With the new year approaching, we thought it would be nice to look back and reminisce over the new devices and products that came out. Instead, we found ourselves wondering: which of these did consumers actually like, and which were "best"? To answer that question, we've turned to several other blogs, to see what they thought which products were best and why.
In case you own one of the following products, be sure to check EBatts.com for batteries, chargers, and other accessories to go with your laptop, cell phone, digital camera, or camcorder.
