I have had some great experiences with Ventev products before, and it began several years ago when I encountered them at a conference like CTIA or something. This is a company that makes some great accessories that can do just about anything. Today, I am going to be reviewing five products from them that were sent to me.
I’ll go ahead and talk about the Chargesync Alloy Apple Lightning Cable. There are several charging cables that you can buy from Ventev alone, and this one is for Apple devices and the one I got to review was 4 feet long.
I am told that this has “an ultra-sleek brushed aluminum housing and is braided with a high tensile wrap providing a premium finish and ‘no-fray’ durability”. The end result is a cable that feels very hard and tough, like a metal chain without the links.
It is pretty great, and it is available in eight colors for a price of $29.99 on the Ventev site.
I’ll start with the Dashport r1240 mini, which is made for a cigarette lighter. Okay, those that don’t smoke probably use that thing near the radio as a charger, and so do I. It is kind of interesting how we learned to adapt, right?
Anyway, the Ventev r1240 mini charger is able to give your car an extra USB port, and it will charge up a 2.4A output. This allows for charging a smartphone or tablet at its most fast rate.
You should be able to purchase this at Ventev’s website for a price of $24.99.
So let’s talk about the Powercell 3015+ Battery Charger, which is a portable battery and wall charger.
It isn’t anything that we haven’t seen before, and this is one of those types that have one of those retractable prongs so you can just plug it into the wall. What makes this really interesting is that instead of having 4 little lights to indicate how much power it has. Instead, it has a percentage on the side, so I will give them points for being different.
This mobile battery can deliver 12.5 hours of extra talk time, and it costs about $39.99 on the Ventev site.
As for the Ventev Minipro Window Dashmount, this is one of those things that allows you to attach your smartphone to your windshield.
How does it do that? Well, it has one of those suction cup things where you push a handle down, and it will stick there. I’m sure that this thing has a proper name, but I’ll be darned if I know what it is.
Anyway, the suction-cup thingy is attached to a claw. This claw is spring loaded so it can open up and you can plant the smartphone in it. You can then use the phone’s map function safer on the road, and you can adjust the angle thanks to a ball-in-socket functionality.
This can be purchased on the Ventev site for about $24.99.
Okay, it is time to write about the last product, the Ventev wallport r2240 charger. I’m not certain how to describe it other than a universal dual output USB port.
So yeah, you have not one, but two ports that you can use on a typical outlet. And yes, it can charge two devices at the fastest possible rate, and this includes tablets.
Yeah, I’m not certain what else I can say about this. I mean, I had to review it because it was sent to me. Okay, that is the first and last time that I will say that about any product that I am reviewing.
Anyway, all five of these products would make great stocking stuffers or gifts, and this one is available on the Ventev site for $29.99.
