Powerstick USB Charger

Powerstick USB Charger

In a world dominated by cell phones, computers and mp3 players it’s important to have a power source at hand no matter what. Sometimes a wall charger is just too inconvenient to carry around or wait around for and that’s where Powerstick wants to come in.

Belkin Clamp-On Surge Protector

Belkin Clamp-On Surge Protector

There are a few main things that people are likely to focus on when buying anything: does it take up a lot space, how versatile is it and how accessible is it. If your product falls within a decent range on any of these fronts people are more likely to pick it up without even worrying about the cost. In my opinion the clamp-on surge protector from Belkin fills all these shoes nicely.

CES 2008: IOGear Chargers

IOGear had a couple of chargers on display this week, the Slim Charger and the Rescue Charger. The Slim Charger is thin and lightweight, it’s small enough to fit in your pocket and will power your phone twice before it needs to be recharged itself. It’ll cost about $30.

CES 2008: APC AV’s C2 power filter discretely protects your flatscreen

It's ironic that people are willing to spend so much money on high-end LCD and plasma TVs but then blanch at buying power regulating equipment that could save their screen in the event of a lightning storm or power surge.  APC AV are certainly taking the "but it looks ugly" argument out of the equation with their C2 Power Filter; while it might resemble little more than a black shoe-box, the fact that it's merely two-inches deep means it can be sited behind a wall-mounted display.

 

CES 2008: Green Plug UPP

CES 2008: Green Plug UPP

Green Plug was the first developers of digital technology that enable real-time collaboration between electronic devices and their power sources. Today I got to experience their newest electronic component chip: the Green Plug Universal Power protocol (UPP). It’s for consumer electronics, residential and commercial builders, automotive, aircraft, and power tool manufacturers.

The Green Plug UPP, once connected with the DC Power hub, can simultaneously power multiple devices, each with their own specific voltage and power requirements. The technology within these devices will minimize solid waste by allowing you to keep your chargers for future use once the device becomes obsolete.

Systemax Endeavor series professional Workstations

Systemax Endeavor series professional Workstations

Systemax, the budget PC manufacturer who you might recognize from their significant presence on TigerDirect, has a couple of new Workstation systems you can have built to order. They aren't playing around with these systems either, they are just barely budget, but they aren’t using proprietary components, they are using name brand Intel hardware, Kingston RAM, and nVidia or ATI graphics.

There are two models with the primary differences being price and storage solutions. The $2199 model offers up SATA supporting 7.5k and 10k RPM drives, the $2299 model offers up an SAS solution that will support up to 15k RPM drives, the only thing that offers better response times than that is solid state.
