The SkyRC NC2500 AA/AAA Battery Charger & Analyzer from Brando gives new meaning to the word "overkill". We've reviewed AA/AAA battery chargers here on The Gadgeteer before, but have you ever seen a charger with Bluetooth? Why would a battery charger even need Bluetooth you ask yourself? I asked myself that very same question and [...]

I use an Apple Bluetooth keyboard and Magic Mouse with my Mac mini desktop setup.  I've been surprised at how long a set of batteries last in the keyboard, but the mouse needs fairly frequent battery changes.  I'll hang my head in shame and admit that I use disposable batteries in both devices, because I [...]

energizer-recharge-value-1

How many devices, toys and gadgets do you own that use AA or AAA batteries? Do you feed these devices standard alkaline batteries, or do you use rechargeables? I personally prefer to go the rechargeable route mainly because it's easier and less expensive for me to pop a set of drained batteries into a charger [...]

Do you charge your iPhone with a boring old cable? What the heck is the matter with you? Are you a gadgeteer or what? I bet these docks from Iron Giant Designs will make you drool. They offer a limited number of docks that are made from a solid hunk of metal or clear material [...]

At our house, a mission to complete Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars on the Wii has been undertaken by my son and me, with assistance from my daughter (Mom's not so into it).  As you might imagine, this tends to drain a lot of Wii controller batteries.  Rather than waste a small fortune [...]

When Julie, The Gadgeteer, asked if I would like to review Digital Innovations' speaker dock for Android smartphones, I jumped on the chance. I had just been asking myself if there was a speaker dock out there for Android Smartphones. I know there are plenty of them available for iPhones and iPods, but I had never [...]

When it comes to your device's battery having a portable charger around in an emergency is a great battery saver. But when that battery charger is capable of charging two devices at a time, well then, it becomes a lifesaver. For someone like me who constantly uses two cellphones, having a battery charger is a necessity. [...]
