Neat Premium USB Cable Kickstarter

Do you ever think that the cable that came with your phone is too flimsy, too delicate, too short/long or too plain?  Well JUICIES the makers of higher-end lightning and micro USB cables probably have you covered.  The JUICIES+ XS & XL Kickstarter is entering its final days and will allow them to make shorter and much, much longer versions of their premium cables at the mere 1ft and kind of ridiculous 10ft lengths.  With anodized aluminum ends that match the standard colours of most mobile devices and actual woven metal cable shielding,  JUICIES+ cables are undoubtedly a step above the average cable you’d find in an electronics shop.  Check out their Kickstarter here if you’re interested in supporting them and snagging yourself some very short or very long cables in the process.

Manufacturer: Newer Technology
Current Retail Price: $24.95 (currently on sale for $9.00)

Last year we took a look at the NuGuard KXs Screen Protector for iPhone 4/4S and concluded that it was excellent.  There were a couple of small quirks, but its look, feel and functionality were second to none.  We’ve had a while now to test the equivalent KXs screen protector for iPhone 6 Plus to see if it continues the series’ fine tradition.  Does the KXs screen protector for iPhone 6 Plus keep pushing the envelope or just tread water? Read on to find out if this iteration is as impactful as the last.

hub-it

Manufacturer: Eggtronic
Current Retail Price: $79.99 US

With so many electronics on the go these days it can be hard to find a place to plug them all in. Multiple-USB AC plugs, which we normally prefer, go a way toward helping this problem but they’re usually restricted to just 2 or 3 USB ports at most. Eggtronic saw a need for a highly customizable Cadillac-level option in the realm of USB hubs and charging accessories, so they launched the HUB IT. We got our hands on a review unit of this interesting product, so read on to see if we think the HUB IT is charged or running on empty.

nes30-6

Manufacturer: 8Bitdo
Current Retail Price: $39.99

Last year we reviewed 8Bitdo’s great take on a wireless Bluetooth Famicom controller, the FC30. This year, 8Bitdo has expanded its offerings to include a similar controller, but this time based on the classic NES controller. Does their NES-style controller live up to the lofty reputation they have established for themselves with the FC30 or is it a quick cash-in on their early successes? Read on to find out a bit more.

NuGuard KXs Screen Protector for iPhone 4/5

Current Retail Price: $9.99 (“Case Friendly” 4/4S) / $10.79 (Full Size 4/4S)

Let’s face it, there are thousands of kinds of screen protectors for smartphones these days.  I personally have paid everywhere from about $2.00 to $30.00 for screen protectors of varying quality for my iPhone over the years.  Not all screen protectors are made equal either, each one seems to tout a different feature: anti-glare, extra clarity, multiple Hs of hardness, even extra-oleophobic surfaces.  I even ordered “Diamond” screen protectors once thinking that they would be “tough like a diamond” and when they arrived they were so full of sparkles that they considerably obstructed the iPhone screen.  To compliment their NuGuard KX line of slimmer protective iPhone cases (that we quite liked) NewerTech recently launched the NuGuard KXs line of screen protectors for the iPad, iPhone, and even Galaxy S4.  These screen protectors (or “screen armour”) claim to go a step further in protecting your costly devices’ screens by adding a moderate level of impact absorption into the mix.  Does the NuGuard KXs follow in the footsteps of its namesake or does it just blend in with the screen protecting masses?  Read on to find out how impactful our impression is of this new screen protection contender.
