Have you ever been in a position where you need that quick charge, or you have a friend who has a brick for you, but their device isn’t the same as yours so you catch yourself asking strangers for a cable so you can get some extra juice to last? You no longer need to do that with Native Union’s…
For a while, backpacks and suitcases have been available that have built-in battery packs for on the go charging. The issue I’ve run into with these combo sets is that I’ve never found a backpack or suitcase that I really liked that came with built-in power. The solution?
I had the original iPad Pro but found the size a bit of a challenge. When the smaller 9.7″ iPad Pro was released, I jumped on it. It works with the Apple Pencil but is the same size and weight as the iPad Air 2. The $129.99 ZAGG Slim Book Ultra-Slim Tablet Keyboard makes my favorite iPad even better.
Whether you travel a lot or work solely at a desk, the one thing you can never have too much of are USB ports! If you have the Choetech 6-Port Desktop Quick-Charge 3.0 USB Charger, then you are set!
If you know anything about Otterbox, is that they value protecting your devices, all while showing off elements of the device it’s encasing, with little subtle things like cutouts, or clear backing for the accessories, and the Defender for the iPad Pro is no different. Otterbox sent us over their Symmetry Series Hybrid Case, which is everything Apple should’ve made…
Are you still trifling with those cheap white cables that came with your iPad or iPhone? If they haven’t already begun to fray, it’s just a matter of time. Maybe you ought to upgrade to something that’s virtually indestructible — like the Nomad Line Ultra Rugged Lightning Cable for iPhone.
Power bank manufacturers keep shoving higher capacity batteries into smaller packages for less money, and that’s great for us! At $30, the Choetech 10,400mAh Portable Power Bank is a 4″ long by 3″ wide by 1″ thick little brick that can get you through the longest of days with plenty of juice.
Not too long ago, I reviewed the Nonda ZUS Smart Car Finder and USB Car Charger. As you may have noticed in my review, it’s a great multi-function tool that I use in conjunction with its app to find my car after parking and to keep track of parking meter time limits.
How would you like a sync and charge cable that you could easily plug into your device one-handed or in the dark? How would you like a USB cable that could plug into its power source from either direction? With the ASAP Connect, this is possible.
In a span of just minutes, I may find myself switching from a task on my iPhone 6S to a different task on my iPad Pro, to a third task on my MacBook Pro, and then back again. The Kanex MultiSync Mac Keyboard was designed for people like me and, I suspect, like you.
The Libratone ZIPP was one of my all-time favorite speakers. It looked great, sounded amazing, and let you customize the look with exchangeable covers. With portable AirPlay it was as close to the perfect speaker for an iOS-user as you could find. Now Libratone has rebooted the ZIPP and they are offering the smaller, and less expensive, Libratone ZIPP MINI….
I’ve had a love/hate relationship with in-ear headphones for some time. Even when there were plenty of choices for ear tip sizes, I couldn’t always wear them comfortably (or keep them in place). But something about the over the ear design of the RHA Audio T20i Noise Isolating In-Ear Headphones makes them work for me.
When the iPhone 6S came out I went for the maximum storage, 128GB. On my 9.7″ iPad Pro I went with 128GB again despite the fact that 256GB was available. That’s a ton of storage but, with the way I am using the iPad now it actually isn’t enough. Thank goodness for the new SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive!
iClever is a purveyor of smart USB chargers, Bluetooth accessories, and more which can be purchased on their Amazon shop. They have a large line of AC adapters for mobile device charging, USB adapters for use in cars, as well as Bluetooth speakers and headphones. Read on to hear about my experience with iClever’s BoostCube series and magnetic Bluetooth headphones.
Logi BASE from Logitech is the first non-Apple iPad accessory I’ve tried that uses the new iPad Pro Smart Connector. Not only does Smart Connector work with Apple’s keyboard case so you don’t need to pair via Bluetooth but it also can serve as a charging port. That what the Logi BASE does, and it is just the beginning.
If you are in the middle of an adventure, the last thing you want to do is worry about whether your phone, which is probably serving as your navigation device and camera, will run out of juice. The Lander Cascade Universal Power Bank is a ready and able adventure companion.
The Olala S100-i is a mobile power bank with a built-in Apple MFi certified lighting cable. With 13,000 mAh battery capacity, it’s slightly larger than a wallet, so you can toss it in your travel bag and carry around enough juice to last the whole day. Read on for a coupon code to buy the S100-i for $31.99!
We have the chance to review a lot of external batteries on the site. For one to stand out these days it has to have an amazing industrial design, special features or a shockingly low price. The Moshi IonBank 10K has great industrial design and numerous special features. It’s just under $100 but, hey, two out of three ain’t bad.
Yes, Waterfield, one of my favorite bag and case companies, has done it again. The Waterfield Staad Attaché takes its cues from the Staad Backpack Judie and I reviewed some time back and brings its amazing design features to an attaché case that is small and easy to carry but large enough for your iPad Pro or MacBook Pro 13″.
In a sea of mass-produced cases for electronic devices, caseable is one company that is creating custom accessories for devices that not only use your photographs to personalize them, they are doing so right here in the US (in Berlin for their European customers), and they’re making these items– to the greatest extent possible — from recycled materials.
Over the past month, I’ve been using the most unusual iPad Pro case on the market after literally going caseless for the first two weeks of purchasing the 12.7” tablet and luckily, Moshi sent me over their iGlaze and VersaCover for the extra-large iPad, and I love it.
