iClever 6 Port USB Travel Wall Charger-1

Is it me, or does just about every device I own now plug into a USB charger? My cell phone, my camera, my Bluetooth headphones, even my flashlight batteries. I love my devices, but I never seem to have enough USB ports or USB ports with enough power to charge my items in a timely [...]

RAV Solar - 1

Most of us Gadgeteers either spend some time daily in places with power (for sleep, if nothing else) or have battery back-up devices that we can use to recharge our devices. But sometimes, whether we’re out on a job site, or biking, or camping for long periods, we may be “off the grid” electrically, even [...]

Everybody can use more USB chargers, right?  True, but you need to make sure that the USB charger can charge your most power-hungry gadgets before you waste money buying it.  You don't want the charge to take longer than the battery life because you're trying to use an under-powered charger.  Slow charges shouldn't be a [...]

large-leather-charging-tote

Most of the charging bags we've featured on The Gadgeteer have been small clutches, just big enough to hold your phone and maybe a credit card or two and not much else.  They might work as a "go to lunch" bag, but you'll probably need to put the charging case in a bigger bag that [...]

In my never-ending quest for power, with thirst-hungry gadgets all over my house, my car, and my office, one of the biggest problems I have is being able to charge multiple devices at once.  For example, when you travel and stay in hotel rooms, if you are lucky you have one of those lamps beside [...]

Owners of multiple mobile devices realize that their gear bag or their power strip at home can quickly become a jumble of power adapters.  Sometimes you can share a single charger between multiple devices, but then you're limited to charging only one of your devices at a time.  With the ARCTIC Home Charger 4500 Four [...]

I just put an Elfa shelving unit in my tiny kitchen with no counter space.  I now have a place to work while preparing food, but plugging in my little KitchenAid chopper requires me to crawl under the unit and reach behind the water cooler to plug it in.  I was thinking about getting a [...]
