MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Backpack, Briefcase, Tote or iPhone Case From Hex

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Hex to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Hex bag or iPhone case. Hex makes a whole range of products, including multiple totes, backpacks, and bags with simple designs and clean lines.

Hex's 10.8L Terra Expandable Laptop Briefcase, for example, has a no-frills, modern design that offers a wealth of storage space. There's a padded laptop slot that can accommodate up to a 15-inch laptop, an interior gear pocket, an external tablet pocket, two external gear pockets, and a rear document pocket, so it can fit pretty much all the gear you might need.


Priced at $139.95, it comes with backpack straps that can be tucked away so when it's packed full you can wear it like a backpack, and there's also a detachable shoulder strap so it can be worn in a more traditional way. The Terra is made from a polyester material treated for water resistance, so it can hold up to a bit of rain.

Hex's Nero Expandable Laptop Briefcase, also priced at $139.95, is pretty much identical to the Terra with all of the same features and pockets, but it is made from a black polyester material that's also resistant to rain and rips.


Hex also makes affordable backpacks, including the Echelon Signal Backpack, which is priced at $89.95. The Echelon backpack holds 17.25L, so it's a good size without being too large, and it can accommodate a 13 to 15-inch laptop in the padded laptop compartment.


It's made from a gray polyester material that's simple, attractive, and water resistant, and there's a big front pocket for a tablet. A pocket at the top keeps sunglasses safe, and inside, there's a big interior pocket and organized sections for pens, keys, and cards.

Hex's 24.9L Supply Laptop Tote, priced at $99.95, is another option for carrying a laptop. It can hold a 13 to 15-inch machine in the padded storage compartment, and for other items, there's a big main zippered compartment and a padded tablet compartment.


At the front, there's a snap pocket that can hold a phone, and two rear snap pockets for change and keys. It's made of a waxed canvas treated for water resistance, and it features coated canvas accents and leather zipper pulls.

To go along with its lineup of bags, Hex has iPhone cases available. There are folio cases and standard cases, like the Stingray Leather Shield Wallet.


The Stingray, priced at $44.95, is made from a textured leather material with a polycarbonate shell that keeps the iPhone safe from bumps and drops. There's a built-in wallet feature with 2 RFID blocking card slots and a raised front bezel that protects your screen.

We have one of each of the above listed products from Hex to give away to MacRumors readers. The first winner picked will receive the Terra briefcase, the second will get the Nero briefcase, the third will get the Echelon backpack, the fourth will get the Supply Laptop Tote, and the fifth will get the Stingray iPhone Case.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win Custom Carbon Fiber AirPods From Hadoro

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with French designer brand Hadoro to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a set of custom carbon fiber AirPods.

For those not familiar with Hadoro, it's a site that makes high-end custom iPhones, AirPods, and iPhone cases from luxury materials. Pricing on these custom devices ranges from 400 euros to over 5000 euros, so they're not for everyone, but Hadoro certainly has some unique designs you won't see anywhere else.


Hadoro's custom carbon fiber AirPods will appeal to anyone who is hoping Apple will release a future version of the AirPods in black. Hadoro's AirPods, priced at 650 euros, use carbon fiber, known for being ultra strong and ultra light.


To create the carbon fiber AirPods, Hadoro engineers disassemble the original AirPods case while keeping all of the interior components intact. New assembly parts for the case are meticulously carved from three solid blocks of carbon fiber.


Because Hadoro is creating its own shell for the AirPods case, it features a unique stepped look at the top and bottom with milled notches and an overall elliptical cylinder shape. A subtle "H" for Hadoro is carved into the front.


Hadoro designed the AirPods case to have a unique graphite finish with a visible fiber weave pattern and a matte surface, while the actual AirPods inside are coated with a deep black scratch-resistant soft-touch finish.


When the creation process is finished, Hadoro's engineers extensively test the AirPods to make sure full functionality is intact before sending the custom earbuds off to customers. All AirPods features, including the quick pairing, automatic ear detection, and gesture support remain functional, and the Lightning port, pairing button, and hinge all work as normal.


