Screen protectors are a dime a dozen. But don’t automatically assume that if you’ve seen on screen protector, you’ve seen them all. Some of the cheapest options aren’t worth your money or time, no matter how cheap. They’re often a crappy material that doesn’t let your finger slide well or just look downright terrible. Of course, spending a small fortune isn’t always the best course either. How’s a lost consumer such as yourself supposed to find a good screen protector in this sea of madness? We’ve previously looked at the Spigen Glass.t (and tr) and found those to be wholly…

“Wireless charging’s a gimmick!” When the first products started creeping out a few years ago, it did seem like for most scenarios, wireless charging was more of a bullet point for the sake of a bullet point. You still needed to plug a base in and the distance between the base and the phone was measured in millimeters. Fast forward a few years and things are a bit different. While you still need to set your phone down on a pad of sorts, the options are growing, and that growth is increasing too. Today I’m checking out TYLT’s VU wireless…

Oh geeze. “Another battery pack”, you say. Well, truth be told, I have an affinity of sorts for battery packs/cases. I shudder at the thought of being left without a working phone. Such a thing means I’m disconnected from the world. And as sick/disturbing as that may sound, it’s the simple fact. I must have a working device hence my army of battery packs. Considering the rather basic nature of such an item, it’s easy to see how differentiation between competing models is slim to none. The saying “once you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all” very much rings true…

Bluetooth speakers are like iPhone cases. There are so many it’s impossible to keep track of. Quite simply, whatever you could possibly want a bluetooth speaker to look like, you should have very little problems finding one. Here at Gadgetsteria we’ve seen many different kinds of speakers pass through. Whether it’s design, features or simple marketing, every manufacturer tries their hardest to get you to ignore the competition. For NudeAudio, they decided to first capture your attention with design. Design & Features When you first open the box you’ll notice a decent amount of attention was spent on design details.…

Mike and I have been reviewing screen protection and iPhone cases for years now, we love to beat the stuff we’re sent day in an day out. Screen protection is a hit or miss category though, the favorite at the GS camp is Spigen’s Glas.t line. We’ve seen that film that almost every company shell out, and we know when it’s just another filler for our drawers. Spigen’s has the right idea with their tempered glass screen protects, they are heavy duty, tough as balls, but you do sacrifice a slim design when using them. So when I see a…

We first saw the Atlas from Incipio back in January when we were trolling CES. We had a pretty extensive tour through the Incipio booth, as they were getting ready for the iPhone 5 Apocalypse by releasing a case to protect the iBaby from any and everything. LifeProof was going strong, and even though we love what we see from LifeProof, we were really intrigued with Incipio’s offering, mainly because of the water damage warranty that it comes with. At this time, it was really unheard of, although we do see some companies offering similar plans. But back in January…

Charging a gadget hasn’t changed much in over a decade. Cable specs come and go. But at the end of the day, you’re still left plugging in a long leash of bundled wiring to sync electrons to and fro. Enter the future: wireless charging. While it’s not completely 100% wireless since the wireless base needs a power cable, the fact that your phone is free from the leash makes it so much nicer. Mobile Fun was kind enough to send us one of the M-Cloud Qi Wireless chargers that they carry so we could put it through its paces and…

Back in June we let you in on a little information on a new product in its Kickstarter phase from Donat Saguy, and if you can recall we’ve featured everything that has made it’s way into production so far. The Smart Cargo arrived at our doorstep last Friday, and since I set forth to travel to Vegas early this week I thought there would be no better time to see what this could do to make my iPad travels a little less messy. The Kickstarter is live and will be running for another week, so use this review to decide…

You know the drill. The more tech savvy and internet points you have under your belt directly correspond to the amount you stress your battery (or something like that). We’ve looked at plenty of battery chargers here at Gadgetsteria in an attempt to help you, the smartphone flogger that you are make it through most of if not all of your work (and play) day. On today’s roster we have MyCharge’s AMP 2000 and 4000, the former with 2,000 mAh of power built in and the latter, 4,000 mAh. Let’s get to it. The Hardware If there was a fashion…
