TaoTronics Selfie Stick Bluetooth Remote Shutter Extendable Monopod for Smartphone
TaoTronics Selfie Stick Bluetooth Remote Shutter Extendable Monopod for Smartphone
Offered by Sunvalleytek-UK
Price: £49.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly small, 29 Mar. 2015
I was shocked when I received this item at just how small the device is. It measures just under 20 cm when folder but expands to roughly four times that length. It is also extremely light making is ideal if you want to put the stick in a pocket or bag.

Unlike some selfie stick this one feels fairly robust. The telescopic arm does not feel like it will easily bend out of shape and extends and retracts easily. The stick operates via Bluetooth and proved easy to pair with my Android phone.

Overall, a good quality and easy to use device.

5.0 out of 5 stars An effective phone cradle, 29 Mar. 2015
This TaoTronics car mount is designed to fix to the dashboard, the windscreen or the air vent. This is done by using one of two attachments that clip onto the back of the phone holder. Whichever you choose the mount affixes really well, leaving you assured it will not fall off whilst you are driving.

The phone cradle also provides an excellent hold on the phone, my phone has a 4.7” screen and the fit is excellent. However, the device can take a range of phones up to a width of 3.7”. The phone holder will also rotate allowing you to use your phone in landscape mode. This is ideal if you want to use your phone as a Sat Nav. The design of the product is also good with a sleek black stand and a rubber pad to prevent scratching.

Overall, an excellent product that will be compatible with the vast majority of vehicles and smart phones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sticking Power, 29 Mar. 2015
This TaoTronics car mount, like many others, is designed to fix to either the dashboard or windscreen. I have previously had a couple of these mounts and found that they are constantly falling off as you are driving. However, given the level of grip that this TaoTronics mount provides I don’t think that will be a problem in this case.

The phone holder provides an excellent hold on the phone, my phone has a 4.7” screen and the fit is excellent. However, the device can take a range of phones up to a width of 3.8”. The phone holder will also rotate allowing you to use your phone in landscape mode. This is ideal if you want to use your phone as a Sat Nav. The design of the product is also good with a sleek black stand and a rubber pad to prevent scratching.

Overall, I have been very impressed with the device. It is not the cheapest on the market but the fact that it doesn’t constantly fall off, in my view makes it worth the extra money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 29 Mar. 2015
Most phone holders attach to the dash or windscreen, but this one attaches to the air vent. The grip provided by the holder is excellent, it clips securely into the air vent and the arms on the cradle adjust to provide an excellent level of grip. I have tried it with both a Motorola and Samsung phone and both feel secure. The cradle also features a rubber pad to prevent the phone from being scratched.

Overall, a very nice product that does exactly what it is designed to do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable product but confused description, 28 Mar. 2015
As a lightweight cover for your laptop this is an inexpensive and functional product. The stitching is fairly well done and the zip opens wide enough to make it simple to slide your laptop in and out.

However, the product description as other have pointed out is inaccurate. The case is only water resistant not waterproof. Further whilst the case does features a degree of padding it is limited and I do not believe will provide much ‘shock absorption’.

In addition the case has a strong smell when first opened. This does fade over time but some people may find the smell unpleasant.

Overall, it is not a bad product – just not the product it purports to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes a great gift, 26 Mar. 2015
This dummy holder comes packaged in a lovely yellow / gold mesh bag making it ideal as a gift. The toy itself is soft and comes with a good quality dummy. It is however a larger size dummy – I would have thought 6 months plus.

The dummy affixes to the toy using a press stud at the end of the dolphin’s snout. The grip is good and I cannot see the dummy accidentally coming off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact and Powerful, 23 Mar. 2015
This is a powerful battery powered security light. The light runs on 4 batteries and provides 300 lumens of illumination for 20 seconds. The light is activated via a sensor on the front of the light. The sensor is reasonably but not excessively sensitive.

How bright is it? 300 lumens would not normally produce a massive amount of light. The average 60W incandescent light bulb will give out about 900 lumens, however that is omni-directional. This 300 lumens is focused at one point and results in a bright light ideal for security purposes without draining the batteries rapidly.

The light is housed in a black plastic case which so far has proved to be perfectly waterproof. The light is easy to install, and all the fitting are provided. It took me about 10 minutes to put it up and I would imagine that that anyone with basic DIY skills and a decent drill will have no problems.

Overall, I have been very pleased with this light. It provides a good level of light, is easy to put up and does not require cabling or an electrician. The only issue is how long will the batteries last. TaoTronics estimate up to 3,600 activations – I would guess this translates as every three to six months. I will update my review when I have to change them and give a more accurate insight.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great little light, 23 Mar. 2015
This TaoTronics LED light is solar powered, and is ideal for use in areas where you cannot run power cables. The light provides a good level of illumination; it is not as bright as many of the floodlights people use, but is more than sufficient to avoid steps or other objects.

The shape of the light makes it ideal for placing over doors. I have placed mine over the kitchen door and it is bright enough to clearly illuminate the step and surrounding area. Also being solar powered I was able to install the light myself rather than having to get an electrician in. In all it took about 10 minutes to put up and that included the time to change the drill bit in my drill. The light comes with all the fittings to install it and I would imagine that anyone with basic DIY skills and a decent drill will have no problems.

The light has a modern, sleek design and so far appears to be coping with the British weather well. It has done nothing but rain for the last few days and I can see no sign that water has permeated the casing of the light.

The run time of the light is good. It is still providing light in the mornings after 11 hours of running time. It then recharges during the day.

Overall, a very nice little unit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value, 23 Mar. 2015
This is a good value laptop sleeve. It is made from neoprene, a soft rubbery material which has water resistant properties. The material is soft enough to ensure that is does not scratch the surface of the laptop or Macbook. The sleeve is a good fit with my Dell laptop, quite snug but easy enough to get the laptop in.

The colour is a dark black with a grey stripe and looks fine. Not the best looking case on the market but perfect acceptable and functional.

Neoprene does however have a strong smell when new. It is a rubbery, plastic smell, a bit like a new car. When I opened the plastic packet the sleeve came in the smell was very strong. However, the smell does dissipate over time. In my case it took about three days for the smell to disappear.

Overall this is a good value water resistant sleeve.

This TaoTronics LED light is solar powered, and is ideal for use in areas where you cannot run power cables. The light provides a good level of illumination; it is not as bright as many of the floodlights people use, but is more than sufficient to avoid steps or other objects in the garden.

The light comes with the appropriate wall fixings and is easy to put up. The unit is happily charging up during the day and provides low level illumination throughout the evening each time the PIR is tripped. It is currently running for about 11 hours a day and shows no sign of running out before daylight. How it will do with the very short days in winter I could not comment on.

In terms of the design the light is compact and has a sleek modern look. The case is well made and despite torrential rain over the weekend I can see no sign that it has penetrated into the unit.

Overall, I have been very impressed by this unit and it has been a welcome addition to our garden.
