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]

Review: Jelly Comb’s Smart Desktop USB Charger

  Sold by Jelly Comb, I’ve been testing out one of their charger for the last few days. It has a somewhat unique appearance to it, that works against itself in a way. It both has, and hasn’t, performed better than other “smart” chargers though, so scoring it in that department was a bit tricky. Continue reading for my full experience with the unit.   This desktop charger is...[Read More]

Review: EC Technology Mini Bluetooth Keyboard with Stand

While software keyboard improvements have made typing on a touchscreen much more agreeable, if you’ve lots to typing to do then it’s still hard to beat the physical keys of a hardware keyboard. However phones and tablets are portable devices so you won’t want to carry around anything too bulky either. This little keyboard gives you proper chiclet style keys in an ultra-portable design which folds ...[Read More]

Review: Bestek’s four port USB charging station

  Bestek is a manufacturer and retailer of a variety of electronic goods and appliances. I’ve been testing out one of their multi-port chargers. At the risk of spoiling too much early, I found its performance to be inconsistant, and a bit of a head scratcher.   The unit I used is semi-circle in shape, and comprised of mostly white plastic; think of it in the shape of a snail’s shell, b...[Read More]

Review: Kinzd’s leather card holder

Kinzd sells leather goods, such as wallets. I’ve reviewed several of their offerings as of late, and found them so far to be worthwhile. I’ve finished reviewing another one, that’s a bit on the lean side. Here is my experience with this one.   This wallet is more of a card holder, and far less from the conventional idea that one might associate with the word. The unit is effectiv...[Read More]

Review: EasyAcc 13000mAh Power Bank

I like the reassurance of carrying a good power bank with me when travelling, and this model from our friends at EasyAcc combines a very respectable capacity with some handy features that make it a worthy choice for my backpack. It comes with an instruction booklet and not one, but two Micro USB cables. Not only can you use these to simultaneously charge two of your gadgets from its dual USB outpu...[Read More]

Review: iClever BoostCube Dual USB Wall Charger (UK)

This compact wall charger extends straight out from a UK wall socket by a couple of inches, and has Dual USB output ports on the end. The adapter is well made with quality connectors and a lot less bulky than a lot of similar chargers on the market. It also has a blue LED indicator at the front to let you know when it’s powered up. Each USB port is capable of 5V 2.4A output, but there’s no support...[Read More]

Review: Elastic and Leather Wallets from Kinzd

  Kinzd is a website that specializes in selling leather accessories, specifically wallets and card holders. There are several that they offer, and they were kind enough to sent me a couple of them to try out. On the whole, they performed well. Here’s how my last few weeks of usage has gone with them:   There were a total of three different wallets, though in the third case, it would be a lo...[Read More]
