4.0 out of 5 stars A Durable and Staple MFI 8-Pin USB Lightning Cable for your Apple i-Device Charging Needs!, 28 Dec. 2015
I was approached by the Zilong company a few weeks ago, providing me a sample of their 8-Pin to USB Cable, being sold on behalf of the Hamswan company, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review for their product page and the Amazon community at large, and I must say that it couldn't come at a better time looking around me at the plethora of Apple devices presently surrounding me!
There is so much technology that we rely on throughout our modern twenty-first century lives, and now that the Lightning Cable has become a staple way of charging mostly Apple i-devices, such as iPhones, iPads and iPods, households must make sure that they are prepared. Apart from Mini and Micro USB cables, my personal household of three individuals houses plenty of i-devices that require lightning cables to ensure that their phones and tablets are fully charged and ready to go, using wall adaptors, computers/laptops and external power batteries whilst on the move to do so.
Now that Apple have pretty much taken the reins regarding phones and tablets, et cetera, (with Android devices steadily climbing their way forward surprisingly!), it is vital for households to have enough lightning cables in their possession to keep up with their daily lives; both 8-Pin for Apple's most recent generation of device models (i.e. the iPhone 5/6 (Plus) and iPad Pro), and 32-Pin for the older variety (such as the iPhone 4, for example).
The model provided here by the Hamswan company is an 8-Pin connector for the most recent generation of Apple devices, which I personally use for my iPhone 6 Plus (recently upgraded from the iPhone 5), my iPod Nano and my iPad Air 2. Although Apple usually provide pin connectors with their products, it is always vital to have spare cables around for varying charging needs, such as when carrying external power batteries for work use and for that extra jolt of power when needed.
The company has had certification from Apple for the cable to be legitimately used, with an added protective PVC layer on the outer shell of the lead so as to avoid bending and fraying that so many cables on the market suffer from when purchased cheaply and without an MFI (Made for i-devices) certificate. This certification can additionally be tracked by Apple itself on its official website using the UPC/EAN number attached to the product, which is a handy feature to keep peace of mind regarding the assurance of the item's compatibility with your device(s). The cable has a length of 3.3 feet/one meter, and the Velcro strip that is looped onto the cable is a nice aesthetic feature so as to keep the lead tidy whilst in storage o when travelling; making the item look quite professional, in my opinion.
Overall, this MFI Certified 8-Pin to USB Cable by the Hamswan company for the newer generation of Apple i-devices is a very well crafted and practical accessory for any modern twenty-first century household, and its durability with one year warranty/guarantee puts it high up on the list of competitive companies and products on the market presently that are a lot cheaper than the lightning connector leads provided by the Apple company itself (which seem to be getting ever more expensive of late!).

4.0 out of 5 stars A Practically Minded Towel/Cleaning Utility Storage System for Busy Households, 25 Dec. 2015
I was approached a few weeks ago in order to sample Winomo's Multi-Functional Aluminium Mop Rack in exchange for an honest and unbiased review for their product page and the Amazon community at large.
Honestly, this ask couldn't come at a better time, as I have recently moved out of my family home and am now living in the big wide world with a couple of friends of mine. Of course, this on the surface sounds wonderful; however, it turns out that living with a group of other people whilst having a bit of a personal cleaning compulsion can become quite bothersome! It is the bathroom area that the untidiness seems to come to the fore in its entirety; with towels strewn about the floor with dirty laundry, and various shower gels and bath products left about to fester with their lids off on the side.
This is where a mop rack does indeed come in handy for the various cleaning utilities that are needed for the bathroom area, or for anywhere that requires a certain level of cleaning throughout the week to maintain the household's tidiness. Whereas a mop or towel rack would usually simply consist of one or two hooks or so, Winomo provides a product that allows the consumer to hold a variety of items via the four adjustable hook grooves on its wall rack that requires approximately fifty-one centimetres of wall length to pin up using the screws provided. Once positioned on the wall, it is advisable to lift the item that you want to hold on the rack from the bottom groove and then simply let it go to fall into place. Additionally, with the hooks having a slidable function across the rack, one can keep as many items together as possible in a neat and tidy fashion, which comes in especially handy whilst living in a busy household such as student accommodation, for example.
