Syllable D9X Wireless Bluetooth Headphones – Review

Bluetooth headphones do have a bit of a problem. You need to power the things. Previously we took a look at the Syllable D900 headphones and you’ll see from that review that they sat inside your ears. All good, but the battery life meant that you’d have to …

Huawei Mate 10 Pro – Review

This is a hard-wearing speaker from a company called VAVA. It’s rated as “IPX6” so should, in theory, cope with a blast of water from a jet plus dust and sand. Basically, they’re offering a speaker that you can attach to you bag and go camping with here, …

Eachine E52 WiFi Foldable Quadcopter – Review

They call it a quadcopter. I’m gonna call it a drone. This drone, though, has considerably less “faff” about it than most drones, and it’s less than £40, which really isn’t bad at all. When it arrives, you’ll notice that the remote control is far bigger than the …

Portable chargers. Yes, there’s lots of them on the market. This one is from ROMOSS and they’ve designed it so that it’s got plenty of capacity whilst still fitting in your trouser pocket. That’s a good thing. There’s 2 output ports and a 10,000mAh capacity. You can charge …

QICENT Cable Management Container – Review

Even with supposed “wireless charging”, you’re still going to have a whole heap of cabling kicking around. If could be behind your desk, it could be behind your TV, it could be under your bed. A cable for charging, a power adaptor for this, another for that. And …
