4.0 out of 5 stars Very good sound and comfortable but different size earbuds not provided and a little annoying vocal indicators., 27 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Tecevo really seem to be making a name for themselves in the audio industry and I have tried several of their bluetooth speakers which have been really good value for money as well a superb sound quality. These headphones are no different.
The headphones come packaged with a Micro USB to USB charging cable, a carry pouch and a smaller pair of ear hooks. Like most rechargeable devices now-a-days, it comes partly charged already so you can use it straight out of the box. The cables are cleverly tucked into the ear hooks to keep them out of the way and are flexible enough to be comfortable whatever you are wearing. The ear hooks can easily be changed to smaller ones which are conveniently provided by unclipping the cable from them and snapping the new ones in place. The earpieces themselves are well thought out and the right earpiece has the forward/back track buttons which also double as volume buttons as well as a call answer button which also doubles as a play/pause button. The left earpiece has the on/off switch and micro USB port to charge them.

The headphones were easy to connect to my Iphone 5 and sound was (as I expected from Tecevo) extremely clear and full. The 'in the ear' ear buds were comfortable in the ear however no other sizes of earbuds were provided unlike many other headphones. One thing I did find annoying though was the voice that talks to you when using the previous/next track buttons and there did not seem to be any way of switching this function off. Strangely no vocal functions were added to the play/pause button or when using the volume up/down (you need to press and hold the previous/next track buttons for the volume functions to work). I would have much preferred a short beep to indicate back track and double-beep for forwards rather than vocal indicators.


Rechargeable Mini Engraver 2
Rechargeable Mini Engraver 2

3.0 out of 5 stars Works OK but no rubber base to prevent slipping, supplied with a 2 pin US plug and no attachments provided, 27 Feb. 2015
This mini engraver was supplied to me by the manufacturer in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I have used engravers before and own a Dremel corded engraver Dremel Hobby Engraver so was interested to see what this was like. First thing to point out (which is by no means a deal breaker) is that the engraver comes with a US 2 pin charger plug and not a standard UK plug. Not a problem but just something to note.

The other thing to note is that the engraver DOES NOT come with any attachments so you need to buy these yourselves. Pay particular attention to the attachment size as I initially bought the incorrect size and had to buy another one. I ended up with this set which worked perfectly 10pc diamond burr engraver engraving set rotary tool 150 grit 2.35mm shank TE631.

Once charged up, I tried the attachments which were simple to fit - You need to press and hold the metal pin at the base of the engraver and turn the head to unscrew and loosen the clamp, and then insert the attachment and reverse the procedure. The engraver has multiple speed settings which increase with each press of the power button and there are 6 settings. To turn it off, just press and hold the on/off button. The engraver sits comfortably in the hand however if you are engraving something delicate (like glass) or an intricate design, I would say that the engraver really needs a rubberised base to prevent it from slipping in your hand. I would have though that this would be a basic requirement but I guess it depends on what you are using it for.

There is something to be said for having a cordless engraver as this gives you a great deal of movement without inhibition of a cord. This engraver worked OK but you really need a rubber grip and for a UK market, a UK 3 pin plug. It's a huge shame that no attachments were provided at all especially given the high price tag. If you plan on using the engraver for things like wood, you may want to take a look at Dremel's engravers which have a 'hammer' type action and helps make a deeper engraving and cost over half as much.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable sound and comfort but awful boom mic., 27 Feb. 2015
These headphones were provided to me by the manufacturer for a fair and honest review.

I am a hardcore gamer on the Xbox one and the Xbox 360 previously (the list goes on....) and a heavy online gamer. I dabble in PC gaming but not much nowadays. The headset comes neatly packaged together with the wireless receiver, optical cable to connect to your console for perfect audio quality, USB to Micro USB cable to power the receiver and audio cable to connect to your controller.
The headset itself is pretty comfortable however and the ear pieces are large enough to accommodate most ears. The head rest is also comfortable (unlike my old Turtle Beach ones XP400's that seemed to sit in the air). Connection was pretty simple to my Xbox and sound was clear reasonably good. Although the microphone looks good, I thought that this was the worst planned part of the headset. The microphone actually comes in the box detached and you need to plug it in which is simple enough however there is very little movement in it that actually holds - what I mean by this is that if you bend it towards your mouth, it will spring back out nearly to straight out again. Unlike my Turtle Beach headsets, the boom does not remain in position to where you actually want it to. My team could hear however which means it works but is far from ideal.


