Wireless charging. I really thought it would be available on all premium Android devices by now, but it seems manufacturers still aren't sure whether this should be a default feature or not.
It's pretty disappointing that the new class of Nexi (pretty sure that's plural for nexus) opted for the UBS Type C or bust route. However, there are still a ton of devices on the market that sport inductive chargers.
For the best wireless charging experience I always recommend using a three coil charger. The additional coils create a larger charging area and make for a more consistent connection.
In other words, they are great for lazy people like myself that don't want the hassle of double checking to make sure their phone is actually charging when placed on a charging pad. Read More
There are two things that are staples in the bag that I carry basically everywhere I go: an external battery pack and charger, because sometimes I'm near a wall, and sometimes I'm not. At least one USB cable comes into the equation somewhere too, because what good is a charger without a cable. None, I'd say. None good.
Anyway, this new Energi 6K from TYLT is pretty neat, because it's both of those things in one thing. It's got a 6,000 mAh battery pack and charger all in one. It's not a Qualcomm-certified Quick Charger like the one I usually carry, but that's OK. Read More
Look, there isn't much exciting about car chargers that we haven't already seen before. I get it. But you know what? There's always a way to take something that's existed for a while and make it better, which is precisely what TYLT has done with its newest car charger, RIBBN.
If you've ever seen another TYLT car charger before, then RIBBN probably looks familiar to you - it's aesthetically very similar to the company's existing charger, BAND. But that's pretty much where the similarities end, because RIBBN is like BAND on steroids. It's a dual-port 4.8 Amp charger that can make easy work of charging two devices at once, all while providing the full power required to quickly charge both simultaneously. Read More

It's no secret that TYLT makes one of the best wireless Qi charging pads on the market, but did you know they did a car mount (or rather, will be doing - it's not out quite yet)? Read More
If you're in the market for some stylish new accessories, Tylt has a Cyber Monday deal for you. The company is offering a whopping 50% off everything it sells, including the VU wireless charger. However, there have been some issues with stability as the site gets hammered today, so you can also submit your email to be issued a 50% off voucher for use in the future.
Tylt has a healthy assortment of cables, external batteries, cases, and other stuff. It's a bit more expensive than competing gear, but that's why the 50% off deal is so cool. The VU charger is admittedly pretty neat, but costs $70. Read More
Wireless charging is awesome, but wireless chargers blow. They are so finicky. I have a Nexus 4 and an LG wireless charger, so I know all about this first hand: Take your wireless charging phone, put it on your wireless charger, and it charges, right? Well, only sometimes. The charging coil in the phone and in the charger need to be lined up just right for the power flow to happen. Move the phone 1 mm off center and it stops charging, bump the table it's on and it stops charging, breathe on it funny, and it stops charging.
7YL7 TYLT solves this pretty simply with a charge they call the "TYLT Vu." It has multiple charging coils in the charger, so there really is nothing to line up with.
