5.0 out of 5 stars A pink Bluetooth speaker!, 23 Sep 2014
The SoundDew Bluetooth water resistant speaker is a wireless speaker that you can wirelessly play audio through via your mobile phone, tablet or personal computers. You can also take hands free calls via this speaker too.

In the box you will get -

- The SoundDew speaker in Pink which looks very nice
- A Micro USB to USB charging cable
- An Aux cable to connect non Bluetooth enabled devices
- Instruction booklet

This speaker is well designed with great build quality. It feels great to handle. The speaker grille and the back is a tough durable plastic whilst the rest of the speaker is made from rubber/silicone. There is a grey rubberised section at the back for when its laying down flat. The charging/aux ports are covered by a rubber/silicone flap. There is a very handy loop built into the top to hang this up! Cannot fault the design personally.

This is water resistant to IPX44 standard which means. . .

'Water splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect'

So this is splash-proof! (not full on water jet proof) Which makes this perfect for use in wet/damp areas in and around the home/work/recreational places.

At only around 200g and 3 inches wide this is a small portable speaker. Spot on for taking around the house especially kitchen and bathroom, throwing in your bag/rucksack, taking out into the garden/shed or on holiday.

In use -

I charged it up for around three hours. There is a Red LED light whilst charging. You will get around ten hours playback before a recharge.

Connection is easy. Just turn your mobile/device Bluetooth on, hold the SoundDew's power button down for around 10 seconds (there will be a beep then 6 seconds later a second beep and you are connected!} a blue light will flash behind the speaker grille. It will show on your mobile/device as 'SoundDew'

The Bluetooth range is approx 10 meters and the sound quality is very good, crisp and clear with a good bass to it. Full volume which felt around 3w is loud enough with a little distortion when full but nothing too bad, just lower your device volume a tad. You can also connect a non Bluetooth external music/audio source via the Aux 3.5mm port and supplied cable.

Whilst you're phone is connected to this, if someone calls you can take the call via the built in mic and hear your caller through the speaker. Your audio will restart as the call ends.

I tested it by playing some rock music, classical, metal, electro, punk and heavy bass. I found this speaker to be crisp and clear. The bass was very good for its size. The Tune in radio app is brilliant through this speaker and the latest Naked Scientists podcast sounded spot on earlier today whilst I was in the bath and the speaker survived a few splashes and a very steamy bathroom. I also took it into the garden yesterday which was wet and damp whilst I pruned my roses for a few hours. It did get wet as I just threw it on the grass and hung it up on a few nails and it performed well. I gave it a shake and dried it off with some kitchen roll. Great stuff!

To turn off just press the on/off button down for 3 secs and it powers down with a series of beeps.

I really like this speaker as the design is brilliant and very eye catching. More importantly the sound quality is very good and its claim to be water resistant holds well and it can definitely take a few knocks!

This speaker was kindly provided for me by the manufacturer to test and review.

Definitely recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking little speaker, 22 Sep 2014
The VicTsing is a portable Bluetooth speaker that enables you to play music or any audio wirelessly from your Bluetooth enabled devices such as mobile phones, PC and tablets.

The speaker comes very nicely packaged and in the box you will find -

- The Speaker (W 3.5 X H 9.5 cm) 5 watts of music power 500mAh battery Military green in colour
- Micro USB to USB charging cable (20 inches long)
- Metal camping clip to attach to the speaker to hang it up
- Instruction booklet

Note - There is no aux port on this speaker

The unit has a very good build quality indeed with the speaker housed behind a black aluminium mesh grille. The main body is a very tough plastic with a rubberised coating giving the whole unit a very solid feel in the hand. It has a huge suction cup on the back and sits very well on any surface. This is an outdoors use item and is rated at IP56 which means it is protected from objects of 1mm and over from entering the unit and is also protected from water spray from any direction causing harm.

Around the sides you have -

- on/off power switch
- Micro USB charging port housed behind a water proofed seal
- Play/pause/call answer
- Mic for taking telephone calls is on the bottom
- Prev/Next track which are also Vol + and -

In use. . .

After a few hours charging you will get around 8 hours playtime. Bluetooth connection is easy and it came up as 'C6' on my devices.

