Buck Knives 941 Travelmate Kit review

on Thursday, August 28th, 2014

The next time I go camping will be never, but if you love that activity, the Buck Knives 941 Travelmate kit is a nifty addition you should consider adding to your camping kitchen gear. It packs a knife, fork and other tools in a convenient sheath that even prevents the spread of bacteria. Let’s take aRead More…

Monkeylectric Monkey Light M210 and M232 wheel light review

on Thursday, August 28th, 2014

My son finally took up an interest in learning to ride a bike, so I’ve been looking into ways to increase visibility.  Bright clothing and reflectors are important, but a wild array of LED lights on the wheel?  This could be hard to ignore! (All images can be clicked for a full size image) WhatRead More…

Bench Soft 2X USB Charging Cable for Android review

By: Mark Rosengarten
on Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Charging devices is one of the unpleasant and time-consuming tasks that we gadget addicts must endure, thanks to the primitive state of electrochemical energy storage.  While ultracapacitors have not yet set us free from the torturous charging wait time, there are products that purport to make that wait time shorter.  Bench Soft sent us thisRead More…

Pivos Xios XS Media Center review

on Monday, August 25th, 2014

There are a lot of TV set top boxes out there. The closest I’ve come to using one is using Chromecast or our Xbox for streaming various forms of media. That’s not to say that I haven’t been interested, so when The Gadgeteer was offered the Pivos Xios XS Media Center for review (an Android/XBMCRead More…

UE Boom Jettison Edition 01

Logitech Ultimate Ears Bluetooth Speaker Jettison Edition review

on Sunday, August 24th, 2014

Yes, another Bluetooth speaker.  Maybe I’m a grouch, or old fashioned, or something else, but I see very little use or need for Bluetooth speakers.  The only one I own is the a secondhand Jawbone Jambox, and I never use THAT.  Then I found out the Logitech Ultimate Ears UE Boom model was highly rated, so I thoughtRead More…

Walhub switch plate storage review

By: Greg Carter
on Saturday, August 23rd, 2014
Posted in: Home, Kitchen, Reviews

Do you frequently misplace your keys in your house or apartment? Share your keys with others in your household and need a common access point? Like to dump your keys as soon as you come in so they’ll be accessible when you leave? Leave outgoing mail near the door so you don’t forget to postRead More…

Viatek Night Stars Landscape Lighting review

on Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Ever since my granddaughter visited Disney World, she’s been asking when I was going to put “Fairy Lights”  in the trees around the house.  I’ve been able to deflect, usually with the promise of ice cream, but now I can answer her request using the Night Stars light.  Although my initial thoughts were “who needsRead More…

Papago GoSafe 200 dashcam review

By: Mark Rosengarten
on Thursday, August 21st, 2014

I loved watching that footage of the giant meteor that broke up over Chelyabinsk, Russia.  It was caught by dozens of people, from every conceivable angle.  Were they waiting for it to show up?  Heck, no, no one knew it was on its way.  The Russians are big fans of car dash cams to protectRead More…

Dog&Bone Backbone-1

Dog & Bone Backbone wireless charging case, pad and Backbone battery review

on Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

We have posted news articles here on The Gadgeteer about multitasking phone cases before. To be honest I have been enamored by a few, but in the end I have to ask myself “would I really use this in the real world”? In most cases I would have to say no, the gadgets or gimmicksRead More…

Posted in: Outdoor Gear, Reviews

Have you ever found yourself with a plate of food but no fork or spoon to help you eat it? The Pro-Idee Picnic Cutlery set makes sure you never find yourself in that situation again. It’s a handy tear drop shaped container that holds a fork, spoon and knife. Let me show you how itRead More…

Forte Impact Rose Gold Earbuds review

on Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Headphones are the type of thing that are very hard to shop for, since there’s so much to look into – sound quality, comfort, and price.  I love a bit of bling in my technology and gadgets, so when I saw these Forte Impact earbuds in rose gold, I couldn’t resist to review them! Let’s take a look.Read More…

Cobra Drive HD Dash Cam with Wi-Fi (CDR 900) review

on Monday, August 18th, 2014

I don’t know about where you live, but where I am in Columbus, Indiana, people have horrible driving skills. I constantly see people run red lights and cut in front of you with little to no time to brake. I’ve often thought that I should consider buying a dash cam to use an insurance policyRead More…

