Review: Hidester VPN

Accessing the internet through a VPN service has a number of advantages including protecting your privacy and letting you access location restricted content. Hidester VPN is a relatively new Hong Kong based service which I’ve had the opportunity to evaluate over the past few weeks. Software Once you’ve signed up for your account you’ll need to install the Hidester VPN app on your...[Read More]

It’s American Press Review

I’m a little obsessed with coffee. Most mornings start with a flat white from an amazing local coffee bar, but at home I’ve always just settled for instant. Sure, the French press has been tried – a few times – but the coffee just isn’t that good and I wind up abandoning the experiment. You know exactly what I mean too; that sediment-y, sludgy taste that is bitter in all the wron...[Read More]

Review: Linner NC50 ANC Bluetooth Neckband Earphones

This Bluetooth headset is worn behind the neck like a necklace with the in-ear earpieces wired to two plastic nodes at either side of it. It’s IPX4 sweatproof and includes an active noise cancellation (ANC) feature which filters out low frequency background noise. The flat flexible band goes around the back of the neck and is coated in a nice rubberised material. The module that sits to your...[Read More]

Review: Aukey PA-T11 60W 6-Port USB Charging Station

The PA-T11 is the perfect USB wall charger for power users or families that need to charge lots of different devices. The main unit consists of a slim black box with 6 USB sockets on the end – two of which are Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 compatible. On the other end you get a universal 2-pin “figure 8” AC power socket which connects to the wall via the included cable (as commonly used by many ...[Read More]

Review: Decoka DK100 Wired In-Ear ANC Earphones

Surely noise-cancelling earphones that currently sell for a penny under $40 / £30 can’t be any good? Like me you may not have heard of the Decoka brand, but after spending some time with their DK100 wired in-ear earphones I’d say maybe it’s about time you did. They come foam-packed inside a small black box along with a small user manual, drawstring carry pouch, Micro USB charging...[Read More]

Review: Ymiko Smart Bathroom Scale

I’ve struggled with my weight in the past and need to monitor it to keep me motivated. While any bathroom scale will do the job, this one connects wirelessly to your phone allowing it to not only record and keep track of your weight, but also loads of other stats such as your BMI, % body fat and % water. Inside the box you get the scales themselves along with instructions and 3 AAA batteries...[Read More]

Review: Aukey PB-T9 QC3.0 16000mAh Power Bank

Choosing from the wide choice of portable external batteries can be difficult. However with the PB-T9, Aukey have embraced the latest technology to make a power bank that’s well ahead of most of the competition. Not only has it got a large 16000mAh capacity but along with the usual 5V 2A output port it also has a QC 3.0 USB output port. This power bank has a standard micro USB port for charging wi...[Read More]

Review: Brainwavz BLU-100 Sport Bluetooth Earphones

This Bluetooth headset consists of a couple of in-ear earpieces connected by a short flat anti-tangle cable cord that runs behind your neck (or under your chin). They come in a nice zipped carry case, and the earpieces have a black plastic shell that seems good quality and keeps things lightweight. The fitted medium sized ear tips worked well in my ears, but if you have a problem then you also get...[Read More]

Review: WiZ Smart Lighting Solutions

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]

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]

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]
