Gadgets Worth Checking out this Month

At Altair Electronics we have an array of products and gadgets. Cables, chargers, cases- you name it, we've got it. Here's a list of some of our favourite gadgets from April. 

Mantis Desk Stand for iPad

How does it work?

The POS app and iPad have been adopted by plenty of businesses in the last few years. The Mantis Desk Stand mounts the iPad to any surface, keeping it secure and functional. The Mantis Desk Stand glides into any horizontal or vertical position with the lightest touch, making it easy to adjust. These sleek mounts aren't only for iPads either. There are various styles, including wall mounts for TVs and monitors. 


What do we use it for? 

Our boss, Mark, uses this on his boat. When his boat rocks, the iPad stays secure in one place. Brilliant! 


Belkin Lighting Audio and Charge RockStar

How does it work?

The latest models of iPhones don't have an audio jack, making it next to impossible to listen to your music while charging your phone. The Belkin Lighting Audio and Charge RockStar solves that problem. This adapter plugs directly into your iPhone jack with two lighting ports on the opposite end of the adapter. One in a charging port, and the other is an audio jack to plug in headphones or an aux cord.


What do we use it for? 

Our staff uses this gadget on long drives to listen to music with an aux cord and charge our iPhone at the same time. This gadget is definitely a favourite at Altair. 


Ultra Fit USB 3.0 Flash Drive

How does it work?

This ultra-small drive provides extra storage for your laptop or computer so you don't have to buy more ram or cart around a big hard drive. You can transfer a full-length movie from one device to another in less than 30 seconds. That's 15 times faster than USB 2.0 drives. All of the data stored on this flash drive comes with a password-protected private folder too, so even if you lose it your data will still be protected. 


What do we use it for? 

Our staff uses the Ultra Fit USB 3.0 flash drive on business trips. This way we have access to larger files at all times but our laptops still run at top-speed because they're not crowded with files.
