One of the things that I used do when packing to go overseas was to make sure that I had my collection of plug adapters and a bulky international power strip ready to go; these days I just make sure that I have the Oneadaptr Twist+ World Adapter DUO.
Finding a spot to plug my USB cables into is a never-ending game that gets played out every day; there are simply more cables than I have ports for, and every new generation laptop seems to come with fewer (if any at all). If you’re in the same boat, the Just Mobile AluCharge can help.
If you’ve been looking for a great start to your smart home in 2017, there’s no better way to begin than with iDevices’ ‘Smart Home Essentials’ kit.

For a time, it seemed as if every external battery was alike; they all had some sort of housing, a charging port to power up the battery and one or two ports into which a device cable could be plugged.
Charging cables are a simple fact of modern life. And while inexpensive cables abound- after all, pretty much every mobile device and accessory includes one- the right cable can make a huge difference. Nomad offers three different cables in their Ultra Rugged Cable Series, and one of them stands out as the only cable you will ever need.
Belkin sent over their MIXIT Metallic Lightning to USB iPhone Cable for us to check out, and for someone who hates attempting to plug my cable in properly, it’s been a lifesaver of the past few weeks.
One of the first things you want as a smart home user is a Smart Outlet that will work, even if you don’t have products like smart bulbs, smart hubs, etc. The ConnectSense Smart Outlet not only integrates perfectly into your home, but it’s the only one on the market with a specific set of features unseen in others.
It’s a little late for a stocking stuffer, but if you have a student you’re sending back to college after the holiday break, you might want to send them back with power — the power to keep their devices charged throughout even the longest days. For that, the Jackery Titan S is perfect.
Cheero is a company you may have seen on Amazon while searching for an accessory like a cable for your device or even a battery pack. The popular company sent us over their latest Power Plus 3 Battery Pack to check out and it’s everything it’s cracked up to be.
Having an Apple Watch is quite the struggle when you’re on the go all day, only to look down at your battery midday and it’s already low. It’s almost as bad as having a low phone battery, but what if I told you there’s a product that could eliminate low batteries on both simultaneously?
A few months ago we reviewed the FINsix Dart Laptop charger, which is a slim laptop charger that not only makes your backpack that much lighter but leaves a smaller footprint that the typical brick that comes with most laptops. So it’s no surprise that the company has announced an update, which continues on the success of the original Dart.
If your phone has inductive charging, then you already know how cool it is to be able to lay your phone down and top it off without having to connect any wires. The Pond Ripple Wireless Charger takes that cool factor and multiplies it by 10; it also operates as a beautiful portable power bank.
It may not be on most people’s wish lists, but I’ve been hoping that Apple would give the iPhone wireless charging capabilities for years. After all, many Android phones have it, and automakers are starting to include chargers for those phones in their cars. But for iPhones? No joy. The Aircharge Keyring may be a good stopgap in the meantime.
I’ve reviewed several Jackery devices in the past; they have been excellently made, and I am still using them. Jackery has a Kickstarter campaign going on now for their most ambitious device yet — the Jackery Power Pro, a 578Wh Solar Ready Outdoor Generator.
If your family is anything like ours, technology seems to have taken over. And not just in a small way, but we each have at least two devices to our names now. Keeping the batteries alive in these technological wonders is occupying more of our time as well and the new ChargeHub X7 wants to ease your burden.
I’ve just returned from IFA, and one of the most invaluable tools that I brought with me was the Jackery Titan 20,100mAh portable battery. Used with the Jackery Jewel Lightning Cable that I recently reviewed, I was never without power and I could go days without recharging the battery pack.
If you are a laptop user, and hate toting around the same old power brick that takes over way too much space (not just in your bag but in your outlet), then you should check out the FINsix Dart.
Most of us keep a charging cable (or two) in our bags or in our car, and many of us keep an extended battery pack in our bags. Sometimes it’s a bit much to carry that extra battery, but if you carry the Jackery Jewel lightning Power Cable, you’ll have a two-in-one power solution.
The new MacBook comes with a 29W power cube that serves its purpose well enough, but there are no bells and whistles like, oh, say, an extra USB charging port or a way to wrap the long USB Type-C power cord neatly. With that in mind, the RAVPower 36W Dual Port Type-C/USB Wall Charger comes awfully close to perfect.
The 29W power cube that comes with the Apple 12″ MacBook is small enough, but without the storage prongs that snap in and out of most of Apple’s laptop cubes, the 2-meter cable that comes with it has to be wrapped on its own. This seems like a weird oversight from a company that’s usually more elegant.
