We recently reviewed the Alcatel 3V. It’s a large, impressive Android phone for under $150. If, however, you want to spend even less but still get a decent Android device, check out the Alcatel 1X. The 5.3” display is on the small side, and it runs Android Oreo Go Edition, but it is surprisingly good.
Not everyone needs or wants earphones that overemphasize or distort audio content. I see so many listening devices that manipulate sound in some form or fashion but some folks just need a good set of affordable reference in-ear monitors. That is where the new Brainwavz M2 IEM Noise Isolating Earphones fit the bill.
Bose is often regarded as the go-to choice for noise-canceling headphones and earbuds and their recent QuietComfort 20 headphones are no exception. Boasting one of the most comfortable headphones I’ve worn in years, they offer truly impressive noise-cancellation.
For the longest time, it seemed like the portable speaker trend was headed toward smaller and more compact speakers, but you know what? Big spaces need big sound, and that’s just what you’ll get with the Braven BRV-XXL. It’s not a small speaker by any means, but the sound it puts out makes bringing it along worth it!
Did you put in an order for the Tesla Model 3? I know two people who did, and I’ll admit that I’m a little jealous. What seemingly obvious feature did Tesla forget? Wireless charging! How do you fix that? With the Nomad Tesla 3 Wireless Charger, of course!
Are you looking for a high-capacity battery pack that can charge your laptop, tablet, DSLR camera, phone, and almost anything else you might carry? Take a look at the redesigned Goal Zero Sherpa 100AC Power Pack. It has two USB Type-C ports, 2 USB Type-A ports, an AC outlet, wireless charging, and it includes all the cables you might need!
Recently we enjoyed the new Surf waterproof Bluetooth speaker from ION Audio, but for those times when we want to enjoy the patio or entertain friends or family, the pool may not be an option. Introducing the Tiki Sounds Outdoor Illuminated Speaker system.
We recently looked at the Scosche MagicMount Pro Charge and the Speck Presidio Mount Case designed to take advantage of its magnetic wireless charging. The Scosche BoomBottle MM is part of the same line. It is a Bluetooth waterproof speaker with magnets to hold an iPhone in a Speck Presidio Mount or attached steel plates in place; it’s awesome.
Summer is all about spending time by the pool, hanging out on the back deck, travel, and camping. The TYLT Block Party gives you a way to stay charged while outdoors while enjoying your favorite music. The Block Party is a combo portable Bluetooth speaker and 20,000mAh battery that can charge up to four devices at the same time.
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.
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.
Even the latest phones don’t usually have enough battery to go through the entire day if you are a heavy phone user like myself. Even if you aren’t a heavy user, you likely still carry a battery and cable just in case you need to top off. Does the Thinium Recharge [+]2.0 fit the bill of convenience? Let’s find out.
It’s easy to forget as our gadgets go wireless that sometimes wired has a place. I haven’t reached for wired headphones in a long time, and using the Brainwavz B200 made me realize I’ve been seriously missing out!
With pools opening this weekend for Memorial Day, if you are looking for a great Bluetooth speaker to take with you poolside, to the beach, or even near the grill, you should check out the Blitzwolf BW-AS1 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker.
If you have less than three things that require USB charging sitting on your desk, then I’m impressed with your minimalism! My electronics tend to sit in a “charging pile”; it’s neither pretty nor visually efficient. Now that I have the udoq400, there is no more charging pile; I can see and use my devices as they charge.
If you’re now the proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+, then there are two accessories that we recommend to help protect your shiny new toy and to extend its battery life.
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?
If you travel overseas, power strips and adapters are necessary. Since most of the devices we travel with anymore can be charged via USB cable, you can save a lot of room by packing a multi-port USB charger and a couple of standalone adapters. Oneadaptr FLIP makes that huge British 3-prong adapter slim and packable.
What do you get when you combine sleek British styling with award-winning wireless audio? The RHA MA Wireless Series. These premium wireless Bluetooth in-ear headphones offer 12 hours of playback time to last all day long. With two price points starting at $99.95, the RHA MA Wireless Series is the perfect landing spot for anyone looking for collar-style Bluetooth headphones.
Today, Mobvoi Inc, backed by Google and Volkswagen, launched their new truly wireless headphones, the TicPods Free on Indiegogo. The AI-powered earbuds are compatible with any mobile assistant across multiple mobile devices. If you back them during their pre-sale campaign, you’ll be able to cop these headphones for only $59, much cheaper than the anticipated retail price of $129.
