There’s nothing worse than watching the remaining battery percentage fizzle away on a favorite mobile device when you’ve got work to do, or fun to have on that device. So good charging solutions are always a sight for sore eyes.
Like the Limefuel Lite USB Battery Pack – a good looking and compact device that packs a big battery life punch. It features a whopping 20,000mAh Lithium-ion battery and comes with 2 USB ports so you can charge up multiple devices at once.
Our Deals section has it on offer today at 58% off – at $34.99 instead of its standard $85 price tag.
Here’s a little of the elevator pitch for the Limefuel Lite and some of its key features:
Complete with a digital display that tells you how much juice you have left, this battery pack can charge your larger devices (such as tablets) 2-4 times, and smaller devices (such as phones) even more than that.
- 20,000mAh Lithium-ion battery

November isn’t the most flowery time of the year, at least not where I live anyway. So what better time for a lovely bit of flowery iPad art – like today’s featured iPad painting ‘The Flowers’.
It’s the work of Deborah McMillion, aka Hotel Midnight. Here’s her intro to the painting:
And so begins another tale. This is not about antique meanings of flowers but the stories of the Flowers themselves. Flowers that live and breathe around us. That are so beautiful but…Wish. To. Survive
Well, that sounds like fun theme to me. I also just love the colors in this one – from the flowers to the young lady’s blouse, to her pretty green eyes.
You can see more of McMillion’s work at her Hotel Midnight Flickr stream.

A gorgeous, big display has always been one of the signature features of the iPad, and it still is today. That display can become an ugly mass of fingerprints and germs with our normal use of the tablet though – just as can happen on any touchscreen device.
That’s where Mobile Cloth becomes an iPad user’s trusty friend. I first reviewed Mobile Cloth more than 4 years ago, and I went into that review feeling like one cleaning cloth was much like another. I soon found out that Mobile Cloth is a clear cut above – and I still nearly always have one around all my devices and use them on a daily basis.
My thanks to Mobile Cloth for being a long-time site sponsor and a site sponsor this week.

Who doesn’t like great iPad apps? At iPad Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPad app, or a few great iPad apps, here each week.
Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday. Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.
This week’s pick is VSCO Cam, a universal photo shooting and editing app for iPhone and iPad.
VSCO Cam was actually one of the app extensions teased this year at the iOS 8 announcement, but strangely enough, still does not feature any kind of photo extension. You’ve still got to do all the edits in the app, but that’s now a little easier with native apps across both types of iOS devices, and iCloud sync.
This means I can shoot photos on the iPhone and take advantage of the app’s manual focus and ISO settings, and then load the app up on my iPad to edit those same shots on the glorious 10-inch Retina Display. It honestly took a while for me to get into VSCO’s style of menu buttons and edits, but now that I am, I think it’s my favourite iOS photo editor.
There are options to view photos in nearly fullscreen, as large thumbnails, or as a smaller grid of pictures. This is why VSCO is great not just as an editing app, but as a place to sit back and actually review a day’s worth of shots.
There are simple on-screen sliders for adjusting contrast/brightness/saturation (and more), and the large numbers of filters can be adjusted so that they just add flavour to a photograph, instead of overtaking it with a shock of colour or graphical effects.
