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.

 

Affordable, reliable AUX cables from PrimeCables are compatible with many devices and are easily the best choice available in Canada for most needs. Connect your smartphone, tablets, speakers, and other 3.5mm plugged devices. Shop PrimeCables today for these deals and others.

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!

Why to Buy a Magnetic Smartphone Mount to Install in your Car

Enough with tossing your phone onto the seat next to you or in the cup holder. The best way to safely secure your smartphone in your car, truck, or vehicle is with a magnetic smartphone mount.

Anyone who regularly uses their smartphone while driving, either to play music or podcasts, accept phone calls, or for GPS, they should have a magnetic mount to help install your screen in a friendly location. You don’t want to be caught driving with your hand plied around a smartphone.

Be safe.

The big thing with a magnetic car mount is that it prioritizes safety. You get to handle personal preferences and businesses, as needed, hands-free. It can be tough to resist answering a phone call or text while you’re driving. Or, if you want to skip past a song in your playlist. Drivers using a mount are less likely to take their eyes off the road to do these things.

Keep your phone secure.

In addition to keeping your eyes on the road, a magnetic mount for a vehicle also keeps your smartphone in one place. If you’ve ever dropped your phone in the car or have had to go digging through your purse, pocket, or bag to grab it, you always run the risk of accidentally losing it. Magnetic car mounts will keep it in a single place.

Make calls while driving.

The great thing about having a smartphone at eye level is you get to make phone calls while driving at no risk to you or those around you. If you have personal calls or business calls to catch up on, you can do so while driving as long as you have your smartphone securely mounted.

Keep your GPS in full view.

For when you need your GPS handy, you already have a mount right there carrying your smartphone. Also, if you have a separate GPS, some mounts can carry both a smartphone and GPS. Switching one out for the other is very easy, although we do recommend it for when the vehicle isn’t moving just to be safe.

Our preference is a magnetic car mount however there are other car mounts available that you might find are better suited to the design of your vehicle such as dashboard mount, windshield mount, or air vent mount. Do keep in mind the primary benefit of a magnetic car mount, particularly the PrimeCables model, is that it can be installed anywhere in the vehicle. For the best magnetic smartphone mounts in Canada, visit PrimeCables today and see options beginning at less than $6.

Where to Mount your TV Wall Mount in the Home for Maximum Viewing

Unpacking your new TV wall mount, you likely already have ideas on where you want to install it. As you begin to set up though, you may find the studs aren’t where you expect them to be, sunlight may be an issue, or you may be facing safety hazards. Even a lightweight flat-screen can easily weigh 20 or 30 pounds. You don’t want it falling off the wall because the mount is not properly affixed. Here are some things to consider when mounting your TV wall mount.

The traditional mounting places for a TV wall mount.

Mounting your TV in the living room across from the couch is traditional. That said, you’ll want to consider where your light sources are, including window and lamps. Do you think the light from the window could create glare on your flat-screen during the day – if so, you might want to change the location. If your wall’s brick, that could also complicate things compared to mounting on drywall which simply requires you to find the studs. Ultimately, wherever you install your wall mount, maximize it for your comfort.

More unique mounting places for a TV mount.

There are other places to mount the TV in the home but you always want to be aware of what’s around it and the risks. For example, the kitchen is a popular place to mount a TV but you may have splatter from cooking or steam damage it. Alternatively, if you mount your TV outside, this involves navigating many hazards. A home gym, a man-cave in the basement, a she-shed, or bathroom are all areas that need to be evaluated for possible complications.

Where you should never put a TV wall mount.

Don’t put a TV wall mount anywhere that is not safe or comfortable. If it’s not securely mounted to studs, don’t do it. Also, if your TV’s too close to the ground and there’s a risk of a toddler or pet knocking it over, or if it’s somewhere with cables hanging down, you may wish to re-adjust where you’re putting it. Although you can mount a TV over a fireplace, you should have a fireplace-specific TV wall mount to ensure there’s no risk of electronics or cables being exposed to heat.

Identifying the Basic Parts of a Cordless Drill and What They’re For

Get the most out of your cordless drill deal by knowing how to use it and what parts work where. Renovation experts, woodworkers, and DIYers love their cordless drill. Whether you’re new to the party or are simply updating and verifying your knowledge, this guide’s a great resource.

 

Power source

PrimeCables cordless driller
PrimeCables cordless driller

Cordless drills require recharging to be able to tap into their power. As a cordless (DC), you have 4 main types to browse. 4V or 8V drills are ideal for delicate materials, 12V drills are light and compact, 18V or 20V drills are more heavy-duty and are able to be used on the majority of professional work, and 36V are rarely found however they do exist and are used for the heaviest of applications.

 

Trigger

 

Every drill has a variable speed trigger. The more you pull it, the more speed and power you’re provided. This allows a user to modify their approach, depending on the project. The trigger is similar on cordless drills as they are on corded models.

 

Rocker switch

 

The rocker switch on your drill lets you switch the chuck from a rotation forward, when turned clockwise, to reverse, when turned counter-clockwise. When the switch is in the middle, it will lock it out.

 

Gear selector

 

The gear selection switch is not common on all cordless drills but can be found on some, allowing a user to switch gears. As you may know, the relationship between speed and torque is inverse, meaning when you’re on high speed you have less torque and on low speed you have more. Some cordless drills may have three or four gears to choose from.

 

Mode/clutch collar

 

Just below the chuck, you’ll find a rotating collar on most cordless drills. This allows you to select lower torque than what your gears are capable of. This is can help on projects which requires lower torque.

 

Chuck

 

Although some key chucks still exist, the majority on cordless drills these days are keyless. Rotate the chuck at the front clockwise to open or counter-clockwise to close it. As you likely already know, you’ll notice metal prongs which come out to grab your bit when it’s tightened down.

 

Motor

 

Everything relies on the motor to work smoothly. There are two types of motors – brushed and brushless motors. Brushless are more expensive and usually deliver a better performance, compared to brushed which are more affordable and will still deliver a strong performance.
