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 devices, and your laptop too.
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 mini USB carabiner, and only one per person. Better head…
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.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have arrived, and the iPhone X is available for pre-order later this week. I have to say, while I’m excited for the higher-resolution screen of the iPhone X, I’m most excited to have an iPhone that finally has wireless charging built-in. That’s where the $59.99 Belkin BOOST UP will come in handy.
The LandingZone has announced what they call “the most powerful Apple MacBook docking station to-date.” It just might be. This new docking station offers an oh-so-awesome 16 different ports and can turn your MacBook Pro with Touch Bar into a powerful workstation. At $299 it is pricey, but the added functionality is unparalleled if you want an impressive desktop computer.
With the summer winding down, we all know one thing is for certain — back to school sales will be everywhere you turn. But not everything on your shopping list should be pens and pencils, you should pick up a few products by Belkin to make sure that student goes back to school in Style.
Like most households, as I look around, there are devices everywhere that need charging. In my house, that means one iPad, an iPad Mini, an iPhone SE, a Google Pixel XL, a Yoga Book tablet, a Nexus 6P and three different portable battery packs.
If you travel regularly to different countries, then you know that an assortment of power adapters for each country you’ll be visiting is a necessary investment. Here to make worldwide charging of your MacBook and phone (or tablet) more simple is the Innergie PowerJoy 30C USB-C Wall Charger.
We’ve all seen the USB hubs that look like a black or silver block with three or more USB ports on the front and a wall charger cable on the back, right? They work well enough, but they aren’t particularly organized or nice looking. Here to prove that you can have organization and good looks is the Nomad USB Hub.
If you have an iPhone and tend to use a portable battery pack when you’re on the go, but dread having to lug around a long cable — only to have to wrap it around the battery pack so it doesn’t look unsightly — you really need to check out the 4″ Anker Powerline Lightning cable.
