I reviewed Speck’s Presidio case for the iPhone 7 last year. Slimmer AND more protective, it replaced their CandyShell line. I was impressed. (Read my review.) I’m now using a Presidio case with my iPhone X, but it isn’t just any Presidio case. No, this is the Speck Presidio Mount and it works with Scosche’s MagicMount line. I love it!
As I have mentioned previously, on of the features, I like best about the iPhone X is its ability to charge wirelessly with Qi-enabled wireless chargers. The Scosche MagicMount Pro Charge takes that awesome feature to a new level with wireless, cradleless charging. And while you don’t need it, you’ll also want to pick up a Speck Presidio Mount case.

We’ve been covering RHA headphones for some time and have always been impressed. From the first pair we reviewed, the company has shown it is serious about producing headphones with great sound and impressive quality. The $69.95 MA390 Wireless is their latest offering. The neckband style headphones are affordable and will surely impress even the most discerning consumer.
When you hear the phrase “douche bag”, your mind might automatically conjure up the slang definition of “an obnoxious, offensive, or disgusting person.” Set that aside for now, okay? For this review, Douchebags is a Norwegian brand of smarter travel gear, and the Douchebags Base 15L Daypack is one of the nicest and most stylish backpacks I’ve yet tried.
I may not be the sweetest guy, but the bugs that live in my backyard don’t know that. If I go outside to work in the yard or swim in the pool, I can be sure to come back in itching from one of the many new bug bites I’ve received. Thankfully, I have the Stinger On-the-Go Insect Zapper.
With Summer in full swing, it’s time to purchase the only swimsuit you’ll need this year: Olivers Zuma Trunk. Made with stretchy, quick drying fabric, these swim trunks are versatile enough to go from running, to beach volleyball, to a midnight swim. Designed and made in Los Angeles, these are the most comfortable swim trunks you’ll ever wear.
When considering safety and security for your home, one of the top priorities has to be remote monitoring with a camera system. And if you have priced systems available today, some will leave you a bit intimidated.

Raina and I are getting ready for a trip to the Galápagos Islands next month. We are doing our best to pack wisely, and that begins with our backpacks. The Timbuk2 Lightweight Launch Backpack is the first of two backpacks we’ve received for review; the $129.00 backpack is light and ready to go.
Last year, I reviewed the BlackBerry KEYone, and I found it to be an excellent update to the BlackBerry line. A year has passed, and the BlackBerry KEY2 is now available. Should you get one?
As a member of a competitive BBQ team and lover of smoked meats, I do a lot of smoking in the summer. The big secret to great BBQ is correct temperatures and timing. ThermoWorks offers many products to make sure the temps are correct, and I recently had the opportunity to try their newest product, the $69 BlueDOT.
The newly updated Intuos pen tablet from Wacom builds on the brand’s great history of digital illustration tablets, bringing their top-tier pen-to-PC technology to an entry-level price range. With small and medium size options, wired and Bluetooth connectivity options, the Wacom Intuos is a great fit for beginners and experienced illustrators.
I’ve enjoyed reviewing “true wireless headphones” that completely cut the cord. Unfortunately, most have some issues. For example, the Rowkin Bit Charge earphones sound great but their 2-3 hour battery life is disappointing, and they can lose their stereo connection. I was curious if the Rowkin Surge Charge fixed these issue and I’m happy to report they do!
The Novoo AC Power Bank would be a fantastic sidekick for any technology-obsessed traveler who needs juice at all times. With its multiple power output options and huge battery capacity, the Novoo power bank makes it easy to keep all of your devices charged while on the go.

I’ll start this review by saying that the Huawei P20 isn’t going to be as simple to buy as most other current phones in the United States, and that’s a shame. You can’t just walk into AT&T or Verizon and get one with an easy payment plan, and let’s be real, that’s going to turn the typical cellphone buyer off.
If you have been looking for an ultra-durable, insulated, food safe backpack, look no further than MUUL and its new RuckBucket. This new rig will allow you to carry just about anything into or out of your destination – be that mountain, desert, racetrack…anywhere.
I’ve made no secret of the fact that the wireless charging on the iPhone X is one of my favorite features of Apple’s current flagship phone. I love having wireless chargers around the house, at my office, and now — thanks to the myCharge UnPlugged 10K — I can have 10,000mAh of wireless charging goodness on the go.
If you are building out your smarthome you will want to check out the $69.99 Amped Wireless Smartplug AWP138W.
