Backup batteries that light the way

This week’s roundup of accessories includes a new backup battery that doubles as a flashlight. Read on!



It’s getting nearly impossible to find a new backup battery that doesn’t also feature a flashlight. The $100 ChargeLight is another entry in that category—we’re not sure how much power it packs, but the makers say “it rivals tactical-grade LED flashlights.” That’s the bright idea.



The $21 High-Heeled Shoes Bamboo iPhone Stand is exactly what it sounds like—a reclining stand for your phone, made of environmentally friendly materials.



The $100 iKN105 Dual Charging Bluetooth Stereo Alarm bills itself as the “world’s first Bluetooth stereo alarm clock radio featuring K-CELL removable power cells”—which means your alarm clock is powering the backup battery for your iOS device all night long. (No flashlights, though. Guess we were wrong.)

The $100 Sport Pace earbuds are “wireless sports earbuds with premium sound, secure fit and integrated training app to enhance any sport.” Use in conjunction with the Jabra Sport Life app; the earbuds are now available for pre-order.



Oh, look! There’s already an accessory for the iPad Pro! Create for iPad Pro is an iPad keyboard and, well, we don’t know much else about it—but Logitech gets the honor of being first out the door of announcing the product, at least. Cost and availability details will be available at a later date.



The MagBak iPhone and iPad mounts are billed as “minimalist mounting solutions” that let you attach your iOS device to metal surfaces without adding much thickness or bulk. Both iPhone and iPad versions are available for $39 apiece.

The $60 Dock for Apple Watch combines graphite silicon and aircraft-grade aluminum to form a compact stand and charging station for your new Apple Watch. 


Steel Series

The Nimbus is pitched as “the first gamepad controller for Apple TV.” But not yet: Shipping and availability haven’t been confirmed yet—you’ll have to go to the website to be notified when the company is ready to start taking orders.
