The Mobile Travel Kit lets you charge your smartphone or tablet while sending high definition video to your TV.
One of the really annoying things about smartphones and tablets capable of playing high def video is that most of them don't have an HDMI port. Instead they use Mobile High-Definition Link, or MHL - a standard that seems as if was made for accessory companies.
If you want video from your phone on your TV, you have to pick up an adapter, like the newly launched DVDO Mobile. The DVDO Mobile can send video from your phone to your TV, but unlike some other adapters it can keep your phone charged too by plugging in the included USB cord into a computer or AC adapter.
Additionally, you can use compatible TVs and projectors to control your device. You'll need a set that supports the appropriate CEC commands and software downloaded to your DVDO Mobile to make it work.
The DVDO Mobile is out now at a price of $99.