It must be mentioned that, whilst Winomo's Multi-Functional Aluminium Mop Rack is a more than practical addition for any tidy household, the company does not seem to provide much in the way of clear instructions; although these are pretty much self-explanatory when looking at the item. However, please note, that without any such instruction booklet, and the installation method being printed on the side of the box itself with very lacklustre/broken English (Winomo being an Asian company), the Mop Rack is basically all you get in the box with very little instruction from the company unfortunately.
That being said, the lack of understandable instruction in English holds nothing against the practicality of the item itself, and with Winomo's products being both aesthetically pleasing and well-crafted (see also their Swing Top Trash Bin), this Aluminium Mop Rack is most definitely recommended to keep one's household in order; keeping all bathroom equipment together in a tidy fashion for when it is required.

4.0 out of 5 stars A High Quality Bundle of Six Micro USB Cales; Being a Staple Addition to the Modern Twenty-First Century Household!, 22 Dec. 2015
I was approached by the BRG Tech company a few weeks ago, providing me a sample of their Six Micro USB Bundle in exchange for an honest and unbiased review, and I must say that it couldn't come at a better time!
There is so much technology that we rely on throughout our modern twenty-first century lives, and now that the micro USB cable has become a staple way of charging certain devices, households must make sure that they are prepared. Apart from lightning cables and mini USB cables, my personal household of three individuals houses plenty of devices that require micro USB cables to ensure that various power batteries, handheld gaming consoles, certain tablets and wireless controllers are fully charged. Over the last few months, I have specifically used my personal micro USB cable to charge mainly my external power battery and Kindle for when I have to travel to work. However, having only one cable means that my devices, and subsequently those belonging to my housemates who regularly use such cable, aren't always fully charged for when they need to be taken or used.
This is where the six pack bundle of micro USB cables provided by the BRG Tech company come in very handy indeed. With a data sync speed of up to 480Mbps, and being fully approved via certification from UL, ROSH, SGS and Reach, these cables charge your intended devices(s) quickly and efficiently for a variety of uses, especially in a large household such as mine. The six cables form part of a bundle that includes micro USB leads of varying lengths; that being 2x 1ft, 3x 4ft and 1x 6ft. This is great for those times when you have a cable needing to be used in the middle of charging, especially regarding the one cable of six feet in length, and the one foot cables are additionally useful for devices such as external power batteries and such that don't take up too much space whilst travelling.
The cables themselves are very durable and are made of a very high quality material, with a rubberised hook around each one to keep the various leads from tangling whilst being used, or when stored in the provided pull-cord storage bag. With that in mind, the storage bag is waterproof, being extremely useful for travelling, and the pull cord makes sure that all the leads of varying lengths are stored without the worry of tangling due to the aforementioned rubberised hooks to keep them all in one place.
Overall, this Bundle of Six Micro USB Cables provided by BRG Tech is an extremely handy amenity to have around the home for all consumers' charging needs for various devices in this modern age of smartphones, tablets and gaming accessories, et cetera. With the cables themselves being very durable and made of very high quality material, it is obvious that the BRG Tech company has customer service fervently in mind, with their eighteen month product guarantee and online customer support proving testament to such.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Practical and Aesthetically Pleasing Zippered Waist Bag/Pack for Sporting and Daily Outdoor Activities Alike!, 16 Dec. 2015
I was approached by the Freetoo company a few weeks ago, who gave me a discounted sample item, in order to provide them and the Amazon community at large with an honest and unbiased review for one of their products; in this case, their Zippered Bum Bag, and I can honestly say that it is an overall efficient, practical and aesthetically pleasing addition to anyone's outerwear wardrobe (especially runners, athletes and gym goers in particular).
When going out into town, especially just living around the corner from the local amenity shops, I hate the idea of getting my cumbersome everyday work bag out in order to carry my phone, wallet, keys, et cetera, on my person. I recently got round this by picking up a small shoulder-strap man bag from Primark in London, and this has proved to be rather useful. However, this is still rather cumbersome to deal with at times, and I end up simply walking down the street to get money out of the local cash machine with a long flowing strapped bag hanging around my waist with only three or so items within, which isn't particularly practical I feel.
