OneAdaptr OneWorld 65 Review: With 6 Different Ports, This Could Be the Only Travel Adapter You Need to Bring

If you travel internationally, you know the #1 rookie mistake is arriving at your destination and finding that you either forgot that country’s correct adapter or you didn’t bring enough adapters for all of your gear. I recently traveled to Berlin for IFA, followed by a week in Spain. I only brought two adapters with me, the OneAdaptr OneWorld 65 for charging all of my gear and a basic US to EU adapter that was kept attached to my curling iron’s US plug. Thankfully, this proved to be the perfect setup.


Lenovo Glasses T1 Create a Comfortable, Wearable, Private Display

On the 9-hour flight from DFW to LHR Monday, I had a young child sitting next to me on the plane. Flipping through the available movies, I realized that the few that caught my interest might be too violent and slightly inappropriate for the little guy sitting next to me, so I read instead. However, if I had had the Lenovo Glasses T1, I could have privately enjoyed any movie I wanted without worrying about whether the action or images were appropriate for my seatmate.



IOGEAR Dock Pro 6-in-1 4K Dock Stand Review: An Efficient and Ergonomic Workspace, Even On-the-Go

People are traveling for work once again. Fortunately, more thin, light, powerful laptops are available than ever before. Unfortunately, most of those laptops fall short in the port department, and I’m not just speaking only about Macs! That’s where the IOGEAR Dock Pro 6-in-1 4K Dock Stand comes in; it’s light and portable and adds some important ports for on-the-go computing.



UGREEN Nexode 200W GaN Charger Review: Plenty of Power to Charge Up to Six of Your Devices Simultaneously

Playing the equivalent of musical chairs with your wall chargers and cables can become the norm, especially when your everyday carry includes multiple power-hungry devices like laptops and tablets. The UGREEN Nexode 200W GaN Charger puts four USB-C ports and two USB ports at your disposal; with its GaN technology, you can fast-charge up to three 65W laptops at the same time or you can charge up to six smartphones and tablets simultaneously.


28″ LEVEL8 Luminous Trunk Review: This May Just Be the Perfect Checked Luggage

Heading to the airport after the Snapdragon Summit in December, a friend noticed that my 6-years-old (and very well-traveled) Rimowa trunk had a massive new crack just below the handle on its front side. Thankfully, the luggage and its contents made it home without self-destructing, but it will need to be sent in for repairs (assuming they are even possible). With many upcoming trips planned, I was thankful for the opportunity to review the  28″ LEVEL8 Luminous Trunk. How does it stack up against the more than twice as expensive Rimowa trunk? Read on to find out.


TravelPro Platinum Elite Large Check-In Expandable Hardside Spinner Review: It Can Carry Everything and Then Some

Last July, I reviewed the TravelPro PLATINUM ELITE Compact Business Plus Carry-On. It’s a superb carry-on that will give me years of use. I recently received the TravelPro Platinum Elite Large Check-In Expandable Hardside Spinner to review. It has all of the great features that made me a fan of their carry-on, but this checked luggage offers plenty of room for an extended trip.


Kovol Sprint 120W and 65W 4-Port PD GaN Desktop Chargers Review: With Them, You’ll Have Power to Spare

Not long ago, Apple stopped including AC adapters with their phone and tablets. As annoying as it was, that move prompted numerous companies to jump in and fill the vacuum; Kovol is one such company. The Kovol Sprint 120W 4-Port PD GaN Desktop Charger and the smaller Kovol Sprint 65W 4-Port GaN Desktop Charger share a similar compact design; they also put Apple’s old chargers to shame.

If you are one of the many who now has to work remotely, or if you regularly commute and need a bag that can hold it all and then some, you’ve come to the right review. Finding a well-made backpack that looks professional, has intelligently designed compartments, and that’s comfortable to carry when fully loaded is no easy feat; the WaterField Pro Executive Backpack handles it with élan.


QuietOn 3 Sleep Earbuds Are Perfect for Home, Work, and Travel

Dan reviewed the QuietOn 3 Sleep Earbuds with active noise cancelation a few months ago; he’s happy to report that he still uses them every night. With CES 2022 on the way, I got the opportunity to check out a different use for the QuietOn 3; I wanted to see how well this latest generation worked while on a plane or in other situations where I might find myself needing peace and quiet.



20″ LEVEL8 Gibraltar Full Aluminum Carry-On Review: A Beautiful and Very Functional Piece of Luggage

Travel is picking back up again, and that might have you looking at the current state of your carry-on luggage and wishing for something a little bit more serviceable and modern. The 20″ LEVEL8 Gibraltar full aluminum carry-on is a fantastic option that is intelligently designed, solidly built, and best of all — especially considering that it’s entirely made of aluminum — very affordable.



iStorage diskAshur M2 Review: Rugged, Waterproof Portable Memory Drive with Serious Built-In Security

Everything important anymore is stored on our computers, laptops, and portable flash drives. This data can include personal things like photos, medical information, passwords, the projects we are working on, or the novel we keep starting and stopping. Depending on our jobs, that data can also include sensitive materials that could wreck our companies and livelihoods if it fell into the wrong hands. Knowing that our personal or work information is protected while remaining portable and accessible — especially in this time of hybrid-work locations — is essential, and that’s where the iStorage diskAshur M2 comes in.


Eggtronic Sirius 65W Universal Charger Review: A Powerful 65W USB Type-C GaN Charger for All of Your Gadgets

It seems that most devices I use as of late are charged via USB-C. From my phone to laptop and everything in between, one charging solution works for them all. I often find myself stranded in various places needing to charge, so having another charging option strong enough for everything, including my laptop, is a game-changer; the Eggtronic Sirius 65W Universal Charger does just that.


Omnicharge Omni Mobile 25600 Review: Powerful, Portable, and Laptop Capable

Let’s say that you are going on a weekend trip, and you want to make are that you’ll be able to keep your laptop, phone, and tablet charged without bringing a bunch of extra cables and wall adapters. What if that trip happens to be somewhere remote without easy access to power from wall outlets. What would you pack? If you’re looking for the easiest, most powerful, and most portable power solution, my suggestion would be the Omnicharge Omni Mobile 25600.


Olivers Apparel Passage Pant Review: Great for Travel and Every Day

While working from home last year, I found a new appreciation for clothing that is also both comfortable and durable. Now, as I prepare to return to the office, I’m building a smaller wardrobe filled with exactly that. I’m focused on comfort and durability; the Olivers Apparel Passage Pant is part of that new “uniform.”