Sivitec 2 m 4 Way Switched Extension Lead - White
Sivitec 2 m 4 Way Switched Extension Lead - White
Price: £9.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Too basic for the price - No indication of if a switch is on and no surge protection., 24 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a pretty basic 4 way extension lead but is lacking in some areas in my opinion. I always find extension cords handy especially when they have multiple sockets. This one has a switch for each socket however there are no markings on the switches to show whether the switch is on or off - as it happens down is on and up is off. Even the most basic 4 way switches have red painted on to signify the switch is on and more advanced ones have separate LED lights. Given the price I'm surprised that it doesn't even have surge protection to protect your devices.
It's actually expensive for what it is and you can get cheaper ones elsewhere if you search Amazon which will have LED lights for each switch and/or others that have surge protection for the same price.


Mudder® 2200mAh Electronic Cigarette Battery with Power Remaining Indicator and Power Protection System
Mudder® 2200mAh Electronic Cigarette Battery with Power Remaining Indicator and Power Protection System

4.0 out of 5 stars Good battery size and basic power left indicator but no Battery charger included, 23 Feb. 2015
This battery was provided to me by the manufacturer in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I have a number of batteries and have tried EGo ones but moved on to the Itaste MVP which is my current favourite and allows a variable power setting for stronger puffs. This battery by Mudder is pretty good with a large battery size but small in physical size. It works pretty much like the EGo's do with a simple on/off button that has a safety off feature (you press it quickly 5 times to switch on or off so that it doesn't go off by accident in your bag).
This battery is a little different as the on/off button doubles as an indicator to how much power is left in the battery and is colour coded however it would have been nice if the percentages were split into 4 ranges instead of 3. The unit seems pretty well built with a brushed metal outer design. I like that the button is also indented into the battery as well. It fit my Kanger Aerotank just fine with the vanity ring on but I'm still disappointed that no charger is included with the battery. A basic EGo charger will fit and charge the battery just fine though but does mean that if you're new to vaping, that you may not already have a charger at hand.


Oral B Pro 3000 White and Clean Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush
Oral B Pro 3000 White and Clean Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush
Price: £89.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Noticable difference to the basic Oral B toothbrushes - worth the money, 20 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've been using Oral B electric toothbrushes for ages and I've always been very happy with them. I used to use the basic Oral B electric toothbrushes that I used to get on the cheap from Boots but decided to try this one. I used to think that my old Oral B was good but I have noticed a difference with this one. I have sensitive teeth having gone to the dentist too often for fillings and such and also used to smoke. As a result my teeth are both sensitive and yellowy which I am hoping to deal with separately. This toothbrush (unlike my basic old one) not only oscillates but pulses as well which sort of imitates a gentle hammer effect on the teeth and literally attacking the plaque inbetween your teeth and I can really feel the difference when I glide my tongue over my teeth.
Like the other Oral B toothbrushes, the heads have a colour grading system that lets you know when you need to replace your toothbrush head as they naturally wear down. The toothbrush has 3 functions; the main 2 minute daily brushing; Gum care where it gently massages the gums to stimulate blood flow; and lastly the sensitive setting which I use and runs at a slightly lower speed than normal and allows me to effectively use sensitive toothpaste.


Mudder® PionTank 2.0 Bottom Dual Coils Airflow Control Rebuildable Clearomizer
Mudder® PionTank 2.0 Bottom Dual Coils Airflow Control Rebuildable Clearomizer
Offered by Mudder Online UK

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but get a Kanger if you're serious, 18 Feb. 2015
I actually prefer using my Kanger protank (IdealVape.com Genuine Kanger Protank 3 Dual Bottom Coil Clearomizer Atomizer Tank For Electronic Cigarettes) as it's far more sturdy and durable and well established. If you want a really cheap adjustable airflow clearmomizer to try out then this could be for you. In my week of use I've honestly had no issues with leakage as reported by other reviewers and I did make sure no liquid went into the incorrect areas of the clearomiser when filling it up with e-liquid. The clearmomizer is extremely light which might be a plus for some people but I prefer something more weighty in the hand.