We have one set of Hadoro's carbon fiber AirPods to give away to a MacRumors reader. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, following us on Instagram, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Gesture-Based ‘Tap’ Keyboard That You Wear on Your Hand

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Tap to give MacRumors readers a chance to win one of the company's wearable keyboard setups, which Tap believes will be the keyboard of the future.


Priced at $199, the Tap is a futuristic keyboard that turns your fingers into the keys, allowing you to type letters, numbers, and symbols with different finger tap combinations.


Tap features a series of rings with built-in sensors, with the rings designed to fit over your thumb and each finger to detect your tap gestures. The rings are adjustable and can fit a wide range of hand sizes, and with the sensors, you can essentially use the Tap Keyboard anywhere you are.


Each letter of the alphabet is a different tap. To create an "A," for example you tap your thumb in a downwards motion onto a desk or flat surface. A tap of the index finger makes an "E," while to create a "K," you tap your thumb and ring finger downwards at the same time. To make a "B," you tap your pinky and index finger at the same time.


Learning to use the Tap Keyboard takes just a few days, but because it's an entirely new way of typing, mastering it can take some time. We reviewed the Tap last year and were able to learn the taps in about a week practicing 30 minutes per day.


Tap recently came out with new software that's designed to help you learn faster than ever. The TapAcademy, one of the Tap apps available from the App Store, is a 30-day course that's used for 10 minutes a day to memorize the letters, numbers, and symbols you need to use the Tap as a keyboard replacement for iOS devices, Macs, and more.


By completing TapAcademy, Tap users can greatly improve their typing speeds. According to Tap, its current regular Tap users type at an average of 40 words per minute, while some can type up to 70 words, which is impressive for a wearable keyboard with an entirely new input method. TapAcademy uses both games and daily exercises to improve typing speeds, and the company has a money back guarantee. After a Tap purchase, customers who are unable to reach 30 words per minute after finishing TapAcademy can return the product and get their money back.


Tap is a Bluetooth keyboard so it works with all of your Bluetooth enabled devices like any other keyboard. It also has a built-in mouse replacement feature that lets you use your thumb as a mouse for navigation purposes.

There are a selection of games that use the Tap keyboard as an input method, and Tap is fully customizable so you can create different Tap Maps for various games and use cases.


We have two of the Tap Keyboards to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, following us on Instagram, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Luna Display Adapter for Turning Your iPad Into a Second Screen

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Astropad to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Luna Display adapter. The Luna Display is a handy little dongle that's designed to turn your iPad into a second screen for your Mac.


You may be familiar with the Astropad software, which mirrors the Mac's display to an iPad, but the Luna Display extends the Mac's display to the iPad instead of mirroring it for full second screen functionality.


Using Mini DisplayPort or USB-C, the Luna Display plugs right into your Mac and then works with the iPad using the Luna Display software for Mac and iPad. Setup takes just a few seconds and the device works over a Wi-Fi connection.


At $80, the Luna Display is an affordable option for those who want a second portable display for the Mac that's perfect for use both at home and when on the go. The connection between the two devices is seamless with little to no lag depending on your connection.


Luna Display works with any modern iPad, dating back to the iPad 2, along with the iPad mini and the iPad Pro. Newer iPads will perform better, of course, due to the faster hardware. You can also use the Luna Display with any 2012 or later Mac.


We've even set up an iPad Pro as a display for a Mac mini using the Luna Display, as seen in our video below, and it worked well.


You can buy the Luna Display from the Luna Display website, and we also have five of them to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win our giveaway, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Jackery Portable Power Station Explorer 240

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Jackery to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Jackery Portable Power Station Generator 240, which offers 240Wh (67000mAh) of power for camping, emergencies, and more.

Jackery makes a wide range of battery packs and portable power stations in different sizes, and the Power Station 240 is one of its largest.


Priced at $250, the Power Station 240 is ideal to have on hand for power outages, and it's also useful for camping, RV use, and other activities where you need a lot of portable power.


There's an AC outlet, a car port, and two 2.4A USB-A outputs so you can charge up multiple devices at once. According to Jackery, it can charge a smartphone 18 times, an iPad Pro 6 times, a laptop up to 4 times, and a GoPro 40 times.


