You can recharge your iPhone with fire

Let’s say you’re stranded on a desert island or even just camping, and you want to charge up your phone. There are obviously no outlets around, which means you’re out of luck, right? Wrong. As long as you have the ability to start a fire, you’ll be able to charge your phone as long as you have a device called the FlameStower USB Fire Charger. As YouTuber Jonathan Morrison demonstrates in a new video, this nifty gadget really does work, although you shouldn’t expect it to be especially fast at charging your device. More →

Mother's Day Gift Guide

This isn’t your mother’s Mother’s Day gift guide

This isn’t your mother’s Mother’s Day gift guide

By on May 2, 2016 at 11:43 AM.

Late last year in the heart of the holiday shopping season, we tried something new here at BGR. Instead of running a bunch of holiday-themed gift guides with the same old boring stuff you see on every other site, we published an “un-gift guide” packed with cool gear you couldn’t find in any other guide. We got tons of great feedback after publishing that unique guide, so we’re sticking with the theme.

This year ahead of Mother’s Day, gift guides are a dime a dozen. But unfortunately, they’re stuffed full of junk like Groupons for massages and discounted gardening tools. News flash: it’s 2016, not 1916. Being a mother doesn’t automatically mean you’re not a fan of fun gifts and cool technology, and we’re sick of all the assumptions to the contrary.

Welcome to our Mother’s Day gift guide, where you’ll find 10 tech-focused items that cool mothers young and old are going to love. And since you waited until the last minute to get your mother a Mother’s Day gift, we made sure that all 10 are eligible for free Prime shipping on Amazon. It’s OK, you can thank us later. More →

Can a $70 kitchen gadget really save you hundreds each year?

Can a $70 kitchen gadget really save you hundreds each year?

We don’t want to sound like an infomercial, but it’s the truth: one simple purchase really can save you hundreds of dollars. The value of the uncooked and uneaten food you throw away each week adds up quicker than you might imagine. In fact, we’ve seen some estimates that suggest 10% or even more of the money spent on groceries in some households ultimately goes to waste.

Instead of basically pulling cash out of your wallet and throwing it in the garbage, check out the Hamilton Beach 78213 NutriFresh Vacuum Sealer with 12 Bag Starter Set, which is under $70 with free express shipping on Amazon. More →

Our favorite crystal clear iPhone 6s case sports an integrated metal kickstand

A case is an absolute necessity for any iPhone, considering how slippery the aluminum that Apple uses is. And we all know that crystal clear cases are the way to go since they protect your iPhone without hiding that gorgeous design that Apple worked so hard on. What you might not know, however, is that not all clear cases are created equal — check out the OBLIQ Naked Shield Slim Fit Crystal Clear Case With Integrated Kickstand for the iPhone 6/6s or iPhone 6/6s Plus.

Cheap Guitar

It’s never been easy to learn to play guitar, but at least now it’s cheap

It’s never been easy to learn to play guitar, but at least now it’s cheap

In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death, taxes and the fact that you will never be as good a guitarist as Prince.

The word lost an icon last week, and if you missed it you should definitely watch this video showcasing one of his greatest performances ever. The story behind it is just as amazing. If you were a fan, there may be no better way to honor the late, great musician than to finally realize your dream of learning to play the guitar.

It’s not going to be easy, but at least now it’ll be cheap… today, for one day only, Amazon has a big sale going on four different guitars and you can buy one for as little as $189. None of them are as hot as Prince’s axe in the picture at the top of this post but hey, you have to start somewhere. More →

This kit lets you fix your broken iPhone screen yourself

We all know how nerve-racking it is the moment you feel your iPhone slipping out of your hand and dropping toward the ground. Whether it’s a 1-foot drop or a 6-foot drop, if the phone lands at the wrong angle the screen is done for. Sometimes there’s just no way to avoid it and Apple charges an arm and a leg to replace a cracked display.

Well guess what: There’s another option. More →

Hover Camera Price

There’s a new drone that’s actually a drone and we’re pretty sure you’ll want one

There’s a new drone that’s actually a drone and we’re pretty sure you’ll want one

It really shouldn’t be this refreshing to see a company unveil a drone that’s actually a drone, but alas. The term “drone” has been broadened to include a wide range of popular quadcopters that don’t have any autonomous capabilities at all, but there are still some companies building real drones for consumer use. Back in February we told you about an awesome drone that can follow you and record your every move with its built-in camera, though it’s a bit pricey for some. If you don’t want to part with that kind of cash you’ll be happy to learn that a new drone called the Hover Camera will soon be released, and it offers similar functionality in a much more compact design at a fraction of the price.
