Energizer XP18000 Universal Power Bank
We featured many power banks here at CoolPile.com, but, for some reason, we always focused on external batteries designed to charge small gadgets such as smartphones, digital cameras, tablets, basically everything powered and charged by USB cables! Check out some them here: the JunoJumpr, the PoweriSite, the PowerPak Ultra, the TsirTech smartphone wrist band charger, the PowerFlask and so on …

Now it’s time we get more serious into this power banks situation! A while back I was looking for an extended battery for my laptop and soon I realized that it makes no sense to put money into an battery which will serve only one gadget – my laptop. So I decided to go for an battery powerful enough to charge my laptop, versatile enough to allow multiple gadgets charging and lightweight enough to comfortably carry it in my daily backpack!

While I am still researching the subject and I did not settle for a model yet, the Energizer XP18000 seems to be a serious contender! The device is truly universal, can charge just about anything that gets power juice via USB and can add up to 5 hours of usage to a regular laptop or up to 8 hours of use to smaller netbooks.

The Energizer XP18000 can recharge up to 3 devices at the same time, comes with 3 power cables, 6 cell phone tips, 3 media tips, 9 laptop tips, an AC adapter and a carrying bag. The XP18000 is also part of the Free Tips For Life Energizer program which allows users to get 2 free charging tips every year, for the life time of their registered power bank! So no worry if you buy a new gadget!

Navdy  Or How To Safely Interact With Your Smartphone While Driving & Still Keeping Your Eyes On The Road
Smartphones and cars don’t really go hand in hand! There are too many temptations to take your eyes from the road and check your phone for incoming text massages, navigation directions, emails, social media notifications and messages, dial calls and so on … And taking your eyes from the road causes accidents!

Navdy is a nifty car gadget that promises to solve this issue and allow you to interact with your smartphone while keeping your eyes on the road. How do they do it? You simply put Navdy on your car’s dashboard, it connects via Bluetooth to your iPhone or Android smartphone and, via a HUD (heads-up display), it projects information from your phone and displays it … on the road in front of your vehicle! Well, it doesn’t really project the info on the road, but on the device’s 5.1in transparent screen, which makes it look like it’s projected on the road in front of you.

ALSO CHECK the Garmin Windshield HUD (Head-Up Display) and the Skully P1 HUD Motorcycle Helmet we wrote about earlier.

Other than displaying navigation directions, Navdy can be controlled via air-gestures and voice commands to allow you to send messages and emails, answer and dial calls, control music playback and, if connected to the car’s computer via the OBDII interface, can allow you to monitor car performance and diagnostics by displaying the info on its HUD.

Navdy is presently on a private crowdfunding campaign and you can pre-order one for $299. Delivery is scheduled for early 2015.

Looxcie LX2 Wearable Video Cam for iPhone and Android - In Action
Wearing an action camera is no longer a big deal … when doing sports? But did you try mounting your favorite GoPro while taking a walk in the park or going to work? Whatever your reasons might be to do so, it still looks weird! So, if you need to record footage of you’re doing and still have your hands free for other activities, the Looxcie LX2 wearable video camera has you covered! And all this without making you look weird or stupid!

The Looxcie LX2 is lightweight (less than 1oz – that’s less than 22 grams!) and can be worn just as a Bluetooth headphone piece, can be clipped to caps, bike helmets, mounted on car windshields or on a tripod. The camera allows up to 5 hours of video recording, allows instant clip creation and sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube or i-Cloud, is powered by rechargeable battery with a life time of up to 4 hours and is compatible with iPhone and Android devices.

Given the small format size of the Looxcie LX2 the only control available on the camera is the power button. All other operations like viewing, controlling the video capture, sharing videos and other setting can be done via the free iOs and Android apps that come with the camera.

Don’t expect miracles when it comes to footage quality. The Looxcie LX2 records in 480p (854×480 pixels) and allows live streaming in 320p (480×320 pixels) – which makes it OK for amateur video recordings.
