BioLite FirePit+ review – Combination fire pit and charcoal grill

REVIEW – Who doesn’t like to sit around a cozy fire pit on a chilly evening outside?  How about a fire pit that you can pack up and take with you?  How about one that will also let you cook on it and is designed to radiate heat out to the sides and create less …

Dexcom G6 CGM system review – Continuous glucose monitor without finger sticks for diabetics

IMALENT UT90 Predator Flashlight review

REVIEW – I live in a neighborhood that’s out in a more rural part of the county.  There are not many streetlights here, and it’s rather dark at night.  I’ve added a pair of motion-sensing lights for the driveway and a solar-powered, motion-sensing floodlight for the back porch, but there’s still a lot of my …

Doogee S96 Pro Smartphone review

REVIEW – Over the past few years, I have become more open-minded regarding Android phones. Initially, I was an Android-only user for all of my cell phones but the OS always developed issues, and then the devices would fail.

Nuwave Brio 6-quart air fryer review

REVIEW – Pandemic cooking is a thing. Other than bread baking, I think the most articles I have seen have mentioned air fryers. I tried one in the before times but returned it due to its size and the noise. But recently, an opportunity was presented to the Gadgeteer Squad to test the Nuwave Brio …

Rush Charge Hinge 4500mAh Portable Battery Bank and Phone Stand review

REVIEW – Each day I walk around with 3 smartphones, with each having a specific use/purpose. My Android phone is heavily used and I often find myself away from home and in need of a charge.

TaoTronics (TT-DL095) LED Floor Lamp review

REVIEW – When we remodeled our kitchen, one of the main things we told our contractor was that we wanted a LOT of light. In fact, with each room that we’ve remodeled, we always put light fixtures with high lumen output. Why? Because light makes almost everything easier. Food prep, cleaning, reading, etc. Long story …

MOFT Snap-on Stand and iPhone 12Wallet review

REVIEW – I’ve been a fan of the phone/wallet combination ever since the iPhone 4 and my thick, leather book-type case. Now, with MOFT’s Snap-on Wallet and the iPhone 12’s built-in magnet technology, wallet cases can now attached directly to the phone itself. What is it? The MOFT Snap-on Wallet is a thin, MagSafe-compatible card …
