I work by day in the tech industry (online learning software), but my alter ego is a gadget-obsessed techy nerd gamer. I also like hiking and stargazing.

Dreame H11 Max Wet and Dry vacuum review – finally a mopping vacuum that works!

REVIEW – I’ve reviewed a couple of robot vacuums in the past that include a wet/mop function, but neither of them did much in terms of mopping. As a result, my back still hurts after every manual mopping session. I was excited to review the Dreame H11 Max Wet and Dry vacuum and hoped that …

Hohem iSteady V2 gimbal review – a smooth operator

REVIEW – Smartphone cameras have become phenomenally good in the last few years, but no amount of optical image stabilization or digital trickery can match a good gimbal (yet). So is the Hohem iSteady V2 gimbal a good gimbal? I took it through it’s paces and will now break it down in review format, as …

Hiker Garden 10 person tent review – spacious and sturdy all weather tent

REVIEW – I’ve used quite a few tents in my days, from tiny to huge and cheap to mid-range/name brand. In fact, some of my earliest memories of camping are of my father connecting separated pole segments for a big canvas tent that was leaky and heavy and took nearly an hour to set up …

Tekto Gear Silver Surfer folding knife review – as sleek as it is slim

REVIEW – I have been carrying a cheaper Kershaw pocket knife for the past few years, and I’ve been continually surprised by how often I use it to open packages or do one of a million other odd chores around the house. I would never have considered spending upwards of $200 on a pocket knife …

Wicue Smart Bluetooth Audio Polarized Auto Dimming IP66 Waterproof sunglasses review – surprisingly smart and stealthy sunglasses

REVIEW – Have you ever been wearing your boring old sunglasses and thought “I wish these would auto dim in this bright light, or be less shaded in this shady area”? And also thought “ooh and they should let me take phone calls and play my music and podcasts too”? If so, you’ve come to …

Segway Ninebot S MAX review – hoverboards made easy

REVIEW – In a world where electric scooters are on nearly every street corner, it takes something special to stand out. Ninebot is a scooter brand that’s been around for some time now, and they make many of the kick-scooter style electric scooters you see for rent in urban areas. Segway has been around longer, …

Vastking Kingpad M10 Android tablet review – great screen, fine everything else

REVIEW – I’ve been using tablets for a decade now, starting with the Motorola Xoom in 2011 (oof!), and continuing with a bevy of iPad and Android tablets through the years. It’s crazy to me that 10 years later, the dynamic still hasn’t changed much: for the best experience you should go with an iPad, …

Tom Bihn Techonaut 45 backpack review – you get what you pay for

REVIEW – As I prepare to enter my middle-age years, I have done a lot of reflecting lately. One of the trends I have noticed the older I get is to gravitate towards paying more for quality rather than always buying the cheapest functional version of something I need. Case-in-point: I probably used and wore …

Creative SXFI Air Gamer headset review – with sound this good I don’t mind gimmicky features

REVIEW – There are so many headset models on the market today that it can be daunting to research and find the perfect one. You could spend hours reading reviews and comparing spec sheets and only be able to cover a fraction of the models available. For me, it takes either an exceptional performance-to-price package …

Epomaker SK21 numpad review – customizable and versatile numpad

REVIEW – My large full size keyboard at my workstation has been a bit of overkill: I rarely use the number pad and could definitely use that space to the right for more mouse space. I was excited to review the Epomaker SK21 numpad and move to a smaller everyday keyboard. Overall I’m pretty pleased …

Gamesir F8 Pro Snowgon mobile cooling joystick review – for all those times you need a refrigerator on your phone

REVIEW – I play games on my phone nearly every day, and while I sometimes suffer from hand cramping after long gaming sessions, I’ve never thought “I wish I could cool my phone more to get higher framerates in this game”, but here I am testing a device designed to do exactly that. Gamesir sent …

Epomaker SK61 mechanical keyboard review – small in size but big in features

REVIEW – If you’re like me and have been using a full size keyboard including a 10-key number pad for most of your life, the world of tiny keyboards can be a bit of a shock. Just last year I started experimenting with different keyboard layouts (I don’t need numpad as often as I used …

BougeRV 30 Quart (28L) Portable Refrigerator/Freezer review – make all the things cold

REVIEW – If I had a dollar for every time I went camping or took a trip and had a bad experience with a cooler and ice, I would have at least three dollars. Traditional coolers can have a variety of issues like leaks, soggy food from melting ice, broken backs from the weight of …

Greenworks 2 x 24V (48V) 17″ Brushless Lawn Mower and Drill review – a gateway into the Greenworks ecosystem

REVIEW – Most of us have spent our entire lives using gasoline or corded electric lawn tools. I had infamously bad gas lawnmowers when I was a kid, where you had to yank the starter cord 10 or more times with all your kid-strength to get it going, then you had the hassle of mixing …

Puleida Portable Power Station review – Definitely portable and powers most things

REVIEW – We’ve been getting quite a few power stations sent to us for review here at The Gadgeteer lately. The Puleida Portable Power Station caught my eye because it was the antithesis of the last power station I reviewed (the massive Bluetti AC200P power station – which is most definitely not very portable). Puleida’s …
