TechnologyTell Review: Limefuel L60X Battery and Wall Charger

When it comes to going out for a day and bringing my work with me, I prefer to travel light. A recently acquired canvas pack is perfect for my necessary gadgets and every day carry (EDC) items. As such, smart choices for weight and functionality is what keeps my bag from becoming overstuffed. How else am I supposed to bar hop like a creative, social butterfly?

Booq Boa flow tech backpack makes a comeback in graphite

Choosing a bag or backpack for tech and gadgets can be a very personal thing. In a way, it’s an accessory in and of itself. Just like with the devices we own and clothes we wear, bags project an image of the type of person we want to appear as. With so many options out there, why would one settle with any random design?

Legion Meter nearly doubles smartphone, tablet charge rate

Those of us with busy schedules tend to be a little impatient sometimes. With so many tasks to accomplish before the day’s end, we tend to prefer results happening right now. Unfortunately, there are things that (safely) can’t be rushed: traffic, pumping gas, drip coffee, and so forth. Charging mobile devices is also on that list, but that can be changed with a new tool by PLX Devices.

Multitool GOkey is battery, cable, storage, and locator

When it comes to every day carry (EDC), what one has on his/her person speaks volumes. Each piece serves a specific function, be it utility, convenience, or simply a reflection of likes or personality. This is especially so when it comes to key ring tools.

Nod, gesture control universal remote ring on pre-order

When it comes to wearable tech, I think there’s been too much focus on the wrist and not enough on the fingers. Luckily, we’ve seen a few of these projects succeed funding: the NFC ring, Ring, and Fin. These devices allow users to control their gadgets via gestures. There’s a new contender for finger fun, but this one appears to take control one step further.

External battery packs can now.. jump start vehicles?

I had to read it twice to believe it too. Normal news about external battery packs typically involve bigger, smaller, or possibly some new brand entering the market. But to equip a compact, portable, external battery pack with the ability to jump start a standard 4- or 6-cylinder vehicle? Mind is blown.

Tech wearables, monitors finally seeing fashion influence

Although wrist-mounted tech and activity monitors haven’t been around that long, they’re already wearing out their welcome. A person has only so much wrist real-estate. After you put on your watch, cuff bracelet, awareness bracelets, kabbalah string, slap bracelets, paracord/survival bracelet, and some of those silly bandz to make your kids happy, another object just runs the risk of making you look like an out of control candy raver.

Binder-friendly Jumpr Slate 10k ditches bulk for slim

When it comes to external battery packs, there tends to be a conundrum of capacity versus bulk. That is, unless you don’t mind carrying around bricks all day. Even so, most of the best batteries share similar shapes: a flask, over-sized deck of cards, or half a can of spam. No matter the flavor, they more »
