Case Closed: Samsung Galaxy S10 Too Slippery to go Naked. We Review 5 Cases and the Duo Charger

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Accessories

Read more: Case Closed: Samsung Galaxy S10 Too Slippery to go Naked. We Review 5 Cases...I usually buy a case before getting a new phone. Either I’m too clumsy or my fingers are too slippery to safely hold one of those large slabs of glass...

And fortunately none of my phones – from the earliest Galaxy S2 onwards have suffered an early demise because of a cracked screen. Having a good case is absolutely essential for me.

Today we are looking at a few cases as well as the Samsung Duo Charger, courtesy of MobileFun - home of everything you need for your mobile lifestyle.

Hard on the heels of reviewing the top of the Jabra line in wireless “neckbuds”, we’re now putting the Jabra Elite 85h through its paces. This is the Top of the Wozza for Jabra-philes.

So, with amazing 36+ battery life and 8 (!) microphones to deal with calls and ANC, what else would justify the AUD499 price tag?

Let me count the ways...

The humble light bulb has undergone a dramatic series of changes in the last decade or so. Incandescents are out, so are fluros and CFL. Even just LED lights are humdrum items. In are the smart lights that can illuminate your indoor and outdoor world in 16 million colours.

Philips just launched a couple of outdoor units, the Lily spotlight and the Calla bollard. Both work in the Hue ecosystem.

We’re shining some light on them in this review.

Jabra has been instrumental in popularising soft neckband earbuds or “neckbuds”: basically wireless earbuds that are connected together and slung around your neck. Looks cool, you can’t lose them easily, fantastic battery life and more control over everything.

What’s there not to like?

And that’s not even half of it... Just hang around and let me show what’s good and what’s not.

PowerEx MH-C980 Turbo Charger Analyzer - Power Doesn't Always Come at a Price

Written by Kevin Cheng on . Posted in Accessories

Read more: PowerEx MH-C980 Turbo Charger Analyzer - Power Doesn't Always Come at a PriceConsumer battery technology has largely stayed stagnate for decades, although our demands for portable energy has dramatically increased at the same time. I still remember in the early 80s when dad brought home our first NiCd rechargeable batteries, we had the full range from AAA to D cells, and a basic charger with adjustable bays so we can fit the different sizes in. It was a dinky thing and if memories serves me correctly, a full charge takes 8 hours and god forbid if you interrupted the recharging process or let it run too long.

The MH-C9000 WizardOne is also affectionately known as the "Mother of all Chargers". For a product that was first released in December 2006 and still being raved about, that is a pretty solid backdrop for a new product.

 

Logitech MX Vertical - The more natural way to perform an unnatural task

Read more: Logitech MX Vertical - The more natural way to perform an unnatural taskMy chiropractor has long recommended me to change to a vertical mouse to ease the issues I have been having on and off with my body. I do an awful lot of HOMAK (Hands on Mouse and Keyboard) time and whilst I am not into RSI territory, I have been firmly told that the standard mouse is terrible for me. I can just hear my chiro's voice in my head "keep your elbow close in and at 90 degrees!"

Anson Belt - the perfectly fitted belt for all sized meals

Read more: Anson Belt - the perfectly fitted belt for all sized mealsNot every gadget runs on power, and the humble belt has seen some reinvention for the "modern" age.

Anson Belt was kind enough to send me one of their "belts without holes" set to review.

Writing an article about belts for me would be a travesty if I don't include a little background. I have a love hate relationship with belts, generally more hate than love although there was a period of peace and prosperity.

Some 8 years ago we published an article on the original Bushman, a portable fridge/freezer that has become legendary among campers and outback travellers.

We decided to revisit the brand and see what they’ve built on the reputation of their original product.

We came away amazed at the range of DC refrigeration products they offer but were really charmed by the smallest fridge/freezer in the lineup: the Bushman Roadie 15L.

Let’s get chilling and show you what’s so cool about the Roadie!
