NILLKIN Magic Disk 4 Wireless Charger REVIEW

A cost-effective unique charger. With so many wireless products like mobile phones, we still find ourselves wiring up our devices because they need to get charged. There have been times I actually don’t make it through an entire day without plugging my phone into power. Fortunately, I have the new iPhone X, which is compatible with Qi wireless charging devices like the Nillkin Magic Disk 4. It’s a simple charger for charging devices wirelessly like my iPhone. Details The Magic Disk 4 is a simple, horizontal wireless charging pad that supports high-speed 9V fast charging mode. It’s compatible with any Qi…

V-MODA Crossfade M-100 Headphones

Solid pair of wired headphones My current top pick for headphones for close to a year has been the V-Moda Crossfade II. V-Moda has impressed me with its high-end quality sound and design on every product I have tested out. I will post my links to my other V-Moda reviews at the bottom for comparison. The Crossfade M-100 are not Bluetooth headphones but have a lower price point for those wanting a solid pair but needing something a little more affordable. Unboxing I’m a sucker for good packaging and V-Moda knows how to get me. The studs on the handle…

V-MODA Remix Wireless Bluetooth Speaker (Black)

Remix builds a lasting impression with fantastic sound. I think if there’s one thing besides my MacBook and iPhone X that I would have a hard time going without it would be a Bluetooth speaker. I have to have music going and the sound from the devices are good when I’m in a pinch but I really need to connect with something to enjoy whatever I may be listening to more. The V-MODA Remix just officially became my go-to Bluetooth speaker that I can’t be without. Unboxing The speaker is about 8 inches long and is small enough to easily…

SKECH Vortex iPhone X Case and Car Mount (Champagne) REVIEW

A very sturdy, well-made case for iPhone X with special kickstand ring. Right now it seems like everyone is accessorizing their phone cases with kickstand rings and pop sockets. I never gravitated towards them because they tend to increase the bulk of the phone and I don’t like that they could become unattached. The Skech Vortex gives the convenience of having a kickstand ring attached to the case and without the extra bulk. Details The Vortex case features an adjustable ring on the back of the case that keeps the phone firmly in your hand. In addition to the ring,…

V-MODA Forza Metallo Wireless Earbuds (White) REVIEW

Solid high-end wireless earbuds I have a pair of Crossfade 2 headphones from V-Moda and I have to say that is my favorite pair of headphones so I’m very excited to be trying out the V-Moda Forza Metallo wireless earbuds.  I know the brand is very lux and high end and has produced other products with amazing sound quality. So, I have high hopes for these.  Now granted, a pair of earbuds can’t compete quality-wise with an over the ear set but I’m curious to see if it has enough punch to be my new favorite pair. Unboxing Everything down…

SBODE SPORT Over-The-Ear Bluetooth Headphones REVIEW

Extremely affordable, well-design headphones. My number one go-to type of headphones when being active has to be over-the-ear Earbuds.  It takes the convenience of the small size of  Earbuds but is much more stable when moving around.  The fact that this pair is water-resistant with an 8-hour battery life increases the appeal to users needing a headphone for work out sessions. Unboxing:  Immediately taking these out of the box my mind compared them to my Beats over-the-ear Earbuds.  However, there is a significant price difference and I was excited to see how these compare quality wise to them.  The SBODE…

SENS8 Wireless Home Security Camera REVIEW

A ‘win’ for home security monitoring. Home monitoring can be simple and cost-effective. Now that there are more home security cameras coming on the market that don’t require a paid subscription there are more opportunities to own one without hurting your wallet. I don’t have a huge fear that my house is at risk for being broken in to but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Also, home security is nice for checking in on loved ones if you’re a busy worker, monitoring babies, and keeping an eye on the family that receives home health care. Unboxing: The Sens8…

Compact USB-C Docking Station with PD Pass-Thru

Docking station takes the headache out of connection to a MacBook Pro. With the new MacBook Pro, the only problem I have run into is making sure I have what I need to be connected to it since it only uses USB-C for connectivity. USB-C docking stations are a great solution to that problem by making a center for all devices to be connected to. When it comes to what I like to connect to my MacBook Pro on a daily basis I’m pretty minimal. However, there are those times where I need multiple devices connected and the Compact USB-C…

SKECH Polo Book iPhone 8/7/6s Plus Folio Case REVIEW

A great compliment for the iPhone. By far my favorite type of phone case to use for my iPhone 7 Plus is a folio style. I like the convenience of having spare cash, my ID, and a debit card on me when having a bag isn’t an option. One issue for folio cases that causes people to not want to use them is the bulkiness when making a call or when they’re wanting to be using for an extended period of time. The SKECH Polo Book iPhone case may have solved this issue by allowing the phone to have an…

