For better or worse, Apple’s new super thin 12″ Macbook has a single port. While road warriors and those searching for the ultimate in simplicity, it’s a dream. Power users that also happen to favor small footprints and lightweight gadgets on the other hand, are going to find some 1st gen growing pains cropping up. Most notably, how the hell do you plug everything in? Adapters! While Apple’s official adapters for the new Mac are expensive (read: overpriced) and rather limited, the 3rd party market will quickly rush in to provide better and more useful solutions. Exhibit A: Hub+ As…

Mobile ASUS ASUS makes a lot of electronic devices. And to many people in the world, they’re a phone manufacturer too. For U.S. residents unfamiliar with ASUS’ mobile ‘wares, it’s worth at least checking out from time to time just see what’s out there (and what we’re missing). For 2015 there are two big items to talk about: the Zenfone 2 and Zenfone Zoom. The former is your typical flagship device with a 5.5-inch (Gorilla glass 3 encased) 1080p display.

Running low on juice while on the go? You could look for a wall outlet or USB port to plug into. But if you’re truly “on the go”, that’s not an option. Option 2: battery charger.

By this point you’ve probably come to realize that I have a fascination with battery chargers and cases. With all the products I’ve reviewed since I started back in 2008, one might think that every possible size, shape, capacity and idea has been thought of. In some ways you could say it has and that all current products are merely reinventing the wheel to a certain degree. Nonetheless, it’s always fun to get some new gadget in the mail. And as long as people keep sending me stuff, I’ll gladly give it a proper review. Tylt is a mobile accessory…

There have been quite a few iPhone battery cases on our test bench here at Bitbitbyte over the years. But one thing we can’t forget: the iPhone isn’t the only phone that could benefit from from a stylish and portable charging source wrapped up in the convenience of a case. Android phones, while featuring rather large batteries of their own are also powered by quad core processors, 1080p displays and other power hungry components. That’s where something like Unu’s Galaxy S5 battery case comes into play. It aims to bring charging to the Galaxy S5 much like Unu and other…
