Portable Power: Brunton

We’ve all been there. You’re nine hours into a serious road trip and you’re trying to instagram that perfect sunset when your phone dies. Rather than sitting in the car waiting for that little charger to get you a little boost, it’s time to upgrade your portable power game. We took a few of the power accessories from Brunton on our spring road trips and didn’t miss a single country road turn from a GPS drained battery.

Out on the trail you won’t find a power outlet, but you’ll almost always have sunlight. The Explorer solar panels pump out enough current to power any USB or handheld device from phones to your GoPro. It also connects to any Brunton battery pack, letting your top off back in basecamp after the sun goes down. Every size is ruggedized for use in serious backcountry situations, and they conveniently fold up to take up very little space in your pack.

Power Knife
A broken lightning or USB connector can be a day ruiner. Skip the cables and add a little protection with the Power Knife. Featuring lightning, Apple 30-pin, and mini USB, the Power Knife is indispensable from your daily commute to outdoors excursions. It’s covered by Brunton’s U-Proof no questions warranty, so if you actually manage to break it (color us impressed if you do) they’ll get you a replacement for free.

Torpedo 2600
Featuring 2600mAh – enough to charge a typical smartphone twice – the Torpedo 2600 is the perfect accessory for travelers on the go. It can be charged with either a DC car charger socket or through a micro USB connector and solar panel. The on board lithium battery charges faster and holds its charge through at least one thousand charges. We were able to keep our GoPros, phone, and GPS topped off on every day trip.

Wordle game #196 solved in 4 guesses

The Wordle app’s popularity has cratered since The New York Times (NYT) acquired the app, but the latter is only one possible reason for the former’s fall.

Wordle’s plunge from late January highs are down almost 1000% in July. An average of 350,000 users posting game results to Twitter in the first month of the year. Those tweets are barely breaking 40,000 posts in July. Gaming function, management missteps, seasonal changes, knockoff apps, paywall rumors, and the essential nature of the phrase "gone viral" all factor into the decline. Despite the dive, Wordle’s January acquisition has been a success for NYT.  According to first quarter earnings, subscriptions to app games are driving growth for the media giant.
