Online Retailers for Electrical Equipment


Online selling has never been more easy, as the internet allows you to use its plenty of options when you decide to start this business. You can have your own online business by selling different things, but the easiest of them is to start an activity of selling online different electrical equipment.

Hispek Electrical Equipment Retailers was first established by our CEO Alicia Chapman in 2009. This UK based company is located at Thirsk, we also have a couple of other smaller offices located around England. Alicia’s background is IT and has a master’s degree in this area. Alicia setup this business as she saw a gap in the market to invest in creating an IT electrical sales company. At the time, the recession was hitting the nation hard, so Alicia proactively set out to grow her business from scratch. Now we distribute wholesale and individually many products such as desktops, Laptops, computer hardware, marketing software and much more.

Our workforce consists of 20 sales consultants, 30 IT experts, 25 transport and delivery professionals, customer support team and 3 managers. Soon, our plans are to expand our business further to mainland Europe and possibly one day to the USA. For now, we are happy to be the market leaders in the UK.

We’re here to teach you how you can easily do this, without losing money or too much time. At Hi Spek, we know what’s important for both your business and your customers, so we can teach you everything about it.

Tech That Makes Your Life Easier

In a world where technology develops so fast, it’s almost impossible to keep up with it and be up to date with everything that appears on the market. Some things are not useful, or not for you directly, anyway; however, some things are amazing and everyone should have at least one or several from the following items that we’ll present. These are able to make your life easier, by allowing you to enjoy your free time more or to solve different tasks when you have a short timetable.

The RippleBuds
Bluetooth is a wonderful invention, but using those big and uncomfortable devices is not in trend anymore. The RippleBuds represent the smallest Bluethooth earbuds that come equipped with an in-ear microphone system. These are amazing as you can use them for voice calls or for listening to music on your smart device.

It appeared at the end of 2016, but the cost is quite expensive compared to the rest of the devices that can be used with Bluetooth.

The Wireless Glass Keyboard
Who didn’t wish at least once for a keyboard that could be connected with your smart device? Well, for those who need such a thing, the Wireless Glass Keyboard can be connected via Bluetooth and it comes with a glass that’s touch sensitive. The QWERTY keyboard is compatible with almost any device, MAC OS X, Android, iOS or Windows and it can be charged with an USB cable. The cost of this item starts at $150, depending on where you order it from.

The Best 3D Printer
It’s not a secret anymore that the 3D printers are available for regular buyers, so if you want to see the prototype of your “invention”, then Stratasys J750 is the best printer to choose. You can use it for printing realistic 3D models that are designed with different materials. You’ll also have a wide range of colors to it, like neon and neutrals, highlights and shadows and even different gradients and textures, resulting in over 360,000 colors. Specialists say that this is the best printer that can give you a photorealistic model from your plans.

The price is quite secret on the sellers’ websites, so you’ll have to ask for a quote. However, expect to take some money out of your pocket for this item.

The Fitbit Blaze
If you like working out and having a lot of physical activity, then this item should be your choice. Even if it’s quite expensive – about $200 – it’s a great smartwatch (you might want to take out insurance on it) that’s designed to improve and maximize your physical efforts. The device is able to follow your heart rate, it’s connected to GPS, it shows on-screen workouts and it has a lot more features. Listening to music or get calls and text notifications are just some of the capabilities of this device, so it’s worth its money.

New Tech Devices That You Need to Have This Year

Some things make your life easier, and without technology, sometimes it’s impossible to cope with all the tasks that you have to finish each day. It doesn’t matter if you’re at your office or on the go, the new gadgets that appear day after day have several time-saving advantages that you should really know about.

Let’s see what you can consider adding to your gadget collection.

The MicroSD Reader
The Dash-i is a new MicroSd card reader designed for iOS devices. This offers you almost unlimited capabilities for external storage. The producers say that it’s made from a special material – aircraft grade aluminum casing, and it’s small enough to attach it to your key ring and take it with you anywhere you go. This reader can support cards of different capacities, allowing you to store everything from photos to documents or music.

The Amazon Tap
If you need an portable speaker that you can connect to your smart devices via Bluetooth, then Amazon Tap is the best recommendation for you, as it is wireless. All you have to do is to tap the microphone button and simply ask for music directly from TuneIn, Pandora, Spotify or Prime Music. This amazing device uses Alexa Voice Service when it’s connected to a mobile hotspot or to a Wi-Fi connection for playing music, reading the news or providing you with the latest weather reports.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 4
For those of you who need a 2 in 1 device – a tablet and a laptop, the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is the right device for you. This will offer you the versatility of both devices and it’s available with different configurations starting from 128GB, with an Intel Core m3 of 4GB RAM, going up to a 256 GB storage with an Intel Core i7 processor of 8 GB RAM. Easy to use, it has Windows 10 OS, a 12.3 inchi PixelSense touchscreen display, and it is simple to transform it from laptop to a tablet.

Everyone seems to need more and more storage space on their laptops or computers, and if you don’t have what you need, with Innov8 it’s very easy now. This uses Ignition Boost Technology, and it’s the first 8TB USB-C-powered device for external storage solutions from the market. All you have to do is connect it to your computer and use its space for storing everything you need – for example – up to 2 million songs, 800 movies and more than 4 million photos. Pretty amazing, right?
