How to Take Better Care of Your Mobile Phone in the Car

Mobile phone holders are now more reliable than ever with iFreqs- an advanced holder for travelers who take special care of their mobile devices while on journey.

Mobile devices such as smartphones and other GPS devices are an integral part of modern lives. They are also essential travel tools, helping people navigate their journeys easily and accurately. It is no surprise that with time markets were introduced with mobile phone holders to ensure convenience and safety while road travel. However, conventional mobile phone holders come along with their own set of problems. To overcome the shortcomings in traditional mobile phone holders that are based on either the principles of magnets or on suction cups, iFreqs has launched a futuristic mobile phone holder that promises a better and more reliable experience than its existing counterparts. The product has been launched on Indiegogo, with the funding goal set at $7000.

Conventional mobile phone holders often lose their functionality and reliability under certain circumstances. Suction cups tend to fail on unclean surfaces and when there is a change of temperature and humidity, whereas magnetic holders fail when the road gets rough. Magnetic holders also affect the performance of mobile devices by interfering with the activity of their sensors by exposing them to magnetic fields. iFreqs is a unique venture that aims to eradicate the risks involved in traditional holders and provide users with a strong and stylish holder that functions on Rebound Mechanical Design Technology. This innovative design involves a robotic arm with triangular brackets to hold on to the device, ensuring that the device is in a good grip even when the road becomes bumpy. The cutting edge technology of the product allows for a 360° rotation of the device being held, as well as freestyle tilting at any angle. The prime goal is to provide users with a holder that does not prove to be a hassle or a distraction while driving; the device can be easily slipped into and removed from the holder and a charger can be connected without any troublesome efforts.

iFreqs offers a product that provides a fascinating design without compromising on the quality. Made using an ABS and aluminum alloy, the device is highly durable. In fact, the makers reflect their confidence in the product by offering an impressive 12-month warranty along with every purchase. iFreqs is offered in black and white colored variants and is suitable for most smartphones because of its versatile design that adapts according to the size of the device being held to absorb all kinds of impact. To support iFreqs and to find out more about the perks available for supporters, visit their Indiegogo campaign page.

6 Tips to Find the Best Auto Loan for Your New Purchase

Buying a new car is exciting. Whether you’re purchasing a used vehicle or a brand new car fresh off the assembly line, the feeling of getting behind the wheel of your new car remains the same. Before you can purchase your new car you need to figure out how you’re going to pay for it and the easiest way is to take out a car loan to help cover the costs. It’s important to always borrow responsibly when purchasing. By keeping these key principles in mind you can make sure that you get the best possible loan for your new car.

#1 Watch Your Credit Score

Anytime you are applying for a new line of credit then you should expect to have your credit score checked. While you can rarely make massive changes to your score in a short period of time, by practicing good borrowing habits like paying down your debts and always making your monthly payments on time you can slowly improve your overall credit health in order to get better opportunities in the future. The better your credit score is the more ideal rates you can look for when financing your car.

#2 Shop Around

While the easiest way to get financed for your new car is to simply work with the financiers at the dealership at which you’re making the purchase this does not mean that it is the best way to get financed. When you shop around and check with multiple lending agents you can find the best rates for you. Don’t forget to look online as well to make sure you don’t miss any opportunities.

#3 Save For a Big Down Payment

Many car sale promotions highlight small down payments or even zero down payment options. While this can be appealing if you need a car in a hurry and lack large savings, it is more expensive in the long run. If possible you are much better off saving up to increase the size of your down payment in order to improve your loan. The less you finance the less you pay interest on and the better rates you can get for that interest.

#4 Negotiate Your Price

Conflict can be overwhelming if you don’t have experience with it but you should always make the effort to negotiate the cost of your car, even when you are paying with a loan and don’t need to provide all the cash up front. Because you will be paying interest on your loan it’s particularly important to shave as much off the price as possible because every dollar saved gets compounded by the interest on it you won’t be paying as well.

#5 Buy Responsibly

It’s important that you stay within your means when making a car purchase. It can be tempting to keep adding on little extras here and there, or to stretch for a pricier model, secure in knowing that the monthly change to your premiums seems low. As the months go by, however, those little bits add up quickly and a poor decision can lead you to fall behind and possibly lose your car.

#6 Don’t Finance Your Fees

There are often several fees and taxes which go along with purchasing a new car. While many salesmen will offer you the chance to add those fees into your financing if needed, this is not a great financial decision. The best way to get an auto loan is to pay for these extra costs in cash. When you finance your fees they become much more expensive due to the interest charged against them over the course of your loan.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of jumping at the first opportunity to buy a new car, but patience is a virtue. Taking the time to get the right loan at the right time is worth the effort and helps ensure your car remains a boon and not a burden.
