These foldable Bluetooth headphones arrived just in time for the iPhone 7

With the iPhone headphone jack having gone by the wayside, we're excited about the addition of the FRANKLIN Bluetooth Headphones in our store. These headphones are foldable so they're easy to carry around, but most importantly, they pack impressive sound.

 

Our biggest struggle with Bluetooth headphones is the worry of them dying at the worst moment. This pair lasts an impressive 8-10 hours on a single charge, which is one of the best we've tried. And the fact that they are wireless is well worth the inconvenience of charging them up once in a while. They also feature a built-in microphone and controls that let you answer, end, reject, and redial.

So if you’re ready to upgrade your listening experience in addition to your iPhone, check out the FRANKLIN Bluetooth headphones - just $39.99 in our store. Read the rest

Atmos' high-end versatile vaporizer is perfect for beginners

atmos

The Vicod 5G Vaporizer is advertised as easy-to-use, and it's a really solid vaporizer for beginners. One thing that immediately impressed me was its solid construction. Unlike other vapes, Vicod feels truly high-end, like it won't just fall apart after a few uses.

You just click open the chamber, pack it, and you’re ready to go. The OLED screen even displays the temperature you’re lighting up at, and shows where the battery life stands.

Another great feature is that you can control the temperature to the degree (from 300F - 435F). This type of precision is rare and allowed me to really find my personal sweet spot for a perfect vaping experience. Thanks to the vents on both sides, I was able to create some impressively large vape clouds too.

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this little vape, which is actually conveniently compact enough to fit in my pocket. The manufacturer also offers a good 5-year warranty which adds a lot of value to the deal.

You can find it in the Boing Boing Store for just $84.95 - 34% off the original price.  Read the rest

Boing Boing's summer best-seller: The Twisty Glass Blunt

We love the Twisty Glass Blunt, and apparently so do our readers. When you’re ready to kick back and light one up, the last thing you want to do is fuss with rolling papers. And that’s why we are bringing back The Twisty Glass Blunt -- Boing Boing's most popular item of the summer.

Now we have to be honest with you. Because this product was so popular the first time around, you should expect a longer than normal shipping time to receive your device. The creators literally had to fly to China and open up a new factory because so many Twisty's were sold.

The Twisty Glass Blunt is made out of a 2mm thick German-engineered glass tube and inner corkscrew. At 5mm in length, it’s totally portable, and comes with a microfiber bag so you can take it with you wherever you go. Plus, now you can pair your Twisty with this nostalgic Pokeball grinder for just $13.95.

 

The Twisty Glass Blunt is now $34.99 in the Boing Boing store. Read the rest
