with these Awesome Gadgets!
By Kyzia Maramara
We know you’re itching to get out of the city and give your barkada/family ‘drawings’ some color. Go ahead and seize the season, but don’t forget to bring your summer essentials! In case you might need a few items to help get you #SummerReady, we’ve listed awesome gadgets and must-haves for your next trip.
If there’s ever a gadget that you shouldn’t leave home without (aside from your phone), it’s a powerbank. Powerbanks are reliable energy packs to have during trips when you’re not sure how long it’ll take before you reach charging stations. It’s useful even in the city during brown outs, or when you forget your charger!
Features: Jaguar Powerbank is one of the most reliable products you’ll ever use. Its 10,050 mAh capacity is cased in a portable palm-sized gadget with dual ports so you can charge two gadgets at the same time. It also allows you to charge your phone multiple times. Jaguar Powerbank also has its built-in flashlight with three levels of brightness you can easily adjust. Light up a tent, a path, or even use it as a light box for close-up photo shoots!
The Verdict: It’s a handy device to have at hand and definitely worth your money! If you want a more heavy-duty powerbank, check out Jaguar Electronic’s other products here.
