When you are on the move, whether for work, study, or play, there is little worse than running out of juice for your mobile devices. A useful gift is a juice bank, such as the Anker PowerCore 10000, which can be thrown into a bag or suitcase and pulled out when needed to give your smartphone or tablet power on the go.
Aside from checking out the newest pro-level gear in areas like DJing, speakers, and headphones, there were two categories that caught my attention at NAMM. They were products that tackled music education and gadgets that were third-party add-ons for instruments and hardware people already own.
