Did you know it was possible to create your very own macro lens for taking extraordinary close up photographs with your iPhone?

Smartphones are the most popular electronic devices available right now and they’re at the pinnacle of the technology industry. So it might surprise you to find out that a tiny piece of plastic could transform the way you use your phone.
It’s time to learn more about heat shrink tubing.

Inexpensive, easy to use and amazingly versatile, heat shrink tubing is an expanded piece of plastic which shrinks under contact from heat. While this material is widely used with the electrical, industrial and telecommunication industries, where it is mainly used to insulate wiring, this nifty product actually has hundreds of uses and could come in handy for you.

At Hilltop Products, we love heat shrink tubing and we use it all the time to solve everyday problems and simply make things better. Here, we’ll explain some of the ways that you could use heat shrink tubing with your smartphone.

Phone Chargers
Without a working charger, our state of the art gadgets are nothing more than glorified paperweights, so it’s a shame that smartphone chargers get damaged relatively easily. The most common affliction for phone chargers is for the connecting wire to come free from the connector. But applying a small length of heat shrink tubing over the damage and adding heat can secure the connection and prolong the lifespan of the device.

Headphone Cords
Most of us have pulled our headphones out of a pocket to find the cord tangled into a labyrinthine mess of knots. For many, this is seen as an irritation, albeit a major one, but this is actually real problem; particularly when the wiring inside the cord is damaged irreparably. One way to ensure that your cord stays tangle free is to section off the cable with heat shrink tubing. This will allow you to fold the cord up in your pocket, without the problem occurring.

Clip On Macro Lens
Finally, less a day to day tip and more an exciting new opportunity, did you know it was possible to create your very own macro lens for taking extraordinary close up photographs with your iPhone?

You can do it, using the lens from a disposable camera. Don’t have a disposable camera? Some online commentators simply asked their local photo lab for a used one. In order to create the clip to hold the lens in place, it is possible to cover a length of music wire with the heat shrink tubing and then bend into the correct shape. Heat shrink tubing helps to hold the clip in place and also prevent the wire from marking or damaging the smartphone.

These are just an example of the many diverse uses of heat shrink tubing. This versatile product is so universally handy you might wonder how you ever did without it. For more information, pay a visit to http://www.hilltop-products.co.uk/heat-shrink-tubing-range.html or call 01942 723 101.
