  • Rugged Backup Battery Solution - goBAT 12000

    goBAT 12000 charging a boomBOTTLE+ and iPhone

    By Chris Merritt

    Being an outdoor enthusiast is something that has been a part of who I am since growing up in Northern New England. I grew up in a ski town in the White Mountains of New Hampshire that had, even more, great things to offer during the summer months. Mountain biking, camping, hiking, canoeing, and kayaking were all things I did growing up in this beautiful area. I developed a love for nature and all that it had to offer beginning in my childhood.

    As I grew up, I was at just the right age to be growing with technology. The popularity of the computers and the internet and all that it had to offer during the 1990s and 2000s was right there as I was a teenager and young adult. I have always found myself on the forefront of technology, often times as an early adopter. I constantly seek the latest tech gear as new technologies are introduced. iPods, iPhones, Bluetooth speakers, digital cameras, video cameras - you name it and I had my hands on it.

    Now, I live in an age where my smartphone is a vital part of my daily life. I use it for communication, information, music, and photos. This is where the tricky part of blending my two passions lies. Like most smartphone users I charge my phone every night. I go to bed, and my phone goes to bed. The question was then what do I do when I decide I want to go camping or anywhere away from electricity for an extended period of time. I would love to just turn my phone off, but I enjoy listening to music while I am enjoying the great outdoors as well as shooting photos and video. So what do I do when my phone dies at the end of the first day?

    Scosche, fortunately, had something up their sleeves. The new goBAT™ 12000 Rugged Portable Backup Battery is everything I could have ever needed to solve this conundrum. It can charge my phone up to six times on a single charge.

    This means I can leave for a week-long camping trip and never have to worry about finding a place where I can charge my phone. I can be free to listen to music and take photos and videos all day long. At the end of the day, I can do what I do every night at home when I go to bed and plug my phone into the goBAT 12000 and let it charge back to its capacity.

    I can also bring along my camera and be able to charge it when necessary. Now I can capture all the beauty that nature has to offer without having to hold back at the fear of my battery dying on me.

    The goBAT 12000 even has two USB ports so I can charge both my phone and any other USB devices I bring along with me. Finally, a solution for someone who loves the outdoors, but also loves technology.

    What makes the goBAT 12000 different from other USB battery packs out there is that it is built to be rugged. This isn’t some fragile piece of technology that needs to be handled in a delicate manner. This thing is waterproof, dustproof and can even be dropped and banged around without any worry of it breaking. The battery’s ruggedness is validated by it being subjected to and passing the MIL-STD-810 shock test. A perfect example would be when I’m carrying all my gear to a camp site. Like most men, the idea to take more than one trip would be absurd. I can know that if this were to fall out of my pack, hit a rock, fall into a puddle, or whatever other unforeseen circumstance that I would find myself facing that the goBAT 12000 will be just fine.

    The goBAT 12000 is also extremely useful when traveling. Living in California now I will travel back to New England a few times a year and being able to charge my phone, tablet, Bluetooth headset, or whatever else I am carrying with me offers great piece-of-mind so I can do what I want, and not be stuck staring at the back of the seat in front of me for a six-hour plane ride. Never again do I have to be one of those people at the airport camped around the power outlets guarding my place like an attack dog. This is a must for anyone who loves to enjoy technology while being able to live their lives without the constant pursuit of where to find the next free power outlet.

  • Holiday Shopping in Modern Times

    Shopping Mall

    By Chris Merritt

    In the All-Your-Holiday-Shopping-Has-To-Be-Done-Now-Or-You-Will-Disappoint-All-of-Your-Loved-Ones-and-Be-Cast-Out-of-Your-Family time period that we’re immersed in right now I find myself being inundated with emails. Many of them originate from businesses where I’ve recently made online purchases, although some weren’t even all that recent. It’s like the Holiday Season is taking over  my email on a daily basis.

    In light of this, I’ve been inspired to reflect upon how I ended up on the receiving end of these emails - the original purchases I made on these sites. What was that one thing (or more) that got me on these sites in the first place? What was it that made me  so satisfied with the products and the companies that I signed up for their email communications? I will read these emails when they come in most of the time - especially if/when there is a sale. You can never know what kinds of great deals await.

    Do you remember when ordering products online was considered to be a sketchy endeavor?  It wasn’t that long ago  that people felt fearful and nervous about entering their credit/debit card info for an online order. These days it seems like the opposite – you’re actually safer ordering online.

    There is a hybridization of experiences for holiday shopping where you can order online and then pickup at a local store as well, but even that can have its drawbacks. I recently had an experience where I ordered something online that was said to be in stock at the store only to have the store not be able to locate the item to fill my order. Two days later, when I found the item at another store of the same chain, I was then advised to cancel the original order. I then couldn’t get the gift card refunded that I had used for the purchase, so that took another two days to get cleared up. Five days and quite a few headaches later I got my goods, but I would much rather have saved myself the hassle by ordering  online and receiving it in the mail..

