5-in-1 Home and Car Charger for Phones Review

54df15a2dcdba54dc524b742987245db57819737

 

**Guest Review by my husband Justin Lowmaster of Connected2Christ.com **

The R1f6 chargers work rather well. Previously at night was using a wall charger I got cheap and it only had one port and wouldn’t fully charge my tablet overnight if it was low on juice. And it didn’t stay in the wall all that well. The Rfio one can charge 3 devices at once, and is sturdy, stays in the wall, and easily charged my tablet overnight when it is low.

The car charger is of the same stock as the wall ones. Sturdy, and can charge three devices. One of the car charger ports is only 1A output while the other two are 2.1A. The singular one is perpendicular to the others, so you know which it is without having to read the labels.

The design is simple and compact. There are two USB cords included and they are of good quality. The car charger has an led light on it so you can find it in the dark if it is plugged into the socket.

All of the chargers have claim protection from overloads and short circuits. Additionally they claim to protect from overheating. I’ve not had any problems like this, so I can only assume their are valid claims.

Instead the money to get 5 of the aforementioned cheap chargers, and be limited to walls only, and one device each, you can get this kit and get two wall chargers which charge two devices at 2.1A each, and the car charger with slots for another three devices you can charge on the go! A fantastic deal.

I’m happy to have replaced my wall a d car chargers with the Rifo ones. They work as advertised, and feel sturdy and look nice while doing it.

Sony HDR-PJ430V High Definition Handycam Camcorder with 3.0-Inch LCD {Review}

sony2Sony HDR-PJ430V High Definition Handycam Camcorder with 3.0-Inch LCD is an exceptionally impressive model, in my opinion. The features are many and all make this camcorder totally worth checking into if you are wanting a high quality camcorder to shoot just about anything indoor or outdoors that you’ve set your heart on.

It’s very easy to use, basically hit record and you’re well on your way. There are options and setting that you can choose from with the handy touch screen interface. You can even create and edit videos before uploading them to your computer. Though if you just want to import it all directly from the camera and edit after with the included software, you can choose that option as well. The camcorder is very light and comes on as soon as you open the LCD screen. I didn’t find my arm or hand tiring in the least after extended use.

Subjekt HerPhones Petite Earphones {Review}

herphones

The SUBJEKT HerPhones Petite earphones are made specially designed for those with small ears. I was very eager for the opportunity to use these having always found most earphones on the market to be way to big for my ears. I’ll have to say after using these for over a week now, I’m pretty happy.

I’ve used HerPhones to listen to music, audio books, tv shows, & movies. They are compatible with just about any portable device such as iPods, iPads, iPhones, Android, Windows Phones, Blackberries, among others. I specifically used them with my Android phone, Nexus 7 Tablet, and plugged them directly into my desktop computer.

Fellowes PlushTouch Wrist Rest with FoamFusion Technology {Review}

fellowes-B008CO4NGS-img1

The Fellowes PlushTouch Wrist Rest with FoamFusion Technology is a top notch product. I wasn’t surprised with the quality as I’ve been using this companies products for years ( as a graphic designer, the wrist rests for using the mouse or stylus are a must have!). I’m also a blogger and I spend a lot of time on the computer writing up post so my wrist need some relief!

I found the product to be very comfortable. I use a standard desktop keyboard and have had no height issues of the wrist rest. I could totally tell a difference in using this product relieving any sort of adverse pressure. The foam is very comfortable and quite soft. It has great non-skid backing keeping everything in place while typing. It has Microban antimicrobial protection too which helps keeps the product cleaner!

The product has held up well thus far and I expect it to continue to do so for a long time. I did notice a bit of a strong smell from the bottom of the wrist rest when I first got it but it seems to be fading away. I am docking a star because of the strong smell which I know some people can be really sensitive too. But other than that, it’s a good wrist rest!

Want it? You can purchase the Fellowes PlushTouch Wrist Rest with FoamFusion Technology in the color black or graphite on Amazon.com right now for $15.00. There’s also special $2.00 off coupon on site you can use too!

Plus Motif Tablet Case Covers by Papier de Maison {Review}

2013-04-03

I’ve been a tablet owner for a little over two months now. My Nexus Tablet used quite a bit for my blog writing, reading books, taking notes, responding to emails, watching movies, playing games, and more. It’s pretty much an extension of myself in our digital age. And I knew with my budding love of my tablet being constantly used, I needed a case for it. But not just any case, I wanted a case that is currently functional in many different ways as well as appealing to the eye. A girl has has to have her accessories!

Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset {Guest Review}

corsair

Guest Review by: Justin Lowmaster

I thought I had some good headphones, then I got a pair of Corsair wireless ones. I loaded up Star Trek Online, and I heard noises I had never heard before in the game!

My first experience with the wireless was a little spotty, I got interference quite frequently, and all audio stopped for a few seconds now and then. I had the dongle on the front of my computer. I used the included extension cord and plugged it in the back of my computer and put the dongle near my monitor and I now have only infrequent interference. A lot less then I had issue with the cord on my previous set of headphones. The range is plenty good.

They are very comfortable, and fit fully over my ears, rest of my head, and dampen external sounds. They don’t get uncomfortable with extended use normally, and if they do, I just reseat them and all is well again.

Charging the headset is easy, just plug in the USB cord. You can wear them and use them while plugged in if you have to. There are helpful blinking lights so you know when it is charging, or charged, or needs charged,

There is a large button on the side to turn them off and on by holding it down for a few seconds. There is also a spinning volume control accessibly located on the left earpiece under the power button. The mic tilts up and down nicely. It’s stiff, not bendy, which I like. Might break off, however, if struck or bent abnormally. I didn’t test that out, obviously.

The drivers rotate sideways which makes it a lot easier to store the headphones, even if just setting them down on a flat surface (or the precarious paper pile that is my desk).

The sound quality is fantastic. From the bass to the treble, I can hear the rich soundscapes of games, to the many ranges in music.

Want?

You can purchase Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset (CA-9011115-NA) on Amazon.com for more than 50% the regular retail price!
