Dreaming of unlimited power, thanks to dreamGEAR at #CES

image

A consistent theme at CES has been battery life, or the lack thereof.  iPhone Life has covered a number of gadgets and cases that can double or even triple the battery life of an iOS device thanks to a 2,000mAh battery.  So imagine the technolust when we saw a device with eight times that capacity!  They promise 480 hours for five devices!



CES innovations and trends: Wireless Power

image

It only took 5 minutes of exploring CES to realize that the iOS market is OVERSATURATED. For those of you who slept through economics 101 what I'm trying to say is, everyone and their mom is selling an iPhone/iPad accessory or app. Finding the truly innovative products is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Fortunately for you, our dear reader, I have tirelessly searched the endless sea of products to find the innovations and trends that are going to change your life in 2011 and beyond.



Staying fully charged at #CES

Las Vegas during the Consumer Electronics Show is the ultimate proving ground for a cellphone. First, consider that 100,000+ visitors are vying for already limited network connectivity. Constantly searching for a signal draws extra power. You are constantly on the go, away from your car or hotel making charging difficult. And you have to try to stay in touch with both your home and the office. These demands can push the iPhone's internal battery to the limit.



The only Iphone case review I’ll ever do – cos it’s also a Li-Polymer battery pack at only 59 grams!

I normally don’t pay attention to Iphone cases because I prefer to spend my money on apps, mp3s and epubs.



Who wouldn't want a wooden iPhone? JackBacks to the rescue!

Wondering what to get that special someone?  You know, the guy who has everything?  Well, you can be pretty sure he doesn't have a JackBack because they just became available for pre-order!  JackBacks are custom wood replacement backs for your iPhone 4, available in cherry, maple, walnut or mahogany.  You can have your JackBack laser etched with a custom design for only $10 more than the $89 base price for a truly unique gift.



Just Mobile UpStand Review

With the choice of iPad stands continuing to expand almost on a daily basis, iPad owners looking for the design that best suits their functional needs and aesthetic desires is becoming increasingly differentiated.  Going beyond the simple easel, Just Mobile's UpStand takes a fixed pedestal approach and matches it with the kind of high quality aluminum frame composite material that has the look of Apple's metallic design.

 



Quick and easy charging for your iPhone!

Here’s a recharging solution for your iPhone that’s easy to carry and HANDY! The Konnet PowerEZ Plus External Rechargeable Battery with stand not only transfers almost a full day’s charge back into your iPhone, but it also acts as a stand. You can watch a video while it’s charging!

I especially like that it’s small enough to fit in a pocket or purse. It charges via USB cable on you iPhone charger or laptop. Super easy and super quick. Love it!

Ivyskin's Smartcase goes the distance! Rugged protection plus extended battery!

image

Now I've seen it all.  I've been looking for a rugged iPad case that can withstand my occasional clumsiness, and give me peace of mind when I let my kids play with my iPad.  But I also wanted something that felt good in my hand, with a rubberized grip.  Not to be a dreamer, but an extended battery would be great, so I don't have to always plug in my iPad at night.  And a built-in stand would be nice.