This is where waist packs, such as the Freetoo Zippered Bum Bag, comes in handy for me, and why I was so eager to sample the product for personal use. In stead of having a shoulder strap man bag repeatedly hit me on my side whilst walking down the street, or have overflowing coat pockets, I can simply adjust the straps on the Bum Bag, and keep my phone, wallet and keys directly on my person. This is also extremely handy regarding security, as there is little to no chance of anyone digging into your bag without you seeing, maintaining your most needed items directly in your line of sight.
With the Freetoo Zippered Bum Bag, I can imagine that it would be most useful for runners and for gym goers (athletic people in general really), as you have the capacity to have your phone and keys on your person whilst jogging with your earphones in, without having any cumbersome bag around your shoulders or by your side. As mentioned above, it is intended to be fitted to your waist size via the adjustable strap, and has two pockets on the front; one having a larger capacity for phones of less than 5.5 inch screen sizes (especially handy for the newly released iPhone 6 Plus in particular), and the other front fluorescent green-lined zipper having a smaller capacity for keys, cards, et cetera. What is great for runners especially is that the meshed bigger back pocket, made of breathable net fabric, can additionally house your phone whilst having the ability to keep your earphones in place via an exclusive corner opening, so there is no reason why you could not listen to music during your jogging session (again, also handy for people who like to use such equipment in the local gym).
The Freetoo Zippered Bum Bag, having a black and fluorescent green colouring, is as aesthetically pleasing to the eye as it is practical for use in daily life; and the high grade neoprene with breathable net fabric makes the item very comfortable when strapped to your person. It is suggested to hand wash the waist pack, with the product having a total net weight of 83 grams, being a strapped bum bag for consumers who have waist sizes from 30-43 inches. The main pocket with meshed breathable fabric has a length of 9.5 centimetres, with the front smaller one being a rounded 8cm, having a reflective green fluorescent strip on the zipper itself for dark and nighttime outside activities.
Overall, I would say that the Freetoo Zippered Bum Bag is a brilliant addition to anyone's daily activities, who simply want a practical fitting bag to house their phones, keys, wallet, cards, amongst other such prominent items on their person whilst on the go; either during someone's outside sports regime, or for when you need to walk down the road to visit the local post office, for instance. I, personally, am more inclined to use this product for the latter, not being a very adamant sports enthusiast. However, the sheer practical function(s) that this Freetoo item delivers shows how such a product can be made for a variety of people, who require assistance in carrying on-person utilities for the modern age.
N.B. Whilst this review is for the Zippered Bum Bag, there is also an option to purchase the running belt variety of the product, which houses a larger capacity for items, with a bigger waist size strapping. This is deemed to be more appropriate for sporting activities, being of a sleeker shape for running et cetera; albeit without the more aesthetic qualities that the Zippered Bum Bag offers in my personal opinion of using the product.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Well Crafted and Practical Writing Pad/Tablet that is Recommended for Home and Office Usage Alike!, 12 Dec. 2015
I was approached by the KINGFOM company a few weeks ago to request an honest and unbiased review for their A3 Writing Pad/Tablet, having been given a free sample to test for my writing activities.
Being an avid writer and subsequently getting into the Amazon reviewing field, I have always had trouble in finding the exact suitable place to write; both on a personal and professional scale. In fact, since Autumn of 2010, I have been a student at the Open University, studying the arts and humanities (mainly within the field of linguistics) via distance learning in order to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities. Additionally, I like to keep a paper-based diary to house my innermost thoughts, and partake in a few long distance learning courses for work, such as my current NCFE Level 2 qualification in the Safe Handling and Administration of Medication, working presently as a Healthcare Assistant for a local care establishment.
