Upgrading to the iPhone 7 and lack wireless headphones? Say hello to your new reality. Belkin appears to be the first accessory maker with a Lightning dongle that lets you attach a pair of Lightning connector headphones and a charging cable at the same time. Sigh.
For whatever reason, Nintendo decided not to include a charger with its new 3DS handheld console. You absurdly have to buy one separately, or you could just spend $8 on this new adapter that lets you use your iPhone or iPad’s Lightning charging cable instead.
I just came back from a two-week vacation in Europe. I took loads of gadgets. How did I keep them charged? Why, an unwieldy gadget cornucopia consisting of two AC splitters, a USB wall wart, and an external battery for topping up on the go. If only I’d had the Belkin Travel Rockstar, I could have lightened my load.
The Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver is one of the hidden gems of PC gaming—it lets you play loads of Windows PC games from the couch with controllers you already own. This fall, a $25 dongle will let you do the same with your Xbox One gamepads, too!
If those nesting USB plugs look familiar, you've been reading Gizmodo for a long time. Back in 2010, the stackable USB plug wasn't much more than a big-spoon/little-spoon concept, but now it's almost real—by which I mean it's on Kickstarter.
Next week, it's very likely we'll see a fresh round of MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs. They'll be a little faster, and maybe a little prettier. But it's unlikely that any new addition to Apple's laptops will be as awesome as MagSafe. Seven years after Apple made the best laptop charger on the planet, no one else has…
Have an old iPod dock lying around? It's not entirely useless with your iPhone 5 and its new lightning connector. All you need is a cheap Bluetooth adapter and you're back in business.
That overpriced, locked down, long-delayed 30-pin-to-lighting adapter is finally shipping. Sorry, still $30. [MacRumors]
We recently reviewed AViiQ's line of ribbon-style USB adapter cables, but found that what made them most unique—their flat cable design—also made them difficult to use. So we couldn't recommend the cables, but maybe the convenience of this new triple-headed all-in-one design might make this cable worth carrying.
If you're not blown away by the selection of lenses available for your Sony NEX or Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera, Kipon has just announced its own adapter that lets photographers use older Canon EF mount lenses, complete with electronic aperture control.
Sure, maybe the iPad wasn't meant to be used with a stylus but having options is always a good thing, right? Sadly this stylus adapter is only a Kickstarter project for the time being but it promises to turn Sharpies, Bic or Pilot pens into a full fledged, tablet inputting beast. If the project raises enough money,…
Power bricks! They're cumbersome. They're heavy. They're ugly. Until the Cooler Master USNA 95 walks into your life, a sleek 95W power adapter that looks to be just a bit bigger a deck of cards. UPDATED:
Got a new Mac and finding yourself struggling to find a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter that supports video and audio output? No worries. The Kanex iAdapt should have you covered.
I really do hate all these cables, and I will keep on hating them until all my charging and syncing happens over the very air I breathe. Until then, I guess these ice cream sandwich cables will keep me satisfied.
GuitarBud is a $29 adapter that allows you to plug a guitar right into an iPhone. How is that useful? Well if I ever learned to play that guitar in my closet, I could:
The dream of putting HDMI content (Blu-ray player, Xbox 360, PS3 or even another computer) into a 27-inch iMac has FINALLY come true. Kanex, who have done MDP to HDMI adapters, now goes the other way with the upcoming accessory.
The iPad really is a giant iPhone—so much so that if you want to get a laptop-like experience out of it, you'll need adapters to change the typical 30-pin connector into USB, SD, or AC power. Correction:
The capable Atlona HDAiR Wireless USB-to-VGA/HDMI Adapter was missing one key ingredient when it launched earlier this year: Audio. That's been fixed, thanks to this latest refresh.
