Anker 735 Charger (Nano II 65W) Review: Small but Powerful

When Apple stopped including AC wall adapters with their products, it was a callous attempt to maximize profits further. At the same time, Apple also unlocked the creativity of companies that stepped in and filled the void. The new Anker 735 Charger (Nano II 65W) is one example of a third-party solution; this foldable wall charger has three ports and offers a maximum output of 65W!









Ekster Aluminum Cardholder Review: A Minimalist’s Dream

Some months ago, my friend David turned me on to Ekster wallets. He had just gotten one and loved it. Soon after, I got an Ekster Parliament Wallet, and I’ve also become a fan. Now they’ve released the Ekster Aluminum Cardholder. It’s excellent and has a few unique features I love; it’s also currently on sale.



Artilect Review: Offers a New Take on Merino Wool Base Layers

Satechi Pro Hub Max Review: Your 14″ MacBook Pro Needs This

Apple may have reintroduced some extra ports with the new MacBook Pro line, but these laptops are still not as port-rich as they used to be. The Satechi Pro Hub Max is a convenient way to get back some if not all of the ports you might need so you can focus on your work.

FEND Airway Cleansing Mist Review: Should It Be Part of Your Arsenal Against Covid?
