Parachute multi-tool review

on Wednesday, December 18th, 2013
Posted in: Gear, Pocket Gear, Reviews

I have said it before, and I will probably say it many more times here on The Gadgeteer pages: I am a pocket multi-tool junkie. I love having the ability to carry around small gadgets that can perform several different functions. I especially like items that I can fit on a keyring or into a Read More…

This is the sharpest card in your wallet the Cardsharp4

on Friday, December 13th, 2013
Posted in: Gear, News, Pocket Gear

I will admit it, I am not the knife aficionado I was once. I used to love knives, all sort of knives and while I still do have the odd or unusual knife around, I have mainly limited myself to the utilitarian variety of knife (Swiss Army type, Leatherman) but I do own a Cardsharp Read More…

So, you have finally garnered the elusive American Express Centurion Card, you know the one simply known as “The Black Card”, but now you need a card holder worthy of carrying such a prestigious piece of plastic titanium.

Flipside 3X Wallet review

on Sunday, December 8th, 2013

It’s always fun to see how a popular product evolves over time. The new Flipside 3X Wallet has been updated with more capacity for bills and cards, stronger hinges, a newly redesigned locking mechanism, rugged new texture on the outer shell that resists most scratches and a smoother curve geometry, making it slightly smaller and Read More…

Knuckler

Why use your fist to fix that problem when the Knuckler is at hand?

on Friday, December 6th, 2013

So, you’re into gadgety multi-tools? Me too! The more functional the better is what I always say. But function and design have to come with a purpose, and the Knuckler multi-tool, a Kickstarter project from Jeff Morin (who also brought us the Parachute multi-tool), seems to have found its purpose. Jeff Morin has other successful Read More…

In a world of hurt? Let the Fubar Baby help pry you out of that situation

on Sunday, December 1st, 2013

In the world of consumerism, we like to get the most bang for our buck. Take pocket multi-tools for example, we think the more things we can use it for the better and in most cases I would agree. But one designer has seen a short coming in one prominent feature of the pocket multi-tool, Read More…

Pelican 2370 3-in-1 Color Mode LED Flashlight review

on Thursday, November 21st, 2013

If you are familiar with the name Pelican, then you may know that they are known for their cases that are tough, durable, and long-lasting.  I was unaware that Pelican made flashlights, so naturally I was very curious on how good their flashlights could be. I assumed that if they made solid cases that they would Read More…

Scosche microBOX microUSB cable review

on Friday, October 25th, 2013

Having extra microUSB cables in my bag is such a necessity these days with all the devices that I own. I have two Android phones (one for work, one personal), an Android tablet, and various other gadgets that need a microUSB cable to sync or charge. I had the chance to review the microBOX retractable charge and Read More…

If Tiny Tim needed a screwdriver he would choose the Teeny Turner

on Monday, October 14th, 2013

It never fails when I am on a trip or out shooting pictures or videos, I run into a need for a screw driver. But not just any size screwdriver, I always need one to fit small screws. I do carry a few loose mini type screwdrivers in my camera bag, ones that I think Read More…

Left Field Design has a Kickstarter project that takes an old-world design and evolves it for modern times. The LFD CardClip is a machined (money) clip-style slim wallet, engineered to securely carry your identification, a few credit cards, and paper money. I have been considering trying something like this for too long now. So, when Julie offered Read More…

Parachute Multi-Tool

It may not slow your fall, but the Parachute Multi-Tool can fix things once you land

on Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

I will admit that I am a pocket multi-tool lover. I guess I picture myself as a closeted Boy Scout, aways wanting to be prepared. So when I see a different design for a pocket multi-tool, I like to post about it. The Parachute Multi-Tool, a Kickstarter project by Jeff Morin, recently caught my eye. Read More…

on Saturday, September 14th, 2013

StatGear T3 Tactical Auto Rescue Tool review

on Sunday, September 8th, 2013

Having previously been in the public safety field for a number of years, I have come to realize how important a good knife can be when you are on the job. The problem with most knives is that they have a single functional; they are designed to cut. Yes, I have seen knives that have Read More…

Technology is awesome and convenient, especially smartphones and tablets.  They are getting smaller, faster, and can have pretty good battery life built in.  Sometimes you go to an event where your mobile phone is searching for signal constantly, in which you find yourself in the predicament of losing battery charge quickly.  It’s always a good idea Read More…

Posted in: Gear, Pocket Gear, Reviews

We love flashlights here at The-Gadgeteer. They are valuable tools to have around for emergencies or work usages.  Most flashlights these days are LED based because of the advantages of energy efficiency and high lumens output. I’m here to test OLight’s M10 Maverick LED Flashlight that was provided by BatteryJunction.com.
