Zomei T388 2Pcs Mini Walkie Talkie

These little things have a large range

I gave these 5 out of 5 stars

          After reading the other reviews I was nervous that these walkie talkies would not work. They arrived and I opened the box. They felt like toys but they had all those buttons so I had to try them out. Each radio uses 4 AAA batteries. I can't say how long the batteries last because mine are still going. We turned them on and they were both on channel 2 but there are other channels available. You also can scan through all 22 channels. There is a push button to turn the volume up and down. There is a talk button, call, menu power buttons and more. There is a lamp button that turns on a flashlight on the top of the radios. There is also a headphone jack on the top. We tested the distance. One of of stayed put and the other walked away. We were about 1/4 a mile apart before we started hearing any static, but we could still hear each other. I was impressed with the range. I gave my son and granddaughter each a walkie talkie radio and they had a blast. If they have a range of 1/4 a mile, then they will work great in my house and yard. Other kids radios only reach about 15 feet so these are significantly better. We like them and have fun with them.

DBPOWER 2.7" 1080P FHD Dash Cam

The picture is very clear

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          So far I have not had any problems or issues with the DBPOWER 2.7" 1080P dash cam. It is working great. It has a 120 degree viewing angle, a  4x zoom lens, G-sensor, and motion detection. It records onto a microSD card and up to a 32GB memory card can be used. Any larger and the camera will not recognize the card. There is a car charger and a USB cord included with the camera. When it first arrived I plugged the camera into my computer to charge it up. I put a memory card in it and it would not read it. After thinking I received a broken camera, I unplugged the camera from my computer and it worked perfectly fine. When I had it plugged in, it was trying to act like a sort of external drive, so don't make that mistake like I did. There are many settings that can be adjusted, loop, motion, picture and much more. I set the date and time then I changed the loop recording from 3 minutes to 5 minutes. It will record in 5 minute increments and when the card is full it will start overwriting the previous recordings. A mounting suction cup was included. It was easy to put on and it stays on securely. The picture is very good quality. If I want to save something I put the microSD card into an adapter card, then I select them and drag them from the memory card over to a folder on my computer. I like how this camera works. The battery does not last very long so I keep mine plugged in at all times.

Wincooll Clip on Laptop Cooler with Vacuum Fan

It really helps keep a laptop from heat damage

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          This Wincooll clip on laptop cooler does a good job of keeping my laptop from overheating. It comes with 2 rubber attachments that fit on the cooler so it can vacuum or pull out the heat away from the laptop. There is a clip on top of the cooler that holds it against the laptop. It comes with a USB cord that powers it. There is a switch on the side that adjusts the wind. It is portable and can be used with most laptops. I tried it on my usual laptop, it is a 13 inch ultrabook and it does not fit with it. The air goes out the back of my laptop, not the side. I put the cooler on back of it and positioned it so the cooler did not move and it really helped to keep my laptop cool. There are times my laptop gets really hot and this was a help. I put it on my other laptop which is a 15 inch and it fit it really well. It also works extremely well. To use this effectively just make sure your laptop's fan exhaust is on the side.

Looks cute but it's a killer

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars

          I like any device that helps kill mosquitoes. This OUTXPRO electronic mosquito bug zapper helps get rid of those creepy bugs that only come out when It is getting dark. The kind of bugs that bite and fly around making a scary buzzing noise. This is a small LED solar powered lamp. It can be hung up ot it can be placed into the ground. There is a spike and a couple plastic pieces the make the lamp sit less than 2 feet off the ground. It has a switch on/off switch so you can choose the UV light or the LED light. It can be a cute little light or a bug killer. The best part is that it is solar powered so it if totally free to charge it. It can last all night on a full charge.

