How to extend the battery life on your energy sucking iphone and a giveaway

love my iphone and I it would take a lot for me to consider jumping ship to another brand.I am an apple girl through and through BUT I do want to bang my head against a wall when it comes to the battery life. There is no rhyme or reason to why it drains on some days more than others. Of course it depletes at the speed of light when I need it the most. Murphys law right?

I was lucky enough to be able to trial a few awesome Logitech Products.

Logitech designs personal peripherals to help people enjoy a better experience with the digital world. Logitech’s leadership in innovation now encompasses a wide variety of personal peripherals (both cordless and corded), with special emphasis on products for PC navigation, gaming, Internet communications, digital music and home-entertainment control.

A new Logitech product range

Logitech have just launched a new product range. The product is a new case system for iPhones which is called Case+. The case is a smart sturdy case for iPhone 5/5S with a metal backing that provides protection. Case+ comes with a variety of accessories to add on to the case:

1. Case + Drive

This magnetic car mount allows you to safely mount your phone whilst driving. The magnetic mount means you just snap on your phone very easily and there’s no fussing about with getting it into a cradle. It also comes with a small metal stick on piece that allows you to mount any phone on the mount – not just an iPhone

This I LOVE and highly recommend. I have had numerous car mounts and they have all sucked. They don’t stay stuck to the screen, I have to fuss too much when I pop my phone into it. THis little baby is stuck on tight to my screen, it is small and I just have to place my phone with magnetic cover near it and wham it is attached.

1. Case + Energy

This useful battery pack doubles the power of your phone

This my friends is amazing for when your phone is dying or is dead. It is a case that slips on t your phone and charges whilst you are still able to use it as normal. It does add a little bulk and I would not want it on there all the time but it charges so quickly that it is no bother. It is small enough to slip into a small handbag if you are heading out for a big day or night. Those are the times when you need it the most. This is a MUST have accessory for any busy person especially in business when you cant afford “my phone died” as an excuse over and over.

1. Case + Tilt

This magnetic backing attaches to the case and once folded acts as a stand for your iPhone

This is a cool little extra that I like but have not used that much to be honest. Handy for my kids if they were sitting watching a movie on the phone and wanted to rest it upright.

The products are all of high quality and I have no qualms in recommending them to you.

I have a fabulous little take anywhere bluetooth speaker valued at $100 to give away to one lucky reader. Just leave a comment with your favourite Logitech product and why.

I will announce the winner on the 27th of February after 7pm.

The winner is Lainie Brookman. Congratulations!!!

    I love the idea of the charging cover. I so need one of those. I always have my charger with me & am constantly looking for power points to plug in when I’m out & about.

      It really is amazing.
      I was out all day and night on Saturday and whilst everyone else had dying phones, I just slipped my cover on and was fully charged again very quickly.

    Ooooh the case + energy sounds great, might have to invest in one of those…perfect for my busy life that my iphone battery does not seem to keep up with!

    The case + drive looks like it could be just what I need! I’m adding that to my wish list 🙂

    Oooh! The case + drive is exactly what I need to buy. It is so much better than my current cradle which is just plain annoying to use.

    I love the idea of both the car mount & the charger! Super handy when the phone loses battery unexpectedly!

    The charger sounds like the perfect cure to those days where you forgot to charge your phone last night and will be out and about all day today… those days happen at least once a week for me!

      Only once a week? lol
      It is a regular occurrence for me but not anymore

    I have always loved Logitech for the webcam.. but now they are all built in. I am the worlds WORST at having a flat phone… so this would be ace. not to mention a car mount so I no longer have to use the bra strap holder. 🙂

    I cannot believe how quickly my battery dies too, even when i have not even touched my phone!! It certainly is frustrating especially when you know you will be out all day & it conks out on you! I would certainly be all over the charger!

    I constantly use my iPhone to seach recipes and follow whist I’m cooking but always manage to spill something on it. So I purchased a Logitech Case + Tilt and no more sticky dirty phone. The case holds the phone up like a book so it’s easy to read! Genius. Plus it’s great for reading webpages and books as well.

      Thats great Jade. Thanks for giving me a great idea of when to use it.

    My computer mouse is a maestro – it can do anything, any-time I command it too! Just a shame the rest of the household doesn’t follow suit!
