We’ve all got devices all but falling out of our pockets and the need for power to keep them all happy is almost insatiable. But with the following list of 40 of the absolute best power banks, changers, and other charging accessories to be found, you can stock up and make sure ...

Ditch the iPhone 11’s Short Cable for These 6 Extra Long USB-C to Lightning Cables

Halfpoint/Shutterstock The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max are the first iPhones to include a USB-C to Lightning cable for 18-watt fast charging. That’s great and all, but the included cable is only one meter (three feet) long. If you want to use your iPhone 11 while it’s charging (maybe you’re in bed, maybe you’re tall, maybe both), then you’ll want to upgrade to a longer USB-C to Lightning cable. Sure, you could just use one of your old (and slow) Lightning cables. But then you won’t reap the b...

The Best Headphone Amplifiers for Your Smartphone

FiiO, Audio-Technica Smartphones have come a long way, and they offer a convenient way to listen to music. But if you aren’t happy with your phone’s sound quality, then it may be time to invest in an external DAC. When you play a song on your phone, you’re playing an encoded digital audio file—at it’s most simplistic a stream of ones and zeros. The thing is, your headphones aren’t capable of turning that stream into analog sound without the help of a, very appropriately named, Digital to...

Born on drugs: For addicted moms with babies, the system’s success doesn’t always mean the same thing

The last of four parts. Read Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 Yvette Estrada’s father packed up and left on Christmas Day, when she was 12. That, she said, was the beginning of her pain. There were older cousins, cigarettes, beer. Soon, Estrada was messing with cocaine, speed, PCP. Pregnancy couldn’t stop her: The night before she went into labor, in 2004, she got high on meth. Her baby girl was born “pos-tox” — meaning drugs were in the infant’s blood — then swept into state custody and placed in fost...

The new iPad Pro has a USB-C port – so what can it do, exactly?

The iPad finally gets a dedicated port for connectivity, as you’d find on a “desktop” computer – and it’s loaded with potential uses, from power to music gear. Let’s break down exactly what it can do. “USB-C” is a port type; it refers to the reversible, slim, oval-shaped connector on the newest gadgets. But it doesn’t actually describe what the port can do as far as capabilities. So initially, Apple’s reference to the “USB-C” port on the latest iPad Pro generation was pretty vague. Since then,...

Apple iOS 12.1 beta update hints at landscape Face ID support for upcoming iPad Pro, iCloud syncing for Memoji

Apple released iOS 12.1 beta update earlier today and it suggests landscape Face ID support for upcoming iPad Pro models. Many rumors in the past suggested Apple would introduce Face ID support for iPads and in landscape orientation since unlocking in portrait mode would be inconvenient with a larger tablet form factor. iOS 12.1 also appears to coincide with a change to MFi game controllers to allow for clickable thumb sticks.

These chargers will fast-charge all the new iPhones – and they're cheaper than Apple's chargers

Look through the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X tech specs and you'll see that Apple has added support for fast charging, which will charge the new iPhones to 50 percent in 30 minutes. I highlight the word "support" because it means that Apple's new iPhones don't actually come with fast chargers included. If you want to fast charge your new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X, you'll have to spend extra cash to buy the necessary chargers and cables.  Specifically, you'll need a charger t...
