Review: EC Tech’s noise cancelling bluetooth sport earbuds

  Phone accessory dealer EC Technology has another set of bluetooth earbuds for sale.They’re sport oriented in their design, and are supposed to be noise cancelling. I found their performance to be mixed, so read on to see where they succeed, and where they seem to fall short.   The design of the headphones are sporty, both in how they fit, as well as how they appear. The ones that I receive...[Read More]

Review: iClever’s tri-folding bluetooth keyboard, with touchpad

  iClever is a dealer in mobile and bluetooth accessories. Their range of products covers USB cables, chargers, speakers, and so on. I’ve been reviewing one of their mobile keyboards, and found this one to be the proverbial “mixed bag”.   The keyboard is has two hinges, each about halfway between the center and the periphery, which enables users to close the far ends over the mid...[Read More]

Review: aLLreLi’s F5 bluetooth earphones

  Over the last few days, I’ve had the pleasure to try out a pair of bluetooth earphones from aLLreLi. There’s a couple of different ways in which this is different from most of the others that I’ve tried before. Fortunately for them, they are improvements in just about every way.   These headphones sit over the ear. aLLreLi uses a siple color scheme, of black and chrome, using p...[Read More]

Review: aLLreLi’s four port travel charger

  Released by  aLLreLi, I’ve had the pleasure to try out a wall charger of their this week. It’s designed for travellers, as it now only includes several types of attachments for a variety of wall outlets, but they can be swapped out with little difficulty. Frankly, this is the kind of outlet that is useful to have around for the times when travelling, especially internationally.   The...[Read More]

Review: EC Technology’s uniquely shaped bluetooth speaker

   Sold by EC Technology, I’ve been using one of their speakers during this past week or so. This is a speaker that is designed to be portable, as it’s fairly small in its design (even compared to the other bluetooth speakers I’ve tried), and has a removable lanyard attached to it. In an odd twist, it has a bit of an unusual shape.   The appearance of this is shaped like an acorn...[Read More]

Review: Koopower’s screwdriver set

 Most of what I review here are related to smartphones. Smartphones and tablets have been a hobby of mine for several years now, so I’m good with that. Every so often though, I get to try something that’s a bit out of my comfort zone though. Koopower has sent me a screwdriver set to try out, and overall I thnk it’s a decent value prop. It is geared towards those who would use a s...[Read More]

Review: WinnerGear’s fully reversable MicFlip mirco USB charging cable

I really enjoy geting to try out different things for review purposes. Every once in a while I get one that I end up nearly infatuated with the particular product. Off and on for the last week or so, I’ve monkeyed around with WinnerGear’s Micflip. On the surface, it looksl ike any other USB charging cable, where it’s Mirco where it plugs into the device, and type A where plugs in...[Read More]

Review: EC Technlogy’s rugged, solar power bank

  One of the items I frequently see for review purposes are power banks. With how we use our phones, and expecte more demanding specs with every upgrade, it surprises zero people that battery issues will crop up, nor that a cottage industry would spring up to help address that issue. While I have more chargers than I know what tio do with (a couple at home, a three port charger in my car, one at w...[Read More]

Review: Omaker’s W4N wireless speaker

Over the last several years, watching the proliferation of wireless gadgets has been amazing to watch, from cordless phones (remember those?), to WiFi, bluetooth, and so on. The bluetooth speaker I’ve been toying around with, is one such example. This is smaller than the other ones I’ve reviewed recently, yet it sounded almost as good as the others I could stack up against it, at least...[Read More]

Review: EC Technology’s mirrored charging pad

Having landed a Nexus 6 about a year ago, I’ve really come to appreciate wireless charging. I tend to use them during the day, when I’m prone to pick it up and put it back down on a frequent basis, as well as overnight. I like how they preserve the charging port. In using them, I’ve also come to appreciate how some stand out from the crown, in their appearance. This one from EC T...[Read More]

Review: EC Technology’s bluetooth 4.1 headphones

Wireless earbuds seem to be all the rage these days. I’ve been playing around with a pair from E.C. Technology. My experience with these has been mixed at best. The unit that I was sent is on both the buds that came on it red with black on parts of the buds, as well as the dongle built into the cord, where the controls are located. This color scheme was the first thing to hit me, when I open...[Read More]

Review: EC Technology’s 10,400 mAh Power Bank

With as phones getting more powerful, and screen getting an ever increasing number of pixels, it just makes sense for people to carry around spare batteries. I’ve been trying out one by EC Technology, that’s larger than the others that I’ve used. Frankly, I like it’s shape, capacity, and “future proofing”. This one could easily become my daily driver, to carry w...[Read More]
