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: EC Technology RGB LED Table Lamp

Standing at just over 6” high this cylindrical table lamp has an aluminium base and white ABS plastic lamp shade. It is very power efficient running on only 3W of electricity, and comes with an instruction leaflet and a USB charging cable. To charge the internal 3600mAh battery you’ll need your own USB power source which can connect with the supplied cable to the standard Micro USB port on the bac...[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]

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: EasySMX Kids Volume Limited Headphones

If your kid’s gadgets are too noisy then getting them their own headphones is a great solution. However as soon as your back is turned, you know they’ll have the volume cranked to 11 and doing their little eardrums no end of damage. These wired on-ear headphones from EasySMX are especially designed for kids between 3 and 12 years old. Available in pink or blue/yellow versions, they’re a little sma...[Read More]

Review: EC Technology Compact 12000mAh USB-C Power Bank

If your latest gadget comes with reversible and higher amplitude USB Type C connector goodness, chances are you’re looking for a new power bank to match. As well as the usual Micro USB input and USB-A output ports, this compact external battery from EC Technology boasts a handy little USB-C combined input/output port. The other remarkable thing about this power bank is that they’ve managed to cram...[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: Vivibright GP70UP Android 4.4 Video Projector

Up until fairly recently you’d need to spend hundreds of pounds to get a video projector, but as the technology has advanced the price has been coming down and as a result this projector is available for under £100 (~$128) which I’d consider an incredible price – especially considering it has Android KitKat built in allowing it to play or stream media, and run loads of apps just like a table...[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]
