5.0 out of 5 stars Good Sound Quality, 22 July 2016
These in ear headphones use Bluetooth to connect the headphones rather than the traditional wired approach. The headphones are very lightweight and easy to pair with a Bluetooth device. The range is estimated to be about 10m and that seems about right. The headphones are charged via a USB to micro cable (cable but not charger provided). The manufacturer estimates 7 - 8 hours listening time from each charge. I am finding that estimate is spot on with me getting around 7.5 hours from each charge. Listening time does depend on a number of factors including the distance from the Bluetooth device and the volume used so other users may get slight different results. The headphones take approximately 120 minutes to fully charge.

The headphones look good, with the black colour scheme and white writing. The shape of the earphones is also interesting.

These headphones use Bluetooth 4.1 This is a significant improvement, particularly for those users streaming from a 4G capable device. 4G and Bluetooth do not get along as their signals interfere, resulting in a weaker signal and shorter battery life. This was fixed between Bluetooth 4.0 and 4.1.

The general sound quality provided is very good. Sound is crisp and clean, with no perceivable distortion. Bass is lacking, but still probably more or less average for this type of headphone. However, if you are looking for high levels of bass you might be better considering a big over ear pair that feature a larger speaker. The volume on the headphones is also good, I personally found about 50% is loud enough, depending on the track and type of music. The volume adjusts well in nice steady increments allowing you to easily find the correct level. At full volume the headphones are surprisingly loud.

Overall, a lightweight product ideal for exercising. The sound quality is good, not the best on the market, but very acceptable given the current price level and the battery life is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 22 July 2016
This is a great item for the garden or beach. The air lounger arrived with its own storage bag, which doubles up as a carry bag.

The lounger itself is made from a heavy duty plastic that should prove durable and long lasting. To inflate the lounger follow the instructions printed on the side of the bag. As no tools are required so the lounger can be used anywhere.

Once inflated the lounger provides a comfortable seat / bed. We have had ours in the garden and it has proved to be a remarkably comfortable reading chair. The lounger does gradually deflate over time, but is good for a number of hours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for School, 22 July 2016
This is a nice little rucksack for school. The bag is fairly lightweight and the canvas feels durable. Stitching, finishing and the zips on the bag are all excellent. The zip appear to be particularly heavy duty.

The bag features a good sized main compartment, easily big enough for a laptop or a couple of files. It also has an excellent array of pockets, both inside the main compartment and on the outside of the bag. I particularly like the large pocket on the front of the bag that would be ideal for pan, pencils and other stationary items.

The bag has two handles on the two and straps on the back. The straps are padded and comfortable to wear. They are also adjustable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Android Box, 21 July 2016
This is a compact android TV box. Basically a small computer with a mobile phone CPU, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of flash memory. It is designed to stream video from a range of sources direct to a TV via a HDMI connection. However, despite being small it packs a lot in.

In the box is the TV box itself, the power lead, the remote, and a HDMI lead. No batteries are provided for the remote so you will need a pair of AAA

To get the most out of the box you are going to need to access more apps to sit alongside the preinstalled ones. They are available from the play store amongst other places. All the major streaming services are available including but not limited to, ITV Player, iPlayer, All 4, Demand 5 etc. In addition you may well want to add additional Kodi addons. A wide range of addons are available and although they are not simple to add, with the help of widely available instructions or video tutorials, they are not difficult either.

In order to make this process simple. I recommend attaching a mouse and keyboard. The box features one USB ports on the back and two on the side that can be used for flash memory drives or to attach a mouse and keyboard. Using the remote for this process is both difficult and time consuming, with a mouse and keyboard it is simple.

The box can connect to the internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet cable. I have connected via a power line adapters and the streaming speed is excellent. I have also connected Via Wi-Fi and the speed was reasonable despite only not having the strongest of signals.

In addition to the video streaming the box can also access the internet, be used for games or play video and music files stored on a hard drive or USB stick. The box supports a wide variety of formats including MKV (the blue ray format), AVI, WMV and MP3 / MP4. Play is quick and easy. Simply attach the memory, browse for the file and play. It is really simple.

In terms of how this box stacks up against others, the extra RAM makes a difference to the responsiveness of the unit and it seems to buffer less. However, I might just have been lucky with the internet connection being exceptional stable at the moment. The extra flash memory allows more programmes to be stored, but otherwise makes little difference.

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective, 21 July 2016
This is a highly effective and lightweight hose pipe. It expands with the water pressure and contracts again once you have finished with it. The hosepipe comes with all the required fittings and a 9 setting spray nozzle.

The hosepipe is easy to attach and proved highly effective both for watering the garden and for washing the car.

