Review: Aglaia Glass Aroma Diffuser Essential Oil Humidifier


The first thing that struck me about this little product is how small and compact it is. I’ve been sent a few of these diffusers, and although they normally look ok, they are often relatively large and bulky. This one isn’t, it’s a lovely looking thing that really doesn’t look out of place wherever you place it.

To match its good looks, the device also performs well. Apart from helping to freshen a room up, it also has multiple light colours which really adds to its looks. I was surprised by the range of colours, and the level of light performance.

Getting it up and running is really simple, add water, add a few drops of oil/perfume, and bam, you’re ready to go. The diffuser got to work very quickly, and within a few minutes I could already smell it.

Well worth the money if you’re looking for something that does a great job and also looks like something you would actually want in your home.

Review: Power Inverter 300W 12V to 230V


This is one of those products that you probably won’t find yourself needing much, but it’s more than handy when you go camping or caravanning (or finding yourself in need of charge for your Macbook in the car)

The unit feels sturdy and well made, with a durable metal shell to protect the internals. It sports two full sized USB ports, and a 3 pin plug for UK mains charging devices. This is great as it offers a huge amount of support for most things you could need when away from a mains power source.

When charging or powering whatever you’ve chosen to use, this device starts to heat up. Luckily there’s a built in fan that helps to keep the heat under control, but it is worth noting that the inverter can start to get warm relatively quickly depending on what you’ve plugged in.

Like I said at the start, you won’t find yourself using this much, but if you’re going camping, then it can come in very handy indeed!

Manufactures Description:

  • Perfect for charging a vast range of household devices and electronic devices while on the road and for camping, field work, vacations ect
  • AC Outlet: Coverts the DC 12V current from you car to AC 230V so that you can use the household devices powered by spin which are not exceed 150W during your road trip
  • 2 USB Outputs: Charge phones and tablets simultaneously at up to 4.8A
  • Comes with battery clamps and cigarette lighter adapter. It’s the essential addition to your emergency travel kit; Smart cooling fan makes it silent when using the Power Inverter
  • Package Contents: AUKEY 300W Power Inverter, Battery Clamp, Cigarette Lighter Plug, User Manual

Review: AUKEY Laptop Cooling 12″-17″ Pad Laptop Cooler


This is a great quality and well designed cooling pad. The thing is pretty big, and offers plenty of room for most laptops, even larger gaming laptops. Despite its relatively large size, it isn’t cumbersome and it still maintains some pretty good looks.

On the bottom you’ve got adjustable feet so you can angle this on a desk with issue or have it sat comfortably on your lap instead. On the top, you’ve got rubber grips which are really handy as they help your laptop to grip the surface. This is especially handy if you have the cooling pad angled, as it grips well even when typing and gaming.

The whole thing is powered via USB, so theres no need to plug it into an external power source. Throughout my time using this I found that it kept my device cool, even under heavy load.

Highly recommended!

Manufactures Description:

  • LIGHT WEIGHT: Slim and portable adapter for 12-17 inch laptop and notebook with easy carry, no matter where you go.
  • COMPATIBILITY AND DURABLE: AUKEY cooling pad supports various laptop sizes from 12inch to 17 inch. Full metal mesh provides a stable surface with anti-slip rubber feet.

Review: AUKEY Quick Charge 2.0 Wall Charger


This little charger offers exceptionally fast charging for compatible devices. I found during my testing that when charging, phones do tend to heat up, so that’s something to be aware of. It’s not a fault, so there’s no need to worry, but when they are taking in so much power quickly it will cause the battery to heat up.

The charger itself is a little on the large size, and I feel its a bit of a shame that it isn’t collapsable so it takes away a little of the portability. Apart from that, this is a great charger and very reasonably priced. It has the same features as chargers that are more than twice the price, so it’s a bargain really.

Manufactures Description:

  • Charge compatible devices up to 75% faster than standard chargers
  • Universal Charging: Charges all non-Quick Charge 2.0 phones and tablets at their normal speed (up to 5 volts / 2.4A Max) with AiPower Adaptive Charging Technology

The kit is surprisingly good quality, with everything delivering where it needs to. The audio captured from the microphone was great, and everything is pretty easy to set up. I’ve tested a lot of microphones that cost the same amount as this entire kit that deliver similar audio quality, so I was pretty surprised at the performance here.

