ARTICLE2020 2021 is almost over. If you’re like me, 2021 has felt like a continuation of 2020, so I’m not sad at all that this year is done. At this time every year, I like to post an article that lists our most popular posts of the year. It’s interesting to look back and see what type of content that our readers were the most interested in. Let’s see if there are any surprises this year.

Do you know the saying that everything old is new again? That applies to this style of tool which has been around for a very long time.

AirCut DIY Portable Haircutting System review – I’m never going to a salon again

I bought this at the end of 2020 and I’ve not gone to a salon since. I use the AirCut every few weeks and I absolutely love it as an easy no-mess DIY haircut gadget. My hair looks exactly the same after each cut which means no disappointing surprises like I’ve had in the past.

1. EcoFlow Delta Pro portable power station review – Better than a generator, and no gas! By Dave Moore

EcoFlow Delta Pro portable power station review – Better than a generator, and no gas!

This review was viewed over 100,000 times! That’s crazy. Dave said:

This system is amazing! The engineers at EcoFlow have thought of everything! The system is crazy modular, expandible, and shockingly innovative!

The number one most read review on The Gadgeteer in 2021 is a power station review and a lot of the other popular posts were EDC items like multi-tools. This tells me that we need to do even more EDC-related reviews in 2022 which will be our 25th year!
