It’s been a long time coming, but the spaceship has finally landed at Bitbitbyte. D-Link’s latest series of “ultra” routers including this one, the AC3200, definitely bring a spaceship to mind. The wide, sharp angles and triple duo of antennas look menacing. But is the actual performance as good as the physical looks (and price) elude to? Physical If we had to judge a book by it’s cover, we’d say D-Link did a pretty damn good job. While not everyone will like the more in-your-face design that doesn’t exactly “fit in” on the ol’ AV shelf under the TV, it…

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…

“The iPhone is too thin” – it’s a belief we’ve maintained as Apple continues to shrink it more. But alas, every now and again, something eventually ends up working out. In this case, the ever increasing thinness of the iPhone now means once porky battery cases now feel almost manageable when wrapped around an iPhone. Phonesuit is one such battery case manufacturer that we’ve covered a lot of the years. They build functional, minimalistic, and most importantly, quality battery cases for iPhones. Today, we’re looking at their latest iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models, the Elite Pro. Hardware & Specs…

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…

Every year the smartphone junkies look to a few select manufacturers for their next-gen purchase. At least in the U.S., the Android field is primarily HTC, Samsung and LG at this point with Motorola and Nexus phones being more niche (but still great) products. And while we’ve already seen Samsung’s hand with their S6 (review here) and HTC with the M9 (review soon), it is time to look at the final piece of the Android trifecta, LG. The G4 as it is called may not feature a clever or overly thought out name. But what it does have, is a…

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…

After the more or less disappointing sales of the Galaxy S5 (and several years of people constantly lambasting Samsung for making plastic phones), Samsung really had to do something different with the S6. And while they chose to again take a design from something that’s already been out on the market as opposed to something totally original, we’re to the point where we simply don’t care anymore. If it’s a good ph one through and through, then that’s that. And after 2 weeks with the Galaxy S6 Edge, we have to say we’re pretty sure it’s “that”. Hardware With an…

With each passing day, more and more “smart” home gadgets are announced and released. And while you can certainly go crazy with everything from smart outlets to large appliances like a dish washer, sometimes it’s the small things that matter most. Add to that, those small things are often a lot more approachable on the price front. Today, we’re taking a look at Belkin’s WeMo $99 smart/LED lightbulb starter kit. Hardware & Setup Upon opening the box you’re presented with a small amount of documentation, two LED WeMo lightbulbs and the AC hub. Setup is pretty straight forward: Plug in…

In the TV world, it’s all about 4K. Thinness is a hot commodity as well. But no matter what TV you’re looking at there’s always some inherent limitations, namely price re: size of the display and portability. If you want to pick up a flat screen it’s generally pretty easy. But you either need a stand or wall mount in the next location. That’s where HD projectors can come in handy. While price won’t usually be a saving grace (good HD projectors often cost more than a decent HD “normal” TV), if you’re willing to pay and want a large,…
