When you think of vaporizers, outdoor use and weather-friendliness might not be the first features you’d require. But if you’re interested in a vaporizer that can withstand splashes and dirt, that can handle extreme heat or cold, one that looks like a rugged little tank and that comes with plenty of accessories, then you should check out the Vapium Summit+.
If ‘mass-produced with inexpensive components’ doesn’t sound like something you’d be interested in when considering your next set of headphones, then you’ll be pleased to know that you have options. Aëdle’s VK-2 Legacy Dynamic High-Performance On-Ear Headphones are designed and assembled by hand with quality materials in small batches; their look is refined yet striking, but how do they sound?
If you aren’t happy with Apple’s Lightning Earpods, don’t want to use their clumsy adapter, don’t want to go wireless, but also don’t want to spend a fortune on new earphones, you will want to check out the Scosche IDR300L Increased Dynamic Range Earbuds with Lightning Connector. At just $79.99 they are affordable, comfortable, and sound surprisingly good.
If you’re not enamored with the simple design of Apple’s watchbands or if you’d rather not spend $49, X-Doria has a great option for you. X-Doria’s Action Bands have a cool dual-color design and are made of soft, comfortable silicon with metal clasp and buckle. Best of all, they’re about $15 cheaper than Apple’s bands, at $34.95.
I’ve long been a fan of Jabra headsets. The Jabra Elite Sport which Greg reviewed here is my current favorites for running. And, as I was setting up a new home office I was excited to see the release of the Jabra Evolve 75 headphones. I was thrilled to get a pair for review and am truly impressed by them.
When Apple joined the chorus of companies moving to USB-C, I knew I’d be needing new adapters and cables. I bought some of Apple’s when I got my new MacBook Pro, but they are priced ridiculously. Thankfully, Satechi is releasing a range of adapters and cables that are priced well; the Satechi Aluminum Type-C to HDMI Adapter is one example.
I recently reviewed the BRAVEN Stryde 360 Bluetooth Speaker. (Read the review.) It is under $100, is waterproof, and delivers good sound regardless of where you go. If, however, you want big sound that gets even bigger thanks to “BRAVEN Boost,” you will want to check out the BRAVEN BRV-BLADE. It looks serious and delivers sound in keeping with appearances.
I purchased the very first speaker from Braven. It was decent enough, and since then the company has come a long way. Braven’s current lineup of speakers have style, sound great, and are built for the real world. This is especially true of new Braven Stryde 360 Bluetooth speaker. At just $99.99, this little waterproof speaker is impressive.
You might remember my Nomad Leather Folio for the iPhone 7 Plus review; well, if you loved the idea of a Horween Leather wallet case for your phone, but you happen to have the beautiful new Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a Nomad Leather Folio Wallet just for you!
It seems as if USB-C is going to be the wave of the future, and with that being the case, a lot of traditional devices that came with USB 3.0 will be all but obsolete in the not-so-distant future. This includes the external hard drives that we use today.
If you work outdoors, or you just like to spend a lot of time outside, you know that there are mini disasters that can occur which are out of your control. Dirt, wetness, and fumbling resulting in drops are to be expected, and not every phone can handle that kind of abuse. The AT&T LG X Venture, however, can.
Based out of Philadelphia, Copper Spirits send me over two of their rare and fine spirits to check out: The Slow and Low Rock & Rye, and their Hochstadter’s 1884 Family Reserve Straight Rye Whiskey. And as a bourbon and whiskey lover, it’s worth mentioning, these are two of my new favorites, for different reasons.
Minimalism is in, and one of the best places to start scaling back on all the crap you own (or carry) is in your own back pocket. Rather than carrying a wallet stuffed with bills, receipts, cards, and who knows what else, you could be carrying a PITAKA New, a magnetic modular Carbon Fiber Wallet.
I recently “renovated” my home office. It now has a new 13” MacBook Pro, an UPLIFT standing desk from HumanSolution, a big beautiful monitor from AOC and AudioEngine HD3 Bookshelf speakers. Key to this setup, however, is the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD with Cable. At $349.99 it is pricey, but it turns my laptop into an amazing desktop.
Summertime is here. That means more time outside enjoying all that the great outdoors has to offer. It also means fewer pockets. And THAT means more opportunities for your iPhone to get dropped, damages or soaked. Thanks to the BodyGuardz Trainr Pro Case with Unequal Technology you don’t need pockets, and you don’t need to worry.
Nothing says summer like a new pair of shades. If you’re looking for a great pair of American-made luxury sunglasses, look no further than STATE Optical Co. They are super high quality, beautifully designed, and made in Chicago. Fighting against notorious eyewear mega-corporations like Luxottica, STATE Optical is a breath of fresh air in a crowded market.
Do you have pets? Do you live in a dusty area? Do you have a smoker (or vaper) in your family? Do you have seasonal allergies? Are you or a family member an asthma sufferer? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you would benefit by having an Oreck Air Response Air Purifier in your home.
There are many Bluetooth speaker options out there. Most offerings are a single speaker to make them easy to carry. The KNZ GoDuo brings a unique design allowing for single carry portability as well as stereo sound. The successful Kickstarter campaign still has early bird options available for $79; let’s take a look.
It’s not very often that I open a box and have to stop what I’m doing to inhale the fragrant smell of fine leather wafting as I unwrap the contents, but that’s exactly what happened when I recently opened a package from Galen Leather. What was inside the box? Beautiful cases for my iPhone, 12″ MacBook, and 13″ MacBook Pro.
Human Solution recently sent a number of products for review. I’ll be looking at their dedicated UPLIFT desk in a future review but, for this first in the series, I wanted to look at their impressive UPLIFT Adapt Height Adjustable Standing Desk Converter. For just over $200, it converts almost any desk into a sit-stand desk.
If you need to carry a high-capacity external drive with you when you travel or go to work, you’ll likely be interested in making that memory device as small as possible. Take a look at the Western Digital My Passport SSD; it’s 1 Terabyte, rated for 515MB/s, and it measures just 3.6″ long by 1.8″ wide by 0.4″ thick.
