Review: EC Technology’s wireless charging pad

EC Technology is a company that sells a variety of products. I’ve had the pleasure of trying out one of their wireless charging pads this week. Of all the charging pads that I’ve tried, this one looks the nicest. The unit is all black on the top, and a metallic looking gray on the bottom, as well as all around its side. The unit is oblong, being round at the ends and straight along the...[Read More]

Review: Omaker’s three port USB car charger

Omaker sells what they call “lifestyle accessories”. What they offer includes things that range from Bluetooth speakers, two lamps, two cables. This week, I’ve been using one of their USB car chargers. I’m home, I’m pretty fond of this thing. The design and appearance of this charger is fairly simple. There’s No Frills to it, the entire unit is black or grey, wi...[Read More]

Review: iClever’s headphones designed for kids

iClever sells headphones that are designed for kids. They have a couple of seasonal sets, as well as a “year ’round” one. It was this last one that I got to try out. Here’s how things went. The model that I opted to try out were pink headphones, with cat-like ears on the top. The entire unit is made of plastic, and is colored in two different shades of pink. The earphones r...[Read More]

Review: Ninja Loop strap for smartphones

So for the last few days, I’ve been using the Ninja Loop. Admittedly, a strap on the back of my phone didn’t strike me as a very appealing propsition. After using it though, I found myself enjoying it much more so, than I thought I would. The look of the Ninja Loop is fairly straight foward, in that it is a simple strip of an artificial material that’s similar to nylon, and is ma...[Read More]

Review: Koopower’s wireless doorbell

Koopower sells quite the diverse group of products that range from a sports watch, to Christmas lights, to this product: a wireless doorbell. My expectations of the unit were not in line with how it performed though, as it was much better than I’d pictured in my head. Frankly, it was both simple and reliable. The unit is comprised of three parts, all housed in white plastic, and they are acc...[Read More]

Review: Koopower’s Outdoor Fairy Lights

Every once in a while, I get something to review that isn’t really mobile or smartphone related. Most of what I seem to get are headphones, chargers, cables, batteries, and such. This week, I’ve had the pleasure to try out some solar powered “outdoor fairy lights”. (read: Christmas lights). On the whole, I really enjoyed using these, though it wasn’t without its flaws...[Read More]

Review: SmartOmni wireless earbuds

Wireless earbuds are all abuzz lately, with Apple making the controversial decision to remove headphone jacks from iPhones. And to the surprise of no one, it’s becoming a potential boon to Bluetooth audio OEMs, such as the pair of wireless earbuds I’ve been using from SmartOmni. My experience with them has been different, to say the least. The buds are fairly small, each with their own...[Read More]

Review: TechElec VR headset

TechElec offers a variety of products, which includes a VR headset. With this new offering that ties into mobile handsets getting a lot of buzz and PR lately, it’s not surprising in the least to see these headsets pop up all over the web. This one has some flaws to it, as well as some good ideas, so it’s a mixed bag at best. The unit is comprised of hard plastic and elastic straps that...[Read More]

Review: TechElec’s Nylon Braided USB cables

For the last few weeks, I’ve been using some USB cables provided by TechElec. The ones I received were a coppery, (dare I say) rose gold in color at the points of connection, and more of a traditional gold for the cable proper. I was able to test out both lengths that they make available, 3 feet/1 meter, and 6 feet 2 meter.   These cables are rated at 2.4 amps, for charging. In this cas...[Read More]

Review: Omaker’s M4 Bluetooth Speaker

For the last few weeks, I’ve had the privelage of getting to enjoy using wireless, Bluetooth speakers. The prior one that I did was a nice looking one that would fit in just about anywhere. The focus of this one, from Omaker, is more about rugged durability. It has a solid feel to it, and looks the part as well. The appearance of the device that I reviewed was green and gray. The top and bot...[Read More]

Review: aLLreLi’s gaming mouse and T9 keyboard

For the last week or so, I’ve been enjoying the use of a pair of aLLreLi’s products, of which they sell a variety. In this case, it’s a pair of PC gaming accessories. One of them is a gaming centric mouse, and the other is a keyboard that’s been modified for the same purpose. With both being released by aLLreLi, they have VERY similar “back end” functionality, w...[Read More]

Review: IEC Technology’s Ultra Portable Bluetooth Speaker

So for the last few days, I’ve been playing around with a Bluetooth speaker. I’ve been somewhat intrigued by the concept for some time, so I was excited to check this out. Here’s how this one shook out for me. In a word, this things looks NICE. It’s a gray cylinder, with a faux metallic appearance. There’s a reflective, chrome like ring around the top of it, and an LE...[Read More]
