USB charger

anker-powercore+26800-1

When you think of 26,800 mAh battery, do you think "Do I really need that much battery"? However, what if the power goes out for days? This is an unusual scenario, but it happens. You may also want to have a large portable battery when you're camping or when you travel for business for a few [...]

Qicent - 1

This is another product category that has moved from being a geeky thing to perfectly normal for people in all walks of life. In the last year, I have seen power cords and surge suppressors that have several USB plugs for charging phones or tablets in coffee shops, malls, bars, and waiting areas in healthcare [...]

SecuPower_5 Port USB Hub_6

It's come to this. In today's ever-increasing reliance on powered smartphones, tablets, Bluetooth speakers and any other gadget we're addicted to, they have one thing in common: they all require charging. If you have a family, charging can become a hassle when outlets around the house get clogged with charging plugs. It's similar to not [...]

EasyAcc-smart-charger-1

The deep dive.  That's what I call it when you try to plug up anything beside your bed at home.  Or in the hotel room.  Many times you have to go under the bed, or behind the headboard, or you have to move the bedside table, just to find an outlet.  And then you often [...]

Many people have more than one portable device that they carry with them. And whether they are smartphones, iPhones, tablets, Kindles,  iPads and even GPS units, one thing is for certain and that is that the device will eventually need charging at one point or another. But with all our running around and busy lifestyle, a wall [...]

tronsmart-usb-quick-charge-charger-1

I'm a big fan of Quick Charge 2.0 technology. They're just now becoming more commonplace in charging devices. So when the Tronsmart 5-Port Quick Charge 2.0 Desktop USB Charger became available for review, I requested it. So far, I've been very pleased with its performance and the only negative is that the unit is rather [...]

A charger that has full access to all ports is a bounty in itself, but finding one with 2 smart USB ports as well is just icing on the cake.  I currently have two power strips that have ports that are unusable because of crowding and it's maddening to me.  I rearrange them depending on [...]

USB has become the de facto charging or input method for many of the devices we own. Nowadays, you don't need to be a tech junkie to require extra USB outlets to charge all your devices. Even the tech challenged have cell phones, tablets, and Bluetooth speakers, all of which use a USB charging cord. [...]

The 12V port in my MINI Cooper is occupied with a USB car charger for my dashcam. I love using gadgets in my car, but hate how large and ugly the power adapters can be. I've been on the lookout for a smaller one for awhile now and may have found one that ticks all [...]

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 [...]

You can't have too many USB charging outlets when traveling, I say.  Today we look at the XPower E1, a rather unique take on the 12V to USB accessory with 3 ports, a built-in voltage display and a long power cord.

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 [...]

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 [...]
