Techy Dad Gift Tue, 13 Jun 2017 15:15:25 +0000 Techy Dad Gift Techy Dad Gift KTVX ABC 4 Salt Lake City >> welcome back, everyone, it is tech time tuesday with christopher and we're talking about father's day. and you brought some really great gift options. >> yeah, it is actually great that we have father's day coming up and not today, right. cuz you can still buy it. i'm a procrastinator. now you have four days, five days, whatever it is, two day thrifery so are you good. >> we got this. >> and i just wanted to bring a couple of things that are kind of fun but not too expensive, right? let's start off with the battery. the battery we talked about batteries before. this one is actually really cool. and it is actually is a magnetic case to the mofi case that goes on your phone. >> say that one more time, only slower. >> so it is a magnetic battery to go on the magnetic case that-- makes. >> so you have to have the case and then this attaches to the case. >> yes. >> because isn't mofi a built-in battery case. >> you can, it does make they call them-- bus packs cases that plug into the phone and can charge the phone at the same time thasm is one brand that they make. >> this is different. >> they also make the batteries that are actually power backs. they make a duo usb pack that you can actually buy as well. one thing to keep in mind when are you buying batteries if you don't want the mofi or whatever is the milli amp hours so at the back it says 4,000 milli amp hours, that is how long the battery is going to last or how much it will charge. >> so please explain there are so many portable battery charger things. >> so the higher the number, this one is 4,000, it's going to give you probably a full charge and a half of the bigger phone. >> okay. >> 6,000 that will give you more, 8,000 that will give you more, they make them 10 to 20,000. >> and the higher you go the more. >> a bit more expensive, the bigger the battery. the other thing is how fast it charges, how many amps it puts out. so this one puts out 2.1 amps, that is a quick charge. so it will charge your phone pretty fast. >> and you want that. >> you want that. >> because i find it is interesting, you can get these little portable chargers and they're like 12.99, but are they even with it. >> they give you about half power on your phone. the benefit is you have battery there so you can bump up your phone if you are running out. >> okay, cool. >> the next thing is the google chrome cast, do you know what that is. >> no, tell me. >> this is actually a device that you can, this is an hdmi connector here. you can plug that into your tv, your display and then you can stream stuff from your phone or computer to your tv. >> oh. >> so photos, music, other things like that. >> youtube and stuff. >> this actually has-- youtube, netflix, all of the stuff you would get on an apple tv or amazon fire stick, it would do the same thing as that. >> how much is this. >> this one, there are two versions, one that is 39, one that is 59. the 589 version actually comes with a few extra features, you can stream in 4k instead of yus 1080p which is hdmi or hd. but they are both hd footage, both come with the netflix, hulu, not amazon but all of the other services. >> that would be cool for my boyfriend mike because he records his golf swings and he can put it up on the big tv. >> that's a dood. >> also for feater parties you can stream stuff to the tv which makes it fun. >> this one is actually one of my favorites, this is the monster hot shot. and this feature is a speaker. and it is really small but the power in that is enough to where if it was on the table and playing, the base would actually make it walk on the table. >> what? >> yeah, it's actually pretty cool. the other thing i like about this is this one actually has an ux il ree input on the bottom there. you can actually take a headphone cable and just plug it in, rather than go through bluetooth. so if you are having bluetooth problems you can side step that and go to the auxiliary port. >> how much is this guy. >> these average, the retail price is 39. i found them on amazon for 25, somewhere in there. so it is a really affordable thing to throw in and it is great to have in the car or take camping, if you want that little boost of sound, you can totally do that. >> of all three of these things, what would you want the most. >> yes. >> you want all of them. >> exactly. >> and you can do that. >> yep. >> where do you find these. >> later today i will post a blog on my post that will have links to all of them. but you can get them on amazon, best buy, wal-mart, those kind of things. >> thank you. >> one less thing to do this week. follow christopher on tech life thank you for all this good information. bri, do you
