Daniel Chin of HYPER by Sanho Corporation, says: "It was a ridiculous, unfounded and fraudulent claim which Kickstarter did [...]

phonesuit-flex-1

In an ever more-crowded field, PhoneSuit has released an interesting charger for iPhones, iPads and iPods. It's not a big brick to plug your official cable into, but a svelte little tube that connects directly to your device and provides about a full charge. I was sent two for review, in black and a deep [...]

juice-pack-car-dock

Well, without plugging a cable into the phone or case, anyway.  The juice pack car dock from mophie attaches to your car's windshield or dash with suction cups, and you'll plug its cable into your car's power outlet.  When you mount your iPhone 5 or 5s (that's cased in a mophie juice pack case) into [...]

iphone6-qi

One of my must-have features whenever I'm shopping for a new phone is Qi wireless charging. This feature is becoming more common on Android smartphones, but Apple hasn't added it to their iPhones yet, even the brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus do not have this handy feature. We've seen 3rd party covers [...]

USB cables, who cares right? You might become more interested when I tell you that these particular USB cables won't require you to pay attention to how you're plugging them in. Just like Apple's Lightning connector, these new USB cables from Remax that were sent to me from Brando, are reversible. Let me show you [...]