I've played quite a bit of music/audio from my Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Ipad 4 and Samsung notebook through it. All connected easily in a second. Blues, 80's Electro, Rock, Metal, Classical all sounded okay. The sound produced is very good leaning towards a bass feel. Using your equalizer presets or custom EQ settings on you devices you can achieve exactly the sound you're looking for. With no distortion at full volume this speaker can fill a room in your house if that's your thing. Being a tough outdoors item it would be great for the bathroom/shed/garden/beach/hiking too.

Telephone calls - to take a call just press the telephone icon button and you're on the call via your speaker which has a built in mic and to stop a call just press the same button again.

It's a nice little tough speaker which at 5 watts is quite loud with very little distortion at full volume. Brilliant for outdoors use as well as indoors, this is a good all rounder.

This speaker was kindly sent to me by the manufacturer for review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ain't no drag . . ., 21 Sep 2014
KM's gotta brand new bag!

I've been using this bag for over a month now. This seat post type bike bag is expandable and quite large with plenty of 'under seat' space to be utilised.

The bag is very well made from water resistant nylon which covers a hard inner shell. It has one large zippered pocket which is the main body of the bag and this can be expanded (doubled) by unzipping a second zip that runs around the bag. Underneath there are two velcro straps and a small zipped pocket. At the back of the bag is a small strap to hang a rear tail light on. The bag is supplied with a very good tough plastic 'quick release' clamping system to attach it to the underside of your seat. This is simple enough to do and you do not need any instructions at all.

Inside the bag you get a puncture repair kit with tyre levers, an oil rag and a very good Swiss army style bike repair tool kit which can be taken apart into two sections. I won't list all the tools as they're already explained in the product description but - along with the puncture repair kit (and your own supplied pump)they will cover every eventuality! I have used them and can confirm they are strong and won't break/snap. I've loosened some pretty tight nuts/bolts on an old road bike I was refurbishing for work and although I was using hulk-like force the tools did the job valiantly and survived the onslaught although I had to go for a lie down afterwards!

Of course you could take all this stuff out and get food and drink. keys, phone, map or whatever you like in here.

This is a great bag which I really like with a top build quality and I can thoroughly recommend it.

This bag was kindly provided for me to test and review by the manufacturer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something different, 21 Sep 2014
This is a plastic bar fitted with 24 red - green - blue LED lights either side of the battery unit in the middle (48 in total) that can be programmed to display colourful images when riding.

In the box you get -

- The LED light bar (17.5 inches in length) takes 3 x AAA batteries (not supplied)
- 4 nylon ties to attach it to your wheel
- 6 spare battery compartment screws
- USB to Micro USB data cable

The bar is made from a tough plastic and the LEDs are encased in the see through sections either side of the battery unit. The on/off button is situated on the battery unit. The bar is water resistant and rated at IP55 which means it is protected from ingress of dust, dirt, oil, water and any other non corrosive materials from any direction.

It is not submersible though.

Upon opening the battery compartment you will need to fit 3 x AAA batteries and here you will find a Micro USB port. This will give you access to the built in software that enables you to choose what image to display on your wheel. You just link it up to your computer via the supplied cable (only works on windows XP and 7. It won't work on a Mac) and you can easily pick what image you want from 48 different ones such as apples - android logo - bikes - different wheel patterns - Nike tick - I Love You - and much more.

The bar is attached using nylon ties in seconds and you just press the red on/off button to switch on. The lights do not come on until you hit 12 kmh or 7.5 mph which isn't that fast, so you don't have to bust a lung and pedal like a maniac to get it going!

In use -

It works! The patterns are clear, bright and vibrant. It looks great at night but . . .I personally would say that this is more of a kids thing than an adults. I wouldn't ride around with this on my bike myself. It's more for young kids upto early teens for me.

It's a great novelty, works brilliantly and I can definitely recommend it if you're looking for one of these.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best versions of this type of light I have seen, 21 Sep 2014
The FireBlaze security light is a solar rechargeable motion detection powerful LED light that will come on if motion is detected within 3 meters of it.

In the box you get -

- The LED light 4 x 3.5 inches - 4 LEDs- motion sensor - night sensor - solar panel rechargeable
- Two screws and wall plugs for fitting
- A small battery activation/deactivation key
- Instruction booklet

The unit is very well made from tough plastic and houses a non replaceable (not AA or AAA type) wired in Li-ion rechargeable battery commonly found in solar light products. The LED light emitters look decent (I checked them with a magnifying glass) as does the solar panel. The device comes with the battery deactivated and you have to use the key provided to press a switch inside to activate it. The light came charged and the lights flash twice to confirm battery is working after activating.

