In the world of battery chargers and cases, Unu is a brand and name that’s been around a little while, and yet fails to get the attention they deserve. We’ve looked at several UNU products in the past and been generally very pleased with them. They only area that was really looked as one that could be improved on by a decent margin was hardware/design quality. Things could often come across as cheap feeling or looking. Fast forward to the hear and now in 2014 and we’re looking at a second round of Unu gear, this time the Ultrapack Go…

The Galaxy S5 is already a pretty decent marathon runner as far as battery life is concerned. While we wished Samsung would have given it a few hundred more mAh under the back casing, we’re eternally happy that they made it a removable back casing that allows for bigger batteries and more versatile battery cases. Case in point: Tylt’s new Energi S5 battery case. With 2,800 mAh of power onboard, you’re set to get roughly ~75-90% of a charge when things like real-time usage (while it’s charging) and charging inefficiencies are factored in. Is it worth dropping $79.99 for? Let’s…

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…

Need power? Specifically, mobile power? There are a lot of battery packs, converters and adapters to make that possible. But once you toss in the need for rugged protection too your choices fall dramatically rather quickly. That said, MyCharge has some awesome battery packs for those needing both mobile power and protection from life’s bumps and shocks with their AMP XT range. The two models I’ve been using for the last couple months are the 3000 and 6000 XT. Power they have. But are they rough enough to earn the “rugged” badge? Build Quality & Design If you’re in the…

We’ve had a ChargeCard or two in our pockets over the last year. And while we it’s a fantastic tool to have, there were times we wished it were a little bit smaller. Introducing: the ChargeKey. The same premise of the ChargeCard shines through here. Ultimate portability that molds into your daily schedule while also providing much needed utility is what the ChargeCard was great at, and now, the ChargeKey as well. While the ChargeCard was at home in a wallet or purse sleeve, the ChargeKey is for those who walk to a slightly different tune. Attach the ChargeKey to…

Even though battery packs are in seemingly unlimited supply, available at any price point/mAh capacity and rebranded and resold to the earth’s end, there’s still room for more unique, innovate options out there. When I swung through Enerplex’s booth at CES, I was immediately struck by a couple of their offerings including the Jumpr Stack and Kickr IV. But what’s a battery accessory review without a look at something more traditional? Enerplex has something for that crowd too with the Jumpr Classic. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve had the pleasure of trying out Enerplex’s Kickr IV, Jumpr Prime…

Putting on a screen protector is one of the most difficult challenges in the modern world. Nothing is more infuriating than spending 10 minutes trying to get the perfect alignment and finally laying it down to find a spec of dust (or 10) snuck by while you were fiddling. No doubt, 1/4 of the prison population could probably be reduced if screen protectors were easier to put on. Anger is a powerful force. And TYLT is here to quell it. The Alin hardware itself is a simple clip. Nothing fancy yet oh so simple. To use the Alin, simply snap…
