Nitecore NB10000 Powerbank Review

I have in my hands today the new Nitecore powerbank, which is a lipo pouch cell, allowing a very flat, rectangular (phone like!) size and shape.  It’s also comparatively high capacity, so read on for some thoughts and testing!

I heard about this new Nitecore powerbank/charger a while back, and finally have one in my hands.  Well not right now; I’m typing right now.  Who can hold a powerbank and type at the same time?  

Anyway, I wanted to give this one a test, and the nice people over at Illumn sent this one for me to play around with.  Read on for some thoughts!

XTAR EU4 USB Hub Review

I was in gross need of a USB port with QC3 capabilities for a charger or two I was testing.  I got super lucky that XTAR has this product just out, and they dropped one in the mail to me.  This power brick has three USB ports, one of which has QC3 capabilities.  The other two have output up to 2.4A, and there’s also a USB-C port!  Read on for my testing and thoughts!

Rofis MR30 Flashlight Review

I tend to like Rofis lights.  They’re well made, very functional, and more often than not, just neat little lights.  So I was excited when this MR30 showed up in the mail – the MR70 is still my go-to powerbank travel light.  The MR30 is smaller with the same capacity, and loses the side light (which I never really used anyway).  I’m excited to put it to the test!
