Review: iClever BoostSound BTS06 Bluetooth Speaker

Happily we’re no stranger to iClever’s BoostSound range of IPX5 water resistant Bluetooth speakers. Having reviewed the BTS05 with its 10W speakers and the 3W stereo speaker toting BTS07, it should come as no surprise that the BTS06 has a couple of 5W drivers on board. It has a similar design to the rest of the range, looking a lot like a slightly smaller and more angular version of the BTS05. Aga...[Read More]

Review: Askborg ChargeCube M021 20800mAh Power Bank

With a brand name that will appeal to Star Trek fans, this 20800mAh M021 model is currently the largest capacity power bank in Askborg’s ChargeCube range. Inside the cardboard box along with the battery itself you get an instruction leaflet and a Micro USB charging cable. Rather than actually being a cube, this power bank has the usual rounded slab design that’s about the same width as my S7 Edge ...[Read More]

New Year Swag – The SteelSeries Apex M800 Mechanical Keyboard Review

New Year Swag – The SteelSeries Apex M800 Mechanical Keyboard Review I’m sure like a lot of other people who work in an office environment, you are probably using Dan’s old keyboard before he left. It’s black, shiny, you can tell he liked going online as the “W” key is worn down, and suspiciously so is the “X” key. So like the MX Mouse before, I was looking to up my game in the keyboard market and...[Read More]

Review: iClever BoostSound BTS07 Bluetooth Speaker

Following on from our review of iClever’s BTS05 speaker, now it’s the turn of its smaller and slightly cheaper little brother. The BTS07 has a similar black and red styling, but it’s a lot slimmer and more compact (coming in at just over 6” long). Apart from the red metal speaker grill, the rest of the unit is covered in a grippy TPU material. When I lifted it out of the packaging I was surprised ...[Read More]

Review: Choetech Bluetooth Transmitter and Receiver

Bluetooth is great for streaming audio wirelessly, but chances are if you’re reading this review then you’ve got some wired equipment you’d also like to use wirelessly. This triangular shaped adapter from Choetech will work with just about any device with a 3.5mm audio jack, allowing it to support Bluetooth audio. The unit has a plastic shell which seems to be high quality and I’d expect it to be ...[Read More]

Review: J-Bonest Surge Protection Power Strip with USB

I never seem to have enough power sockets, and even when I do they’re usually filled with individual USB chargers to power my various gadgets. That’s where this UK power strip from J-Bonest comes in. Not only does it turn 1 UK mains socket into 4 surge protected sockets, but it also gives you an additional 4 USB charging ports. This trailing socket has a thick cable and heat-resistant plastic shel...[Read More]

Review: iClever BoostSound BTS05 Bluetooth Speaker

iClever have released a new range of BoostSound Bluetooth speakers just in time for the holidays, and the first we’re taking a look at is the BTS05 which boasts two powerful 10W speakers, a passive subwoofer, IPX5 waterproofing and a 12 hour battery life. The unit itself has a 7.5” oval bar shape and has been coated in a black rubberised TPU material which is grippy and seems fairly rugged. Three ...[Read More]

Review: Esynic Mini Wireless Keyboard and Trackpad

I’m a big fan of those Android TV boxes that connect to your TV allowing you to run apps and stream all kinds of media. However they usually come with a terrible button remote which makes using them really frustrating. It takes ages to cursor around making selections, and they’re a nightmare when it comes to typing. I’d been using an air mouse which is much better as it lets you point at the scree...[Read More]

Review: EC Technology Bluetooth Sports Headset

After reviewing a pair of Bluetooth earhook earphones from EC Technology around a month ago, now it’s the turn of a second slightly different pair. They have a similar earhook design, include the same accessories and have the same audio performance and battery life – they even cost around the same. As they’re so similar, rather than rehash the previous review, I’ll link to it here and point ...[Read More]

Review: 1byone Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keypad

Mechanical keyboards use separate switches underneath each key, requiring a certain amount of pressure and giving a relatively loud click when activated. While they are relatively expensive compared to ordinary dome-switch keyboards, some gamers swear by their responsiveness and durability. If you think about it, whenever you’re playing a game you have one hand on your mouse and only actually use ...[Read More]

Review: Leeron IPX7 Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

If you’re looking for a Bluetooth speaker then the choice can be overwhelming, but if waterproofing is important to you then this model from Leeron is definitely worth checking out. The IPX7 rating means it can handle being submerged in up to a metre of water for up to 30 minutes which certainly beats a lot of the splashproof speakers we see around this $30 price range. It comes packaged in a card...[Read More]

Review: EC Technology USB Solar Charger

I’ve always liked the idea of solar products but as we don’t get a lot of sun where I live and in the past I’ve been disappointed with their performance. However I thought this solar charger was worth checking out since the technology has been advancing and it has 3 fairly large panels that offer up to 23.5% efficiency and up to a 5V 2A charge from its two USB output ports. The 3 panels are sewn i...[Read More]
