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.

Portable Handheld Fabric Steamer

This Notting Portable Handheld Fabric Steamer is a handy little tool to keep your clothing looking top notch. It is so compact at  8.25″ tall that it is perfect for travel as well as home use. It is light weight at just over one pound, too. The 140ml tank seems deceptively small, but you can go for a while before it runs out.

Who has time for ironing? Anyone. It takes only a minute to heat the water to boiling. Steaming your garments could not be easier. Fill the reservoir, plug the unit in, turn the switch on, wait about 60 seconds, then attack those wrinkles.

I have used mine mainly for my curtains and draperies and even my shower curtain. It is so much easier to do while they are hanging. It not only removes unsightly wrinkles, but it neutralizes odors and refreshes the fabric. I have used it on my daughter’s scrubs for work, as well.

The power is automatically shut off when the water level is low for safety. There is a 30-day money back guarantee as well as a 24-month warranty, so there is no risk.

OTYTY Tactical LED Flashlight

This OTYTY Tactical LED Flashlight comes in a durable and handy plastic snap lock box. Inside there is foam rubber on the bottom and top lids to protect the contents. The case has the flashlight with an attached wrist strap, the 18650 rechargeable battery, a cylinder for the 18650 battery, a holder for 3 AAA batteries as an alternate power supply, and a wall charger for the 18650.

I put the 18650 into the charger and plugged it in, figuring I would charge it so it would be ready for use when needed. The green indicator light signified full power status. Had it needed a charge, it would have glowed red instead. So I put the battery into the protective sleeve and inserted both into the barrel. I screwed the back on and pressed the orange power button.

The barrel expands and contracts to zoom: [x1, x250, x500, x1000, and x2000]. The beam at x1 is a small square of light which expands out into a huge circle by x2000. The light is quite bright, though it has a slightly bluish tint to it.

The power button has several different functions that it toggles through; namely, max, med, low brightness, strobe, and SOS. To change the mode, merely soft-press the button until your chosen setting appears.

I could not be more pleased with the accessories, features, and value of this flashlight.

Love Heart Birthstone Pendant

 

This Love Heart Necklace that I got for Mother’s Day features a simulated [cubic zirconia} version of my birthstone. My birthday is in October, so my stone is pink tourmaline. It is beautiful! It truly catches the light and looks spectacular. I feel pretty special while I have it on. I have received compliments on it already.

The 925 sterling silver chain is 18″ long. It weighs just 2.60 grams. It is a dainty necklace. Even though it is elegant looking, it is perfect for any occasion or even dressed down for everyday use. It is versatile. I would not hesitate to buy one as a gift for a loved one for a birthday or another occasion. It says “I love you” complete with gift box.

Cosmic Spinner Fidget Toy

My daughter and I have checked out eight spinner focus toys so far. This model made it to the coveted #1 place with ease.

Fidget toys have become a hot commodity and frequent topic of discussion. You have probably heard about the list of benefits elicited from their use. ADD, ADHD, anxiety disorders, Aspergers and Autism are just the “A-list” of examples. Bad habits are easier to overcome for some. Enhanced focus is a benefit for me. Downtime is a bit more enjoyable, too.

This is an EDC [Every Day Carry] toy. I had no idea until I did some research that there are at least fifty-five styles and types of fidget spinners. Then there are other fidget toys such as chains and cubes. You have more than thirty options from which to choose. It is a phenomenon!

The Cosmic Spinner Rainbow Fidget Toy is the cream of the crop of the eight spinners that my daughter and I have tested out so far. The look is among the best with the rainbow effect looking great, whether stationary or in use.

The durability is excellent as it is stainless steel and has a fast 606 ball bearing. It has real weight to it which is perfect for stability. I can flick it on my desk without having to hold it down as some models need. These traits are more for teens or adults. Parents and caregivers should consider if the child is old enough for this toy, as it could conceivably cause damage if mishandled. There are no sharp edges to worry about, however. Even though it is heavy metal, it does not pose a threat to even small fingers.

