Universal 3-in-1 Phone Camera Lens Kit Review

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

Five Stars

Allows some really impressive pictures.

Inside the Amazon box, this item was packaged in a windowed retail box. Inside, adequately protected, were a basic information card (with warm tips!), a microfibre cloth bag for the pieces, two clips with differing sized screw holes, and two lenses, one of which is a combination of macro and wide angle. Each of the two lenses is protected with a lens cap.

The Fish-eye lens was the first to go on, it screwed straight into the larger clip hole, I took off the lens cap and clipped the item to the phone. It was easy to line up over my camera, and worked perfectly well even though I had a case attached. I was stunned how much more you got in a picture when using this lens. I have attached two pictures of Fifi the cat, sat on her stand looking to the left. One is with the lens attached, one without – they were both taken from the same spot, with the same zoom level.

Good Boy Rawhide Chomp Stix Review

Five Stars

The perfect, healthy treat!

Owning a chocolate labrador like Coco means treats are a requirement. Everywhere.

If we go out, Coco gets one of these sticks. 100 sticks lasts a good while – maybe not quite three months, but well, she’s a lab! They’re not full of fat or colourings or other nasties – they’re just plain old, healthy, desirable rawhide.

10,000 mAh Power Bank Review

Five Stars

Very nicely designed power bank, lasts forever!

This item arrived packaged in an attractively printed, strong protective retail box. Opening the box showed the power bank unit itself, securely held in a combination of cardboard and foam, and wrapped in a protective plastic sleeve to prevent scratches. Also inside the box was a decent length of Micro-USB charging cable (to charge the unit and/or a micro-USB ported phone), and a sensibly sized, well printed instruction manual.

Wooden Humidifier / Aroma Diffuser Review

Five Stars

Great looking, high quality device.

This surprisingly light item arrived in a solid, protective cardboard box. Inside the box was the humidifier / diffuser itself, the power block / lead, and a set of instructions.

The instructions are well laid out, and the product itself really looks the part, with the wooden appearance setting it off nicely. There are four different timer or rather countdown settings for the device (including always on), cycling through each using a button, which on the fifth press powers off the device.

Food thermometer review

Useful little thermometer for barbecue days!

This thermometer arrived wrapped in a bubble wrap pouch, inside an attractive retail box.

After prying open the battery cover, and inserting a single AAA battery, the device sprang into life. Pull out the probe, the device turns on. Clip the probe back into place, it turns off again.

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

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

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

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

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).
