Now that I can charge up my Galaxy S6 in next to no time (relatively speaking) through its proprietary fast charge unit, I want every device that I possess to be able to have that capacity.

This is where PortaPow saw the need and has come to the rescue with its PortaPow Fast Charge Data Block Adaptor and Cable.

Does it work?

Read more: Galaxy S6 Essentials: the Samsung S-View Case and Wireless ChargerEvery time Samsung releases a new phone in the Galaxy lineup it seems we are doing a quick review of some essential accessories, courtesy of our friends at MobileZap.


This time around we also stuck with the original Samsung products in the hope of a better user experience.

We might change our mind on one of these products though...

Read more: Zeiss VR One: a Virtual Reality Work in Progress
Terms like virtual reality and augmented reality have been around for some time and it is only fairly recently that we have some applications and hardware available for consumers to test out these concepts.
One of the arguably better headsets seems to be the Zeiss VR One, which is the one that MobileZap sent us to test out.


Did it live up to expectations?


Well, it shows great potential, but...
let's see how it all panned out for me.

 

VisionTek Wallet Drive: Could Be Worth More Than Your Own Wallet...

Read more: VisionTek Wallet Drive: Could Be Worth More Than Your Own Wallet...
We all know we can't have enough external storage devices. Great for backup, sharing, travelling. Most of them have their own housing and power supplies but when you do a heart transplant on your laptop and put in an SSD, what are you gonna do with that naked hard drive you just pulled out? It probably has more capacity than that SSD but you need to have an enclosure for that.


That's where the VisionTek Wallet Drive comes in. The cheapest and best solution to get many more years out of that drive.


It's a very simple accessory so we can keep this mini review also pretty simple.

I can't say that I've been looking for a new mouse since the Logitech MX Revolution which we reviewed eons ago, is still calling my office desk home. It is a most comfortable extension of my hand.
When we were asked to review the Recon Visenta there was one outstanding feature that appealed to us from reading the specs: it's a foldable 9 mm thin device. Ideal for travelling.
But can something that thin also be comfortable?

But sometimes there is no place for one of these, like in the lounge room controlling your media server. This is where a wireless mini keyboard / trackpad can come in handy. With thanks to Brando, DigitalReviews gets to take the Lofree MT-200 2.4GHz Wireless Keyboard Touchpad for a review.

OSOMOUNTS: A Road Trip with NFC Enabled Car Mounts

One of my favourite car mounts of late has been one with a sticky back onto which your phone can quickly be mounted. And just as quickly be taken off single-handedly, which is probably more important.


Why would I be interested in reviewing a couple of car mounts where you need two hands to dismount your phone? Only when it offers that something extra which most car mounts don't have yet: an easy NFC connection.


Let's look at two implementations of the same idea from Osomount: one is a mount you can put on a windscreen or the dash and the other one can be inserted in one of the ventilation slots.

The great thing about the latest model in the Galaxy S series is that it is waterproof to some extent but this also means that the USB charging port had to be covered up. It's always a bit fiddly to get that little cover off and, more importantly, you have to make sure that it gets properly sealed again afterwards!
This little extra step in recharging your phone may not be the sole reason for wanting to look at wireless charging so let's see what else is on offer from Samsung to make life a little bit easier.

Today we are looking at 2 "official" solutions: the S Charger kit and the S View cover.

Most things of value are worth protecting. Particularly when you're travelling with it. You buy a new phone and the first accessory you buy is probably a decent case. Same with the Phantom 2 Vision. If you just fly from your backyard or your local park you can do without a case but if you go further afield a strong case is a must.


Today we are reviewing the GoProfessional hard case which impresses on a number of levels.
