The LG G5 spare battery coffin is a brilliant little charger

51
LG G5 spare battery charger

This is what you can get for free in the U.S. if you get an LG G5 by April 30.

One of the more important features of the LG G5 is the battery. Specifically that it's removable. And because you can swap in a spare battery whenever you feel like it, it makes sense to have an extra on on hand. To that end, LG is giving a good many folks who ordered early a free spare G5 battery, complete with charging cradle coffin — and a sweet little adapter to boot.

As you might well have guessed, this isn't just a charging cradle.

Let's take a quick look.

HTC and Under Armour bringing UA HealthBox to Canada in May

1

HTC and Under Armour are bringing the UA HealthBox kit to Canada this May.

Available May 23 for $549.99 CAD, the UA HealthBox features three HTC-designed, Under Armour-operated health products: the UA Band, which tracks steps, heart rate, sleep, and calories; the UA Scale, which tracks weight goals; and the Heart Rate, a chest strap that accurately tracks heart rate during runs. All of the data is tracked by the UA Record app, available for Android and iOS.

The bundle also comes with one year of membership to Under Armour's MyFitnessPal and MapMyFitness health social networks.

Earlier this year, our Andrew Martonik had many positive things to say about the bundle in his review:

Each of the products in the HealthBox is executed extremely well. The UA Band is light, comfortable and tracks your activities as well as any simple wearable can. The UA Scale is beautiful, and offers effortless tracking of your (and your family's) weight and body fat percentage. The UA Heart Rate might be a tough sell at first, but once you get over the awkwardness of it it'll become second nature. And of course you can't forget the UA Record app, for without it none of these products would be worth your time — tying everything together into a central place completely makes the experience of the HealthBox.

HTC and Under Armour do plan to sell the products separately. Both the UA Band and Scale will run $229.99 CAD, while the Heart Rate will go for $99.99. Pre-orders go live today.

Oh, and it runs Android.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Wireless Charging Battery Pack review

53
Samsung Galaxy S7 Wireless Charging Battery Pack review

What at first seemed like a throwaway feature on yet another battery case ends up making it a realistic charging option.

As you may recall, I'm not the biggest fan of battery cases. They're cumbersome, come with a load of compromises and in the end don't add much of a charge to your phone. At the same time, the Galaxy S7's larger battery removes the need for a battery case for most people.

Samsung launched a new style of battery case with the Galaxy S7, which at the time seemed a little confusing. Rather than plug into the USB port like every other battery case, it uses Qi wireless charging to keep your phone powered up. Initially I wrote it off as a superfluous feature addition that didn't make a whole lot of sense for a case that's attached to the phone.

But then I used it, and it makes so much sense I can't believe it wasn't done before.

B&O Play's new $249 Bluetooth speaker looks absolutely gorgeous

B&O Play has a new Bluetooth speaker called the BeoPlay A1. The $249 speaker is the vendor's smallest to date, but it comes with a battery that lasts all day and has a built-in microphone that allows you to take calls. While there are several Bluetooth speakers in this segment that offer similar capabilities, the A1's design is its differentiator. Like all B&O Play's products, the A1 looks gorgeous, sporting an aluminium dome with perforations for the speaker grille and a soft-touch rubber base.
