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

EasyAcc two-channel stereo gaming headphones review.

A few years ago I was a big online gamer (ooooohh yes, I remember the days of online gaming with a 56k modem. Quake and Unreal Tournament come to mind..). Anyway, my gaming came to a halt about 6 years ago, which funnily coincides with the birth

Mophie Juice Pack iPhone 6 Plus – Review

Battery cases and portable chargers are becoming ever more popular. Just look at EE, who had a million requests for their Power Bar scheme. I’ve been a fan of the Mophie Juice Packs since I bought my first one for the iPhone 4S. I’m a heavy user

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.

The people at Kinivo were going to send us a Bluetooth speaker to look at. It was meant to be the Kinivo BTX270 Wireless Bluetooth speaker. I’m sure it’s very good and that, but what we actually received was this, the BTH240. It is, as you can

Tech21 Patriot Case – Review

I think I have a fetish for cases, either that or I have just never managed to find the right one. I’m always swapping and changing. Now this is my next victim, the Tech21 Patriot Case. This is a rugged case for my iPhone 6 Plus. Tech21 assure

Sennheiser Momentum Headphones – Review

There are times in life when you want to actually hear things the way they were intended. Be it a piece of music that brings back memories of a momentous event or you want to immerse yourself in a horror film or really loose yourself in a

Goospery Viva Case for Galaxy S5 – Reviewed

If you want to keep your Samsung Galaxy S5 in good condition, this Viva Window cover is worth a look. We’ve been using it on a Galaxy S5 and it sits over the battery cover – not replacing it as some do. This adds a small amount

Edifier MP211 Bluetooth speakers review

This is a small and very portable Bluetooth speaker which will fit fairly easily into your pocket and very easily into the likes of a handbag or small bag. First up, the design makes it look like one large black paracetamol caplet but (in the case of

ECOXGEAR ECOROX rugged speaker – Review

Ian is our go-to guy for the Bluetooth speakers, but recently I’ve had a few to play with and one of them is the ECOXGEAR ECOROX Rugged Bluetooth Speaker. The ruggedness of the speaker appealed to me, and I like to have things protected. The first thing
