I’ve been using the bubblescope on and off for a year now and I still struggle to make a regular uses of it, not that I don’t like it, it’s just, well it’s just so awkward to share the pictures or videos taken with it.
above you see what you get in the packaging with the case already fitted to my iPhone 5. A nice little package with an easy to use design and a little pouch to carry the business end of the device in.
The pictures produced are a little fuzzy in places and a little out of focus in other places making it lose credibility straight away.
The most annoying part I suppose is to share the photos you need to set up an account on bubblepix.com then add the unique code from your device packaging. Once you have an account you can then see other peoples bubbles and upload your own. Then to share them you share the link and affixed image that unless your recipients have the app they cannot rotate the picture on a handheld device so need to go to the website via a desktop or laptop machine.
So with all this in mind I haven’t actually uploaded many to the site. Here’s one of my better ones.
So with all this in mind the device itself is “ok” it’s the sharing side of things that make it a little cumbersome. Current pricing on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com. In summary for me it belongs in the just for fun bracket.
It has been a whole week now since I received this package so I immediately filmed the in car footage from the above video and after the initial shock of the iPad Air 64GB not charging when first plugged in it turns out, after a lot of trying out and cable checking, it was down to the fact that port B on each charger is not able to push enough power to feed the iPad Air’s requirements (unless I got a faulty batch). I didn’t after more research it would appear that the wattage to charge the iPad is not available at port B.
This aside I have to say these chargers are amazingly quick at charging your devices and I found after just a half hour journey there was a battery percentage increase on the iPad Air of around 20% using port A. and on the iPhone 5 an increase of 25% whilst under use from a Bluetooth headset.
This now makes sense as to why it points out on the packaging that port A is for Apple devices, though port B worked with the iPhone 5 perfectly well, as well as charging a Newtrent IMP120D battery backup, a Bluetooth headset and although not seen on video there was my sons old Galaxy S1 which cheered him up no end when he needed to make a call.
These two, yes TWO, (one black one white) in one box for this money is extremely good value for a very visually appealing and sleek device that does all that is offered from the manufacturer Newtrent it would be more common to see one device for not much less than the current asking price for such a premium product let alone two in one box.
Basically to round up this post I would highly recommend these for a family who travel with the children, a couple who need one each or even a power hungry techaholic like myself who likes to have full power wherever he go’s. A five star rating from me. Hit the Amazon affiliate links below for current pricing in your country.
