Five Must-have Accessories for Photographers

The best camera for capturing compelling photos, emotions and spontaneous events is the one that you carry with you. Fortunately, these days camera phones deliver spectacular imagery, vibrant color palettes and quality pictures, allowing amateur and professional photographers alike to capture those pivotal moments at all times. Obviously there are tons of professional and high quality cameras out there that produce stunning photos, there are also some exceptional accessories available that can make a simple camera phone yield surprisingly similar results.

The right accessories can aid in common problems such as shutter lag, color proportions and blurriness, among others. So, no matter how advanced of a photographer you may be, if you enjoy taking pictures conveniently with your phone’s camera, consider investing in a few of the following accessories to take your images to the next level.

LED Continuous Light Panel

Shed a little light on your subject because the better lit your scene, the clearer your images will be. A handy light panel brightens the subject with superior-quality LED lighting that delivers more natural colors than even direct sunlight. Camera flashes cause strange glares, red eye, disfiguring shadows and unwanted reflections, but LED lighting provides a natural, appealing atmosphere for your finest shots. You can dim the lights to create ideal lighting to enhance your subject and use the panel as emergency flashlight while capturing images during a power blackout.

Extended Photo Lens

Extended photo lenses for your smartphone or tablet device provide genuine optical zoom and eliminate blurred long-distance and pixelated images. Most lenses come with mini tripods that you can use to stabilize your camera and deliver an even better quality for your scenic and posed shots.

Camera Connection Kit

You can choose among five different ports to transfer your data, and the lightweight kit is easy to carry with you. If recording audio or listening to a headset, most people prefer USB audio interfaces, but Apple products don’t have USB ports. Use the camera connection kit to transfer your data, plug USB devices into your iPad and sync your photos without starting your camera or accessing a laptop or PC.

Wireless Shutter Release Remote

Combine the features of a remote-control unit and camera without cables. Some models come with separate automatic-focus and shutter-trigger controls and multiple infrared channels to reduce radio interference, which is particularly useful when other photographers are shooting in the same area and generating overlapping signals. Choose a compact model that fits in your hand for traveling convenience.

Digital Photo Frame

Receive pictures on your frame by creating a dedicated email address for the device. Digital frames allow you to store more images, share with friends, and view your shots in greater detail; in real time.


Wild and Crazy Chargers

cell phone chargersFor many people, a cell phone is more than an accessory; rather it’s a necessity to everyday life.  However, these devices can run out of battery and you may not always be in an opportune location where access to a charger or an outlet is readily available…say, camping in the wilderness. Fortunately, today’s technology wizards have invented handy cell phone chargers that help guarantee your cell phone sustains full charge at all times. Although a bit unusual, these ingenious chargers could certainly come in handy.

Power Pocket Cell Phone Chargers

camping with cell phoneTaking a hiking trip in the mountains? Spending the weekend in a tent on the beach? Adventures like these often mean a bit of escape from reality, particularly from access to electricity. But these days, most people can’t last that long without their cell phone. So, to make sure you have a fully functional phone no matter where your adventure takes you, the power pocket has been created. With its unique thermocouple technology, the Power Pocket uses thermoelectric material to charge your valuable devices. Basically, the varying temperatures of the material, combined with body heat, create voltage and current, making electrical power. The Power Pocket charger can be sown on a sleeping bag so you can slumber beneath the trees while knowing you will wake up to a fully charged phone. If instead you plan on trekking through the woods and require full charge at all times, the manufacturer also adds the charging pocket to clothing.

The Hand Crank Cell Phone Chargers

hiking with cell phoneWant to kill two birds with one stone – why not get some exercise while charging your cell phone? To get an arm workout while charging your cell phone, purchase a hand-cranking device. The unit is connected to a backup battery that receives its power from the power you generate with your cranking abilities. If you crank the device for one minute, then you will produce enough power to send several text messages or make a quick phone call. Maybe not the most efficient charging device out there, this is definitely one you should consider adding to your emergency car kit.

Wind and Solar Cell Phone Chargers

One of today’s craziest charging technologies features a bicycle helmet that stores the wind and solar energy that you accumulate while riding a bike. The helmet possesses a small fan to collect the wind’s energy as well as solar cells to acquire energy from the sun. According to the developers, a 40-minute bicycle ride produces enough power to fully charge your cell phone.