Because of living in a household with a total of three individuals that have varying work schedules throughout the day, it is extremely difficult to find the exact time to sit down and write with a clear head, in the appropriate spot, and with the correct writing utilities. Usually I write when my housemates are either working, with one of them working night shifts (which is brilliant for the lone writer!), or when I can catch some alone time at the weekend, which is very few and far between indeed! Presently, I have found a seat at the dining table to compete my coursework, Amazon reviewing and other such writing activities; either that, or I have a portable laptop/writing tray that I find most useful when sitting on the sofa in the living/lounge area. However, having to be very careful about how much pressure I use to write at the table, being made of very find wood, can be extremely tedious! - and it is quite frustrating not having a fixed place to keep my writing tools on and to hold my paper down so I don't feel like a primary school child back at their communal desk area again!
Thankfully, all this faffing about has mainly stopped thanks to KINGFOM's A3 Writing Pad, which can be placed on any flat surface for extended usage, having a fixed place to keep a variety of writing tools and to keep your papers lying flat down to avoid any uncomfortable jolting of the pen. The Pad/Tablet is made of PU faux leather, being very soft to the touch and extremely comfortable when your pen is flowing rapidly during a long stint of writing activity. There is an additional magnetic clip which runs across the top of the Tablet, which keeps your paper(s) in place, and this is extremely useful when you have a lot of books and paper-based textbooks/activity folders to work with. The integrated anti-skid foam flannel backing makes it easy to immortalise thoughts into your diary, or when you have an idea for coursework so that your writing is easily readable at a later date when taking notes on the faux leather surface, which in turn is easily washable with non-abrasive cleaning products. The A3 sizing of the Writing Pad is just about right, having enough space to maintain a personalised writing area for professional office work and for personal home usage; dimensions being 18 inches length-wise, with a width of 13.5 inches and a thickness of 0.24 inches. Consumers have a choice of two different colour options, that being either black or brown, with the one sent to me (pictured in the attached photographs to this review) being the brown option; although the colouring on the two varieties aren't particularly too far apart.
All in all, I would say that the KINGFOM A3 Writing Pad/Tablet has been an excellent addition to our home, and it has made my personal and work-related writing activities a lot easier and accessible on a whim, with a comfortable space being provided to me for my hobby and passion that I have so long craved for.

Solar Lights Outdoor 8 Bright LED, LEORX® 160 lm Wall Sensor Light Security Lighting Motion Wireless Waterproof Lamp

4.0 out of 5 stars A Practical and Security Minded Addition to the Energy Saving Household; Ideal for Outdoor Lighting Solutions!, 9 Dec. 2015
I was approached by the LEORX company to offer an honest and unbiased review for their Solar Motion Light, and agreed to receive a discounted sample in order to do this.
I must start this review by saying that I, myself, am not an avid buyer of outdoors items, and have never really had the opportunity to buy items such as this due to previously not owning much of a garden to decorate. However, I have recently moved out of home (i.e. the big leap from moving out of the parents' nest!) and am now residing with two very dear friends of mine, with the three of us renting the old house that one of my housemates actually grew up in; so he knows the house pretty well and has done a lot with it renovation-wise in order to make a home for himself (and, in turn, for us too!).
With him being a teacher and apparently sitting at a desk for most of the day (not to say all teachers do this of course! - from personal experience I can tell you that!), he wanted a hobby that basically kept him physically occupied, so he turned to gardening, making the garden that we had inherited into a much more relaxing area to be in, as opposed to the pit it was when the house was a student hire-for-let property (*insert smirky face here!*)! We now have some lovely orchids, apple trees and a vast array of different foliage, fencing and patio furniture to brighten up the area, especially in the summer period (and living in England, this isn't for very long!). With this in mind, he has frequently bought various solar-powered lights that I have simply wavered off as being an impulse purchase for his hobby. However, I now see that these are quite handy when having to go out into the garden at night to do various chores, especially considering that we have an old cavalier dog who finds it difficult to get around in the dark, so lights such as these really aid in helping all of us to find our way around on a dark night or dull day. Additionally, having a brightly lit outside area does have a knack of providing natural security from passing strangers who may have potential for criminal intent; and in fact I do know from first-hand experience how certain people pray upon houses that look unoccupied at a certain time of night for the intention of robbery, and in some cases to be physically violent towards the occupant(s).
