  • Cellet Super Fast Universal USB Car Charger

    Those who spend a lot of work time in the car know the value of a car charger for phones and tablets. This one is special as it has two USB ports that each deliver 2.1 amps. It will charge two tablets as quickly as possible.

    Its circuitry prevents overcharging any device and shuts off when it senses the gadget is packing a full charge.

    You’ll need to supply your own USB charging cables. The charger is available for $19.99 at Amazon.

  • Pendulumic S1 Stance Headphones

    Those lucky enough to have permission to use headphones at work, or those with long commutes on public transport, know the value of good headphones to use with a tablet or phone.

    Wireless headphones have fewer frustrations than the wired variety but often have poorer audio reproduction. These wireless headphones from Pendulumic are the exception, with studio-quality audio output.

    We have been using these headphones for weeks and they sound stunning. The audio is so crisp and clear, you can hear every single instrument that's playing, even when listening to heavy metal music. A friend who edits audio professionally has told us the Pendulumics are studio quality.

    The S1 Stance headphones connect over Bluetooth, are both Android and iPad tested, and can also be plugged in with the included cable. This cable has media player controls, which also used for receiving phone calls when paired with a phone, and has an integrated microphone. The physical volume knob on the right ear cup makes this one of the easiest headphones to use that we've tested.

    The headphones charge via microUSB, and last over 18 hours of constant playback per charge. There are two AAA batteries in one of the cups that can be turned on when the internal battery is empty. This gives the S1 Stance a playback time of 30 hours.

    The S1 Stance is very light and can be worn comfortably for hours due to the soft leather used on the ear cups and the adjustable headband.

    The $199 price tag from Pendulumic is not cheap, but for the best headphone audio the author has experienced, it's not that bad.

  • Ummmm.

    Some of those items are over $10. perhaps small amounts, but the heading is wrong! And the last item... those headphones are $199. FAR from being a $10 gadget... But I do like that ipad/tablet carrying case.. Might make a great gift!

    The TaoTronics Mini Wireless keyboard was a good find. Might have to try that one out.

    Thank you very informative. Can't believe I'm saying this but I would rather give up my TV than my Kindle. I also just discovered clippings.io for my Kindle notes and Kindle4rss.com for sending blogs to my Kindle which makes it even better.
