As always, I'm happy to try out new cases for my electronics, especially when they are as well made and beautiful as Oberon Design products are.  When Oberon offered The Gadgeteer a chance to review their new leather iPhone cases, I asked Julie if I could try them out.  I was thrilled when I received [...]

oberon-design-phone-cases-2

I've owned a few leather items from Oberon Design over the years, and I've found them all to be exquisitely crafted, sturdy, and made of quality materials.  I still have the first item a received from Oberon - a black leather handbag that was a Mother's Day gift many years ago - and it still [...]

keyway_design_safari_hybrid

I became an iPhone owner just a few weeks ago, after years of disgruntled Android usage.  I'm almost embarrassed to admit that one of the key deciding factors in the switch over was the bevy of peripheral "toys" that can be added to an iPhone, including impressive case options.  I have always had my heart [...]

I tend to keep my iPhone 5 charged, but both my husband and daughter tend to let their batteries die.  I'm tired of paying cell phone bills for phones that aren't even available to call part of the time, so I decided to do something about it.  I couldn't get a separate battery pack, because [...]

I never used to understand the allure of wireless charging, but frankly I'm getting tired of the tangle of wires on my bedside table.  This RichardSolo iPhone Wireless Charging System could remove at least one wire from my tangle.  The charging case looks as sleek as any I've seen for iPhone, and it's available in [...]

With the always-online connectivity of smartphones these days, the folks making chargers are trying to keep up as much as those developing better battery chemistry. If you're one who can't quite make it through the day on a full charge, or if you travel and need to take along a charger, you've probably been irritated [...]

truffol-autograph-1

Several months ago, I reviewed a few cases from Truffol. I loved them, but they caused signal degradation. Truffol took some of the comments they heard and went a step further when developing their latest product, the Truffol Autograph leather skin. Instead of a case, they have taken their high quality leather and made a [...]
