KitSound Upstage – Review

Let’s face it, your smartphone has got a proper weedy speaker. It’s not going to fill a room and, despite what the “yoof” think, walking around the streets with your phone playing tunes at full volume is nothing when compared to the classic ghetto blaster. When you’re

MONTAR 360 degree car mount – Review

I’ll admit to jumping in my car and generally throwing my phone onto the passenger seat. There it’ll be, sliding around and then falling off the side of the seat as I go around a corner. After I arrive at my destination I then get to play

Lynktec 360 degree Tablet Kickstand – Review

This thing is pretty straightforward really. It sticks onto the back of any tablet and gives you a kickstand. Not only that, but it’ll rotate around by 360 degrees so you can set it up just how you want. It sticks on using special microsuction technology. Sure,

Kitvision Splash Waterproof Action Camera – Review

A GoPro camera might be found on the helmet of a cyclist near you but, if we’re honest, these things are quite expensive. This is an alternative – the Kitvision Splash. The price is £69.99 (RRP), but you can get it for less than that on Amazon.

Spy Pen – Review

I used to review phones. Then I guess people saw those reviews and thought “hey, let’s send him some other stuff to review”. Now I’ve got a pen with a secret camera in it. Why you’d want one of these is a question for you. Perhaps you

EE Osprey Mini 2 review

Getting online these days is more important than it ever was before, in some cases being able to get online for email and browsing is more important than a phone call or text message. There are a few ways to get online if you have a tablet

Review of the EnerPlex Kickr II+ Rugged Solar Charger

Last summer I camped for the first time in years.  It was fun but it got me thinking about going back to basics.  No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t comprehend leaving my phone aside for anything more than a few hours.  Of course we are

KitSound Tilt Bluetooth Portable Speaker – Review

My smartphone forms a central part of my life. It helps manage and organise my time, it helps me communicate and is my main entertainment hub. This is why for me smartphones and music are synonymous. Whether you store your music on your device or choose to stream

Microsoft Band – Review

A few weeks ago you may remember that I was able to get hold of the Microsoft Band briefly at its launch event. I have now had some time with the device and thought I would share my thoughts with you. I am not the fittest guy

Archos Weather Station – Review

The weather is quite varied these days, you may have noticed! Keeping on top of what the weather is doing is achievable through a variety of methods, be it looking out of the window, actually going outside, using a forecast app or using the Archos Weather Station

A look at Beamz – A Musical Instrument for Everyone

Playing a musical instrument can be a fantastic creative activity and a fun pastime, but the level of skill required can make it non-inclusive. Enter Beamz, a smart laser beam driven MIDI device that connects to your PC or iOS device to provide a simple & interactive

Lazy Arm – Review

We heard about this gadget a short while ago. It is, in effect, a really long smartphone holder. Imagine the holder in your car, but with an almost 65cm reach. First of all, don’t try sticking this in your car. It’s far too long at it’d stick

Enerplex Jumpr Slate 5k Battery pack – Review

Those of you who follow the site ay remember me reviewing the Enerplex Packr Solar Rucksack. It was the bag I took to MWC 2015 with my and it proved to be very useful as it was able to carry a ridiculous amount of gear and was

Olixar Universal Tablet Car Headrest Mount Pro – Review

I have a small child and he can be a handful at times. Back when he was younger we were able to pop him into the car and I could guarantee the motion of driving would send him to sleep.  Ahh those were magical days…. However now

Immerse – Virtual Reality Headset Review

I reviewed the Google Cardboard some time ago. It was £2 and is (obviously) made from cardboard. It’s a virtual reality headset which uses your phone as the screen. This one, which isn’t made of cardboard but has a similar design, is £29.95. You buy this, slap

JBL Flip 2 – Review

Here’s another Bluetooth speaker that I’ve had the pleasure of using. The JBL Flip 2. JBL have been around in the audio industry for a very long time. Some of the first subwoofers I bought way back in the day for my car were 12″ JBL’s… that’s

Pronto – Smart Remote from Peel – Review

Many of the higher-end phones now have IR blasters. It’s not a new thing though, as IR ports were actually found in phones many years ago. Back then there wasn’t such a thing as “Bluetooth” and you’d never find WiFi in your handset, so data was transferred

Kitsound Evoke – Review

The Kitsound Evoke is a Bluetooth speaker, but this one is a little different. It needs to be plugged in. Not totally wireless, but it can easily be relocated to another place provided there’s a plug socket within reach. It looks absolutely fantastic. A sleek modern black
