So which are the ones you should invest your money into? Read on to have an idea:

What may look like a tiny metallic cube actually turns out to be one of the biggest mobile phone accessory solutions- “All-in-1 Cubic Inch,??? as its manufactures like to say. It serves as a keychain. Keychain? Well, yeah. But that’s something that should have been put at the end of its uses. Now, to begin with, WonderCube has a built-in cable, which could be used to either charge a mobile phone (with the added help of a small 9V battery that could be purchased easily from any supermarket) or could be used to sync the phone’s contents with another device. It could also be used as a mobile-holder by sticking the WonderCube with the help of its micro-suction cup plate at the back panel of any phone. Moving on, this wonderful thing could also be used for extra memory space with its built-in memory card reader. At the end of everything, it is a tiny LED torch just as well. Impressive? VERY!
