Samsung Galaxy S5 Multi Charging Cable – Charge 3 micro USB items at once

aSamsung_Multi_Charging_CabYou didn’t know you needed this until now!

You might be asking what is a multi charging cable? We asked the very same thing when we heard about it.

It is a relatively simple principle.  On one end of a cable is a a standard USB connection.  On the other is 3, yes 3 micro USB connectors that split off from the main cable.

Simply connect the USB connector into a USB port on a computer or mains power adapter, then connect 1 or more of the micro USB connections into your micro USB powered equipment such as your smartphone, smartwatch and games controller.

The cable allows multiple charging of products, with the use of only one mains power adapter or USB port.

Many homes and offices are littered with charges for mobile products, but with this cable you can connect to just one socket but charge multiple devices and free up sockets for other equipment.

This is an official Samsung packaged and branded product.  It is available in Black or White colour options for £24.99.

Buy the Black multi charging cable here.

Qi Wireless Charging Receiver Card for Samsung Galaxy S5

S5_QI_Wireless_Charging_ReceiverThe Samsung Galaxy S5 is just about to hit the shop shelves at the time of writing this post.

One of the features some would say it lacks is wireless charging.

This can be added through a replacement back cover or case. However there are are couple of downsides.  The phone becomes physically thicker and they are expensive.

Of course the added positive is that the the back cover and case are official Samsung accessories.

If you are however looking for a more cost effective solution, then a QI wireless charging receiver card could be a great option.

The card sits under the standard back cover of the S5 and connects to the appropriate connectors under the case.

The receiver card does not affect the NFC or the thickness of the device as it is sat inside the body of the phone.

Once inserted, the receiver will work with other QI enabled products such as a wireless charging pad be it the Koolpad or the official Samsung pad.

The receiver card is due to be available from late April and can be ordered here for a price of £16.80 including VAT.

Clove’s top 10 smartphones of April 2014

April is always a big month with the previously announced devices arriving in shops and on the virtual shelves.

At the time of writing we are days away from the first stock arriving of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Sony Xperia Z2.

The HTC One M8 has just arrived in time to make it into this months list.  However, where will it stand in a months time?

Please do remember that this list is our top 10 based on our preferences, feelings, sales and customer feedback.  Others may have a very different opinion on what makes their top 10.

1Cat B15 front0. CAT B15

CAT might be a name you are familiar with if you have been past a building site.  If you work in the trade you are likely more familiar with it.

Focused primarily on heavy machinery, the brand have a range of accessories to cater for the needs of those in the building industry and the B15 is one such example.

This phone is capable of being dropped, knocked and submerged in water and still able to perform.

Larger than many phones, it will not be desirable to all but it is better suited than many.

the specs are not too bad really all told and the phone comes in both single and dual SIM options.  So you can have your personal and work phone on at the same time.

The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are the second generation of Smartwatch from the Korean firm, with the Neo offering the option to have a smartwatch without a built in camera.

The Gear Fit on the other hand is more glorified fitness band that tracks you hear rate but also pairs with your Samsung phone for things like music control, message and call logs.

To date we have been unable to confirm pricing and availability on these lines, but are pleased to be able to confirm this for you.

All 3 products are due in May and are available to pre-order now on the Clove website using the links below.
