The Jeda USB Hub is one of the best accessories available for the Tesla Model 3. A simple device, it turns the two USB ports in the center console into five USB ports — three USB-A ports and two USB-C ports.

The added connectivity is nice by itself, as it allows you to connect more accessories to the Model 3 via the vehicle’s center console. But it’s the hidden compartment that allows you to neatly tuck away an SSD or USB flash drive that makes the Jeda USB Hub special.

The Jeda Wireless Pad is a just-released wireless charging option for the Tesla Model 3. Like the Nomad Wireless Charger that I reviewed last year, the Jeda Wireless Pad is Qi-enabled, meaning it can charge both iPhones and Android phones that comply with the Qi wireless charging standard.

As someone who’s been using the Nomad Wireless Charger for the last four months, I was keen on seeing how Jeda’s latest interpretation of wireless charger compared. How does it stack up? Watch our hands-on video review for the details.  expand full story

Hands-on for winter: Installing official Tesla Model 3 all-weather floor mats [Video]

Tesla’s official Model 3 all-weather floor mats arrived in the office last week, and with winter fast approaching, I was excited to unbox and install them. The Model 3 all-weather floor mats, which are produced by WeatherTech, help you to prepare your vehicle for the harsh winter months ahead, all while remaining good looking. But temper your expectations, because these mats may not provide the protection you expect. Watch our hands-on video walk through for more details.

With a car as forward thinking as the Model 3, I admit that it’s a bit disappointing that Tesla didn’t opt for wireless smartphone charging, or at least make a wireless charger for Tesla Model 3 an option in the design studio. As Tesla makes progress with Model 3 deliveries and eventually ushers in the standard range battery option, it’ll hopefully begin addressing smaller wants like this.

Until then, there are wireless charging solutions made available by third-parties. One of the most popular options, the Nomad Wireless Charger for Tesla Model 3, recently landed in the office. Nomad, which is known for its Horween Leather-based iPhone cases and iPhone accessories, saw an excellent opportunity to fill the needs of Model 3 owners. The result is a wireless charging pad that could easily pass as being a native part of the Model 3. Watch our hands-on video as we discuss the ins and outs of Nomad’s wireless charging solution. expand full story

EGO Power Plus Lawn mower review

I like the idea of doing lawn work. Through all of the sweat and heat, there’s a deep sense of satisfaction once the job is completed. I think I enjoy it primarily because it’s the antithesis of my daily routine as a tech blogger.

Sadly, there are some things that make it hard to enjoy the traditional lawn care routine. The putrid smell of gasoline, the allergies, dealing with mowers that won’t start, the deafening noise, the numbing vibrations of the handle, running out of gas, etc.

The very idea of an alternative-powered lawn mower always appealed to me, but their shortcomings were too much for me to seriously consider one…until now. expand full story
