EasyAcc 10,000mAh portable battery mini-review

EasyAcc 10,000mAh portable battery mini-review

A portable battery seems like an unnecessary burden until that one time you really need it, then it's worth its weight in gold. Not all external batteries are created equal, however, and investing in the wrong one could mean endless fiddling to make sure it's still charging, trouble getting it to hold a charge, and frustration when it fails in the middle of your weekend getaway. I recently got my hands on EasyAcc's 10,000mAh portable battery, and having been burned (in the non-literal sense) by external batteries in the past, I was skeptical about how it would hold up.

August Connect and August Smart Lock review

August Connect and August Smart Lock review

Your connected home is only complete if it’s secure, and that starts at the front door. Though several cameras and motion sensors plan to tell you if something is going on, there’s no better first step for security than a locked door. There’s also nothing cooler than locking and unlocking your home from a phone, and the peace of mind you get from checking in on your front door from anywhere is comforting. Beautiful enough to reside in the Apple Store, we wanted to know if August was just a pretty face, or a home automation must-have.

Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Review

Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Review

Lenovo has been pushing out some interesting devices, and its new YOGA Tablet 2 is one of the biggest stands outs among them. How so? For starters, you can hang it on the kitchen wall when you're trying to follow a recipe. The hinge is rounded, doubling as a grip when holding the tablet in portrait orientation. This same hinge allows the "display" to be adjusted in the same smooth increments as a laptop when attached to the accompanying keyboard. Do these features round out an already excellent tablet, however, or are they merely gimmicks? Read our full review to find out!

Inateck BTSP-10 Plus bluetooth speaker review

You have choices when it comes to Bluetooth speakers. Lots of choices. Be it bombastic offerings from big-name manufacturers or impressive boxes from smaller companies, the market is saturated. With that, we got our hands on Inateck’s latest, a Bluetooth speaker with a small footprint that wants to do big things. Dual 1.5-inch speakers promise big sound, with Inateck boasting a virtual 3D output. Portable, lightweight, attractive, and seemingly worth a look, we decided to put the Inateck speaker to the test.

TYLT Vu Solo wireless charger review

TYLT Vu Solo wireless charger review

Wireless charging is more trick than treat for most smartphone users, but those able to take advantage understand its benefits. Set your phone down on a pad, and it charges. There are no fussy cables to pick up, and you don’t risk screwing up your charging port (which does much more than just charge your phone). With TYLT’s new Vu Solo charger, setting your phone down on a wireless charging pad is much less a guessing game than it has been, as a neat alignment guide keeps your charging in focus.

Sling TV Review: Taking TV back

Sling TV Review: Taking TV back

As I write this review, SportsCenter is on in the background. I’ve not watched ESPN in years — actual years — so this review is like revisiting a memory. I’m a bit of a cord cutter (I still get Internet via the cable company), and there are several reasons for that. Sling TV brings cable back into my life, but in the best way possible. I don’t have to re-up some cable contract, and it works with streaming devices I have on every TV. It’s must-have TV. Here’s why.

Samsung SSD T1 review; a pocketable powerhouse

Samsung SSD T1 review; a pocketable powerhouse

Hard drives are standard fare for any desktop user, but spinning mechanical drives are quickly ceding ground to SSD. For many reasons (better life, performance, and smaller sizing among them), we are looking to SSD as the future of file storage. At CES, Samsung caused quite a ruckus, with many people looking toward their new SSD T1 external hard drive for reason to be excited. An SSD is always welcome news, and the T1 is surprisingly small. Is it still powerful, though? We put it to the test.

Drop Scale Review: no need to weigh your options

Drop Scale Review: no need to weigh your options

Cooking can be confusing and difficult for some, as can technology. So what happens when you merge the two? Will it become a disaster of epic proportions, or do cooking and technology make an odd couple who end up balancing each other out. Drop, a connected kitchen scale that links directly to your iPad, wants answers to those questions. So do we. In our review of Drop, we’re going to run it through its paces, as well as enjoy delicious (or possibly terrible) things we make along the way.
