Earlier this year, there was a massive power crisis in Texas that came as a result of severe winter storms, leaving over 4.5 million homes and businesses without power, many for several days.

Released last year, the Goal Zero Yeti 500X is a mid-sized rechargeable portable power station that looks much more modern that the gas-guzzling generator my mom had that would power much…
Before smartphones starting touting the massive internal batteries that they have right now, you would never catch me without a small battery pack in my back pocket.

Their first two products are the 65W 20,000mAh Lenovo Go USB-C Laptop Power Bank and the Lenovo Go Wireless Multi-Device Mouse.

Raina finally updated to an iPhone 8. She wasn’t initially interested in its wireless charging, but after I put a wireless charging pad in her home office she changed her mind.
