Limefuel's Rugged L150XR external battery features resilient construction, surpasses Kickstarter goa

Limefuel has succeeded in crowdfunding its latest gadget, the IP66 Rugged L150XR external battery. The battery is waterproof, dirt-proof, shock- and crush-proof, as determined by its IP66 protection rating. Featuring a 15,000mAh (57Wh) battery capacity, the Limefuel Rugged L150XR comes equipped with a 5V/2A(max) input for faster charging, dual 5V/2.4A(max) outputs to charge multiple devices at the same time, a touch-activated power indicator, pass-through charging enabled, auto-on and auto-off functionality, and a slot for a strap or clip for carrying. The rugged Limefuel battery will be available in two smaller capacities as well, with the L104XR offering 10,400mAh and the L130XR holding 13,000mAh. Its Kickstarter is ongoing until mid-March, and those interested in pledging as way of pre-ordering the Limefuel Rugged can receive the lowest capacity battery for $50, with shipping beginning in May.

Stitcher for Android update adds offline listening for archived podcast episodes

Radio and podcast listening app Stitcher has been updated for Android users, offering greater offline listening options. Stitcher's Listen Later feature allows users to save podcast episodes of interest to listen to later. Though previously only available for new episodes, v3.2.0 now lets users browse and listen to every episode (unless exempted) of a favorite podcast, and listen to archives offline as well. Stitcher's iOS version also has an offline mode, however it has not been updated to include this feature for archived episodes as of yet.
