I think it's pretty safe to assume anyone reading this is a fan of gadgets, and perhaps has a pretty healthy supply of their own. On any given day our smartphones function as our GPS, our fitness trackers, our music players, our cameras, and even occasionally as a phone. With all that use comes a [...]

Our phones contain all of our important information from our calendars, to our contacts lists, messages, photos and more. There's no question that backing up that data is critical. That's why Android and iOS devices have built in features to back up to the cloud. One backup is great, but having a second backup is [...]

astore-6p-1

When I switched from the LG G3 to the Nexus 6P last fall, I knew I'd be giving up a couple features that I had been enjoying for years with the LG G3 and previous smartphones - a microSD card and most of all, wireless charging. With the 6P's USB-C fast charging, the lack of [...]

ventev-s500-1

One of the drawbacks to having a gadget addiction is the resulting clutter. Much to my wife's chagrin, my house is usually littered with gadgets, plugs, cords, etc. I'm always looking for ways to help me organize things better, but generally find myself coming up short. Recently, I was given the chance to review the Ventev [...]

Even though the latest MacBooks have great battery life, they aren't magical. At some point the battery will drain and you'll need to hunt for your charger and an outlet. Dead batteries tend to happen at the worst moment, but if your MacBook has a USB-C port, the Kanex GoPower with its built in 15,000mAh [...]

Our mobile devices need juice, yes? I'm talking power, amps. The answer to that is of course, YES. As a result, portable power solutions have become quite popular. I'd been thinking about going on the hunt for a small battery to top off my iPhone 6 Plus when I travel or can't be near an outlet for [...]

1 MOS pack plugged in

I'm pretty much a minimalist, grateful for pockets so I don't have to carry a bag every day. But for the last month, I've been using the MOS Charging Backpack.

techorbits-wireless-charger-1

I have been obsessed with wireless charging ever since I got my Galaxy S6 Edge+ phone.  Cutting myself loose from charging cables is a wonderfully freeing experience, and I honestly think that wireless charging is going to be the future and all sorts of surfaces around the house, restaurants, and the office will be wireless [...]
