My Top Five Must Have iPhone Accessories

My Top Five Must Have iPhone Accessories


Being connected at all times is becoming more and more popular.  Kids are getting cell phones earlier than in previous years and with constant upgrades to technology it seems that we’re always in the market for something.  While having a cell phone is great you can’t forget about the accessories.  I’d like to share my top five must have iPhone accessories.  These are a few accessories that I own and can’t live without.  I was provided samples of some of the products listed below for review purposes.

Impact Shell - My Top Five Must Have iPhone Accessories

One of the most important things you need for your new cell phone is a durable case.  With the high price of phones it’s important to protect your investment, especially if you have children.  We’ve probably all been there before, our phones dropped and without proper protection it could end up broken and needing replacements.  My iPhone 5C is protected by a Impact Shell Clear Case from tech21.  Tech21 cases feature a patented D3O polymer, which locks up upon impact for ultimate protection, while also giving full access to all of a device’s ports and buttons.  I’ve loved my Impact Shell, with my three-year old toddler monster my phone is constantly getting tossed all around.  If anyone could test the durability of this case it would be him.  He’s thrown my phone down his grandmother’s stair quite a few times and my Impact Shell has kept it safe and secure.  This case offers protection from side and back impacts.  Tech21 also offers several other case options if you looking for something else to protect your phone.  They also offer cases for top android phones.  The Impact Shell retails for $34.99 and I highly recommend it if you’re worried about your phone dropping.

Impact Shield - My Top Five Must Have iPhone Accessories

Another very important accessory in my book is a good screen protector.  The last thing anyone wants it to scratch or crack their screens.  My case keeps my phone protected from drops and my screen protector keeps it from getting scratches and in some cases cracks.  Another benefit to using a screen protector is to prevent glare and make it possible to use your phone in the sun.  My phone has a Impact Shield with Anti-Glare screen protector from Tech21.  According to Tech21 this screen protector can protect against cracks and in their demo video they even show how it protects the phone by dropping an object directly onto the screen.

The Impact Shield features three layers of protection for your screen making it durable and stronger than regular screen protectors.  Check out this video below to see how the screen protector actually works.

Now I am not going to test the features of my screen protector by dropping a ball on it but I will say that it has been working great on my phone.  Tech21 offers screen protectors for all the top phones and the Impact Shield Screen Protector retails for $34.99 on their website.  It’s another great accessory for phones and it would make a great gift for anyone.

iLuv Glow In the Dark Earphones - My Top Five Must Have iPhone Accessories

Most phones usually come with headphones in the box, which is cool and can save you some money in regards to headphones.  Personally I have always used different headphones that the ones included in the box with my phones.  Good headphones are a must if you use your phones to listen to music, watch videos or take a phone call in the car.  Currently I am using the Neon Glow: Glow-In-The Dark High Performance Earphones from iLuv.  I like these headphones for a number of reasons.  The cord is flat on these headphones so it prevents tangling.  These headphones also has a microphone so you can take phone calls.  It also allows you to play music,pause and skip tracks.  These headphones are also compatible with both iPhone and Andriod.  My favorite feature is that it glows in the dark.  These earphones are perfect for people who run at night.  These fun and functional earphones retails for $24.99 and you can purchase them from the iLuv website along with other products for your iPhones, iPads, Samsung Galaxy and Kindle.

dual pin - My Top Five Must Have iPhone Accessories

Keeping your phones charged it a must and most people are charging more than one device.  My husband and I would always have a problem with charging in the car.  Our car charger at the time only allowed one of us to charge our phones so our way of deciding who got the charger was whomever was running their GPS.  Now we have the Universal DualPin Car Charger from iLuv in the car.  Not only can both of us charge our phones at the same time, the charger works with his Android charging cable and my iPhone lighting cable.  This charger works with just about any charging cable on the market, making it possible to stay connected while traveling in your car.  With the Universal DualPin no one has to fuss or flip coins over who gets the charger first.  The retail price of the charger is $19.99 and you can pre-order it on the iLuv website.

Luster External Battery - My Top Five Must Have iPhone Accessories

As a blogger I need to keep connected at all times.  Well I don’t need to but I like to be connected at all times.  Especially when I am traveling for an event.  There’s nothing worst than being out and your phone dies right when you need to make a phone call or update your status or take a great photo.  I stay connected with my Luster 3000mAh External Battery from RAVPower.  This is a small but very powerful charger.  I have used it to charge my phone and iPad fully and it still had power.  It come with a USB cable for easy charging.  This charger also has a very bright flash light that I have been using constantly since I got my charger to review.  Having that flash light feature is a great bonus because now I can easily search in my dark purse, under my bed, and in a dark closet, just to name a few places.  RAVPower offers a whole range of portable chargers to keep you charged at all times.  The Luster charger retails for $17.99 and you can purchase it on the RAVPower website.

traveler wall charger - My Top Five Must Have iPhone Accessories

As a bonus I wanted to add this Universal RockWall Traveler.  This charger is for the international traveler.  This wall charger comes with four adapters so you can charge your devices in the US, UK, Europe and Australia.  I love that you an also charge more than one device at a time so you don’t have to carry around multiple adapters.  This charger retails for $49.99 on the iLuv website.

These are my top five must have accessories for iPhone.  What’s your must have cell phone accessory?
