Aukey Aircore 2-in-1 wireless charger review

REVIEW – A wireless charger might seem like a kind of an unnecessary gadget … I mean, a cable works and you already have one of those.  That’s what I kept telling myself, anyway.  Then I rolled my desk chair over my USB cable AGAIN.  It did not survive.  At that moment I decided that …

Wellue Blood Pressure/EKG Monitor review – Keep calm but monitor on

Wellue Blood Pressure Monitor

Aura Air review – An air purifier that mounts on the wall

REVIEW – I’ve been using air purifiers for the past 10 years or so and have found them to relieve or remove the symptoms of my mild allergies and helping me sleep in the process. I’ve also found that while usually well designed for function, their aesthetics tend to leave a lot to be desired. …

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 …
