If ever there were a creative company with lots of fun and useful digital toys and accessories it would Kinivo. Today we’re going to review the new BTM440 Bluetooth headset.
This mono headset uses a micro USB connector for charging and comes with the appropriate cable. Charging time is 2-3 hours for a full charge. Talk time can be up to 5 hours so that’s pretty good return on the investment.
Nude Audio offers a new line of portable Bluetooth speakers called Move with three size variations, S,M,L, which stands for small, medium, and large. I received the M model to review. It is about 3 ¾ inches square.
This portable speaker delivers a crisp sound so much better than a tinny phone speaker that it is a nice asset to have in your home, garden, at a barbecue or on a boat.
One of the problems with IOS devices is that they do not have replaceable batteries so you can’t slip in a spare when you run out of hunk. There is an easy solution, however, when you don’t have a handy wall plug. Enter the new Anker Astro2. It is a powerful external battery, and it will solve your power problem.
The Anker unit is sleek and slim. It measures 4 1/8 x 2 ½ x 5/8 inches and weighs 7 ½ ounces.
Running out of hunk on your phone or tablet is about as stupid and frustrating and running out of gas in your car. Few of us carry a spare gas can in our car but you can easily carry the new 2800 mAh MagicStick by Powerocks.
The MagicStick is a brush aluminum cylinder that measures 21.7 mm in diameter and 86 mm long. It weighs only 80g so it will fit nicely in your pocket or bag or purse.
To charge the unit fully takes about five hours.
I get such a kick out of flying remote control helicopters I’ve been thinking that when I grow up I might join the Air force and become a drone helicopter pilot. But I don’t really want a real job, and Swann has come to the rescue with some really great new helicopters.
The Black Swann will record flights with video and still photos. Just add a Micro SD card to record the data and push a button. With this baby I can spy on my neighbors.
Griffin is a never ending flow of new cases. This time it’s for the Galaxy S4 with the Reveal Case, a rugged Survivor case, and Midtown Wallet. Well take a look at each one.
I don’t know about you, but I haven’t carried a wallet in many years. I found I had too much stuff I needed to carry around related to my digital enthusiasm, so I stuff it all in a bag and sling it over my shoulder. But maybe the Griffin Midtown Wallet will signal some kind of wallet resurgence.
When I received the package containing the headphones for review, I opened it, and it contained a can of beets. Huh? I didn’t order any beets. I don’t even really like them very much. I remember planting some in my garden one time and couldn’t get rid of them. They kept coming back year after year whether I wanted them or not.
I dug a little deeper in the package. Lo and behold there was a black circular case.
It doesn’t take long for new cases to arrive when a new phone appears on the market. X-Doria is a signature case maker par excellence with a new case in the circle for the S4.
The Dash series consists of three models, the Dash Pro, the Dash Icon, and the Engage Form VR. The one I received to review belongs to the Dash Icon line.
