Review: AUKEY Quick Charge 3.0 Car Charger 18W

AUKEY Quick Charge 3.0 Car Charger 18W

Review: 

Absolutely love this little car charger. It offers fantastic charging speeds in comparison to so many others I’ve used before it. Normally in car chargers just seem to trickle charge my device, but this little beast really delivers.

It’s very small and compact and well made. My only complaint is that it only has one USB charging port, which isn’t the end of the world most times, but there are a few occasions where I need to charge multiple gadgets on the go. However, if the trade off is speed, then I’ll take speed over multiple USB’s.

Manufacture Description:

  • AUKEY is Amazon’s #1 Quick Charge Brand.
  • Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 Technology: AUKEY is Officially licensed and certified to use Quick Charge 3.0 Tech. Charges compatible devices four times faster than standard chargers and 40% faster than QC 2.0 Tech.

Review: AUKEY Running Belt Waist Pack 5.5 inches Transparent Touch Screen Running Bag

AUKEY Running Belt Waist Pack 5.5 inches Transparent Touch Screen Running Bag

Review:

This is a nice little running pouch. It feels well made, and the straps feel secure. I didn’t ever worry about my phone tumbling free which is always a good thing!

I was surprised by how well my screen responded through this, and to be honest I didn’t really expect it to work at all. Granted, it’s not quite as good as just touching your screen and there were a few missed presses, but for the most part it worked very well.

The belt itself is elasticated, and also adjustable, so you get pretty much get it to fit perfectly. The pouch itself is pretty roomy, and theres enough space for your phone and a few small spare items. One thing that I really liked is that there is a small hole for headphones, so if you’ve not gone with bluetooth, then you can still use your music.

All in all this is a really good little accessory if you want to use your phone while running. It’s more comfortable than the normal armbands I use.

Manufacture Description:

  • Premium Quality: The belt is very lightweight and soft. It is made of a waterproof nylon material that feels quite silky and also has a Waterproof Zip on the back to protect your devices from water/sweat.It holds everything securely inside and nothing will fall out while on a run.
  • Touchable Screen Window: The transparent touch PVC screen window allows you to use your touch screen well as usual.That makes it easy to operate the cellphone when there is a call or message in.
  • A Earphone Jack: There is a hole in the belt for a pair of earphones to come through, so you can listen to the music on your phone while wearing it.
  • Large Capacity: There is the main pocket on the top with the transparent screen, you can still operate your phone by it. And there is a extra pocket behind the main pocket where you can store keys, money, cards and other things you may want to carry with.
  • Adjustable Belt: The waist strap is made of a very high quality thick elastic. There are also two clips on the belt that you can adjust the length of it to meet your need.

Review: AUKEY Bluetooth Speaker with 30-Hour Playtime

Review:

This speaker is awesome, delivering great sound. The build quality is top class, and some of the best I’ve used in this price bracket. it feels rugged and looks great at the same time. Everything about this little speaker feels premium.

You can connect via bluetooth, or you can plug your device in directly using a 3.5mm jack. The speaker also has a tripod screw on the bottom so you can place this easily in different locations.

It packs in around 30 hours of play time which is great, and also surprising considering its size. it’s not the smallest speaker ever, but it doesn’t look big enough to pack in that much juice.

Along the top of the device you’ve got all your vital buttons to allow you to control the speaker without constantly reaching for your phone.

Audio quality is very good. It’s not going to replace your in home speakers, but as a portable audio device this speaker packs more than enough power in. Music sounds great, and calls also sounded very good.

All in all, a very good speaker that is well worth the price.

Please note, I was sent this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Review: AUKEY Bluetooth Speakers with Enhanced Bass

Aukey Speaker Review

Review:

This is a nifty little speaker that delivers pretty good sound considering its size. It is well made, and feels very robust.

As mentioned above, it delivers good sound quality. It’s not fantastic, but considering the size and price, it’s much better than I would have expected.

It charges via Micro USB, so you most likely won’t need to worry about running out of cables. It can be paired via AUX, or bluetooth, both of which are an absolute breeze to set up. It also packs the main buttons that you’ll need to use this handsfree, so there is no need to keep reaching for your media device.

Review: Aglaia Glass Aroma Diffuser Essential Oil Humidifier

Aglaia Glass Aroma Diffuser Essential Oil Humidifier

Review:

The first thing that struck me about this little product is how small and compact it is. I’ve been sent a few of these diffusers, and although they normally look ok, they are often relatively large and bulky. This one isn’t, it’s a lovely looking thing that really doesn’t look out of place wherever you place it.

To match its good looks, the device also performs well. Apart from helping to freshen a room up, it also has multiple light colours which really adds to its looks. I was surprised by the range of colours, and the level of light performance.

Getting it up and running is really simple, add water, add a few drops of oil/perfume, and bam, you’re ready to go. The diffuser got to work very quickly, and within a few minutes I could already smell it.

