BlueLounge Product Review: Posto and Products to Manage Your Cables

With all the technology we have to deal with these days, there is an inevitable mess of cables. BlueLounge is a company that creates gadgets to help manage that mess. We have the opportunity to review some of those items today.

BlueLounge Posto

This device is a stand to hang your headphones on. With dimensions of 4.25 x 4.25 x 9.6 in, Posto will give you a place to store headphones and reduce clutter on your desk. It comes in black or white, and will accommodate all sizes of headphones.

The headrest is rubberized- made to form to the headphones. The base is a sturdy aluminum. It looks very classy. You can purchase a base of your own for $19.99.

 

BlueLounge CableDrop

Discouraged by cables everywhere? This product comes in a mini size for little cables like MicroUSB and Apple Lightning connectors. They also come in a regular size for larger cords. The sticky back is perfect for sticking to desks, walls. People even use them in their bathrooms!

They come in many color choices- black, white, bright,  and muted. You get six CableDrops in a package. If you purchase the mini version, there are 9 in the package. They both cost $9.95. Their plastic build is firm, but somewhat flexible. The adhesive backing eventually becomes permanent over time, so you should take precautions when trying to remove them.

BlueLounge Cableyoyo

We’ve reviewed similar management systems for earbuds and their cables. This system is unique in that it has a magnetic center that holds the earbuds. You could also store lightning cables in it. It’s also made of silicon- rather than the hard plastic ones we’ve reviewed in the past. There are different options of colors, too! There are ones in Dark Grey, Light Grey, Lime Green, Black with a Gold magnet and Blue with a Gold magnet. These handy gadgets are only $9.95 and make a great gift!

The last BlueLounge product we have to review is the CableClip. As you can see, this is another gadget to keep your cords tangle-free. This is great, because if you’ve ever thrown cords into your backpack, you know that they often don’t come out so well. For $9.95, you can buy a package of 2 large, 4 medium, or 6 small clips.

The large ones work great for thick power cords and network cables. Medium ones will work well for USB and data cords, small power cords, audio cords and phone cables. The small ones are ideal for  earbuds, small data cables and charger cords.

We’d like to thank BlueLounge for sending us these great products to review at no charge. Our opinion is unbiased and fair, and no other compensation has been paid to influence our reviews.

Black Friday Holiday Gift Guide 2017

Well, Black Friday seems to come earlier every year, and so I felt that I had to write this on Thanksgiving. If you are one of those that believes he/she can get his/her shopping done early, then here is some advice, particularly for those who go online.

How about Headphones?

Let’s start with Beyerdynamic’s DT 770 Studio.

You might want to get some when you sleep with the Soft-Tones Pillow Speaker. You can also try the SleepPhones by Acoustic Sheep.

There are models that are wired and wireless from ZAGG’s iFrogz.

You can get some great earbuds from 1More with the Dual Driver LTNG ANC In-Ear Headphones.

Need a pair of Bluetooth earbuds?

I would suggest the Jabra Elite 25e for wired action. For wireless action, check out the New Elite Sport, also from Jabra.

The SleepPhones have a wireless version.

Oh, did I mention the iHome Fit (iB71), because that exists too.

Then there is the MOXYO Mission Wireless Earbuds.

There’s a Computer Accessory for you!

I recommend the IOGEAR Compact USB-C Docking Station with PD Pass-Thru and the Thunderbolt 3 to Dual 4K DisplayPort Adapter.

Then there is the OWC Thunderbolt Dock 3.

J5Create has several types that you can read about here and here.

You should see what Accell is making.

Need a Case for your Smartphone/Tablet?

UAG has some great ones like the iPhone 8/7 like the Monarch and PYLO, as well as the iPhone X.

Go with brands like Patchworks!

Now Toast gives you some good cover as well!

Catalyst also has several of them for the iPhone X and Apple Watch.

There are also some great ones from X-Doria. This might not be a case, but I recommend Armpocket for when you take your phone out on the road.

Oh, you should also get yourself a screen protector, like the type made by Invisible Shield.

Then there are the ones from Nomad.

There are also some from Bodyguardz.

If you want a Folio case for your iPad, check out these two from ZAGG.

Looking for a gift for a gamer?

There is the Crusher Wireless from Skullcandy.

There is the Custom Game for Beyerdynamic. Then there is always the SteelSeries Rival 110.

There is also the Logitech G433, a 7.1 Wired Surround Gaming Headset.

Chargers are always needed!

There are ChargeHub X3 and X5.

It is similar to the Nomad 3-Port Hub, Powerpack, and the Charging Cables.

Check out the RapidX DualX and X5 Rapid Car Charger.

Then there is the myCharge AdventureUltra and AdventureMax.

You can also go solar with the PowerKeep 12 and 36, as well as the Powerkeep Wanderer.

The M-EDGE Packlight, Tech Sackpack, and 8000 mAh Power Bank are also worth it.

Then there is the Bobine Flexible iPhone Dock.

Need to Boost your phones’ reception?

I would recommend the Wilson Drive Sleek Signal Booster for cars.

How about a Bluetooth speaker?

There is the iHome iBT77 Speaker as well as the iBT374. Then there is the iAVS1 for the Amazon Echo Dot. There is also the iPLWBT5 for the Apple Watch and your smartphone.

No problem. Get the SmartHalo.

Want something for the kitchen?

Look no further than the Gourmia GTA1500 Digital Electric Air Fryer, Griller, and Roaster.
