It’s pronounced “no key” because, duh. This Bluetooth padlock replaces a key or combination with what else, your phone. It senses your signal & pops open when you get within 10-feet. When you walk away, it automatically re-locks. The iOS/Android app lets you give others permission to use it, too.

Because electronics are always essential in off-grid locations like mountaintops and backcountry campsites, Outdoor Tech’s new Kodiak Waterproof power supply is going to be a lifesaver.

It’s pretty dumb that most phone batteries last about 1 day. That’s definitely not the case with this new and decidedly old school Nokia. Its battery will maintain power for up to 36 days in standby mode.

Standard features like video and music playback are also included. Fans of lo-fi will surely hope to see this released in the U.S., but for now it will be made available in emerging markets.
