Credit Card Sized Backup Battery Pack For Micro USB Smartphones - Android, Blackberry

Once I was looking to buy binoculars. While I was checking the online forums for reviews, I got onto the best piece of advice I could ever get “The best binoculars are those that you have with you”!! Wow … How powerful is that? Since than, this advice influenced many of my purchasing decisions.
Think about it … how many times you wanted to have that super DSLR with you, or the brand new shinny iPad, or the 6″ GPS unit, or those military grade binoculars … to find out that you left it at home for the convenience of not carrying it with you all day long…

You might wonder what the link between buying binoculars and smartphone backup batteries? Well … The best backup battery is the one you have with you! Most backup batteries are bulky and you have to worry about carrying another “gadget” in your pockets. It’s easy to forget about them and, when you need them, to simply realize that your backup is at home, charging.

Things are different with the Credit Card Sized Backup Battery. Once charged, you can simply slide it in your wallet and keep it there until needed. The backup gives you an additional hour of usage for most smartphones out there. It is compatible with Android and Blackberry smartphone, and basically any phone / gadget that uses a micro USB port for charging (iPhone users can use it via additional plug convertors).
The backup battery has a micro USB cable included, is covered by a Lifetime Warranty and features the following sizes: 3 1/4″ W x 2″ H x 1/4″ D. (1 oz.) – that’s 8.25W x 5.08H x 0.63D (28 grams) for our European visitors.

Chances you will forget your wallet at home are mince, so getting a credit card sized backup battery will make you the owner of the best battery backup up pack ever (for the simple fact that you will always have it with you)!

EyeTV Mobile - Turn Your iPad and iPhone Into a Classic TV - Live TV

One of the features missing on most tablets and smartphones is Live TV. Don’t get me wrong – you can get almost any TV channel on your gadget via the internet, but what I am saying here is that good, old TV (you know … the one that we used to get with the rabbit ears) is missing from the most devices.

Surprisingly, most Chinese smartphone knock-offs have it incorporated … not sure how they do it and mighty Apple, Samsung, HTC and LG are “not able” …

Anyway – is you own an iPhone 4 (or latter) or an iPad, you can get the Live TV on your device by using an EyeTV adapter. Basically, you hook up the adapter in the 30 pin connector (a 30 pin to Lighting is available too, to make your iPhone 5 and iPad 4 and Mini compatible), instal the iOs app and you’re good to go!

The programming is featured by Dyle.tv (head over their website to check the coverage in your area) and covers the most important city areas in US and Europe. Once the EyeTV adapter purchased, there are no monthly fees for the TV service – just make sure it’s available in your area).

Charge Up To 5 Apple Devices With The Griffin PowerDock 5 iPad, iPhone, iPod

With the number of tablets and smartphones constantly increasing in each household, it gets more and more tougher to charge and organize your family’s gadgets while not in use.

The guy at Griffin have you covered tough. Their latest release, the PowerDock 5, consists of a high quality white charging base with 5 individual slots for storage as well as 5 USB slots for charging. While Griffin targets this charging dock to Apple devices, we see no reason why this could not be used with other OS devices like Android or Blackberry. At the end of the day, almost any gadget released today has USB charging capabilities.
