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).

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.

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.
