The Internet of Things is all the rage at the moment as more and more gadgets are connecting to our home WiFi network, allowing them to offer “smart” features such as remote / voice control and automation. WiZ offer a range of high-tech LED lighting solutions and we got the chance to evaluate three of their main products – their Hero and Quest lamps and Colors smart bulbs. Instal...[Read More]

In fact Gambling Commission figures show that it now accounts for 33% of all gambling in the UK and raises and annual yield of £4.5 billion.

Review: Braven Flye Sport In-Ear Bluetooth Earphones

Our previous reviews of Braven’s Bluetooth speakers have been very positive, so we were happy to be able to check out their latest Bluetooth sports earbuds to see how they stack up. Packaging is on point, with one of those boxes that open with a magnetic flap to give you a glimpse of the actual product before committing to the actual unboxing. Along with the headset you get a small zipped carry po...[Read More]

Review: Orico USB 3.0 4-Port Transparent Hub

If you’re like me you can never have too many USB ports on your PC, so it makes sense to plug in a hub like this which will turn one port into 4. Coming in a small cardboard box, this square-shaped hub has a transparent plastic shell so you can see it’s circuit board innards. There are four USB 3.0 ports along the top, while on one edge there’s both a standard Micro USB power input port and ...[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: Romoss Upower 10000mAh Power Bank

Most of the power banks we review at DroidHorizon need recharged from a separate USB wall charger, but this Upower model is more travel-friendly as it includes an integrated AC plug. With distinctive styling similar to one of those impact resistant suitcases, it comes with a “passport” instruction leaflet and “boarding pass” warranty card. You also get a short Micro USB cable and a UK wall adapter...[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: Slighttech MYNT Bluetooth Tracker

Coming out of a successful Indiegogo campaign, the idea behind this MYNT tracker is that you can attach it to your valuables (keys, pet, kid, car, etc.) and use your smartphone to find it if it gets lost. It can also help you if you have the tag but can’t find your phone. In the box you get the nicely made 2” stainless steel tag plus a spare coin battery, 3M double-sided stickers, an attachment th...[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: Shieldon Leather Wallet Style Case

Shieldon specialise in offering a selection of cases for Apple and Samsung phones. Today I’m taking a look at their genuine leather wallet style case for the S7 Edge. It has a fold-over front cover with pockets for three credit cards and some notes. It gives the impression of a premium product, coming in really nice packaging with a cloth pouch inside a fancy slide-out cardboard box. The black cow...[Read More]

Review: EC Technology Folding Mini Keyboard and Trackpad

We already reviewed a handy little foldable Bluetooth keyboard from EC Technology a few weeks ago but now it’s the turn of it’s bigger brother that includes an integrated trackpad. EC weren’t able to fit a trackpad into the same highly pocketable bar design, so instead of the horizontal fold this keyboard has two hinges that fold vertically. This isn’t quite as neat but overall it’s still fairly s...[Read More]
