Quick Review: TYLT VU Wireless Charger

TYLT-VU-2

Wireless charging has come a long way over the past year. Phones like the Nexus 5 have improved their efficiency at wireless charging and third party charging solutions are vastly better. One such charging solution is the TYLT VU Wireless charging stand. TYLT makes some excellent products all around, we have reviewed several of them here on Techaeris.

Quick Review: Draco Ducati 5000mAh Powerbank

Draco-1-Powerbank

Draco Designs makes some of the most beautiful aluminum bumpers on the market and after a few bumper reviews they sent along their 5000mAh Ducati Powerbank. First off this powerbank is beautifully designed. Just like their great bumpers, the Ducati Powerbank is made of A6061 aircraft grade aluminum. Inspired by Ducati’s 1199 Panigale superbike, the Powerbank is designed with a stylish aluminum case that incorporates core racing elements from Ducati.

Review: Supernova S5 Aluminum Bumper For Galaxy S5

Draco-Supernova-9

Draco Designs is no stranger to Techaeris or, for that matter, to my hands. I’ve reviewed their awesome products before, and when they sent me their Supernova S5 for the Samsung GS5 I knew I was getting something special. Before we get too deep into the review I will say this, as I always say before reviewing something of this caliber…this bumper is high quality, and it comes with a higher cost than other bumpers.  If you’re not prepared to spend a little money, then this is probably not the bumper for you. Now on with the show.

My View On The Dot View: HTC’s Case For The One M8

HTC Dot View Case Front Off

I’ll  be honest. I am not a huge fan of cases. When I buy a phone I don’t want anything to add to the bulk of that phone. Every now and then I will flirt with cases. I will buy them, use them, stop using them, etc. For the most part I just end up not using them. Sometimes my feelings on a case depend on the case and the device. Some devices are so ugly that they demand a case (I’m looking at you G2.) Some devices are so pedestrian that cases add excitement but I still fall back into that hatred of extra bulk. Then there are devices that are so beautiful that it almost seems criminal to put a case on them. Last year’s HTC One fell into that last camp and this year’s HTC One (M8) falls into that camp even more.

All New HTC One (M8) Reviewed

HTC-One-M8

In 2013, HTC was coming off of a rough year. They had gone a year with the One X as their flagship device, and though reviews placed the device on equal footing with the Samsung Galaxy S III, sales were faltering. At that time HTC was using a similar camera to the S III and was also using a polycarbonate shell.

Review: UNU Aero Wireless Charging Case iPhone 5/5s

UNU-Aero

The competition in the iPhone battery case arena is so hot I’m finding it hard to say anything really new about them. I’ve reviewed several battery cases for the iPhone 5/5s in just a few short months. Each one did what it was supposed to do and each one had their share of quirks and really nice features. So, what could a company possibly do to stand out from all the other battery cases? Go wireless.

Review: Limefuel L28N5 Nexus 5 Battery Case

Limefuel-Battery-Case-N5

There is no shortage of battery cases for the iPhone, and there are a decent amount for the Samsung Galaxy S4. They’re all over the place on Amazon and various other online retailers. But it is a rare thing indeed to ever find such a thing for Google’s flagship Nexus phone, the Nexus 5. However, we ran across a crazy awesome company called Limefuel and they’ve taken it upon themselves to create one just for you and me…the Limefuel L28N5, a 2860mAh battery case for your Nexus 5.

Review: iRigHD And AmpliTube For iPad

iRigHD1

One of my passions in life has always been music. I grew up around a family of musicians…uncles, aunts, cousins, dad, and my brothers were all musicians. So, naturally, I followed that path. I started playing drums when I was seven years old and graduated when I was 11 to the king-of-the-hill (in my eyes), the guitar. If you would have told me twenty-eight years ago that I would be playing my guitar through a small TV-like device that emulated the sounds of  The Eagles, Pink Floyd, and Aerosmith, I would have called you insane.

Review: iBattz Battstation Tough Dual Pro 12000 mAh

BattStation 12000_1hr

I think that we can all agree that an external battery pack is really expected to do one thing – charge stuff.  I can say with the utmost certainty that the  iBattz Battstation Tough Dual Pro 12000 mAh does that with aplomb.  With 12,000 mAh of portable power, this spare will charge your devices far longer than many other portable batteries on the market.  With that out of the way, I feel that it’s probably more beneficial to discuss some of the things that set the iBattz apart from it’s competitors.
