Anker Atom desktop chargers review

REVIEW – Last month I reviewed several of Anker’s recently released PowerPort Atom compact wall/travel fast-chargers. Both of these relatively small, very transportable 60 watt plugs are capable of quickly charging several of your power hungry tech devices at once…from your earbuds to your USB-C laptop. Well you see, Anker has been busy, they have …

Anker PowerPort Atom wall/travel chargers review

REVIEW – Anker produces a lot of charging accessories for the never ending list of today’s power hungry smart devices. Over the past few years, manufacturer specific chargers and massive power bricks have (thankfully) fallen to the wayside. USB-A & -C, better power efficiencies, and fast-charging technologies have led the way for universal charging solutions …

Thinkware U1000 4K dash cam review

REVIEW – Thinkware has definitely upped it game recently. For years I’ve been saying they needed to go beyond HD video capture…and thankfully they’ve done just that. Earlier this year, Thinkware released the Q800 Pro that keeps the 800 series form factor but bumps the resolution from 1080p to 2K. That said, their most recent release …

Anova Precision Cooker review

REVIEW – Earlier this year I got the opportunity to review Anova’s flagship sous vide cooker: the Precision Pro. It is a professional grade, restaurant quality piece of cooking tech…but for many, it’s probably a bit of overkill in the average kitchen. Recently Anova has released its latest home sous vide cooker, the updated Precision …

MEATER Block wireless meat thermometer review

REVIEW – Last year I reviewed both the MEATER and MEATER+ smart wireless meat thermometers. I have used them many times over the past year, even purchasing a few as gifts for family and friends. As the story goes, MEATER announced the Block around the middle of last year but has taken over a year …

BRYDGE PRO Bluetooth keyboard for the 2018 iPad Pro review

REVIEW – OK, I’m going to lead with…I LOVE this thing. I know the BRYDGE PRO is not for all iPad users for reasons I’ll get to. But for me it fits into, at least in part, how I want to use my tablet. Last year Bill Henderson reviewed the Brydge 12.9 Series II Bluetooth …

Casio PRO TREK WSD-F30 Android WearOS smartwatch review

REVIEW – Casio manufactures a wide range of electronic goods, from calculators to musical instruments. But I would argue, Casio is best known for their wrist watches…particularly their G-SHOCK line. For decades the G-SHOCK has been one of the goto watches for rugged dependability. A watch engineered to survive a march thru hell and back …

Anova Precision Sous Vide Cooker Pro review

REVIEW – I have wanted to try sous vide cooking for years. We have several friends and coworkers who swear by it. I understood the science and thermodynamics of how it works but I was always a little skeptical. While I have been tempted, I have been procrastinating more than anything…never pulling the trigger on …

Jabra Elite 85h wireless noise-cancelling headphones review

REVIEW – Over-the-ear headphones have grown on me over the past few years. I have preferred sport-centric earbuds due to their portability and ability to survive sweaty, nasty workouts. But I have come to appreciate the comfort, sound quality, and added features that over-the-ear headphones bring to the table. My current go-to earbuds are the …

Polar Vantage V Pro multisports watch review

REVIEW – I love receiving new fitness gear to review…nine times out of ten, it amps up my desire to get/be/stay in-shape, workout, pound pavement, etc. As the years roll by, it gets increasingly difficult to be epic but I am a firm believer in that you get what you sow. Today’s tech-world gives us …

QwerkyToys Qwerkywriter S mechanical keyboard review

REVIEW – As I’m sure the Gadgeteer Kid, my wife, and many friends & family would attest to, I’m pretty old school. While I do love tech-toys and modern conveniences, I could easily see myself living in past decades. So when I came across the Qwerkywriter S, it definitely caught my attention. I’ve been wanting …
