Revocharge Wireless Charging Pack For iPhone And Android Smartphones
With smartphones getting bigger, more powerful and more energy hungry every day, we welcome any new gadgets that promise to solve this issue and offer an increased battery life … at least so we can finish the day on one charge!

Revocharge is a new multifunctional breed of smartphone case which promises increased power resources for iPhone and select Android devices by combining good old phone case protection with wireless charging and an extended battery to make your life easier!
Here’s how it works – the main element is the smartphone case. It’s lightweight, only 13.4mm thin, made of strong polycarbonate material and offers access to all native buttons and ports. The case sports a wireless charging receiver which can be hooked to a desktop charger or a car mount and wirelessly charges your devices. This is where it becomes interesting – the smart case also comes with a removable magnetic extended battery which ads 2,000 mAh or 3,000 mAh (depending on the model) to your phone’s battery. If you’re not sure what this means – the iPhone battery has 1,440Mah – so the Revocarge doubles and more an iPhone’s endurance!

ALSO CHECK the Air Dock Wireless Car Charger Holder For Smartphones and the iQi Mobile – iPhone Wireless Charging On The Cheap.

Another cool thing – you don’t have to always use the extended battery (it adds some bulk to the case), you can leave it in your car or have it in your pocket or bag and only use it when you’re close to be out of power!

The Revocharge available for iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, Samsung Note 3/4, HTC ONE M8, Galaxy S4/S5 and it is in project mode at Kickstarter, it reached its funding cap and you can get a one for an early bird price of $49 ($50 less than what it will retail for).

Everpurse - The iPhone Charging Purse That Will Triple Your Smartphone's Battery Life
If you’re anything like me (or the other 1.75 billion smartphone users on Earth) you must know how annoying it is to look at your phone’s screen at noon and see your battery only has 30% left for the rest of the day!
This is a constant problem of smartphones and I really hope manufacturers will be able to squeeze-in 5x-10x batteries in the near future! But, until then, although I tried many improving battery gadgets like iPhone Power Pack Cases, magnetic back covers and even the TsirTech battery wristband, finishing my day with battery juice left seems to be a rare miracle! (P.S. I even tried some of Gargamel’s highly rated black magic … still no luck!!!).

But, there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel! At least for the ladies in our lives! Enter the EverPurse!
The EverPurse can be used as a standalone purse or as a purse insert and contains a built-in battery and charging dock for smartphones. Once you finish using your phone, simply slide it into the EverPurse and it starts charging right-away!

While on the outside it looks like real magic, here’s how things work on the inside: EverPurse features a special pocket with a smartphone charging dock. When you insert your phone in this special pocket, the bag guides it to perfectly connect with the dock and starts charging your phone. The EverPurse has an internal battery which can give 2 extra charges to your iPhone and can be charged by USB cable or wirelessly, using the included wireless charging pad that comes with the bag.

The EverPurse is made of natural leather, comes in a range of colors and models, can be used with iPhone 5/5s/5c or Samsung Galaxy S5. Available for pre-order with delivery in December 2014.

Oral-B Smart Series Or Tooth Brushing 2.0
It was just about time the good ol’ classic tooth brush gets an upgrade (and yes electric toothbrush, I am looking at you too!!!)!
The German Oral-B Smart Series is deemed to be the world’s first interactive tooth brush that collects, analyses and advises you how to better clean your teeth.

The tooth brush connects with free Android and iPhone apps via low-energy Bluetooth 4, tracks a number of brushing-related metrics such as how often, how long and how well are your brushing your teeth and allows cleaning program customization based on your dentist’s professional advice. Here’s how Oral-B describes it:
Delivers Expert Guidance with Focused Care: The purpose is not to outsmart dental professionals, but to work hand-in-hand with them. Dental professionals can program patients’ brushing routines in the app to help improve their brushing behaviors and focus on problem zones within the mouth.

While pricing and availability details are still unclear at this point, one thing is sure … I would hate my dentist being able to log into his portal and see how and when I brush my teeth … Imagine him starting to send notifications about it … I can already see his triumphal smile …

Noke Bluetooth Padlock
Just as the iFingerLock biometric padlock we featured earlier, the Fuz Design Noke Padlock is designed to overcome classic padlock problems such as losing the keys or forgetting the opening combinations.
The Noke padlock connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and, via free iPhone and Android apps allows easy setup and operation. You can setup multiple smartphones to open a Noke, you can share access with other users, you can check usage history and easily unlock the padlock without even pulling the phone from your pocket.
The Noke padlock has a built-in battery which lasts up to a year of usage and, if you run out of battery or if you don’t have your phone with you, it can be operated by simply tapping the hinge (just as classic Morse code) and entering a quick click code previously set up.

The Noke Padlock is in project mode at Kickstarter and you reserve one for $59 (that’s about $30 less than what it would retail for). The project already reached it’s funding cap 9meaning that the Noke will be produced and released to the market) and the delivery is scheduled for February 2015.

GOW Smart Fabric Workout Shirt With Integrated Sensors
Improve your workouts with the GOW Smart Fabric Shirt With Integrated Sensors.
This fancy smart-shirt features a HRM (heart rate monitor), sensors, Bluetooth connectivity and free GOW iPhone and Android apps! How’s that sounding for a running shirt?

All you have to do is select between four training modes: running, biking, hiking, or working out at the gym, and let the shirt do its job! The HRM will transfer workout data to the smartphone app, which, based on the received information, will calculate burned calories, traveled distance, best times, ran tracks and even compete against your friends!
The workout outfit is available for men (as a t-shirt) and for women (as a bra), is made of seamless fabric, ensures maximum comfort, moisture release and avoids chafing (technical yarn with Bosy thermoregulation), can be hand washed or machine washed, and the HRM unit can be cleaned, if necessary, with mild soap and clean water.

ALSO CHECK the Superman Alter Ego Compression Shirt an the Superhero Muscle Shirt we featured earlier from Under Armour.

The best part about it is that you get an all-in-one-training-cool-2.0-t-shirt and you no longer have to worry about gearing up a ton of gadgets before going out running. Considering all gadgets are included in the shirt, you will probably have to dismiss them once the t-shirt wears out, but, given it’s reasonable pricing – $79.99 US as we speak (hey … that’s not a lot more than the price of a good, brand working shirt) , it’s still worth the shot!

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.
