Mujjo Double-insulated Touchscreen Gloves – Review

A few days ago I mentioned the improved Mujjo touchscreen gloves. Pricey they might be (these ones here are €59.90 from the Mujjo website but they really are top-notch quality. These gloves have been a bestseller for Mujjo for quite a while, but they’ve recently improved these gloves …

Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 – Review

As some of you may know I have been on the hunt for a wearable device recently that will give me 3 things, along with battery life, simple and easy to use the software, affordability. Up until now, I have been mainly focused on the Smartwatch end of …

EarFun Go Bluetooth Speaker – Review

Priced at £35.99 on Amazon you might be thinking, “Oooh, that’s a bit much for a speaker”. Indeed, you can pay less for your next Bluetooth speaker, but – when you’re shopping on the internet – a lot of speakers do look the same. The sound and build …

Yeelight Colour Lightstrip Plus – Review

It’s Monday and I have a confession to make. Back in February we got sent this Yeelight Lightstrip. It’s actually made by Xiaomi, and we all know how good they are. If you want one, you can buy from Amazon right now. Here in the UK it’ll currently …

ANNKE IP Smart Camera – Review

We’ve reviewed quite a bit of ANNKE kit over the years. You may remember the SP3 Wireless camera, the ANNKE dash cam and, way back in 2015, the Sparkle SP1. That last one is still in my house, and you’ll see it as part of this review. What …

Retro-fitting wireless charging on your smartphone

You may have seen these floating around on Amazon (here) or eBay (here). For those of you, like me, who have a smartphone without the clever wireless charging, you can retro-fit this by slipping one of these between your phone and the case. It comes with a near-flat …

Anker PowerPort + Atom III 2 and PowerPort III Mini – Review.

I love things that make life easier and allow you to travel lighter. The USB Type-C standard is definitely one of those things. It is a great connection – compact, multipurpose and intelligent. I’ve got a laptop which only has USB Type-C as a means of connecting peripherals. …

We recently had a look at the Cable Guys Spiderman smartphone holder. This one is similar, but far taller and look – it’s Crash Bandicoot! Available from Amazon for £24.99, there’s free delivery in the UK. This is 32cm hig and weighs in at 1.1 KG. It’s a …

Mobvoi TicWatch Pro – Review

So I have finished testing the standard TicWatch S2 and I was wondering how the TicWatch Pro would compare against this, fortunately, the kind people at TicWatch were able to send me over a TicWatch Pro to test out which was very good of them. For this review, …

70mai Smart Dash Cam – Review

Made by Xiaomi, this is a perhaps one of the best dash cams I’ve ever tested. OK, perhaps I’m not meant to start reviews that way but it’s true. Available from Amazon, there’s a couple of different versions of this one but it starts at £65.99. Yes, that …

KitSound Diggit XL Speaker – Review

Given the delightful summer we’re having this year, testing this one has been somewhat tricky. It doubles as a garden / outdoor speaker and has a detachable stake which lets you plonk it into the ground. It’s ideal for the beach, a garden party, a barbeque or on …

Xiaomi Announce the Mi Smart Band 4 coming to Europe

In continuation of my current obsession with all things wearable, I have just seen that Xiaomi has announced their latest Band product in the form of the Mi Smart Band 4. This is a departure from the previous designs in that it now has a full-colour AMOLED display. …

Mobvoi TicWatch S2 – Review

Here at Coolsmartphone Towers, we do still like our wearables. It has been a rocky road for them though since their inception a few years back. They were expensive, and people didn’t really know what they were for. I have used a few different ones over the years …

TicWatch Pro – Unboxing

I have been testing the TicWatch S2 for the past few days whilst I have been away on holiday and I have been mightily impressed with it in general. There has however been one thing that has been slightly annoying me and that was the battery life of …

TravelCard Charger – Review

Last weekend I went camping and, without doubt, the portable charger was definitely a key piece of kit. However, remembering to bring one of these with you is a challenge, so this – the TravelCard – can sit in your wallet or purse ready for you to use …

InvisibleShield Liquid Defence – On test

After we covered the liquid foundation for your phone just recently, we got some to test. Oh, and before I start, I’ll mention the usual US / UK spelling differences between Defence and Defense are in play throughout this article. Defence is how I’ve learned to spell it …

Video review – The Wallet Slayer

Last month I took a look at the Wallet Slayer cases from SilkSmartish. You can find them on Amazon USA too, but if you buy from their site, they’ll do international shipping. However, I wanted to show you how these cases worked, because you can carry your cards …

Kitvision Observer DashCam – Review

This review has been a long time in the making. I have never really been one for using a dashcam, however when the opportunity to review one came up I figured I would give it a shot. Here we have the Kitvision Observer 1080p Dashcam with GPS and Wifi. …

Dell USB Type C Monitor – Review

I have been on the lookout for a USB Type C monitor to go along with my Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 for a while now to allow me to optimise my desk setup. Until recently, it has proven difficult to get one that would fit in my smallish …