Watch your eyes - it's very bright!

In use -

Think about where to install this as it's range is 120 degree sweep at 3 meters. It will pick any movement up within this range.

Easy to install - just one screw (either in the top of the light to hold it up or you can screw a screw in and use the keyhole on the back of the light to hang it on!) or you could even silicone or no nails this up. Obviously install this where it will get sunlight to charge it up! :)

As it gets dark the LEDs come on low power and stay on. Now - if motion is detected within the specified range the LEDs instantly go full power at 80 Lumens which is quite bright at night and they cast a great light which is good for 20 feet and around 15 feet wide. Not bad at all for it's size. The brighter light will stay on for ten seconds before reverting back to dim until the next movement detection.

For around 7 hours solar charge you will get around 12 hours lighting time. The manufacturer does quote that this is IP64 rated which means it is totally protected against dust ingress and against splashed water ingress but . . .I noticed that the keyhole screw hanging hole at the back allows access into the back of the light. Now the electronics are sectioned off by a thin rubber wall but - I have put a 'lick' of silicone around the seam of the body to 100% waterproof it.

I found this light works brilliantly, it responds quickly and is bright! I really like it. I love the very low maintenance aspect of it - anybody of any ability could fit this - like I said, just use silicone to stick it up! This will be perfect for the now looming darker evenings/nights going into autumn.

I will update this review as soon as it survives a downpour with 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good erasable red ink pen, 21 Sep 2014
The PaperMate Eraser Max (red ink) is the perfect pen for crosswords, puzzle books and marking documents, making annotations where you may have to erase the writing.

The pen is around 5 inches long and made from plastic. It does have a comfort grip barrel to enable longer periods of use. The pocket clip is plastic yet robust and the eraser is at the top of the pen as usual.

The pen leaves a nice 1.0mm line with very minor 'skipping' (when you draw a line, every now and again there is a tiny section where the ball has not delivered any ink!) but most cheaper ball point pens do this to some extent and it's barely noticeable.

It does rub out well enough and the rubber won't tear through the paper like they did when they first come out years ago. They've obviously changed the eraser compound to stop this from happening.

So, this is a nice red ink erasable pen which is comfortable in the hand if you're looking for one and I can recommend it.

I was kindly sent this pen for review by the distributor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully designed stylish power bank, 17 Sep 2014
The Moonstone dual USB output is a portable power bank that will enable you to charge up your mobiles, tablets, cameras and digital devices on the go.

The device comes well packaged and In the box you will find -

- The 6000mAh power bank (3,25 x 3.25 x 0.75 inches and 272g) uses Li Polymer batteries
- A USB to Micro USB charging cable
- Instruction leaflet
- Grey soft storage pouch for the bank and cable

The Moonstone I received has a very stylish smooth black piano - like glossy finish. It has two USB sockets for charging you devices through - one 2.1Amp USB and one 1.0Amp. It does have a power on/off button and it also has a four green LED power indicator lights and a micro usb charging port.

You will find the 'CE' mark and other relevant quality accreditations on the device. This is a very well made and stylish looking device.

In use -

From flat as a pancake (I drained it) I've put this device on charge via it's Micro USB socket a few times now and it took just over 7 hours to fully charge it. There are four green power indicator lights under the power button that light up during charging.

The devices I tried with this power bank -

HTC M8
Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Ipad 4
Sansa Clip mp3 player
HTC Desire HD
A bluetooth speaker

All were partly/fully charged spot on with no problems. Pretty straightforward. The unit does get a bit warm but this is normal and nothing to worry about.

You can fully charge and empty this power bank out up to 500 times which equates to 3 million mAh over it's lifetime! Not bad at all.

The storage pouch is a nice touch as you often don't get a pouch with these power banks. It opens up like a wallet and has two pockets. It has an elastic band that keeps everything together.

I love the look, feel and simple functionality of this power bank. A lot of thought has gone into the design of this powerbank. It really does look the business!

As your mobile/phablet/Ipad becomes more useful in day to day modern life I think one of these battery units is becoming a necessity to have in the car, rucksack or bag/locker. This can provide emergency power for your phone/tablet until you can get to a mains power source.

I was kindly sent this power bank by the manufacturer to test and review
