But useful!
Buttons for PALS or belt are too loose and unbutton too easily, one would think something fairly tactical/work related would be more solid. Other then that aspect (&the fact that its not made in USA) its not bad. Holds quite a bit of stuff, well even my new LG G5 fits and it’s a pretty big phone.

When you’re going on a long journey and your passengers are using their phones/tablets, it can be helpful to be able to charge them en-route. However, with a charging port popped into 12V DC socket (or 24V if you’re in a larger vehicle), if you have more than one passenger it can lead to arguments over whose gadget is more in need of a boost. The Olixar Triple USB Super Fast Car Charger can eliminate those car-journey squabbles. It comes with three USB ports – including two that are strong enough to charge tablets (2.1amps each) – the other is a 1 amp port for Smartphones. It’s worth noting the 1 amp port is on top (with the two 2.1 amp ports sitting below) as it’s not clear on the actual device.

The Switch consists of a tablet with a 6.2-inch screen with slots for attaching Nintendo’s Joy-Con controllers on either side, turning it into a handheld video game machine. But when you’re at home, you can slide the slate into a dock that hooks up to your TV and play it like a traditional console. That “play anywhere, anytime” approach, combined with a stellar games roster, from the recently launched Super Mario Odyssey to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, makes the Switch a true knockout.
What makes it cool: Gesture control is not new. Facial recognition is not new. But this startup uses artificial intelligence to extrapolate models of your facial landscape, creating an array of expressions. It’s a smile to unlock feature.
