MOTA 2600 mAh Universal USB Portable Power bank Battery...
This week’s roundup includes “the world’s lightest micro-amplifier”—a gadget that’ll help your iPhone music sound better. Read on!
Aqua ($80 MSRP) is billed as “the world’s lightest micro-amplifier”—it pairs with a regular pair of headphones to create a high-fidelity audio experience when listening to music on your iPhone or iPad.
Blink Home Security System ($219 MSRP, same price on Amazon) includes a bundle of three cameras that relay video to the Blink Home Monitor app on your iOS device; when motion is detected, the camera records a short burst of video, then saves it to cloud storage. (A live view feature is also included.)
You know about Roombas by now. The Roomba 980 ($900 MSRP, $885 on Amazon) lets you use the iRobot Home app to schedule cleanings by your robotic vacuum cleaner. The Roomba itself can run up to two hours between charges; it can navigate multiple rooms and clean around tables and chairs, but—thanks to cliff detection sensors—won’t go falling down the stairs.
The Battery Stick ($16.88 on Amazon) holds 2,600 mAh of power in reserve—it’s also tiny and great for carrying with you, and includes a portable flashlight.
Omnicharge Portable Power Bank ($129 MSRP) is a mind-boggling 20,400-mAh power bank with two USB ports for your iOS devices and an AC/DC outlet to power up your MacBook. It’s apparently popular—with more than a week left in its crowdsourcing stage, the makers’ production goal of $50,000 has already been exceeded by a factor of 10.
The BookBook for iPad Pro ($100 MSRP, same price on Amazon) “is a gorgeous leather case reminiscent of a vintage sketchbook”—and in keeping with the iPad Pro’s capabilities, it has a holster for your Apple Pencil. Create in “sketcher’s mode,” then show off your masterpiece to the world in “presentation” mode.
