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 …

NutriBullet Slow Juicer review – juice all the things

REVIEW – Years ago we had a centrifugal juicer designed only for citrus fruit. While I liked the juice, it took up a large amount of space for something we only used occasionally for only a few types of juice. Enter the NutriBullet Slow Juicer, which can juice pretty much any fruit or vegetable. I’m …

Ultenic T10 Robot Vacuum and Mop with Self Empty review – Great vacuum but mediocre mop

REVIEW – The Ultenic T10 Robot Vacuum and Mop with Self Empty (I feel like there was a missed opportunity to shorten this to “U.T.R.V.M.S.E”) ticks off all the boxes I would want for a robot vacuum: LiDar navigation, self-empty, and mopping functions. Ultenic sent it over for review, so I used it regularly for …

Govee Lyra floor lamp review – excellent wall accent lighting with neat features

REVIEW – Govee already has a ton of smart RGB lighting options on the market, and now they’ve added the Govee Lyra floor lamp. This product casts a very customizable light pattern on a wall to add flair or ambiance to your room. It’s a freestanding lamp with a long LED lightstrip encased in an …

Govee Glide Wall Lights review – easy, bright, and neat!

REVIEW – I’ve long wanted to add some kind of wall lighting in my basement office (which due to a single tiny window seems to always feel dark). I’ve considered purchasing much more expensive wall lighting solutions but hadn’t pulled the trigger yet so I was excited when Govee sent over their upcoming Govee Glide …

GEFT Stand Mixer review – low price, hopefully not low lifespan

REVIEW – I was introduced to stand mixers over 17 years ago while creating a wedding registry at Target.  The eye-watering price of the brands available back then was a shock, and many of the units on the market still cost a small fortune. However, our wedding-gift stand mixer has lasted all these years, lending …

ANYCUBIC Vyper Auto-Leveling 3D Printer review – beginner friendly but not basic

REVIEW – I’ve never dabbled in 3d printing before, one big reason being that it seemed to be a complex hobby with a steep learning curve. I’ve eyeballed some cheaper 3d printers in the past but never pulled the trigger after reading reviews where they were either limited in functionality, or not as beginner-friendly as …

Vastking K100 Windows laptop review – good enough?

REVIEW – This review was an interesting challenge.  I was expecting the Vastking K100 Windows laptop to fall short of my expectations based on the spec-sheet, but it surprised me in both good and bad ways.  If you’re looking for an entry level laptop that is “good enough”, this might tick the boxes for you, …

KYY 15.6 inch USB-C monitor review – an excellent affordable second monitor

REVIEW – I’ve been using the Mobile Pixels DUEX Plus dual monitor screen since I reviewed it, but the small size does detract from the convenience of being attached to the laptop.  When the offer came up to review the KYY 15.6 inch USB-C monitor, I jumped at the chance.  I was hoping that the …

DOOGEE S86 smartphone review – a tank, both in build and size

REVIEW – Are you in the market for a phone that lasts two or even three days without recharging? Do you also find yourself in an environment where you’re splashed or immersed in liquids frequently? Do you mind carrying something the size and weight of a baby hippopotamus in your pocket? Should I stop with …

EZCast Beam J2 DLP WiFi Projector review – adequate portable projection

  REVIEW – I’ve owned and reviewed a couple of projectors, but never a “portable projector”.  This category of projectors tends to be smaller (for portability of course), and typically includes built-in batteries to allow for viewing away from a power source.  As a tradeoff, they have lower brightness levels and lower native resolutions than …

Fishda Double Head Massage Gun review – one head too many?

REVIEW – The Fishda Double Head massage gun caught my attention immediately with the dual head design.  I’ve been eyeing massage guns like these for a while so I was excited when Fishda sent this unit for review.  Unlike the massagers I found in my parent’s room as a child, these massage gun devices are …

Mobile Pixels DUEX Plus dual monitor screen review – add a sliding second screen to your laptop

CROWDFUNDING REVIEW – Working from home is the new normal for many lately, but this has been my normal for near a decade now.  One piece of advice I received early in my work-from-home stint was to get away from the desk whenever possible.  I definitely feel it when I’m at a desk for more …

Bluetti AC200P 2000Wh/2000W Portable Power Station review – all the power you need!

REVIEW – It seems like every few months we’re reminded of the fragility of our modern infrastructure with events like earthquakes, winter storms in Texas, pandemics, and other disasters.  The Bluetti AC200P 2000Wh/2000W Portable Power Station is an option for emergency battery backup, and on paper it would also be great for RV/cabin use or …
