Do you have lots of phones, tablets, and other rechargeable gadgets in the house or at the office? Here’s the solution to all of your charging problems.
Unitek’s 10-port charging station can juice up two handfuls of USB-powered devices at once – even tablets and larger smartphones. Its 10 ports can provide 5 volts at up to 2.4-amps each. To accommodate all of your devices and keep them neatly organized, it comes with dividers, which can be adjusted based on the size and number of gadgets you have.
It’s currently on sale for just $39.99(USD) over at Amazon, and if you want to keep things super tidy, you’ll want to add on some short cables, since those aren’t included. You can find a 5-pack of stubby MicroUSB cords for $7.99, and a 6-pack of short Lightning cables for $12.99.
If you like to be outdoors, be it spending lazy days on the lake, at the beach, or camping with family and friends, we all need a way to keep our gadgets charged up and working. MyCharge has a slick new charger that is extremely portable yet packs in a large 13400 mAh battery called the AdventureUltra. It’s sized to take with you and can power all manner of devices. In fact, it can charge multiple devices at one time.
The AdventureUltra is small enough that you can drop it in a backpack for camping or a beach bag for topping off your gadgets and hardly know it’s in there. The caveat is for backpackers who count every ounce, it may seem heavy at 1.05 pounds.
There is plenty of connectivity for your devices with a 3.0A USB-C port, and dual USB-A ports with 2.4A each. That means you could juice up three gadgets at the same time. Then you have a 110V AC port with 45W of power. This means you can run all sorts of devices like a small TV, or more likely use it to charge your laptop if it’s not a big power glutton. My laptop slurps more than 45W of power, so I didn’t get to try that.
What I did do was charge this thing up and take it with me on a trip to Florida during the summer. This was the perfect device for keeping everyone’s smartphone charged up while on the road no matter how much we used them. Our data plan ran dry before the AdventureUltra battery did. Once at the beach, I carried the AdventureUltra directly onto the sand and used it to keep smartphones topped off while we listened to music.
To charge the internal battery I plugged it in at night and left it charging overnight, it was ready to roll again each morning. It has a small LCD screen that shows you how much power is left in the big battery. The USB ports on the device also have a pass-through so you can charge your gadgets as you charge the battery. That means at night all you need is your smartphone USB cable, no need to carry multiple USB wall adapters. The AdventureUltra comes with the charger for its internal battery and a recharge adapter. It sells for $129.99(USD), and is one of the handiest things you can possibly take on road trips or camping.
Winter might just be a couple of months away, but the forecast here for tomorrow is 87 degrees and a gazillion percent humidity. With conditions like that, you need to keep cool. Sure, your office or home probably has an air conditioner, but sometimes a direct breeze is what you really need, especially on humid days. This little desk accessory is just what the doctor ordered.
Measuring in at just 5″ square, the Little Big Fan plugs into your computer’s USB port or a USB charger, and pushes out a surprisingly good amount of air for its size. On really hot days, you could even try blowing it over a dampened brick to make your own impromptu desktop air conditioner. It’s available in white, aqua or millennial pink, though I’m pretty sure you don’t have to have been born between 1982 and 2004 to enjoy that color – you just need to be girly.
You can chill out with the Little Big Fan over at Perpetual Kid for just $19.99(USD).
Car chargers and car air purifiers are pretty common car accessories. But instead of having to get both, why not get one that serves both purposes? This 2 USB Port Car Chargers with Air Purifier can juice up your gadgets, and keep your car smelling better.
This ionic air purifier plugs into your car outlet, removing pollutants from the air in your vehicle. And it serves double duty by also providing two USB outlets (3.1 amp total output) with which you can charge your devices. Make your car smell nice while also giving your phone a charge.
Grab one for your car for just $12.99(USD) in the Technabob Shop – a savings of 67% off the MSRP.
Flash drives used to have some value, but these days, I’ve got boxes full of them – mostly handed to me by vendors presenting their products. To garner attention, companies have handed me USB drives that look like everything from a metal horse, to a twig, to a key fob from a $100,000 car. But all of those designs pale in comparison to these beautiful handcrafted flash drives from artist Magen Kening.
These one-of-a-kind steampunk flash drives are crafted from materials like copper, brass, and glass. They look kind of what Doctor Who’s Sonic Screwdriver would look like if he lived in Victorian times.
Most of the drives have LED lighting built in, but the coolest one has to be the one with the spinning DNA double helix inside.
You can see the spinning helix in action in the video below…
Is that not the coolest flash drive you’ve ever seen? Incredible work, Magen. And check out this motorized gatling gun flash drive:
Amazing! They’ve also got one with a nixie tube that lights up:
