Smartphones rock. Running out of battery and being stuck in a panic situation sucks. You have options, though. You can carry around a spare battery pack, utilize a battery case if there are models available for your phone, and of course, plug in to some sort of outlet be it wall or car. Today, we’re looking at the latter most option with TYLT’s RIBBN car charger. What is it? The RIBBN is more or less your standard auto charger for your mobile device. However, it’s not exactly “normal”. For starters, it has an extra USB port that delivers a potent…

Fuse Chicken. What does that bring to mind? It’s probably not a gadget accessory. While Fuse Chicken may have one of the oddest names of an electronic/gadget maker we’ve come across, don’t let it deter you. Out of all the accessories and “gadgetry” we’ve checked out, the Fuse Chicken Bobine is perhaps one of the biggest surprises that’s come through our doors. Let us explain… Hardware It’s really quite simple. The Bobine is a charging cable for Lightning devices, specifically iPhones/iPod Touches. The utility comes in the stiff but bendable metal casing around the cable. Plug the Bobine into your…

Wireless charging is one of the most underrated features a smartphone in 2015 and beyond can have. Yeah, it isn’t as fast as some of the QuickCharge 1 and 2.0 products out there. But it is faster than normal USB charging (provided you’re source is an AC outlet). The real benefit is also found in not needing to constantly unplug and re-plug in your device when you pick it up and place it back down. Today, we’re taking a look at TYLT’s Vu Solo, a Qi wireless charging device that we’ve had camping out on our desk for the last…

Running out of juice is never a fun thing. And it never fails, the party stopping battery alerts almost always occur when you are most dependent on your phone for some specific function. Good battery life is of course one of the things you can factor in when buying a device. Aside from that, though, you’ve got battery packs and lastly, going old school and plugging in to recharge your device. The last option is often ignored. Owners of multiple gadgets who have to carry multiple cables will gladly take anything that makes their lives easier and their bags less…

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. They’re not always super portable though. Option 3: something super portable like Proporta’s new TurboCharger 1000. What is it? It’s an ultra portable battery charger for emergency situations. Why should you want it With only 1,000 mAh of power on board, you’re not going to recharge your phone to 100%. Hell, you probably won’t make it past 30-40%. But there-in is the beauty. This…

Bluetooth speakers are a dime a dozen. Every company around has a handful of options to choose from, and we’ve tried most of them, and even reviewed a lot of them here. Trying to figure out what is fluff and what is actually a viable option has been fun, interesting, and tiresome. We’ve dedicated tons and tons of hours into reviewing, testing, dizzying, and listening to tons of hours worth of horrible music, finding the perfect bluetooth speaker for you. Offering a speaker giving you the bang for your buck that you are probably looking for isn’t as easy as…

Anyone with a dream and a few bucks can get a kickstarter to make a battery pack these days. And even if they surpass the seemingly insurmountable odds, chances are something like a battery pack isn’t going to stand out amongst the sea of other, very similar battery packs. But HooToo (ironically funded via crowdsourcing), has something that might do just that. You see, it’s not just a battery charger. It is a dual USB wall charger, personal cloud, travel router, external battery, and hotspot all wrapped into one, small black square(ish) case. Charger This part is pretty easy -…

We’re battery case/pack connoisseurs around here. With all the gadgetry that we pick up, additional power is a must. Unu is one such company that has been around a little while now that manages to make some pretty awesome battery accessories at pretty affordable prices. This time around we’ve got their 10,000 mAh unit in house. And let us just say, for those of you with both iOS and non-iOS devices (which all pretty much use microUSB to charge), this battery pack is going to be very tempting. Besides the dual high-output (1 and 2.1 amp) ports, you get a…

There are no shortage of bluetooth speakers to choose from. Really, there are so many you’re never going to be able to truly compare them all. Luckily there are people out there willing to take on that burden *waves*. Beacon Audio sent us over their new Blazar cube shaped bluetooth speaker to give it a rundown and see how it stacks up. Let’s get to it. Design & Features If looks are important to you, the Blazar will probably please you. It’s made out of aluminum and therefore, has a nice, weighty feel to it. The aluminum (naturally) makes it…

It goes without saying that there are a few big names in the bluetooth speaker world that most people know. Outside of those few, brand awareness drops off a cliff. But every now and then we stumble on someone we just haven’t ever heard of before. This time, that company is Red Planet Sounds. Thankfully, they found us and sent us one of their bluetooth speakers to try out – their tiny Sub Sonic. Features & Design The Sub Sonic is one of the smallest bluetooth speakers we’ve used, measuring in at ~3 inches in diameter and roughly the same…
