What are the Best AUX Cables in Canada – buy them from PrimeCables

Aux cables are multi-purpose and very handy to have around the house. Also known as auxiliary cables, they can be used to hook up a smartphone or device to the car stereo, to headphones, or to speakers without having to tap into Bluetooth or having to have Bluetooth capability.

 

There are dozens of different aux cables available, each with a different type of connector. Depending on the need, the connector’s to match. Not every aux cord is equal. The best aux cables are going to be those customized to your needs, in addition to nailing down an affordable price, high quality materials, and a logical construction.

 

PrimeCables’ Aux cables are among the best in Canada, available at several different price points, at various lengths, and in various types. All of our cables pass strong quality control standards, testing sound and durability. Some of the deals you’ll find in our catalogue include a 3.5mm 1-metre AUX cable for $4.99, a 3.5mm three-feet M/M stereo Aux cable with Nylon braided protection for $4.99, a 3.5mm six-feet model at a similar price point, and other models.

 

The best audio quality and reliability comes from Aux cables with gold-plated connectors. Gold transmits electrical signals better than other materials – which can include aluminum, iron, or bass. Gold always provides a stronger connection and clearer sound.

 

The best AUX cable in Canada is also going to have to be durable and made with braided Nylon, such as PrimeCables’ Braided Nylon prevents tangling, fraying, and breaking of the wires inside. No matter what you need it for, we also recommend going with a cable a little bit longer than what you think you need. Especially if it’s for use in a car, the more room you have to play with, the more thankful you’ll be to have the cable to go where you need it to go. Unless you’re sure about the limited space you have, consider a slightly longer aux cable.

 

The best AUX cable overall PrimeCables is our 1-metre male stereo Nylon braided protected cable. It’s pet chew resistant, has the sheathing you want, is made from a beveled step design, boasts zero distortion and complete transmission, and has corrosion-resistant gold-plated audio plugs.

Top 5 Benefits to an Ergonomic Sit-Stand Desk you Don’t want to Forget

Back pain in Canada is responsible for more than 26 million lost work days every year. We don’t often associate back pain with sitting but as it turns out, working in an office can come with significant pressure put on our frames and poor posture.

The only real solution is to surround a person with ergonomic and personalized office equipment to ensure your body’s appropriately supported. Here are the top 5 benefits we believe are worth considering with an ergonomic desk.

Increases productivity.

You may not believe it but a sit-standing desk can improve your productivity in small and large ways alike. As less pressure sits on your frame, this keeps your mind thinking faster and keeps your body engaged. Whether you’re sitting or standing, you never have to leave your desk. You’ll remain locked into your work no matter what’s happening in the workplace.

Customizable to your body.

When you have a desk you can move up and down, adjusting its height as needed, you have power to personalize it according to how your body’s feeling. When you want to sit, sit. Alternatively, if you want to stand, stand. Find the right fit to your needs and adjust it throughout your work day.

Comfort to the nines.

When we’re discussing the benefits of ergonomic sit-stand desks, you’ll notice rather quickly how better you feel not having to remain sitting for consecutive hours in a day. Your body’s comfort level will increase, allowing you to switch positions without walking away from your desk. If you’re easily fatigued sitting in a chair all day, this is a great way to increase energy.

Save money.

When you’re unable to work because of an injury, when you have to call in sick, or when you’re having a rough day where you simply cannot give your best effort, all of this adds up to wasted money. You’ll actually do more and make more with an ergonomic desk you can arrange as needed.

Health benefits.

Prolonged sitting puts a person at increased cardiovascular risk. The health benefits of sit-standing desks are well understood, reducing symptoms of musculoskeletal stress, reducing lower back pain, alleviating neck and shoulder pain, keeping joints in a neutral position, resting the arms, and minimizing mental fatigue. Adjust the height as needed!

Did you Know Sit-Stand Desks can Help you Lose Weight and Stay Skinny – it can!

A common question received regarding sit-standing desks is whether they can really help someone lose weight or not. Recent research in the Applied Ergonomics journal helped shine a light on the potential of sit-stand desks.

It’s no secret that looking at a standing desk, it’s promoting someone to stand and create movement. The more we move, the more calories we burn – theoretically speaking. Many people believe that height adjustable desks can work to help office workers keep their bodies engaged while they remain sedentary.

Being sedentary is well understood to raise the risks of heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and premature death. Some research published has even associated prolonged sitting with up to 430,000 deaths a year worldwide. Also, when we sit, it interferes with our ability to regulate blood pressure and metabolize fat as well.

A recent study amalgamated the results of 53 studies examining the benefits of sit-stand desks, motivated to find the truth behind the popular ergonomic office furniture. Some believe it helps with weight loss while others dispute the claim. The study examined sit-standing desks across six categories – behaviour, physiological, work performance, psychological, discomfort, and posture. The results show that although people using sit-stand desks tended to spend more time standing than individuals using regular desks, it did not necessarily result in weight loss every time.

