Coolden iPhone 6 / iPhone 6s Kickstand Case Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Really nice case, with a cool kickstand feature.

Inside the Amazon box, this item was packaged in a clear-fronted, retail style resealable plastic packet. Despite the very reflective and metallic appearance, this case feels very rubberised and soft. The gaps between the “metal” weaves are clear silicone style plastic, and sort of give away the nature of the material.

The rubber is very soft and pliable, so it slips nicely onto your phone and holds really well. All the ports are there, with cutouts and button covers all in the right place, nothing is difficult to get to, even the mute button.

MAOZUA Mini USB Humidifier Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Whisper silent yet really effective!

This item arrived in a strong, protective, brown cardboard box. Inside the box were the humidifier unit itself, a spare wick, an instruction manual, a flat USB cable, and a cup matching the humidifier unit.

The humidifier is sort of water lily shaped, and it can sit in any container with water in, such as a cup or vase, as long as the top isn’t submerged. The wick draws in water through the side of the “stalk”, and the tiny piezo pulsing unit at the top sends out the moisture in cool misty clouds.

KoolZone Car Windshield and Side Window Shades Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Really great Windscreen shield, interesting side shades!

This is really two separate items, the windscreen sun shield, and the side window shades. All the items came in a single, large, zip sealable plastic bag, with the side shades in their own smaller version of the bag, inside the larger one. The windscreen shield was in its own handy pouch, inside a protective plastic packet, inside the main zipping bag.

When you pull the windscreen shield out of its pouch, and let the hoops pop back into their normal shape, it’s BIG. You can see why it’s universal, because it’s both huge, and when you overlap the hoops, it can be small to fit smaller windscreens. It’s a shame there’s no basic instruction reminders on how to reset the hoops to their smaller sizes, but I’ve had similar beach mats and tents, so have the hang of just twisting them like a screw to shrink them down again.

BestFire Portable LED Camping Light Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Brilliant and versatile little camping light!

This item arrived in a glossy, retail style box, inside a strong, protective, brown cardboard box. Inside the box(es) was the unit itself, it would have been nice to see some included batteries, but for the price you can’t really argue!

The surprisingly small lamp twists in the middle, to open and show you the battery compartment, which takes 3 x AAA batteries. Put in the batteries, close up the unit, and you’re away.

BestFire Portable Handheld Fan Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Amazingly powerful miniature fan, with multiple uses!

This item arrived in a glossy, retail printed box, inside a solid brown protective cardboard box. Inside the box(es) were the unit itself, a clip to act as a desk stand, a USB charging cable, and a really large rechargeable battery. It’s a shame the battery isn’t a standard size, so you can use normal batteries if this one dies outside charge range, but as it’s 2200mAh, it’ll last over 2 hours even at full power, and I don’t think you’ll use it at full power most of the time!

Put the battery inside the easily accessible recess, clip the lid back on and you’re away. The power of the fan is controlled by a small variable switch, so as you turn it, it powers on, then the power gets stronger the more you turn. It goes from a gentle breeze, to something akin to an aeroplane engine!

MPJ Extra Large Microfibre Cleaning Cloths Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Four Stars

Brilliant large cloths, really soft and effective!

Inside the Amazon box, these cloths arrived packaged folded together inside a sealed Jiffy bag.

There were six large cloths in the bag, and a single small cloth (as advertised), and they all had the MPJ logo stamped into the bottom right hand corner. It’s a shame that these don’t come individually packeted (or even in a single nicely resealable packet), because if you start popping them in drawers or bags, they’re quickly going to pick up dust and grit, and you really don’t want to be wiping that across your delicate screens.

BestFire Kitchen Scales Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Excellent, versatile scales in a very small package!

This item arrived in a glossy, retail style box, inside a strong, protective, brown cardboard box. Inside the box(es) was the unit itself, a pair of batteries (nice!), and two protective caps that double up as measuring trays.

Pop in the included batteries, and take off the covers, and you can power on the machine. There’s a really easy to read screen, with large digits and an awesome blue backlight. I was so surprised at how small this unit is – if you’re using large mixing bowls, you’ll probably want to be looking elsewhere, but if you’re just looking to weigh heavy things (up to 3kg), not necessarily large, then these will suit you just fine.

BestFire Folding LED Desk Light Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Very versatile light, with a nice, white output!

This item arrived inside a strong, protective, brown cardboard box. Inside the box was the unit itself, the clamp, and a relatively short micro-USB charging lead.

The base (which houses a rechargeable battery unit) of the lamp is quite heavy, so without the clip attached it sits really nicely, and you can position the arm however you want it. There is lots of movement in all the sections, so it’s unlikely that you won’t be able to position it perfectly for you.

BestFire Clip On Lamp Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Very strong clamp, really bright light!

This item arrived inside a strong, protective, brown cardboard box. Inside the box was the unit itself, protected in bubble wrap.

The clamp at one end of the unit is extremely strong. I’m six feet tall, seventeen stones, and have chip shovels for hands, and I still found this a struggle to keep open for more than a few seconds. There’s not much chance of this slipping off whatever you’ve clipped it to, but there’s a good chance of losing fingers, so be careful!

Etekcity Infrared Thermometer Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Useful, versatile and accurate – nice little carry pouch!

This item arrived inside a protective retail packaging box. The retail box is highly attractive, glossy with bright colours.

Inside the box were the thermometer itself, including end cap, a nice, velvety pouch for the device, and a useful instruction manual, with decent illustrations. It was nice to find that a pair of AAA batteries was already installed in the device, with a plastic pull tab to stop them losing charge whilst in transit.
