PADACS ENDURO MINI

Built like a tank, with enough juice to fly from JFK to Adelaide

While Apple touts 10-hour battery life for the iPad mini, there are times when extra juice can really save the day. iOS accessory maker PADACS apparently thought so, too, and decided to build an entire case around this need.

The result is the Enduro Mini for iPad mini, which stitches an 8000mAh Li-ion battery pack into the front cover of an attractive polyurethane case available in your choice of black, pink, or blue. The manufacturer claims the exterior is scratch-resistant, although we did manage to scuff it

PACKED

Stash your stuff in these stylishly engineered bags from Thule.

These are the pogiest’s pieces of man-bag we’ve seen in a while. And we can’t just say “bag” because Cosmopolitan and Preview magazine already own the rights to the word and any discussion of it.

This is a man-bag, and Thule (pronounced “thu-la,” or “tool,” whichever feels better on your tongue), the Swedish brand best known for their car racks, has launched a line of lifestyle bags that defines urban swag. Manly (can’t emphasize this enough), neutral- colored, and obviously winning big in the tibay department, this new line of

Pace quickens on US base closures

A NEW LIST of US military installations targeted for closure was revealed on March 12, comprising 31 major sites and 40 other installations. Operations at another 94 sites could be realigned or curtailed. Plans to close an additional 29 overseas bases were also announced.

These reductions will save about $3.1 billion from the year 2000. However, Defence Secretary Les Aspin indicated that this still falls short of planned reductions in defence budgets and a further round of more drastic cuts can be expected. The cuts would also see the loss of 57,000 civilian and 24,000 military jobs. Overseas closures are

КОМПРОМИССЫ? НЕ ДОЖДЕТЕСЬ!

CD-тюнер имеет два гнезда сетевого кабеля — для блоков питания цифровых и аналоговых цепей соответственно.

Цифровая революция, о которой так долго и упорно твердили аудиофилы, практически вытеснила CD-проигрыватель из бюджетного и даже бизнес-сегмента. Однако в элитном клубе High-End-аппаратов он свой человек — если обладает множеством дополнительных талантов, родословной от солидной фирмы (например, германской Т+А) и надежным компаньоном в виде высококлассного стереоусилителя.

ТЕКСТ Вячеслав Саввов

Расписывая в интернете собственные достижения, производители обычно не жалеют красок. Слова «лучший» и «непревзойденный» встречаются так часто, что их перестаешь воспринимать всерьез. Представители Т+А избрали другой путь. Автобиографию они озаглавили «Eigentlich sind wir

Lilliput 663/0/P

Designed for DSLR movie makers, Liiliput’s upgraded 7in field monitor can also be a big-screen companion for tripod-using stills photographers. Damien Demolder tests it.

MANUFACTURERS have become very good at finding the space for large LCD screens on the backs of their cameras, but even the biggest in use on a standard DSLR is only about 3in across. Although this size allows some checking, it isn’t until we view via a laptop or desktop computer that we can feel confident everything is as it should be. If it is up to the job, this Lilliput screen offers photographers the chance