    I am all for the anti-lazy approach of physically shopping, but with stores being so ridiculously congested, staff being overworked and items running out of stock it’s hard to get motivated to deal with it all.  Even finding a place to park is a major challenge!  Then, if you’re at all like me, you have a 50 percent chance of finding the one icy spot in the parking lot guaranteeing a spectacular wipeout for all to see. Because of all this, and I’m sure plenty of other reasons I didn’t list, online shopping truly has become the most convenient means for holiday shopping. Fight crowds at the mall versus using my laptop while in my pajamas on my couch sipping some hot chocolate - no brainer.

    This was a large part of the inspiration for the new design for Scosche.com. It was designed to make sure that the user shopping experience was simplified, fast and efficient, starting with the ability to find the products you want throughout the checkout process. Product collections have also been introduced so you can find products that complement each other as well as a slick user interface that is responsive in design to display clearly on all devices. There is the New Arrivals page that provides you with some of the newest products Scosche has available plus Coming Soon which as the name implies gives you a glimpse at what new products will soon be available. Ease of use and the satisfaction of the end user were the primary focus during the site’s redesign because user experience is what makes or breaks an online buying decision. Finally - some simplicity to the craziness that is holiday shopping!

  • Confessions of a Scosche magicMOUNT Addict

    Scosche magicMOUNT

     

    By: Lynn Grogan

    I’ll admit, I have a rather unhealthy attachment to my phone. Sometimes, it will inexplicably vanish from the face of the earth, which can provoke a response ranging from mild panic to outright psychotic hysteria. I’m not proud of this affliction, but must admit to finding comfort in the knowledge that virtually everyone I know tends to misplace their phone on a semi-regular basis – and that they too experience varying degrees of wild-eyed agitation until they track it down.

    I used to misplace my phone at least once a week. You know where it would often show up? Wedged in that crack between my car seat and the center consul. I kept a kebab skewer in my glove compartment at all times in order to poke it out of that dark, crumb-filled crevice. When a friend pointed out that the kebab skewer may be considered a deadly weapon, I realized it was time to address the situation. One day, as I mulled over the possibility of stuffing the car seat crevice with paper towels, fate intervened in the form of a Scosche catalog.

    Now, I can tell you, there were lots of really cool, award-winning products to get excited about in that Scosche catalog. Waterproof wireless speakers, headsets, all kinds of amazing car audio stuff, heart rate monitors, cables and chargers in lots of great colors.  But all I could see was the magicMOUNT system. It shined from the pages like a beacon of hope. Could I finally return my kebab skewer to the kitchen utensil drawer?

    Described as “An award-winning, innovative magnetic mounting system for conveniently mounting smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices to a wide array of surfaces,” I read that you can just hover your device near the magnetic surface of the magicMOUNT and it will instantly lock securely into place. I was also intrigued by the description of the “sleek, cradle-free design” that uses high-powered magnets to secure your devices anywhere you use them most.  For me it should have said “lose them the most” but either way, I was sold. There were lots to choose from, but I ended up selecting the powerMOUNT, which plugs into my car’s charger, allowing me to simultaneously charge my phone. And its “adjustable flex neck design” means it’s nice and bendy so it can easily be swiveled and adjusted for viewing. I must admit, I did squeal with delight the first time I felt that magnet grab onto my phone. And wow, does that thing have a good grip. To date, despite lots of stop-and-go downtown traffic and an accidental and unpleasantly lengthy off-road detour through a field that seemed to be infested with giant gophers, my trusty powerMOUNT has never failed me.

    So yes, I confess. I am now a Scosche magicMOUNT addict. We have some long road trips coming up, and I’m planning on getting two Scosche headrestMOUNTs to mount my kids’ tablets to the headrests for the trip. If you’ve ever had one of those double-screen DVD systems you’ll understand why this makes sense. No more wires for those little feet to get caught on and pull out. No more fighting over which movie to watch on the trip. Nope. Just two safely secured tablets and two wireless Bluetooth headsets. I’m also getting a couple of magicMOUNTs for the house. I can use them to mount my tablet while cooking in the kitchen, mount and display my phone in my office (yes, I’ve been known to lose it among the general clutter of my desk…) and I’m considering getting one for the bathroom just in case I ever get to soak in the tub long enough to listen to a whole song from start to finish. Did I mention that they’re ridiculously affordable? Well they are. So this year, as there’s a magicMOUNT for virtually every vehicle and surface you could think of, I’ll be buying a bunch of them as holiday gifts. Oh, and in case you were wondering, the kebab skewer has been safely returned to the utensil drawer and now only crumbs inhabit the car seat crevice.
