Seems like Apple is being a bit more open to other companies making better quality yet more affordable products than they can, as evidenced by Scosche releasing their new MFi-certified USB-C accessories.
Having multiple devices with me day in and day out, occasionally they will need to be charged. Now I don’t have that problem, and it’s thanks to Satechi’s 75W USB-C PD Travel Multi-Charger.

I’m excited about all of the products that Scosche has announced for CES 2019, and that continues with the Scosche BTFREQ. It’s a smart USB Type-A and Type-C car charger and Bluetooth transmitter that you should consider — even if your car already has Bluetooth.
Seems like it took a long while, but companies are finally embracing USB Type-C by integrating it in all of their products (balls in your court now, Apple). However, Satechi, a favorite here at Gear Diary announces two silver and sleek Type-C chargers that you’re going to want in your bag, at home, or wherever you charge up devices.
Lenovo always comes to CES prepared with a roster of heavy-hitting announcements, and this year is no exception. With ThinkPad X1 Carbon and ThinkPad X1 Yoga updates, some seriously big monitors, and a few amazing accessories to round things out; let’s dive in!

The newest Mac laptops are fantastic. They are fast, thin, light and get the job done. Unfortunately, in their ongoing commitment to industrial design, Apple has, as you know, dropped many of the ports that used to be standard in laptops. Thankfully, the OWC USB-C Travel Dock is here. For under $40 it gives you back what Apple took away.
Many people continue to make a big deal out of the fact that Apple began dropping ports from their notebooks to such a degree that one might think they were radioactive. The MacBook has a single USB-C port, and the rest of the line doesn’t fare much better. That’s where the Kingston Nucleum comes in. You see, connections matter.
When Apple took away the basic necessities MacBook users use every day (including HDMI and USB outlets) opting to switch to USB Type C, many companies benefited from this. Consumers, however, have had to deal with dongle life ever since 2016. But not all dongles and hubs are created equally. Hyper is leading the pack in great USB Type C accessories that you should check out.
While school is already in full swing, it’s never too late to add some school gadgets and supplies to your shopping list. The Fall 2018 semester is all about sleek, advanced technology that makes it easier and more intuitive to learn and grasp challenging academic topics.
The Audio Technica’s AT2020 USB Cardioid Condenser Studio Microphone was the first microphone I attempted to use to record my weekly podcast, and I have to say, even at the affordable price of $149.00 it’s been one of the better microphones I’ve used to date.
My 12″ MacBook is so light and thin; I always have it in my backpack. It’s probably the most convenient laptop I’ve ever had, but there is one huge drawback: it only has one USB Type-C port. No memory card slots, no extra USB ports, no nuthin’. The Satechi USB-C MultiMedia Adapter adds memory card slots, USB ports, and more.
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.
Our home is all-in with Alexa-enabled smart devices. I considered getting an Amazon Echo Spot and using it as a bedside clock, but I didn’t see much advantage to that. Then I saw the upcoming Sandman Doppler from Palo Alto Innovation. It may look like a bedside alarm clock, but it is a complete information hub powered by Alexa.
With the size of videos and photos nowadays, we may all have a time where the provided memory just is not enough. Naztech is addressing this issue with the Xtra Drive mini ($59.99). The device allows you to instantly save and transfer files using your iOS device’s Lightning Connector and up to 256GB Micro USB card.
My new MacBook Pro is thin and light and, with just two USB-C ports, is lacking in ports. My iMac does better but still lacks the degree of port-related connectivity I used to have. That’s why the $299 OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock is a perfect fit; it offers a ton of ports and speeds that were unimaginable a few years ago.
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 need to carry a high-capacity external drive with you when you travel or go to work, you’ll likely be interested in making that memory device as small as possible. Take a look at the Western Digital My Passport SSD; it’s 1 Terabyte, rated for 515MB/s, and it measures just 3.6″ long by 1.8″ wide by 0.4″ thick.
It seems as if USB-C is going to be the wave of the future, with rumors of the next iPhone integrating it and with Apple’s most recent MacBook pro sporting nothing but USB type C ports. In an effort to future-proof themselves, ChoeTech has begun releasing USB Type-C products and allowed us to check a few out. The First is the ChoeTech USB-C Charger, which is a 3 port charger…
