I love the myCharge Hub Series charger. True story, Raina stole mine, and the company was kind enough to send me my own. They also sent me their new myCharge MAG-LOCK MagSafe Powerbank; it serves a different purpose than the Hub Series, and I’m quite pleased to have the 6000mAh version in my gear bag.

I’ve never been a PopSocket person; when you shove your phone into your pockets as often as I do, you don’t generally want anything that makes the phone any bulkier than necessary. However, as phones have gotten bigger, the argument for something that provides a grip and a stand becomes stronger. PopSocket has decided to jump into the crowded case market with their new PopSocket PopCase that claims to solve both my issues. Does it work? Read on to find out!
Are you looking for a great pair of true wireless earbuds? If so, you’re going to love the Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro! They hit the sweet spot in size, features, and price! These flagship earbuds feature HearID active noise cancellation that automatically monitors outside ambient noise levels in real-time and in-ear pressure to tailor noise cancellation to match the situation. Add coaxial drivers, an ergonomic design, IPX4 water resistance, up to 32 =-hours battery life with the charging case, and a price well under $200, and you’ll see why the Liberty 3 Pro earbuds look like a winner!
Usually, when I write a review, I end up liking, disliking, or feeling ambivalent about the product. Even when a product isn’t something I need or might use, I can understand the target audience and give it a fair review. Even so, I’ve struggled while reviewing the Wristcam for Apple Watch, but not for the usual reasons.
Nomad makes some of the best cases for the iPhone; in fact, their Rugged Leather Case has saved my iPhone from drops countless times. It should be no surprise that their iPhone 13 lineup is impressive. The new Nomad iPhone 13 cases feature built-in MagSafe magnets and come with a new, killer feature — NFC Digital Business Cards! With a Digital Business Card, you’ll never need to worry about carrying business cards again. Here’s a close look at the new Nomad iPhone 13 case models.
You might feel like you have charger plugs all over the place, but do you have one in your travel kit exactly when you need it? And is it powerful enough to cover all your smartphone charging needs? Admit it; you’re not 100% sure now. It’s ok; the folks at Anker have your back with their new Anker Nano Pro plug.
Earbuds seem to keep getting better, and with the addition of active noise cancellation, they can allow users to just disappear in their audio. The Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro with targeted active noise cancellation fits the bill. Great sounding with long battery life and plenty of features make these a perfect option for any situation.
Nomad’s wireless chargers are among the best on the market. They combine elegant design with luxury materials and look great anywhere. They recently announced their new Nomad Base Station Mini Magnetic Wireless Charger. It is small. It is powerful. And it works with Apple’s MagSafe charging system to auto-align the phone, so you get optimal charging every time.
Conference calls are a fact of life, whether you work in a cubicle, a corner office, a home office, or a camper van on the road. During calls, it is important to hear, be heard, and be able to interact naturally as the conversation flows. That’s not always possible on a phone or laptop, especially when you have multiple people on your end of the call. The Beyerdynamic PHONUM Wireless Bluetooth Speakerphone can help with that.
The MW07 was Master & Dynamic’s first true wireless earphones. The new Master & Dynamic MW08 Sport are active noise-canceling true wireless earphones that build on their predecessors’ success and take on-the-go audio to new heights. They look similar to the excellent MW08 that came before them, but they pack in numerous improvements.
It seems that most devices I use as of late are charged via USB-C. From my phone to laptop and everything in between, one charging solution works for them all. I often find myself stranded in various places needing to charge, so having another charging option strong enough for everything, including my laptop, is a game-changer; the Eggtronic Sirius 65W Universal Charger does just that.
We’ve known Nomad to create some of the best ways to charge, protect and connect your phones. Now they’ve come out with two new products that take protection to a minimum. The new Nomad Leather Skin and NomadScereen Protectors for the iPhone 12 Series promise excellent protection without the bulk.
Jabra offers some of the best true wireless earphones available. Now they are taking their technological wizardry in a new direction. The new Jabra Enhance Plus true wireless earbuds deliver hearing enhancement, music, and calls in a state-of-the-art miniaturized true wireless earbud. They were specifically engineered to help people with mild-to-moderate hearing loss with a new design and special functionality.
A few weeks ago, I reviewed one of Nomad’s new AirTag accessories, and more than once, it has already helped me locate my keys. Today we’ll take a look at their latest AirTag accessories, the Nomad Leather Keychain for AirTag and the Nomad Glasses Strap for AirTag. Both look great, but more importantly, both options offer handy ways to incorporate AirTags into your everyday items to help keep track of your stuff. The fact that AirTags are basically useless without accessories like this is troubling, but thankfully, Nomad has stepped up.
We test a lot of earbuds around here. We also test a lot of fitness equipment. In a slightly strange crossover, we’re taking a look today at the Amazfit PowerBuds Pro, which combines quality headphones with fitness tracking. Are these the ultimate in workout headphones? Let’s dive in and find out!
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been testing the Movo MA5L; it’s an omnidirectional condenser microphone that plugs into a Lightning port so that it will work with iPhones and older iPads. It promises to make your Zoom calls sound a bit clearer for the person listening, but there is a major caveat that you should consider before purchasing this particular model.
Let’s say that you are going on a weekend trip, and you want to make are that you’ll be able to keep your laptop, phone, and tablet charged without bringing a bunch of extra cables and wall adapters. What if that trip happens to be somewhere remote without easy access to power from wall outlets. What would you pack? If you’re looking for the easiest, most powerful, and most portable power solution, my suggestion would be the Omnicharge Omni Mobile 25600.
Nomad has been on a roll releasing accessories that work with Apple’s MagSafe Mount. In April, they released a horizontal MagSafe Mount. Reviews were excellent but often included a request — people wanted a vertical version, so they could see their iPhone while it wirelessly charged. The new Nomad MagSafe Mount Stand has just been announced; it allows you to view your mounted iPhone either horizontally or vertically.
I’ve pretty much gone all-in with MagSafe for iPhone, and I’m discovering an entirely new range of accessories that make using my iPhone 12 Pro even more convenient. The $39.99 Twelve South Forte for iPhone with MagSafe is one such accessory. It offers clean lines and an adjustable viewing angle. You will, however, need to supply your own MagSafe charger.
As I noted in my recent review of Moment’s MagSafe mount accessories, I’ve recently developed an appreciation for Apple’s MagSafe charging system. Those mounts do a great job of holding your iPhone, but they don’t address the need to charge your iPhone while it’s mounted. The Nomad Leather Cover for MagSafe Charger does.
Scosche has released a simple accessory that takes your MagSafe Charger in new directions; the Scosche MagicMount for MagSafe Charger is a unique solution that lets you mount and use your MagSafe Charger in the car. Whether you mount it on your windshield or dashboard, the MagicMount will keep your phone in view and, when you arrive at your destination, fully charged.
