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.

Runhood RALLYE 600 Pro Power Station review – innovative power station system done right

runrood power station 24

REVIEW – Having reviewed quite a few power stations here at the Gadgeteer, they all have seemed to blend together lately for the most part. Usually, the review entails making sure it can meet the quoted power output, testing battery life claims, and comparing the number of ports or other minor distinguishing features. The Runhood […]

Geeetech THUNDER High Speed 3D Printer review – fast printing while keeping high quality

geeetech thunder 05

REVIEW – I’ve reviewed quite a few 3D printers so far at The Gadgeteer, but many of the items I print take all day (or even multiple days for things like full-sized helmets). What can I say, I like big … things. But what if you could speed a 3D printer up to five times

CA Essential Universal Docking Station DS-6000 review – nails the essentials

ca ds6000 1

REVIEW – If you’ve ever had to repeatedly plug in multiple monitors and desktop devices into a laptop that you’re frequently moving back and forth (to school, office, or even just other rooms in the house), you know what pain it can be to connect and disconnect everything every time. Docking stations alleviate that pain

XTAR SP100 portable foldable solar panel review – when they say 100 watts they mean it

xtar sp100 09

REVIEW – There are quite a few uses for solar panels, especially portable ones. You could combine them with a power station to create a “solar generator” system that can power things while recharging during the day and then continue powering overnight. Or you can harness the power of the sun directly to power or

Merach 950 dual resistance wood rowing machine review – row row row your butt

merarch rower 03

REVIEW – I had a cheap rowing machine a few years ago that I really enjoyed – not so much for the product but just because I liked the workout. A few months into using it though, the elastic-based strap snapped while I was rowing, throwing me backward. It was unpleasant, to say the least.

Brio air purifier review – Big air cleaning for big rooms

brio air filter 7

REVIEW – We have air purifiers running in nearly every room in our house, but it’s not because we’re paranoid. Rather, we have several genuine reasons to use caution: We live in a state (Utah) that has some of the planet’s highest small-particle pollution in the winter (due to inversions where smog is trapped in

Nerdytec Couchmaster CYCON² review – couch gaming done right

nerdytech couchmaster 02

REVIEW – I’ve owned at least a half-dozen gaming laptops starting in college in the early 2000s, and I’ve always loved the ability to play anywhere (at the cost of paying a bit more for a bit less performance). I’ve also tried at least a half dozen different couch trays or other accouterments while playing

powerness hiker 01

REVIEW – Another month, another portable power station to review! This one is the Powerness Hiker U1500 power station, and Powerness also included the SolarX S200 solar panel to check out as well. We have a couple of power outages every year, and often go on camping or boating trips (where we use inflatable kayaks

REVIEW – 3D printers have exploded in popularity in the last few years, and the range of choices on the market can be staggering to newcomers and seasoned 3d printers alike.

tst dreamer bike 17

REVIEW – I recently reviewed the HOVSCO HovBeta electric bike and thought I’d found the perfect bike for my needs – easy to hop on and get around town, capable of carrying some groceries or other cargo, and fun to ride. I was pleasantly surprised to get an offer out of the blue to review

Potensic ATOM SE Combo GPS Drone Quadcopter review – better than expected

potensic atomse 20

REVIEW – I have bought or reviewed at least a half dozen drones over the years, and when I first saw the Potensic ATOM SE Combo GPS Drone Quadcopter I thought it was an exact clone of my last drone – a DJI Mini 2. There’s a striking resemblance, but as I looked closer there

Emotn N1 Netflix officially licensed projector review – a great 1080P projector choice

emotn projector 10

REVIEW – Like many other products, the projector world can be sorted into tiers based on performance and functionality. At the bottom of the group are the cheap, dim, hard-to-focus low definition models that might not even include any smart functionality. I’d class the next group into a mid-tier, where most have much better optical

REVIEW – I’ve reviewed quite a few power stations with the Gadgeteer so far, and I have my own list of what I like to see on my ideal power station: ETA to full/empty while in use, LiFePO4 battery chemistry, enough AC/USB/DC options to charge the various things I need to charge on the go

Didamoda Lankzet Watch review – the best of no worlds

didamoda watch 02

REVIEW – To preface this review, I’ve never been a “watch guy”. The obsession with high-end watches by some people is as foreign to me in the same way I’m sure they’d view my obsession with gaming laptops or complex board games. I’ve been using smartwatches since the Pebble days (pour one out for one
