5.0 out of 5 stars HDMI streaming dongle - great gadget., 1 Jun. 2016
This product was received free from the manufacturer in return for an honest and unbiased review.

This is a useful gadget that allows you to put the display from your portable device (tablet, phone etc) directly onto you TV. It is a dongle that plugs into the HDMI input of your television, then uses your WiFi network to mirror the display on your device onto the television.

Included in the box: V-linker HDMI Streaming Media Player, HDMI Extender Cable, Wi-Fi/USB Power Cable, Manual Book, Warranty Card.

I’m no tech expert, but even for me the set up seemed simple and I had it all connected and working in about half an hour. You need to connect the device to a USB socket to provide power, I don’t have one on the TV, but I do have a spare USB mains convertor so that wasn’t a problem. The extendor cable was sueful as it allowed the unit to be placed somewhere I could get at it rather than stuck in the back of the television.

Once set up it was dead easy to use, it simply mirrors whatever is on the screen of your device. This means that when watching films over the internet I can have the laptop near me and can control it rather than having it linked to the television with a mass of wiring. I really like it.

A great gadget, 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nightingale in ear headphones - comfortable, sound good, look good., 1 Jun. 2016
This product was received free from the manufacturer in return for an honest and unbiased review.

These are a pair of remarkably good in ear headphones.

From the off they create a good impression. I always feel reassured when a manufacturer takes the effort to package and display their product with care and attention to detail. In this case the phones are in a clear plastic box and mounted like a sculptor would mount his latest piece in an art gallery, obviously with pride and with an eye for showing it off to its best advantage. The packaging is robust as well, so no chance of damage in the post.

Once you decide to open it up and spoil the rather lovely visual effect, what you find is a pair of ear bud head phones, with a black lead. There is a microphone on the lead in a matt gold finish. The speakers also have a matt gold finish and the silicone buds are a translucent grey. The jack is a straight 4 pole 3.5 mm audio jack, again with a gold finish. It all looks superb. I love the understated and tasteful yet modern looking design and colouring. All is made of metal, and feels pretty good in the hand.

In the box is a cloth storage pouch and, in addition to the medium pair mounted on the phones when they arrive, three sets of spare silicone buds. That’s a small, medium and large.

OK, so they look good. What about the practicalities? The buds are comfortable. They stay put when inserted, even when jumping around. The passive noise isolation is good, with little sound leakage. My standard test is to sit on a bus listening to the opening bars of Dire Straits’ “down to the waterline”, with these buds I heard every nuance beautifully. The mix has a good but not overpowering bass and a decent high end. There is no distortion or wobble at low or very high volume. At high volume these are quite powerful and loud! So, sound quality is excellent.

The plug is a straight jack rather than an L plug, this is the only slight flaw with the design, as I find L plugs last a lot longer and I much prefer them. However, this is minor and not going to detract from my positive review. 5 stars in total.

5.0 out of 5 stars Electric impulsive wave body shaper - shockingly good., 1 Jun. 2016
This product was received free from the manufacturer in return for an honest and unbiased review.

This is a gadget that aims to help reduce and sculpt body fat via the application of small electric shocks. The unit has a control and an electrode, joined by a coiled telephone style cable. Supplied are several sticky pads/electrodes to adhere the unit to the body. You can set either pulsed, continuous or erratic ‘waves’ and the intensity of the waves to suit you. The user interface is friendly and allows you to adjust the settings easily. The device switches itself off after 15 minutes as a safety measure.

The shocks are not uncomfortable, at the highest level they feel like a tens machine, or someone flicking you. It is small and discrete and easy to put on. It is easily recharged via the supplied USB cable. I have used it while working at my desk, though for best results it should be used during exercise. I haven’t had any noticeable effect after 2 uses in one day, I will update after more useage to tell if it has any benefit.

Discrete and easy to use, 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars non cotat digital infrared thermomenter - works well and is well designed with some useful features, 1 Jun. 2016
This product was received free from the manufacturer in return for an honest and unbiased review.

This is an infrared thermometer gun. Simply point at the surface you wish to measure the temperature of, and hey presto, the temperature is displayed on the easy to read LCD screen.

