You might not believe this but we found a battery charger/power supply for your phone, computer, & electronics that runs on water. Yup. It’s a hydrogen fuel cell that converts water into electricity. Don’t expect us to explain this weird science but we can tell you this: the futuristic little PowerTrekk unit is eco-friendly and provides power totally off the grid. Available May 2012.
Conduct a quick survey of your friends and you’ll be surprised how many of us have dropped our phones in the toilet. As they say, shit happens. Liquipel’s unique process for waterproofing your electronics can protect your phone, tablet or other handheld device from the damaging effects of liquid. Maybe not the full-immersion flip into the porcelain pool, but pretty much everything else.
If you tote around any type of USB-powered device you’d be nuts not to buy this PocketCell rechargeable battery bank from Innergie. It’ll be your lifeline for dying phones, tablets, and everything else powered requiring juice via USB. It is small, totally portable and compatible with over 10,000 devices.
This emergency dual-band GSM cell phone has something that until now you & your current phone could only dream of: A 15-year battery life. It is made for emergencies and automatically transmits its location. At $50 this is a small pricetag for some serious piece of mind. Throw one in the glove box and when you’re stranded on the side of the road with a dead car and dead iPhone, you’ll be glad you did.
GreenZero Chargers for your mobile device are more than just a cool looking charger. Its unique design turns off as soon as your device is fully charged which eliminates stand-by energy consumption. To turn it back on just give the big green button a kick. Did you even know about stand-by energy consumption? Now you do, so save yourself. Also available in a travel size shown above in black.
Your iPhone is, in fact, like a miniature iPad so why not treat it as such? The TidyTilt contraption tames and stores your headphone cable plus the screen protector doubles as a stand for tabletop scrolling. Very tidy, yes.
If you have the iPhone 4 you already know that the battery life sucks. This new backup battery/protective case gives you the freedom to spend twice as long away from an AC power source. And while you’re roughing it out there off-the-grid, you can use Mophie’s GPS-enabling app to keep you on course while you hunt for that next outlet.
If you know the Moog, you love it. The classic, spaced-out synthesizer sound has been backing dance tracks, movie sound effects and hip-hop beats for decades. Now you can turn your iPad into a Moog with their new app, and this isn’t some noisy knockoff, the app came straight from Moog’s Intergalactic headquarters.
Sure, some may be disappointed that Apple’s latest iPhone wasn’t completely revamped, but it would be a mistake to call it a “minor” refresh. A greatly enhanced 8 megapixel camera with all-new optics, beefy A5 dual-core processor and smartly designed inbuilt voice command should provide plenty of reason for the masses to upgrade. Pre-order begins October 7 and release is set for October 14.
This is a legitimate iPad competitor. It’s a content thing. Amazon has access to content – lots of it. By pricing its new Kindle Fire tablet at less than half the cost of an Apple iPad, Amazon is opening up the flood-gates to more mainstream tablet media consumption. And this piece of tech kit doesn’t skimp on the gadgetry. The seven-inch tablet runs a custom version of Android and is equipped with WiFi connectivity, a Dual-core processor and free Amazon Cloud storage. Available November 15, 2011.
