Liquid Key Caddy review

Liquid Key Caddy-1

It is not often that I get a chance to review a product before it is available to consumers for their purchase. But the other day I got a nice surprise from the postman and the folks at Liquid (an Australian group),with their new Key Caddy, a follow-up Kickstarter project to the Liquid Wallet that I [...]

I love getting a new gadget, not just because I love the gadget itself, but because it means I get new cases and covers!  Of course, I expect a case to protect my device from bumps and bruises of everyday use, but I also want it to either disappear from view or to add to [...]

Here at The Gadgeteer we review hundreds of gadgets and devices every year. The majority of which we shelve or give away not long after the review has been posted. There's a limit to the number of activity trackers and headphones one person can wear. But what about those devices that we continue to use long after we've given [...]

B&W+P5_Series2_16

To paraphrase Yogi Berra, Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2 headphones are deja-vu all over again. In my review of the original P5 headphones, I said that they could handle anything I had been able to throw at them. That was four-years ago and now B&W wants even more thrown at their new P5 Series 2 [...]

rapoo-t120p-1

I've been using a Logitech V470 Bluetooth Cordless Laser Mouse with my MacBook Pro for a few years now. I like the size and fact that is wireless, but lately it has started behaving strangely. The cursor moves erratically on the screen when I move the mouse, making it difficult to do detailed Photoshop edits to [...]

spire-1

With all of the activity trackers on the market right now, new trackers need to do more than just count your steps. They need to have a unique design and features that make them stand out from the crowd. The Spire activity tracker has both a unique design and feature set. With its soft touch stone sensor, [...]

BBQ Dragon review

BBQ-Dragon-Main

To me, nothing is better than freshly grilled meat and veggies at home during the warm (and cold) months. My boyfriend and I struggle to get our barbecue coals hot quickly using various tools, and have to wait well over 45 minutes for the coals to be ready.  I recently got the chance to review the BBQ [...]

Kenu Stance-1

Let's face it, we live in a compact on the go world. Now days if it doesn't fit in our pockets, purses or wallets or on our key chains, we tend not to keep it around or forget it all together. This seems especially true when traveling, with all the size and weight restrictions a [...]

travelcard-backup-battery-1

Portable backup batteries for our gadgets are plentiful.  They come in all shapes and sizes and prices and capacities, and I have reviewed more backup batteries here on the Gadgeteer than just about any other category of gadgets, I think. I use them every day of my life and I have them in my house, [...]

You can even view captured video from as old as 30 days. But the most exciting thing about Manything is that it's free. Well at least for now. Note: [...]

Arctic-P614BTheadphones-1

What would the world look like without music? Much less happy I would guess. Music is a vital part of our lives, however, it is not always appropriate to share that music with those around you (like at work) making earbuds or headphones a necessity. The Arctic P614 BT (for Bluetooth) headphones are one of [...]

fobo_tire-box

My fun car has wide, low profile tires that I regularly have to check to make sure they have not lost air pressure. While not a massive burden, it does take time and effort that only seems to get worse the older my knees get. Anytime my car sits more than a few days, instead of [...]

joli-iphone-6-plug-case-6

The "new phone" experience just isn't complete until you've gotten a new case for it, am I right?  The nice thing about getting a new iPhone is that you're sure there's going to be a plethora of cases offered for it, so you'll have plenty of options.  If you like to use your iPhone naked, [...]

Today I'm going to show you the X-mini CLEAR Bluetooth speaker. X-mini should sound familiar to you. They are the [...]

brando-i-flashdrive-5

Because we have three people who always get iPhone upgrades, we always buy the lowest storage capacity to keep our costs down.  That wasn't a problem before, because we mostly used our iPhones for calling, texting, emailing, and navigation.  We typically used our iPads for gaming, creating files, and other activities.  This upgrade, I've regretted [...]

We haul lots of gear 'round these parts, some of us more than others. I like my gear-hauling bags to be durable and multi-purpose, and to include at least a few organizational features. Oh, and to look good too. Cargo Works has several products that seem to fit those criteria for me. I recently had the [...]

dotpen-stylus-2

My love for styluses goes way back to the good old days of the Palm Pilot PDA. If you know what that is, you'll also remember the plastic "toothpick" stylus that started it all. When the iPhone and iPad came on the scene the stylus disappeared for awhile because touch screens changed from resistive to capacitive [...]

Even though we've lived in our new place for just over a year now, we still don't have enough artwork on the walls.  I'm trying to find some Mid-century prints and metal art for the walls, but I still like to leave room for pictures of loved ones.  When Picture It On Canvas offered The [...]
