#Review: Cord2Go Retractable, Portable Charge Cord | #SkivaTech #Cord2Go


A note prior to the body of this review: My most sincere apologies to the company for my lack of timeliness in having this review published. A subsequent post to follow will future explain, for those interested in knowing where I’ve been.


For review, I was send the cord to go retractable USB lightning charging cable, for iPhone 5 and above. While I generally do not review items that don’t work with devices I have, there was a mix up and I was sent an item incomparable with any of my devices. I’ve enjoyed all the products I’ve reviewed from this company, so I figured this product wouldn’t disappoint.


I was excited to receive this product, as it is just what I wanted for for using in conjunction with my portable charger. The size of this cord makes it much more convenient for storing in my purse. Unfortunately, it will not be for me. I thought about giving away this cord, but have decided to keep it on hand for friends who need the new generation cord/ for when I might finally upgrade my phone this coming year.


Overall, I quite like this product and am rather bummer that they don’t make one compatible with the first generation chargers! I would buy one for myself and a couple as gifts. Of course, I do have plenty of friends who are with the times. Unlike myself, my sister and a couple friends who still have iPhone 4s’s. If you’re in the market for a small, easily portable charging cord, I would highly recommend checking out this one.

#Review & #Giveaway: intelliGLASS by intelliARMOUR- The Smarter Screen Protector | Ends 6/18

This post contains products received for free in exchange for an honest review. This post contains affiliate links that will earn me a small payment if clicked.


For review, I was sent the intelliARMOR HD Glass Screen Protector for iPhone*. I’ve seen a lot about glass screen protectors lately, as well as many reviews online for this particular brand. The curiosity got to me and I decided to give intelliGLASS a go. I could always use a nice, sturdy way to keep my screen protected (as I tend to drop my phone).

intelliGLASS Information | maegal.com

I must confess, I haven’t actually placed this screen protector on my phone yet, so this review is based on how durable the screen protector was when I tried to hurt it before it was on my phone. This is going to sound silly, but I’m waiting to put this protector on my phone until the next time I visit my sister. I always have my sisters’ boyfriend put my protectors on, because he’s the best at time. As this screen protector is going to last me a while, I want it to be perfectly placed on my phone.

intelliGLASS Packaging | maegal.com

My first impression with this screen protector has been extremely positive. I tried to scratch it up with my finger nails and keys (like they said!) and it didn’t scratch at ALL! (If you would like to see a video of me proving this, leave a comment!) Pretty impressive. I also like that that the screen doesn’t seem to smudge/ show finger prints as badly as prior screen protectors I’ve used. Aside from the screen protector itself, I also quite like the packaging and inclusiveness of the packaging. The set comes with everything you need to do it yourself (assuming you aren’t a chicken like me).

intelliGLASS Contents | maegal.com

And because I’m a goof, look at this fun little void sticker! If I had a product that being opened voided a return, I’d want this.


Overall, I’m very pleased with this protector and can’t wait to get it on my phone. Usually you can barely handle screen protectors without damaging them. This one you can poke at even off of your phone and it staying in tact, up broken or scratched. I know my co-worker has been enjoying using hers for a while now!

And for the primary reason I’m posting this review in a hurry, to share with you all this…


Giveaway extended!

Note: If you previously entered, you have been awarded a bonus entry as a thank you for baring with me.

Review: Rif6 USB Wall and Car Charging Kit (2 Wall Charger, 1 Car Charger, 2 Data Cables)

Rif6 USB Wall and Car Charging Kit | maegal.blogspot.com
For review, I was sent this Rif6 USB Wall and Car Charging Kit. The kit contains: 1 car charger with three ports, 2 wall chargers with two ports each, and 2 USB to mini-USB data cables (one black, one white). The kit contains everything you need to charge a phone with a mini-USB port, and can easily be used with an iPhone with the additional of a USB charging cord. Continue on to read my review…

I was excited to review this charging kit for a couple of reason. 1) The cheap car charger I previously used broke, after just a couple uses. 2) I plan on getting an Android-based smartphone when my iPhone’s contract expires, so the whole kit with cords will be awesome to have. 3) You can never have too many wall chargers.
Rif6 Wall and Car Charger and USB Cord Kit Contents | maegal.blogspot.com
While I have only used these chargers once each (and haven’t been able to try out the cords), my overall impression is good initially. I used the car charger to have my phone charging while I drove the three hours to my boyfriends this weekend. It seemed to do a fine job of progressively charging my phone even while running applications. 

Below is a more detailed description of what the kit contains;

Rif6 Car and Wall Charger, USB 2.0 Data Cables | maegal.blogspot.com

I tried out the wall charger with my current iPhone cord and was please to see that, as expected, it works as it should. It’s nice to have a smaller wall charger so I can replace the large one that’s currently in my car. The other of the two wall chargers will be nice to have in another room of the house so I don’t have to always charge my phone far away in the bedroom.

Overall, I’m pleased with the chargers. The true test will be how they hold up over time. As I mentioned, my previous car charger only lasted a couple uses before dying. I’m feeling good about the longevity of this charger.

Overview & Giveaway: Skiva Tech Lightning Fire C-1 Car Charger | Ends 12/28

skiva tech lightning fire car charger | maegal.blogspot.com
For review, I was sent a Skiva Tech Lightning Fire Car Charger (for iPhone 5, iPad and newer iPods). Unfortunately, I’ve done it AGAIN and offered to review a product without realizing before hand that it isn’t compatible with my iPhone/ iPod. Fortunately for you, that means that I get to host another Instagram giveaway! Continue on to read my overview and enter to win…

As I will not be opening this package to review (don’t want to be playing around with someone’s prize), I’ll be giving an overview.
My overall initial impression of this product is good and I certainly wish I could use it myself! It’s a nice size, color and have appealing packaging.

skiva tech lightning car charger info | maegal.blogspot.com

The cost of this product is a bit more than I paid for my other car charger, but with that comes quality. I wanted to review this charger because my cheap one was just that, cheap! Even the quality of the Skiva Tech charger from looking at the packaging seems MUCH more superior.
Overall, I’ve been given a good impression of this charger. It had good reviews on Amazon, which I value. I’d really love to see someone who wins this charger get good use of it!
