SAVFY Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter – Review

Get this for $19.99 from Amazon US or just £13.99 from Amazon UK and then stick it into your cigarette lighter / 12V feed. After a simple pairing procedure it’ll hook into your phone via Bluetooth and pump out the music via FM. Then it’s just a matter …

ThruNite C2 Mini 3400 mAh Portable Charger – Review

For £19.95 on Amazon UK or $19.95 on Amazon US, this isn’t a great deal bigger than the battery inside. Plus, with this particular portable charger, you can actually unscrew the bottom and get at the battery – like an old-school torch / flashlight. Not only that, but …

Hard-wearing hardware – ICZI USB-C cables – Review

The Cables It’s hard to get good cables, and it’s almost unheard of to get good, good cables. This is why I like this ICZI range of USB-A to USB-C cables. I crossed over to using the USB-C standard over a year ago now, when the Nexus 6P …

OxyLED SL07 Solar Sensor Light – Review

Well now, I’ve got me an LED light which fits on the wall and shines when you walk past it in the dark. It charges via the sun and has a solar panel on the top. On the current US Amazon listing it’s $16.99. First up, it’s waterproof, …

Edifier MP700 RAVE Bluetooth Active Speaker – Review

The first thing you notice about this particular Bluetooth speaker is the price. It’s £229 on Amazon. That, I have to say, is a massive price-tag for a Bluetooth speaker. It weighs in at 1.6 kg and measures 29.4 x 6.7 x 17 cm. At 1.6Kg it isn’t …

Askborg ChargeCube 10400mAh Powerbank – Review

We’ve become all too familiar with the terrible battery life of our smartphones. As your phone gets older that battery gets even worse, so that’s where gadgets like this come in. This is the Askborg ChargeCube 10400mAh Powerbank. You can get it for £17.99 from Amazon UK or …

aLLreLi 4-port Travel Wall Adapter – Review

You’re about to go on holiday, you’ve got everything – the sun lotion, the wet wipes (is that just me?) and your gadgets. Wait though, what about those travel adapters you bought? You put them in that “special place” didn’t you? Are they in the bottom of the …

Dodocool wireless sports headphones – review

It is the New Year, when the fitness fad is at its strongest, so excuse us for a review of another set of wireless sports headphones.  Up today is the Dodocool DA104 ‘Wireless Sport Stereo Headset’.  Dodocool is yet another newish Chinese company that specialises in relatively affordable products. …

Kitsound Immerse Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones – A Review

So here I am in my 40’s and up until this review had never tried Noise Cancelling Headphones. So as a regular user  of Kitsound equipment I jumped at the opportunity to review the new Kitsound Immerse Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones for my friends at Coolsmartphone.com. Kitsound kit tends …

iClever BoostSound BTS07 Bluetooth Speaker – Review

Remember our BTS08 review from the other day? Well, this is the smaller brother. It’s definitely easier to carry around and is a lot lighter. Likewise, it’s thinner at both ends and I found it pretty easy to fit into a coat pocket. This one, unlike the BTS08, …

UMI-BTA8 Bluetooth Runner Earbuds – Review

The people from UMI have sent us these UMI-BTA8 Bluetooth in-ear headphones. They’re designed to be used if you’re out running or at the gym, but you can wear them if you’re sat on the sofa eating crisps too I guess :) First up, I should perhaps mention …

iClever BoostSound BTS08 Bluetooth Speaker – Review

Available from Amazon US for $49.99, this definitely isn’t one of those speakers you pop into your coat pocket. Measuring in ay 25.15 x 11.18 x 13.21 cm it’s definitely got some “meat” to it, and I mean that in a good way. Up top, four touch-control keys …

aLLreLi F5 Bluetooth Headphones – Review

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s been a reoccurring theme whenever we review Bluetooth headphones. There’s definitely two types of headphones that I’ve found over the years. The first type will last for ages and they’re usually in-ear, but the sound quality just isn’t that brilliant. …

Bozlun B15P Fitness Tracker – Review

  Well doesn’t this look familiar? Indeed it should. This looks a lot like the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 we reviewed last year. Remember that? Here it is.. Indeed, this Bozlun B15P Fitness Tracker could probably fit in the same charging connector. It’s a similar size and has …

Poweradd USB Rechargeable LED Bike Lights – Review

Yes, bike lights. Welcome to the never-ending list of stuff that we’re reviewing here on Coolsmartphone. I’m hoping that we’ll have some sports cars in next. These are LED lights. Back when I was a kid I’d have a huge battery in each of my bike lights and …

5-Port USB charging station – Review

There are some products, much like a well known paint manufacturer, that simply do ‘what it says on the tin’.  This charging station is one such device.  It has no bells or whistles, no flashing lights or additional bumpf, it simply charges multiple devices! It comes in a …

Aukey SK-M12 Wireless Speaker – Review

Christmas might be a long distant memory already but there’s still time to treat yourself to some shiny new tech products! This is the second Aukey wireless speaker I’ve reviewed.  Unlike the first model, which I rather liked, this speaker has a more rugged look.  Like most Aukey products …

Huawei Mate 9 to get Alexa. Let’s test it.

Over the last few days I’ve been faffing about with the voice-controlled Amazon Echo Dot. It’s got an invisible lady inside called “Alexa” which will do your bidding. The device itself is a magical disc-shaped unit which will wake up and then answer your questions. It’ll also play …