Well worth the money if you’re looking for something that does a great job and also looks like something you would actually want in your home.

Manufactures Description:

  • The Diffuser combines the benefits of aroma-therapy, aqua-therapy and light-therapy. Ultrasonic diffusing keeps the goodness of the essential oil and make them easier to diffuse with aromatic mist. Enjoy soothing aromatic mist with Aglaia Essential Oil Diffuser.

  • Unit may also be used as a non-aromatherapy humidifier. Healthy anions is created when water is ultrasonic diffused, anions cleans the surrounding air and reduce radiation from computer and natural environment. It not only improves dry air and chapped skin in dry winter months but helps with allergies, sleep, cold and flu symptoms.
  • The 7-color LED lights create a soft and romantic ambience, making you feel calm and comfortable after one-day work. You can change color into your favorite one or suitable mode. You also can use it as a night light in baby room or bedroom.

Review: Power Inverter 300W 12V to 230V

Power Inverter 300W 12V to 230V

Review:

This is one of those products that you probably won’t find yourself needing much, but it’s more than handy when you go camping or caravanning (or finding yourself in need of charge for your Macbook in the car)

The unit feels sturdy and well made, with a durable metal shell to protect the internals. It sports two full sized USB ports, and a 3 pin plug for UK mains charging devices. This is great as it offers a huge amount of support for most things you could need when away from a mains power source.

When charging or powering whatever you’ve chosen to use, this device starts to heat up. Luckily there’s a built in fan that helps to keep the heat under control, but it is worth noting that the inverter can start to get warm relatively quickly depending on what you’ve plugged in.

Like I said at the start, you won’t find yourself using this much, but if you’re going camping, then it can come in very handy indeed!

Manufactures Description:

  • Perfect for charging a vast range of household devices and electronic devices while on the road and for camping, field work, vacations ect
  • AC Outlet: Coverts the DC 12V current from you car to AC 230V so that you can use the household devices powered by spin which are not exceed 150W during your road trip
  • 2 USB Outputs: Charge phones and tablets simultaneously at up to 4.8A
  • Comes with battery clamps and cigarette lighter adapter. It’s the essential addition to your emergency travel kit; Smart cooling fan makes it silent when using the Power Inverter
  • Package Contents: AUKEY 300W Power Inverter, Battery Clamp, Cigarette Lighter Plug, User Manual

Review: AUKEY Laptop Cooling 12″-17″ Pad Laptop Cooler

AUKEY Laptop Cooling 12"-17" Pad Laptop Cooler

Review:

This is a great quality and well designed cooling pad. The thing is pretty big, and offers plenty of room for most laptops, even larger gaming laptops. Despite its relatively large size, it isn’t cumbersome and it still maintains some pretty good looks.

On the bottom you’ve got adjustable feet so you can angle this on a desk with issue or have it sat comfortably on your lap instead. On the top, you’ve got rubber grips which are really handy as they help your laptop to grip the surface. This is especially handy if you have the cooling pad angled, as it grips well even when typing and gaming.

The whole thing is powered via USB, so theres no need to plug it into an external power source. Throughout my time using this I found that it kept my device cool, even under heavy load.

Highly recommended!

Manufactures Description:

  • LIGHT WEIGHT: Slim and portable adapter for 12-17 inch laptop and notebook with easy carry, no matter where you go.
  • COMPATIBILITY AND DURABLE: AUKEY cooling pad supports various laptop sizes from 12inch to 17 inch. Full metal mesh provides a stable surface with anti-slip rubber feet.

Review: AUKEY Quick Charge 2.0 Wall Charger

AUKEY Quick Charge 2.0 Wall Charger 18W

Review:

This little charger offers exceptionally fast charging for compatible devices. I found during my testing that when charging, phones do tend to heat up, so that’s something to be aware of. It’s not a fault, so there’s no need to worry, but when they are taking in so much power quickly it will cause the battery to heat up.

The charger itself is a little on the large size, and I feel its a bit of a shame that it isn’t collapsable so it takes away a little of the portability. Apart from that, this is a great charger and very reasonably priced. It has the same features as chargers that are more than twice the price, so it’s a bargain really.

