Misleading Battery Life Specs from Garmin Nuvi 780

Misleading Battery Life Specs from Garmin Nuvi 780

April 10, 2010 by · 14 Comments 

I recently purchased a Garmin nuvi 780 portable GPS, and quickly noticed that the battery life was much less than the spec’d – averaging 45 minutes for me before low battery warning and subsequent shutdown in less than 60 minutes. With a battery life advertised “up to 5 hours” this seems well short of the […]

Case Mate Fuel Lite iPhone Battery Pack Review

January 9, 2010 by · 24 Comments 

Rarely am I just flat out disappointed with a product. Well, that’s the case with the OrangeUK-exclusive Case Mate Fuel Lite iPhone battery pack. It just flat out hasn’t worked for me. Period. In theory, what it’s supposed to do, is to provide a 1.5x battery life for the iPhone. This way, you get that […]

Back in January, right after I had made my New Year’s resolutions, I reviewed the Polar RS400. It is therefore fitting that I finish the year by reviewing its older brother, the Polar RS800CX PTE. To clarify a common question from the start, the Pro Team Edition (PTE) of the RS800CX is identical to the […]

Mophie Juice Pack Air for iPhone – OK, but Fragile

June 18, 2009 by · 35 Comments 

The Mophie Juice Pack Air is a great product in concept. With the iPhone 3.0 Software and the ability to play some serious games, listen to music via Bluetooth headphones, and do more imaging, the appeal of a larger battery was very high for me. Not only that, I usually found myself in situations where […]

Nike Triax Speed 100 watch review

December 7, 2008 by · 93 Comments 

Ever since I started cycling more and more, using an analog watch on my bike started becoming more of an issue since the vibrations can damage mechanical movements. So, I ventured on a quest to find a cheap, reliable, and highly visible digital watch for me to use whilst I biked. After much research, I […]

Apple Bluetooth Headset Review

August 6, 2008 by · 6 Comments 

I think I have a Bluetooth Headset Fetish. Not in the silly kind of way where I walk around all day with one in my ear, but moreso in a scifi-ish sort of way. I’m fascinated by the technology that has allowed us to seemingly be talking to ourselves, as viewed by others, but to […]
