With summer finally upon us many of us will be traveling whether it is to see family, go to the beach, or just unwind at a vacation spot.  Between all the traveling and the busy lifestyles many of us live, it is a huge inconvenience to be bothered with having to charge our electronics.  Many of us live by our mobile devices, they keep us organized, up to date, educated, and only a few taps away from our friends and family.  Samsung and Verizon wireless are trying to eliminate the need to charge as often and make charging happen more...

The Coocheer Power Strip came in a colorful sleeved box with the unit and product documentations enclosed.  The unit is roughly the size of a softball and features two standard three prong wall plugs as well as five USB ports that can provide up to a total of 40W.  This means that two devices can charge at 2.4A while three more can charge at 1A.  There is a slot in the center that works great for holding a phone or tablet while it charges. I often times find my self with a phone that is about to die or the need to plug my laptop in...

The Anker SoundCore Bluetooth speaker came in the usual Anker packaging which is simple yet premium at the same time.  Anker products have become some of my favorite to unbox.  Included with the SoundCore speaker is a short micro-USB charging cable and product documentation. The first thing I noticed about the SoundCore is how well built it is.  The entire speaker, other than the aluminum mesh grill on the front, is coated in a soft touch rubber which looks and feels great.  You can find the Anker branding embossed on the back of...

With USB-C quickly gaining popularity, there are more and more hubs popping up for sale.  USB-C not only provides convenience but the ability to connect multiple devices to a single port utilizing one of these hubs.  I have tried a few different USB-C hubs and they all have their pros and cons.  It doesn’t help that because the technology is so new, some of the drivers can be finicky. I had no problems getting the ORICO hub to work simply by plugging it into my Dell XPS 13 and letting Windows 10 handle the drivers.  The ORICO...

An alarm system is one of the more difficult tech items to review due to the complexity of them and the amount of pieces that work together to complete the system.  In this review I will do my best to describe the product and my experience using it.  I set this alarm up in a test scenario in one room of my house.  I did this not only to make it easier to test the system as a whole, but to prevent the system from interfering with my current alarm system that actually uses the same monitoring company, more on that later. The LivSecure...

The LucidBRAKE Supreme is one of many available bicycle lights on the market.  What makes it different from the rest is its ability to not only act as a light, but a brake light as well.  With an awesome build quality and simple design, LucidBRAKE has been able to create a bicycle light that is way ahead of the game compared to the other available lights. The light came well packed in a colorful, clear plastic package.  The light itself is roughly a three inch octagon made entirely of plastic, short of the electronics.  With two AAA...

The iClever BoostCube charger came packaged extremely well in a minimilistically designed box.  The only thing included with the charger is some product documentation. The BoostCube is constructed of plastic and measures roughly 2.5in by 2.5in by 1in.  It features a flip out power plug, a QC 3.0 USB Type-A port that is backwards compatible, and a Smart ID Type-A port.  The charger is capable of producing a total of 36W of power which means it is capable of charging a QC 3.0 device as well as a device at 2.4A at the same time.  In other...
