I hate wires. No, really, I hate wires. I was one of the first people I knew to get WiFi in my house, I’ve never had a landline, and I used to joke that I cut the cable cord out of principle alone. All of this said, it’s no surprise that I’m big on wireless charging. I’ve got a Tylt VÜ at work, an official Nexus wireless charger (with magnets!) on my nightstand, and a DiGiYes dual-spot wireless charger in my living room. Now, with the iOttie Easy Flex Wireless Qi Standard Charging Car Mount, I’ve got wireless charging in my car, too. We first saw the Easy Flex Qi, as I’ve come to call it, and do remember that Qi is pronounced “chee”, at CES 2014, where it won a coveted CEA Innovations Award for its fantastic design and functionality. We’re glad to finally get our hands on one to see how it fairs under review.

There are always rumors about new iPhones coming out, but now we have KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo predicting that Apple will release two “all-new design” iPhones, which will come in 4.7 and 5.5-inch variants.
Our mobile products are like our lifeline. If our smartphone or tablet dies we sort of feel lost. The thing is with our mobile devices they are dependent on their batteries. If you don’t use your device that much during the day you can go a full day on a charge, but most people need to charge their device throughout the day. What if you are on the road or in a place where a wall outlet is not available? That is where Power Banks come in. Today we will be checking out ADATA’s PV100 4200mAh Power Bank. It has a slim design and 2.1A power output so it should charge your devices quite fast. Read on as we take a look…
Being someone who is constantly using different gadgets USB ports are very important to me. They are what charge most of my gadgets and of course I use them for USB flash drives and hard drives too. One thing that always annoys me about changing devices is that some USB ports will charge devices faster than others. What if you could tell which USB port was providing the most power? That way you could plug in your critical devices like your smartphone into this port and other non-important devices into the low power ports. Well that is where the Practical Meter comes it. It works as a pass-through that you plug into your USB port and it will tell you how much power it is delivering. The device also ships with a nifty fast charging cable. Read on as we check it out.
LG was showing a few things at CES Unveiled, but the real buzz was about their G Flex Curved smartphone. This is the worlds first curved flexible smartphone. That means not only is the smartphone curved but it is also flexible meaning you actually can flatten it out if you want!

Patriot is known for their RAM and flash storage. Although, mobile accessories is a huge market and can’t be ignored.

Our review unit is 7800mAh, near the top end of the FUEL+ line. It can simultaneously charge two devices with its 1A and 2.5A output USB Type A ports, includes blue battery status LEDs, and Patriot is so confident about their FUEL+ products, they provide a two year warranty.
I’ve owned my Galaxy gear for roughly a month now, and have to say that it is honestly a surprise. I was sketchy at first because of the $300 price tag and how much would I be using this, but honestly, I’ve used this thing more times a day than I thought possible. I get tons of notifications a day, and now instead of pulling into my pocket to grab my phone, I just flip the wrist and see what notification popped up. The 1.6-inch AMOLED screen is crystal clear, sharp and gives off great colors. Here’s my take on the Samsung Galaxy Gear…
The Verge recently issued a report on the Nokia Normandy which still remains to be quite a mystery and we don’t really know which of the rumors to trust. The recently revealed piece of information shows that this phone is going to be an Android based phone.
