In the past few weeks, there are typhoons and floods that caused brownouts in many area, damage to infrastructure, agriculture and to our homes. I always have my laptop and phone in fully charged when there is electricity supply rotation. There are some cases that you will get stranded in your office or anywhere because of heavy rains and floods that’s why I’m planning to buy something useful this rainy season.
The first thing that came up to my mind is a waterproof smartphone like Xperia Z1 compact, a high-end smartphone with very nice camera features and underwater capabilities. This is a smaller version of Xperia Z1 with same features and specs but more fit to the hand and easy to hold. If you have plan to upgrade your phone, try to ckeck the features of Xperia wateproof phones that will make you less worry of water splash and spill.
I started to use powerbank last year and I’m planing to upgrade to a new one with 9,000 to 13,000mAh. During brownout, some of us plug our mobile or tablet to laptop to charge it but that will drain your laptop battery. If you have a powerbank that you can carry anytime and anywhere, you have no worries of draining your battery in calls, messaging, surfing and gaming. Powerbank can be found anywhere in malls, Divisoria, Quiapo and also in online stores like Lazada PH, its available from 500mAh to 25,000mAh.
This Smartwatch from Sony can be used in any weather and be immersed in water. The battery will last up to 7days for minimum usage even if the watch display in On. There are multiple apps that can be install in this little device like health and fitness apps, social networking and imaging. What I really like about this watch is, you can read message directly to your watch without the hassle of pulling out your phone from your pocket or bag when you are on a bus or train. It can also serve as a remote for music handling.
