Review: Lifedge “Ultimate Cable”

Lifedge, the company who made the absolutely awesome waterproof iPhone case, are back, and this time with an accessory that anyone who wants to keep their phone charged when out and about in potentially wet circumstances – a rugged lightning cable, or rather the “ultimate” cable!  Why might you want a rugged cable I hear you

Cable Ski at Center Parcs

One of the activities I pre-booked for our last break in Center Parcs (read my hints and tips post here) was Cable Ski. I’d seen it in action when we were there a couple of years ago but due to no slots being available (it’s always best to book activities like that before you go),

Warm Winter Woolies

I know we’re getting some sunshine right now but if you’re anything like me you know the leaves are falling it’s only a matter of time before winter is here. I’ve mentioned before over on twitter how I’m loving the cable knit trend at the moment. Next have got this one that caught my attention

Powermat for iPhone

I was lucky enough to recently win a Powermat thanks to a competition run on Twitter by Powermat in the UK.  I’ve been using it for a little while now and I thought it was about time I brought my thoughts to the readers of Splodz Blogz. I was sent the Complete System for iPhone4,
