If you’re an eager beaver of traveling, The Goal Zero Switch 8 kit is a great charging solution. It’s an easy-to-carry pack with two panels and zipped mesh beg for battery packaging and USB converter sit. Why The Goal Zero Switch 8? Well, this thing is small, light and easy to use. Its folding design allows you to prop it up like a book, if you have nothing to hang it. The most important component of the system is the Switch 8 recharger, a cylindrical multifunction thing that stores enough power to charge an iPhone 5 to 90 percent. It’s made of lightweight aluminum.
GOAL ZERO has said that it’s planing to release two tips in the coming months, one being an LED flashlight, and another that cleans water using ultraviolet light. When those products releases, the Switch 8 will be more multifeature than most comparable products on the market. Its concept is really easy. Power is sent to a tiny converter, which have the size like DSLR battery and the double zippers allow you to charge even big devices. With USB port it’s possible to plug the battery pack in and loop the cable. Some blue LEDs will inform you about charging status and how much the battery remains. There’s also a key unsunned feature. The end caps allows you to add different modules.
GOAL ZERO did a great job developing such a compact unit but with maximum functionality!
For those who remember their first albums, which were recorded on cassettes and are ready to greet these things in a new variation, then this news will cheer you. You can help it live on with this cool cassette case for iPhone 5 from Rocket Cases. Priced at just $14.99. This accessory will delight all fans of the original items, and especially music lovers.
Made from a sturdy TPU plastic the cover in the form of audio cassettes ideally adapts to the body of the iPhone 5, and protects it from micro scratches and drops. It also provides your device with all-over protection from the ingress of dust and dirt on the back of the unit, and a slightly protruding silicone edging prevents the screen from scratches on it.
Due to the unique design and dense, but at the same time light and flexible material, the case has the same shape and curves of the iPhone 5 and practically does not increase its volume and weight. Thus, the control buttons, connectors, earpiece, and other communications are available. The cable you get with your iPhone fits just fine, but if you use a micro USB to Lightning adapter, you’ll need to pull the cassette case off at the bottom. Its shiny finish also makes it easy to pull out of your pocket when taking a call.
The biggest downside to the cassette case, however, is that Rocket Cases isn’t the only company that sells them. The cassette case may feel cheap, but it is built to last. This case could be great for your clumsy kids who need protection for their iPhone 5.
Today, let me introduce a new speaker: the venerable Jawbone Jambox-the JBL Charge with a much bigger sound and a larger size than the Jambox. It’s a colorful pill of a speaker that looks almost like, as an accessory, it leaped out of a new iPod touch commercial. The JBL Charge has a fun and fantastic design, that will attract much attention of visitors of your room filled with design.
The sound is absolutely phenomenal. The JBL Charge has the louder, richer sound of the Big Jambox, although it’s slightly larger than the original Jambox. It has the bass richer and better, unlike most Bluetooth speakers. The JBL Charge at the maximum volume is loud enough to comfortably hear across the apartment, with clear and crisp sound.
The JBL Charge is equipped with the 6,000mAh battery inside, which can not only be used to power the speaker or up to 12 hours, or you can plug a cable into the Charge’s USB port and drain electricity into your smartphone. Such a feature makes the Bluetooth speaker more useful, especially for those who travel a lot. The JBL Charge costs $149, which isn’t too much for the thing that sounds so good. Unfortunately, there is no aptX support, which makes music streamed over Bluetooth sound better.
Generally, there are a lot of Bluetooth speakers out there, but the JBL Charge is like getting the best of these with its playful and colorful design and an external battery.

Anyway, many come to the conclusion that they can not do without covers.
DRACOcase is a Korean company manufacturing cases. I can’t but note that each case has its own unique DRACOcase serial number on the hologram label, which links to the official website where you can always check the authenticity of the purchased accessory. DRACO offers some series of bumpers (Standart, Elegance and Limited)
Standart one is made of aluminum, so the weight of the iPhone with the bumper DRACO Standart is only 20 grams! Of course, the case has all the holes and provides with access to all buttons. The bumper is attached to the iPhone with two screws.
As a previous model, the bumper Limited affects its weight – only 20 grams. Limited offers only two colors – silver and gold.
The manufacturer uses electrostatic powder paint that provides reliable coverage of the metal.
Elegance with its lines remind me racing cars Ferrari. Their design is different from the series Standart. The bumper is made of two parts and use four screws to mount.
If the protection afforded by the bumpers is not enough, DRACO offers a very attractive range of cover plates for the back of your iPhone, made of Italian leather.

Additionally, the case has USB and micro-USB port to charge your peripherals using the DOCKr’s battery. It’s also Bluetooth-enabled — though what this might be used for isn’t quite clear.
Though the DOCKr hasn’t even been introduced yet, it will cost $50. The release date is set for April 2, at which point more details will emerge and the device’s Kickstarter page will go live.
CubeSensors-sensitive little cubes that measure practically everything and report to your idevice about it. The cubes are internet-connected, so you can get their information anywhere, any time.
The CubeSensors can detect temperature, humidity, noise, light, air quality and barometric pressure – that is, they can tell you everything about a room except for how it smells and tastes.
As for the companion app , it can give notifications triggered by any of the above conditions, or you can just check in to keep an eye on the ambience of a room over time.
Two cubes will cost you $250 (four cubes will be $350), which is pricy for the home expert, but nothing compared to fitting the place out with environmental sensors.
You can pre-order the cubes now with a mere $10 deposit.
Breathometer, Inc. today kicked off the crowdfunding campaign for the Breathometer, an accessory that plugs into Apple’s iPhone and lets users know if they or someone else has had one too many to drink.
The Breathometer, which is the size of a typical car key, plugs into the headphone jack of a smartphone and, in combination with a mobile app, measures a user’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) when they breath into it. The device fits into a user’s pocket or attaches to a keychain, making it easily portable for regular use.
The Breathometer app will also allow users to track their activity in order to ensure their BAC is going down. Also, it will track past results in order to allow for the proper amount of time before getting behind the wheel. The Breathometer will get additional features as time goes on, including the option to call a cab by pushing a button.
“Breathometer wasn’t created just to address the risks associated with drinking and driving, but to help people, their friends and family, all to make smart and safer choices when consuming alcohol,” said Charles Michael Yim, Breathometer’s founder and CEO. “Real time BAC measurement is the first step.”
In addition to an iPhone application available on Apple’s App Store, Breathometer will also be compatible with Android devices via corresponding Google Play software. The accessory is expected by the company to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and it is patent pending.
Breathometer, Inc., has launched an Indiegogo campaign for the device, with 32 days left in its funding. Supporters donating $20 or above will get a Breathometer unit at the latest by January 2014, with delivery time improving as the donation scales up. The device is scheduled to begin shipping in the summer of 2013.