Similar to the Kanger Protank, you can adjust the airflow through the clearmomizer which will ultimately affect your 'draw' and the whether you get a 'throat' hit or not by letting in either more air with your draw of vapour or not mixing any.

It's not bad but if you are serious about a clearmomizer I would definitely go for something like a Kanger which you can disassemble completely and customize. Not bad for the price though.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for making calls.but not great for listening to music, 10 Feb. 2015
This headset was provided to me by the manufacturer in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I have tried a number of bluetooth headsets in the past and this doesn't rank particularly high in them although it does look quite nice. The headset comes without the 'behind the ear' hook support attached and they kindly provide you with 2 different sizes in ear hook attachments which are very easily fitted on the earphone for either those wanting to use it on the left or right ear. If you look at the earpiece side of the headset, there are 2 protruding tubes at angles where the ear attachment goes. It also comes with a Micro-USB to USB charging cable which is pretty standard and the small microphone boom can be adjusted up and down but not sideways.

Connection to my Iphone 5 was simple enough by holding down the centre button (there are only 3 buttons on the headset) until the little LED light starts flashing red and blue and just select to pair on the phone. The reception was OK and the other caller could hear just fine from the headset however it's not really designed for listening to music. I found the sound to be very tinny and shallow and generally disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound but potential language installation mistake - a fraction more expensive than the average bluetooth headset., 10 Feb. 2015
These headphones were provided by the manufacturer in exchange for a fair and honest review.

These headphones came simply packaged with a USB to dedicated adaptor (which looks very much like a PSP adaptor) and a manual. The headphones are actually partially collapsible - and I only say 'partially' because they do not collapse flat as each earphone folds in towards the centre of the headrest and the earphones sit one on top of the other. This is essentially nice for travelling by train or to work but not really great for airplanes since they really need to fold more flat.

The headphones are very comfortable to wear and cover the ears with plenty of space to spare and the ear pads definitely add to it's comfort. All of the controls are on the right side of the earpiece with a cursor type layout - up down buttons for volume and left/right buttons for forward/back tracks and lastly a multifunction button in the middle for play/pause/on/off. I really liked that the directional buttons had slightly raised tabs so that you know where they are however you do need to feel around to see where any given button is to the others to find out whether it's up/down/left or right.

It was very easy to connect to my Iphone by simply pressing the centre multifunction button and pair with it on my phone. The headset kindly lets you know vocally when it's turned on, connected or at maximum volume however I was astounded to find out that the language was not English. It was talking to me in what seemed like Chinese which was amusing but this did not detract from the headphones functionality or appeal. This may have just been a one-off mistake but if you're used to any bluetooth headphone or speaker you can guess what it's saying.

As I said, the language issue did not detract from the headphones functionality in any way. Sound was very bright and full with a decent bass and no hint of tinniness as I have found on other headphones. All in all these Tecevo headphones have good sound quality and are comfortable. However having checked for bluetooth headphones on Amazon revealed quite a few headphones in the £20 range. I think Tecevo may need to reconsider it's price if it wants to be more competitive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good little set up for either monitoring or as a security system., 9 Feb. 2015
This monitor system was provided by the manufacturer for a fair and honest review.

This set comes with all cables and wires for 4 wireless cameras that all feed through to a central monitor where you can view and record any video. I was initially worried at how difficult it would be to fit together as I'm OK at electrical equipment on the whole but by no means an electrician however I was surprised at how easy it was. Each camera comes with a power cable with a fairly long cable to allow you to fit it in a convenient location with respect to the plug and the monitor has it's own power cable as well. Each camera also has it's own antenna to ensure that the best reception is picked up. You can split screen between all 4 cameras or alternatively select to only view one feed. One nice feature is that you can select to record footage by inserting a TF card (trans flash) which is essentially an SD card up to 32Gb. The system will allow you to manually record, set a schedule or alternatively record if any motion is detected and can therefore act as a security system as well however if you want to do this you need to ensure that all power cables are hidden as well as the monitor itself. The cameras do have night vision so you can easily just use it as a security system if you wanted to and the cameras are durable enough to fit outdoors. Very easy to set up and a complete system all in one.