QacQoc GN30C USB C Multiport Adapter REVIEW

A cost-competitive option for connecting devices to USB-C I am happy to announce that I finally upgraded my 13-inch MacBook Pro for a new 15-inch MacBook Pro with touch bar.  With that upgrade comes a new range of accessories that I am eager to try out.  Now that I have a computer that operates with USB-C, I have to find new accessories that will work with it. In my search for a good reliable line up of accessories, my first review is going to be on the QacQoc USB-C Multiport Adapter allowing me to connect a variety of devices to…

PHIATON BT390 Bluetooth Wireless Compact Headphones (Black) REVIEW

A good set of travel headphones. When it comes to picking out a good pair of over-the-ear padded headphones I gravitate towards the slim designs for travel. I need a set that’s somewhat on the smaller side but without small sound. I like to travel with the padded headphones because they tend to block out the noise from disturbing the people I’m around regardless of the fact that I listen to some pretty good music in my opinion. The Phiaton Bluetooth compact headphones maintain a nice clear sound and have a small build to them where they’re a good go-to…

This messenger bag is great for travel and daily use. I’m a firm believer that I will never have enough bags. With all the things I keep on myself while commuting, it’s important to have a nice solid bag with plenty of room to hold it all. The SOLO Bryce Slim Brief laptop messenger bag is the perfect size for holding a 15.6-inch laptop and leaves plenty of room for more tech gear. My first impression of this bag is that the plaid canvas print looks very nice. The Bryce Slim Brief style has a zippered top which is a…

1MORE Dual Driver ANC In-Ear Headphones REVIEW

Integrated Lightning plug makes earbuds easy to use with iOS devices. I remember when I first heard that the iPhone 7 Plus would be ditching the auxiliary cord and just having the Lightning port.  I was nervous because I have a bad habit of not having my wireless ones charged up and ready to go.  Luckily the 1MORE Dual Driver earbuds have me covered. In addition to having an integrated Lightning plug on the cable, these earbuds also have active noise canceling, which is a big bonus to me. I’m always around some sort of ambient noise — at work…

SOUL Electronics Wireless Waterproof Bluetooth Earbuds REVIEW

Great headphones for an active lifestyle. I’m starting to think I have a headphone/earbud addiction.  I have tried so many different types and want to never be stuck without a pair.  With my iPhone 7 Plus making the major switch to being more conveniently, Bluetooth supported, I need to have a solid pair with good sound and equally good battery life.  The Soul Electronics Bluetooth earbuds are a very nice set with excellent charge time and battery life. Unboxing:  I always like to point out when a brand has great packaging and this is one of them.  The overall design…

Charging stand ends up as a lackluster device. Having a charging dock for my Apple Watch and iPhone 7 Plus next to my bed is a necessity. I love the convenience of having my chargers right next to my bed nice and organized. Since I use my iPhone 7 Plus as an alarm clock it is pertinent that it is charging during the night. The Oittm charging stand looks great next to my bed but it isn’t constructed well enough to use it where I need it most. Unboxing: When I unboxed this, judging by the picture it seemed to…

This router and extender combo have a great feature to monitor usage. Ally Plus Amped Wireless Home Smart Wi-Fi Router and Extender REVIEW If you have a large home then the Ally Plus Wireless Home Smart Wi-Fi router and extended set may be just what you are looking for. For me this wifi router and extender duo are more than I needed for my townhouse and my internet service is sometimes an issue.

A decorative and useful stand that is built to last. When it comes to the layout of my desk, the focal point is my MacBook Pro. I enjoy decorating and changing up my desk layout while focusing on ergonomics, creating a good work flow, and making it look nice. I spend a large portion of time at my desk on my MacBook Pro, so it’s important to me that I maintain good posture while looking at the screen. The Galen Leather Walnut Wood MacBook Pro stand adds a quality piece to my decor while being functional as well. First Impressions:…

BODYGUARDZ TRAINR PRO iPhone 6S Plus/7 Plus Case/Armband REVIEW

Activity case can hold its own. In my opinion, the best part of working out is the gear. Granted, it’s not something I’m extremely consistent with but I do love the part of getting together all the intricate gear needed to make it more convenient. I like to keep my phone on my person at all times and when running or going out for a walk I throw it in my pocket or wear a small messenger bag. If you’ve done that before you know that a lot of workout clothes don’t have pockets and you run the risk of…

