Now that the sun’s out and the temps are climbing high, it’s time to pack your bag for the beach! Before you grab your sunscreen, phone and sandals to throw in a bag, it’s important to think about not only how you’re going to protect yourself, but also your gadgets under those harmful UV rays. While they still have yet to create sunblock for phones, we’ve found some sand-safe solutions so you and your devices can sit back and relax under the sun.
Sun-resistant mobile pouch
While it may not be the prettiest looking pouch around, it definitely does the job right of protecting your phone from the sun’s harmful UV rays and extreme heat. Adapted from space technology, the PHOOZY capsule uses a similar material found in spacesuits to shield your device from harsh weather conditions, serves as a mobile lifejacket to float in water and cushion a fall from any heights. Just when you thought there was a problem, we’re happy to say that Houston – we’ve found a solution.
Solar powered charger
Between taking pictures of your sandcastles to streaming summertime anthems, your battery is bound to get burned – not literally though, don’t worry. Keep it powered from sunrise to sunset with a solar powered charger! Not only is this gadget-friendly to the environment, but it’s also perfectly portable to lay beside your towel without taking up too much room and slide easily inside your bag. As one of the more affordable picks in the market, you’ll be able to spend more on ice cream to keep you cool and less on replacement batteries.
What’s a trip to the beach without the hottest songs of the season playing in the background? Besides its multicolor flashing lights, we were wowed by this bluetooth speaker because of how it can be fully submerged in water without causing any damage! The 24-hour battery life and the ability to charge your other gadgets make this machine the perfect DJ for your beach party. Now the question is, how are you going to stream your favorite tunes? (Hint, take a look at the next item!)
Global SIM Card or Sticker
We understand the struggle behind finding the perfect soundtrack for your beach party, which is why it’s nice to have a whole library of songs on hand ready to play next. Using a speedy 4G LTE network, our Unlimited Data packages in 125+ countries let you stream all the best hits so everyone can enjoy their favorite jam.
GoPro HERO5 Black
If you’re looking for a way to capture and share your adventures, this GoPro HERO5 is here to save the day (pun intended). The durable camera jumps right into all the fun with you thanks to its waterproof feature, going places where your smartphone can’t. It even listens to voice commands so you can record your adventures handsfree. Once you’ve got your shot, you can upload it immediately to your smartphone to share as a “Quik Story”, with the help of our Global SIM Card or Sticker and show off to your friends and family!
Sand-free beach towel
Although we love the feeling of the sand in between our toes as much as you do, at the end of the day we like to leave the beach at the beach. That’s why this anti-sand towel is the last item to pack in our bag. The lightweight material makes it easy to carry after a full day by the shore and blow all the sand grit off like a breeze. The microfiber technology also allows it to dry in half the time of a normal towel. But don’t worry, just because it’s high-tech doesn’t mean it’s not available in colorful summer patterns we all love.
