    AUCH01F_mounted I know by experience that one hand on the wheel and the other holding my phone is NOT safe. Therefore I purchased our Universal Car Windshield Mount Holder to cut my bad habit. It securely holds my phone in place that even on the bumpiest ride it is guaranteed that my phone won't fall out.
    APB05F_with iPhone 5 Worst thing that can probably happen when you're trying to create memories on your Spring Break is to have your phone DIE on you! All those images you were planning to shoot will all go down the drain...unless there's a way to revive it without running back to your hotel. Is there such a thing? Of course there is! Aluratek has a wide variety of portable power banks that are extremely handy. This specific one is the 2600 mAh Portable Battery Charger and what's really special about this power bank is that you don't have to carry a charging cord to juice up your phone.

  • Going Green for St. Patrick's Day

    When it comes to St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, you can always count on lots and lots of … GREEN! (Come on, what did you think we were going to say?) Sure, St. Patrick’s Day means leprechauns, rivers dyed green and four-leaf-clovers, but you may have not realized that “green” has a number of other meanings.

    Going Green
    This idiom has nothing to do with the color, but everything to do with environmentalism.  In the same way that having a “green thumb” refers to growing plants, going green has to do with helping the environment.  Going green can be conserving saving water, using reusable grocery bags, recycling your plastics and paper and supporting various eco-friendly charities.

    Save Some Green
    In this case “green” refers to one thing - cold hard cash. As you’re probably already realized, it can be pretty tricky to hold on to. Save some green with Aluratek by checking out our low low prices on many of our products from our Specials page or refurbished product from our Outlet Store and save up to 50% on a variety of products.

    Green with Envy
    Being green with envy is being full of desire for someone's possessions or advantages. It will be a great way to describe your best friend's reaction when you get one of our new LED Bookmarks, USB 3.0 Port Extender for iMac or Flameless LED Wax Candle.

  • Tis' The Season For Spring Cleaning!


    Spring has approached and you know what that means - it's Spring cleaning time! Yes, it's not exactly as exciting as Easter eggs or cute witto wabbits, but it will make your life easier...after it's all done of course! Here are a few ways to make your Spring cleaning experience a bit more bearable:

    - Are you a pack rat? I'm kind of guilty of being one because I cherish every single thing I own! I still have the plastic bag that carried my amazzzinggg and delicious meal from my first New York trip! My husband wants me throw it away, but I'm having a hard time letting go...yes, it's kind of weird and sad, I know! However, I understand my husband's concern. The more you hold on to, the less storage you will have in the house. Do you have stacks of old CD's / cassette tapes that bring you back to good ol' days or what about that old tv collecting dust in your garage? Donate them to your local Salvation army or Good Will. Download all your music from iTunes into your smart phone, mp3 player or tablet. If you don't want to download, try streaming your music from Pandora or Spotify! No more stacked CDs and tapes!

    - Cleaning out and organizing your garage space will go by much faster with some good music. Jam out to some of your favorite tunes with our BUMP Portable Speaker!

    - We're not suggesting you to toss your family photos or important files, but you can now store both in a digital photo frame or a hard drive.  If you’re looking to clear out some space, consider scanning old printed documents and saving them on an external hard drive. Not only will they take up less space, but they’ll also be easier to find when you need them and possibly more secure than they would be sitting in a box in the garage.

  • February: Spotlight Of The Month

    Every month we want to dedicate a blog post to one of our products.

    So for the month of February, the spotlight goes to... *drum roll please...*

    The USB 3.0 Port Extender for iMac

    They are being shipped, and will arrive very shortly, but I want to share with you the joy of having this little device on hand !

    AUHM0301F_side angle

    Aluratek's USB 3.0 Port Extender for iMac brings an easily accessible USB 3.0 port to the front of your computer. Apple’s recent iMac models are designed with the USB ports hidden on the backside making connecting and disconnecting peripherals a challenge especially if you are frequently accessing these ports.

    AUHM0301F_back angleAUHM0301_with iMac

    Made specifically to work with iMac (released November 2012 or later), AUHM0301F simply plugs into one of the USB ports on the back of your iMac. The creative "J" shape design of AUHM0301F extends a USB 3.0 port around to the front of your computer and snugly attaches into one of the air-vent holes on the bottom edge of your iMac. You can use multiple extenders if looking to connect multiple USB devices.

    AUHM0301F_with flash drive AUHM0301F_with iPhone

    It's very light and compact. You can literally stick this device in your backpack, purse, suitcase....even your pocket! What?? ;) Be patient for the USB 3.0 Portable SATA iMac Extender will be coming soon!

  • Random Acts of Kindness

    It's the start of the week. Mondays. Oh boy. Back to grind! It sure can be a drag when you had such a fun time over the weekend, and then you have to return back to the routine life, right? I think many people share the same pain (#thestruggleisreal). However, what if we can do something to spark it up a little? Maybe something selfless to enlighten someone else for a change? We live in a generation where WE want to make money, WE need to succeed, and nothing is wrong with that, but it would be nice to step out of our normal schedule and our comfort zone and attempt something new.


    Did you know that today is the start of International Random Acts of Kindness week? Such a random idea (no pun intended). If you've never heard of "R.A.K.", it's when you choose someone to uplift and be kind to. Sounds odd, but it's actually a very sweet gesture. You may know someone who is going through a rough patch, or someone who just wants to be noticed. It can also be your sister who is pregnant, or just someone you know that you want to encourage...just because! Basically, anyone! This is the time to go out of your way to make let that person know that he/she is loved.

    Here are a few ideas to R.A.K. someone DIGITALLY (of course): 

    1. A simple text or e-mail can go a long way. Why not send a short and sweet message of encouragement to someone who has been on your mind? I promise that it will bring a smile to their face!

    2. Dedicate a Instagram post to them! A great one is Throwback Thursdays! Surprise them by posting up a picture of you two that you took in the past with a nice caption saying how much you miss them, or telling them to have a great day! Make sure to hashtag #tbt and their names so they get notified!

    3. Snapchat them a fun video selfie message, or snap a picture of something that reminds you of them so they know you are thinking of them!

    4. Download the Kindr app and send out compliments, hugs, messages and even cute animals!

    5. Words are powerful but so are thoughtful gifts. R.A.K. them with some of our very affordable products that are SURE to make them exuberant and grateful to have you as a friend / sister/ brother/ mother/ father...etc you know what I mean ;) Aluratek is currently holding a Valentine's Day promotion. Just because your gift isn't going towards a significant other doesn't necessarily mean you can't purchase anything from this promotion! It's a holiday representing LOVE and there are so many different types of love!

    The International Random Acts of Kindness week ends February 15, but just because that's the last day doesn't mean you can't continue to show kind gestures to people. It should be something we want to do on a daily basis, so no matter what don't let February 15th stop you from displaying love to others! Happy R.A.K. Week!
