The Yuneec Breeze Is a Fantastic Budget Drone for Beginners

The Yuneec Breeze is an interesting entry-level drone, as it’s equipped with a 4K camera, is controlled with your mobile phone, weighs just under one pound, and is extremely portable. It can be flown right out of the box with very little training required, so it’s perfect for beginner pilots. The Yuneec Breeze will set you back around $399.


FABRIQ Is a Smart Speaker at an Even Smarter Price

To call the FABRIQ speaker cute is a fair assessment. It is fair… but it is incomplete. Because while the FABRIQ is a small, cute, Bluetooth speaker, it is also a smart speaker that integrates with Amazon Alexa, has an affordable $49 price, and offers multi-speaker connectivity. Those last two points, price, and multi-speaker connectivity are an especially nice combination.

The Honeycomb Sound Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Review

Of all the Bluetooth speakers I’ve reviewed, the Honeycomb Sound Wireless Bluetooth Speaker has to be the most unusual — in looks, anyway. The honeycomb body is made of ABS plastic (I thought it was aluminum at first) with iron speaker grilles; the design is beautiful, but how’s the sound?


Olloclip Core Lens Set for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus

Olloclip burst onto the scene a few years ago, and they proved that while the iPhone’s camera might be great, this accessory could make it even better. The company has since rolled out numerous iterations of their lenses and kept adapted to each new iPhone design. The Core Lens Set is designed to work with the Apple’s latest and greatest.


The Maverix Urban Spirit Electric Skateboard Is a Blast to Ride

Electric skateboards are a hot trend now that batteries and motors are getting smaller and Maverix has hit a sweet spot in the market with their Urban Spirit skateboard.  The Urban Spirit can cruise up to 14 mph for up to 7 miles on a single charge.  A great board for beginners, the Urban Spirit will set you back $499.


BioLite CampStove Bundle Keeps You Fed and Charged

I love being in the outdoors whether it is camping, hunting or both. Temporarily living off the land is great fun but I do always stay connected with my phone. Not only do I have to plan on how to cook, but also how to charge. The BioLite CampStove Bundle ($199.95) allows users to cook and create power to charge. 



The Rockwell Chrome Series Double Edge Razor Is an Affordable Luxury

The Rockwell Chrome Series Razor is a reincarnation of Rockwell’s popular Stainless Steel 6S razor made with a more budget-friendly material without losing any of the style and functionality Rockwell fans have come to expect.  This modern take on the classic safety razor, an adjustable razor that can be used on all faces, can be pre-ordered now starting at $25.


TimoLabs Corbett I S Waterproof Speaker: Great Sound for a Great Price

It’s easy to get caught up purchasing only brands that you recognize or using price as an indication of quality when shopping for a Bluetooth speaker, but by doing that you lose out on a lot of really great options. One item that you might miss if you shop like that is the TimoLabs Corbett I S Waterproof Speaker.

Not your ordinary set of earphones, no sir. I recently had the opportunity to test the new ROAM GameON in-ear headphones and they seem to have set the bar higher when it comes to portable music and gaming. Co-created by ROAM and Atari, the new GameON units begin arriving just in time for the holidays.

Scosche is known for their great quality speakers in the past, and I was recently given the chance to review the BoomBOTTLE H2O+. Once again, the brand does not disappoint with their new waterproof portable speaker; it has a beautiful design and even better sound.


Find Your Stuff with the Chipolo Plus

Since we now have a Schlage Smart Lock on the front door I often simply carry my car fob with me when I go out. Thing is, the car fob is so small that I often misplace it. That’s where the Chipolo Plus comes in.



Lenovo Yoga Book: A Versatile and Unique Android Hybrid

I’ve had the 12.9″ iPad Pro since it came out, and while there are things I absolutely love about using a larger tablet, lugging it around isn’t one of them. Add on a detachable keyboard or case, and it suddenly weighs as much or more than a Macbook. For portability and features, the Lenovo Yoga Book 2-in-1 is downright attractive.



Monster SuperStar HotShot Brings Great Music on the Go

Bluetooth speakers have become quite common and almost like a tool. The SuperStar HotShot by Monster ($49.95) is a super compact speaker with the ability to clip onto a backpack, jacket, or belt. Does a speaker this small still bring sound worth listening to? I was able to review the HotShot and my findings might surprise you. Let’s take a…


The FryWall Is a Microwave Cover for Your Stovetop

Have you ever been in the kitchen cooking dinner, and once you’ve finished you looked around your stove top only to see food residue and grime stuck between the stove top and counter, and splattered on the walls? There’s a new product that might eliminate that extra cleaning you need to check out.


Casio Tough Solar Running Watch Has Energy Even When You Don’t

Back when I had time to train for long races, I used a Garmin Forerunner GPS watch. I liked it, it was great, but there’s something to be said for the simplicity of a digital watch that goes from your workout to your everyday life with ease, even if you lose the GPS capabilities.
