Mophie Powerstation Hub Review: One travel charger to rule them all

The Mophie Powerstation Hub wants to go traveling with you, and it has a good argument for why you might want to save a space in your carry-on for a combination charger, battery, and Qi wireless pad. After all, keeping your phone, tablet, noise-canceling headphones, and other gadgets charged up on the move can be more frustrating than it should be. On the one hand it's hotel rooms with one spare outlet; on the other, it's simply the bulk of carrying multiple adapters.

One Mix 3 Review – Smaller alternative to Surface Go

One Mix 3 Review – Smaller alternative to Surface Go

Our smartphones have become so powerful these days that it’s almost possible to do everything with them. That includes not only entertainment and web browsing but also “light work”, like emailing or frantically hammering out some text in Google Docs or Microsoft Word mobile.

While it may be possible to do almost everything on a mobile device, some still prefer the traditional form of a laptop or the benefits of a larger screen.

That fusion of portability and versatility is what the new breed of Ultra Mobile PCs is promising and the One Mix 3 is one of the first to arrive at the scene. We take it for a thorough run to find out if it delivers on that promise.

Traeger Pro 780 Review: Why your next pellet grill needs WiFi

Being a pit-master is a serious business, sweating over a smoker, tending its coals, and coaxing delicious flavors from hunks of meat after hours of careful cooking. It almost makes the Traeger Pro 780 feel a little blasphemous, in fact: the combination of picking from a range of tested recipes, dialing in a temperature, and then tracking it all from an app on your phone via WiFi could be accused of being too foolproof to be authentic.

Roborock S6 Review: One-button simplicity

Over the past several weeks we've been using the Roborock S6, a robot vacuum made to take on the biggest names in the industry. Roborock does not have the name recognition of the Ecovacs, the Neato, or iRobot's Roomba, but it's a robot. It doesn't know how popular it is - all it need to know is where to go to clean. With LDS Navigation and suction power equal to that of a Neato Botvac D7 Connected, this machine is ready to pick up all your dust immediately.

Acer Swift 7 Review: The impossibly thin ultrabook

Acer has launched one of the thinnest, lightest laptops available with the new Swift 7 model. This insanely svelte ultrabook sports a 14-inch display, two USB-C ports, and an impossibly slim design that demands attention. The laptop arguably sets a new bar for ultrabooks as far as portability is concerned, but how does it perform as an everyday work and play laptop?

2019 Audi e-tron Review: Grading on a Curve

Sometimes it takes the unexpected to really get the true measure of a car, but you can't say the 2019 Audi e-tron shies from a challenge. First in what the automaker expects to be a whole series of "e-tron" branded electric vehicles, the new SUV isn't just attempting to demonstrate that established car companies can keep up with new tech, but to change the conversation on what's important when it comes to EVs. An impromptu weather A/B test was just a bonus.
