Review: RhinoShield Screen and Back Protectors for the OnePlus 6

Review: Audew Double Cylinder Portable Air Compressor

Powered from the car’s cigarette lighter socket, I find having an air compressor like this new model from Audew really handy to have stored in the boot (trunk) of my car. Not only is it useful for checking and keeping your car’s tyres at the recommended pressure, but if you get a slow puncture then it can pump enough air in to get you to the tyre repair centre without having to change the tyre.
