The Aogek USB Type C kit is an excellent kit to have on hand if you are the owner of a good  device that requires a Type C connection. What helps Aogek stand out from other manufacturers of Type C adapters is in their packaging. The kit comes in a relatively thick and sturdy plastic containers. The container has cut outs and cushioning that prevent the adapters from moving around whenever they are being transported. The cushions also prevent the adapters from falling out of the container and getting lost whenever they are in use.

The USB Type C to USB 3.0 adapters are aesthetically pleasing and feel like they are of good quality. The adapters easily snap into place and seem very sturdy when they are inserted into the USB Type C port of my Nexus 6p. However the USB Type C to Micro USB adapters are made of a flimsy white plastic. They easily fall out of the USB Type C port and I have already managed to lose one of them. This is really unfortunate because I tend to use the USB Type C to Micro USB adapters more often than I do the USB C to USB 3.0 adapters.

This is a great kit in terms of packaging and the quality of the Type C to 3.0 adapters, but the quality of the adapter I rely on the most seems to have been neglected when this kit was put together.

Pros:

  1. Great Packaging (Compact, Sturdy, Portable)
  2. USB Type  C to USB 3.0 adapters are sturdy, fit snuggly in my phone’s charging port, and look like they are made of good quality materials

Cons:

  1. Micro USB to USB Type C adapter appears flimsy and falls out of charging port

 

FENIFOX Wireless Keyboard with Multi-Touch Touchpad Whisper-Quiet Typing and Ultra Slim Compact for PC Tablet Windows (White)

FENIFOX Wireless Keyboard with Multi-Touch Touchpad Whisper-Quiet Typing and Ultra Slim Compact for PC Tablet Windows (White)

The Fenifox wireless keyboard is a basic wireless keyboard with a touchpad. It works well and has some neat features especially with the touchpad, as different gestures replicate certain mouse functions. I have two primary complaints with this keyboard. The first is that the instructions that came with it are printed in a tiny font size making them incredibly difficult to read. My second complaint is that the keyboard doesn’t always work immediately when the usb dongle is plugged into a new device. The instructions do not explain what to do if this occurs, however by contacting the seller I was provided with the following solution: turn off keyboard, unplug USB receiver, plug in USB receiver, press and hold FN and Backspace at the same time and turn on keyboard.

Pros:
1. Gestures on touchpad add more functionality
2. Lightweight and Thin

Cons:
1. Instructions are difficult to read
2. Does not always connect when moved to new device.

Adfilic Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

Standard

Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, Flash SALE, Cheap Powerful Top Boombox Stereo Rated Sound, Sony Portable, Works Best For iPhone, iPad, Samsung, Great for Outdoors, HD Bose Bass, Car Hands Free – Black

At only 4.5 x 2.5 x 2.3 inches, the Adfilic Bluetooth Speaker is very small. Despite the small size of this speaker, it produces a surprisingly rich and full sound. We have another bluetooth speaker that is about twice the size of this speaker, so you would assume it would produce louder and clearer sounds. However this is not the case. The small size of the Adfilic Bluetooth Speaker makes it easy to travel with and very portable. It can easily fit in a purse or pocket.

In testing this product, I played a large range of music styles and all of the music sounded great playing through the speaker. Connecting it to a device via bluetooth was very easily accomplished. Though I doubt I will utilize this feature, the speaker does have a built in FM Radio which works relatively well. The instructions were easy to follow. The only major difficulty I encountered was in adjusting the volume of the speaker. You have to hold down a button to raise or lower the volume and the button choices are not overly intuitive.

I am incredibly impressed with this speaker. Both the size and price of the speaker would lead you to believe that it wouldn’t have very good sound quality. I was in fact very skeptical when purchasing this speaker, but I shouldn’t have been because it is a really impressive device.

Pros:

  1. Small Size
  2. High Quality Sound for Speaker Size
  3. Excellent Volume Range

Cons:

  1. Volume adjustment not intuitive or easy to perform
  2. Button labels are confusing

Eastalent Solar Lights – 100 RGB LEDs String Lights

Standard

Eastalent Solar lights, 10 meters, 100 LEDS,RGB,string lights for Christmas ,waterproof,suitable for Outdoor, Gardens, Homes and Party (RGB)

I was pleasantly surprised when I received these lights in the mail. When ordering this product, I did not expect a very high quality light set. What I received far surpassed any of my expectations. When unpacking and opening the package, I immediately noticed that both the LEDs and the cord seemed to be made of a sturdy and durable plastic. These lights both look and feel far superior to your average Christmas light.

In order to test the functionality of the solar power source, I stuck the lights and solar panel in a window sill to charge. Again I was completely surprised by the these little LED lights. The lights were running for well over an hour before I checked on them. Not only did the lights keep running for longer than I expected, they were incredibly bright and vibrant.

Everything I received was in excellent condition. There were no lights out, the solar panel worked immediately and did not take long to charge, finally the controls on the back of the solar panel worked as indicated (On, Flash, Off).

  2. Bright, Colorful LED lights
  3. Solar Panel charges quickly and maintains power
  4. Arrived in excellent condition

Cons:

None so far!

GiraffeCam 1.0 Endoscope/Borescope Inspection Camera #Sponsored #PTRCVIP #AmazonDeals

Standard

GiraffeCam 1.0 Soft ShortFocus | Endoscope Borescope Inspection Camera | Android PC Mac | 5.5mm Diameter | 6.5 Feet*

We have been looking for an inspection camera as part of Spencer’s tool set for his small electronics repair business for quite sometime. When we came across the GiraffeCam we jumped at the chance to purchase it and test it out. The GiraffeCam Endoscope/Borescope Inspection Camera has met all of our expectations for an endoscopic inspection camera. It is a flexible camera with adjustable LED lighting and comes with some tools such as a hook that can be used to grab items using the endoscope.

We tested the camera with both Windows 10 and Android operating systems. In the Windows 10 environment, it is a true plug and play device and is very easy to use. In order to take photographs or videos with the camera on your Windows 10 device, all that is required is for you to do is to open up the camera app.

In order to use the camera on an Android device you need to download an application called “CameraFi.” I was a little disappointed with the application as it has quite a few advertisements as well as in app purchases. I coukd not get the camera to read on my Nexus 5X, but this may have been because I had to use a USB type C adapter with it. We were able to get the camera to operate perfectly fine on other devices.

The overall images and video taken by the camera are clear and have a better resolution than expected. Since we intend to use this for the repairs of computers, among other electronics, we opted to test the camera by using it to inspect the interiors of a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and Power Supply Unit (PSU). The camera provided detailed images and videos of the interiors of both components. The views obtained with the GiraffeCam were ones we could not possibly get with a traditional camera. In using the GiraffeCam we will be able to save time and labor by inspecting the interior of components without needing to take them apart.

Pros:

  1. Easy to use
  2. Excellent Resolution
  3. Useful tool for identifying problems
  4. Additional Extensions, such as hook and magnet, provide expanded functionality
  5. Plug and play on Windows 10

Cons:

  1. The Android App does not work for every device, has too many ads, and is not user friendly
