The Aiper Seagull 1500 cordless robot I reviewed last summer has done a fantastic job helping me keep my pool clean. At CES last week, Aiper announced its new flagship Seagull line, with models including the Seagull Pro, the Seagull Plus, and the Seagull SE; Aiper has also introduced a limited edition Elite Pro. If keeping your swimming pool clean has become a tedious daily chore, Aiper can help you spend less time cleaning your pool so you can spend more time enjoying it.
We’ve reviewed several EcoFlow products in the past year, and they’ve all met or surpassed expectations. I was recently sent one of the EcoFlow Power Kits to see if it could run my RV camper off the grid. This post will be a walk-through of the product and how it works, and I’ll have another post soon covering my particular installation. Let’s take a look!
We’ve reviewed several of EcoFlow‘s products, and all have exceeded expectations. However, the company makes more than portable power solutions, and they’ve just announced three exciting new products today at CES! On top of the Whole Home Backup Power Solution announced today, EcoFlow is also adding the Glacier, Blade, and Wave 2 to their lineup.
Vosteed has joined forces with ReyLight to produce the Rook, a triple LED high-output compact EDC flashlight project on Kickstarter. The Rook has six brightness levels and 3 specialty modes and is excellent for various scenarios. It can be adjusted from moonlight mode of .5lm to turbo mode of 1800lm; in other words, there is a brightness level for any situation.
Many people ask me how long it should take for certain items to cook or smoke, and my response is always not to worry about the time but to cook by the meat temperature. The ThermoPro TempSpike promises to help manage cooking temps with the wireless probe and companion app. That means no more time spent opening and closing the lid and checking temps.
In the last six months, I’ve covered and studied a lot of alternative energy products. BougeRV recently invited me to look at their Yuma 200W CIGS Flexible Solar Panel. This is my first time using a truly flexible thin film solar panel, and I have to say it exceeded my expectations. Is it something that would work for your setup? Read on to find out.
If home is an apartment where the use of open-flame grills is banned on patios and balconies, you can still enjoy cooking outside with the Ninja Woodfire Outdoor Grill. Billed as a portable and compact electric cooker, the Ninja Woodfire’s primary function is grilling; however, it’s also a wood-infused BBQ smoker, air fryer, and outdoor convection oven that can bake, roast, broil, and even dehydrate. If the Ninja Woodfire actually delivers an enjoyable outdoor cooking experience anywhere with electrical power, then I can think of quite a few other uses for it, too. Let’s take a look.
About two years ago, I became a fan of BN3TH’s underwear and base layers. Between their quality materials, their “MyPakage” comfort pouch, and their fun designs, the company offers a wide range of boxers and base layers. BN3TH products can be on the pricier side, but I’m convinced they are worth the cost because they are well made with quality materials, long-wearing, and so comfortable. During the BN3TH Black Friday Sale, you can save big when shopping.
Harvesting and preparing our food is an integral part of my family’s life; a successful deer season helps provide us with food that lasts the entire year. Our favorite way to process the meat we hunt is to make sausage. I recently needed to clean out the last of our venison, which presented the perfect opportunity for testing the AAOBOSI Electric Meat Grinder.
We have reviewed many EcoFlow products here on Gear Diary and have had excellent results with all of them. EcoFlow products are high-level power solutions that, while all great devices, can be priced out of many budgets. Enter the EcoFlow River 2 Series, a trio of cost-effective, reliable power offerings that feature advanced LFP batteries.
We’ve reviewed several electric standing scooters over the past few years; most have been quite decent, but all of them are mere playthings when compared to the upcoming Maxfind G5 Pro dual-motor scooter. The G5 Pro is big and powerful; it is an electric scooter for people who need to go far and fast, and it is definitely no toy!
It breaks my heart, but the cold weather has arrived here in New Jersey. The leaves are turning. The days are shorter. And it is getting COLD. Before we know it, winter will be in full swing. Thankfully, I’ll be warm this winter thanks to the Men’s Venustas Heated Jacket 7.4V. It’s comfortable, and it’s heated. Yep, it’s heated.
The EcoFlow Delta Series is no stranger to Gear Diary, as I love the Delta Max with an extra battery. The recent release of the Delta 2 is a huge step forward in the company’s smart battery lineup by using LiFePO4 technology. With faster charging and a huge AC output, the EcoFlow Delta 2 Portable Power Station is perfect for emergency use or portable power.
LIVSN Designs is a relatively small company, but their products are great, and I’ve become a huge fan. I reviewed their Flex Canvas Pants and Flex Canvas Shorts, and they have become two of my favorite garments. They are tough, comfortable and, I think, look great. Now, the LIVSN Designs Reflex Shorts have also earned a place in my closet.
We’ve reviewed several power products from EcoFlow, including batteries, solar panels, and a Smart Generator. The company has branched out and added a new device that takes advantage of this portable power to keep you cool. The EcoFlow Wave is a 4,000 BTU portable air conditioner sold with or without an add-on battery; with the battery, it is perfect for keeping a smaller space cool, even when the power is out.
The EcoFlow DELTA 2 is now available for purchase. This new power solution comes with X-Stream technology, which offers charging speeds up to seven times faster than the competition; 0-80% in just 50 minutes from AC input on a battery this large is mind-blowing fast. The LFP batteries will bring ten years of life, and a huge 1800W AC output will run even more of your electronics and appliances, whether you’re going through a power outage at home, spending time in an area that doesn’t have electricity, or just trying to reduce your reliance on the grid.
Fall is on the way, and that means jacket time arrives soon. I’ve had a well-loved leather jacket Judie bought me as a gift, but when Angel Jackets reached out and offered a review sample of their dark brown men’s leather car coat, I jumped. Even so, I couldn’t help but wonder how nice a <$300 leather jacket could possibly be, especially when it is currently selling for just $199. The answer is, “Very nice!”
We have done a lot of cooking on Gear Diary, but we rarely have used charcoal. Sometimes burgers are just better cooked over some hot coals. Last night I fired up the grill using The Good Charcoal Company’s Premium Hardwood Lump Charcoal for the first time. How did The Good Charcoal perform?
Whether camping, traveling, or simply shopping in the city, we often need a way to keep food and drinks cold or frozen. Grocery shopping means a long drive, and insulated grocery bags are often insufficient. The Bodegacooler Portable Freezer (TWW75) 80-quart Dual Zone portable cooler and freezer is the perfect answer for all these situations.
We’ve reviewed several products from EcoFlow, with more to come. Today they’ve introduced a new portable power station that promises industry-leading charging speeds. The EcoFlow DELTA 2 is an ideal backup solution and will fit nicely in the brand’s ecosystem. This next edition of the DELTA Portable Power Station looks like an exciting new product.
We recently told you about SoftStartUp, a power management device for RVs. This innovative product doubles as a surge protector while reducing AC startup power demand by up to 50%. SoftStartUP is a game changer for RV and travel trailer owners struggling with power options to run air conditioners and other appliances.
