IntelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector

Review & Giveaway

intelliarmour intelliglass review

We spend way too much money on our electronic hand-held devices to risk them being damaged.  Whether it be a drop to the ground or something that comes crashing down on the device – if the screen receives damage – it could be a costly repair.  That’s where protecting your device with an intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector would be to your benefit.

Sure we can use the little plastic films that are available to protect screens, but one risks a broken screen if the device gets hit just so.  What the IntelliGLASS offers is an extra layer of hardened glass that fits right over your device’s screen.  Simply put – the IntelliGLASS will get the brunt of the impact opposed to the device’s screen, hopefully enough so that there will be no screen damage.

What is intelliGLASS?

Each of our screen protectors is crafted from intelliGLASS™, our most advanced protection yet. intelliGLASS™ is crafted from hardened glass that offers better than steel scratch protection, an oil and smudge resistant outer coating, and advanced silicone adhesion that eliminates bubbles and permanent residue.

The result is unmatched protection without losing clarity or touchscreen sensitivity. But that’s not it: we’re so confident that intelliGLASS™ will deliver as promised, we guarantee that it will last the life of your device.

All you need comes neatly packaged in a protective package.

intelliarmor intelliglass review 3

The little brown packet you see on the left side contains an alcohol prep pad and microfiber cleaning cloth, which you use to clean the device’s screen.  There is a squeegee that is used with the cleaning cloth after the intelliGLASS has been placed on the screen.  One wraps the squeegee with the cloth to get any left over air bubbles out, squeegeeing from the middle outward.  The buttons are to raise the home button to make it easier to use that button where the intelliGLASS will end up raising above the original button.  You can choose between a clear button or a black button depending on your device and/or preference.

The packet on the right (above) contains the intelliGLASS and a sticky film to remove any dust and debris from the device after you’ve cleaned the screen with the alcohol prep and cleaning cloth.

Applying the intelliGLASS to the device is fairly easy; though I do suggest you have an extra set of hands available to help with the film removal and placement.

When all is said and done, your device will be protected by the intelliGLASS, and will appear as though there is nothing over the screen.

Here are shots that were captured after the install (by a camera):

intelliGLASS review intelliGLASS review

I didn’t use a button to raise the home button – I didn’t feel the need to.

Our Thoughts on the intelliGLASS

I loved that the product came with literally everything needed for installation.  The sticky film provided was a God send; simply because we have a lot of pets.  If possible, an extra set of hands is helpful during placement of the intelliGLASS to the device.  Two of us placed it on the iPad in no time.

The intelliGLASS was installed an iPad AIR 6.  This device is used for Assisted Typing.  That said, we’ve had no issues with the intelliGLASS hindering swiping the screen or typing.  Often times, the pressure of my son’s pointer finger, when typing, is on the weaker side.  We’ve had no issues typing with him because of this.  This proved to me that the intelliGLASS did not affect the use of the screen.

As you can imagine, since this device is used for Assisted Typing, many hands are on that iPad screen.  The screen pictures you see above depict no smudges or fingerprints and I didn’t clean the screen before taking the pictures.  That’s very important for my son, as his vision is less than perfect.  I am more than thrilled with the intelliGLASS living up to it being oil and smudge resistant.

I have to tell you, that between the cost of the iPad AIR 6 ($700) and the price of the case that is needed to attach the device to his wheelchair ($190 which doesn’t include a screen protector) – I was thrilled when I was approached by intelliARMOR asking me to perform an intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector review – when I was.  The timing couldn’t have been more perfect.

I feel much better knowing that his communication device has an extra layer of protection that is living up to what the company says it will (no clarity loss, oil and smudge resistant).

Lastly, there’s a piece of mind knowing that the company  states: we guarantee that it will last the life of your device.”

travelon anti-theft messenger bag

If you are a traveler who wants to condense all your baggage – this Travelon Anti-Theft Urban E/W Messenger Bag from GoInStyle.com, is for you!  Keeping your gear safe and looking stylish with this urban messenger bag by Travelon is very easy.

