The right electronics case means carrying fewer cables

Today’s mobile gadgets require a large number of accessories, but the right case can make all the difference.

With thousands of mobile devices and accessories on the market, choosing the right electronics case can seem daunting. A recent video from YouTuber Peter von Panda revealed that all cases are not created equal.

A hard sided electronics case versus the soft sided type

Among the first things that Peter von Panda pointed out in his review of the Mogix hard sided electronics case was that fewer cables were needed. The compact nature of the case allowed the reviewer to look at the cables he’d traditionally carried in his old soft neoprene case. He discovered that because he’d had a bigger case, he was carrying around several cables unnecessarily.

Therefore, he was required to carry fewer backup cables due to the confidence he had in the protection the mobile accessories case provided.

The Mogix electronics case also keeps cables organized and makes a great gift for travelers.

Peter von Panda demonstrated the clamshell-style design of the Mogix accessories case. He showed that there were two divided sides, each with a couple of mesh pouches. In this way, charger cables, ear buds, lightning cables, auto USB adapter, USB charging block can all be kept separated and visible for easy access.

Moreover, all those mobile accessories are able to fit in the Mogix case along with the reviewer’s portable battery pack. This allowed the reviewer to carry everything he needed without having to leave anything behind or carry extras in case of damage.

The Mogix electronics case is compact, solid, weatherproof and holds everything a person needs for travel, including cables, ear buds, and a portable phone charger or hard drive. This makes it an ideal gift for students, travelers, or anyone else who brings their smartphone or other mobile devices everywhere they go. With the holiday season rapidly approaching, it will also make a fantastic low-cost gift and a perfect stocking stuffer.

iOS 9 could save battery life but at the expense of performance

The struggles with demands for more time for every charge is forcing owners to have to make a choice.

The latest generations of the iPhone have been including an ever larger number of fancy features and capabilities, beyond the reach of the battery life to keep up in a way that consumers find to be ideal.

Now the iOS 9 could give iPhone users the choice to sacrifice some performance for a longer lasting device.

The idea behind the new Low Power mode in the iOS 9 upgrade is that battery life can be saved while using the features of the device, instead of having to stick to Airplane Mode or scramble to plug the device into a wall outlet. The drawback is that in exchange for the added juice, it compromises some of the device performance. These may not involve hugely important parts of performance, but it means that things will run more slowly and the picture won’t be at its top level.

That said, the changes will allow a user to keep their battery life going for up to 3 more hours.

Battery Life - iOS 9This is the first time that Apple has made a move like this. The Low Power mode will shut down the background activity and decrease the performance to help to squeeze up to three more hours out of the smartphone battery.

According to a number of leading tech rumor sites, such as Geekbench 3 and MacRumors when running the beta of iOS 9 on the iPhone 6 Plus, the single core processor test score was 1606 and the multicore test received 2897. That said, when running Low Power mode, the figures reduced by about 40 percent, bringing them to 1019 and 1751, respectively. The notes that were taken seemed to imply that it brings the speed of the device back to the days of the iPhone 5S, but that when it is between using your mobile device at a reduced speed or not using it at all, it is an easy choice.

Overall, it is more than likely that the up to three hours will be helpful, but that portable phone chargers will continue to be the key to the kind of battery life that iPhone users want. After all, the reason that many people purchased those devices, in the first place, is for their performance!