Review: Amcrest ProHD 1080P WiFi Wireless IP Security Camera

This is by far the nicest IP camera I have used. It looks fantastic, and the matte rubberised texture feels great and helps the camera to just blend into the background. It’s not overly large, small enough to avoid notice, but it has a good bit of weight behind it and its sturdy with a firm base to sit on. I especially like the fact that it has a screw in the bottom to allow for mounting onto a tripod or stand, one of which is included in the box (stand/mount)

Pairing the device up is very simple, download the Amcrest Pro app, scan the QR code on the bottom of the camera, and you’re ready to go. It’s really simple and the instructions are very clear. There’s a lot of features within the app, allowing users to customise their camera and how it performs. You can set alarm and motion detectors, and set up things like push notifications. This is great if you’re looking for something to notify you when something off is detected within your home.

Streaming and recording quality is top of the range. The device tops out at 1080 at 30 fps when streaming and recording which is great. Logging in to see what the camera could see always gave fantastic results due to the high quality. The larger quality in resolution compared to other IP cameras I have used allows for more flexibility in zooming in on certain areas. Also, the camera has a very good wide eye lens so even when zoomed in, you’ve got a pretty good field of view to play with.

Despite having a larger resolution, the camera is still very responsive when panning and tilting. I found that it streamed almost instantly and I was able to control it without any lag. This is handy if you’re looking around and you want it to be quick.

The device also supports a two way talk function which is surprisingly loud and clear. This is a great fantastic feature for deterring intruders after they’ve been detected as you have the ability to capture the images and footage you need, then warn them that they have been discovered and should leave. It’s also a great feature for driving my cats and wife wild!

The camera also features a Micro SD card slot, allowing you to record video to the card and play it back later. This is a useful feature if you can’t keep an eye on the footage throughout the day. It also includes night-vision which is surprisingly good quality!

My only gripe with the camera is that it doesn’t support Apple Homekit, or at least I didn’t find any support during my usage. Hopefully that might change with iOS 10 coming soon as I’d love to have support for my Apple Watch.

All in all this is a fantastic bit of kit with plenty of uses. The quality, both video and audio is extremely high end, so it allows for more versatile uses. I’d definitely recommend this camera.


Review: Kealive Hair Straightener Brush

Manufacture Description:

  • Comb Massage Effect: The perfect combination of traditional combs and hair straighteners, a unique contact-type anti-scald massage, effective brain scalp massage to relieve fatigue

  • Humanized design: Wave-type handle design, the comb-tooth are is wider than ordinary comb, perm easier


This is a great bit of kit, well made and very functional. The quality feels really high end and the device itself certainly seems durable and as if it will last a long time. It has a good bit of weight behind it, and unlike some other straightening brushes I’ve been sent, it didn’t have any imperfections. The pink finish was well done and didn’t have any chips or missing patches, which is an odd thing I’ve seen on a lot of these brushes.

The device is easy to use, plug it in and let it heat up (which it does very quickly) and then begin brushing. There are two controls to allow you to increase and decrease the temperature, depending on what suits you best, and these temperatures can be locked into place by pressing the power button.

The handle of the device remained cool throughout usage, and the brush itself didn’t get super hot as it’s the pad that heats up, so you won’t have to worry about burning.

It was my wife who used the device on her hair, and she found it to be very effective, and especially liked how it made styling her hair a little easier (apparently it’s really easy to add a bit of a flick to your hair with these!)

All in all, very happy with this product, it seems well made and it does a great job styling and straightening hair. Can’t ask for much more really.

This is an awesome bit of kit that comes in at an exceptionally low price. The beauty of it is how easy the set up is. Literally, just plug it in, tune your radio in to the same frequency displayed on the device, and you’re ready to go. Once paired up, you can begin playing your music and it will come through your car speakers.

The device delivers great quality and I didn’t experience any hissing or dropped signal unlike other devices I’ve tested before. The music sounded great, and the addition of a mic on the transmitter means you can also handle calls through this as well. When using this for hands free I found the persons voice to be clear, and they reported that they didn’t hear any echoes and I sounded fine on the other end.

The devices feels well made is is very easy to set up and the charging section also has a spare USB port so that you don’t have to sacrifice charging your phone while using this. Another big bonus.

For the price, you really can’t go wrong. This is an amazingly simple bit of kit that delivers all around!

