NTONPOWER 13A Compact Surge Protector with 5 USB Ports Review

NTONPOWER 13A Compact Surge Protector with 5 USB Ports Review When we have a lot of people round, we tend to start running out of USB sockets and plug, as everyone wants to charge their device. So I was happy to see a 3-pin plug and USB combo, which allows 5 people to charge via USB and another 6 to charge with a 3-Pin plug. Thanks to the 13A rating,  it can handle a total load of around 3250W wit...[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: 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.

Continue reading for my full experience with the unit.   This desktop charger is...[Read More]

Review: Bestek’s flex lamp with USB charger

  Bestek, the online retailer of electronic goods, has recently sent me a lamp for review. On the whole, I like the lamp and I’m glad to have gotten to use it. It’s more flexible than a similar one that I own, but it does have  its flaws. So, let’s see how the last several days have gone for me.   The appearance  of the lamp is nice, but not  without a cost. It’s almost com...[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: iClever BoostCube Dual USB Wall Charger (UK)

Each USB port is capable of 5V 2.4A output, but there’s no support...[Read More]

On the surface, it looksl ike any other USB charging cable, where it’s Mirco where it plugs into the device, and type A where plugs in...[Read More]

Review: EC Technology’s mirrored charging pad

Having landed a Nexus 6 about a year ago, I’ve really come to appreciate wireless charging. I tend to use them during the day, when I’m prone to pick it up and put it back down on a frequent basis, as well as overnight. I like how they preserve the charging port. In using them, I’ve also come to appreciate how some stand out from the crown, in their appearance. This one from EC T...[Read More]
