Check out what's new with TYLT, and hear what everyone has to say about it!
Backpacks have always been a source of frustration for me when carrying around my laptop and the various tools I need with me throughout my day. I don’t carry a ton with me at any given moment, but finding a bag that can carry and handle everything has been difficult.
Enter Tylt’s new Energi Pro Backpack. While not only being incredibly spacious, Tylt’s new backpack’s attention grabber is the fact that it includes an impressively large battery in the bag. Carrying everything you lug around is not only a breeze with the Energi Pro Backpack, but charging everything while you do so is god-send.
At first glance, the Energi Pro Power Backpack looks like a bulky traveler’s bag. Akin to something an international traveler might be wearing on a long journey, its square design stands out against other backpacks, and immediately begs the question, “_Why_ is that bag so big?” Once I got my hands on Tylt’s latest backpack, though, it all made sense.
Tylt’s bag is spacious. I mean, really spacious. Not only is it big enough to carry everything you need in your bag during travels, its compartments are also built in a way to properly carry everything you have. The square design allows it to sit-up right without support, meaning there’s no more worrying about having to lean it on something when placed on the floor. The bag will just sit where you leave it.
The large interior design gave me more than enough room to carry my 2010 15” MacBook Pro, my iPad 4th Generation, my wallet, headphones, and multiple notebooks. That didn’t even fill a third of the bag. I’ve never had a bag successfully organize all my gear to the degree that I actually began wondering, “What else can I fit in here?” The Energi Pro Backpack is also tough. The sleek gray color comes courtesy of the water-resistant weather-safe design. I feel safe putting my electronics in here knowing that the water won’t penetrate the cloth and collect, thus soaking through like my previous bags did.
The large compartment to strap down the laptop is not only TSA-friendly, it also provides a large amount of padding to help protect the investment you set in there. It was strange at first sliding my MacBook into its own separate compartment without any room for anything else, but all the other various compartments quickly made up for that.
Without a doubt my favorite feature of the bag is the included battery. While anyone can buy a large capacity battery and throw it into their bag, the Energi Pro makes the battery and charging experience a full on feature of the bag. The battery that comes with the Energi Pro isn’t actually embedded into the bag, like I originally thought, and with good reason too. It’s actually stored away in its own separate compartment on the side. This makes it easy to remove and recharge without having to dig through the other belongings. Being able to remove the battery to charge it separately, either in a wall or computer, makes it much less awkward when carrying the bag around for other necessities.
While testing the bag, I used it to charge up my girlfriend’s and my own iPhone a few times over. The battery didn’t even go down one notch on its 4-level LED charge indication thanks to its 20,100 mAh battery. Although I don’t have a MacBook that can take advantage of it, I love that Tylt included a Type-C USB output. Not only could I charge a 12-inch MacBook if I had it, but any number of USB Type-C devices that have been making their way to the market.
When I worked at the Apple retail store a few years ago the Visuals team, which was responsible for putting products out onto the floor, was obsessed with cable management. Apple always wanted to make sure that the cables that didn’t need to be visible to customers, weren’t. This habit stuck with me, and I “cable manage” every and any cables I come across. The Tylt Energi Pro Backpack is an organizer’s dream including 11 different routing pockets and routing straps that allow you to route all the cables you need from the included battery to wherever your devices are stored within the bag.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t spend some time also talking about how comfortable this backpack is. With every backpack I have ever bought, I’ve always faced some sort of back ache or shoulder strap discomfort. I could always feel the straps tug away at my arms and slide around and after a few hours of walking around the city with it on, there was never anything I wanted to do more than to just take it off. With the Energi Pro, none of those ideas even came to mind. I loaded up the bag, filled it with everything I needed and was on my way without worry of discomfort. I spent a day walking around NYC with it strapped to me, and didn’t feel any pain or annoyances where I normally would. In fact, it just felt like a secure (obviously more weighted down) jacket I was wearing. Not one for buckles on backpacks that come across the chest, I opted to use them with this bag and felt the difference even further.
I’ll be taking an international trip in the coming weeks, and without a doubt I’ll be traveling with the Energi Pro Backpack. The peace of mind in taking a 16-hour trip and having multiple battery charges available at my disposal will make the entire trip so much relaxed. The ability to carry everything I need, and more, will make it even better.Original Article: https://9to5mac.com/2016/10/06/indiegogo-tylt-energi-pro-backpack-traveling-nomads-solution/

I've been using the Tylt Ribbn for a few weeks now and, as USB car chargers go, it's pretty awesome. The Ribbn is a 4.8A 12-volt car charger for smartphones that integrates a 3-foot long (1m) flat ribbon cable. At the end of the cable is either a micro-USB connection or an Apple Lightning connector.
I especially like that the flat cable doesn't get tangled and knotted in my backpack when transporting it and my phone from car to car. Other colors are available (black, yellow and blue), but I also like that my example's eye-searingly bright red makes it easy to spot in my bag and in the car. There is little chance that I'd lose it in a test car or leave it on my desk when heading to the garage. It also color-matched almost perfectly with my equally gaudy red LG Nexus 5. (Despite appearing to be orange in the pictures accompanying this article, the Ribbn -- and my phone -- really are red.)
Being an integrated plug and cable combo, I find the Ribbn is easy to carry around and feels more robust than a separate USB charger and cable. I can be more careless about chucking the rubberized Ribbn into my bag with the rest of my junk without fear of bending a plug.
The flat cable also fits through into tighter spots than a similarly robust round cable would. The Ribbn shined when the host car's charging point was under the center console armrest and needed to snake out of a closed compartment door. With 3 feet of cable, there is usually enough slack to reach wherever I need it to.
The 4.8-amp charging circuitry and second USB port boast enough juice to quickly charge my smartphone and another device, meaning that I'd more often arrive at my destination with a full battery. I could even quickly charge a pair of tablets if I wanted to.
On the other hand, 3 feet of flat and thick ribbon cable can be unwieldy when you only need it to span a short distance, which can make cable management tricky for some drivers. For me, the gaudy red hue served as a reminder to grab the cable at the end of every trip, but if left in the car the color could attract the attention of thieves. Drivers who prefer to leave the cable in their car between trips may prefer the darker black or blue colors.
The $39.99 MSRP for the micro-USB model is pretty pricey for a car charger and cable -- even a good one. $49.99 for the Lightning model is even harder to swallow. (UK and Australian pricing was unavailable at time of publication.) As USB car chargers go, the Tylt Ribbn is remarkably well made; it justifies its high cost of entry with a premium feel and robust construction. However, for most drivers, a USB car charger is not a premium purchase and the Ribbn is a tough sell when a similar 4.8A dual-USB charging setup (with standard round cables in you choice of length) from Anker or Aukey, for example, will only run you about $12 to $15 online.Original Article: https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/auto/tylt-ribbn-micro-usb/preview/
