Just under a year ago I reviewed the Cryptex USB Flash Drive from Steampunk Junkies. I thought I’d give you readers a little time to fully digest all the exceptional wordsmithery and inclusive critical data. Now, ten days short of the one year anniversary from that review which I expect you’ve ALL read, I’ve turned my attention to the PowerSource power bank. A power bank is essentially a portable mobile battery for your phone or tablet. It stores power until you need it and then you simply plug your device in when needed. It then mimics a mains connection and adds power. The PowerSource is a … Continue reading Steampunk Junkies PowerSource power bank review

Entirely due to their catchy music, unique style and annoying likeability. Their highly anticipated second album dropped into the Steampunk Journal inbox a couple of days ago.
