Answer honestly: How many times have you lost your phone or your set of keys in the past few months? More often that you’d like right? We all get a bit rusty as we grow old and set reminders for things we don’t want to forget, or in the case of Nonda’s iHere3.0 , items that we don't want to lose.
Weighing under 9 grams, the Nonda iHere3 is very light. It sits alongside your keys in your keychain and offers a two way communication with your smartphone. What that means that you can either ping your smartphone using the button on the Nonda iHere 3.0 or you can find your keys using the app on the smartphone.
Setup is fairly easy- you download the iHere3 app on your phone and pair it with the Nonda iHere3. Following that, a press of the only button on the Nonda will ring your phone’s ringtone or a tap on your phone will alert you where the Nonda is. This is done using Bluetooth wireless technology which, Nonda claims, has a range of 75 feet. During my couple of weeks of testing, there were a couple of times where I couldn’t get it to work even though the phone and the Nonda iHere3 weren’t very far apart from each other. However, most of the time, I had no issues with it. Other than ringing you phone, the button on iHere 3.0 could also be used to take selfies if that’s your thing.
My only concern with Nonda iHere3 is that it needs to be charged to work and based on my usage, the battery would last anywhere between 10 to 12 days. While that’s a reasonable amount of time, it is one more gadget that you need to keep charged. That being said, if you are looking for an item locator, Nonda states that it’s the only rechargeable one in the world so you don’t need to constantly shell out cash for batteries. And it’s pretty good at what it does.
Along with iHere 3.0, I also received three ZUS USB A cables with micro USB, Lightning and Type-C connectors. Each of these “Super Duty” cables is made up of DuPont Kevlar fiber which is an incredibly strong material and tangle free. These cables work really well with the ZUS Smart Car charger that I had bought when it was initially released. The two port charger provides very fast charging for your phones and, when used with the ZUS app, can help locate your car as well.
The Nonda iHere 3.0 retails for AED 99 while the ZUS Smart Car charger goes for AED 149. Both of these products can be purchased on souq.com or Virgin Megatore outlets across the UAE