This particular model (LS08), having 160 lumens with 8 LED bulbs at 1.6 wattage, identifies whether it is day or night with a high light delay of approximately 15-30 seconds, and conserves solar energy for when it is needed to be in use, with a 3.7v 2200mAh internal lithium battery. The solar charging time is approximately eight hours or so, having to be charged in a highly lit area for when needing to be used, and having an equal working time of eight hours approximately. The handy thing with this particular model is that a key pin is included in order to turn the sensor light on or off (obviously being kept off when in transit to the consumer), so that no power is wasted needlessly, and the light will not be subsequently over-used and burn out too quickly, as so many other company models seem to do so.
We have placed the solar light in our outside conservatory area; basically a little area between the kitchen and the back door which holds the washing machine and tumble dryer in, and it comes on nearly automatically when motion is detected walking towards it (as previously stated 15-30 seconds), having a PIR sensor angle of 120 degrees with a distance of 3-5 metres. This is invaluable to when late night washing needs to be completed or when the dog needs to go outside, as the stored up solar energy from within the panel brightens up the room quite beautifully and with a much needed practical function. It does come with installation screws and two expansion pillar-hinges in order to bolt it onto either the ceiling or an adjacent wall panel; however, we have simply placed the light panel on the window frame sitting neatly next to our domestic appliances, and this seems to work just as good. In fact, I am now thinking of getting the same solar panel/light that the LEORX company offers for my parents' home, as the outdoor light can sometimes cause the electrics to short circuit. Additionally, I would feel so much better in the knowledge that their house is at least visible to passing strangers, due to the area that they currently reside in having a widely known reputation for being particularly rowdy and open to possible burglary.
Aesthetically speaking, the LEORX Solar Motion Sensor Light is your average triangular shaped panel, having a material body of ABS plastic and dimensions of 14x10.5x5 cm; nicely fitting into any indoor/outside area that requires a little more lighting at specific intervals, without having to use electrical power to do so - especially considering the present rise in electricity and gas utilities within UK homes. It states to be waterproof with a waterproof rate of IP65, obviously being handy when placing the panel in an outside location on a permanent basis and for times of heavy rain downpour. The item itself comes packaged neatly into a small box with a user manual included, and aforementioned screws/bolts for attaching the panel to a ceiling or wall in your desired placement area.
Overall, I would say that the LEORX Solar Motion Sensor Light (Model: LS08) is a brilliant addition to an ever-growing population of energy saving household owners and tenants, that is carefully crafted and sold by a company offering great customer satisfaction; stating to be easily contacted should any problems arise with the product at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Unique Piece of Male Jewellery that Will Not Weather - Promising Stainless and Sturdy Quality!, 3 Dec. 2015
Colour Name: Option C

I was approached by the Layla Jewellery company a couple of weeks ago asking for an honest and unbiased review in exchange for a sampling of their product; this being the Otamia branded Male Titanium Elements Pendant.
I must admit that, during my school days, I went through the usual phase of rebellion, and part of this was to branch away from my Christian school's religious pushing and to take an interest in Wicca. This, of course, involved wearing the various necklaces and pendants from spiritualist shops in order to show off my new spiritualist side; most notably the five-point pentagram to represent the five elements that most Wiccans use as a means to identify each other with, and to keep the reasoning behind their beliefs close to them. This is what drew me most to this particular pendant when offered for sampling. Even though I have since become more agnostic in my beliefs over time, I can still appreciate and explore my inate spiritual side now and again.
The pendant itself is made of 316L Stainless Steel Titanium, and has an accompanying chain that is 24 inches in length, and 3.5mm in width, with lobster claw clasps. The box chain itself is particularly heavy, but of course this suitability comes down to preference. I would personally have liked the chain to be a bit less cumbersome and more lightweight, plus a little shorter for a better fit so as not to have the necklace too loose around the neck. There are indeed other chains to buy singularly on the market if this is your personal preference also.
