1: The suction smartphone case

WAYLLY iPhone case
2980 yen($26 USD)

This case is made with a small “Nano Suction” material. When pressed against a flat surface it behaves like a vacuum and sticks itself to the surface. You can use this on metals, glasses and other type of flat surfaces. You can also stick it in on bathroom tiles and watch a movie.

PS: Sometimes, the grip might loosen and the smartphone might fall.

2: Solar powered outdoor charger

Solar Powered Mobile Phone Charger
2888 yen($26.07 USD)

With a huge capacity of 24000mAh, one can easily charge an iPhone 6, eight times with this charger. It has 3 USB ports and three devices can be charged simultaneously. It’s perfect for the outdoors, because of its solar powered panels.

Unfortunately, charging from the solar powered charge slows down the charging speed. My impression was that this charger best be used in emergencies only.

3: Speech translation in seconds without an internet connection