The size is ideal for single-handed play. Even my daughter who has tiny hands can use it in just her left or right hand. The most common size spinner is too large to do much that way even for me. The speed is better than any other I own.

Spins can last a good while. Most often I see longer than 4-minute turns. While writing this review, I timed them.

Duration Trial 1: 4:26

Duration Trial 2: 4:39

Duration Trial 3: 4:39

Duration Trial 4: 4:41

As you can see, the Cosmic Spinner Rainbow Fidget Toy performed consistently well. My intent was simply to document routine results. It is capable of longer times if that is your goal.

POAO Tri-Spinner Fidget/ Focus Toy

My daughter and I have checked out eight spinner focus toys so far. This model made our top three list.

Fidget toys have become a hot commodity and frequent topic of discussion. You have probably heard about the list of benefits elicited from their use. ADD, ADHD, anxiety disorders, Aspergers and Autism are just the “A-list” of examples. Bad habits are easier to overcome for some. Enhanced focus is a benefit for me. Downtime is a bit more enjoyable, too.

The POAO Tri-Spinner Fidget Toy was impressive from the start. With a durable ABS construction, this focus toy has heft and can take some punishment. Dropped on the floor many times, yet it is no worse for wear. It has professional inline skate 608 ceramic ball bearings. All four of the bearings are interchangeable and removable allowing for customization.

The spinner looks smart. It does not have multiple colors or lights as some do, but I think it is cool. It is plain black besides the inscription “POAO” and the steel inner and outer rings of the bearings. The center caps are removable if you wish to spin it on a pencil or a pen for another option. This focus gadget works well on any flat surface. I tend to use it on my desk. I also spin it between my index finger and thumb using either one or both hands. Sometimes I transfer the toy to either the finger or thumb, so it balances as it spins.

Of the eight spinners I own, the finger pads on this version are the best for controlling the toy. They have a texture that makes for a better grip than the slippery plastic ones. The grips help, but you will want to get used to this one before attempting tricks. I can vouch for the two-minute spin claim. It has been consistently getting spins longer than that when I have timed them.

It is slightly heavier (while slightly smaller in circumference) than the most popular size spinners. Dropping it on anything but the most padded surfaces will result in a racket. If you were thinking of sneaking it into a classroom that forbids spinners– just do not do it. The first major slip-up will result in every head turning your way. The toy itself barely makes a noise. It has a faint and strangely satisfying whir.

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.

ELUTO E11 Safety Certified 7-34″ Adjustable Airplane Seat Belt Extender

Years ago, when I was much heavier, I flew from New York to Idaho with a dear friend and mentor. I was terribly embarrassed when I barely fit into the seat. The armrests dug into my side, and there was no extender available for whatever reason. Mortifying! It only got worse as the man sitting in front of me put his seat all the way down and napped. I had no room to move whatsoever for the entire flight.

That was such a terrible experience that I do not want it repeated for myself or anyone I know. I saw this product and figured that buying this Eluto Seatbelt Extender was a small price to pay to have a better traveling experience– guaranteed.

This seatbelt extension impressed me when it arrived. It is quality material and durable. The buckle is 45# steel, and the belt is a high-strength polyester webbing. It is E11 safety certified, so I know that it will not fail, but will perform just as well as the given airline belt.

LIGHTSTORY LED Candelabra Bulb CA11 6W, LED Chandelier Bulb 60W Equivalent, E12 Base LED Bulb, 2700K, Dimmable LED Lights, UL Listed(6 Pack)

These energy-saving lightbulbs are estimated to save hundreds of dollars over the lifetime of each bulb. The lights are 6 watts or equivalent to a 60-watt bulb. I bought these for a chandelier in my living room. They look quite beautiful in there. The light is adequate. The bulbs cast a warm glow, rather than a harsher or more sterile bright white that some others possess.

I like that the LIGHTSTORY LED Candelabra Bulbs are eco-friendly. I am even writing this on Earth Day! They contain no mercury, no UV, and are UL listed. The lights are retro- Edison type bulbs, which works great in my space.

If you are interested in these bulbs, you can get them on Amazon here.

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.
