Shargeek Storm2 Slim power bank review – It’s fast, it’s small, it’s … clear!

Miracase Phone Holder review – Give your phone a hug with this holder

REVIEW – When the Miracase Phone Holder is open it sort of looks like it’s ready to give your phone a hug. In my reviews I sometimes state the item to which I’m comparing, and whether I’ll replace the old thing with the new thing. My DIY dashboard magnet mount has worked well for me …

Redodo 12V 200Ah Plus LiFePO4 Battery review – Power everything, for a little less.

REVIEW – Before the pandemic when I worked in an actual office, our building was powered by the largest solar array in our state.  We could park our cars under it, since it covered the parking lot.  If you had an electric vehicle, you could charge it up for free.  I really enjoyed knowing that …