It doesn't kill a lot of bugs but it does help kill them. I received this item at a discounted rate to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

E-More® Fashion HK3960 Ultra-thin 2.4G Wireless Keyboard and Optical Mouse

This is a stylish set that works well

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars 

          This E-More ultra-thin 2.4G optical mouse and wireless keyboard combo is great. I really like the style and the colors that are available. I ordered pink and I like the brightness of it. This combo comes with a clear silicon cover the keyboard. These devices connect to the computer by a USB wireless receiver. It gets plugged into the computers USB port and it should be ready to use right away or within seconds. It is compatible with Windows XP up to Windows 8. I have Windows 10 and as soon as I plugged it in the devices were working, so it must be compatible with Windows 10 too. There is no on or off switch on the keyboard. There is a on/off switch on the mouse. There is also a switch setting to turn on the decorative lights on the mouse. I found the mouse comfortable to use but I am use to a thicker mouse. This one is quite slim. There is a scroll wheel and the buttons are silent, there is no clicking noise which I really like. I am very happy with this set.

Abba Patio 10 x 15 ft Outdoor Heavy Duty Pop Up Portable Instant Event Tent

Looks good, heavy duty

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          This Abba 10 x 15 ft outdoor heavy duty portable tent is really nice. It is a white When I opened the shipping box there was a long black case with a couple different storage compartments and wheels on the bottom. I unzipped the case and inside was the folding frame. I pulled it out and together with my husband, we pulled the frame apart until it was opened up. After it was fully opened, we set the heavy duty white cloth canopy on top or the frame. Then we lifted the 4 legs up so the tent was a lot taller. There are velcro strips that go around the canopy to hold it in place. Although this tent set is not lightweight, there are 8 spikes included to hold the canopy down so it doesn't move or blow away. There are directions included but they are very basic. I think we need to re-adjust our tent frame because it seems too low. If someone were to walk under it they may bump their head, so I will be fixing that. It is not hard to assemble, it is just hard to do alone. Extra hands are very helpful. I think if we had an extra person to help us we would not need to re-adjust it. This tent is awesome for parties and cookouts. We will be using ours this weekend for a Memorial day cookout and get together. I looks really nice and it is very good quality. There are no walls on this but there is velcro so I can purchase them and easily attach them. I received this item at a discounted rate to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Battilo Luxury Cable Knit Throw Blanket

Very cozy and comfortable
I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          I like this Battilo cable knit throw blanket. It is gorgeous and it is a deeper blue than in the listing. It is 50 inches wide and 70 inches long. It is nice and big and cozy. I will be snuggling up in this blanket when it gets cold out. I is knitted so it looks kind of like a sweater. It is made out of 100% acrylic so it will last a long time and it feels soft. It can be put in the washer to be cleaned.  It can be used as a blanket or a trow to decorate the couch. The pattern and color looks very nice. This blanket came neatly wrapped in a square with a pretty ribbon bow around it. It would make a very thoughtful gift, especially for someone that is always cold.

Folding Serving TV Tray Table

It has plenty of room

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars

          This folding serving TV tray is a very lightweight. It can hold food and drinks as long as they are not too heavy. The plastic is pretty thin so do not overload it so the legs do not get wobbly. This is excellent for kids to eat off of. It would also be good for kids to play on. They can color, play with clay or other activities. There are 2 cup holders on the side which is convenient. With Fathers day coming up, my son and I plan on using this try to serve my husband breakfast. There is plenty of room on it for drinks, silverware, plates and more. The tray is 18 long and 10-11 inches wide and it is 8 1/2 inches tall with the legs extended. I received this item for free to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Men's Nylon Tricot Shorts with Pockets

Long and comfortable

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars

          These men's tricot shorts are very good quality. They are made of 100% polyester and they have a thin fleece lining because without the lining, the shorts would be see-thru. They have 2 front pockets and 1 zippered back pocket. You can keep money in the zippered pocket and not have to worry about losing it. I usually wear a men's size large so just in case I ordered an XL. The XL fit like a large so I am happy with my size choice. While they were comfortable, these felt just a tad tight in the butt. I am a 6 foot tall woman and when I put these shorts on they came down past my knees, so they are very long. My son is even taller than me so I am going to give him these shorts. He likes long shorts since they are so rare for him being so tall. The waist is elastic and there is a drawstring to tighten them up. I like the stripes on the sides.
