When you have a lot of gear to carry around, you want to make sure you don't carry anything you don't really need.  If you're like me, you weigh the merits carefully before deciding you're willing to lug that particular piece of equipment around every day.  What if you could combine two necessary items into [...]

In an ever more-crowded field, PhoneSuit has released an interesting charger for iPhones, iPads and iPods. It's not a big brick to plug your official cable into, but a svelte little tube that connects directly to your device and provides about a full charge. I was sent two for review, in black and a deep [...]

I'm starting to see the benefit in the multi-purposing of devices.  ZeroHour takes a flashlight  and uses the batteries to also serve as battery backup for devices powered by a USB cable.  As I usually carry two separate items in my car or pack to accomplish the same goal, I'm now able to cut back to just [...]

Just Power Stick

For those of us old enough to have noticed, it’s amazing how quickly phones have transitioned from stationary devices to portable toys for the rich-and-famous to in-case-of-emergency gear to essential, inseparable extensions of ourselves.

Backup batteries are a necessity for me and my husband. There have been times when both of our phones were on their last leg while sight seeing on vacation and we only had one portable battery. It would charge one device at a time and would do so very, VERY slowly. Nothing screams "Get a [...]
