Let me just say that I am blown away by the many features, technology and quality of the Maeffort Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speakers. Just saying that it is a wireless speaker, in my opinion is doing it an injustice. The speaker, Micro USB cable, Aux cable, instruction pamphlet were in the box. I plugged into a power outlet to charge before using it but it was already fully charged. I am still using that charge, about 4 hours use so far.

The developers thought of everything when they designed this device, the technology is very advanced.

First off, it has a touch screen. I have about 5 blue tooth speakers and none of them have a touch screen. There is FM radio, clock with alarm, USB port, Aux port, SD slot. Setting the clock was easy and it paired quickly to my phone. The FM radio auto scans and sets the local stations. Radio playback is clear with no static. Blue tooth, SD card and Aux playback are also clear with deep bass that is not distorted when the volume increases. I can also insert a USB flash drive with music. It is about 9 inches in length, which is longer than most mini speakers but it is lightweight.

There is a groove on the top where you can place your phone or tablet while you watch a movie or video. I really like this device because it is so portable and versatile, I can play music using 4 different modes. I keep it on my night table as a clock radio and it’s so easy to take it with me all around the house.

There is one con. It’s actually just annoying instead of a con. I do not like is that the alarm clock sound will continue until you stop it, but that is a sure way to definitely get up in the mornings.IMG_20170730_232553




This was drastically needed in my house. I do not have my computer or printer plugged into this but I am using it because of the USB ports. Everyone in my house has devices to charge and nowhere to plug them without unplugging another item. There is usually a maze of cables and cords around my outlets. I love that I can plug the USB cable for my phone or other devices directly in to the surge protector without searching for a wall charger adapter. Those things are never around when you need them. The Etekcity Wall Mount Surge Protector is well made with a power light. Fits well into outlet, is not loose and does not lean forward. I am going to buy another one to protect my computer and printer from power surges.



Very, cool binoculars! I received the Cobiz 10×25 Binocular Kids Outdoor Binoculars yesterday. They come with a carrying case, neck strap, and lens cloth. These are not a basic plastic kids toy but are very nice kids binoculars. Although the view is clear and magnification is excellent, they are kids sized. Lightweight with rounded sides that are perfect for small hands to hold easily. I compared the range and magnification with my adult binoculars and these are comparable. Everything that I could see with my adult binoculars, I could see with these. Product description states that the eye piece will roll down to use with glasses but is very difficult.


Ergonomic design, hard, sturdy, lightweight, rounded molding
Perfect width for kids
Easy to focus, fully adjustable
Excellent magnification, very clear

Eyepiece does not stay down when you adjust to use with glasses



I have used the timer on my smart phone when I am cooking but I am always terrified that I will drop it in a sink full of water. I decided that it would be in my best interest to get an actual timer. I received the Smartpro Kitchen Timer yesterday and I have played with it ever since then. It is very different from most other timers on the market. The first feature that I really like are the two magnets on the back. They are strong and actually keep the timer where I place it and does not slide down. It requires one AAA battery, not included. I read the instructions. The dial should rotate to increase or decrease the numbers. What dial? The entire bottom of the timer rotates. So cool. You can set the timer up to 99 minutes and 50 seconds. Very easy to use.

I started using bluetooth ear buds when talking on the phone due to severe carpal tunnel in my left hands and arm. My hands would get numb and tingle and I wasn’t able to hold the phone.The bluetooth ear buds were aggravating because I had to wait for the devices to pair. New technology is not always the best. The Daystyle Wired Magnetic Earbuds had everything I needed at an excellent price. Amazing clear, undistorted audio and I could increase the volume as loud as I wanted. The controller button on the cable allowed me to answer calls, end calls, control volume, skip songs, and pause. No fumbling with earpiece controls that I could not see. I really like these ear buds. The controller is nice but I just wish it was about an inch lower on the cable. Other than that, these are like high-end ear buds without the high-end price. I would definitely buy these again.  #FreeProduct



DreamSky Portable Alarm Clock With Timer And Smart Nightlight ,Time/Date/Temperature Display In 4 Angle ,Battery Operated ,Large Screen Display


The bedside alarm clock that I had for many years died and I was looking for another one. I noticed this one and ordered it. It has a large digital display that lights up when you rotate the clock. Yes, I said rotate the clock. Each 90° rotation display changes from time, alarm, timer, and alarm. I may just be a feature that I haven’t figured out yet but I have not been able to get the display light to turn on any other way. There is no button to press to brighten the backlight if I need to check the time in the middle of the night. The night-light is very faint. Rotating the clock to display time, temperature, alarm and timer is a futuristic concept but not practical for arthritic hands. The timer feature is excellent when getting ready to go out, time dinners, and many other uses. Displaying date and days of the week is also excellent. Let’s face it, some of us wake in the morning and do not know what day it is.

The pros with this clock:

Large digital display

Date and days of the week, year and date displays on the time screen.

Temperature screen in Celsius or Fahrenheit.

Timer and alarm.


Backlight is very faint.

No button to turn on the brighten the backlight. I can’t see the time when I wake up during the night unless I rotate the clock or find and put my glasses on.

The irritating beep when you rotate the clock and when you press the adjust and set button. There is a button to control the volume of the alarm but I could not find how to turn this sound off.

Overall, I would buy this again. It is perfect for teens bedrooms.



Fitbit Charge 2 Charger, Replacement USB Fitbit Charge 2 Charging Cable with Cable Cradle Dock Adapter for Fit Bit Charge2- 2 Pack(55cm)

Pink charger? The color is unique and different. Black cables and wires dominated the electronic world for so long. Manufacturers have recently ventured out with vibrant colors. I love the new trend. The USB replacement Charger 2 connects well to the Fitbit. The cable is the average length of USB cables. This cable has a voltage regulator inside to protect the FitBit from being damaged by current when charging. This is a great feature. My pros are the color, especially the color, they easily connect and the voltage protection. The cable could be slightly longer. Overall, I would buy this again. It is a very good bargain, two cables for an excellent price.



ROOCKE Meat Thermometer Instant Read Cooking Digital Food Probe Thermometer for BBQ/Grill

My Roocke Instant Read Thermometer arrived. The thermometer had batteries and a silicone brush included. I immediately wanted to roast, cook, bake, grill something. The problem was that I did not have a steak or chop in the house. I did have Nathan’s Jumbo Beef Hot Dogs. I Goggled the temperature of a properly cooked hot dog, which is 140°. I like my hot dogs very brown so I cooked mine to about 179° or slightly more. This is a very nice thermometer with lighted background, large digital read out and a speaker that gives an audio read-out. I especially like the long probe and the quick temperature display because my hands do not have to get to close to the heat. There is really nothing not to like about this product. Batteries came with it, unheard of and silicon brush. Great product, has a Large Back-light LCD Display, reads in Celsius or Fahrenheit, Audio read-out, quick read-out, and long probe. I can’t wait to try it on a meaty rib eye steak!
