4.0 out of 5 stars Activity backpack, 26 July 2016
Length:: 3:41 Mins

You'll see in the video review I was kindly given the blue version of this backpack.

It's a nice looking blue and overall the bag feels well made. It's comfortable to wear and contains enough storage space for water and some snacks, but it's not the sort of bag to get if you want to carry day to day items such as laptops or tablets.

When you unpack this you'll find a solar charger and power bank stored in the backpack. The solar panel can be fitted to the outside of the pack and a USB cable threaded through to the bag. In use the panel provided enough power to stop my HTC M9 battery from dropping, but it didn't charge it while the phone was on.

The power bank does charge my mobile, even when it's on, so a good option is to leave the solar panel charging the power bank rather than your gadgets.

The main section contains a bladder allowing you to a decent amount of water. There is some room for a few additional items, snacks for example.

The backpack is comfortable to wear, it's a more compact design than I'm use to using. There are decent straps to keep it secured, although the solar panel and the hose both move around a fair bit.

Split the Party (Spells, Swords, & Stealth Book 2)

5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked the first you'll like the second, 24 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After finishing the first I was very interested in seeing what would happen next so got stuck into the second right away.

If you enjoyed the first book I'm sure you'll like the second as well. The characters have gone from pretending to be adventurers to accepting that's what they've become and this results in a lot more character progression. It's a good, well paced, story that, similar to the first, bookends the main story with a parallel story set in the 'real world'.

While I very much enjoyed the main story not much is done to advance the link between RPG world and our world, hopefully that isn't going to be a connection that's strung along indefinitely.

I'll certainly read the 3rd book if it comes out, hopefully that'll get stuck in to the worlds being linked a lot more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent mobile let down by poor video quality, 24 July 2016
Length:: 3:20 Mins

I've been evaluating this mobile for use at work and it's a budget friendly ruggedized smartphone aimed at those with an active lifestyle...or those who are just very clumsy!

I'ts is IP67 rated, so is dirt, dust and water resistant (it should survive 30 minutes under up to 1 meter of water), and this has resulted in the usual open ports being sealed off. So to charge this or use headphones you'll need to remove the stopper, and then need to ensure that's completely closed back up once done.

The makers have ignore the general trend of a plastic back for this budget blower, instead choosing to add a nice textured back, you'll see the red and black version in the video review.

At the time of review this ran Android 5.0.2 and it runs it very well. Alcatel have chosen to load the phone up with a lot of preinstalled apps that you likely won't want, fortunately these can be uninstalled and you'll need to do so in order to free up some storage space as this mobile fills up very quickly.

It's worth making room for games as the Go Play runs them really well, they looks great and are very smooth. The 5" screen is a good size for giving you room to use on screen controls while still being able to see the action.

The camera also performs well, you get a 5MP front facing camera and an 8MP rear facing camera.

Unfortunately the video quality was a big let down, it was choppy and not very good quality at all.

So low storage space and poor video quality are the main letdowns, but this is made up for by a very low cost for an otherwise decent 4G Android mobile with IP67 rating.

Lava BrightSounds 2 Lamp Portable Lantern, Bluetooth Speaker and Power Bank - Green
Lava BrightSounds 2 Lamp Portable Lantern, Bluetooth Speaker and Power Bank - Green
Offered by Lava | Sound & Vision
Price: £39.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely useful combination of ideas, 23 July 2016
Length:: 3:01 Mins

You'll see in the review video I was kindly given the green version to review, it looks great and looking at the colour options there is something to suit everyone.

Only the top section is coloured, the bottom section is an LED light. There is a nice carry handle which makes this really well suited for use out and about, it's much easier to carry than a standard Bluetooth speaker and it's not especially heavy either.

The BrightSounds 2 combines 3 functions you might need when off on an adventure, it's a speaker, light and gadget charger.

It comes with a USB cable and that can be used to charge the speaker or charge your mobile or tablet from the speaker. Note iPhone users will need to provide there own cable. It's not the fastest charger I've tried, but it does the job and saves you having to carry around an additional power bank.

The speaker is decent quality, it's got a good volume and is bob on for outdoor use, perfect for some campside music.

The LED lamp is also spot on, my camera has tried to compensate for the dark setting and bright light so it doesn't look as good in the video as it does in person, this provides a lovely soft glow that lights the surrounding area.

Popping the light on, holding it by the handle and get this playing some movie soundtrack and you'll want to go off and explore a dark forest!

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent quality that leaks out, 22 July 2016
Length:: 2:38 Mins

I was kindly give a pair of M06 headphones to review. These are a decent set of low cost, no frills, headphones.

You get the headphones, charging cable and aux cable, but no carry case or bag.

They're well padded and comfortable to wear, they stay firmly in place without acting like a vice on your head.

