Don’t you wish your iPhone had wireless charging like the Apple Watch does? I didn’t think wireless charging would be a thing for me until my Apple Watch and its inductive charger landed on my desk. I now want this technology on my iPhone but until Apple delivers a wireless charging solution of its own, we’ll have to make do with third-party accessories.
Today, I want to talk about the ON Charger battery and the ON Case for your iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus which recently launched on crowd-funding platform Kickstarter. Both the charging base and the case feature a cool magnet assisted design making them cross-compatible with multiple smartphone brands. Read More
You may have noticed how much juice it takes to run Google Maps or the Maps app on iOS. If you are driving for a long distance, you aren’t going to want to keep your Maps app open the entire time, unless you can charge while driving.
It is highly likely that you have three, four, or even six rechargeable mobile devices in your home (possibly more). Whether you are using a smartphone, tablet, e-reader, wireless speaker, or some other device that uses a USB cable to recharge, there are probably a lot more gadgets lying around than you realize.
The first night I took off my Apple Watch, I ran into a problem. I went to plug the charger into the outlet behind my nightstand, and I realized both spots were taken—1 by my iPhone alarm dock and the other by my lamp. So I started looking into dual USB chargers.
Figuring I wasn’t the only one coming up a plug short, I decided to share my findings here on iDB. I’ve compiled a list of 8 dual USB chargers that I feel are worth checking out. The chargers vary in price and design, and as usual, I’ve only included those with high ratings. Read More
While we’re all iOS fanatics at iDownloadBlog, the reality of today’s tech world is that we all use so many different devices. That means we need different chargers to keep all our devices running.

With the Tego 3-in-1, you can get all three in one convenient, high quality cable. Plus, our deal gives you 30% off with free shipping. Read More
With such a high-profile launch of a new-category (fashionable) gadget on its hands, little wonder Apple is admittedly enlisting help of the world’s top fashion editors, celebrities and athletes in an unprecedented attempt to position the gizmo in the public’s consciousness.
The latest in celebrity Watch signings came via British professional rugby player and captain turned cyclist, Will Carling.
I travel a lot. Not necessarily on vacations mind you. I just mean, I’m out and about on a daily basis, gone for side family visits on the weekend, and fly on a somewhat regular basis. Consequently, my daypack is always stuffed with cables for my gadgets, iPhone, iPad, backup battery charger, Bluetooth headphones and the like.
Naturally, there is some overlap there with the Lightning cable, but sometimes you need to charge the iPhone and iPad simultaneously. More importantly, my daypack is made for lightweight daily stuff and every time I cram one more even small item, it gets filled. Thankfully, I’ve added Nomad’s NomadClip to the mix and I can store my charging cable on my belt clip, outside of the bag, and many other non-backpack locations. Read More
