Tech guru Vaughn Davis joined Ali Mau to talk about the best pieces of tech in shops this summer.


Apple launches its first ever clip-on iPhone battery.

Vaughn says, it costs $160, it feels rubbery and doesn’t slide in and out of your pocket easily.


Turn your iPad into something useful.

Vaughn says iPad keyboards are usually rubbish but these new ones from Brydge aren’t.

It’s solid metal and makes the whole thing look and feel like a little Macbook, it’s a backlit proper keyboard and the bigger models have speakers.

It costs about $200 from usual retailers.


Charge your devices with fire.

Biotite solid fuel camping stove cooks your food and charges your phone

Fire heats a thermoelectric generator; this makes electricity that drives a fan to make the fire super-efficient – everything burns and almost no smoke.

That means lunch or coffee heats quicker and the surplus electricity charges your phone via USB
