On camping excursions, road trips or just long walks, it’s important not to lose use of your most important devices. Without a backup battery, that’s no guarantee, so why not get a battery that can revive up to three devices?
Best List: FuelBox, a home and mobile charging system
There’s a secret magician lurking in our household. We never see them, but they somehow manage to disappear all our charging cables. It drives me batty. The kids, of course, deny any knowledge of the situation. Yet somehow it’s impossible to keep cables around the house. They just keep disappearing.
That’s why I like the FuelBox PowerStation, a charging system that combines a docking station/charging brick with a mobile battery pack. Both the docking station and the battery pack have built-in charging cables — both Lightning and mini-USB. No matter what, the cables can’t disappear.
Your iPhone comes out of the box full of possibilities. But with the right accessory, you can vastly expand the powers of your phone. This bundle of upgrades will allow your iPhone to cling to walls, see into your house no matter where you are, throw its voice, and add up to 10 extra lifespans.
Considering how much we rely on and use various cables to connect and charge up our devices, it’s high time they learn to keep up. These three new, rugged and highly adaptable cables from Nomad represent a step in the right direction.
From a PVC-jacketed cable to a built-in battery and a universal interface for any connection type, these next-gen cables are well worth checking out.
While everyone’s freaking out about the state of the world, we here at the Cult of Mac Store are busy finding the best deals we can find. This week, we’ve got a single super-slim battery that can juice up anything from an iPhone to a MacBook, a full year of the uber-popular TextExpander app, a lifetime of powerful VPN protection, and a set of comprehensive courses in programming for iOS.
If you travel with any number of devices, you know that a backup battery can prevent being powerless at just the wrong time. But carrying a bunch of batteries doesn’t exactly make for traveling light. That’s why you should look into a single slim battery like ToughJuice from ZeroLemon. It can bring a charge to a number of devices, from iPhones to MacBooks. And right now, at less than half price, you can get a 30,000mAh ToughJuice for $59.99 at Cult of Mac Deals.
2017 is humming right along. OK, maybe more like crashing along. Nevertheless, we’re offering the best deals this side of the digital divide. This week, our top gear and gadgets include a 64GB thumb drive that doubles as a connector cable, a powerful app for unlocking PDFs, a portable battery pack that can charge almost any device, and a VPN subscription that’ll protect your online life.
When there’s no wall outlet within reach, we rely on portable batteries to get our devices through the day. Unfortunately, they’re not always the right tool for the job, since they’re specific to certain device types or connections. That’s what makes the Nifty C PowerPod so, well, nifty.
You’re not alone in your Pokémon Go habit. And let’s be honest, you’ve probably found yourself with a dead or dying battery on more than one occasion on a long-running hunt.
The PokeCharger is a portable 3,300mAh battery pack — styled like a Poké Ball — that can charge your phone back up at twice the speed of a wall charger. And right now you can get a PokeCharger for $39.99 at Cult of Mac Deals.
