Cabin Brings MagSafe-Like Capabilities & Backup Power To iPhone

Cabin by a start-up compact called Hevo Labs is taking on Apple at its own game with possibly the sleekest charging accessory ever to be put on Kickstarter. And yes, this is yet another Kickstarter product that has surpassed its original funding goal of $50,000 within days. It seems like all the coolest product ideas stem from this amazing crowed-funding platform. All applauding aside, Cabin is an iPhone accessory that is trying to tackles two different things at once using the brilliant power of magnetism. This is one of those accessories that you'll desperately want.

Although it doesn't have the most attractive product name, Cabin sure does impress us with its all-aluminum and possibly the best looking, ultra-slim battery pack which attaches to the back of the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s using a MagSafe-like magnetic connection. It was designed to be as unobtrusive as possible, yet it still packs a 2200mAh rechargeable battery under a svelte-looking, contoured aluminum unibody construction - which we think fits Apple's design language better than any battery case out there. That's partly because the Cabin battery isn't really a case.

Bluelounge Kickflip Makes Your MacBook Pro More Awesome

Bluelounge has come out with an ingenious way of adding flexibility to MacBook Pro users using an adhesive-backed flip-out kickstand leg it calls the Kickflip. When adhered to the bottom of either a 13-inch or a 15-inch MacBook Pro using a strong yet removable and reusable adhesive, forms a kickstand which puts your Mac at an elevated typing and viewing angle much like the small flip-out legs behind most keyboards.

The Kickflip is a relatively thin rubberized piece of plastic with a hinge mechanism that sticks to the bottom side of the laptop and stays flat until you flip it out to its standing position when you need elevated support making it slightly more comfortable and ergonomic to type on the keyboard. You can get Bluelounge's Kickflip right now for $18, and in two different sizes that fit the 13-inch or the 15-inch MacBook Pro (Retina and non-Retina models). Unfortunately, the Kickflip MacBook Air or other laptop models.

ChargeAll, The First Portable Battery Pack With An AC Outlet

This is ChargeAll, and it claims to be the world's first and smallest portable battery pack to have an AC power outlet built-in. Unlike traditional backup batteries, this one features a full sized AC power outlet in addition to a regular old USB charging port. Available in two capacities: one with a 12,000mAh internal rechargeable lithium battery and a larger ChargeAll battery (still portable) with a 18,000mAh capacity capable of recharging any device that requires up to 85W of power like a MacBook Pro. In fact, the people behind the ChargeAll battery say that its 12,000mAh portable battery can fully recharge a MacBook Pro two times over, while the larger battery can triple that amount which sounds like an impressive claim to fame to say the least.

The Amazon Fire Phone, A Pocketable Kindle Fire That Makes Calls

From this day forward Amazon will no longer be known as the giant online retailer that also makes tablets and Kindles, but also as a company that makes smartphones. That’s right, Amazon has revealed its new smartphone, the Fire Phone. It’s Amazon’s first and only flagship smartphone to be designed by the company itself using materials like a rubberized frame, stainless steel reinforcement and aluminum buttons. Oh, and it only comes in black. Unfortunately for Amazon's little design boasting, the Fire Phone looks like an entry-level, basic smartphone instead of a premium flagship device.

The Fire Phone is 0.35-inches thick (compared to the 0.30-inch iPhone 5s and 0.34-inch Nexus 5), primarily made from plastic and is unexpectedly expensive, albeit isn’t lacking when it comes to features and specs. Prices start at $200 for a 32GB Fire Phone with a two year contract on AT&T, or $650 unlocked. The Fire Phone features an ultra-bright, Gorilla Glass 3-protected 4.7-inch IPS LCD HD display with the resolution of 1280x720 (315ppi), which Amazon says is the right size for one-handed use. A Gorilla Glass 3 panel can also be found covering the back of the Fire Phone which is surrounded by a rubberized plastic frame similar to the Nexus 4.