The health benefits of sit-stand desks are numerous, including relieving low back pain relief and decreasing blood pressure overall. That said, when it comes to weight loss, the results just aren’t there to conclude every person who uses ergonomic desks will experience weight loss. Although some will, others won’t. What the study also showed was that sit-stand desks did improve comfort level and behaviour tremendously. If you’re a worker who is concerned about your comfort and/or who wants to attempt to use it as a weight loss strategy, the researchers of this paper are not necessarily saying not to do it. In other words, go for it!

The big takeaway of the Applied Ergonomics study is ultimately that someone who has an ergonomic desk is not going to magically lose weight. In the same way that someone switching to healthy dieting is not magically going to melt off the pounds. There are several factors which go into weight loss, any of which can affect a person. As proper usage differs from person to person in an office setting, using your sit-stand desk the correct way at the suggested dosages likely does produce a difference in weight loss.

Should I use a Surge Protector to Support my Gaming Station – we say yes!

For gamers, there’s nothing more valuable than their console and all the electronics which surround it. Although it’s unlikely, if there’s ever a power outage at home or let’s say your wall outlet is hit with a surge of electricity, you always want to be protected.

 

Surge protectors are not expensive and yet, they carry so much value because of what they protect. When you use a surge protector, you don’t need to worry about your gaming console being at risk in a power outage because it won’t be. Whatever’s plugged into it, rest assured knowing it’s all under heavy protection.

How to Install a Wall Mount | PrimeCables Guide

Installing a TV wall mount has been made easy with PrimeCables’ dozens of different wall mount models. If you don’t know where to start in shopping for your wall mount, consider any of the models available – basic, fixed, tilt, swivel, full-motion, articulating arm, pull-down, etc. After you’ve chosen your TV wall mount, your installation will begin by checking the walls for studs. Even though flat-screens are lighter today than televisions have ever been in the past, they still require studs to be properly mounted. Studs will anchor the screws. Keep in mind drywall anchors will not work and eventually, using them to mount a television, you’ll see permanent damage come to the wall as your screen comes crashing down to the floor.

After you have found the studs or while you are searching, one must consider where the most appropriate viewing height is according to where you intend to sit. If you have some cardboard, consider making a template the same size as your flat-screen. Use it to gauge where a high-definition TV would fit best. Before you start drilling anything, ensure your choice is centered, not too high, and keep in mind that if it’s immediately across from a window, there could be glare. A real killer to daytime enjoyment of one’s media center, glare can be limited and even erased altogether by changing the location of your television and/or using a wall mount that tilts. Be sure to plan where you intend to insert cables and where any associated devices may sit, such as streaming boxes, TiVos, cable boxes, antennas, laptops, or other devices.

Next, use a pencil to mark down the stud holes you intend to drill into. Ensure everything is mounted and then, drill. Position the wall mount accordingly and once again, ensure everything is level. Attach your mount to the wall and make sure it is firm. Then attach any piece required to the television. Then, if you can use a friend, install the TV onto the mount and ensure everything’s affixed properly. It’s that easy. Browsing PrimeCables, you’ll find a wide array of different wall mounts to browse in type, size, and price. Buying your wall mount from PrimeCables, you’ll enjoy fast, free shipping to anywhere in Canada on orders above $49, in addition to free returns and a 1-year product guarantee. Shop PrimeCables today to buy the perfect wall mount for your home and see the difference. Build a more immersive home theater experience unlike anything you’ve had in your home before!

How to Choose Screen Projection for your Mobile Device

Have you ever thought about the possibilities of making your mobile device’s screen bigger than ever. Screen projection for mobile devices is more than possible. Make your screen bigger using SlimPort, MHL, and/or Apple connections.

 

The award-winning SlimPort is compatible with iPhones, Apple products, and smartphones of all varieties. Complete with full high-definition 1080p resolution, 3D video and eight-channel sound, and ultra-HD displays with up to 4K resolution, there are no limits. Set up your mobile device to a projector, a computer monitor, or a flat-screen. Buy the SlimPort micro USB to HDMI adapter from PrimeCables for only $9.99.

 

If SlimPort is not your thing, the impressive MHL might be. Known as ‘mobile high-definition link’, this is fast charging, for high definition displays up to 1080p60 video, eight-channel sound, and no lag playing things like music, video, and gaming. A great MHL device is the 5pin to 11pin micro-USB adapter to MHL adapters for Samsung smartphones for less than $1. If MHL is not ideal to your current home entertainment setup, the third option evidently are Apple connections. The iPhone comes with 30pin, as does the iPad. The Mac is usually mini DisplayPort or Thunderbolt.
