I have really gotten into portable power sources since our ranch does not have power, and I find myself working out there at least once a week. My needs have grown quite a bit from a simple extra battery to charge my phone, and the Bluetti EB55 is the perfect companion for a camping trip or quick trip without power.
The robot vacuum space is full of many options with many features. These devices make the busy lives we live today more convenient, cutting down cleaning times. ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI is one of the most advanced all-around cleaning systems available; vacuuming and mopping have never been this easy!
I just spent two weeks driving a brand new Tesla Series 3. I didn’t purchase or lease the car, and it wasn’t a rental, at least not in the traditional sense. I spent two weeks with a Tesla Series 3 to check out FINN’s new automotive subscription service, and I was impressed.
I’ve made no secret of my love of Master & Dynamic headphones. So when the company released their Master & Dynamic MG20 Gaming Headphones, I knew I wanted to check them out. And while the MG20 is designed for gaming, as we will discuss, they aren’t just for gamers.
In my Nomad Base One Max review, I commented that potential buyers need to be aware that it requires a 30W AC wall adapter to work wirelessly and that one isn’t included. I also wrote that I’d love an additional charging port on the back. The new Nomad 65W AC Wall Adapter (largely) addresses both of those concerns.
I recently reviewed the EcoFlow Delta Max portable power station. The battery system is a true game-changer for anyone needing portable backup power. Without a power source to charge the battery, it becomes somewhat limited. Enter the EcoFlow 400W Solar Panel. This lightweight, robust solar panel keeps the Delta Max powered and ready for action.
If you are using an Amazon Alexa smart speaker to control your home’s various connected features, adding an Alexa-enabled smart display to the mix seems like the obvious next step. Built with the user’s privacy in mind, the Amazon Echo Show 15 is a convergent device that functions not only as an elegant touchscreen smarthome hub but also as a convenient family communication center, a mesmerizing 15.6″ digital photo frame, a helpful cooking companion, a smart speaker, a movie and video entertainment center, a home security camera, and more!
Some weeks ago, Nomad introduced the Base One, a beautiful Qi wireless charger specifically designed for Apple’s iPhone and its MagSafe Charging system. Now they’ve introduced the Base One’s “big brother.” The Nomad Base One Max is everything I love about the Base One, but it’s even more convenient because it has a built-in Apple Watch charger.
We’ve covered quite a few vaporizers on Gear Diary, and many of them feature exciting new battery technology or fancy heating elements. But sometimes, it’s fun to get back to the most basic concept of vaporizing — heating material until it gives off a vapor. You don’t need batteries or a fancy heating system with the Vapman Classic, just a torch lighter and some patience!
With its unique, oversized Hasselblad-branded camera array, large capacity battery, super-fast recharging capabilities, top-of-the-line processor, and brilliant 6.7″ display, the OnePlus 10 Pro might be the perfect marriage of utility and style. Read on to see if this latest OnePlus is the upgrade you’ve been waiting for.
One of the greatest things about true wireless earbuds is that they’ve become incredibly diverse, and they are available at just about any price point with multiple feature sets. And now you don’t need to wince at spending a few hundred on earbuds when you can get a solid listening and call experience for less money without giving up extra features like noise cancellation, as we’ve seen with the Phiaton BonoBuds!
Living in a region affected by hurricanes and the recent power outages during the snow last season in Texas, backup power is a genuine concern. We also have a travel trailer that we often use without any electric hookups. The EcoFlow DELTA Max is a portable power station offered in up to a 2016Wh capacity capable of powering most of our home appliances and electronics, at least for a time.
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.
My MacBook Pro is the most powerful computer I’ve ever owned. Most of the time, it serves as my desktop computer, but there are times I want to take it with me. Thankfully, Incase has released their Textured Hardshell in Woolenex and Hardshell Case for the 14″ 2021 MacBook Pro; both promise to keep my laptop looking brand new.
There are a shocking number of choices available for headphones right now — over the ear, in-ear, true wireless, fitted for weird ears, fitted for normal ears, fitted for ears you wish were weirder — as I said, there are a lot of options. The Cleer Alpha Adaptive Active Noise Cancelling Headphones look fantastic and have an over-the-ear form factor, but are they good enough to stand out in a sea of headphone choices?
My wife’s and my busy lives can make it hard to keep up with daily cleaning. We also have two dogs, including our labrador Lola who makes a mess and sheds plenty. I recently tried the Neabot NoMo Q11 Robot Vacuum in our den, which is where my family spends most of our time. Let’s take a look at this self-emptying robot vacuum.
Realme has built a loyal following by offering higher-end features not generally found on moderately priced smartphones, and with the realme GT 2 Pro, they’ve created a true flagship that won’t break the bank. Loaded with features, including the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile platform, a large AMOLED display with an adaptive 1~120Hz refresh rate, a massive battery, and plenty of RAM, the GT 2 Pro is one of the best Android smartphone options available anywhere.
Infinix has impressed us several times with its affordable, stylish, and powerful Android phones. Now they’re taking things to the next level with the Infinix Zero 5G, their first 5G Android device! Sure, it’s got a speedier connection, but does it live up to the high bar set by its predecessors? Read on to find out!
When I first started getting into merino wool clothing, I was a purist and only purchased clothing made from 100% merino wool. Recently I’ve discovered companies that do some magic with fabrics that, while not 100% merino wool, offer all the same benefits with fewer downsides. Artilect is one of those companies, and it is doing some interesting things.
My first Escort radar detector was a boxy black contraption that had a volume dial, analog radar signal strength meter, highway/city toggle switch, and an alert light on its front … and that’s it. Thirty-six years later, I’ve got the Escort MAXcam 360c in for review. This current generation Escort may still be a bit of a boxy black contraption, but it offers useful features above and beyond simply detecting police radar that can help improve a driver’s situational awareness and safety, both on the road and in some cases, even when their vehicle is parked.
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Nomad‘s products. Their cables are among the best you can purchase, and their cases have saved my iPhone and iPad more often than once. Their charges are also excellent, and their most recent offering, the Nomad Base One MagSafe Charger, is their most refined yet. It’s beautiful… and that’s just the beginning.