On slightly negative note the hose pipe does not feel as sturdy as some I have owned and may be more prone to splitting or puncturing. However, so far this has not proved to be an issue and I will update my review should I have difficulties later.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good little camera, 21 July 2016
This is a well-made and easy to use security camera / baby monitor. The camera comes with a power lead and bracket so you are able to get a basic setup immediately. You have three options in terms of viewing / recording. Direct to a micro SD card, over the internet or via wi-fi.

To run it over the internet, take the Ethernet cable and connect it to the router. This may involve a Powerlink adapter if the camera is a significant distance from the router. Alternatively you could connect it to the router via wi-fi providing the signal is strong enough and you had the required equipment.

The camera can also record directly to a micro SD card. No card is provided, but it will support up to 128GB. I have used a 32GB San Disk, and had no issues with the recording. This is certainly the easiest way to use the camera.

Third you can stream directly from the camera to a smart phone or tablet. This is relatively straightforward, and does not drain the battery as much as you would expect. However, it is streaming HD, so you need a strong connection.

Picture quality is very good, not the full HD movie experience but more than good enough to serve its purpose. The motor to pan and tilt the camera is quiet and the delay on the picture is minimal. On the downside the camera features no zoom, but I am not surprised at this price.

The camera also features a two way audio option allowing you to listen and respond. I found the microphone to be reasonable, not the most sensitive but OK especially if you are relatively close to it. The speaker is quite good and delivers clear audio, at least for speech.

Overall, a really good little camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as well as the original, 21 July 2016
This is a replacement power supply for an Xbox one. The pack arrived simply packaged in an eco-friendly brown cardboard box. No instruction were provided, but it is obvious what to do with it.

The kit is roughly the same size and shape as an original power supply, a fraction larger I would say but not significantly. In terms of operation is works just as well as an original power supply and I have no issues with its operation. Price wise this is cheaper than an original power supply.

Alcohol Tester, Professional Breathalyzer with Fuel Cell Sensor and LED Diplay
Offered by Xintop
Price: £42.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A good little unit, 20 July 2016
This breathalyser is both compact and easy to use. The breathalyser runs on a rechargeable lithium ion battery and is recharged using the standard USB to micro USB lead provided. The breathalyser comes with four mouth pieces and is simply packaged in a brown cardboard box.

The breathalyser has a clear electronic display that includes mg/l the standard way of measuring alcohol in the UK. The legal limit is 0.35 micrograms / litre.

To run the test simply breathe hard into the mouth piece for around five seconds until the unit vibrates. Then wait for your reading. The unit definitely indicates the level of alcohol, as when I tried the unit before and after drinking it correctly identified I was below the limit before going out and over afterwards. However, I would be cautious with the accuracy of the readings and err on the side of caution i.e. I would not assume a reading of just under the drink drive limit was accurate when compared to the police units.

The unit is also useful for those going to France where it is now a requirement to carry a breathalyser or face an on the spot fine of 11 euros. I believe this is also a requirement in some other European countries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Headlight, would be perfect if recharable, 20 July 2016
This headlight works perfectly well. It features six different modes. These are high, medium, low, and SOS plus two red light modes.

The light is comfortable to wear and LED provides an excellent level of illumination on the highest setting. I use these types of light for DIY, particularly when drilling in dark corners. They are also great for moving things about in the loft leaving both hands available to do the work. This one works as well as any I have. The headlight runs on 3 AAA batteries and a set of Duracell batteries are provided.

However, another headlight I own has a rechargeable lithium battery, removing the need to purchase batteries. This I think is the way forward for these type of devices, and the reason I have given it four not five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Well, 20 July 2016
This wireless BBQ thermometer works well. In the box you get the two units and the USB to micro USB cable to charge them. Charging took about an hour for each unit. Unfortunately only one cable is provided but it is a standard USB to micro USB.

The first unit is the transmitter. Simply attach the probe you want to use, the unit comes with two a BBQ probe and a meat probe. I have been mainly using the meat probe. Then simply place the probe, and put the transmitter in a safe location away where it will not get too hot. This then reads the temperature and displays it on the LED display before transmitting it to the other unit.

The second unit features another LED display and a wider range of functions. You can set the type of meat and a target temperature. You can also toggle between Fahrenheit and Celsius.

The two units can be placed a significant distance apart. Ours will happily cope from the bottom of the garden to inside or from the kitchen on the ground floor to upstairs.
In terms of use we have used the thermometer with both the BBQ and the oven. It works well with both for ensuring that meat is cooked to the right temperature without overcooking it. I have found it particularly useful for beef joints or steaks to prevent them overcooking.
