common problem even today! If you your earbuds around your smartphone they look ugly and they are uncomfortable in your pockets, if you throw them in your bag they’ll get tangled and you’ll have a hard time next time you want to use them, if you properly wrap them chances are you’ll not remember where you put them or you’ll forget them at home!

ALSO READ about the iPhone Leather Wallet Case by Pack & Smooch, the Wally Snap-On iPhone Leather Wallet Case By DistilUnion or this cool collection of 44 Utilitarian iPhone Cases we featured earlier.

While it might not be the ultimate solution for everyone, the iPhone Spinn Case comes with a very intelligent solution to this issue – as most people carry their smartphones in sleeves, pouches or cases, why not use this protective gear to also hold your earbuds? The Spinn iPhone case is available for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and both iPhone 5 and 5S with or without the Apple case and it’s made of full grain leather with Ultrasuede interior liner. The case features a leather wheel centered on the security hook which allows you to wrap your earbuds around it and carry them securely stored. Also, while in use, you can wrap the extra cable around the leather wheel to keep it from tangling or staying in the way.

The Spin iPhone Case comes in three colors: black, chocolate or grizzly and, as an option, you can also order a snap closing belt clip.

BioLite Wood Burning Campstove With USB Charger
The BioLite Campstove is a cool multifunctional device designed to help campers cook a quick meal and … charge their iPhone or Android smartphones!
The devices works on renewable biomass (twigs, pinecones, wood pellets, you know, the regular stuff you find on the ground in the woods!!!) and has an output of 2W @5V (max continuous), up to 4W @5V on it’s peak. In plain English an output power of 2W @ 5V means close to the same power as a PC USB plug (a 20 minutes charge will allow an iPhone up to 45-60 minutes of talk time). It’s not the fastest charge in the world, but still, I’d be glad to have it with me when outdooring for a couple of days, away of regular electric power sources.

43 Cool Umbrellas To Brighten Your Rainy Days & Where To Buy Them

Most people I know hate rainy days! Personally, while I sometimes enjoy a walk in the rain, I can’t say I’m going crazy after them either!
Traffic sucks, people are stressed and angrier than on regular, sunny days and, overall, things tend to go rough on rainy days! And there’s another strange thing going on: following the same pattern as Murphy’s Law that says “Washing your car usually seems to bring rain“, umbrellas seem to vanish, they go broke or lost or they get forgotten at home every time rain is pouring outside!
So, as the rainy season just started, I went out after a cool umbrella to brighten my rainy days. Bellow are the coolest umbrellas I found around. There are a handful of other cool models I found but they were not available for purchase! My favorite is number 18, I can stick it in my backpack and forget about it … until it rains next time! What’s you favorite one?
You are not the only one who hates rain! Share this post, so your friends can also grab a cool umbrella and brighten their rainy days too!
