Renogy Phoenix Solar Powered Generator kit in a briefcase

PhoenixCase

For many people the briefcase is totally passé, as backpacks seem to be all the rage, but not this one. The Renogy Phoenix is not your typical business accessory but rather an all-in-one solar powered generator briefcase. It really gives you, pardon the pun, a whole new meaning to mobile energy.

Officially called the Phoenix Generator 20W All-in-one Solar Kit, it features an LCD display comes complete with a handle. It comes in a small compact and portable form factor measuring only 16.24″ x 11.95″ x 3.94″ and weighing 12.8 pounds.

It has two built-in efficient Renogy 10 Watt Monocrystalline Solar Panels that harness the power of the sun to charge its hefty built-in 16Ah lithium-ion phosphate battery (NMC). Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

Cygnett offers ultra-slim 10,000 mAh power bank

Having a spare power bank is always a good thing, but as logic dictates there’s always a trade-off between battery power and battery size; if you want more power you have to increase the size. So Australia-based Cygnett has created the ChargeUp Digital Portable Power Bank, a small slim-lined power bank rated at 10,000 mAh and has an LED digital power display to boot.

The ChargeUp case has a durable polymer shell, a very small footprint, not much bigger than a credit card. It measures 142 mm long x 71 mm wide; 14 mm thin and weighs only 250 g.

It looks pretty sleek, too

Inside the case is a super thin lithium-polymer battery the company claims offers enough power to charge five to six phones or two to three tablets before the unit needs to be recharged. Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

SLIP101RG_02

To help you get the perfect lighting when taking a Selfie with the latest iPhone 6 models, Pyle Audio has unveiled the Lite-Me Selfie Lighted Smart Case, a slim-fitting multi-function case fitted with a series of super-bright LEDs to give your self-portrait the lighting it needs.

You could of course opt to use Apple’s Retina Flash, which illuminates the phone’s display as a way of simulating the flash. However, it can only be set to on, off or auto and given an almost unlimited array or lighting conditions does not give you the flexibility you’ll likely need. Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.
