Meet our new favorite HD home security camera

We covered the Yi Home Camera a while back and at $50 shipped, it’s still without question one of the best gadget purchases you can make for your home. The company recently launched a new version of its home camera though. While it is a bit more expensive than the old model, it adds in a tremendous amount of new functionality and after testing it, we can safely say that it’s our favorite new home security cam by far.

Check out the new Yi Home Camera 2, which is now available on Amazon for $129.99 with free shipping. You’ll be glad you did. More →

This tiny device might be every iPhone owner’s new best friend

This tiny device might be every iPhone owner’s new best friend

The iPhone’s lack of expandable storage has created an entirely new breed of services and accessories aimed specifically at iPhone users. $650-$750 is a huge amount of money to pay for a smartphone with just 16GB of storage, and that 16GB of space always seems to vanish in a matter of weeks considering how big games and video files are these days. Even users with 64GB or 128GB iPhones often end up filling their handsets with data, and then the dreaded errors like “cannot capture video” begin to appear.

Several solutions exist for this problem. You can use a service like Google Photos to back up your images and videos, or you can use a device like the Lyve Home Photo and Video Manager. Personally, I like the simplicity and efficiency of a simple iPhone-compatible flash drive, and I may have just found my new favorite one. More →

The 5 best-selling iPhone cases on Amazon

Even if you choose an installment plan, your iPhone will end up costing you $650, $850 or even over $1,000 when all is said and done and you factor in taxes. That’s the kind of investment you need to protect, but Apple’s AppleCare+ warranty might not be the best way to protect it. Sure you can swap out your phone if something happens to it, but you have to pay a deductible when you do. How about trying to make sure nothing happens to damage your phone in the first place?

The following are the five best-selling iPhone cases on Amazon in reverse order from No. 5 to No. 1. They start at just $4.98 with free shipping, so you really have no excuse. More →

This iPhone 6s case wants to give your phone a DSLR-quality camera

The iPhone 6s is already one of the world’s top smartphone cameras and some pro photographers have compared its performance with digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras that are typically used in pro photo shoots. You might not need to use the iPhone 6s camera for professional photo sessions, but there’s a new case that should certainly improve your photography game. More →

iPhone Flash Drive

The lack of expandable memory is easily one of the biggest problems with Apple’s iPhone lineup. Yes, Apple makes more money by forcing customers to cough up extra cash for models with more internal storage. But Apple usually puts the customer first and this is a rare instance where that’s clearly not the case.

Thankfully, there are a few external solutions that give your iPhone extra storage space. They typically look like standard flash drives but we’ve found a very cool alternative. The Lexar JumpDrive C20i 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive looks like a plain old USB-to-Lightning charger cable, but it packs a hidden 128GB flash drive that can add store to any PC or iOS device. More →

Stream From Computer To TV

If you’ve cut the cord, this $59 device is absolutely essential

If you’ve cut the cord, this $59 device is absolutely essential

There are a million different media streaming boxes out there like a Roku, Amazon’s Fire TV and the Apple TV, so cord cutters have plenty of options when it comes to streaming online movies and TV shows to their television sets. As great as these devices have become though, they’ll still never have access to as much content as your computer will.

If you’ve cut the cord — or even if you haven’t — forget the set-top box and check out the Actiontec ScreenBeam Wireless Display Kit on Amazon, which is currently on sale for just $59.20. With this awesome kit, you can stream anything and everything you want to your TV in gorgeous full HD resolution. More →

Best Portable Charger

First-of-its-kind device acts as a portable generator for a fraction of the price

First-of-its-kind device acts as a portable generator for a fraction of the price

Generators costs hundreds of dollars or even thousands if you want a high-end model with a big tank. Sometimes you can’t get around the need for a generator — for example, if you live in an area with lots of storms that knock out your power all the time. But for most people, a generator isn’t really necessary.

If you want something to serve as a backup power source every now and then when the power goes out, or to charge your gear when you go camping, there’s a new option out there that costs a fraction of what you’ll pay for a generator. It’s also portable, so it’s a better option than a traditional UPS backup battery.

Meet the Anker PowerHouse Compact 434Wh Portable Power Station, the most compact portable power supply you’ll ever come across. It’s huge 434 watt-hour battery will fully charge a laptop from empty 15 times, and yet it’s compact enough to carry anywhere. More →

Echo is our favorite Amazon product ever, and it’s on sale for one day only

Amazon’s lineup of Kindle eBook readers and tablets is by far the company’s best selling hardware product line, and for good reason. Amazon has come a very long way in the eReader market and there’s little question that its devices are best in class. The brand new Kindle Oasis shows that Amazon has no plans to let go of its lead anytime soon, and we can’t wait to get our hands on one after preordering ours recently.

But there’s a different Amazon hardware product out there that is easily our favorite of all time. It’s the Amazon Echo, and it’s on sale right now for one day only. More →

This HD camera drone packs a bunch of extras for just $80

Finding a decent drone quadcopter for a fair price isn’t always easy since drones are so popular these days.

Is there no happy medium?

There is, and the Holy Stone U818A HD Plus Drone with Camera might be just what you’re looking for. More →

These incredible iPhone cases heal themselves from scratches

If you have an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6s — or the Plus versions, of course — a clear case is one of the best options you have. You have to protect your phone from drops and dings, obviously, but you also don’t want to hide that gorgeous design. As it turns out though, not all clear cases are created equal. In fact, some clear cases have capabilities that seem sort of… magic.

Take Just Mobile’s TENC Self-Healing Ultra-Slim Transparent Cases for the iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 6/6s Plus. On the surface they look just like any other clear case, but they’re hiding a pretty incredible secret: They’re coated with a special layer of plastic that is somehow able to heal itself from scratches!

This shock-resistant iPhone 6s battery case packs 3,200mAh of juice for just $47

Apple’s iPhone battery case is a decent option for people looking to extend the iPhone’s lackluster battery life. But to be frank, there are a million better options out there. Take the SUPCASE MFI Certified Beetle Power Holster Battery Case for Apple iPhone 6/6s, for example. It packs a much larger battery than Apple’s case and it’s also shock-resistant, so it protects your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s from damage when you drop it.

And best of all, it’s on sale for just $46.74 from now through May 9. More →