Despite the power it's packing, the Power Station 240 is portable, measuring in at nine inches tall, seven and a half inches wide, and 5 inches deep. It weighs 6.8 pounds and has a handle at the top to make it easy to carry.


There's an LCD display at the front that lets you know how much charge is left, and a built-in LED flashlight is included for when the power is out.


There are multiple ways to recharge the Jackery 240, including using a 50W Jackery solar panel (needs to be purchased separately), a carport, or an AC wall outlet. It takes approximately eight hours to recharge via the standard methods, or 10 hours with the add-on solar panel.


We have two of the Jackery Portable Power Station Explorer 240s to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win our giveaway, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a UV iPhone Sanitizer From PhoneSoap

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with PhoneSoap to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a PhoneSoap 3 Smartphone UV Sanitizer.


As the name suggests, the PhoneSoap is designed to eliminate all of the nasty germs on your iPhone using a UV light. Most of us take our phones everywhere, including places rich with bacteria and other little microbes.


PhoneSoap says that its UV sanitizer kills 99.99 percent of all germs, and in addition to working on your iPhone, it will sanitize anything that fits inside. It's even able to kill cold and flu viruses.


All you need to do is open up the PhoneSoap, tuck your iPhone inside, and leave it there at night or for just a few minutes at a time. It doesn't take long to eliminate germs with a UV light, and the PhoneSoap will shut off automatically after 10 minutes so you don't need to worry about overheating or damage to your devices.


There are UV lightbulbs on both the top and bottom of the PhoneSoap to sanitize both sides of an iPhone at once, and the design is meant to get the light to tiny crevices that liquids don't reach.


The PhoneSoap, priced at $60, is multipurpose, so while it's sanitizing your phone with UV light, it can also charge it thanks to two ports (USB-C and USB-A) on the side. It is big enough to fit all iPhone models, and it also works with credit cards, keys, money, and more.


We have 10 of the PhoneSoaps to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win our giveaway, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a BentoStack Charge for Organizing and Charging Your Devices

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Function 101 to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win one of the company's new BentoStack Charge accessory organizers.

We've covered the handy BentoStack accessory organizers before, but this new version, the Charge, does even more. In addition to keeping all of your cords, cables, and odds and ends organized, it includes a 5,000 mAh power bank and wireless charging pad.


The BentoStack Charge, priced at $99.95 and available in three colors, features multiple layers, which can be used together all at once when at home, or separately when traveling if you only need to take a few things with you. The top layer is the power bank, which also doubles as a Qi wireless charging pad for Apple's latest iPhones.


There's a USB-C port built into the charger for keeping it powered (USB-C to USB-A cable included), and an extra USB-A port for charging a second device. With the BentoStack Charge on your desk, you can plug it into a USB-C cable and place your iPhone on top for a convenient charging location that doubles as storage.


Underneath the cover, there's a slot to hold an Apple Pencil (which also doubles as an iPhone stand), and below that, there's a main compartment with a set of dividers for holding things like cables, AirPods, power adapters, and more.


Below the first main compartment, there's a divider that's able to hold extra Apple Watch bands, and underneath that, you'll find a second main compartment with dividers for holding whatever else you need to store.

All of the dividers within the compartments are adjustable so you can customize the BentoStack Charge to fit your needs, and a thick band holds it all together, much like a traditional bento box.


The BentoStack Charge can be used at home to keep all of your important gear together, but it's also a useful way to make sure everything stays organized while traveling, too. The original BentoStack was useful, but the version with the wireless charger and power bank adds even more versatility.


We have five of the BentoStack Charge organizers to give away, and Function 101 is including an extra top piece so you can use it with or without the wireless charging component.

We also have a discount code for the first 50 U.S. MacRumors readers who want to order a BentoStack charge. Use the code RUMORS30 when checking out on the website to get 30 percent off and $10 shipping.

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Mous to give MacRumors readers a chance to win an iPhone case and an iPhone case accessory from the company's Limitless 2.0 product line.

Priced from $39.99 to $59.99, the Limitless 2.0 cases feature a protective shell made from a high impact "AiroShock" material, TPU, and Polycarbonate. The AiroShock interior of the case is outfitted with thousands of micro air pockets that are designed to act like a spring in the event of a fall, minimizing the impact damage.


