LemiPower 1536Wh LiFePO4 Power Station review – Power, power and more power

REVIEW – Since our last hurricane in Central Florida, I’ve become interested (my wife says obsessed) with battery power stations. These mini “generators” can power almost any device in your home (depending on their size and power) when the power goes out. You might think, ”Well, any gas generator can do that!” True, but gas …

XP-Pen Artist 13 Pen Display (2nd Gen) review – Small tablet big on features

REVIEW – Let me say up front that I use an iPad Pro (2018—due for an update) for watching videos and sketching out ideas using the excellent Apple Pencil. It’s a dream tablet in many ways—except one. As good as the iPad is, it only uses its own apps, not the Mac graphic design apps …

Shargeek Storm2 Slim power bank review – It’s fast, it’s small, it’s … clear!

REVIEW – How the new Shargeek Storm2 Slim power bank compare to a wall outlet with USB ports? Let me explain. Recently, I replaced two outlets with ones that had built-in USB ports.

Fremo X700 650W LiFePO4 Power Station review – a perfect balance between portability and power

REVIEW – Face it, we all live on electricity—period. And when power is disrupted, we suffer. One thing is certain—power will always go out at one time or another. When it happens, we grab candles, flashlights, and portable radios to ride it out until power is restored, usually an hour or so later. Sometimes, we …

Toro 21” 60V Battery Personal Pace Super Recycler lawn mower review – It’s deja vu, all over again

REVIEW – A few years ago, I bought—and really liked—the TORO Super-Recycler gas mower. Then I killed it. In a move too stupid to admit in public, I neglected to check the oil after a year of use. One day as I was pulling the string, it seized—never to start again. I  had to revert …

Huion Kamvas Pro 13 (2.5K) Pen display tablet review – Pro doesn’t always mean expensive

REVIEW – In my years as an art director, it amazes me the sheer number of graphics tablets that are available. I keep wondering, “Are there enough users to support this niche market?” I guess there are, because the tablet market continually grows and the competition can be intense. In the beginning, Wacom was the …

Master & Dynamic MW75 Active Noise Canceling Wireless Headphones review – So pretty, so pricey, and so good

REVIEW – In the world of personal audio, sometimes it feels like headphones come in two categories. There are those that are great at music, noise canceling, calls, whatever, but not something you want to be seen wearing.

Officelab iPad Pro 12.9 Bluetooth keyboard review – Think Apple Magic Keyboard wannabe

REVIEW – When you think about it, every review seen on The Gadgeteer site was written on a keyboard. It’s one of those things no reader thinks about—but the writer sure does.

Platin Monaco 5.1 wireless surround sound speaker review – A speaker system that thinks outside the box

REVIEW – Here’s a scenario for you: For years, I’ve had a DIY surround speaker setup connected to our smart TV through a good receiver.