The company states that they use Titanium Stainless Steel in their products so as to avoid any unnecessary rusting or corrosion, being highly resistant to changing environmental conditions. This means that after long and heavy periods of wearing the necklace, it hopefully won't lose any of its shine or lustre, which so much cheaper jewellery products seem to frequently suffer from.
The Celtic-esque looping of the pendant's design is very unique (being six-sided as to the usual five in Wiccan lore) and exudes quite a Druidic feel upon setting eyes on it, making this a striking addition to any man's jewellery collection. The company does offer other designs which incorporate skulls, crossbones and Chinese-like mythical figures, which have been labelled 'Colour Options: A-D' on the top of this product page (the one I am reviewing here and which is in the attached photographs is Option C). I have been wearing my pendant sporadically for a couple of weeks now; although admittedly I will be looking into a more lightweight chain - again, this is more down to personal preference though, as I know a lot of people who do indeed like longer and heavier box chains when wearing such pendants such as this one.
Please note that the product page states the buyer will receive a gift box which accompanies the pendant upon purchase, which makes it a possible ideal gift for a variety of occasions. However, I received mine in a clear polythene bag with no boxing at all. This may, of course, be down to me being an Amazon reviewer and not being an actual paying consumer for the company's product. That being said, I would most definitely contact the company first prior to purchase in order to avoid any misunderstandings, as it does clearly state that the buyer will receive the item in a gift wrapped box for special occasions.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Lovingly Crafted and Presented Protective Phone Backing Case; Albeit Somewhat Over-Pacakged for its Intended Purpose!, 29 Nov. 2015
I was approached by the Turata company a couple of weeks ago to provide an honest and unbiased review for their new phone case for both their product page and the Amazon community at large.
Having just recently upgraded by phone from a relatively small (with surprisingly little battery life!) iPhone 5 to an iPhone 6 Plus, I have been roaming around the Amazon vaults in order to find a suitable case. Being an Amazon reviewer, I have been approached by a few companies now who need reviews for iPhone 6 (Plus) cases with a variety of features and which have different material casings. This casing from the Turata company is of the plastic clip-in with faux leather backed variety. It is very simple and understated, but quite beautifully crafted with a soft to the touch lining, and has the Turata brand name on the back with easy access to the camera and relevant buttons needed to operate the device, as well as a visible window for the Apple logo.
The case itself comes in a lovingly crafted box with a little pouch bedding for the product to sit in, having a very kind message from the Turata company promising customer satisfaction on the inside. This makes it an ideal gift for someone as a Birthday or Christmas present due to its evidently professional allure. However, I can't help but think that the box itself promises a phone casing with many more features than are present with this model, being a simple backing case without any major practical features other than its presentational value. That being said, it is a very nice phone casing with a lovingly crafted finish with lots of thought going into its presentation and overall study backing protection. I have been using mine for about a week now and am thoroughly pleased; although I would be lying if I said that I wasn't holding out for an iPhone case with a bit more practical functionality to its making.
The case shown in the attached photographs to this review is of the pink coloured iPhone 6 Plus variety; however, there are a plethora of other colour options to choose from, including hot pink, black, blue, brown, white and the aforementioned pink. Additionally, the case can be sized for the IPhone 6 and 6 Plus (S), and the Samsung Galaxy S6/Edge phone models.
With a twelve month guarantee from the company and a sturdy design to protect against minor damage and weathered conditions, the Turata leather hard-backed phone case is a nice idea for a simple vintage casing for the above phone models as a protective backing for your mobile device without any of the optional features that come with other casings, namely any card holders and a kick stand for viewing visual media, (which I personally always find handy whilst on the go). That being said, I can imagine it would make a nice stocking filler gift and I can honestly say that the company has tried very hard in making sure that their product is made and presented in the most visually compelling way.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Beautifully Crafted Wristband Generating Negative Ions to (Somehow!!) Combat a Variety of Bodily Ailments!, 25 Nov. 2015
I was approached by the Satori company in order to provide them and the Amazon community at large with an honest and unbiased review for their Negative Ion Wristband/bracelet, and I have seen some more than surprising results!
