It becoming more and more difficult to find anyone with a smartphone who isn’t walking around with either a battery pack
or a Mophie or similar battery case for their device. Such are the power demands of the mobile lifestyle. These kinds of batteries work great for phone, and many are sufficient for tables, but what about larger game? What about powering your laptop through a flight that lasts several hours? Who makes a battery pack for that?
In today’s increasingly busy mobile world, keeping a backup battery on hand has become increasingly common. And if you are going to carry one, it had better have enough juice to not just handle your phone, but also tablets, e-readers, Smart watches, cameras, etc. You will also want one that has multiple charge ports and can output enough amperage to fast-charge your larger capacity devices.
The tablet stand is one of the first accessories that sprang up alongside the first iPad, and for good reason. There are lots of times, such as when watching video or reading, that having a little extra support for your tablet is a very handy thing. Having one that folds down to a credit card size is even handier. This stand from Neva Tech gives users plenty of choices when it comes to device angle, and the front bar adjusts to allow devices of various thicknesses. It’s simple, but effective, and that is the hallmark of a great accessory.

Do you ever feel like your Apple EarPods or AirPods are just going to fall right out of your ears? Or DO they actually fall out on you? I’ve never had this issue, but my wife does, and I have heard from plenty of other users who have problems with this design, as well.
I love my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, but let’s face it, neither is exactly inexpensive, and not everyone needs or wants this setup. For those with a different model of iPad or an iPhone who would still like to take advantage of a stylus, the Adonit Switch is a superb choice. It is versatile, inexpensive, and far more precise than most standard capacitive styli.
You know the kind I’m talking about. The plastic or metal stick with a kindergarten crayon tip on the end that’s absolutely useless. The Switch’s Precision Disk creates an exact contact point, giving you the same level of precision as a Bluetooth or Active Capactitive Stylus, without the much higher price tag.
Summer is upon us and the weather is heating up. It’s the time of year to get out there and swim, hike, bike, play sports, get the grill going, and just generally live outside. The G-DROP Submersible Bluetooth Speaker is the perfect Summer music accessory, as it can go wherever you go and keep up with whatever you are doing.
Between trying to expand the memory of your iOS devices, handle and organize your photos and videos between cameras and other devices, and keep your iPhone and/or iPad charged, you can end up with a pile of dongles and adapters if you aren’t careful. The iKlips miReader from Adam Elements can take the place of all them in one small, easy to use accessory.
A world of computers and gadgets has one unpleasant side-effect- a world of cables cluttering up your life. All of those devices have to have power and be charged. The price of wireless accessories is that now, even our keyboards, mice, headphones, and headsets have to be charged, as well. I know my office desk is overrun with cables on a daily basis for this very reason.
This special from our Deals site is a no-brainer for Apple users. Apple sells a single 1 meter (3.8 foot) Lightning Cable for a retail price of $19.99. In start contrast, this three pack of 6.5 foot MFi Lightning Cables is only $21.99. Having a three pack will allow you to keep one in the car, maybe one in the kitchen, and stock up for those children who have a habit of losing or wearing out their charging cables more quick;y than we would prefer. I am WELL acquainted with the latter, myself.
Do you live in an older home? Do you have living areas where your main furniture is away from the walls? Do you hate unsightly cables and cords draped across the floor? If you can answer yes to any of the above, then you’ve probably found yourself short of power with nowhere to plug in a Lightning or other charge cable. If so, Mega Tiny has a very creative solution that may be just what you’ve been looking for.