This isn’t just an ordinary messenger bag.  In addition to the messenger bag being made of slash proof material, this bag also features an RFID blocker to keep your personal information secure.

travelon anti-theft messenger bag

As you can see the Travelon Messenger Bag has so much room that you can take along credit cards, electronic devices, a passport, cell phone, a water bottle, money, and so much more.  There’s no need to be carrying a purse or wallet in one place and your devices in another.  This messenger bag simply simplifies your life!

The messenger bag is made of a nylon material with durable mesh padded webbing that is of slash-proof construction.  The outer shell material is not flimsy.  It’s sturdy and holds it shape very well.  Comparing this messenger bag to leather – this is much lighter.  That’s important if you’re going to be carrying it around a lot and have it loaded with all you need.

Note – photo depicts the color of the bag as being blue – it is actually a true black.

There are multiple inside pockets that allow you to carry everything you need – seriously – this bag is all you need.

Included is an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) blocking card slot.  What that RFID blocker means is that your personal information will be safe and secure while in the card slots – safe from those looking to steal your identity, banking information etc.  With identity theft being in full swing, it’s imperative that one does what is needed to keep their information safe.  The best article I’ve read on protecting yourself against theft can be found at http://www.consumerreports.org.

If you’re someone who likes to carry around multiple computing devices – this bag will suit you just fine.  It holds an iPad, tablet, and laptop – *Note – holds up to a 15″ laptop.  The bag is spacious!

The picture below shows where I was able to get an iPad in a case, a tablet in a case and an iPod in a case into the pockets.  There’s no doubt that a 15″ laptop could be included with all these other devices at the same time. 

travelon messenger bag There’s more – the bag has Smart phone pocket and a mesh pocket that expands to hold a water bottle.  Carrying the bag around is made easy as you can wear it over one shoulder or across your body.  Alternatively, you can carry it by its handle at the top.

All-in-all – the bag measures 16 x 11 x 4.25 inches with having a 16-22 inch shoulder strap drop.  Minus the shorts and hat – doesn’t the bag look stylish even on a teen?!

Our Thoughts

We love this bag.  We can carry whatever we need in it.  It’s padded well so there’s not a worry that our devices won’t be protected.  The padded strap makes carrying it on/over the shoulders comfortable.  We don’t need to pack up multiple bags if we’re going someplace together.  The convenience of being able to store a water bottle on the outside makes it easy to get to.   There’s an outer pocket, where you can keep items that you use frequently, at your fingertips.  And when we’re out and about – we know our personal information is safe from predators.

Should you prefer a different style of a messenger bag – goinstyle.com has several to choose from!

+LIFEGUARD MINI 1 Portable Charger Review

+lifeguard power bank

A common problem in our home is that we are always forgetting to charge our devices.  It’s a never ending situation.  The teen is most famous for not charging her cell and I am most famous for insisting she have it on her when she leaves the house.  That said, on occasion I tend to forget to charge mine too.  And the last phone I had – oh dear, that thing drained in just hours and at the most inopportune times.  And then there’s the iPod – that always seems to get charged…(wanna tell me how that works?).

This is where we find a powerbank to come in extremely handy.  Of course, these need to be kept charged too; and I have delegated myself to be in charge of that over caring about charging my phone.  It’s imperative that before the teen runs out the door I ask about her cell being charged, and if it’s not, I hand her the powerbank.


  • Smart plug & play Samsung grade A cell battery.
  • Real 3000mAh capacity – full charge your phone and still have juice.
  • Quick charge – get your device 100% charged in 1.5 to 2.5 hours.
  • Free 5.9in Apple compatible lightning cable – LIMITED TIME ONLY.
  • Tough aluminum shell makes it impact resistant.

+LIFEGUARD’s confidence in the MINI 1 is backed by its 18-month money-back guarantee. Feel safe to buy the +LIFEGUARD MINI 1 and enjoy your cell phone more than ever.

So we put this baby to the test.  It charged our cells and the iPod with no issue. That said, when I went to charge my Samsung tablet, it appeared as though as it was charging then the next thing I knew it was beeping. I unplugged the powerbank and the beeping stopped.  It appeared as though the powerbank was out of juice, as when I plugged it in to charge it, the red light appeared.  This is a rather nice feature, because if you think you’re charging your device and it’s not charging – you’ll know it.

The +Lifeguard mini 1 portable charger powerbank comes in three (3) colors – black, pink and white and can purchase be purchased at Amazon.com