This is a great little outdoor light, that delivers much more than I expected. To be honest, I always doubt how good anything solar powered is, especially here in the UK, but after only a few hours, this light had enough juice stored up to deliver.

It is well made and feels durable. The light itself won’t look out of place and is relatively compact for what it is. Included with this is a little cardboard strip, a template that helps to ensure you drill the holes in the exact place you need them. There’s no need to do any manual measurements or guesswork, which makes fitting this pretty easy.

There are three modes of lighting, the most useful being a security light that kicks in when its sensors pick up movement (a feature that works very well). It’s a very bright light, and much more impressive than I expected.

I’m really impressed with this solar light and would definitely recommend it. It’s very easy to fit, and due to the solar charging, you don’t have to worry about hooking up any power source!

This is an awesome bit of kit. It’s very small and compact, a lot smaller than I expected, and delivers exceptional quality. When I tested voice calls on it I found the quality to be as good as using my phone. Most things like this have me leaning in closer so that the other person can hear me, but that wasn’t an issue here. The other great thing is that the person I was speaking to didn’t hear themselves echoing.

The devices feels well made is is very easy to set up. Simply plug it in and tune your cars radio into the same frequency displayed. Once that’s done, you’re ready to pair your smartphone with the transmitter and from there you can bluetooth music and voice. It’s that simple.

The car charger has a second USB port so that you don’t have to sacrifice charging your phone while using this. Another big bonus.

All in all this is one of the best in car bluetooth transmitters I’ve used. The audio and voice functions are brilliant and I can’t find a single thing to fault.

This is an absolutely awesome little camera. I really didn’t expect much from it at first, and thought it was going to be a lot larger than it is. In reality, it’s a very small and compact little device, that looks discrete and well made.

Once plugged in, I hooked it up to the wireless and downloaded the app. The viewing was unexpected, and much better than I thought it was going to be. The fisheye lens allows for the user to see a lot more of the image than most standard security cameras. If you pinch the image or video feed, you can then zoom in and pan around the image, getting a better look at whats happening. It’s hard to explain why, but I preferred this much more than having to control the camera and point it at what I wanted to view. This just seems faster and more efficient.

The camera itself is a relatively small and well made device. It is powered through microUSB so you can plug it in easily and you don’t have to rely on a charger that only works with this camera. You can also add a memory card to the device to capture and store local footage. The app allow for two way audio which is another big win.

Everything worked better than expected and I’m more than a little impressed. Well worth the money and I’d be interested to see what A-Zone’s other products are capable of!

  • Package Contents: 1*AUKEY PB-P8 12000mAh Dual Port Solar Charger, 1*3.3FT USB Charging Cable, 1*User Manual, 24 Month Worry-free Warranty

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


This is one of the nicer solar power banks I’ve used. They normally feel pretty lightweight and relatively cheap, but this one feels solid, durable, and looks pretty smart. The capacity is pretty large, giving you at least 3-4 full charges for a mobile phone, and 1-2 charges for a tablet. It also has two USB ports so you can charge multiple gadgets on the go, and the charging time doesn’t seem to suffer which is extremely handy.

The solar charging isn’t mind blowing, and it’s not going to replace your dependence on the mains, but what it does do is trickle charge the battery, helping to keep it topped up. This is great for those who want to give their battery that little extra life, but also for those who are hiking or heading outdoors. You won’t be able to completely depend on power from the sun, but it will keep the battery going for a fair bit longer.

As mentioned above, this device feels very solid. It has a rubberised grip around the side, to help protect it from shocks and drops. There’s also a torch on the end, in-between the USB ports. It’s nice to have in emergencies, and also comes in handy when trying to plug your phone in in the dark, but don’t expect anything amazing from it as the light is relatively low end.

All in all this is one of the better solar power banks I’ve used, and well worth the money. It’s not going to become your main source of power, but it’s great for those who are heading outdoors or camping.

Review: AUKEY Portable Headphones Bluetooth Sports


What starts off as an oddly compact set of headphones, folds open to reveal something great. When these things are folded close they really are tiny, fitting away in their snug little box that they arrived in, but once unfolded they fit perfectly, with very comfortable padding for my ears.

The design is very minimilist and the adjustable headphone sits comfortably over the top of my ears and around the back of my head. On the left is the Aukey logo, and on the right you have music and call controls which come in handy.

