Of course, with the range of models available in stores, the quality level can vary from item to item.Whether you travel regularly for your job or simply enjoy heading out on the occasional road trip, these best iPhone car chargers come highly recommended. Keep in mind that Apple now uses two types of cabling for charging: the Lightening Connector for iPhone 5 series, iPod Touch 7th generation as well as the 4th generation iPad, iPad Air, iPad Mini, iPad Mini w/Retina Display and then of course the 30 Pin Connector for older devices. These chargers were chosen for their reliability, broad compatibility with iPhones and whenever possible, MFi certification, or Apple's iPhone certification for third party hardware.

  • When it comes to Bluetooth headsets, fans of hands-free mobile or VOIP (voice over internet protocol) have a lot of choices. They range from headsets priced at well over $100 to much more affordable choices for $20 or $30. But like many things in life, a $130 headset doesn't always mean it's better than a cheaper headset and a cheap headset may cause more problems than its worth. Whether your needs are a headset that can be used by your laptop and your mobile device, or a headset that allows you to carry on a clear conversation, there's a Bluetooth headset for you.

  • With the purchase of a smartphone, the next accessory for most new owners is a new case. Samsung Galaxy S3 owners are no exception; with the popularity of the device, there's no lack of companies and manufacturers looking to protect the smartphone in various degrees of plastic, silicone, and other layers of protection. Cases range from those that can protect against many of the elements and those with the worst case of butterfingers, to cases that provide a minimal amount of protection. Owners should evaluate what their needs in a case are, or they'll find themselves with too much or too little of a case.

  • For most iPhone owners, a case isn't just an accessory — it's a must-have item. For all the time and effort Apple puts into the design and engineering of its phones, the fact is that real life, with all of its scrapes, bumps, and accidents, is enough to turn a once-pristine iPhone into a dented, gouged, and scarred piece of technology very quickly. It may continue to function, but additional protection is something most owners equate with peace of mind. iPhone cases come in a variety of styles, from multiple layers of security that isolate the phone from the outside world to thin shells that provides only minor protection. Others not only provide a shell against the environment, but address the Achilles' heel of all modern electronics - battery life.