Foot Pump Chargers

The foot pump charger is similar to the hand crank unit as it requires physical effort to create energy. The unit features a turbine that develops electricity from the airflow produced by the pumping action. The item is especially handy for outdoor excursions, such as camping, because it is lightweight and easy to transport.

Fuel Cell Phone Chargers

A fuel cell charger is a small, portable unit that you can take with you for cell phone charging emergencies. The device needs a fuel cell and one spoonful of water to develop power. Specifically, the source uses an advanced electro-chemical process to function. The charger also stores power. This innovative charger is another great option to have in case of emergencies.

With one of these nontraditional cell phone chargers, you can avoid the inconvenience of a dead cell phone battery, no matter where you are. Furthermore, many of the unique options are environmentally friendly while some can even help you improve your health.

Overcharging Your Cell Phone: Fact or Fiction?

The idea that a cell phone battery can be overcharged is bandied about quite a lot, and people are often warned not to keep their smartphones plugged in overnight. It is said that doing so can reduce its life, which may result in having to replace the cell phone battery prematurely. As common as this advice may be, however, it’s not entirely accurate. In reality, it’s far better to charge your cell phone frequently.

battery chargeLithium-Ion Batteries

The vast majority of cell phone batteries are of the lithium-ion variety. The idea that they shouldn’t be overcharged is rampant because people don’t realize that they’re dealing with different types of batteries. There are, indeed, certain types of batteries that shouldn’t be overcharged. Some should even be allowed to discharge completely on a regular basis. However, this is not the case with lithium-ion cell phone batteries.

Avoid Full Discharges

While it’s technically okay to allow a cell phone battery to discharge, or run out of juice completely every now and then, it’s best to try to avoid it in general. Things happen, of course, and completely discharging a cell phone battery is sometimes unavoidable. Nevertheless, there is no need or benefit in deliberately discharging a lithium-ion battery all the way.

Charge Frequently Between Usescell phone car charger

When it comes to cell phone batteries, the best rule of thumb is to charge them whenever the opportunity arises. While sitting at a computer, for instance, keep it plugged in. Keep a charger in the car and keep the phone plugged in while driving. The only exception to these steps would be if the cell phone battery is already at full capacity. Keeping it almost constantly charging while it is already in a state of full charge can be detrimental. However, it is still far less damaging than allowing it to discharge fully on a regular basis.

Avoid High Temperatures and Full Charges at All Costs

Basically, you should try to keep your cell phone battery as charged as possible but stop charging it when it achieves a full charge. It’s okay to charge it several times throughout the day to keep it highly charged, as long as you avoid allowing it to discharge it all the way. The absolute worst thing you can do is to expose a fully charged cell phone battery to high temperatures for extended periods of time. It’s bad to bare these batteries to high temperatures in general, but the consequences can be a lot more severe when they are fully charged.

cell phone chargingOvernight Charging

Like many people, you may charge your phone overnight. If you were to listen to the conventional wisdom saying that it’s bad to overcharge your phone, you may consider rethinking the nightly recharge. As noted earlier, keeping a phone perpetually in a fully charged state can be harmful to your battery’s health, which may sound a bit contradictory when we now state that charging a phone battery overnight is perfectly okay. The main concern with leaving a battery plugged in when it is already at 100% is that it is more prone to overheating. However, the majority of the time, heat is not an issue and  leaving your device plugged in is acceptable because, truth be told, it will not overcharge. Cell phones recognize when the battery is at full capacity and will stop charging. Ultimately, keeping your phone fully charged is far better than allowing it to discharge all the way too often.

Interesting, Unique and Just Plain Bizarre Cell Phone Accessories

Have you ever wanted to make a statement with your cell phone? We’ve compiled five of the more…shall we say, “unconventional,” cell phone accessories that are sure to make you stand out in a crowd. Whether these accouterments are practical or not, they certainly are quite interesting, if not outright bizarre. However, if you are looking to a add unique flair to your cell phone, consider investing in one of these interesting items.

1) Payphone Handset


If you long for the days of clunky payphones (do these people exist??), you will be delighted to learn that there are payphone handsets available for purchase that can be plugged into the side of your cell phone. The handset, which comes in a variety of colors for extra pizzazz, is designed to resemble the payphones that used to line the streets of America. With the handset in place, you can definitely guarantee stares from passerbies as you bring back this long forgotten object.

