Review: DBPOWER N6 Camera

I’ve been checking out a small, handheld digital camera by DBPower. The camera is quite small, smaller than the ones most of us would be familiar with, that were more prevalent before the rise of smartphones began, about 10 years back. Unfortunately, my experience with the unit was far from satisfactory. So much so, that I haven’t even bothered to test out all of the features.   L...[Read More]

Review: Rollerblade’s Macroblade 84 Alu inline skates

Sold by the company known as Rollerblade, I have recently purchased one of their sets of inline skates. In this case, it is a set known as the Macroblade 84 Alu. Using these over the past several weeks has been a very interesting experience for me, considering it’s a hobby that I haven’t done in nearly two decades, leading up to my purchase of this particular pair. I acquired them for ...[Read More]

iClever’s XFree Bluetooth earbuds

Released by iClever, the XFree are a set of Bluetooth earbuds. They are resistant to small amounts of water, magnetic on the backs (to form a loop) and have decent battery life. While it came up short in one or two spots, they weren’t bad, overall.   The appearance of the buds are fairly straightforward. The unit that I had was all black, be the the buds proper, to the controls, to the conne...[Read More]

Review: Bestek’s adjustable tablet stand 

  Bestek is a company that sells accessories and power supplies. They’ve sent me a tablet stand to try out, and write up a review. On the whole, I found this stand to be useful, but in the fashion that was different than I might’ve hoped.   The unit itself is comprised of various metallic components, such a springs, bolts, and even the frame; everything save for the bolts and part of t...[Read More]

Review: Kinzd’s carbon fiber wallet

  So for the last few days, I’ve been using another one of the wallets from Kinzd. Much like the one that I reviewed a couple of weeks back, this is comprised of two carbon fiber panels, held together by a thick band that comes in four colors. The only real difference between this unit and the other is the slight deviation and shape, which causes the band to fit around the the other way, ove...[Read More]

Review: Bestek’s surge protector/charging station

Sold by Bestek, I’ve recently spent some time charging some of my portable devices on one of their surge protector units that can also power multiple devices. It’s akin to the power strips that seem ubiquitous these days, only it’s vastly different in it’s shape. Having run several tests on it, it seems to perform as designed, from what I can tell.   The unit is a somewhat ...[Read More]

Review: Kinzd Carbon Fiber wallet with vertical band

  So over the summer, I’ve checked out quite a few wallets from Kinzd. Heretofore, they’ve lived up to their billing. They are usually made of genuine leather, and function exactly as one would expect. I’ve been sent two more to check out, and this review is about one of them. Admittedly, this one seems another bit of an odd duck, similar to the elastic band with an attached keyr...[Read More]

Review: Jelly Comb’s Smart Desktop USB Charger

  Sold by Jelly Comb, I’ve been testing out one of their charger for the last few days. It has a somewhat unique appearance to it, that works against itself in a way. It both has, and hasn’t, performed better than other “smart” chargers though, so scoring it in that department was a bit tricky. Continue reading for my full experience with the unit.   This desktop charger is...[Read More]

Review: Bestek’s flex lamp with USB charger

  Bestek, the online retailer of electronic goods, has recently sent me a lamp for review. On the whole, I like the lamp and I’m glad to have gotten to use it. It’s more flexible than a similar one that I own, but it does have  its flaws. So, let’s see how the last several days have gone for me.   The appearance  of the lamp is nice, but not  without a cost. It’s almost com...[Read More]

Review: Bestek’s four port USB charging station

  Bestek is a manufacturer and retailer of a variety of electronic goods and appliances. I’ve been testing out one of their multi-port chargers. At the risk of spoiling too much early, I found its performance to be inconsistant, and a bit of a head scratcher.   The unit I used is semi-circle in shape, and comprised of mostly white plastic; think of it in the shape of a snail’s shell, b...[Read More]

Review: Kinzd’s leather card holder

Kinzd sells leather goods, such as wallets. I’ve reviewed several of their offerings as of late, and found them so far to be worthwhile. I’ve finished reviewing another one, that’s a bit on the lean side. Here is my experience with this one.   This wallet is more of a card holder, and far less from the conventional idea that one might associate with the word. The unit is effectiv...[Read More]

Review: CRC Life’s outdoor Bluetooth Speaker

  CRDC Life sells a variety of Products on Amazon. They recently shipped me a Bluetooth speaker to test out. It’s designed to function in outdoor scenarios, and it purports to be dust resistant (which I can’t test), and it is encased in a soft plastic/rubbery exterior. The handset is accompanied by an auxiliary jack, and a charging cable  Let’s see how it performed for me.   As I...[Read More]
