CRONA iPhone Cables

My daughter and I have used this set of Crona iPhone Cables for a few weeks now. We each have an iPhone 5S and have used these cords exclusively to charge them. In this time, we have gotten no error/ incompatibility messages, nor had any trouble with them.

There four cords are coming in handy around the house and in the car. The 6’ cord is being used on the living room sofa so we can charge at either end with no problem. We use the 3’ cables at both a chair and a love seat. The one’ cord I have at our desk. I have synced my phone there, and I charge my phone there overnight. Then it is powered for the next day.

One thing I particularly enjoy about these chargers is that they do not fray or tangle due to the durable nylon and the aluminum shell.

These cables are durable and should last even up to six times longer than others. Especially indicating a long life ahead is the reinforcement at the stress points. The texture of the cables was a bit off-putting at first, but I am getting used to it.

These Crona iPhone Cables have an 18-month warranty that offers either a full refund or replacement.

If you want a set of these four cables for yourself, here is the link.

Here is my original review. I hope you like it  :-).

RFID-Blocking Leather Women’s Wallet

This RFID Blocking Genuine Leather Women’s Wallet is cute and practical. It is seemingly ageless, as nearly everyone can use it. My young adult daughter loves it, I use it, and I am past middle age, and I can imagine seniors proudly toting it about town. Seriously, this style it has is both timeless and classical. I get an Audrey Hepburn vibe from it myself. The colors are gorgeous! It comes in black, purple and red. I bought the red, and it is beautiful.

I appreciate the roominess of this product. It holds my photo ID and other vital cards, such as my bank, credit/ debit, punch, savings and store cards. It can hold bills and change (zippered change purse). Two large zippered compartments hold at least nine single cards; then four large compartments contain cash or other items, including other cards if need be. The zippers are modern, yet retro at the same time. The wallet is custom-made; impeccably designed and stitched.

In the irony department, as I was putting together this review, I became aware of fraud against my account via a pop-up notification. Do not be deluded into thinking it could never happen to you, as it strikes people of all walks of life. It has happened to my family several times. This latest incident occurred across the country. At least I know it was not the result of the theft of my card, nor of it being scanned by thieves. After all, I have used RFID protective sleeves and wallets for many years. I have gifted them to some loved ones, too, so maybe they would not fall victim to predatory acts. Too bad a charming wallet cannot protect online identity, too.

Your RFID Women’s Wallet comes with a guarantee of full refund or replacement should you be dissatisfied.

OSCOO Car Air Purifier, Ionizer & USB Charger (Rose Gold)

This OSCOO Car Air Purifier Ionizer & USB Charger comes in a gift-worthy white box. I would suggest it for anyone on your list, but those who spend a good deal of time traveling need this gadget. Likewise, anyone who has a smoker in there or who has asthma or any breathing condition. There is a warranty card enclosed, as Oscoo offers a limited one-year guarantee. Besides that, there is a little pamphlet (it is plug and play, after all).

Although I love it for its performance, it does not escape me that it is simply gorgeous. I bought it in Rose Gold. I have been using this car ionizer for a month now. It has been working wonderfully. You know it is working as there is a blue light that glows when you plug it in. The light is pleasant and not terribly blinding, which is important in a vehicle.

Negative ions help ease stress as well as take care of smells. They can lessen the symptoms of asthma and other conditions.

It still seems a bit like magic to me, but if you have spent any time near the ocean, you might remember how it made you feel. I have only had the experience a few times. Those are some of my all-time favorite memories. There was just such a feeling of well-being.

As for this technology, I knew it seriously worked years ago when I got a “new to me” vehicle. There was a nondescript stale odor in the car. The previous owner had noticed, as there were umpteen “pine tree type” air fresheners scattered around the vehicle. Nearly resigned to the situation, I researched possible solutions and took a chance when I bought one. As it turned out, mere days after plugging it in, my olfactory sense picked up– nothing!

As glad as I was that the ionizer took care of the problem of the odor in the car, I admit wishing that it doubled as a charger. Whenever my family needed to plug in a phone or tablet, it meant I needed to swap one out with my purifier. Now that we have this model, the charger capability is there for us anytime. The charging is fast, with its Quick Charge 3.0 technology. My iPhone 5S takes about an hour for a full charge.

Beyond the dual tasks of ionizing and charging, it can save lives. Seriously, it has a safety hammer tool that can be used to break out a window in case of an emergency. Buying something useful like this charger that has this added benefit makes more sense than getting a gadget having a single purpose (which no one hopes to use).

Naturally, the more you are in the vehicle, the more you will appreciate the difference and reap the benefits from this device. My late husband used to drive trucks. If he were still doing so today, I would have gotten him this charger so that he could keep in touch with us, enjoy a healthier environment (important especially in such close quarters), and could protect himself (or others) in an emergency. On second thought, I would not have gotten the same one. He would have preferred the other colors more. :-

APEKX B1 Bluetooth Earbuds – Immersive Sound— Even From Lower Volumes

These Apekx  B1 Bluetooth Earbuds have sets of S/M/L butterfly ear hooks so that they fit nearly everyone. They are comfortable in my ears and stay put as well or better than others I have owned.