2) Cell Phone Sweatshirt

For a truly unnecessary addition to your cellphone, you might ponder buying a cell phone carrying case that is designed to resemble a sweatshirt, yes, a sweatshirt. The fabric of the case is made of denim, so you can sleep well knowing your cell phone will be kept warm and toasty during the cold hours of the night. The miniature sweatshirt even comes with tiny sleeves for the full effect. Be careful though, friends might begin to wonder if you’ve lost your mind!

3) Flashing Bracelets

When you’re involved in an activity that calls for complete silence, you probably set your cell phone on silent mode. But chances are, you find yourself checking the phone every few minutes to see if you have missed a call or text. If this sounds familiar, well, here’s a solution for you: alert bracelets. Designed to fit snugly around the wrist, these ostentatious bracelets will flash whenever there is an incoming call. Although somewhat of a interesting idea, we think that the flashing disturbances could potentially be more interrupting than a ringtone.

4) Phone Windshield Wipers

If you’ve ever been frustrated with the dust and fingerprints that collect on the front of your iPhone, you could consider opting for a miniature windshield wiper set that will faithfully clean the glass at regular intervals. The single-blade wiper, which is made from soft rubber, is anchored to the bottom of the screen and repeatedly swings in an arching motion so that every square inch of the glass is made free of dirt. For individuals who insist on cleanliness for all of their electronic devices, this is a strange, but rather fun option.

5) TV Hat

The TV Hat is a product that allows you to watch videos by strapping an opaque device to your head. The contraption is compatible with most cell phones and allows for a covert movie-watching experience. The company indicates that the TV Hat can be taken on camping trips, road trips and plane flights. One of the silliest looking accessories we came across, you might actually consider in investing in one if you enjoy a disruption-free movie watching experience, in complete isolation.

If you are ultimately looking for something that will turn heads and create a bit of commotion, there are plenty of bizarre cell phone accessories out there, guaranteed to do just so.

Fix Broken Touch Screen Yourself

For a while I was walking around with a broken phone screen until I decided enough was enough. My phone was still usable, but the screen was hard to read. I didn’t feel it was worth the money to get the screen fixed for nearly the price of getting a brand new phone. There were a few options out there. For instance some people send their phones for repairs to outside companies that claim to fix it for less than the original company’s repair price, however, many are still expensive and some have horrible reputations. In general there are some things to be aware of when sending a phone off to an unknown company. There are some fraudulent companies out there that take your phone and don’t send it back or claim it was lost in the mail, some have expensive parts inside the phone replaced for refurbished parts, or claim you need more repairs than you actually do. I suggest you know what company you are dealing with before trusting your phone to anyone.

The best option you have out there is to buy a do-it-yourself kit and replace it yourself in no time. It is cheaper, you don’t have to take any risks sending your phone away, and you will learn a thing or two about technology. I personally have very little, if any experience when it comes to technology (I confess, I even had to google the word “Digitizer”, which is the replacement screen word). Bracing myself, I gathered my broken phone, the replacement digitizer, and a tool kit and sat myself in front of the computer. Then, I found a useful YouTube tutorial and followed the step by step directions and had my phone looking as good as new within 30 minutes!

You can get amazing deals on the Digitizer screen replacement kits on Keep in mind though, that screen digitizers aren’t only for phones. There are digitizers for tablets, laptops, gameboys and pretty much any device that has a touch screen.

Most people have never heard of digitizer screens. If you haven’t, now you have.You have no excuses to walk around with that embarrassing cracked screen anymore! Now go get that fixed!

One Of The Best Ways To Get The Cellphone Accessories You Want At A Price You Can Afford!

I think most of us have been through our fair share of cellphone accessories and cell phone chargers. Unfortunately, most of these guys break at the very worst moment they could, a time in which you usually need the money for something else.

Should you just splurge at that store you saw on your way home and get the charger? I wouldn’t!

Need a new Cellphone Accessory? Have you tried looking Online?

When it comes to shopping I do believe, or rather know that a majority of the people choose to shop online. There is good reason behind this actually, once you get experienced with this kind of shopping, especially when it comes to electronics and technological products like cellphone accessories and cell phone chargers.