LG G3 Quick Circle Qi Wireless Charging Cover review

on Sunday, August 17th, 2014

I recently upgraded from a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to a LG G3 smartphone. Having reviewing the LG G2 last year, I was expecting the G3 to have Qi charging capability right out of the box. I was really disappointed when I found out that this would not be the case with the US versionsRead More…

Bolse 4-port USB desktop charger review

on Saturday, August 16th, 2014

In my never-ending quest for power, with thirst-hungry gadgets all over my house, my car, and my office, one of the biggest problems I have is being able to charge multiple devices at once.  For example, when you travel and stay in hotel rooms, if you are lucky you have one of those lamps besideRead More…

IDAPT i4+ universal charger review

on Friday, August 15th, 2014

Chances are pretty good that you have at least one universal charger already.  One was probably even given to you as a gift over the holidays from a relative who thought it sounded “techie.” I may be just a little bitter because I find one in my stocking every year from my mother, and theyRead More…

Narrative Clip wearble lifelogging camera review

on Thursday, August 14th, 2014

Do you have a good memory? Do you remember everything that happened on your last birthday, vacation or family outing? Do you wish you had some pictures from that one time… at band camp? Although most of us carry a smartphone with a camera, we can’t take a picture every minute to document our lives. That wouldRead More…

Peak Design Slide, Clutch and Anchor Links camera accessories review

on Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Peak Design ha built a company by holding three successful crowd-funded Kickstarter campaigns for their innovative Capture and Capture V2 Camera Clip mounting systems and Leash & Cuff accessories. Having reviewed the Peak Design CapturePRO a while back, I found it to be well-engineered and well-built and I was impressed enough that I wanted toRead More…

TaoTronics Elune Dimmable LED Desk Lamp review

on Wednesday, August 13th, 2014
Posted in: Home, Kitchen, Reviews

Who doesn’t need a desk lamp? How about an energy efficient LED desk lamp? Often when I think of LED lighting, I think of the sometimes harsh blue tinted lights, but the TaoTronics Elune Dimmable LED Desk Lamp has several light settings so it is time to set my presuppositions aside and give it aRead More…

Lynktec GripStand tablet stand review

on Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

There’s a new-ish technology being used in many items, and I’m kinda digging it. It’s the microsuction tech being used by case and stand makers for securing items to smooth surfaces. The folks at Lynktec use it to hold their new GripStand to the back of an iPad or tablet – or even a flat, smoothRead More…

IOGEAR Wireless 5×2 HD Matrix review

on Monday, August 11th, 2014

We love our family room/den. It’s the place to be in our house probably because it’s a really comfortable room and most of our devices are in there: the Wii, the Chromecast, the Xbox, and our computer. One thing in particular that I have been wanting for a while is to be able to play ourRead More…

Arctic Home Charger 4500 Four Port 4500mA Fast Charger review

on Sunday, August 10th, 2014

Owners of multiple mobile devices realize that their gear bag or their power strip at home can quickly become a jumble of power adapters.  Sometimes you can share a single charger between multiple devices, but then you’re limited to charging only one of your devices at a time.  With the ARCTIC Home Charger 4500 FourRead More…

The Loop-2

The Loop earbud anti-tangling device review

on Saturday, August 9th, 2014

Stop me if you have heard this one before. You reach into your pocket, bag, or purse to pull out your earbuds and you come out with a wad of tangled and knotted up cable. Sound familiar? That’s how the idea for The Loop (earbud anti-tangling device) came about. Note: Images can be clicked toRead More…

Rapoo 3300P Wireless Optical Mouse review

on Thursday, August 7th, 2014

Personally, I can’t get enough peripherals for my desktop or laptop.  I needed a mouse that was small enough to throw into my bag whenever I went out, but nothing clunky.  Since I’ve reviewed other Rapoo products before, I grabbed the chance to  review the Rapoo 3300p Wireless Optical Mouse.  Let’s take a look! Note: Images canRead More…

Edifier e25 Luna Eclipse speaker review

on Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Among all the Bluetooth and desktop speakers I’ve reviewed, I’ve never tested both form factors in one speaker system. The Edifier e25 Luna Eclipse speakers combine the look and stereo separation of a dedicated desktop speaker with the convenience of Bluetooth. Not only that, they look like nothing else either. They even won the 2014 iFRead More…
