Goal Zero Yeti 500X Review: Portable Emergency Power When You Need It

Earlier this year, there was a massive power crisis in Texas that came as a result of severe winter storms, leaving over 4.5 million homes and businesses without power, many for several days. This inspired me to have a backup source of power for our home, should something similar ever happen. Fortuitously, I was offered a Goal Zero Yeti 500X for review, and we now have a solid solution. Released last year, the Goal Zero Yeti 500X is a mid-sized rechargeable portable power station that looks much more modern that the gas-guzzling generator my mom had that would power much…


Periodic Audio Rhodium DAC Review: Ups Your Audio Game Without Breaking the Bank

When Apple removed the 3.5mm headphone jack from their mobile devices, we saw explosive growth in the wireless headphone market. Sadly, it was also another step toward prioritizing convenience over audio quality. As we have seen, some wireless headphones deliver exceptional sound but, there are times when you want the BEST sound. That’s where the Periodic Audio Rhodium DAC comes in.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 4G Review: Thin and Light and in Many Ways Just Right

It’s easy to get enamored by all of the flagship phones being released by phone makers, but what if you don’t necessarily need (or want) something with 5G, the fastest processor, or a $1000 price tag but still want a great camera?

Lemi Shine Review: Cleans Your House and Leaves You with a Clean Conscience

If there’s one thing we learned after a year in a pandemic, it’s that keeping things clean is always a smart idea.

Lemi Shine aims to solve this by using citric acid in place of harsher chemicals — all of the clean, less risk of creating a Batman villain, still have a clean house!
