Olloclip Telephoto Lens iPhone Mobile Studio

INCE our review of the Olloclip 3-in-1 lens system (archives/issue_109/products-109.htm) we have seen more products from the company that strives to give you "the ability to use the iPhone to capture and share what was previously impossible."

Those geniuses have come forth with another lens system that fits in the palm of your hand. Itís the Olloclip Telephoto Lens for the iPhone 5, iPhone 4/4S, iPod Touch 4th and 5th generation.

With a 2X optical magnification, you get twice as close to your subject. It comes in a precision-ground glass and aluminum body.

In addition you get a circular polarizing lens (CPL) to capture amazing colors while reducing glare and reflections, allowing for more professional results. The CPL can also be used with the fisheye lens in the 3-in-1system.

The telephoto lens costs $99.99 at https://www.olloclip.com/order/.

Olloclip Quick-Flip Case turns your iPhone into a virtual mobile photo studio. This is designed for anyone who wants to keep the iPhone protected in a hard case while using the 3-in-1 lens for shooting videos and photos, said Olloclip CEO/founder Patrick OíNeill.

A corner of the Quick-Flip Case turns up to allow you to mount an Olloclip lens. This rotating corner serves as a shutter release that presses the volume up (+) button the iPhone to capture a shot. Included is a Pro-Photo Adaptor that has two standard tripod mounts and a cold shoe to attach video lights or microphones. Price $49.99.

Hands-Free Talking

Mobio GripLetís face it. Drivers still phone and text in the car. Itís what you do if you have a mobile device. So protect yourself with Mobio Go. Itís a low-profile car mount for your phone or tablet. Itís always in position to talk hands free, make and take a call, read a map or stream music. So why hold a phoneóand risk the wrath of a state trooper or (gulp) the angel of deathówhen you can have Mobio Go in your car.

There is also Mobio Grip, with magnetic technology, to enable you to hold your device in one hand while tapping or scrolling with the other, or sipping a latte. Very convenient. Mobio Go is $34.95 at hellomobio.com.

Duracell Powermat Wireless Charging

OWERMAT was the first company to popularize the idea of charging mobile devices through inductive, or wireless, charging. Being familiar with Powermat, the Duracell Powermat
24-Hour Power System
didnít prove to be too much of a shocker. That's because it isn't a huge leap forward in terms of functionality or overall design. Just like the Powermat products before it, this one primarily consists of a flat and compact rectangular charging pad with smoothly curved corners.

The new gadget promises to provide just what its name suggests. The first Powermat product under the venerable Duracell brand, the 24-Hour Power System indeed serves up wireless charging plus a backup battery to keep phones from dying when you're out on the town.

Place a Powermat-equipped phone on the mat and youíll feel a strong magnetic tug that's hard to ignore. This pull guides you down to connect the device with the mat with a solid thunk. Nice. $99.99.
