Cables, Batteries and Chargers

EasyAcc MFi 3200mAh-2

If you have been reading my posts on The Gadgeteer you probably already know that I have increased the amount of travel I do, if you haven't, I have increased the amount of travel I do. The reason I mention this is because I have previously reviewed iPhone 5 cases that either had built into [...]

Last month I published a news post making fun of a special wireless charging receiver for PMA style wireless chargers. I didn't see the point of such a device which seemed to offer no benefits over a regular USB cable because the adapter was so bulky and clunky. Then today Brando sent me news about a similar [...]

ibattz-batterycase-8

When I was making my choice between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, my major concerns were battery life and portability. In the end, portability won out. When I visit my in-laws, the battery drains quickly due to spotty cell reception, so I always carry a portable battery on trips. I love the idea [...]

griffin-watchstand-2

Opening my own Apple Watch Sport on Friday and watching other people's unboxing videos made me realize something:  not all charging stands introduced for the Apple Watch will work with all watchbands.  For example, the Milanese Loop and the Link Bracelet won't open completely to allow the watch to lay flat.  That means those watches, [...]