The audio on these is great, and although there is a little sound leakage they do a good job of blocking out background noise. They have a good, well rounded sound, and handle bass fantastically well. The sound quality matches what I’d expect from higher end headphones and I’m more than a little impressed.

Calls also worked surprisingly well on these. Voice came through loud and clear, and the microphone did a very good job of blocking out background noise.

The bluetooth connection was strong and reliable, and I experienced no drops during my usage.

All in all these are a great set of headphones. They are extremely comfortable to wear and lightweight, while at the same time offering fantastic audio. You really can’t go far wrong with these.

Review: AUKEY Portable Power Bank 12000mAh


This is a nice little power bar. It has two full sized USB ports to allow for charging of multiple gadgets at one time, and the charge time isn’t impacted by this. The battery capacity is relatively large, offering around 4-5 charges for most phones which is awesome, especially when you consider that this isn’t exactly huge.

There is a small torch at the top of the device, which doesn’t really cast that much light, but if you’re ever stuck and can’t quite get the USB’s in place or if you’re struggling to find the charging port on your device at night then this comes in handy then.

It takes about 9 hours to fully charge this battery from my experience which isn’t too bad, but it’s worth noting that if you charge two devices on it at the same time it will discharge pretty quickly!

All in all this is a solid bit of kit. It’s not too heavy, and although it’s a little chunky, it’s a good size and very portable. Great for those who need multiple charges on the go.

Review: AUKEY Bluetooth Sports Speaker


This is a great little bit of kit, delivering good sound quality in a robust and durable body. It feels well made, and certainly seems as if it can take a few bashes and drops which is always handy for an outdoor speaker. It’s splash resistant, but you’ll need to avoid any heavy downpours otherwise this poor thing won’t survive.

The build quality is good and the speaker feels like it has a good amount of weight behind it. On top, you’ll find a host of buttons which will allow you to use most functions without reaching for your phone. You can handle both music and calls using those buttons, so there is very little need to grab your MP3 device unless you’re trying to change tracks completely and not just skip ahead. On the back you’ll find the MicroUSB port for charging, and also an AUX in, which is especially handy for older devices.

The bluetooth connection was strong and reliable, and I didn’t experience any loss of connection and the range was also pretty good.

So how does sound quality handle? On the whole, pretty good. I found that both calls and music sounded great, and the microphone apparently works well in call as I received no complaints from anyone on the other end of the call. The speaker offers a well rounded sound, although it is a little lacking in bass, but thats to be expected at this size and price point.

All in all this is a great bit of kit and well worth the asking price.

This is by far the best little massager I’ve tested. First thing, it doesn’t smell odd when you first open it unlike pretty much all others I’ve used. The material seems far nicer, softer, and just higher quality over all.

For what it is, it’s pretty small, but it still packs an absolute punch. As with all of these types of massager, it feels a little odd at first, but after you get used to it and allow it to work its magic you’ll find yourself enjoying it. I’m really surprised by how relaxed and how much better my muscles, especially my lower back and shoulders feel after using this.

As the device massages you, it also slowly warms up, giving a very relaxing sensation. Now, it does say you can use this in the car, which you can, but if you value your life it might be worth avoiding doing this. I personally think it’s too relaxing and could potentially cause an accident, so I’d recommend sticking with using this at home as it does also include a mains charger.

Seriously, this is an awesome device and really works wonders. Definitely worth checking out, especially at this price point.

This rugged speaker offers fantastic looks, and great sound quality. Unlike it’s smaller siblings, this thing is a little less portable if you aren’t carrying a bag around, but it does offer better audio quality making it the perfect companion for activities such as camping.

Connecting to this is exceptionally easy. Power it on, search for it via bluetooth, and you’re ready to start playing your music. The connection offers good range and remained consistent throughout my usage. The speaker also has an AUX input next to the MicroUSB charger which is a bonus. Both of these connections are hidden under a rubber seal to protect them from damage.

The speakers are loud, and the great news is that music and voice don’t distort at higher volumes. They are lacking in bass but considering the size and how rugged they are, they perform very well, and are surprisingly good at handling voice calls.

You also don’t need to worry about having your phone to hand if you want to handle calls or music, there are plenty of buttons on the top of the device to allow for this. You’ve got volume and track controls, play, pause, stop, and call answer and rejection. Basically everything you need.

One of the biggest wins is that this charges using a microUSB cable! Finally, no need to carry multiple cables and something that people will appreciate if they are camping and away from a regular power source.
