Apple MFI Certified iPhone car charger from Satechi delivers 72W USB-C action

I don't often write about car chargers for smartphones, largely because the technology just... doesn't change all that often. Since the last time I wrote about a car charger, a significant amount's changed - enough that it makes sense to point out a product from a brand that I've come to trust over the past half-decade via their Apple MFI Certifications, top-notch industrial design, and long-lasting materials.

Nintendo Switch third-party dock bricking explained by an engineer

There is a rather big market for third-party Nintendo Switch accessories but the one thing that continues to worry Switch owners is the charging dock. Nintendo's Official version is large and expensive but third-party options risk bricking the gaming handheld. The latter has largely been blamed on Nintendo's implementation of the USB-C Power Delivery feature which is believed to be non-compliant with the standard spec. According to an electrical engineer, however, those third-party docks might be the ones to blame instead.

RODE Lavalier GO mic is designed to go with the RODE Wireless GO system

A few months ago, RØDE launched what it claimed to be the world's smallest mic system, the RØDE Wireless GO.

Jaybird Vista earbuds take the fight to Apple AirPods

Jaybird Vista earbuds take the fight to Apple AirPods

Jaybird has another pair of wireless earbuds on deck, and the company is making some pretty hefty claims about functionality. Dubbed the Jaybird Vista, these earbuds are Jaybird's "lightest, smallest, and most durable earbuds to date."

Galaxy Note 10 won’t ship with 45W fast charger but it does exist

While the Galaxy Note 10 has pretty much been leaked to death, including its availability, there are still some things that seem to be in debate.

Mokibo Bluetooth keyboard is also a large multi-touch touchpad

While there's a wide variety of keyboards and mice available for desktops users, users on the go have fewer choices if they want to keep the number of peripherals they bring low. There are Bluetooth keyboards that do come with a touchpad but those can hardly be called portable. Enter the Mokibo, a rather ingenious new keyboard that combines both keyboard and mouse in one thing and light package. Not by shrinking the touchpad to almost unusable levels but by enlarging it to the same size as the keyboard itself.

Sony MRW-S3 USB-C hub offers UHS-II card readers and 100W Power Delivery

USB-C brought a lot of functionality and convenience in a single port but it also brought a bit of confusion. Not all USB ports and accessories are created equal and, just like in the old USB-A and micro USB world, some accessories are for single uses only. Some computers these days, however, may have only one USB-C port for data and sometimes even for power as well. For those cases, Sony is introducing the MRW-S3 hub that will solve all those problems with a single USB-C port.
