Review: Ventev’s Wallport r2240

Last week, I reviewed a portable battery that was provided by Ventev. This week, we’ll go over their wall charger. It has a pair of standard USB ports for devices to plug into, and is to be plugged into an electrical outlet. Like many other offerings from Ventev, the charger is sporting the company’s colors; to wit, this unit is primarily showing two different tones of gray with a litt...[Read More]

Review: Ventev powercell 3015 battery charger

Ventev, a company that specializes in mobile accessories, was kind enough to provide me with a portable battery for review. After spending some time with it, I’ve gotten a pretty good feel for how it operates. Let’s see how things played out. Spoiler alert though, this is pretty nice. Like many of the other products that the company sent me, the battery is stylized in the company’...[Read More]

Review: iClever’s Boost Cube two port USB charger

iClever is a company known for providing charging solutions. I have spent some time reviewing one of their Boost Cubes, specifically a two port USB wall charger. A few weeks back, I spent some time with their three port charger, as well as having also reviewed their quick charger. Let’s see how this one faired. LIke the other multi-port charger, this unit is a glossy and plastic white. On on...[Read More]

Review: Ventev USB charger, USB cables, and Aux cable

Ventev is a company that sells accessories to consumers for mobile devices. This last week, I’ve had the opportunity to try out a couple of their cables, and a charging unit, in my vehicle. I rely on my phone for things such as GPS navigation, music, and more while driving, so trying out this gear was a good fit for how I get around. I was sent several items, which I’m breaking up into...[Read More]

Review: iClever BoostCube QC3.0

  iClever is a company that provides charging solutions. Last week, I reviewed their three port charger, that puts out a solid 2.4 amps out of each port. Not bad. This week, I’m reviewing something different from them, which is a single port wall charging unit that supports Quick Charge. The prongs fold in, just like the other one, making this well suited for travel. It is color black instea...[Read More]

Review: iClever BoostCube 3-Port USB Travel Charger

  So I’ve been using a 3 port mobile charger from iClever during this week, that they call a “BoostCube”. I tested its purported claims, though being a charger, there isn’t much more that I can do with it. That being said, I think I found my new “daily driver” for my charging needs. The charger I was sent came in smooth and slightly reflective white plastic, and...[Read More]

Review: Plugable’s full size Bluetooth keyboard

So for the last two weeks, I’ve been using another of Plugable’s folding Bluetooth keyboards. Some three or so weeks back, I reviewed their smaller keyboard (found here: http://droidhorizon.com/review-plugable-bluetooth-folding-keyboard-case/). The tl;dr for that was good quality, but a bit on the cramped side, and thus required learning some new muscle memory. What I’ve been usi...[Read More]

Review: Tronfy T3 Bluetooth Headphones

So for the last couple of weeks, I’ve been using the Tronfy T3 Bluetooth headphones. I’ve had experience with another model in the past, and have an appreciation for the convenience that a wireless connection can bring. To my surprise, this one had some features that I didn’t find in my previous experience, as well as some points in common. First, the headphones’ appearance...[Read More]

Review: Snap Swipe Drawer

For the last week or two, I’ve been using a neat little app called Snap Swipe Drawer. What this app does, is create a duplicate notification shade, that pulls down to show widgets. In my short time spent with the app, it turns out that I really like it (so much for a review that starts with that, huh?). Once I insalled it, I was taken to a simple setup screen. It contained three slides, with...[Read More]

Review: Plugable Bluetooth Folding Keyboard and Case

For the last few days, I have been using the Plugable Bluetooth Folding Keyboard and Case. I’ve use a few of these in the past year, so I’ve had some experience with them, and was delighted at the opportunity to try out another one. Here’s how my experience has gone, so far. I want to say at the outset that this keyboard has a lot going for it. The design of this keyboard is pret...[Read More]

If you have several mobile handsets that need charging at night, check out this review

For the last few weeks, I have been using a power strip for charging my devices. It’s not your typical power strip, with a single, long row of outlets to plug in to, but is both shaped differently, as well as functions a bit differently. For starters, its shape is a square-ish. It’s off white and gray in color, with a matching switch on one side for operating the breaker. Lastly, there...[Read More]

Review: CHOE QI Wireless Charging Pad

Before reviewing the CHOE QI  wireless charging station, I had no experience at all with wireless charging; effectively, I am coming in to this with a clean slate. To be honest, I had high hopes for what it would be like. This review will cover not only the device itself, but also touch on what I was hoping for. In some ways I am impressed with the technology, and disappointed in others. In light ...[Read More]
