One of the things I like about my 2015 Macbook Pro is that unlike newer MacBooks, it has the magnetic charger that used to differentiate Apple laptops from all others. If my cable gets bumped or pulled, it breaks free from my laptop — rather than crashing everything to the floor. SynCharge promises to give Type-C MacBooks back that feature.
Samsung Galaxy Gear
Following Samsung’s announcement of the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus recently, Griffin has partnered up with Samsung to announce their series of Survivor cases for the latest flagship phones from the company.
Moshi, a favorite here at Gear Diary announced their collection of accessories for the newly announced Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will be available late next month both on Moshi’s website, and select retailers.
With the announcement of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus this week, a lot of you may be looking for some accessories for the phone in advance of the smartphone arriving at your doorstep. Luckily there are a few cases who are already ahead of the curve, making their accessories available for purchase. Here are a few of them: …
With wireless being the way that so many headphones have been going, and with built-in 3.5mm jacks becoming rarer, it might seem, I don’t know, maybe a bit retro to review a pair of wired-only headphones. Even so, the Focal Listen Closed Back Over-Ear Headphones are worth a look.
I recently reviewed the Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 headphones; now I’ve got their slightly more upscale brother, the Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 SE, in hand. Everything I enjoyed about the BackBeat PRO 2 is present (do check out their review if you haven’t already), but with the PRO 2 SE headphones, there is even more to love.
I’ve tried plenty of phone holders in my vehicles, but the one thing that always stops me from wanting to keep using them is that they can be bulky, ugly, or they require special attachments to use. The Just Mobile Xtand Vent is a sleek, minimalistic vent holder for your phone. It works well, and it looks good.
The tech world just got a bit smaller today as Samsung Electronics announced that their impressive line of Gear devices- including the Gear S3, Gear S2, and Gear Fit- are now compatible with iOS. Yes, those of us on iPhone’s no longer need to be limited to wearing an Apple Watch. Personally, I’m going for the Gear 3 Frontier!
BodyGuardz is offering a special 50% Thanksgiving discount that will run from Nov 24 – Nov 29th. If you’ve been putting off getting a screen protector or a good case for your phone, don’t dally — head over to BodyGuardz and take advantage of this great deal while it’s available!
Not that Bluetooth earphones and headphones weren’t already growing more and more popular, but Apple’s removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack has all but ensured that this is the direction mobile audio has headed. Do you have a favorite set of Bluetooth earphones or headphones yet? I’m still trying to decide. Lately, I’ve been using ROAM ROPES.
While at IFA, I managed to drop my phone not once, but three times — face-down. This chipped the glass protector I was using to the point that I was worried I might cut myself on it, so I removed it. I’m trying something new now, the CrystalTech Nano 2.0 Liquid Screen Protector.
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 the old-fashioned “ear-trumpet” is what you think of when you think of a hearing aid, you’re only a couple of centuries behind on the tech. Today’s hearing aids are tiny, little things that help their wearers hear well without being obvious or conspicuous.
I finally broke down and bought a MacBook after months of hard-sell from Helena. Being able to carry a full Mac OS X computer that weighs so much less than my 13″ MacBook Pro has been liberating; figuring out how to charge my travel laptop and other devices at the same time has been a bit more of a challenge.
Most of the “wireless” headphones we’ve reviewed still have a wire that connects to each of the earphones on either side of the wearer’s head; the PKparis K’asq Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Headset removes that wire and puts the entire package in each of the wearer’s ears. How well could that possibly work?
For a while, backpacks and suitcases have been available that have built-in battery packs for on the go charging. The issue I’ve run into with these combo sets is that I’ve never found a backpack or suitcase that I really liked that came with built-in power. The solution?
If you’ve got a wireless charge capable phone, such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and you’re not using a wireless charger, you’re missing out on a level of convenience that iPhone users can only dream about. Using the VHbox Vh Qi Wireless Charging Pad means no fumbling with cables — you just lay your phone down and charge it.
Whether you travel a lot or work solely at a desk, the one thing you can never have too much of are USB ports! If you have the Choetech 6-Port Desktop Quick-Charge 3.0 USB Charger, then you are set!
Power bank manufacturers keep shoving higher capacity batteries into smaller packages for less money, and that’s great for us! At $30, the Choetech 10,400mAh Portable Power Bank is a 4″ long by 3″ wide by 1″ thick little brick that can get you through the longest of days with plenty of juice.
If you happen to own a Quick Charge capable Android phone like the LG G5 or the Samsung Galaxy S7s, you might be wondering which charger you should invest in. I was sent the Choetech T513-S 3-Coils Fast Wireless Charger and the CHOE 18W Fast charger Adaptive Wall Adapter (try saying that five times fast).
There’s no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is one of the sleekest superphones available now, and one of the first things you’ll want to do when you get yours will be to put it in a case that doesn’t take away from its good looks or thin form. Incipio can help!
