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!
2016 is shaping up to be the year where I constantly go back and forth between iOS and Android. As much as I love my chargers with built-in Lightning cables, they get left at home more often than not because I’m carrying an Android device. It’s better to have options, and that’s where the myCharge HubUltra comes in.
I am a bit of a size snob when it comes to portable batteries; if there is an option to get it, I want the largest mAh available. Nothing gives me more comfort when I’ve got a 20-hour international journey than knowing I have enough battery power to keep all of my portable devices charged during the trip.
One of the things that I loved about my monogram Louis Vuitton Zippy organizer wallet was its design. It could hold all of my credit and ID cards, bills, and plane tickets in one compact, zippable clutch The only thing it couldn’t do was hold my phone; if it had a little bigger pocket, it would have been perfect.
Every once in awhile I find myself in a dilemma when reviewing product. Take the new offGRID battery case from Incipio, for example. We recently received a unit for review for the Samsung Galaxy S6 device. I have no problem with the product whatsoever and found it to work just fine – my issue is with the product name.
I’ve been on the quest for the perfect backup battery, and now I feel like I’m one step closer to finding what I’ve been looking for: a slim battery with enough power to charge my phone at least twice with no need for extra cables. As I learned on my recent trip to IFA, the CODi PowerBank fits the bill!
I am probably the last person to need privacy glass for my smartphone, but I do need a screen protector that will outlast the life cycle of the latest generation device. Moshi offers both in the form of its new iVisor Glass and Glass Privacy for all the latest phones on the market including my iPhone 6.
We’ve taken a look previously at Rokform phone cases and the unique mounting system they employ, along with the inclusion of a magnet in each case for greater mounting flexibility. Soon after the release of the new Samsung Galaxy S6, Rokform sent along its newest Crystal v3 case for us to test on our family’s newest device.
You can never have enough charge for your device, no matter what anyone tells you. Having a decent battery life on the go is a necessity these days now that phones seem to get larger and more powerful. Luckily thanks to Kickstarter, there’s a new all-in-one charger that will make sure you never have a dead battery. The Uiee Charger combines a wall charger as well as a backup charger so you will never have to scramble to find a wall charger when you get that “Battery Alert” on your device. Featuring prongs that flip out, you can choose to…
One issue I have had with device cases that contain battery packs is the bulk and weight added to your device that you carry on your person. I really don’t want that bulge or all that bulk in my front pocket. TYLT offers a solution in the form of the ENERGI Sliding Power Cases available for a host of devices.
One problem I’ve always had about screen protectors: I cannot put them on. Three out of every four times I attempt to do it myself the end result is either fingerprints UNDER the screen protector (even when I touch the sides like instructed) or the one really, really good time I put it on, there’s lint and particles .
Now that you have had some time to get familiar with your new smart device, you may be starting to wish for some accessories to expand its functionality. A good place to start is with photography attachments and USBFever.com is a great place to begin your journey towards expanding your smart device photography portfolio.
Have you heard about the Oculus Rift? Over the past 12 months the virtual reality company has been collaborating with Samsung, and the result is the new Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition which creates a virtual reality experience driven by the Galaxy Note 4, and it will be ready in early December. Why should you care?
