Ocoopa Rechargeable Hand Warmer with 10,000 mAh power bank review

REVIEW – The only thing I like better than a gadget doing something really well is a gadget that does 2 things really well!  The $36.99 Ocoopa hand warmer does exactly that… warms your hands.  But it also doubles as a 10,000 mAh power bank with 2 output ports to charge 2 devices simultaneously. This is …

Bartesian premium cocktail maker review – It’s the Keurig of cocktail makers

REVIEW – When I make one I make sure that I have the right cherries on hand.  (Using those maraschino cherries is for amateurs.) I also need the perfect orange bitters, and good quality simple syrup.  The right sized glass is also critical, and if you have the ability to make one, use a classic …

REVIEW – For those folks who live the RV life, there are some things that you come to expect.
