Let’s see how it holds up to the Friday…Read More
We’ve become used to seeing 10,000 and 20,000mAh portable batteries that cost anywhere from $50 – $100 (or more). But what if I told you that you could get a powerful 20,000mAh Orico portable battery that can charge everything from your laptop to your smartwatch for $35? You’d want one, right?
Here’s a gadget that sounds like the perfect thing to keep in the trunk of your car: the Norshire is not only a portable pressure washer and jump starter, it’s also a semi-portable mobile device battery and a hazard sign. All you have to do is keep it charged and in your trunk; when you need it, it’ll be ready.
We’re all used to convergent devices performing multiple duties versus needing separate devices for each job these days, and Norshire appears to be a product built on that premise. The kit can be used to power-wash your car, jump-start your car, serve as a warning sign when needed, and it can also function as a super-sized power bank.
Having a pet can be very therapeutic, but sometimes, your favorite four-legged friend needs a bit of TLC as well. And if you have one of those pups that can tend to be frightened come Bath time, there’s a product available you should consider purchasing. That product is called the Commbo by J-Line.
The Tutti Studio Matti is a cute, block-shaped wireless speaker with retro styling that wants to be your modern-day boombox.

You can even link up to 8 together for massive sound!
How much of your day is spent with your head bent over a screen? And how often have you awoken with a tweaked neck because your head was angled wrong as you slept on your side? It’s pretty obvious that most of us don’t give our necks the respect and care they deserve; the ComfortAdjust Pillow wants to help.
When you’re snapping photos, you can use any ol’ tripod to hold your camera steady. But when you’re filming video, holding your camera steady while you’re moving (especially when what you’re filming is also moving) can be a bit trickier. That’s where a gimbal comes in handy, but which one should you buy? One option is the Snoppa Kylin M.

I’ve found that the best way to make sure I don’t forget anything before I leave home is to have a central spot where I keep all the things I might need. Phone, keys, battery pack — all go in a bowl by the door. It’s low-tech, but it works. The Pitaka MagHive takes my strategy into the 21st century.
We’ve reviewed many portable battery packs here, but the SYNAVOLT is the first I’ve ever seen that is both expandable and modular. Currently raising funds on Indiegogo, SYNAVOLT starts with a 20,000mAh base unit; it has two slotted expansion bay ends that can handle a variety of power-enabled modular attachments.
Running is great. Music is great. Combining them can be fun, but it also creates a safety issue. X-Shock thinks they have a “bright” idea to address this with transparent, LED-equipped wireless earbuds.
It doesn’t matter which mobile phone you’re using — if you are trying to take photos or selfies by pressing an on-screen button or one of the tiny buttons on your phone’s side, you can wind up missing (or blurring) the shot. The Just Mobile ShutterGrip is set up to be an easy Bluetooth solution.
