Just Mobile AluBase Wireless: Up to 10W of High-Speed Charging Depending on Your Device

If you have an Android phone, you’ll generally know when fast charging is occurring because an on-screen message lets you know. On the iPhone, the only way to tell that fast wireless charging is occurring is to observe how quickly your phone charges during a time period (no, really). Apple fast wireless charging happens at 7.5W and Samsung’s happens at 10W; the Just Mobile AluBase Wireless can handle both.

Nanoleaf Canvas Is Gorgeous Kinetic Art That Adds Brilliance to Any Space

Nanoleaf made a name for themselves with their color-changing triangular-shaped Light Panels back in 2016.

Harman Kardon Citation ONE Is the Start of Your Smart Multi-Room Speaker System

For years the multi-room audio market was owned by Sonos. Amazon chipped away at that a bit by giving their Echo speakers multi-room functionality. Sonos responded by adding Alexa to their speakers. Well, things are changing, and Harman Kardon’s new Citation line of speakers is ready to give both a run for their money; the entry-level Citation ONE is superb.




Get a Great Down Jacket Courtesy of Outdoor Vitals

1More’s Wireless Bluetooth Headphones Are Stylishly Designed & Sound Incredible

We’ve reviewed products from 1More before, and we’ve been impressed by the quality of their audio products, mostly because of the Dual-Dynamic drivers that many of their headphones have.

Master & Dynamic USB-C to 3.5mm Audio Cable Is a Great Accessory

Greg turned me on to Master and Dynamic headphones at CES a few years ago. He loved the MW60 wireless over-the-ear headphones he reviewed. The company sent me a pair, and I agree; they’re awesome. Their $49 USB-C to 3.5mm Audio Cable is great when I need a wired connection to my iPad Pro.


Keep Your Liquids Cold for Hours with the Hydro Flask

When I’m heading out to the gym, to work, or just about anywhere, chances are I have a water bottle with me.