It measures a wide range of temperatures (from -50 to 550 deg Centigrade) and, in an improvement over other models, has an emissivity adjustor that allows you to correct for the light reflectance of the surface that you are measuring. A minor adjustment, and once you have the right settings you won't generally need to reset it, but for nerds like me who like accuracy it is a great idea.

For me it has two benefits over a traditional thermometer - firstly the temperature range, you can measure the temperature of very hot things or very cold thongs without having to touch them. Secondly the fact that you can measure from a distance, so I can check the temperature of pipework without having to get up a ladder. Very useful.

To allow you to aim the pointer there is a laser spot built in. This doesn't measure the temperature and can be turned off if you are in an environment where a stray laser could be a health hazard. A good feature.

It works well and is well designed with some useful features. 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tonbrux MXQPRO quad core TV box - Excellent., 1 Jun. 2016
This product was received free from the manufacturer in return for an honest and unbiased review.

This is an excellent and useful add on to my television.

Box contains TV box, mains adaptor with UK plug, HDMI cable, remote control and instructions.

This is a device that effectively turns your television into a computer, allowing you to view video from the internet or from USB devices.

I have a huge media collection stored digitally on various external hard drives, previously when I wanted to watch a film I had to connect the hard drive to the laptop, then the laptop to the television, a long winded process that left the front room a tangle of wires. This great box has 2 USB ports, so I can leave all the hard drives permanently connected, and allows me to essentially connect the drives to the telly and watch files from them without having to get the laptop involved. No tedious setting up every time I want to watch something, no massive tangle of wires. The native software on the box can handle most video formats, and plays them perfectly. Just select file, press play and away it goes.

Connecting the device to my Wi-Fi and turning it into a web browser was easy enough, and using it to watch I player and the like worked well.

The user interface is a little clunky, to type into the web browser address page or when searching on Google you need to call up a keyboard on the screen, then use a cursor controlled by the remote to select each key stroke. This was frustrating when trying to enter the Wi-Fi password, a mix of numbers, upper and lower case. It took about 10 minutes to enter a 16 digit code this way.

In all, it has a huge range of functionality, is easy to use for the non-tech savvy (I managed to get it up and running and I am definitely not very tech savvy), and for my purposes does very nicely.

The box has a fair range of input and output connectors, so should connect to most televisions. It has 2 USB inputs, an SD card reader and Wi-Fi. I use the HDMI output, and this works perfectly well.

5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars CCbetter 10000 mA h multifunction jump start and compressor - well designed, well made., 1 Jun. 2016
This product was received free from the manufacturer in return for an honest and unbiased review.

What's in the box: hard shell zippered case, about 21 x 15 x 7 cm. Inside is a power bank, compressor for tyre inflation, tyre pressure gauge and multitool, schraeder type valve adaptor, jump leads, mains plug for charging, car socket plug for charging, USB to micro USB lead, comprehensive instructions. After unpacking it all I was amazed that it came in such a small box and had trouble fitting it all back in! It does go though.

The pressure gauge is simple to use with a clear digital readout with adjustable units. Built in is a torch so you can see where you are putting the connector. There is also a useful tool kit built in with pliers, saw for cutting seat belts and a glass hammer. It runs off 5 included lithium cells. It is solid, and feels like it will last.

The power pack is excellent, with a socket for attaching jump leads or the compressor, and a 2 A USB socket for charging other devices. It ahs a read out with time remaining until the charge has run out at the current useage, and a torch built in. It is 10000 mA h, so will discharge at 10 A for 1 hour. Or 100 A for 6 minutes. or 400 A for 1 min 15 s. I have used it to jump start my Nissan Note, and the numbers definitely stacked up, and the car was successfully started. It certainly charges my MP3 player pretty well.

The compressor is run from the power bank, so easily transportable, unlike my last one that plugged into the car socket, and to do all 4 tyres was a pain as you kept having to move the lead around. This just picks up and moves. It will go up to 80 psi, more than enough for most cars. It's not the fastest in the world, but it gets there. I was particularly impressed with the valve adaptors so I could also do my bike tyres. THe power cable and the tyre connector are both stored in the compressor, making it a neat looking unit.

