iPad Pro iFixit teardown 002

It’s somewhat depressing that Android manufacturers increasingly outfit their flagship smartphones with fast-charging capability while iPhones, and especially iPads, still take forever to charge from zero to hundred percent. And if you happen to actually use your iOS device while it’s connected to power, you’ll experience even slower-than-usual charging times.

But as it turns out, there’s one simple trick everyone should employ every time they plug their iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into a power brick in order to make it charge faster…. Read the rest of this post here

Nomad-Pod-Pro-Apple-Watch-and-iPhone

Those who need a portable battery pack for the Apple Watch that aren’t so keen on just plugging the USB end into the receiver of a battery pack and letting the magnetic end dangle around everywhere are going to be hard-pressed to find a good portable battery pack made specifically for the Apple Watch’s proprietary charging platform.

Fortunately, Nomad has the Pod Pro, which can be had on Amazon for $85, and is a great solution for on-the-go Apple Watch charging, and even includes a built-in Lightning cable for charging your device, whether it’s an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.

Blockhead makes your MacBook charging brick less annoying

Blockhead-AC-Adapter

I love my Mac, but honestly, I hate the AC adapter. The ‘wall wart,’ as I like to call it, sticks out so far from the wall that it can be incredibly inconvenient for plugging in behind couches and in other tight spaces.

Blockhead, which was only just recently announced, eliminates the annoying protrusion of Apple’s AC adapter and is now available from Ten One Design.

Now that the Blockhead is available for purchase, we’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on one. In this review, we’ll walk you through its design and how it looks…. Read the rest of this post here

BatteryBox Mini keeps your iPhone (and much more) powered while on the go

BatteryBox-Mini-Portable-Battery-Pack

Because I’m always out and about, and my iPhone can always use a good charge when I’m away from an outlet, external battery accessories are always of great interest to me. BatteryBox, which you may remember made it to both my top 5 accessories for iPhone and top 5 accessories for Mac lists, has long filled that void for me.

Nevertheless, I’ve been looking for something a little easier to carry around with me when I leave the house or leave the car, and something I can use a little more easily while walking around and while not carrying a backpack.

One solution I’ve found to work quite well for this need is BatteryBox’s little brother, dubbed BatteryBox Mini, which can be had on the BatteryBox website for less than $35. In this review, we’ll take you through the features of BatteryBox Mini and show you whether it’s a good investment for your needs…. Read the rest of this post here
