Bluetooth Transmitters or the New Life of Old Devices

We live in a wireless world and try to get rid of the annoying cords and wires which are absolutely everywhere. The majority of modern devices are equipped with the wireless technologies that allow to pair them with other devices in some seconds. The most popular form of transmission for modern computers and smartphones is the Bluetooth transmission.

The Bluetooth transmitters are comparably new devices that allow bringing a new life to your old devices. The main task of these devices is to convert your old devices which are nor equipped with the Bluetooth into the modern wireless devices. For example, you can use these transmitters for your computer and use it in pair with the computer mouse or keyboard that are equipped with Bluetooth.

Bluetooth transmitters are small and very portable, you can easily plug them to any device you need to turn into wireless, it can be a stereo system, desktop computer or anything else. The main disadvantage of these devices is that they have the comparably short range of the signal. For example, if you put this device inside your room and go outdoors, you will not be able to connect to it. The same situation will be even if you will be on a different floor inside your house. Because of this, to maximally enjoy the good work of these devices it is recommended to set everything in one place where you are going to use it.

You can use the Bluetooth transmitter with your computer speakers (that are not wireless) and enjoy listening to your favorite songs. Also, with these devices, you can listen to music from the desktop computer on your Bluetooth headphones.

Bluetooth connection. More pros or cons?

First of all, taking into account the permanently rising number of devices enabled Bluetooth, the answer to the question “Does Bluetooth connection has more pros or cons?” becomes clear, of course, the number of pros is higher. The list of Bluetooth advantages is long, so in this paragraph, we are going to consider the three of them. So, three main advantages of the Bluetooth connection are:

  1. With the Bluetooth connection, you are able to transfer files between different devices. For example, you don’t have to use the USB drive or that annoying long cords to transfer photos from your smartphone to the laptop. Also, you are able to set a connection between several different computers for files exchange. In case, if you, for example, have a laptop with the Bluetooth connection and a desktop computer without it, the Bluetooth transmitter comes into play. By using this transmitter with your computer you will be able to different files between these two devices without any cords.
  2. With the Bluetooth transmitters, you can use tethering in order to connect your devices. You can also do this by using a Wi-Fi or a hotspot but with the Bluetooth, it can be faster and easier. Also, this saves the consumption of your smartphone’s battery.
  3. The third advantage of Bluetooth connection is probably the best for many users. You can add various accessories to your devices by using this type of connection. For example, you are able to use pair keyboards, computer mice, headphones, printers, MPS players, speakers and other devices by using a Bluetooth. In a case, if some of your devices don’t have this type of connection, just plug a Bluetooth transmitter to them and use them as the Bluetooth enabled devices. Simple, fast, and convenient.

To sum up everything mentioned here about Bluetooth connection and Bluetooth transmitters, we want to claim that if you once tried all the convenience of it, you will never use wires, cords, and plugs again.

A Bit from the Bluetooth Transmitter History

The technology called “Bluetooth” appeared in a far 1989 and was created by a group of the three scientists working for Ericsson Mobile. Many people wonder why the name “Bluetooth” was given to this technology. This word is a derivative from the king of the tenth century – Harald “Blatand” Gormsson who was famous for uniting the Danish tribes and had a nickname “Bluetooth”. Actually, this word means “union” as this technology, as we all know, allows us to connect and “unite” different devices without using any cords. There are a lot of versions of why did the king have so strange nickname. Some people say that it was because of his bad tooth which had a blue color, while another claim that it was so because the king was always dressed in blue. Anyway, we will never know the truth and have to put up with it.

In eight years after the invention of a Bluetooth technology, Intel company signed a contract with the scientists and inventors to market this new technology and launched it to the public one year later, in 1998. For all people, it was something absolutely new and it took them a while to understand the major differences between the Wi-Fi and this technology. Nevertheless, when people learned these differences, the technology got a high demand and nowadays is installed in each new device produced in a modern market.
