Mophie Powerstation Plus XL: Perfect for All Portable iOS Devices

If you asked me which battery pack has been my longest-running favorite, I’d tell you it’s the mophie powerstation XL that I bought in 2017; it’s been all over the world with me several times. Now, I have a new mophie powerstation plus XL in my backpack, and since I’m predominantly on an iPhone X these days, it’s absolutely perfect.

Azpen DockAll D108 Sound Hub Wirelessly Charges Your Phone and Much More

Since getting the iPhone X, I’ve been on a mission to place wireless charging stations in each room of the house. Until now, however, the charging pads were just that, charging pads. The Azpen DockAll D108 Fast Wireless Charging Sound Hub offers wireless fast charging for Qi-enabled phones but, as the name indicates, also doubles as charging and sound hub.


Oneadaptr FLIP Family: Brilliantly Compact World Travel USB Chargers

  If you travel overseas, power strips and adapters are necessary.

Oneadaptr FLIP makes that huge British 3-prong adapter slim and packable.


Go the Distance with the Mophie Powerstation USB-C XXL External Battery

We’ve reviewed dozens of external batteries here on Gear Diary but few have offered the combination of simplicity, power and understated elegance of the mophie powerstation USB-C XXL.

Oneadaptr EVRI 80W USB-C Charging Station Review

We’ve reviewed quite a few charging stations, but never one that offered four Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 ports and a USB-C port that supports Power Delivery 2.0 Quick charge. With the Oneadaptr EVRI USB-C Charging Station, you can charge your latest-gen iPhone or iPad Pro up to two or three times faster with a USB-C to Lightning cable.






Be More Productive With the ZAGG Slim Book for the Apple 10.5″ iPad Pro

Apple’s latest commercial for the iPad Pro highlights the fact that the tablet is powerful enough, and apps sophisticated enough, that it can replace a laptop. I’m not convinced I can go without a laptop, but the ZAGG Slim Book for the Apple 10.5-inch iPad Pro certainly moves the productivity of the iPad Pro in that direction.
