Brown’s Bargains Episode Twenty-Eight

Brown’s Bargains has undergone a price rise! This means that we can now feature three items for under the new price of £100 each, instead of £30 each. We hope this new rise will give listeners more variety when shopping, and enable Brown’s Bargains to source even greater value for your money.

MyCharge Peak, available from Computer Room Services, £41.67

The myCharge Peak is the perfect way to keep your devices charged while on the go.
Plus with clear voice output, you’ll always know if your battery is turned on and
how much power is remaining. Charge up to 3 devices at once including the iPhone,
Android, bluetooth speakers, or other USB devices. Plus, a wall charger is included
in the unit and can fold out for easy charging. Note the wall charger is a USA style plug, but this device can also be charged from a USB wall plug such as the iPhone plug. We sell these wall plugs as a separate option, but the UK version does not come with this unit. It can also be charged from a computer via USB. Hello myCharge. The myCharge Peak 6000 is a rechargeable 6000mAh battery pack that
will charge the average smartphone four times, and even charges iPad and other tablets.
The Ultimate Solution for Power Anxiety
myCharge Peak 6000 addresses one of the most critical needs when it comes to mobile
technology: the loss of power. Unlike wall and car chargers that require an outlet
to function, the portable power of myCharge Peak 6000 allows users to stay charged
while on-the-go, wherever and whenever.

Kings Audio Sovereign USB Memory Stick Player, available from Computer Room Services, £32.00

The Sovereign USB Memory Stick Player now has the capacity to bookmark multiple USB memory sticks, so if you have a talking book, talking newspaper or a magazine all on the go at the same time, the Sovereign player can bookmark each stick with a tap of the play/pause button, allowing you to go back at any time and listen from where you last left off.

Yet another new feature is the addition of Cue and Review, so that by holding down the Rewind button the listener can wind back within the track to replay, say, a telephone number or other useful information. Holding down the Forward button will allow the listener to ‘fast forward’ within the track.
Also, the Sovereign MP3/WAV Player has a redesigned battery compartment that now takes a standard Lithium Ion battery (Nokia Style) which clips in easily. These batteries are widely available in the UK from shops and online. It is even Bluetooth compatible!

BlueTiger SoundTrax Bluetooth Stereo Headphones, available from Computer Room Services, £60.00

SoundTRAX by Blue Tiger are the wireless headphones that you have been looking for! Up to 30 hours of use on a single charge, pristine music clarity, and Bluetooth, 3.5 mm, and microSD card connection options.
SoundTRAX are equipped with a built-in microphone so you can answer your calls, or use the headset for communication and audio transmission for online games. Hear every detail in a multiplayer match and chat with your teammates all without getting your mouse and keyboard mixed up with messy headset cables.
On top of the ear cup, you will find a microSD card slot. Stick a microSD card full of up to 32gb of mp3 or WAV files and you won’t even need to take your phone with you! Perfect for jogging, cycling, or working out.
SoundTRAXâ„¢ are also equipped with an auxiliary port to plug any device with a 1/8″ stereo audio cable output directly into the headset.
Built-in Bluetooth technology with A2DP allows any iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android devices, or any other Bluetooth devices to play through the headset wirelessly.
Multiple connection options, extreme battery life, and high quality sound make the SoundTRAXâ„¢ the perfect solution for wireless audio fidelity.
