Review: GMYLE® 2500mAh Ultra-Thin Power Bank

This is perhaps the most portable battery I’ve reviewed to date. This slim line, compact device is fantastic to use and easy to carry around no matter what.

I’ve used and reviewed a number of portable batteries, almost everyone of them boasting far more power than this little device. The one thing they all lack in comparison is the super compact design.

Now it does have its draw backs. If you’re going on a long journey and you need a lot of power for multiple devices then this isn’t the product for you. However, if you are looking to use a portable battery on your daily commute or while at work, then this product is far better suited than most others out there.

I’ve found it very convenient to slip this into my jacket pocket, taking it out and attaching it to my phone when needed. The great thing about it is that it fits in my jeans pocket along side my phone without adding any real bulk. Its comfortable to charge and carry at the same time.

Also the fact it has a relatively short cable attached is a good thing as it means you won’t have lengths of cable sticking out of your pocket.

The charge time as relatively fast, only a tiny but slower than plugging my device directly into the mains.

As I mentioned above, if you’re after something with a lot of power for long journeys this isn’t for you. However if its just a daily power boost you require then look no further.

Out of all the power banks I’ve been sent to review, this one is by far the most practical to use on a daily basis.

Review: TaoTronics® Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Stereo Headset Earphone

The TaoTronics Bluetooth headphones are pretty impressive, especially when you consider the relatively low price. I used mine while on the rowing machine and also jogging and found that they stayed in my ears despite the movement. They are very small and compact and the wire isn’t long which really helps to prevent them from getting tangled.

When i first opened the headphones up I was dubious of the design. They are small and the only thing in place to keep them in your ears is a small rubber hook that fastens snuggly inside of your earlobe. My first impression was that they would slip out of my ears the moment I started to do anything, leaving me wishing that there was a clip to go around my ears, however, as mentioned above, they never slipped out of place during exercise.

The other thing that left me dubious at first was the small rectangular control box on the right earphone. It has volume controls, play and pause controls, microphone, and also a charging port. At first I thought the box would add too much weight to the right earphone, causing it to pop out of my ear, but somehow it remained fixed in place.

They are small, compact, and stylish, never slipping out of place making them very well designed for sports and exercise. The question is how do they sound?

Well the quality is pretty good, beating my Apple earpods which will hopefully give you some idea of the quality. At their loudest volume the earphones didn’t lose quality and my only complaint is that the bass isn’t great. However both music and voice quality is spot on and I really can’t complain.

Would I recommend these headphones? Definitely! For anyone who is after light weight and compact sports headphones that also offer good sound quality these are worth checking out. Despite my first impressions and fears, these headphones performed beyond my expectations which was a pleasant surprise.

Please note I was sent this product to test and offer an unbiased review.
