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: 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]

Review: EasyAcc 4” USB Mini Desktop Fan

A fan can really help you cool down when you’re too hot, but most battery operated fans aren’t that great. They tend to eat through batteries and don’t generate that much breeze. This fan is powered directly from a standard USB port on your computer, charger or power bank. This flexibility means you’ll always find somewhere to plug it in – typically to devices with huge batteries than have n...[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: Oxyled T35 4W LED Desk Lamp

This T35 lamp from Oxyled comes in a cardboard box along with a USB power cable, instruction leaflet and warranty card. It consists strip of 16 LEDs connected to a flat base by a two-part folding arm. The lamp is compact and fairly light, but seems to have been made from high quality materials which combine with modern styling to deliver a lamp which I definitely like the look of sitting on my des...[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]

This special cable from ICZI has been designed to allow direct data transfer between PCs via their USB ports. It even allows one computer to control the mouse and keyboard of the other and share clipboard contents. ...[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: WinnerGear’s fully reversable MicFlip mirco USB charging cable

I really enjoy geting to try out different things for review purposes. Every once in a while I get one that I end up nearly infatuated with the particular product. Off and on for the last week or so, I’ve monkeyed around with WinnerGear’s Micflip. 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: Promate Charger Trio 3-in-1 Dual USB 3.4A Car Charger
