WinnerGear MicFlip Reversible Micro USB Cable

Do you dislike the way some cables will only plug into your device one way? What if your other tech devices that used Micro USB worked the same way that the iPhone’s Lightning cable worked? What if your Micro USB device cable worked the same way as USB-C ports on some newer devices worked where you can plug the cable into the device either way? Enter the WinnerGear MicFlip reversible Micro USB cable.

I am being serious when I say I really like the fact that the cables are reversible, it just takes something simple in life and further simplifies it. There are many devices in the world that use Micro USB and some that I personally use daily, some of those devices include; Xbox controller, PS4 controller, external hard drives, cameras, smartphones, tablets, etc., just to name a few. I am constantly moving my external HDD between my iMac and my MacBook Air, so it is nice to have a cable that is smart enough to work in either position. I have been using this MicFlip cable for a week now and honestly I didn’t even realize that reversible Micro USB cables existed until I got my hands on this one. I shoot a lot of video so I am constantly moving files from my cameras to external drives to my iMac so having this cable just makes my work easier, a true plug and play device if you will.

There are a lot of things in this world that make me ask myself “why do things work this way?” Then there are things in this world that make me say “why do more things not work a certain way?” The MicFlip happens to be the latter! Although I am seeing more devices that support reversible cables such as USB-C supported devices or Lightning (Apple devices) cables, I still own way more devices that use cables that are not reversible

So if you want a nice looking cable, that does not tangle and you can connect it to any device that supports Micro USB in either orientation then checkout the MicFlip from WinnerGear. Especially if you are into photography or even videography, this is something every photog should have in their bag. The MicFlip is a well designed and hassle-free Micro USB solution, and I highly recommended it!

Who is WinnerGear? Well, they are a company who ran a successful Indiegogo campaign for this very cable. How successful? This cable raised almost $150,000. That is some serious cheddar for a reversible cable, but it also shows that others in the world feel the same way about the ease of use with plugging cables into their devices as I do.

Cooler Master MasterCase 5 Pro

The MasterCase 5 Pro is a Free Form modular system that allows you to easily upgrade any hardware component inside your PC case. What Cooler Master defines as Free Form;

“Free Form enables you to vertically adjust or entirely remove drive cages via an intuitive clip-and-click panel, opening unparalleled flexibility to integrate replacement accessories like fans, water cooling reservoirs or even extra-long graphics cards.”
When choosing a case I wanted something that not only looked great but was also a beast in terms of being able to add more hardware to it as I built my gaming PC. Basically I wanted to future proof it in terms of having enough room on the inside for dual video cards, multiple hard-drives, water cooling options for when I overclock my machine, and something that was easy to manage. The MasterCase 5 Pro was that case! Look at the design of it, the black on it is sort of a matte black which gives it an even more bad ass look to it. The thing looks like the frigging Batmo…

FIVE must have accessories you should purchase with your Phantom 4

Extra battery - I’d recommend two extra batteries but they are expensive so at the minimum at least get one extra battery. The battery last about 25+ minutes or so, depending on what you are doing with your Phantom 4. If you are in Sports mode, flying fast, then the battery will drain quicker or at least it seems that way to me! I currently have three batteries and I am seriously thinking about adding a fourth to my arsenal.Bigger capacity MicroSD card - The Phantom 4 comes with a 16GB memory card which is just not enough storage capacity to be useful for most video shoots, especially if shooting in 4K. I’d opt for at least 64GB. Make sure it is 4K Ultra HD ready, faster write speeds are a bonus too! Currently I have two 64GB cards plus the 16GB card that came with the Phantom 4. I use the 16GB card for still images and the bigger cards for video.Phantom 4 Propellers - If you are new to unmanned ariels / drones then you might not have heard but accidents happen, often. Usually the pro…

ProCraft Cases backpack for Phantom 4

I recently purchased a ProCraft Cases backpack to use with my Phantom 4 and I wanted to give a brief overview of the product; as well as some of my initial opinions. The most important aspect of this bag is that the Phantom 4 does indeed fit, this bag was designed for the Phantom 3 initially. That is one of the biggest problems with the Phantom 4 just launching, sellers are trying to market their products made for the Phantom 3 as being for the Phantom 4. Some things do work well, like ND filters, but other accessories might not work with the Phantom 4 being a bit different in design from the Phantom 3. So as I purchase these items I will probably do short demo videos and write-up reviews on the products as I get them. The outside of the ProCraft Cases backpack is made of a vinyl material that feels very well made. It has 2 straps that allow you to wear this over the shoulders — there is also a handle on top of the bag if you prefer to carry it. There are 6 pockets (including the pouc…
