WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR

Do You Need a Wired or Wireless Headset? It depends on your needs. Drivers and people on-the-go will appreciate the convenience of going wireless, as they do not need to bother themselves with entangled wires or worry about wires getting in their way. However, if you are always on the move and have no access to a power supply, it is advisable to stick to wired headsets as you do not need to worry about them running out of power halfway through the day.

Is a Portable Battery Charger necessary? Mobile devices today come with many features and functions, such as GPS, video playback, video calls, gaming and web browsing. In addition, the trend of increasing display sizes and 4G LTE will mean that smartphones and tablets are likely to see shorter battery mileage. It is highly advisable to have a portable battery charger with you in the event that your phone runs low on battery and a quick charge of battery is what it takes to make the call or compose that important email.
