Chuwi Hi-Dock Review

Chuwi Hi-Dock Review

There is no shortage of smartphone and tablet accessories of all kinds. We power banks and chargers of different wattage and technologies. We have stands and holders of all shapes and sizes. There are, however, only a few that combine these two traits: docks. And those that do are, more often than not, specifically designed for a specific model or OEM to the exclusion of others. Chuwi wants to do away with multiple wall chargers and multiple stands for those with multiple devices and it does so in a rather unique way. Chuwi calls it the Hi-Dock and it’s almost exactly what the doctor ordered. Almost.

Jawbone may just go out of business (sort of)

Today may be the last day we see Jawbone exist as the in-business device-maker we've known for the past half-decade.

Kado is a wall charger that fits in your wallet

There are two problems when trying to charge via wall sockets. One, there are so few such outlets. Two, wall chargers take up precious space. Even the iPhone's charger, short as it may be, is a fat and thick cube. If you're the type that obsesses over whether you have room for a charger in your bag, let alone your pocket, then the Kado is for you. It's a wall charger that is not only thinner than the thinnest smartphone, it thin enough to even fit inside your wallet.

One of the major advantages of the Nintendo Switch is the fact that it's portable. Unfortunately, that portability factor only really applies when you're using the console in tablet - playing it in TV mode requires that you use its somewhat bulky dock. Up until now, there wasn't a very good way to play the Switch on a TV without using the dock, but SFANS is looking to change that with its new portable dock for the Switch.

Luzli Roller headphones feature 13 folding links, $3k price tag

When it comes to headphones, nothing can beat the compactness and portability of ear buds.

A fidget spinner exploded and others may do the same

Are fidget spinners the new 'hoverboard?' Such may be the case after one family reports that their son's Bluetooth fidget spinner caught fire and exploded while charging, raising concerns about the quality of these battery-equipped models. Unlike ordinary fidget spinners, which operate using bearings and little else, a Bluetooth fidget spinner is a bit more modern, packing in connectivity to one's phone...and a battery that can overheat while charging if the product is poorly made.

InkCase i7 gives the iPhone 7 an e-ink screen on the back

The YotaPhone seems to have struck a chord among some smartphone users. The ability to have some information, or picture, always on display even when the phone's screen itself is off definitely useful. And having a handy ebook reader with you all the time is something bookworms would love. But the problem with the YotaPhone is not only was it limited to Android, it also meant having to buy a new phone, even if you were already an Android user. iPhone users, on the other hand, were out of luck. Now, however, they have fighting chance with the InkCase i7 finally launching on Kickstarter.
