Geekscape Tech Review: JCPAL 3D Armor, Preserver Screens for iPhone 7 and LINX Ultra Slim USB-C to 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub

Monday 9th January 2017 by GadgetMan

Well, I missed out on CES 2017, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy some new technology from a company that I have not heard of before. Such is the case for JCPAL, which stands for…I’m not certain, honestly. Anyway, here are three different products.

First, I’m going to talk about two screen protectors for the iPhone 7. Let’s talk about the 3D Armor Anti Blue Light Glass Screen Protector. It is made of tempered glass, and it could be ultra-tough Gorilla Glass. It has a 3D curved edge, and it is easy to install. Also, there is a lot of scratch resistance and a fingerprint resistant coating.

I am told that it can protect your eyes against harmful blue light, and I believe this might have been a subject that could get a lot of press soon. I’m beginning to wonder how much of a terrible problem this is for our eyes, because I’m wondering if our mobile devices are killing our eyes. I mean, are we going blind because of them?

That’s probably a subject for another article. If you are interested in this, head over to the JCPAL site and lay down $39.99 CAD for it.

Okay, now let’s talk about the Preserver Ultra-Tough Edge Glass Screen Protector. There doesn’t seem to be any feature about blocking out harmful blue light, but it is aluminosilicate glass with “perfect clarity”.

It has a PET 3D curved edge frame that is also easy to install and fingerprint-resistant coating. It is also quite scratch-resistant. I’m not certain what else I can really say about it, as this is pretty much a description of every screen protector ever made.

So, if you are interested in this Preserver Ultra-Tough Edge Glass Screen Protector, it can be purchased for about $39.99 CAD on the JCPAL site. I think those are Canadian dollars, so I’ll let you do the fiscal translation.

Now, I am going to be looking at the LINX Ultra Slim USB-C to 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub. I believe that the purpose of the 4-port Hub is to connect to a range of USB A devices to your MacBook’s USB-C port. This way, you can access a hard drive, printer, or anything else that uses USB, which is just about everything.

MacBooks aren’t the only thing that the 4-port Hub is good for. I had a chance to try it out on my HTC 10, and I was able to use the 4-port USB A Hub to read files on thumb drives. I could also use it to recharge USB devices, as I just used the battery in my HTC to charge my Bluetooth headset.

In addition to that, the 4-port Hub has the latest 3.1 standard for high speed data transfer, and if you like it, check it out on the JCPAL site. It can be purchased in gold and silver for $49.99 CAD.
