pocket-shot-arrow-kit-1

Back in September of 2015, I reviewed a pretty interesting take on the slingshot, The Pocket Shot. I thought The Pocket Shot was a good product not only for everyday adventure but also as a survival tool. I was aware of another add-on for The Pocket Shot that would allow you to shoot arrows using The [...]

I have been a writer for the-Gadgeteer a very long time and over the years I have developed a systematic process for doing reviews. I am pretty AR about order and method but occasionally an item gets left on my doorstep that causes me to throw out my rules and tear into the package like it's [...]

litter-robot-1

I love cats, and fellow Gadgeteer, Dave, has rolled his eyes over my cat stories more times than I can count. The one chore cats bring with them is cleaning the litter box. With two cats and a dog who is interested in what is in the litter box, we have to have the type of [...]

kinesis-advantage2-kb600-01

I knew a co-worker who swore by those misshapen "ergonomic" keyboards.  I never quite understood them until I saw the Kinesis Advantage keyboard about 10 years ago in person.  I was intrigued by the dual concave shape and layout.  I finally got to try the latest version, the Advantage2. For those who are familiar with [...]

ilumi-smartbulb-review-02

The market is pretty full of "smart" LED bulbs these days. I love the concept of these since you can adjust your indoor lighting to any mood you feel at the moment. Here's another one to add to the list, the Ilumi Smartbulb.  I got the chance to view a couple of these bulbs so [...]

I've been thinking of replacing the hodge podge collection of pans in my kitchen for quite a while, but when I check the prices of nicer cookware, I change my mind because it's tough to talk myself into paying $100 or more for one frying pan. Lucky for me, I was approached to try out [...]

Your smartphone case really isn’t something that you should think that much about. But it should definitely accomplish several things while you aren’t thinking about it.  It should never get in the way.  It should protect your phone if you drop it.  It shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg.  And it should be quality [...]

If you're curious about how well some of the products that we review stand up over time, I've got a few quick review updates for you today for several items that I've continued to use after I posted my reviews. I also updated my favorite gear page by adding and removing a few items. Click [...]

The best thing about a wrist watch is that they can tell you the time whenever you look at your wrist. But the worst thing about most watches is that they run on batteries and batteries need replacing or recharging. I say "most" watches run on batteries because not all of them do. Today I [...]

If you're like me, you probably have a drawer full of USB cables and USB adapters. Do you ever pull out a USB cable and a charger and wonder why it takes so much longer for your device to charge compared with another USB cable and charger? The reasons why have to do with the [...]

tronsmart-chocolate-1

After a long day at work - and after putting our kids to bed - my wife and I tend to "veg out" in our bed. Generally, we'll watch some TV, discuss our day, or plan out our week. During this time, I often find myself in need of my phone, but find the battery [...]

This year I have reviewed my fair share of dashcams. They seem to have finally made their way to the mainstream US market and I believe that is a good thing. Cause a picture (or video in this case) is definitely worth a thousand words especially in an accident. Several of these dashcams were from VicoVation [...]

Has remote control overload got you down? Would you trade a handful of remotes for your TV, cable box, satellite box, Roku, AV receiver, DVD and more for one universal remote that you can control just by raising your finger? The Singlecue is the touchless remote control of the future. But does it work better [...]

Before I begin my review of the IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier, I must disclose a few things. First, I am asthmatic. Most of the time I’m fine, but my symptoms can go from 0 to 60 at warp speed. Second, we live in Florida, home of perpetual pollen. Third, we have two large dogs [...]

As I have grown older, I appreciate the finer things in life and that is definitely reflected in my EDC gear. Where I look for items that not only suit my needs throughout my day but also my personality as well. I prefer items that are well made from high-quality materials and engineered to withstand [...]