Ion power bracelets have been seen on the wrists of both pro athletes and consumers alike. Those who wear them have reported that putting one on makes them feel more powerful, improves coordination, and even uplifts their mood! Manufacturers claim that the bracelets work by releasing negative ions into the atmosphere around the wearer.
The question is though: what is a negative ion and what good does it do? Here’s a quick brush up on some general chemistry that I have come across: atoms are made up of a nucleus containing protons and neutrons as well as electrons (which orbit around the nucleus). Protons have a positive charge while electrons have a negative charge (neutrons have no charge). Atoms that have the same number of protons and electrons are said to be neutral: that is, they have no net positive or negative charge. A neutral atom that has gained or lost an electron is an ion. If an atom has lost an electron it is a positive ion, whereas an atom that has gained an electron is a negative ion. (Don't worry! - It's hard for me to keep up here as well!)
Negative ions exist in nature all around us. It may be surprising to learn that they are associated with places that people tend to feel are rejuvenating: waterfalls, beaches with strong waves, or the air after a heavy or hard rain. As the free-floating negative ions are inhaled and reach the bloodstream, they are believed to boost serotonin levels. Increased serotonin levels could help to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, while boosting mood and energy. This may be why the allure for the ion power bracelet is so compelling: who wouldn’t want to feel as refreshed as they do waking up on the side of a clear mountain after a rain storm or serene as watching a sunset on the beach with the surf crashing on the shore?
However, research on the bracelets reveals that the ion power bracelet may not be able to deliver the actual negative ions to the bloodstream of their wearers. In more than one study, several types of negative ion bracelets have shown to have no effect on various performance qualities, such as strength, flexibility, endurance, or balance. Medical directors and other such influential people in academic circles have stated that they do not believe that these bracelets have a scientific proven ability to improve strength, coordination, or peace of mind as many manufacturers claim. That being said, even a placebo effect is still an effect!
With the Satori Negative Ion Wristband, there is a charge of 1200CC emitting from the attached Titanium and Geranium, which makes it extremely powerful in delivering the therapeutic properties that are said to come about via the above research. Coming in a beautiful gift box and placed around a velvet pillow, it makes a beautiful gift for someone who may have trouble with joint pain or restlessness in general. The wristband itself is a very professionally made product, with a great fashionable quality, which my housemate has indeed got a lot of use out of.
Being a sceptic at first to this type of therapy for anything medically related; upon receiving this item, I gave it to my housemate who has acute arthritis in his left hand, which has also been exacerbated by a bike fall earlier in his life. At the age of 46 now, he has always had trouble with pain in his hand, especially with change in the weather, so I was not particularly holding out a lot of hope for any therapeutic qualities coming about by wearing this wristband. However, believe it or not, after a few days of wearing it, he was adamant that he had experienced little to no pain at all in his hand for the first time in a long time. He is now wearing it on a permanent basis due to its apparent pain relieving effects; additionally having a unique aesthetic quality as piece of male jewellery that is not too cumbersome and being able to fit the wristband comfortably to the wearer's appropriate wrist size.
I, myself, suffer from acute blood flow problems and anxiety, having been diagnosed with Very Severe Aplastic Anaemia about ten years ago (in essence, what people would call Bone Marrow Failure), which I have received appropriate Western treatment for and am now in remission. Due to the qualities that surround the Satori Negative Ion Wristband, I am presently giving this alternative therapy a go after being extremely sceptical regarding such products. With sleep and anxiety problems, as well as a lot of fatigue being an ongoing issue due to an ongoing low blood count, being indicative of my condition, I understand that such a product would not be able to fully cure my medical predicaments. However, giving it a chance to alleviate a little of my restlessness can't hurt at all, as such wristbands on the market are in facf not harmful in the slightest according to scientific research on the matter. I believe that I have the capacity to be in a better frame of mind with the aid of the Satori wristband; maybe due to blood flow increase somehow or mood elevation - I honestly don't specifically know! That being said, I am probably thinking that my housemate would get much more use out of such an item with its apparent pain relieving properties (and it looking a lot better on him! - I don't suit male jewellery often unfortunately!). I do not know if the benefits being seen are indeed based on scientific fact, or a placebo-like effect for the wearer. However, with the Satori Negative Ion Wristband's aesthetic quality in itself being a great incentive to purchase, I would most definitely suggest giving this item as a gift for someone who appreciates male jewellery, and who may also have a specific ailment that the wristband could have the potential to alleviate.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshingly Healthier Option for Maintaining your Daily Fluid Intake with Complete Natural Flavouring!, 20 Nov. 2015
I was approached by the founder of the InfuseFruit company a few weeks ago now, offering to give me the chance to sample their product for free; that being their Premium Infuser Water Bottle, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review to be posted onto their product page for the Amazon community at large.