There are controls on headphone so you don't need to take our your phone, note these only work in Bluetooth mode, while you can use these powered down via the included aux cable you won't be able to use the controls.

The charging port has a flappy plastic cover that's rather annoying, in an odd design decision the aux in port doesn't have any sort of cover.

I've tried to demonstrate in the video review that these leak sound a fair bit, it'll be far less noticeable in an area with lots of background noise.

Decent set of headphones considering the low price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable, 22 July 2016
I gave this a go with it being available in the lending library. From the description I'd incorrectly thought of computer based RPGs when in fact it is based on old school board game RPGs...sort of. I don't want to give too much away so I'll leave it at that.

I'm not someone that reads fantasy at all, I lean more towards sci-fi, but I found myself being drawn into this very quickly. I really liked the characters, the story they go on, the development and changing of stereotypical roles and although the book has an ending it's one that makes you want to grab the second book right away (which I did!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good entry action camera, 21 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 3:26 Mins

Kindly given to me to review you'll see in the video review I have the black version of this is a compact GoPro style camera.

As well as the camera you get a wide range of accessories for different situations, for example helmet mounting, belt mounting etc. There is also a waterproof case included which has buttons on the outside that allow you to control the camera even when it's in the case.

It's easy to use but keep in mind it has a wide angle lens so isn't great for day to day recording, it is better suited to action shots such as mounted on a bike.

Photos are OK, this likely wouldn't replace your smartphone.

I do like the time lapse feature, get the camera in an interesting position and you can adjust how often photos are taken for some really interesting results. Note that the battery isn't brilliant (it is a tiny camera after all!) so to get the result you can see in the video I plugged this into a power bank, giving the camera more than enough battery power for hours and hours of time lapse recording.

There isn't a slow motion function on the camera, I've tried a very similar looking camera that did have this function, but it was also more expensive. Considering the very low price this is a good way to get started with action cameras to see if they work for you without spending a fortune.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact dash camera, 20 July 2016

Length:: 3:18 Mins

Please note: Due to file size limits when uploading to Amazon the video shown in the review isn't as high quality as you actually get, I'll put a link to a full HD version in the comments below.

Kindly given to me to review this the the most compact car camera I've ever tried.

The box it comes in isn't massive, so it was a surprise when I opened it to find such a dinky camera inside. As well as the camera you get manuals, a good length power cable and a USB cable.

The power cable features a small cover which, when opened, reveals a USB port allowing you to charge you mobile on the go, a really nice touch.

A first for me is that the power cable can plug into the screen holder instead of the camera. This is such a simple idea but it's brilliant, it means you can very easily take the camera out of the car without having to disconnect cables.

The small size means you get a small screen, but the menu is still easy to navigate and use. There are a lot of options so it's worth spending time checking out all the options.

Image quality is excellent, good wide angle lens that takes in multiple lanes and it captures lots of details such as number plates, road markings etc. The unit also does a good job at recording in car sound, I imagine this would be very handy if you were in an accident off camera, to hear what happened before the accident.

There isn't any GPS logging with this camera.

Great little compact dash cam.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good mouse, 20 July 2016
Length:: 3:06 Mins

Kindly given to me to review this is a great little gaming mouse.

The design feels good in the hand, it has the usual left/right and scroll wheel buttons on top along with two buttons that, by default, change the DPI setting.

When you change DPI setting the mouse light changes colour so you can check what you've got it set to.

On the left hand side are a couple of buttons that, by default, go forward/backward in a browser.

All of these functions can be changed if you install the included drivers. At the time of review I couldn't find these drivers on the Havit website so be aware you'll need access to a CD drive to install the software.

The mouse connects via an included USB dongle and when not in use this can be stored in the underside of the mouse. There is a USB cable included to charge the mouse, it plug in at the front, in between the left and right buttons.

The mouse feels good in the hand, it's a nice shape and I like the textured side sections. It's a little lighter than I'm use to, but if you are using this as a travel mouse perhaps that is a plus point for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chunky charger, 17 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 1:39 Mins

Kindly given to me to review this is one seriously chunky power bank, and it needs to be given the huge size of the battery.

The power bank comes with a cloth bag to store it in as well as a USB charging cable that is used to charge the power bank and can also be used to charge your mobile or tablet. Note this is a standard USB cable that's used by Android/Windows mobiles, if you're an Apple iUser you'll need to provide your own charging cable.

There is a little readout to show how much charge is left in the power bank, you'll get a good number of charges out of this (how many will depend on your mobile/tablet battery size).

Due to the enormous size of the battery this takes a loooong time to charge up, you'll need to leave this charge at least over night, if not for most of a day as well if charging from close to empty.

The glossy case is something of a fingerprint magnet and it's very heavy compared to other power banks I've tried, but it also provide a huge amount of power to charge your devices so is perfect for those worried about being away from a plug socket for a few days.
