Cameras and water don’t mix but a waterproof camera bag makes it possible to protect cameras on rivers, lakes, or the ocean. On a recent rafting trip of the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, I was thankful that I had the Lowepro BP 40L backpack to keep my camera equipment dry along the 90-plus miles of whitewater splashing into the boat on the 6-day ROW adventures expedition.
When it comes to wearable personal audio, I tend to prefer on- and over-ear headphones. Not so much earphones, even though I’ve experienced some really great products for sound and/or features. For me, in-ear devices are all about the comfort and how well they can hold up to my binge-listening on a daily basis. If more »
Is there ever going to be an end to external battery packs? Probably not for quite some time. So you might as well get in and get one now, right? While there are many, many to choose from, not all portable battery packs are equal. Curious as to how this one by Kensington holds up? more »
I brought my Limefuel L130X battery to a park (a park! for my kid) this one time, and it came back home looking quite roughed up. It had been knocked down off its perch a bunch of times – the kids thought it was a game after the first few drops. Sure it still works more »
Many of the headphones reviews on Technology-Tell are for audio enthusiasts and not much for the office environment. But since I like to review all sorts of products and mix it up once in awhile, I present to you one of the latest productivity-centric headsets from Plantronics.
Technology-Tell Review: Champ Bodyguard Battery, panic alarm
After having had a few metal-body external battery packs to test out, I’m really starting to dig them. Sure, there are some plastic batteries, be it hard or soft, that are quite fetching. But there’s just something about the look and feel of metal. Like the device is more expensive than it really is, especially when it’s smaller and cuter. Like the Nova Blox from Juno Power.
External battery packs are totally useful, that is, until you happen to forget the cable. There’s nothing worse than having a need unfulfilled because of just one missing element. Fortunately, some manufacturers, such as Innovative Technology, has taken this into consideration. You’re not going to lose a cable that’s built-into the battery itself! Design The more »
Bluetooth trackers are still kind of new, but definitely very neat. Especially if you happen to be a person who tends to leave things here or there. Most trackers let you find your smartphone with the tracker itself, or find where the tracker is (it’s usually attached to something of importance) with the accompanying app. more »
Technology-Tell Review: Neo Smartpen N2
Sometimes I think of an interesting or engaging intro for a product review. This is not one of those times, haha. But I will comment about how I liked the A-Audio booth at CES 2015. Compared to many of the garish-looking booths at the show, A-Audio’s sophisticated panache was quite refreshing and very fitting for more »
