  • If there's one thing that I hate about almost every battery pack out there, it's the fact that I need to lug around extra cables and chargers. This simple fact makes even the most compact power banks become a pain in the butt for travel That's why I was so excited to check out the latest from myCharge, one of our favorite manufacturers of innovative power banks when they offered to send me their new Hub Turbo.

  • I have a LOT of headphones, earbuds, and other listening devices that various brands have sent me over the years but I'm still searching for the perfect pair for traveling. While my preferred form factor is a full closed back over the ear style... they are big and bulky to carry. At the other end of the spectrum though are the relatively new earbud form factor popularized by Apple. Now, thanks to AuSounds I've had a chance to check this out with their new AU-Stream ANC True Wireless Earphone. It sounds great, compact, easy to charge, and the active noise cancelation (ANC) is surprisingly good for such a small product.

  • Spoiling a loved one with an exquisite piece of jewelry can be pricey but priceless. Picking the right kind of jewelry gift for a special person can be a bit of headscratcher. Especially if you’re looking for something unique and personal. The best way of going about choosing that perfect piece of jewelry is to consult someone who knows what they’re talking about.

  • I've been privileged to test and review a lot of headsets that are sent our way and frankly, most are simply utilitarian or designed to just look great. There are a lot of options out there that sound good and look great but this is the first time I'm actually having fun with a pair of headphones. Beyond being a talented artist, successful promoter, and entrepreneur - Snoop is about having fun and celebrating the great stuff in life. That spirit carries through to this limited-edition LS50X Snoop Dog headset as well.

  • A few months ago the folks at Autonomous sent me one of their Standing Desks and a great new office chair too. It was an interesting challenge trying this out since initially, it seemed to be more of a gimmick but then quickly proved to be something valuable that frankly should be the standard, instead of being perceived as an expensive luxury.

  • One of the easiest upgrades you can do to get your PC moving faster is to swap out your old hard drive for a high quality Solid State Drive or SSD. These drives last longer, operate faster, and thankfully have come down in price to the point where there's no reason not to get one. SK hynix sent us their latest product, the Gold S31 to test out and we dig it!

  • I’ve been a Jeep Wrangler owner for years, and I wouldn’t trade the vehicle for anything; It’s just too much fun. My love affair with Jeep began with the growth of my family. I wanted something fun to drive like a convertible, but I also found myself with the need to be able to transport three kids and a wife. Enter the Jeep Wrangler. It ticked all of the boxes and more. It was a convertible that could go anywhere and fit the family. Perfect….Sorta.

  • One of the things for many people that travel internationally is that for the most part, US wireless carriers don't include free international roaming. When they do, it's often costly and complex to setup. The alternative is to buy a sim when you get there, but Keepgo is another option. They offered me a choice of a 4G LTE data sim or 4G LTE mobile WIFI hotspot that works in more than 120 countries. We tested it out on our trip to Loreto, Mexico and frankly the results were mixed.

  • Summer is over and that probably means you haven't spent much time inside. Don't worry though, fall is here and winter is just around the corner. That means it's time to head back inside and retreat to your man cave and all the fun stuff found within. Games, comfy chairs, maybe even a beer fridge and memorabilia. Here's some tips to get your man cave up and ready for the winter holidays and ultimately - prepared to be the destination where all your buddies want to hang out for March Madness!

  • Urban mobility is a trend that is only going to increase and while you can rent a scooter on the corner of pretty much any major city in the United States, why not just buy your own? An electric scooter is the perfect gift for your favorite college student to get them between classes quickly and without breaking a sweat the way you did on your bike. Scooter technology has gotten to the point now where it's light, quick, and long-lasting while also being affordable like the Jetson Quest electric scooter from Best Buy starting at about $500.

  • Despite my phone's 128 gig of space, I have a problem. Photos and video that I shoot eats up tons of space and simply uploading all the files to the cloud just isn't an option while traveling. In the past, I've used an external SD card reader and SD card to back stuff up and offload it from my phone but the process was awkward and on more than one occasion I actually lost my SD card because it fell out the reader while sitting in the airplane seat pocket. With Samsung's new T5 Portable SSD though I can have up to 2TB of space to backup my files... as well as carry other files with me to share such as movies, audio files, etc.

  • Bill here with ManTripping, I am just an average joe with an amazing new vertical smoker that has changed my BBQing for good not evil!  Prior to receiving the Pit Boss Copperhead 5 Vertical Pellet Smoker I used your standard propane 6 burner grill that had been fine for years.  It cooked well, allowed me to spend hours outdoors trying to find ways to find the taste of the local BBQ joints that smoke their meats.  Hours were spent using various techniques that just didn’t meet my needs.

  • I'm thankful to live in San Diego where for 90% of the year I can leave my windows wide open and get fresh air. It quite literally never rains here and the temperature is almost always 70 degree. However, there are those few weeks per year when it gets hot. Compared to those of you back easy suffering from 100+ degree days right now our 90's might seem nice. Unfortunately, when the temperature inside your loft is more than 80 degrees, things like taking a conference call or being able to concentrate while writing posts like this are near impossible. Without the ability to install a window box air conditioner, I've had to rely on portable units instead. Compared to those other ones, I'm in love with this new unit from Midea. Not only does it have all the standard features but it also can connect to Google Assistant or Alexa so I can set schedules and turn it on or off remotely just by telling it to.

  • Not all earphones have to be fancy or expensive and so it's nice to be able to play with a pair of earbuds that are just plain good. There's literally nothing fancy or extraordinary about these other than the fact that they sit comfortably in my ear and transmit good quality sound from my phone to my ears. Soul Byrd is essentially my new go-to backup ear buds for traveling when my more fancy and expensive pairs run out of juice on a long plane flight.

  • The smart phone market has pretty much reached maturity. Simply put they are "fast enough" and most people don't need an upgrade. However, that leaves a saturated market forcing phone makers to innovate or die. That, combined with the roll-out of 5G in the United States and around the world, we may be ready to enter a new era of smart phone innovation. Here's some phones we're excited about in 2019!

  • The simple keyboard is something that most people don't think much about until it gets worn out. For gamers looking for an extra edge though, a good gaming keyboard is as important as your mouse for getting frags faster. Along with simply being more responsive though, a good gaming keyboard needs to have flair and look cool to match the amped up style and attitude of the gamer himself. After spending a few hours "testing" this keyboard with Fortnight and some other games, I'm happy to say that it lives up to it's potential.

  • Your iPad is either a valuable business tool, a recreational device that you could not be without or both. It's a sleek elegant device offering both form and function that is matched by its toughness. That said it is important that you protect this device using a good sleeve.

  • Embarking on an adventure is one of the most exciting feelings ever. You might be thinking of the way to capture your trip, as you’re planning it. There are so many boring travel photos wrapped all over your Instagram homepage, but you want to make a travel video that can truly capture your memories.

  • Typically when I travel, I have a carry-on bag and backpack. Sometimes though, for quick overnight trips I honestly don't need that much space and it would be nice to travel with just a single bag. Unfortunately my backpack wasn't designed for clothes and my carry-on bag certainly wasn't designed for carrying my laptop and paperwork. 

  • I take a lot of photos and while it's great to see them on the computer or my phone and share them on Facebook... there's nothing that can compare to printing them out. I've been a fan of the prints on canvas format for a few years now and honestly I typically bounce around from one vendor to the next depending on the deals offered online. CanvasPop offered to let me try their service though and I'm impressed. Not only were the images color accurate and printed flawlessly, but the canvas and frames were far superior to other services out there.
