  • History Of The Camera

    These days it is so easy to take out your phone and quickly shoot a photo anywhere at any time! There are so many cool different gadgets that can be an addition to taking photos with your phone such as portable mobile lens and selfie-sticks. It is a lot easier and convenient to live with today’s technology versus…even 10 years ago!

    Today is National Camera Day and I thought it would be fun to draw out a timeline of evolution of cameras. So here we gooooo...

  • Just For Dad

    Do you know what this Sunday is? That's right, it's Father's Day! This special day allows children and mothers to express love and gratitude towards their fathers, yet sadly Father's Day does not get the attention it deserves compared to other holidays such as Mother's Day. Did you find a gift for your dad yet? According to National Retail Federation, Father's Day is the "smallest of the gift giving holiday." Most gifts that are given to their dads are greeting cards or the oh so popular present, the neck tie. Not that those aren't good gifts, but have we ever asked ourselves what our fathers REALLY want for Father's Day?

    FathersDay

    Aluratek is having a Father's Day promotion where we have carefully thought-out and selected a handful of products that we know will have dads smiling. Less than a week left, our promotion will be ending so hurry and place your order!

    And lastly, take a minute to watch this video to see how hilarious a dad's love for their kids can be - despite all the pain and tears...

  • The Fear Is Real With A Dead Battery

    APB11F charging amartphone

    Have you ever had a dying smartphone battery or worse -  a dead battery at the most inopportune time? Of course, we all have - and when is it ever a good time? We have become so dependent on our phones it's almost comical to think about the fear in our hearts, the panic and that feeling of being "naked" without a working phone.

    One of the places you will want to ensure your smartphone battery never loses its charge is when you are traveling. No doubt many of us will be hitting the road for family trips and adventures with our smartphones in tow this summer. The last thing you need in an emergency situation is to have a dead cell phone battery with no way to recharge.

    Aluratek's line of Portable Battery Chargers are a great solution to quickly charge your smartphone whenever, wherever. These chargers are a wonderful travel solution for life on the road when you don't have the convenience of an AC outlet nearby. Our portable battery chargers come in all output capacities from 2600 mAh to 18000 mAh and (shhh) we are looking into bringing in a 60,000 mAh battery charger which is more like a mini generator. All models come with a single or dual charging port(s).

    Currently, we have a Father's Day promotion through the 21st of June that features our 6000 mAh Portable Battery Charger with LED Flashlight at $30 off MSRP!

  • Love Is In The Air!

    Move out of the way February - there's another love sheriff in town and it is the ULTIMATE love month that is far more meaningful than Valentine's Day!  Every year millions of people walk down the aisle and begin the start of their new lives together as couple, but did you know that June is the most popular month to get married? Oh, and if that's the case then there must be a fair share of anniversaries too! Awwww, love!

    JuneLove

    I have 2 weddings this month to attend already! I love wedding season, but I always struggle trying to find the right gift for the happy couple. Cash gifts or gift cards are always convenient, but it seems so impersonal, right? And then you go onto their wedding registry and the prices are unreasonable! I bought my brother-in-law a bed sheet and candle off of his registry and I was not happy spending X amount of money for a bed sheet and a candle - let's just say it was a little too high taste than most registries I've purchased off of. So what's my point? Finding a wedding gift can sometimes be a real you-know-what...

    So if you're attending a wedding this month or anytime soon and you feel my pain, here's a couple products we have at Aluratek that will make perfect wedding gifts :

    ALC3506F - ALC3507F_lifestyle Aluratek's 6" Flameless LED Wax Candle makes a great addition to your home or business without the mess of melting wax and the danger of an open flame. The candle works with any interior decor so you can create beautiful mantel displays, tabletop centerpieces and add accent to any bedroom, kitchen, table, end table, reception counter or desk. It brings a warm ambiance to any room - very safe and romantic!
    ADMPF114F_front angle Aluratek's Digital Photo Frames are a wonderful way to bring treasured photos and memories to life with incredible image clarity in rich and vibrant colors! The married couple can store all their wedding and honeymoon photos and videos in this one simple digital photo frame! They'll love this!

    You're welcome. Happy wedding season!
