New Mujjo Touchscreen Gloves – Review

Paying €49.90 or $49.90 for a pair of touchscreen gloves might seem a bit much, but believe me – I’ve tried touchscreen gloves in the past. Yes, you can get cheaper gloves out there, but you’ll be walking around in a minefield of gloves which either make your …

Reviewing a whole bunch of Anker chargers

Tribit X-Boom Speaker – Review

Small Bluetooth speaker. Situation normal then. As I always start these reviews, the Bluetooth speakers tend to slot into to different categories. First, there’s the diddy small speakers, like this one, that don’t have a great deal of bass and tend to be OK for the odd bit …

SpyTrack Nano – Review

I’m not really a fan of naming these things with words like “spy” in the title. To be honest it takes away from the cool and less creepy things that you can do with the device. This is a very clever GPS tracker. Small, simple to use and …

iClever IC-GK03 Wireless keyboard and mouse – Review

OK, please don’t tell iClever, but I’ve had this (and I’ve used it) for a number of weeks now. Even though it’s been right in front of me, I totally forgot to do the review. At least it means that I know all about it though, which is …

Backpacks are an essential part of my daily kit. They allow me to transport my gear around with ease and minimal discomfort. I have used various cheap bags over the years, but recently was offered the chance to test on from Booq. This was slightly different from any …

A cool experiment with the Novoo portable charger

A normal portable phone charger, right? Wrong! This is the Novoo power bank and it’s got a whopping 20,100mAh capacity. That means it’ll fully recharge a smartphone (assuming 3000mAh battery), from flat, nearly 7 times. Great for a week away. It has a USB output and a USB-C …
