5 x Disposable Dehumidifier Review

Five Stars

Great for wardrobes and damp rooms!

This pack of five dehumidifiers arrived in a long, large cardboard box. Each unit is separately plastic shrink wrapped, with a foil seal preventing moisture getting into the chamber.

They’re as simple as it gets to activate. Just remove the plastic wrap, clip off the blue lid, peel off the foil seal (making sure you don’t damage the white membrane), then put the blue lid back on.

Neckband Sports Earphones review

Five Stars

Really nice design that holds well and sounds great!

This headset arrived in an attractive retail style printed box, that was well designed and held the earphones perfectly, displaying the button part nicely inside. In the box were the headset itself, a very short (but well designed) micro-USB charging cable, and a decent set of instructions.

The earbuds were soft and fit perfectly in the ear, hardly visible in use. The cable holding the earpieces together is soft and long – long enough even for a large head like mine, with room to spare. It’s got a really cool magnetic clip in the middle, which holds each earpiece together, and hides the USB charging port. The cable is nicely moulded into each earpiece, so it’s not just going to pull or fall out.

Long, leather wallet review

Five Stars

Really nice, quality leather wallet.

This wallet arrived packaged in a protective sleeve, inside a resealable plastic pouch. A label was attached to the coin purse zipper, and the note space had a polystyren wedge keeping the wallet’s shape.

As I opened the packet, a lovely strong smell of new leather emerged. The leather appears to be extremely high quality, very soft yet holding its shape. This is a long wallet – it’s not going to sit in the back pocket of your jeans, but it really will suit an inside blazer pocket or similar.

iPad 2/3/4 tempered glass screen protector review

Five Stars

Perfect protection – even hides existing scratches!

I’ve been using tempered glass screen protectors on phones for a few years now. They vary in quality (and price), and I don’t think I’d be without one. I never thought I’d need one for my iPad as it’s always behind a standard Apple cover, then I got a 1 inch scratch across the screen and regretted it… 🙁

Reviewing products on Amazon

Recently, I’ve started a new hobby; providing product reviews on amazon.co.uk. If you review products regularly, and make sure your reviews are comprehensive (not “does the job”, or “this is rubbish”), sellers let you have products free, or at a discount, in exchange for a fair and honest review. The reviewing hobby becomes very addictive, seeing what products sellers will provide for review, and also how high you can get your reviewer ranking with Amazon (at the time of writing this post, I am just outside the magic top 10,000 reviewers at 10,844).

Apple iPad Mini

It probably escaped many people’s notice, but last Friday was launch day for the iPad Mini, and iPad 4th Generation.

The release of the 4th Generation iPad made me a little fed up, as my 7 month old device became obsolete, but not as unhappy as a colleague who had only purchased his 3rd generation device about six weeks ago.
