As a frequent traveler, I’m always looking for ways to optimize what I have to bring with me. Whether it’s packing only exactly what I need for an overnight business trip, or bringing only what I can carry in my pockets when going downtown. There seems to be a couple of strategies around this: you can either carry less stuff or bring things that carry more. The catch case for the Apple iPhone 5/5s is a clever way to do both. We got a chance to take a look at this case by STM and here’s what we thought.Read More

While at CES, Pelican announced a new line of protective cases for a bunch of devices, in that group was the Pelican Vault case for the iPad mini. The Vault line of cases seeks to maintain Pelicans reputation of tough, rugged cases for your equipment, touting MIL-STD 810G shock protection (from 4 ft. drops), as well as water and dust resistance to IP54 standards (for those of you unsure what IP54 is: “Water projected by a nozzle (6.3 mm) against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects… at 10 liters/min at a pressure of 80-100 kN/m2 for 5 min.”). How does this ruggedized case hold up? Read on to find out.Read More
I have a confession: I am mildly addicted to bags. Now, I’m not saying I run out and buy any cool bag that I see, but I do have a closet filled with various backpacks and messenger bags, and I spend an inordinate amount of time lusting after various new bags. For the last few weeks I have had the privilege of testing out one of STM Bags most popular products, the Velo 2 Shoulder Bag. How’d I like it? Read on to find out.
The iPort Charge Case and stand is a curious product. Not once have I thought to myself “man, it would be great to easily dock my iPad at various angles while simultaneously charging the device.” I am not really sure why that hasn’t crossed my mind, as I have become accustomed to that exact process, thanks solely to the iPort Charge Case and Stand. Read on to find out more about this device.
In the inaugural SupplyDrop quick review, I have the Autograph Leather skin from Truffol. As the name suggests, the Autograph is a leather skin that you apply to the back of your iPhone 5/5s (the autograph is also available for the Galaxy S4). The skin is a mere 0.6mm thick, which means you get an incredibly thin backing, but unfortunately none of the suppleness of the leather. The resulting texture is closer to a textured plastic rather than leather.
We get quite a lot of mobile accessories to check out here at SupplyDrop, but one thing we don’t see a lot of innovation in is charging cables. Nomad is looking to change that with the ChargeKey. For those of you unfamiliar with NOMAD, they are a company built around a successful Kickstarter campaign. Their first product was the ChargeCard, a simple and lightweight charging cable built into the shape of a credit card. Their follow-up product is the ChargeKey, a simple and tiny lightning cable (it also comes in MicroUSB) built into a key-sized package. How is the ChargeKey? Read on to find out.
At CES Razer announced the Nabu smartband and its corresponding developer kit. The Nabu is a dual-screened smartband that looks pretty similar to a Nike+ Fuelband SE. Although the looks may be similar, the functions can be very different. Razer seeks to take control of the smartband world with a device that may end up being the best smart wearable device out there.
Today at CES we got our first look at FLIRs awesome new thermal imaging iPhone case called the FLIR ONE. FLIR markets the ONE as the world’s first thermal imaging iPhone case, and we were hard-pressed to find an alternative. The ONE is quite an awesome piece of equipment, in the brief hands on time we got today we really saw it shine.
Today at CES we got a look at Incipio’s lineup of new cases. Our tour started off with the new battery cases in the OFFGrid series. The OFFGrid series of cases comes in 3 different capacities: 2000mAh, 2600mAh, and 4000mAh in the OFFGrid Pro. What’s nice about the OFFGrid Pro is the fact that its batteries are user replaceable/hot-swappable. The case is merely a shell for a 2000mAh battery pack (of which you receive two). This helps keep your case slim, but provides a readily available charge.
