Dreame H11 Max Wet and Dry vacuum review – finally a mopping vacuum that works!

REVIEW – I’ve reviewed a couple of robot vacuums in the past that include a wet/mop function, but neither of them did much in terms of mopping. As a result, my back still hurts after every manual mopping session. I was excited to review the Dreame H11 Max Wet and Dry vacuum and hoped that …

PIXEL K80RGB Lighting Kit review – wonderfully bright but fatally flawed

REVIEW – These days I often create a short video to add to my reviews here at The Gadgeteer.  A couple of recent examples include the setup of UREVO’s treadmill and Flexispot’s standing desk.  As we’ve said many times on this blog, lighting is key to good photography, and that’s also true for good videography.  …

Keychron Q1 review – A stunning QMK Custom Mechanical Keyboard

REVIEW – My son and I discovered Keychron about a year ago. We’re both Mac users and were looking to see what all the fuss was about with mechanical keyboards. We bought him the K1 model (104 key with brown Gateron switches) and were almost immediately obsessed. I picked up a K1 and then a …

GOKUID Storm 2.1 CH Sound Bar for TV with Subwoofer review

REVIEW – Confession time. I generally like stock speakers. I know, I know. The treble usually sounds like a tinfoil thunderstorm and the bass doesn’t go low enough, or the crackle when one side of whatever speaker-equipped entertainment device you’re working with inevitably dies. (RIP driver-side rear speaker in my ’93 Thunderbird.) But I never thought …

Oupes 600W Portable Power Station review

REVIEW – Have I been called a prepper?  Guilty.  I try to be super prepped for an earthquake, which is far and away the most likely natural disaster to hit Southern California.  When the Oupes power station came up for review, it was one piece of equipment that was missing from my kit, and I …

Tineco Floor One S5 Series smart cordless vacuum & mop review

REVIEW – This past June we moved into a new house with a little over 1800 square feet of tile.  I hate housework. I would rather be outside working in the yard any day before dusting or cleaning the inside of the house.  With that much tile, vacuuming and mopping is a real chore.  I …

Nomad Base Station Mini review – a wireless charger with the luxury of leather

REVIEW – I typically don’t need to charge my phone while I’m at my desk. However, occasionally I have found the need/desire to top off my phone battery, but I wouldn’t say I like using a cable. When the Nomad Base Station Mini review offer came along, I thought it would be a great time …

Strap Bandits Basket Glen Watch Band for Apple Watch review

REVIEW – My wife purchased a Series 6 Apple Watch earlier this year and had to settle for buying Apple’s unattractive sports band to go with it.  I recently reviewed Bellroy’s watch strap, which is a nice upgrade for when she wants to look a bit classier.  She really likes the strap, but she also …

Hohem iSteady X2 gimbal for smartphones review

REVIEW – Creating steady video and moving around from various angles used to be difficult and physically intensive. I was recently sent the Hohem iSteady X2, a gimbal designed for smartphones, and it’s a huge creative boost. I’ve tested it in several use cases, and am ready to report. What is it? An electronics-driven gimbal …

Chargeasap Flash Pro Plus review – high capacity battery bank for all your charging needs

REVIEW – We all have a lot of devices to charge – phones, watches, tablets, laptops, Bluetooth headphones, flashlight batteries, and the list goes on and on. What we don’t always have is a convenient place to charge multiple devices. Even if we do have a multi-outlet charger, what if we want to charge on …

Lots to cover here, with lots of pictures. To the review! What is it? It’s a multipurpose balance trainer that can be used …

Seenda LED Monitor Light Bar with Wireless Remote review

REVIEW – As I get older I find that staring at a monitor all day has affected my eyes and I need a good light that spans the length of my monitor so that I can read the writing on the screen without squinting. Recently I reviewed similar lights and I really like them. Since …

BluReeze M10 Pro Electric Toothbrush review

REVIEW – I have been using a toothbrush from Cybersonic for many years, and it continues to serve me well. Cybersonic updates the models every few years, so I have not had much to complain about. However, I also have not been able to compare it to its competitors who I know would be striving …