Each case features a rear panel made from unique materials, with carbon fiber, walnut, leather, bamboo, and shell available as options.

The Limitless 2.0 cases are designed to be rigid and fit tightly onto the iPhone, which offers better protection against drops that end up with the phone face down.


In addition to these protective features, the Limitless iPhone cases can be expanded with add-on accessories. Each case has little magnets inside that work with modular accessories also available from Mous.


There are a number of available add-on options that expand the functionality of the Mous cases. Vent Mounts and Flex Mounts, for example, let you position a mount anywhere that you might need it, while a magnetic Card Wallet provides a way to store your credit cards and ID.


There's even an add-on Flip Wallet with more storage space and a folio-style cover for the iPhone, and a Wall Mount that lets you stick your iPhone anywhere. Accessories range in price from $20 to $25.


Despite the magnets included for accessories, Mous cases continue to support Qi-based wireless charging. All of Mous' cases also ship with a free triple-layered screen protector that also offers additional iPhone protection.

Limitless 2.0 cases are available for the iPhone 6, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8 along with Plus models, and there are versions for the newest iPhones, including the iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.


We have 10 of the Mous cases to give away to MacRumors readers, and each one will come with an accessory of the winner's choice.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a USB-C Mobile Pro Hub for the 2018 iPad Pro From Satechi

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Satechi to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an Aluminum Type-C Mobile Pro Hub Adapter, which is designed to work with the 2018 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models.

Apple's latest iPads replace the traditional Lightning connector with a new USB-C connector, allowing them to do more than ever before. Because they use USB-C rather than Lightning, the new models work with USB-C accessories like Satechi's adapter.


The Mobile Pro Hub Adapter, priced at $59.99, comes in either Silver or Space Gray to match the available iPad Pro models. Like many of Satechi's accessories, it features an attractive brushed aluminum finish.


There are multiple ports on the Mobile Pro Hub Adapter, which expands what you can do with an iPad Pro. It features a 4K 30Hz HDMI port for attaching a display, a USB-C power delivery port for charging purposes, a USB 3.0 port with support for 5Gb/s transfer speeds, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.


The 3.5mm headphone jack in particular is essential for those with standard headphones as Apple removed the native headphone jack from the 2018 iPad Pro.


All of the ports on the adapter can be used at once, so you can attach a display, charge, listen to music, and use a USB-A keyboard or photo accessory all at the same time.


We have eight of Satechi's Mobile Pro Hub Adapters to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a 5-Coil ‘PowerDual’ Qi Wireless Charger That Can Charge 2 iPhones at Once from Choetech

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Choetech to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win one of the company's new PowerDual 5-coil Qi wireless chargers, capable of charging two devices at one time.

The PowerDual is a flat, oblong-shaped pad that is equipped with five overlapping wireless coils inside. It is big enough to accommodate two smartphones at once, and because of the overlapping coils, the two devices should charge regardless of placement on the charger.


With flat chargers, placement can be an issue because the iPhone needs to be placed right over a coil to properly charge. That's a problem that's addressed with the PowerDual. It can accommodate two devices placed vertically or one device placed horizontally.


For iPhones, 7.5W charging is supported, and if you put two iPhones on the charger at one time, both will charge at the faster 7.5W charging speed. For Samsung devices that support faster charging speeds, 10W charging is available.


An anti-slip surface prevents your iPhone from sliding or slipping off of the charger, and anti-slip pads at the bottom keep the charger itself in place. Heat dissipation holes at the bottom of the device keep your phone cool while it's charging to speed up the process.


Choetech is offering the charger, priced at $35.99, in either a smooth black finish or a faux wood grain finish.

Powering the charger is done through an included USB-C port, but a power adapter is not included. You will need to supply a 5V Quick Charge 3.0 power adapter.


Choetech has also provided a discount code for the five coil wireless charging, discounting the price from $39.99 to $30.99. Just enter the code MACRU535 when checking out on Choetech's website.

We have 10 of Choetech's PowerDual Wireless Charging Pads to give away. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, following us on Instagram, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.