On a charge, you get over five hours of time to talk or listen. If you run them completely down, they charge quickly enough. It takes just around sixty minutes. The standby time is supposed to be 180 hours; which is incredible to me.

The most important factor is the sound quality. I mainly listen to music, but occasional podcasts and videos, too. The sound is full, with good bass and clarity. It is an immersive experience. Ambient noise gets filtered well. My daughter and I tested them together. When she wore them at a normal volume for her, I could not hear the song she was playing. The same was true when I had them on. Also, we could not make out what the other person said when we had music going. That said, of course, these are not the earphones to wear if you need to be aware of your surroundings.

These are the pair I wear when I can just lose myself in the music for a while– whether I am working at my desk, performing other tasks around the house, dancing, or relaxing. Music has always been the saving grace in my life. I take it seriously.

Apekx might just get that the soundtracks of our lives mean a great deal to us.

I suggest gifting this pair to someone who has a penchant for turning the volume too high because they want to hear everything and get an immersive experience from their media. They might just turn it down and save their hearing possibly.

These Apekx Bluetooth Headphones come with both a 30-day money back guarantee and a one-year warranty.

Bonebit Fitness Tracker Watch

This Bonebit Fitness Tracker Watch boasts a long battery life with an estimated 7-10 hours standby time and four days operating time on a full charge. To charge the watch, just detach the wristband and plug the end into an available 5V/1.0A USB power supply.

Using this heart rate monitoring personal device is simple. It does need a smartphone. It is not compatible with a computer or a tablet. This watch works with iOS 7.1 and above and Android 4.4 or above. You will need to download the free “Veryfit for Heart Rate” App from either the Apple Store or Google Play.

The sedentary alert is more convenient than the Chrome extension I had used. It still reminds me to get active often, and it goes with me. I expect to use this watch for more activities with increasing fitness levels. Primarily, for now, I am using the step counter. It is motivating me to increase my walking distance every day. It does take about thirty steps or so for the tracking to begin. Little changes can have long-lasting ripples, and I am looking forward to reaping the rewards on down the road.

The other feature I must brag on is the sleep quality monitoring function. I used to have an app that I loved that performed the same duty, but it no longer works. I have an adrenal condition, and frequent insomnia and knowledge about what is happening during sleep cycles may prove invaluable in reversing these difficulties. This Bonebit Fitness Tracker Watch is the right “step” for me at this “time.”

USB-C CARD READER

This ICZI USB 3.0 Type C Adapter Connector makes transferring files, photos, or videos between a micro SD or SD card and your Type-C laptop or smartphone easy and quick. The connector is smaller than most flash drives I own.

No drivers are needed, as this is a plug and play adapter. Use this device for Micro-SD, SDHC/ SDXC, and TF. Data transfer is fast. You can use this 3.0 device even with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1, as it is backward compatible.

You can use this adapter with the following computers: Chromebook Pixel, Mac OS V9.0 and higher, Win 98/ 2000/ XP/ Vista, and 7. This adapter is compatible with the new Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus as well as any other smartphone that is USB-C OTG.

I prefer using this adapter over connecting by a cord. It is simple. Photos are no hassle anymore where I used to dread the chore and let too many accumulate before removing them.

The ICZI USB-C Card Reader has a 30-day return policy and a one-year warranty, so there is no risk.

Hong Bo Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

These Hong Bo H901 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones come with three sets (S/M/L) of ear hooks and earbud tips, a micro USB charging cable, and a user manual. This H901 is a seriously quality pair. The sound is excellent and full. It is balanced. Nice! The bass is not going to blast you across the room, but it is perfect for me. The headphones have a variety of ear pieces so that you are guaranteed a great fit. I can wear these for quite a stretch without discomfort.

Pairing with the latest 4.1 technology is simple. I just press the button on the leftmost earbud after turning on my device’s Bluetooth. The voice tells you the power is on and then that there is a connection made. It could not be easier. I use these with my Kindle Fire 8, and I love it! This Bluetooth solution is so much better than putting a tablet in one’s pocket.

These headphones stay put in my ears no matter what I do, including working out. If you get a call, these will allow you to pick it up or reject it, talk, and then hang up. The talk time on a charge is 10-hours! When finished with the call, your music starts back where you were with no issue.

The battery is long-lasting on these Hong Bo earphones. The battery has never quit on me when I have needed it, as there is an 8-hour listening time. There is a 250-hour standby time. I do not need to charge them often, either. That is convenient. These are so good that I am buying another set for my daughter.

If you are interested in getting a pair for yourself, here is the Amazon product page.

