[It's back] Deal alert: RAVPower 26800mAh Type-C battery with USB-PD up to 30W on sale for $55.99 ($24 off)

USB Type-C is great, but not all Type-C batteries are created equal. There are a lot of different charging standards right now, so one battery might fast charge a phone with Qualcomm Quick Charge, but it won't fast charge a Pixel or work to power a Type-C laptop. The giant RAVpower 26,800mAh battery pack will, and it's on sale for $55.99, down from $79.99.

Google announces 'made for Google' program to certify accessories

The focus of today's announcement might have been the new Pixel phones, but Google also had a nice little surprise that accompanied all the hardware-related news. At the bottom of the blog post for the new Pixel phones, Google revealed that it has a new program called "made for Google" which certifies that accessories like cases, cables, and headphones from different manufacturers meet the company's stringent requirements.

Google's official Pixel 2 cases include fabric, Bellroy leather, and more

What would a Google phone launch be without a bunch of fancy (and expensive) new phone cases in the Google Store? The Pixel team is really going all out this year with more materials, partners, and even a crazy photo lens case.

FLIR One Pro review: An excellent mobile thermal camera, for a price

FLIR's name is essentially synonymous with thermal cameras from cheap mobile sensors all the way up to industrial and military applications. The company first got into mobile devices with an iPhone-specific camera case and later a dongle. FLIR One came to Android a few years ago with a microUSB-equipped version, but that was right at the dawn of USB Type-C. Consequently, that first camera became obsolete quickly. Now there's a new FLIR One, actually two of them. The third-gen FLIR One costs $199 and the FLIR One Pro will run you $399.

Infinite Protection: Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ case review roundup (continuously updated)


Every new phone deserves to be protected, especially when you have an all-glass Samsung S8/S8+. I owned the much more fragile S7 Edge with its steeper curved display. There wasn’t a day where I wouldn’t have the phone in a case unless I was briefly taking it out for a cleaning. Since Samsung opted for an elegant, unique design with the S8, the display is costly to replace. I haven’t seen the official cost to repair the phone's display yet; although I’d imagine it’s more than the $250 for the S7 Edge. No case will guarantee 100% protection for your phone, but it will provide significantly more protection than no case at all.

Razer's new (expensive) power bank charges all the things, even your USB-C laptop

Razer, are you okay? You need help? I only ask because this new power bank doesn't have any unnecessary glowing LED accents, which is sort of your thing. This unusually understated battery has a capacity of 12,800mAh, which is on the large side. The real selling point here is that Razer's power bank can fast charge any phone, or even a laptop with USB Type-C.

FLIR announces updated FLIR One thermal cameras for Android with USB Type-C, a revamped app, and more

The first gen FLIR One was only for iPhone, but the second gen had Android support. The problem: in those days microUSB still reigned supreme, and it was non-reversible. That meant some phones had the port facing the "wrong" way to use the FLIR One dongle. Today, FLIR is announcing a new third generation FLIR One thermal camera that adopts the Type-C port. There are plenty of other changes, too.

Samsung's 2Piece Cover for the Galaxy S8 is the most hideous and terrible case I've ever seen

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 plus are two of the most attractive smartphones that have come out in the past few years. With their super-slim bezels, rounded corners, and glass backs that come in a variety of colors, the S8 and S8+'s good looks can't be denied. Most of the accessories that debuted alongside the duo, such as the Alcantara Cover and Clear View Standing Cover, aren't bad-looking either. However, there's one exception to the rule - the 2Piece Cover. If you want to make your gorgeous new phone look like absolute crap, you should seriously consider one of these.