Both power bank and compressor appear to be made of durable materials, and look robust.

In all this is an excellent, well designed and well made piece of kit that will be a permanent part of my car from now on.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Litre hydration bladder - Well designed and made., 1 Jun. 2016
This product was received free from the manufacturer in return for an honest and unbiased review.

I have found in the past a bladder hydration pack to be indispensable while walking, or more importantly cycling where I want to keep my hands free. This is a particularly good and well designed type that has instantly replaced my (much) older one as a regular accompaniment on my out door activities.

The main part is a (silicone?) bag, approximately 40 cm long by 20 cm wide. You can either fill via the wide necked screw bottle top mounted on the front near the top, or by sliding the top clip off to allow the whole top of the bladder to be opened. THe fold and clip at the top are secure and watertight, which I was initially sceptical of. The bottle top is also water tight.

The hose is about 1 metre long, and held in a padded sleeve. One end clips into the outlet at the bottom of the bladder, the other has a bite valve with a small cap. The outlet on the bladder is watertight if the hose is not fitted, and the joint is water tight when the hose is in place. The bite valve is a good size and works easily. It looks durable.

There is apparently an antimicrobial coating in the bladder to prevent mould and other nasties building up. So far I have not had any problems. The water tastes OK when drunk from the bladder, no funny plasticy or musty flavour as I have had with my older unit.

In all a well designed and useful piece of kit. 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars ProGreen LED headlamp - Really good light., 27 May 2016
This product was received free from the manufacturer in return for an honest and unbiased review.

What's in the box: Light, USB charging cable, mains charger, batteries.

The light has three lamps, a large central light and two outriders. There is an elasticated strap that both goes round and over the head. At the back there is a battery compartment.

Getting going - Be very careful getting the batteries in the right way around. They do not have bumps at the positive end like A or C type batteries, and care needs to be used to get them in the right way. The battery compartment is accessed by peeling back the rubber cover. There is a charging port hidden under another rubber cover, simply plug in the charger of your choice. It's quite easy to get up and running.

The chargers - Mains charger has a UK plug and passes a PAT test. The USB charger is a great touch, it means I can charge this in the car. It (the USB plug) has a little LED display that is red when the batteries are uncharged and green when they are charged.

Fit and comfort - Fit is excellent with fully adjustable elasticated straps that will accommodate the smallest to biggest of hat sizes. I found the over and round head design very comfortable. The front plate with the light mounting is slightly curved and flexible, and fits against the forehead well. I didn't really notice the weight of the battery pack on the back.

Useage - pressing the button on the top cycles between steady central light - steady side lights - steady central plus sides - strobing central plus sides - off. Each light is blindingly bright and illuminates the area ahead well. With all three going it's like having your own portable sun. The light is mounted on a bracket that allows it to tilt up and down relative to the forehead giving maximum usability.

General - looks well made, battery life is pretty good (I've had it on for an hour continuous so far with no dimming). THe light housing gets a little warm but this is standard for this type of light and not warm enough to be a risk.

In all a really good light. 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 in 1 pen - a perfect gift., 27 May 2016
This product was received free from the manufacturer in return for an honest and unbiased review.

This would make an excellent gift for the gadget mad. Coming in a really nice plain aluminium presentation box, it is a pen with bsome bells and whistles.

The pen is 15 cm long, and the main part of the barrel is a black plastic hexagonal style. The grip is knurled aluminium, this screws to project the black ball point tip. The end of the pen has a touch screen stylus, this can be unscrewed and screwed over the pen tip end. Under the stylus is a reversible screwdriver head, with a flat tip and crosshead. Two sides of the hexagon barrel have a ruler, one in imperial, the other in metric. A third side contains a small bubble level.

The pen is nicely balanced for writing, thought the tip does have a habit of self retracting after a couple of lines. If the stylus is used on the pen tip end it is excellent. The rulers and level are a nice touch, and the screwdriver aspect useful. A perfect gift, especially with the plain presentation box.
