PECRON E1000 Portable Power Station and solar panel review

REVIEW – I’ve reviewed a handful of portable (and semi-portable) power stations over the years, and there are a couple of things I look for in a good power station now: good battery-to-price ratio ($1 per watt-hour of battery capacity has been the average going rate for a few years now), an informative display that …

Creative Outlier Pro True Wireless Sweatproof In-ear headphones review – excellent performance and battery life

REVIEW – There are so many in-ear headphones (or wireless earbuds or earpods or whatever you want to call them) out on the market already and the flow of new models never seems to slow. Many of these new models are either clones of competitors or very minor tweaks to a company’s “last year’s model”, …

OTD L2-H Electric Scooter review – solid all around scooter

REVIEW – When OTD offered to send over their latest L2-H electric scooter for review, I’m not sure what I was expecting. I’ve ridden scooters of this style with no motors, gas motors, and a range of electric motors (from barely-able-to-move to too-fast-for-comfort). This new scooter from OTD might be the goldilocks scooter for me, …

Dreametech P10 Cordless Stick Vacuum review – surprisingly great!

REVIEW – We’ve been using the same cordless vacuum for years, and I thought it was completely adequate. I’m glad Dreametech sent over their P10 Cordless Stick Vacuum for review, because if I’d tried this out at a friend’s house I would probably have bought one myself! What is it? The Dreametech P10 Cordless Stick …

AlphaESS Portable Power Station AP1000 review – many power, much ports

REVIEW – The world of power stations is one of choices: How many devices do you need to charge? How many watts will they pull? How long do you need them to run? If your answer to these was “quite a few”, “up to 1000 watts”, and “1 hour to multiple days depending on the …

REVIEW – I’ve reviewed several DLP LCD projectors here, as well as bought a couple on my own for various purposes throughout my life.

AKASO Brave 8 action camera review – great specs but some flaws

REVIEW – While top-notch phone cameras are replacing traditional film or digital cameras for more people every year, there’s still a market that they can’t replace: action cameras. Despite marketing suggesting it, I think most rational people wouldn’t take their brand new iPhone or Samsung flagship phone snorkeling or strap it to their helmet or …

REVIEW – Are you looking for powerful sound combined with snazzy looks, from a company with decades of multimedia experience? I’ve been running some relatively boring black computer speakers on my work/gaming desk in my office for years now.

Thinksound OV21 headphones review – audiophile grade headphones for half the price

REVIEW – Have you ever been curious about “audiophile” headphones and what justifies their ~$1000 price tags? I know I have, but until now I’ve never had the spare cash or opportunity to use cans of that caliber. Thinksound has sent over their new OV21 headphones that they’re advertising as “giant-killers” at less than half …
