I'm a sucker for organization and minimalism. To me, there's nothing better than having a place for everything and having everything in its place, and all the better if I can consolidate and reduce the number of things that I have to carry with me on a daily basis. So when I got my hands… Read More

I love my MPOW Swift Bluetooth 4.0 Headphones and because of them, Bluetooth earbuds are all I use. I no longer wish to deal with wired earphones. And I've found that I like having earbuds over other types of headphones (on-ear or over-the-ear) because they are small and portable, don't leak sound so as to… Read More

I'm a huge fan of backpacks and bags of all kinds, and one of my favorite bags with a shoulder strap is the Mission Rucksack by Toffee. I loved bringing that on the plane, but I have started using my iPad less and less, and I usually just bring my MacBook Pro on trips now… Read More

Specifications: Nominal Operating Voltage: 120VAC, 50-60 Hz Maximum Amperage: 15A Joule Rating… Read More

We all need to listen to things on our devices from time to time without the distraction of other noises, or without causing interruption to those around us. Earbuds are the quick-and-dirty solution, but if you're watching a movie, or sitting down for a good long study/work session, you're going to want something a little… Read More

If you own an Apple Watch and you're anything like me you're constantly looking for new and unique bands to show it off. If you peruse Amazon there are literally thousands of choices but most of them are just cheaper replicas of watch bands that are already offered by Apple. I present to you the… Read More

Over the course of my time with the Gadgeteer I've had the opportunity to review several different drones. I've reviewed big drones, little drones, and video drones. Two such drones, the Axis Vidius 420P video drone, and the Axis Aerius quadcopter, both flew well, but the Vidius was a bit bigger and had a built-in camera… Read More

I have the iPhone 7 Plus, which is a big phone at 5.5 inches. I often look for the thinnest case possible to fit into my back pocket or small handbag. I still want protection, but without all the bulk. Totallee has released a super thin iPhone case called "the scarf". Let's take a look at… Read More

Whether it's smartphones, wallets, pens and other gadgets, sometimes it's a curse being The Gadgeteer because I'm never satisfied with what I have and am always chasing my next favorite thing. Ok who am I kidding, it's freaking awesome being The Gadgeteer for that same exact reason. There's always something new, better, faster and more awesome… Read More

Like many households, mornings at the Chapman residence usually start with a trip to the coffee maker. I love my coffee hot, but I always put milk in mine, which cools the coffee to barely tolerable levels. DripJoy has a single serve coffee maker called the JoyBarista and a subscription coffee service with multiple types… Read More

I have reviewed (more than) my fair share of dashcams and radar detectors over the past few years. All of these devices require power in a relatively inconvenient place in your car. Typically these devices are installed up near your rearview mirror. Few automobiles have a 12V or USB port anywhere near that location. Running… Read More

This projection alarm clock is pretty cool. It has a lot of features most radio alarm clocks have, and a few that are not so common. My favorite function on this clock, of course, is the ability to project the time onto the ceiling. I love this because I always sleep on my back, and… Read More

I've discovered that I have a real affinity for leather wallets. They're flexible, durable, attractive and they smell great. I've also discovered an affinity for those wallets that carry my plastic cards vertically rather than horizontally. The Riveci Olympus - Bowie Pull-up Brown wallet is such a wallet and I was given the opportunity to… Read More
