USB has made it convenient to charge mobile devices, since most people also have access to a computer with an available port. But as the devices add up, those ports become scarce.

Keeping fully charged is a challenge while traveling, since most people leave their bulky systems at home. This is where a portable USB charge adapter comes in very handy.

People love their portable electronics, and can't get escape without their phone, tablet, and digital multimedia devices in tow. We take our ebook readers with us everywhere, carry a Bluetooth wireless headset for calls on the road, and occasionally find time to take pictures with the digital camera. All of these devices require power, and when you're away from home it's hard to keep batteries charged during long trips or after prolonged use. Every vehicle has a 12V cigarette lighter receptacle, but most lack USB power outlets. Arctic Cooling offers the Dual USB Car Charger (model PSAEQ-AC01901-BL) to keep your devices working while on the road, with two USB ports and the ability to fast-charge at up to 2.1 amps of power.

Featured Reviews: Accessories

Have you ever turned your computer off, and noticed suddenly, just how quiet the room became? It is pretty amazing how loud those fans are when you compare their humming to pure silence.

And, in some cases, the enthusiast, has purposely placed additional fans inside the case in order to wring out every last ounce of air overclocking they can get. But eventually, the incessant whine of the fans begins to bother, yes, even annoy. It is at that point, when having a fan controller becomes particularly useful. NZXT has released the Sentry Mix Fan Controller.
