VicTop Jump Starter / Power Bank Review

Five Stars

I absolutely *LOVE* this bit of kit – awesome tool to keep with your vehicle.

Inside the Amazon box, this item was sealed inside a protective polythene bag. That’s all it needed because the strong, solid carry case will protect any of the contents from damage. The case has hard sides, an attractively coloured zip to open, and a carrying handle.

When I opened the case, I found out how much more than just jump starting cars this little bit of kit can do. There’s a UK wall charger to power up the unit itself, and a car cigarette lighter type charger if you prefer to do it on the move. There’s a lead for the variable voltage output, with lots of adapters, meaning it can be used almost as a universal transformer when on the move. You can select 12v, 16v or 19v, so it’s great for various laptop models. The only other thing I could wish for is a 13A plug socket!!

Bestfire Car Humidifier Review

Five Stars

Surprisingly powerful little humidifier, beats any other car freshener on the market!

This item arrived in a plastic resealable packet, clear at the front, white at the back, inside a solid protective plain brown cardboard box. Inside the packet were the humidifier itself, a spare filter / wick, and a nice, simple instruction leaflet.

Operation is simple – twist the bulb around in the cradle and unscrew the clear plastic bottle. Fill that with water (and a touch of scented oil if you wish), screw it back on, position the bulb in the cradle for the best place in your car, and plug into the socket. The bulb is quite flexible, so it should be easy to have the nozzle pointing upwards, whatever the angle of your car power socket.

Victop® Bluetooth Handsfree Car Kit FM Transmitter Review

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

Four Stars

Nice little unit – wish it could play music over Bluetooth!

This item arrived in a retail packet, with white back and clear front, showing the packet contents, which were the device itself, a nice little 3.5mm to 3.5mm jack lead, a spare fuse, and a simple instruction leaflet.

The car power socket plug is hinged to the device in a connector that folds to just under 180 degrees, so you can angle the device to suit your particular placement or vehicle. The colours and glossy finish suggest this is a really high quality device, as does the nicely backlit LCD screen. I love that the device has a USB socket at the front, so you can still charge your phone whilst using the device as a hands free kit.

Pensioners and driving

I’m no spring chicken anymore, at 43, and I’ve always loved driving. I’m really worried that the minute I hit 65 I’m going to have to rip up my driving license and throw it away.

I say this because of recent incidents I’ve experienced whilst both in cars and / or on the same roads as pensioners. The things they’ve done lead me to believe all pensioners should be chauffeured!
