Known primarily for its action cams, iOn manages to squeeze an HD camera, wireless connectivity and a long battery life into an ultratiny body.
Ion plans to add alert functionality to its Ion the Home camera eventually; in the meantime, you'll have to monitor your live feed 24/7 to get any real security benefits.
A fun, flexible action cam, the iOn Air Pro 3 keeps things simple without sacrificing video or build quality, making it an excellent option for those who just want to go out and shoot -- in or out of the water.
The Bissell Bolt Ion is a bad vacuum. It costs a reasonable $180, but it's such an ineffective pain that I wouldn't recommend it at any price point.
The iCade Mobile is a retro gaming oddity for the iPhone that adds physical buttons, but for a lofty $70 price. Its lack of universal compatibility, lack of analog sticks, and large size relegate it to strictly novelty status.
The $99.99 Sony Xperia Ion looks like a good Android deal but its weaknesses make it not worth even the budget price.
One of the better action cam options available, the iON Air Pro 2 improves on the original, while still offering a good value.
The standard Ion Air Pro is a rugged sports camcorder that is easy to use with many thoughtful features, but the addition of Wi-Fi and app connectivity makes it a truly standout camera.
If your iPad gaming tastes run to classic Atari console and arcade games, the Ion Audio iCade is a fun nostalgic trip. Otherwise wait for more compatible games to be released.
