Find Your Car via Smart Car Charger
If you have ever lost your car in a car park, then buy this nifty little charger and never again worry where you parked your car.The ZUS device is a car charger with really useful features. It is a smart car finder and USB charger. I was keen to see whether it would really work as promised.
ZUS is a smart car charger and car locator, an all in one device. ZUS is designed in Germany and produced by Nonda, a smart hardware start-up based in Palo Alto, CA. There is a smart charging function so you can charge two devices, up to twice as fast as other car chargers.
It has a lighting system so you can see where the USB sockets are when it is dark.What I really liked about the charging sockets was that I did not need to fumble around getting the USB lead into the socket. An extra wide charging slot meant that the lead fitted into the socket either way.
Bi-directional USB sockets, that do not require me to check the orientation before inserting a USB cable should really become the de facto standard for USB.
ZUS claims that its device is the only smart charger that can help you find your car. The app was easy to find on Google Play and quick to install. It is not yet available for iPhone.The ZUS connected quickly to my Android device using Bluetooth.When I parked and left the car, the app sat in the background, using phone location services. This means that the ZUS would be fabulous when travelling in other countries .I usually arrive at an airport, pick up my rental car and during the trip, often forget where I parked the car as it looks like all the rest. As ZUS uses GPS, not data, there are no roaming charges to incur whilst abroad.
