World’s smallest 12W charger – Scosche superCUBE

superCUBE

While some people like to carry around extra batteries or the factory chargers that came with their devices, others just want something small, compact and universal. And Scosche has just the gadget for that. No, in fact, they have two – the superCUBE and superCUBE flip – and they’re 40% smaller than others out there.

Scosche superCUBE is a 12-watt wall adapter for USB powered devices that the company claims is the smallest in its class. It features a single standard USB port, which has a 5V output at 2.4A. So not only will it fast charge most USB powered devices like the iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy and most cameras, it also has enough power to charge larger, more power-hungry tablets like the iPad Air.   Read more…AT CANOE TECH BLOG

Adapt-Wireless-Receiver-Orange-Front-180x180You’ve invested in a great pair of headphones, but that was eons ago, long before wireless and perhaps before in-line microphones. But you now have a dilemma. You’d like to take advantage of the latest wireless features but don’t want to let go of your tried and true speakers or have to payout big bucks for something else. With Outdoor Tech’s Adapt, you won’t necessarily have to.

In fact the Outdoor Tech Adapt is a Bluetooth headphone adapter that will make anything that has a 3.5mm audio jack wireless – whether it’s your favourite set of well-worn headphones or the earbuds from your iPod Touch. Adapt also ports a built-in sports clip so while you might think it’s designed to be clipped to your clothes or backpack, it isn’t limited to things you wear on your head. You can even connect it to the set of speakers you have on your desk right now. Even better, you can connect it to your car’s AUX-in to stream tunes from any Bluetooth enabled device through your car’s speakers.

Bottle opening timepiece focuses on Happy Hour

And so it should, that is, for the simple fact that when staring at it the entire face looks somewhat fuzzy, the hour and the minute hand appearing somewhat blotchy and none of the numbers visible with the exception of the “5″.

Now I know what you might be thinking – that I’ve already decided to partake in the human ritual known to many as Happy Hour which begins around 5 “ish” and that I’ve already had a few too many. Others might nod their heads in agreement, because after a long day, Happy Hour is the only time that matters. But truth be told, I haven’t had a sip – yet – and that’s the way the watch was designed – really!           Read full article At G4TV Canada