DOUCHEBAG Base 15L Daypack REVIEW

Base 15L Daypack has you covered for basic, daily uses. This review is going to be about the Douchebag Base 15L daypack, not about the guy holding it. A very stylish but durable travel bag for anyone looking to carry around their gear safely. I’m a big fan of backpacks because I’m finishing up my nursing school and believe me, I need strength and durability with what I carry. I also like something that reflects my style and the Db Base 15L daypack is on par. The Look: The bag has a very nice high-end feel and appearance. The bag…

Paying for quality with the Crossfade II Wireless Headphones. One of my favorite things to try out is headphones.  Especially the studio with ear cups kind because music tends to me more immersive that way.  There’s a wide range of prices and qualities to headphones and V-MODA is a luxury style and sound brand.  The Crossfade II wireless Bluetooth headphones instantly became a favorite the moment they started to play.  The clarity is so good that all the headphones I have are going to have to take a seat while the V-MODA steps up.

Perfect gaming mouse that increases your performance and decreases your pain I am no stranger to wrist pain that is associated with repetitive computer usage. When I was younger, I was really into computer gaming and then ended up with a job focused on computer work. Ever since seeing the RBTs Original Rebel at CES 2017 I’ve been wanting to get my hands on one to see if it really did make a difference ergonomically and increase click speed. RBTs Original Rebel just launched their Indiegogo campaign and I got a chance to demo it prior to the launch. The…

Nixplay Iris 8-inch WiFi Digital Picture Frame

Nixplay Cloud Frames are the easiest way to get in touch with your photos. We use our tech products to streamline and simplify our lives which can sometimes hinder our emotional connections.  Even though we have so many social platforms I felt I was missing a closer connection for sharing photos and events with family.  The Nixplay Iris WiFi digital picture frame has given me a way to have those close to me instantly add photos to a frame on my desk.  The overall concept leaves me with a wonderful display of those I love and holds a sentimental value…

Moxyo Showtime Glitter Glass provides protection and glamour but still allows you to see the screen. I didn’t consider screen protectors for my iPhone to be an accessory that added anything besides protection. Moxyo decided to add some flare to glass screen protectors, which has now changed that perception. There is the added benefit of protection from scratches, cracks, and normal daily use, but it adds a little bit of fun as well. I want to start off with pointing out that my first impression of the concept of having a glitter screen protector left me skeptical that I would…

Nyne Rebel Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

Rebel speaker has impressive features that everyone can enjoy. This summer I plan on using the Rebel wireless Bluetooth speaker by Nyne for outdoor gatherings and camping. I’ve tried a lot of audio speakers outdoors and this one has my approval by being loud, clear, and packed full of bass. The speaker is meant for the outdoors being water and dust resistant, but I found myself wanting to use it inside as well. When I went to pick up the box I was shocked at how heavy it was. This speaker by is by no means small in size and…

Veho ZB-5 On-Ear Bluetooth Headphones

ZB-5 On-Ear Headphones are a classic, high-quality audio accessory. The Veho ZB-5 headphones provide a crisp clean sound that can compete with other high-end audio brands.  I’m one of those people who is always listening to some form of audio.  Nothing is worse than having a set of headphones with sub-par audio quality to ruin the experience.  I’m extremely pleased with the Veho ZB-5 because despite it’s minimalistic look it has a very bold sound. My initial thought based on the look of the headphones was that they were very plain.  Not that having a plain looking set of headphones…

Fuse Chicken Bobine Blackout everything you need for the perfect car mount. I have had the worst luck with auto charging docks.  I either have had my iPhone come crashing down in my lap or go to get in my car and find the dock on the floor.  The cause that I find is that my dash has a curve to it and these docks do not adhere well because of that.  Also, most car docks are just the dock and you have to provide your own cable to charge. Now that I’ve had the chance to try the Fuse…

Armour Travel Lightning Charge Keychain – Never forget your charger again I cannot express how truly frustrated it makes me when I am out somewhere and realize I forgot my charger.  I’ve done multiple things to ensure that I don’t wind up somewhere sans charger.  Really, that just means I purchased enough to strategically place around like leaving one in my car, making sure there was one for just my desk, next to my bed, one for my purse, one for my backpack.  The problem is they would never stay there for long.  I now how a fool proof way…

SenseCover steps up the folio game while remaining protective and stylish When choosing a phone case I gravitate toward cases that I would describe as slim, protective, and stylish. I also have become quite the fan of folio cases. The Moshi SenseCover fits into all of the descriptors I just used. However, this isn’t the type of folio case like Moshi’s Overture case that allowed me to leave my leather wristlet wallet at home. The SenseCover has the ability to let you answer phone calls and view the date, time and who is calling you without having lift the cover…
