Anker is responsible for some of our favorite smartphone accessories on the market today. And while you may think of its portable batteries or Lightning cables first, it also has a massive backup power supply in tow as well. The Anker PowerHouse delivers 120,000mAh of juice in a portable design that weighs less than ten-pounds.

In day-to-day use, you likely won’t find yourself reaching for the PowerHouse to charge your iPhone or iPad. But as a backup generator or energy source while camping, it brings more than enough power to survive a weekend away. I’ve been tinkering with the PowerHouse over the last month, taking it on trips and using it outside and around my house. At $499, it’s a hefty investment but the peace of mind return is well worth the upfront cost.

Pad & Quill’s hand-made Apple device accessories are easily among the best in the category. The small company takes great pride in the materials and craftsmanship that goes into everything it makes from wooden iPhone 7 cases, to gorgeous leather MacBook sleeves and more. There is even an interesting full-grain leather Apple Pencil Grip, but the company’s dedication to organic and well-made products extends well beyond items specifically made for Apple gear. We recently detailed the new Pad & Quill men’s leather wallets, but it is the company’s Roll Top Backpack that caught my eye.

After sharing some minor details way back at CES 2016, GoPro is finally offering a clearer picture of its latest device called the Fusion. It is capable of capturing an impressive 5.2K resolution at 30 frames per second. For comparison, that squeezes past the new Samsung Gear 360, which tops out at 4K and 24fps. GoPro Fusion offers yet another product category for the action adventure brand to dive head first into. The question is, will it help GoPro rebound from a difficult first half of 2017?

I’ve had the privilege of going hands-on with the new 14-inch LG Gram over the last month, and wanted to share my impressions. The Gram is a very lightweight traditional-style Windows laptop with a touch screen. It doesn’t do any of the fancy 2-in-one stuff that a lot of Windows machines do these days, but for those of you who don’t necessarily want or need such things, it’s a solid laptop.

The Gram’s headlining feature is its weight, or lack thereof. LG says that the 14-inch Gram weighs in at just over two pounds, which is just under 1 kilogram. Dubbed as an ultra-lightweight machine, I can vouch for the fact that this laptop is ridiculously light in the hand. If you’re used to carrying around a 15-inch or even a 13-inch MacBook Pro, you might be taken aback by the feather-like characteristic of the Gram.

But is being lightweight enough to warrant consideration? Have a look at our hands-on video walkthrough as we briefly explore what this machine has to offer. expand full story

It’s been impossible to ignore the success of the Nintendo Switch and NES Classic over the past few months. Unfortunately, the chances of adding either device to your collection are slim to none. While the Switch is facing unprecedented demand, Nintendo announced on Friday that it would be discontinuing the beloved NES Classic. If you’re aching to relive your childhood and play some retro games, but don’t want to shell out two or tree times the price to pick one of the consoles up, a Raspberry Pi might be exactly what you’re looking for.
