Gadget of the Week! [#2]


For this week’s gadget of the week, we will go over some of the essentials for smartphones with Quick Charge 2.0 support and a new budget-friendly bluetooth headsets with excellent microphones.

First, Aukey has updated their 10,000mAh USB Power Bank with a new rectangular black design. This USB Power Bank fully supports Quick Charge 2.0 on one of its two ports. If you have a phone like a Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, LG G4, Nexus 6, or any other smartphone with Quick Charge 2.0 support, this USB power bank will charge your smartphone at the quickest rate. If you travel often on public transportation or even the airplane, this USB Power Bank comes in handy as you can charge from 0 to 50% for most smartphones in just 30 minutes and 0 to 100% in an hour. I also have the Anker 10,000mAh USB Power Bank that also supports Quick Charge 2.0 but have found that the Aukey gives you more charges based on my experience and real-life testing. So, definitely recommend the Aukey although the Anker one is much smaller.

Second, if you drive a car you will definitely want to have a car charger with Quick Charge 2.0 support. I have been using the CHOE Tech Car Charger for the last 3 months and it comes with whopping 4 charging ports. One port is dedicated to Quick Charge 2.0 while the other three are can charge at 5V 2.4amps each. The car charger can output a total of whopping 51 watts, which means you will be able to charge 4 devices super fast no problem. I highly recommend to get one of these as they are very affordable and may help you recharge your smartphones and tablets much faster than others. Also, car chargers tend to break easily but the CHOE brand is definitely been around and this is a good brand to buy. If you own a smartphone with Quick Charge 2.0 and you commute to work in your car, this is definitely a must buy.

Third, if you are looking for nice set of bluetooth headsets with excellent microphones, check out the Syllable Bluetooth Headsets, which sell for just under $30 on Amazon. These wireless headsets feature a sleek design along with two noise-cancelling microphones which work excellent for phone calls also. You can easily recharge the headsets using any micro-USB cable and the ears are easily adjustable by sliding. The sound on these headsets can be pretty loud along with mild level of bass. While these headsets won’t give you quality sound of a $300 headphones, they will give you a better sound over most earbuds out there. My favorite feature is the two microphones with noise-cancelling which are one of the best I’ve tried. If you are looking for something to listen to music and make calls, the Syllable Bluetooth Headsets may be the best you can get for under $30 so check it out.  (UPDATE: These $30 headphones sound just as good as $200 Sony MDRXB950BT, which I was able to compare and returned the Sony.)
