Monster Power & Charging Station with Phone and Tablet Stand Review

Can you ever have enough plugs or places to top off your gadgets? The answer to that question is no, always no. One of the places I usually come up short is in the kitchen; the Monster Power & Charging Station has tidied up my former snarl of chargers, cables, and remedied a chronic shortage of outlets.


Oneadaptr EVRI 45W USB-C Car Charger: Enough Power for Your MacBook

All car chargers are alike. Right? Wrong. Just as different USB wall chargers can push out varying amps of power, so can car chargers. The Oneadaptr EVRI 45W USB-C Car Charger has a Type-C port that is powerful enough to charge your MacBook while it charges your mobile device.


Android O Is Now Available for the ZTE Axon 7

  Due to popular demand – specifically demand from the Axon 7 user community, an Android O update has arrived. ZTE is making their Android Oreo update available in beta for users who register through their Z-Community.


VogDUO Charger Pro 3-Port USB Wall Charger Is Thin and Ready to Charge

I have a Waterfield SFBags pouch I keep in whatever bag I am carrying any given day. Inside are some Nomad cables, an external battery, some adapters and a pair of Lighting earbuds. The VogDUO Charger Pro 3-Port USB Wall Charger is a new addition to the pouch. Thin and light, it has three different speedy ports.


The ZTE Axon M Is Literally a Two Faced Phone!

In the war that is Android versus iOS, Android has one advantage- flexibility. Android devices aren’t bound by the “closed garden” of Apple products. This leads to some neat innovations. (After all, Android gave us phablets!) Thus we have the new ZTE Axon M.


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.


Phiaton BT 390 Brings Big Sound in a Small Package

Wireless headphones have become a staple in my life and I love getting great sound. Over the ear options are often pretty bulky, so luckily Phiaton has released the BT 390 Compact headphones ($79.99). These smaller headphones fold up for easy carry but do not disappoint with the audio quality. Let’s take a look. 



The Braven Ready Elite Can Easily Handle the Great Outdoors

It’s hard to talk about pool parties and camping trips when many of us are still waiting on at least one more winter storm, but spring is coming — and gone are your excuses to stay inside. The Braven Ready Elite is ready for all of your upcoming outdoor adventures; it’s waterproof, shockproof, and it gives 12-hour battery life.

The phone will be available starting February 18th at Amazon, BestBuy, Microsoft, Newegg, and B&H.

Monster Airlink Elements: Jewelry in Your Ear, Jewelry You Can Hear

Among the many headphones and wireless speakers that we saw at Monster’s CES booth, was a small display with three pairs of truly wireless in-ear headphones. They were all similar in style, but one set was aimed towards work-outs. The other two sets were what we were eyeing, though; one look at the Monster Airlink Elements, and we were smitten.


The Totallee Thin iPhone X Case Is TRULY Thin

I like cases that are thin but offer some degree of drop protection. Still, when Totallee invited us to check out their thin iPhone X case, I was game. The case is a textbook case in thin. While it doesn’t protect your iPhone in a drop, it does provide scratch protection while letting your iPhone’s industrial design shine through.


Nomad’s iPhone Cases are Ready for their New Wireless Hub

Nomad just announced their new USB Wireless Hub. It looks amazing, and you can read Judie’s review here. Nomad also makes a range of amazing iPhone cases that are ready to work with the new $79.95 hub. They offer a variety of designs and great protection.  All of them are impressive and there’s something for everyone! They are also affordable.


KnowRoaming Is Ideal for Connected Globetrotters

When we first “met” KnowRoaming, a service committed to making global connectivity simple and inexpensive; they offered a sticker that one would place on a standard SIM card to connect when traveling. It always made me a bit uneasy. Since then, the company has greatly expanded their offerings and, when we travel this summer, we’ll be relying on them!


Nomad Wireless Hub Review: Organized Power with Wireless Charging

A few months ago I reviewed the Nomad USB Hub (which I still use every day), and now Nomad has upped their game by releasing the Nomad Wireless Hub. It’s similar in appearance to the USB Hub, yet the Nomad Wireless Hub is even more powerful and, for those of us with wirelessly charging devices, more convenient.



Modular’s MOD-1 Bluetooth Headphones Are Digital, Analog, and Wireless All in One

If you’ve never heard of Modular, they are an American-based Audio company that has taken to CES to introduce their Mod-1 Digital, Analog, and Wireless Headphones. Coming complete with an awesome design and even greater quality, the Mod-1 Headphones are a Swiss Army Knife when it comes to audio experience. With its Bluetooth technology, the Mod-1 headphones also come with a…


Plantronics BackBeat FIT 500 Headphones Quick Look

Some time ago I reviewed the Plantronics BackBeat 500 on-ear headphones. At under $80, they were, and are a great deal. When Plantronics sent me the BackBeat FIT 300 for review they also sent me the new, BackBeat FIT 500 on-ear headphones. They look exactly like the BackBeat 500 headphones I reviewed previously, yet there are a few important differences.
