FOSPower BlackOnyx: cheap wired headphones that truly impress

10

Wired headphones aren't going anywhere — especially with great deals like this.

With headphone jacks disappearing, and more people moving towards Bluetooth, is there a still place for wired headphones in today's world? Well, FOSPower is proving that there is, and that you don't have to spend a lot to get great sound and a comfortable fit.

There are enough gadgets and electronics that I have laying around that I need to remember to charge, and the last thing I want is for my headphones to not power up when I want to use them. That, plus the lower cost and lighter weight, make wired headphones preferable for the foreseeable future.

JBL Charge 3 and Clip 2 prove there's still innovation in Bluetooth speakers

JBL Charge 3 and Clip 2 speakers

You can find Bluetooth speakers anywhere — but JBL's latest stand out.

No matter your needs, there's a Bluetooth speaker out there to match — and you don't have to look hard to find one, either. For most people, their only real need is "the cheapest price possible" — but many will pay a bit for better features, quality and sound. And that's where JBL comes in, with the latest iterations of two of its Bluetooth speakers — the Charge 3 and Clip 2.

JBL isn't in the race to the bottom. It's hoping to stay on the higher end with high quality materials and of course sound, with some great features that can help turn a Bluetooth speaker experience from an "every once and a while" thing to an every-day useful accessory. Let's take a look at the JBL Charge 3 and Clip 2 speakers.

Charging your Nexus on the go with the Monoprice 10,000 mAh USB-C battery

48

Nexus fans deserve a battery pack made just for them, too.

External battery packs that support Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 or 3.0 standards are quite easy to find, but when you're looking for one that can do 5V/3A output for the latest Nexus phones' "Rapid Charging" your options are ... limited. Monoprice is well known for its accessories of all kinds, and amongst its stable of Select Series external batteries it offers a USB-C version perfectly targeted at the Nexus 6P and 5X users out there.

It's a very standard 10,000 mAh battery pack that will give you all the capacity you need, but it has the added bonus of being charged by a USB-C port that also pulls double duty as an output at Nexus Rapid Charging speeds. How does it work in the real world? I've been using it for a couple of weeks, and here's what I've found.

What I'm using: LD West smartphone holster

223

My phones don't fit in my pockets.

I'm not talking about an Galaxy S7 Edge or a Nexus 6P, either. My HTC 10 does not fit comfortably in my front pockets. My Nexus 5X does not fit comfortably in my front pockets. And when I go look for other jeans, short of baggy cargo pants or a few jumpsuits, they don't fit well in those pockets either. And that's a problem, because I, like so many of us, spend just about every waking moment with my phone on me. I might not be using it every moment, but I need it on me as I walk around my apartment or around my TV station.

And now, doing that is about five times easier thanks to a gadget I never would've considered a year ago: the LD West smartphone and wallet holster.

I made a pizza and charged my phone with a camp stove because the future is amazing

23

This is hands-down my new favorite camping accessory.

My family is full of people who enjoy camping. Sometimes that means hiking the Appalachian Trail for a few days with no tech at all, and sometimes that means renting a few campsites together with a cooler full of tasty drinks and a fire that regularly encourages Park Rangers to come check on us. When I go hiking, the BioLite Camp Stove is usually in my pack. It's great for making a small fire and I like knowing I can charge a phone in an emergency. At a campground you already have grill tops and fire pits, so for me there's never been a need to bring something else for cooking before.

I stand before you a changed camper. This weekend I cooked the perfect pizza while charging my phone on the larger BioLite BaseCamp stove, and I'm unlikely to go family camping without this stove ever again.

How to get the Huawei stainless steel mesh band look for less

Is there a cheaper version of the Huawei mesh band?

The stainless steel mesh band for the Huawei Watch is a beauty. It's modern and classic at the same time, looks great with every outfit, and it's popular. But with a starting price of $129, it's not exactly nice to your wallet. We have some options that will still look great for way less.
