Olight Warrior Mini Seasons flashlight review

REVIEW – A reliable flashlight is an important part of everyone’s EDC. But the downside of most flashlights is that their batteries always seem to be dead just when you need to use one. The Olight Warrior Mini limited edition flashlights solve this problem because you can recharge the battery while it’s still inside the …

Quiqlite TAQ Wallet review – Is it a wallet or a multi-tool?

REVIEW – The term “tactical” (ambiguous as it may be) has been thrown around a lot in the past few years, applied to everything from pants to pocketknives. So why not wallets, too? Today, we’re taking a look at the TAQ Wallet from Quiqlite. What is it? The TAQ Wallet is a self-proclaimed “WORLD’S ONLY” …

Andar Helm leather MacBook Pro case review

REVIEW – We live in a world where most gadgets are made from plastic or metal, and where they are often more functional than beautiful.  Last year I reviewed a pair of handmade, leather wallets from Godbolé, and I fell in love with their craftsmanship and the beauty of full grain leather.  Can this same …

TaoTronics SoundLiberty 95 Wireless Earbuds review

REVIEW – In the evenings I like to kick back and relax by watching videos on my iPad.  Usually I’m watching a movie on Netflix or Amazon Prime, videos on YouTube, or a Dota 2 tournament on Twitch.  For my audio, I typically use a pair of Apple headphones, the older wired variety.  Lately I’ve …

Pitaka Air and MagEZ iPhone 12 Pro Max case review

KIKR S1 dual wireless charging stand review – My new favorite wireless charger

CROWDFUNDING REVIEW – I’ve been a big fan of wirelessly charging my smartphone for years. I remember back in the day before it was built into most phones, that I hacked my Samsung Note2 to have that feature. The bulk of wireless chargers that we see on the market are flat slabs which don’t allow …

LeCow custom leather Traveler’s Notebook cover review

REVIEW – I have loved notebooks, diaries, and journals since I was a young kid. As an adult, my fondness for stationery has gotten a little more refined. These days I don’t settle for a composition book and a Bic pen. I want my notebooks to feel AND look unique. One way to do this …

Tribit QuietPlus 50 ANC wireless headphone review – You get what you don’t pay for

  REVIEW – Earlier this year I said that the Tribit StormBox Micro Bluetooth speaker was the audio bargain of the year. Now I get to review a new headphone from Tribit, the affordable QuietPlus 50.
