It will measure wind speeds up to 25 meters/second (the Vaavud is Danish, hence the metric measurements and strange name), can share recorded data with the world through its free app—and it’s been tested for accuracy in a wind tunnel.

This is The Most Powerful Battery Case for The Samsung Galaxy S3 (There’s an iPhone Version Too)

One doesn’t see too many battery cases for the Galaxy S3.

But that didn’t stop iWalk from coming out with the Chameleon Easy, an impossibly sleek monster of a battery case with 2800 mAh on tap — which iWalk says is the highest capacity of any S3 battery to date.
