Time was, you could easily hold a phone on your shoulder and have both hands free to make notes and hold your drink. Those days are back with this handset that mimics the Bell System's model 500, in use 1950 to 1984 and designed by the venerable Henry Dreyfuss. Stick the standard 1/8" mini-plug into your cell phone, tablet or PC and you're a mad man on the phone. Includes answer button, volume control and a coiled cord longer than you need. Now just choose a retro color that suits you!
In fact, put (2) USBs in your buggy with this cigarette-plug adapter that converts to two standard USB outlets with a 2.1 Amp output so you and your passenger can get recharged together. We’ll pick one in a color that will either complement or contrast with your dashboard, and your eyes.
Our oddest twofer: a 9-foot USB charging cable with tape-measure markings in 1/16” and 1mm increments on it. Has a standard USB jack at one end and both micro-USB and lightning jacks on a Y-plug at the other. Not only permits long-distance charging, it tells you how long the distance is!
They can even be 3 feet apart if you have this handy USB to Micro-USB charging cord, thoughtfully housed in a spring-loaded, retracting coil. Housing measures 1-1/2” dia x 5/8” and both plugs have integral LEDs that morph red, green and blue when connected. Available in a bunch of colors, and we’ll pick one without looking.
Our 4-1/2" long x 2" wide x 1" deep cell phones fit nicely in this black-leather carrying case. The front is a 2-1/2" x 1-5/8" window of clear plastic through which you can press the buttons. The case is open on the bottom so you can access the ports, and comes with a 6" wrist strap and a plastic belt/pocket clip. A small strap snaps over the phone antenna to keep it from slipping out. Unfortunately, if your phone doesn't have an external antenna, there is nothing to keep it in except a snug fit, an extraordinarily rigid posture, and a determination to never bend over.
Ten-packs of 2-pin breakouts (or terminal blocks) from telephone junction boxes, in black or gray with red and green leads that terminate in a modular plug. The breakouts measure 11/16" wide x 5/8" high x 3/4" deep. The screw terminals are 1-1/4" long and the modular plug jumper reaches about 2-3/8" when snapped into its clip.
By jiminy. A little jumper cord with a modular plug on one end and flat "T" connectors on the other side at the end of dual leads. Wires are insulated, with 3-1/2" of the 7" length covered by a telephone-wire-style gray jacket.
Our phone headsets all have swing-up mics with a windscreen, adjustable headbands and padded ear-pieces. The 4-foot cords terminate in a 5-pin DIN plug. (Orienting the plug with the pins on the bottom, the two left pins are 35-ohm, probably for the speaker; the middle pin is not active; and the two right pins are 2K, we think for the mic.) You pick the left-ear set or the adjustable set, which will fit either left or right ears.