Manufactures Description:

  • Charge compatible devices up to 75% faster than standard chargers
  • Universal Charging: Charges all non-Quick Charge 2.0 phones and tablets at their normal speed (up to 5 volts / 2.4A Max) with AiPower Adaptive Charging Technology
  • A Quick Charge 2.0 enabled device must be paired with a Quick Charge 2.0 certified adapter; The car charger was tested by UL and complies with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0
  • Package Contents: AUKEY 18W Single Port USB Turbo Wall Charger Fast Charger with Quick Charge 2.0, 20AWG 3.3FT USB Micro USB Cable, User manual, and full 24 Month Worry-Free Warranty
  • Input: AC 100-240V, Output: 5V/2A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A

Review: Amcrest ProHD 1080P WiFi Wireless IP Security Camera

Review:
This is by far the nicest IP camera I have used. It looks fantastic, and the matte rubberised texture feels great and helps the camera to just blend into the background. It’s not overly large, small enough to avoid notice, but it has a good bit of weight behind it and its sturdy with a firm base to sit on. I especially like the fact that it has a screw in the bottom to allow for mounting onto a tripod or stand, one of which is included in the box (stand/mount)

Pairing the device up is very simple, download the Amcrest Pro app, scan the QR code on the bottom of the camera, and you’re ready to go. It’s really simple and the instructions are very clear. There’s a lot of features within the app, allowing users to customise their camera and how it performs. You can set alarm and motion detectors, and set up things like push notifications. This is great if you’re looking for something to notify you when something off is detected within your home.

Streaming and recording quality is top of the range. The device tops out at 1080 at 30 fps when streaming and recording which is great. Logging in to see what the camera could see always gave fantastic results due to the high quality. The larger quality in resolution compared to other IP cameras I have used allows for more flexibility in zooming in on certain areas. Also, the camera has a very good wide eye lens so even when zoomed in, you’ve got a pretty good field of view to play with.

Despite having a larger resolution, the camera is still very responsive when panning and tilting. I found that it streamed almost instantly and I was able to control it without any lag. This is handy if you’re looking around and you want it to be quick.

The device also supports a two way talk function which is surprisingly loud and clear. This is a great fantastic feature for deterring intruders after they’ve been detected as you have the ability to capture the images and footage you need, then warn them that they have been discovered and should leave. It’s also a great feature for driving my cats and wife wild!

The camera also features a Micro SD card slot, allowing you to record video to the card and play it back later. This is a useful feature if you can’t keep an eye on the footage throughout the day. It also includes night-vision which is surprisingly good quality!

My only gripe with the camera is that it doesn’t support Apple Homekit, or at least I didn’t find any support during my usage. Hopefully that might change with iOS 10 coming soon as I’d love to have support for my Apple Watch.

All in all this is a fantastic bit of kit with plenty of uses. The quality, both video and audio is extremely high end, so it allows for more versatile uses. I’d definitely recommend this camera.

Review:

This is a great bit of kit, well made and very functional. The quality feels really high end and the device itself certainly seems durable and as if it will last a long time. It has a good bit of weight behind it, and unlike some other straightening brushes I’ve been sent, it didn’t have any imperfections. The pink finish was well done and didn’t have any chips or missing patches, which is an odd thing I’ve seen on a lot of these brushes.

The device is easy to use, plug it in and let it heat up (which it does very quickly) and then begin brushing. There are two controls to allow you to increase and decrease the temperature, depending on what suits you best, and these temperatures can be locked into place by pressing the power button.

The handle of the device remained cool throughout usage, and the brush itself didn’t get super hot as it’s the pad that heats up, so you won’t have to worry about burning.

It was my wife who used the device on her hair, and she found it to be very effective, and especially liked how it made styling her hair a little easier (apparently it’s really easy to add a bit of a flick to your hair with these!)

All in all, very happy with this product, it seems well made and it does a great job styling and straightening hair. Can’t ask for much more really.

Review

This is an awesome bit of kit that comes in at an exceptionally low price. The beauty of it is how easy the set up is. Literally, just plug it in, tune your radio in to the same frequency displayed on the device, and you’re ready to go. Once paired up, you can begin playing your music and it will come through your car speakers.

The device delivers great quality and I didn’t experience any hissing or dropped signal unlike other devices I’ve tested before. The music sounded great, and the addition of a mic on the transmitter means you can also handle calls through this as well. When using this for hands free I found the persons voice to be clear, and they reported that they didn’t hear any echoes and I sounded fine on the other end.

The devices feels well made is is very easy to set up and the charging section also has a spare USB port so that you don’t have to sacrifice charging your phone while using this. Another big bonus.

For the price, you really can’t go wrong. This is an amazingly simple bit of kit that delivers all around!

Review:

This is a great little outdoor light, that delivers much more than I expected. To be honest, I always doubt how good anything solar powered is, especially here in the UK, but after only a few hours, this light had enough juice stored up to deliver.

It is well made and feels durable. The light itself won’t look out of place and is relatively compact for what it is. Included with this is a little cardboard strip, a template that helps to ensure you drill the holes in the exact place you need them. There’s no need to do any manual measurements or guesswork, which makes fitting this pretty easy.

There are three modes of lighting, the most useful being a security light that kicks in when its sensors pick up movement (a feature that works very well). It’s a very bright light, and much more impressive than I expected.

I’m really impressed with this solar light and would definitely recommend it. It’s very easy to fit, and due to the solar charging, you don’t have to worry about hooking up any power source!
