You should stop using that fake Apple charger

Apple’s decision to charge $19 for a charger and then $19 for a cable to plug in has had the effect you’d expect on the world: everyone just buys knockoff chargers off Amazon instead.

But although most chargers you buy off the internet will work just fine most of the time, a series of recent tests have shown that there’s real danger to having a fake charger plugged in at home.

This $20 gadget lets you use your iPhone 7 in your car now that your aux-in port is useless

You’ve spent nearly a decade plugging your iPhone into your car using an aux-in port, allowing you to play all the music you want while charging your handset at the same time. Then Apple goes ahead and ditches the 3.5mm audio jack. Sure you can use the dongle included in the box to connect your phone to your old 3.5mm audio cable, but then your battery is going to take a hit since you can’t charge your iPhone 7 at the same time. Here’s a better option: The $20 iClever Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter works in any car on the planet and lets you charge your phone while you listen to your tunes. More →

Macbook Pro Dock

This $150 crowdfunder solves all the MacBook Pro’s worst problems

This $150 crowdfunder solves all the MacBook Pro’s worst problems

When Apple launched the new MacBook Pro, it was rightly hounded for choosing to only give the power laptop USB-C ports. It’s a trade-off: each USB-C port can do much more than any other port, as it can carry data, video and power through one cable, but you’re going to need a bunch of dongles to make your MacBook work with other devices.

Sure, companies have already launched all-in-one docking stations for the new MacBook Pro, but having to carry around a docking station that gives you the same functionality as a laptop from 2011 is a little annoying.

But put all those ports into a device that’s also a cooling pad and a large external battery? Now we’re talking.

Flir One transforms any iPhone into a thermal camera

Smartphones have come a long way over the past few years. Of that, there is no question. These tiny devices now pack as much power as a laptop computer, they pack cameras that are better than some dedicated point-and-shoot units, and they can run complex apps that would have been unthinkable just a year or two ago. There’s one feature that your smartphone will never include out of the box, however, and that’s where the FLIR ONE Thermal Imager for iOS comes in. This awesome accessory adds a thermal camera to any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with a Lightning port, and it’s discounted on Amazon right now for Cyber Week 2016. More →

You can finally feel good about buying Apple’s utterly hideous iPhone battery case

Apple’s Smart Battery Case for iPhone is gross. It’s ugly, and there’s really no getting around that. Before today, buying one should have come with a sense of shame and regret, but now that there’s a Product (RED) version, at least you can pick one up and know that you’re doing some good for the world, even if it’s at the expense of good taste.

Bluetooth Adapter

For just $18, you can make any headphones or powered speaker wireless

Don’t fight the future. 3.5mm analog audio jacks are going away. It’s happening. Everyone freaked out when Apple dumped the 3.5mm audio jack on its new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but other vendors are already opting to lose this antiquated single-use port in favor of modern digital options like USB-C and Lightning. Of course, none of this means you have to ditch your favorite headphones. Instead, pick up an Mpow Streambot Bluetooth Adapter on Amazon and turn your current headphones into wireless headphones. They also work with any powered speaker, or in your car to add Bluetooth to older car models. More →

Apple Watch Trade In

Apple will pay you zero money to trade in your Apple Watch

Apple will pay you zero money to trade in your Apple Watch

Apple has long offered a half-hearted trade-in program that gives lazy people a guaranteed, but below market rate amount for their old iPhone.

As spotted by 9to5Mac, Apple’s trade-in/recycling program now extends to the Apple Watch, but with a difference: in return for handing over your expensive, possibly gold-covered smartwatch that you bought from Apple for an extreme premium, the company will repay your loyalty in pixie dust.
