CNET editors choose the best 802.11ac networking devices, including wireless routers.
The Power Practical PowerPot V is a useful gadget for connected outdoor-types, and $149 seems like a fair price for anywhere charging capability -- whether you're camping under the stars or hanging out at home during a power outage.
For smartphone owners who crave both active noise canceling and Bluetooth wireless audio, the Nokia Purity Pro by Monster is worth its steep price.
On this week's Crave, scientists recharge devices with pee power, air guitar gets a boost with LEDs, and a small Colorado town wants to issue "drone hunting" licenses. Yup.
The new over-the-ear model with active noise cancellation is aimed at folks who want a more premium -- and exclusive headphone -- than a pair of $300 Beats.
The BoostTurbine 4000 is a reliable gadget charger for when you need extra power, but it's too big to slip into a pocket for everyday use.
While in sound quality the Monster iSport Intensity earphones are a step down from the noise-isolating Immersion models, they offer good sound and a comfortable, secure fit with an open design that will appeal to folks who don't like having eartips jammed into their ears.
If you crave a compact megazoom that gives you a lot of control over your results, look no further than the Fujifilm FinePix F900EXR.

The Katana allegedly offers mind-blowing sound for a compact Bluetooth speaker. It can also be upgraded to be a multiroom audio system.
The Monster ClarityHD Micro is a very good little Bluetooth speaker, but it's only worth buying if you can get it for less than $125.
If you can get past the supercompact design and reimagined controls, the Canon PowerShot N is a fine point-and-shoot companion for your smartphone.
