Core 360 Review

taiga_core360_4This is the the Caseco Core 360. They claim that it’s the smallest car mount but I will get into that later.

They came nicely packaged and it was also presented nicely. Inside the flap, there’s few features listed like 360 degrees joint and removable adhesive. Anyways, when you open the box, you are greeted with the user manual. Inside, it shows you the steps to install the car mount. But you don’t really need it since you just need common sense to install the car mount

Also they include two metal rings, which will be attached to the back of your phone, and they include an extra adhesive for the car mount itself.

taiga_core360_2Taking a look at the car mount, it’s extremely tiny. Compared to my palm, it really looks miniscule. They say that it’s the world’s smallest car mount and I don’t see why not it wouldn’t. But it’s built like a tank. It’s made completely out of metal and there is no cheap plastic to be seen. So it actually feels quite dense weighing at 18 grams.

taiga_core360_1So the way you attach it to your phone is by using neodymium magnets which is the metal rings. They include two, like I said before so you will have an extra one to use it later You simply peel off the paper cover on the metal plate and you stick it on to your phone or your case. I recommend doing it on the case, since it might damage your phone even though when you peel it off, it leaves no residue.

Then you simply just attach it to the corresponding part on the car mount.

They hold to each other extremely well. Even shaking the car mount won’t do anything to the phone whatsoever. They claim that they can be used with any device up to 1.3 pounds and that technically means you can even use it for your iPad.

taiga_core360_3The car mount is also rotatable full 360 degrees which is really awesome. You can position this in your car anyway you want, which I think is really useful and it’s one of the features that makes it stand out compared to the rest.

After that, you just remove the red plastic tab covering on the Core 360 adhesive backing. Then by holding it down for a few seconds, you just attach that to any place you desire. That’s basically it! It’s a really hassle free process like other car mounts

Also, you can remove the car mount and reuse it for a few more times before having to replace the adhesive, which is also a cool neat feature.

I don’t really drive yet, so it will be mainly used for my dad, but he says that it is really useful when you are driving since you can do hands free call, look at the map and so much more.

So, I actually had no complaints on this whatsoever, but it’s probably because it’s just a car mount. I mean, what can be a major drawback. Anyways, this product was actually really awesome.

The Perfect iPhone Car Accessories? CaseCo Core 360 & Power Beacon Review

Tech reviewer Mobile Reviews Eh has done a great review of our Core 360! From the article:

Today we’re going to review two car accessories made by CaseCo. A minimalistic car mount and a portable battery pack that you can plug into your car’s cigarette lighter. If you’ve been watching our channel for the last while, you’ll know that CaseCo sent us a big box of stuff and we’ve been pretty impressed with their products.

The car mount, the Core 360 is quite unique and offers a car mounting solution with minimal bulk. There are a couple of things that you’re going to have to deal with but generally it works really well and the Power Beacon, a portable charing/battery pack is actually quite useful and would be a perfect gift for any road warrior. Both of these accessories would be perfect for any road warrior.

Based on our time with these accessories, we give them two thumbs up. We’d give them number ratings but since we don’t have a baseline for car mounts and external battery packs yet, we’re just going to stick with our thumbs up rating system.


This is Why Everyone is Going Crazy about the Core 360 Universal Smartphone Mount

This is a wake up call friends: It is 23 times more likely for drivers to crash while texting and 4 times more likely for drivers to crash while talking. I know. Scary stuff, eh?

Core 360 parts

World’s Smallest Car Mount

Bulky mounts are now a thing of the past. The Core 360 smartphone mount allows you to free up your wind shield space. It’s smaller than a golf ball with a registered height of just 2.5 cm.

Secure Hold

The Core 360 features the strongest magnet you can find commercially — the neodymium magnet. With a neodymium magnet by your side, you’ll keep your phone safe and secure, preventing unwanted drops through rough terrain.

360 Rotation

The whole family can take advantage of the Core 360 as it comes with extra adhesives. This gives you the freedom to change mount location without the mess; freeing you from those oh-so-ugly residue stains.

The Talking Hat – Blu-Toque

We use technology to stay informed and connected. We use hats to keep us warm when we weather the elements. Now, and for the first time, the two worlds unite and borne is a product called the Blu-Toque. When Bluetooth technology was first introduced, it was mainly associated with transferring files between cell phones. Shortly after, Bluetooth earpieces became a must have item in our hands free world. Bluetooth speakers are now a popular item to give as a gift. The Blu-Toque will become the next ultimate give as a gift to a person who loves technology.

This innovative hat comes in five different colours and even offers the beanie version, which is the latest craze in fashion. You charge it via the included micro USB cable to your computer for just under three hours which yields six hours of continuous working time. The stand-by time is just as impressive at 60 hours. The coolest part about this hat is that it talks to you. Yes, it talks to you. There are two modules inside the hat positioned near your ears. One side has a speaker and the other side has the Bluetooth module. When you turn it on, a friendly non-intimidating female says “on”. Then when you pair it with another Bluetooth-enabled device, it says “connected”. This means that you can now take and make calls via your toque, your Blu-toque. Once paired with your cell phone, you are able to take calls and speak while you are driving, walking, jogging, skiing, etc. without fumbling for your phone or an earpiece. Wearing the Blu-Toque while driving is an experience in itself as the device will speak your directions when your GPS is on. You can stream music too. This feature is ideal if you are doing outdoor activities or maybe you are like me, a mom with two kids who love to hear their own music in the car.

The Blu-Toque is compatible with Apple and Android devices. The hat itself is made of a really nice, plush-feeling material that will definitely keep your head warm. The modules come out in case you need to wash your toque. There is a control option on the one side whereby you can play, pause, decrease and increase the volume.

My soul feels soothed because I have never liked wearing a Bluetooth earpiece yet I still want to talk and connect with people while driving or during my stroller walks, grocery shopping, or outdoors with my two kids. Bluetooth earpieces never fit well and I spent five times the cost of a Blu-Toque figuring that out. Now, I can talk and look cool while doing it in in red. If you are buying this as a gift, the person you gift it to will think of you each time they use it. Happy talking!

Low Battery Issues, eh?

The Power Beacon 3000 by Caseco is a must-have product if you run out of juice in the middle of the day on your cell phone. It’s a true 3-in-1 device and is the ultimate emergency gadget everyone with a cell phone should have.

To begin, it is your car charger. Pull out the adapter and insert it into your cigarette lighter in your car. Take the included micro USB cable and connect that to your phone. You are now charging your cell phone without having to spend any additional money on a car charger. Then, when you are out of your car, you can leave the Power Beacon in your purse (or bag, murse, pocket) and use it when needed because it has a built-in rechargeable battery. When you are running low on battery on your cell phone, you turn on your Power Beacon and use the included USB cable and connect it to your phone. It will charge my Samsung Galaxy S5 1.5 times. That’s over five hours of talk time so thank you Caseco. Now I know I can always take calls and have a conversation when needed.

Lastly, it has a built-in flashlight. This is great to use to light the way in front of you. My two-year-old does not like walking in the dark from the car to our house at night so I turn it on for her. Additionally, if we go for a walk in the evening after dinner, we turn on the rapid flash so cars can see us and know we are there. It’s pretty neat.

Since we use our phones for surfing, tweeting, texting, Instagraming, picture capturing and talking, the Power Beacon 3000 comes in handy if you have ever felt that stressful feeling of not having enough battery power.
