OmniCharge 20+ review: A ridiculously versatile portable battery

With nearly every charging port you could ever need, this thing will charge pretty much all your things.

Here’s the thing about portable batteries. They tend to either be small with just a couple of options for connections, or they’re huge with the ability to charge all the things.

The OmniCharge 20+ is a happy medium. It’s not small — just under 5 inches square, and a little more than an inch thick. (If you’re old enough, it’s  [Read More…]

Doogee S90 review

What constitutes a flagship phone experience in your eyes? We can ask that question to ten people and get ten answers. Everyone has their own preferences and ideas and there’s no magic pill for the entire industry.

Generally speaking, when we think of a “flagship”, our mind goes to the best of what’s available in its particular space. For phone consumers in the US this conversation is often centered around the Samsung Galaxy S, Galaxy Note, Apple’s iPhone, and the  [Read More…]

iFreezer Go20 Mobile Fridge review: A cool tech upgrade for any patio party

I get really excited whenever a product review gets me out of my home office — especially if it leads to me enjoying the spoils of summer with delicious food. You see, I’m one of those outdoorsy tech nerds who’s always busting out some new drone or portable speaker at the cabin or around the campfire at night. There’s just something about using the right tech to enhance the mood that makes me happy.

So when the opportunity  [Read More…]

Polk MagniFi MAX SR review

If you’re like us, you grew up in a house with one, maybe two, televisions. They were big, clunky, and heavy as hell. Today’s modern homes have TVs or screens in nearly every room. What’s more, they’re lighter, cheaper, and smarter than ever.

If you’re like us, you maybe knew one or two people with surround sound stereos and killer systems in the family room. Maybe it was your uncle who had the cabinet setup with an equalizer, dual tape  [Read More…]

Polk Command Bar review: Alexa has never sounded this good

The $ 249 Command Bar does a fantastic job integrating Amazon’s virtual assistant.

Amazon and Google offer a range of smart speakers tailored for different use cases, but the main issue with these devices has always been sound quality. The Echo Plus (2nd gen) delivers much better sound over its predecessor, but it still isn’t anywhere close to a budget 2.1 setup.

That’s where products like Polk’s Command Bar come in. The soundbar features Alexa integration —  [Read More…]

Mophie powerstation line (2019) review

When it comes to portable power solutions there are few brands, if any, that we admire as much as mophie. The brand consistently releases powerful and efficient portable chargers and seems to embrace and back the right trends.

Whether it’s creating a protective phone case with a built-in battery or a big brick of a power supply, or something in between, the mophie product line always scores well in our eyes. The trend continues in mid-2019 we take a look  [Read More…]

Movo Smartphone Video Kit review

We live in an era where anyone can be a star. Just about everywhere you turn there’s a new upstart YouTube or Twitter personality garnering lots of attention. Today’s smartphones make it easier than ever to create fun, interesting, and compelling content. And, thanks to high-speed 4G LTE, we can even broadcast direct to YouTube and other platforms.

If you’ve ever considered dabbling in video content, you want to make sure you have the right tools. Sure, you can go  [Read More…]

Moto Z4 review: Here we go again

Skip this unless you’re a new Verizon customer.

The Moto Z series has gone through quite a few identity crises over the last four years. What was once Motorola’s showcase for its flagship hardware has since become a humbler midrange offering, as the company continues to shift away from the high-end space — a strategy that seems to be working, with Motorola turning a profit for the first time since being acquired by Lenovo in 2014.

Though  [Read More…]

Mobvoi TicWatch S2 review: Decent rugged smartwatch letdown by Wear OS

The TicWatch S2 is a decent option if you’re in the market for an affordable Wear OS smartwatch, but that’s not saying much.

Wear OS hasn’t gotten much love recently, and while Google rolled out a new Tiles feature that easily lets you view news headlines and your fitness goals, the platform as a whole needs an overhaul. Wear OS 2.0 was introduced last year, and while it brought forth a new interface, the underlying problems with  [Read More…]
