Olixar BoomBrick – Review

This light and portable bluetooth speaker is ideal for travel. It’s stylish small size doesn’t mean it’s not powerful. With a 6W output level it’s loud enough to provide ample sound in a variety of places. Surprisingly the 2 little 3W speakers can provide good bass thanks

Kinivo BTH240 Bluetooth over-ear headphones. Reviewed.

EE runs out of Power Bars

The EE Power Bar – It’s not actually yours.