Heiyo Stylus Fine Point Pen for Capacitive Touch Screen Devices – Silver

 

 

 

This Heiyo Stylus Fine Point Rechargeable Pen works well on my daughter’s Fire & and my Fire 8. The pen is the exact size of a new lead pencil. This writing device is only slightly heavier than the regular pencil. It is surprisingly lightweight for the look of it. It is comfortable to hold and has a balanced feel to it.

The pen comes in a box with a charging adapter and a diagram of the parts along with the shortest user manual I have ever seen. A short manual is enough here, as there is nothing too problematic about the pen operation. To start the pen, you press the start button at the top of the unit. A blue light flashes three times across the LED strip to show that it is on. After that activation, no other sign indicates whether the pen is on. Thankfully the pen will shut itself off after two-three minutes, so its charge is not worn down. You never have to worry about turning it off with this power-saving feature built-in.

The pen is compatible with iPads, iPhones, iPods, Kindles, Samsung Galaxy phones, tablets and touchscreen laptops; essentially anything that has a capacitive touch screen. I have noticed no lag when using this on my Kindle. I use it for routine tapping here and there, for simple games, and for writing lists, and feel it is responsive enough overall. There was a slight learning curve for me, as nearly all of my writing is on a computer or electronic device. Seeing my handwriting at first was a bit of a fright, but the longer I use it, the better it looks again.

The stylus tip has not scratched or in any way harmed my devices, which is always a concern as they are costly to replace. I am hoping my daughter will try some art with this pen and test it out with one of her apps. Although a thin fiber fine tip [2.2mm], I use extra-fine generally. When I am making lists or writing in a word processing program or app, I adjust the chosen tip to the finest one available so that I am happier with the control over the lines and with the finished product. I wish that replacing tips was possible with the Heiyo, but it is not at this time.

To charge the stylus, just remove the end cap to reveal the Micro USB underneath. Fit the adapter over the Micro USB and plug into a charging port. The LED indicator will glow with a reddish hue. It is simple and practically fool-proof to use and keep charged for the next time.

The Heiyo Stylus comes with an 18-month warranty and customer service should you ever need it.

LESVIEO 600Mbps USB Adapter

 

The Lesvieo 600Mbps USB WI-FI Adapter adds wi-fi capability to a device that does not already have it, extends wi-fi, or replaces a non-working connection. The package includes the adapter that you screw together, the CD with the driver/ manual, and the printed manual booklet.

The dual channel aspect is important as it supports both 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz. As most devices operate on 2.4 GHz, the band is saturated with traffic. Being able to access 5.8 GHz will result in a better connection and faster downloads. It is like traveling the high-occupancy travel lane or priority lane on a highway in the data sense.

You do need the capability of 802.11AC, which is the latest wi-fi technology to get the most of the adapter as far as range and speed. Lesser equipment will mean you can use this adapter still, but the performance will be commensurate with the capacity change.

My use of this dongle has been to extend the range of my wi-fi in my house and outside the house, where I sometimes like to work to get some fresh air and the sun. It is “plug and play” with Windows 10, which is what I use. I screw the two pieces together (it has a multi-angle rotation) and attach it to my laptop. That is it. Now my connection is good outdoors when it was spotty at best beforehand.

The wi-fi adapter has an 18-month warranty, so there is no risk. It also comes with lifetime technical support.

EnacFire Bluetooth Headset

Bluetooth Earbud, EnacFire Wireless V4.1 Mini Bluetooth Car Headset with 2 x Magnetic USB Chargers and 6 Hour Playtime Mini Bluetooth Headphone with Mic for iPhone and Android Devices (One Piece) (Wireless Phone Accessory)

This EnacFire Wireless Mini Bluetooth Earbud arrived in a sturdy box that is suitable for gift giving. It is surprisingly classy. The presentation has a quiet “wow” factor.

The contents include the earbud itself, not one but two magnetic chargers, ear bud tips, instruction manual, and a warranty card. All of this is packed in hollowed out foam for complete protection during shipment and storage in between uses.

I wanted to try the earbud out right away, so I plugged it into a USB charger so that it would have decent power to check it out thoroughly. Hours later I paired it with my tablet. It was as simple as turning Bluetooth on my Fire and pairing a new device. The earpiece showed up immediately. I selected it and voilà! Done.

I have tested it on phone conversations, in games, videos, and while listening to my music. It performed flawlessly in all applications. When I pushed the volume up to 100%, there was just a bit of distortion, but that was not a volume I would customarily use, so that is no issue to me. Phone calls are terrific. I have listened to music at times when it is important to hear surrounding sounds like a knock at the door, a phone, timer, or when my daughter is in a particularly chatty mood.

Comfort is critical, and this is a good fit for me. While some headphones and earbuds have a “pinch” here or there or some area of discomfort, this Enacfire Bluetooth device feels excellent. When I finish using it, I often delay taking it out of the ear, because it’s easy to forget I still am wearing it. I love it and highly recommend it.
