The other day I was surfing one of my favorite EDC sites and saw a mention about new product from TEC Accessories called the Python Clip. Although I had no idea what I needed one for, I headed straight over to the TEC site and ordered 4 of the clips. Within a few minutes, I receivedRead More…

IPEVO Telescoping Stylus review

on Sunday, January 13th, 2013

I’m a heavy iPad user and always carry it around with me during meetings for when I need to pull up a document to show the employees.  Most of the time I just prop up the iPad and point to a chart.  The problem with that is that it leaves a whole bunch of uglyRead More…

Kaufmann Mercantile EDC Kit review

on Monday, December 17th, 2012
Posted in: Pocket Gear, Reviews

What do you EDC?  EDC stands for everyday carry, and it consists of the items that you carry on your person every day, the things you can’t live without (or at least think you can’t).  Many people do this without even consciously thinking about it, and most who do include at least one tool inRead More…

Spotlight Spark LED Torch/Flashlight Review

on Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

You’re just come in from a night out, and find that someone’s forgotten to leave the front porch light on for you.  You can’t find the right key, and you can’t see the keyhole properly.  Sound familiar? The Spark from Spotlight is a small and portable flashlight than can easily be connected to your keyring, access card, lanyard, bagRead More…

Spotlight Shifter 1.0 LED Torch/Flashlight Review

on Friday, September 7th, 2012

In the  1990s for me there was only one EDC (Every Day Carry) flashlight, and that was the Mini Maglite AA.  Its small size, aluminum construction, adjustable spot to flood light beam,  ruggedness, water resistance, candle mode, and spare bulb in tail made this so versatile for me. From in my toolkit for work, toRead More…

Just Mobile Gum Backup Battery Review

on Monday, September 3rd, 2012

We rely so much on our smartphones these days, not just for phone calls but also for the information and access that they supply.  Bigger screens are nice, but it’s always a compromise between screen size, weight and battery life.  What do you do when you’re not near a power point all day (or multipleRead More…

Posted in: Pocket Gear, Reviews

With the annual Dance Eisteddfod coming up, I needed to replenish my supply of small LED flashlights.  Trying to read a program to see when the boys are dancing in a dark concert hall is a pain, you can’t use a light that’s too bright and these 22000mcd LED Keychain Lights from DealExtreme fit the bill perfectly. Gadgets don’tRead More…

Trustfire F20 Cree LED Flashlight Review

on Sunday, May 6th, 2012

A good torch is one of those essential things that every Gadgeteer has to own. I use mine every night to read by, and of course it’s always useful if you have a power outage or if you have to go outside to look for the cat   When I travel overseas, there’s a fewRead More…

Twelve South PlugBug 10W USB iPad/iPhone Charger Plus MacBook Plug Attachment Review

on Thursday, April 26th, 2012

I’ve been on a quest to minimize the gear I need to carry to charge/sync my electronics.  My current cable/connector bag is 10.5″ X 4.5″ X 3.5″ and weighs 1.75 pounds.  It’s stuffed with cables I almost never use, so it’s hard to find the one or two cables I do use.  I certainly don’tRead More…

Digital Zone Juicebar DO10-JB Pocket Solar Charger Review

on Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

In my ever-present quest for more power for my gadgets, I was excited about the chance to review the solar DO10-JB Pocket Charger from Juicebar when the people at CableOrganizer offered to send one. I have tried other mobile power solutions that haven’t always cut the mustard, so to speak. But the price of this littleRead More…

on Tuesday, April 24th, 2012
Posted in: Gear, Pocket Gear, Reviews

I recently reviewed a small set of Incase USB cables that will lighten your daily-carry load, and now I’ll tell you about a single USB cable from Innergie that can charge almost every USB device you own.  The Charge & Sync 3-in-1 USB Cable contains a miniUSB, microUSB, and Apple 30-pin connector in a singleRead More…

WINGStand Portable Stand for iPhone and iPad and other Bluetooth Devices Review

on Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

As I’ve mentioned before, the thing I haven’t liked about the iPads I’ve owned is the on-screen keyboard.  The virtual keys don’t lend themselves to touch typing.  None of the keyboard cases I’ve tried were what I’ve been looking for, because they have cramped, undersized keyboards, often with a non-standard layout.  The best keyboard I’veRead More…

Incase USB Mini Cable Kit Review

on Saturday, April 21st, 2012
Posted in: Gear, Pocket Gear, Reviews

When you think of pocket gear, you probably think of multitools or even small flashlights that you can add to your keyring.  You probably don’t think of USB cables, but the USB Cable Kit from Incase is small enough to qualify as pocket gear.  I recently purchased this cable set to keep in my purse,Read More…
