New Portable Battery Chargers from Powerocks, Just Mobile, and Lepow — Nemo Memo Comparison
Lepow Moonstone 6000 (comes in several attractive colors)
Just Mobile Gum++ (comes in black, white, and silver)
Powerocks Stone 3 (white only)
Portable USB battery chargers are getting smaller, smarter, and better looking. Everyone needs at least one when you are away from AC or USB power sources, and when the power grid in inaccessible.
Lepow’s 6000mAh Moonstone is gorgeous, priced to sell, and has both a standard and a quick charge output port. Just Mobile’s 6000mAh Gum++ is tiny, with one output. Powerocks’ 7800mAh Stone 3 has a very clever power status indicator, plus two ports each capable of sending power to an iPad. Which one should you buy, and why?

iFlash LED Flashlight
Gadgets and Gear
When Apple launched the iPhone 4 with an LED light, I was envious as that feature was lacking on my iPhone 3GS. Photographs on my iPhone 3GS were often dark and unsalvageable. That problem is no longer applicable thanks to a nifty LED device by Gadgets and Gear.
The iFlash is a small (.75″ W x 1.75″ L) LED light that can be used for a flashlight or as a flash for the iDevices. It is compatible with the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, iPod Nano 3, 4, 5, iTouch 1, 2, 3, 4, and the iPad 1 and 2. The device does not require batteries as it derives its power from the iDevice. It did not drain my iPhone battery substantially. The iFlash contains a tiny, high efficiency capacitor to protect against a power overload.
