One of the things I love about the iPhone X is the wireless charging Apple finally built into its new phones. I love not having to plug my phone in. In the past months, I’ve purchased a number of wireless charging stands. All get the job done, but none comes close to the Nomad Wireless Travel Stand.
Now and then you come upon a product and can’t help but think, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Lifeproof’s LIFEACTÍV Lightning Connector to USB Cable Lanyard is one such product. Sure, my iPhone X has wireless charging, but it never hurts to have a USB to Lightning cable handy. This product makes sure you have one at all times.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you’re looking for a last-minute gift for that special someone for Valentine’s Day, we’ve compiled another list of some great options that are great for the occasion.
Mophie has become a leader in designing truly high quality and innovative battery packs, but until now they’ve never come out with one that could charge your laptop on the go. The new Powerstation AC has been designed to fully charge a MacBook, as well as an assortment of other devices.
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.
Incipio is extending its line of external batteries with the new offGRID Turbo and offGRID Turbo+ USB-C universal and USB-C integrated portable power banks. I’ve used previous iterations of the offGRID line They’re durable, easy to use and a great addition to any gear bag. I have no doubt the same will be true with these new offerings.
I’ve found that the best way to make sure I don’t forget anything before I leave home is to have a central spot where I keep all the things I might need. Phone, keys, battery pack — all go in a bowl by the door. It’s low-tech, but it works. The Pitaka MagHive takes my strategy into the 21st century.
If you have a device that charges wirelessly, one thing that you’ve grown fond of is the ability to maneuver without cables. It’s a luxury for sure, but a great luxury nonetheless. However, most wireless charges still are only meant for in-home use. That changes today thanks to Avido.
If you could choose only one battery pack for your next long haul flight, the mophie powerstation AC should probably be it. Mophie’s powerstation AC is a high-capacity external battery with AC power as well as USB-C PD fast charging for laptops, tablets, smartphones. You heard that right, this is a battery pack that’s powerful enough to charge all your…
If you’ve got a phone with wireless capabilities, you’re hopefully taking full advantage of the fact that you can charge your phone wirelessly in your car, at certain coffee shops, and in your home. So, what are you using at your desk? You could Prop your phone up for max visibility in an inexpensive yet powerful Seneo Fast Wireless Charger!
Readers who have read my reviews here at Gear Diary or over on my site know that I travel. A lot. The bulk of my career has seen me travel to every lower 48 state and to many other destinations around the globe.
Nomad makes some amazing products, from cases to cables and stands, and if you’ve ever eyed their carabiner with a mini USB cable attached, now is the time to snag it. If you head to Hello Nomad, and enter the code MINI, you can snag the carabiner for only the cost of shipping (normally $29.95). This ONLY applies to the…
We’ve reviewed many portable battery packs here, but the SYNAVOLT is the first I’ve ever seen that is both expandable and modular. Currently raising funds on Indiegogo, SYNAVOLT starts with a 20,000mAh base unit; it has two slotted expansion bay ends that can handle a variety of power-enabled modular attachments.
Now that you’ve ordered your iPhone X, chances are you are looking for new accessories to purchase. Luckily, ’tis the season for great deals, and I’m here to bring you a few accessories for Apple’s new flagship device that are must-haves.
One of the best features (other than Animoji) for the iPhone X, hands down, has to be the Wireless charging. Now sure, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus both have this compatibility as well, but no matter the device, you should take advantage of the functionality. And what better company to do it with besides RAVPower?
I finally got the notice that my iPhone X has shipped. Yes, I ordered it minutes after the page went live, but I still got pushed back to the middle of November. When it arrives, I’ll be ready with great accessories like the Incipio GHOST Qi 15W Wireless Charging Pad. At under $60, it’s ready to keep your iPhone charged.
One USB multi-device charger is just the same as any other, right? Well, no, not exactly. To start, not all USB chargers are powerful enough to charge more than one tablet at a time. The Punkt. UC 01 USB Desktop Charger, however, is fully capable of charging up to three iPads simultaneously.
