Now Funding: Aipower Wearbuds

For me, wireless headphones, be they over-the-ear (like the Soundcore Q30) or earbuds (my current favorites are also from Soundcore, the Liberty Air 2 Pro ) have become a constant. Earbuds are great when going out for a jog, and the on-ear are perfect for WFH. I also like to have earbuds with me when I head out to handle an unexpected phone call. But what if you forget to grab your (admittedly small) case? That’s where the Aipower Wearbuds can help you out.

Introducing: mophie snap collection

For our phones, charging has become an area of some heated-up competition. First it was how many watts you could push down the cord to speed up charging, and then once the Qi wireless standard became, well, more standard, it was all manner of wireless charging (and how fast it charged). They’ve tended to be very Apple-focused, or generic (ie, everyone else), but the new mophie snap collection wants to correct that.

Ready for summer grilling and chilling – the BioLite FirePit Cooking Kit

We’ve written about BioLite and their FirePit a few times in the past, both in terms of reviewing the original version (you can see that here), as well as some of the improvements that they made earlier this year. Well, now we’re back into the swing of backyard grilling and campfires, so we thought we’d bring this back up, as we saw a small price drop on the BioLite FirePit Cooking Kit.

Introducing: NOCS Provisions Zoom Tube

When you’re heading outside, you might be thinking about grabbing a pair of binoculars to take with you to zoom in to see what’s up in the trees or off in the distance. If you want to cut some weight and bulk out, though, perhaps a monocular gets the job done. If so, then the recently-released NOCS Provisions Zoom Tube is something you’ll want to have a look at.

A big juice box for adventures – the Goal Zero Yeti 1000X

Yesterday, we told you about a portable wind turbine that can be used while you’re out camping, or even at home for emergencies. What if you want an even bigger battery, something to last you for a full week while out in the wilds, or even for an extended power outage? This is something I’ve been more interested in since our derecho event last summer, and the Goal Zero Yeti 1000X looks like it could cover a lot of bases.

Two new options from SteelSeries to up your game

Whatever the reason, SteelSeries has two recently-announced items that could help you (or your dad, as Father’s Day is coming up) get back in the game.

Introducing: the Glow Rhino Reactor

Over the past few years, a good pocket knife has become an essential part of what I have with me every day (aka Every Day Carry). Even since I’ve been working from home, I still have a knife handy, for opening packages and whatnot. When we go camping, I switch to one that I’ve got a tritium glow fob attached to, so I can easily find it. Well, the recently-released Glow Rhino Reactor ups that game, and does it in a sleek everyday package.

Introducing: Yaber Pro V7 Advanced Projector

While many have probably got their home theater setup settled over the last year when we all consumed a lot more entertainment, that may have been more in the form of a fixed display. What if you want to setup a bigger screen projector, or perhaps head out the backyard for a summer evening movie? That’s where the just-announced Yaber Pro V7 Advanced Projector can come in handy.

New packs from Gregory Packs help keep the stink at bay

When you’re going to be backpacking for an extended amount of time, odor is, well, something you need to deal with. If you’re in the backcountry, you don’t have shower access, so you may get a bit ripe between the exertion and the campfires. Of course, your pack – especially an internal frame one – hugs close to your body, and can get a bit unpleasant as well. At least, until Gregory Packs released the Katmai and Kalmia.

Introducing: Gear4 Orlando

We’ve talked about a number of different phone and tablet cases, which we feel offer a solid tradeoff between protection for your device and protecting its sleek lines. On the other hand, if you’re setting up a tablet for a child to use, you want to give that device as much protection as you can. The latest to come available is the Gear4 Orlando.