I have to admit that I had not seen this type of water bottle before; having simply seen the generic Slazenger brand with a pull cap, or the see-through varieties that are the product of many sports companies in the UK nowadays. When seeing this Infuser Bottle, I immediately saw the practical function that it holds; namely providing naturally flavoured fruit water whilst exercising and/or undertaking various sports activities, without the need to stick with the many sweetened brands of water or energy drinks on the market that may not appeal to the more health conscious individual. I, myself, attempt to stay in shape by doing some small cardio training at home using my housemate's gym equipment, though admittedly I am a big fan of the Slendertone ab toning belt! I don't particularly partake in any outdoor sports activities apart from night walking, when I like to clear my head of the world's stresses; although, that being said, I did used to jog a lot a few years ago when I did not get so out of breath as I do now. Whilst jogging and exercising in general, it is always important to keep hydrated, and it is so easy nowadays to simply rely either on the bright coloured energy drinks that usually have more calories in than you are attempting to burn off, or plain water in an old plastic cola bottle. This is where these Infuser bottles seem to come in very handy; and the InfuseFruit company have provided an aesthetic and practical way of keeping one hydrated during sports activities or simply throughout the day as an all natural alternative to the mass sports drinks on the market or plain water that can sometimes become a plain and boring habit.
The method that the Premium Infuser Water Bottle uses is to simply place chopped fruit, vegetables and/or herb flavourings as you so desire into the infuser tube that is placed into the bottle with fresh water inside; thereby favouring your water via a true natural method, knowing exactly what is going into your infusion without any chemicals or sweeteners et cetera. The bottle is then best left to infuse inside a fridge for a couple of hours, or whenever you seem appropriate, and is ready to be used when you so desire; either taking it as a means of hydration during sports activities and/or exercising, or by simply using it as an alternative method to maintaining required fluid intake throughout the day (myself probably leaning more towards the latter!). The bottle has a light green coloured gripper on its side, and has a pop-up lid that is kept in place by a rounded spring loop, with an insulating sleeve of the same colouring additionally being provided in order to avoid any condensation on the outside that may come about in certain conditions. This leak-proof bottle has a capacity of 900ml of fluid and is 100% BPA free in its eco-friendly Eastman triton composition, making the product very sturdy and professionally built.
Upon logging on to the InfuseFruit official website, the buyer can register their Infuser Water Bottle and subsequently receive an ebook suggesting various recipes for the consumer to try, which include many suggested concoctions such as a lemon and lime flavouring and, what I consider to be my personal favourite, the strawberry/blueberry/blackberry combination. That isn't to say that you must stick to these particular recipes, as the Infuser Bottle can be used with a wide variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs to create very many concoctions which can be altered the way you so wish.
When attempting to wash the bottle, it is recommended by the company to wash by hand and not place into any dishwasher due to the nature of the item's material composition, plus selected recipes and suggestions on how best to utilise the product can be found on the company's many media site pages, such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Overall, I found it quite surprising how the InfuseFruit Premium Infuser Water Bottle can be used in so many ways in order to spruce up the way in which one can appreciate the recommended daily intake of water, and the sports enthusiasts out there no doubt understand the practicality that such an item can offer. I would most certainly recommend this Infuser Bottle as an aesthetic and functional way of easily making your own naturally flavoured water for the health conscious individual who appreciates quality in craftsmanship and creativity in the very many concoctions one can explore to keep the intake of water interesting and satisfying at the same time.
