I believe that you should have at least one power bank per person in your home for an emergency. In most homes nowadays, for example, the home telephone is a cell phone. If your power is out for the day, and your phone goes dead, that could be serious in an emergency. Almost everyone has flashlights, phones, tablets, and more that have internal batteries that need to be charged. This way, you will always have back up power in an emergency. Power banks, like this 8000mAh power bank from Wotech, can be used when you are out and about, or on the road for work, and more. My husband uses a power bank daily. They really come in handy. This particular one is well made, and highly portable. It measures out at only 5” long x 2 ¾” wide, and ½” thick. It does come with a micro USB cord to charge it with. It does not get hot to the touch while charging. I love the denim look, as they call it. It’s a very sleek and sporty power bank. When fully charged it will display 4 little blue LEDs. Each LED represents 25% of its power level, so it’s easy to see when your power level is down, and you need to recharge it. There is a power button on this unit. It’s located on the face plate where the ports are. If this gets pressed by accident, it will shut off after being on for a minute without anything plugged into the USB port. The two ports are different. The one closest to the power button is the 2.4A max output port. The other port is the 1A max output port. It has over-charge protection, over-discharged protection, over-voltage protection, over-current protection, and short circuit protection. This power bank even charges my son’s highly finicky Samsung 3 tablet. It is really picky on what it will charge with. I have never had an electronic device like that one before, lol. I can easily charge his pad from empty, as well as my Galaxy Note 5 from empty on this power bank. I even have some left over. Overall, I am very happy with this power bank. It works very well and is highly portable.

We use Bluetooth headphones all of the time in my household. They are well loved, lol. My guys live and breathe with them, since they can use them at work and for working out. They always need to be able to take calls as well. With Bluetooth headphones like these, they can continue to work and drive, and still take calls from inspectors, head of the company, clients and more. These headphones are perfect for them, and very slick looking. The design is very modern, and professional. These Vomach Bluetooth Earphones come with a small micro USB charging cable, and 2 pairs of extra silicone earbuds. The controls are on the right ear. The micro USB charging port is on the left ear. The controls are on the right ear are a +, – and multipurpose button. The multipurpose button is on the top, and the other two buttons are on the backside of your ear. This is pretty easy to remember. These headphones have Bluetooth CSR V4.1 technology. You can even connect to two items at the same time. After you connect with the first item, turn off your Bluetooth. Then connect the second item. Now, go ahead and turn the Bluetooth back on the first item. The sound quality is pretty great, it really is. They have noise isolation as well. Lol, I keep yelling at people when I talk while the music is playing. The bass and instrumental sound well balanced, and clear. Music is really enjoyable with this set up. These talk to you, so there is no guessing. It states things like: Power On, Pairing, Power Off, and it even spells out the incoming call. On the right ears’ + button and – buttons, you long press these to adjust the volume, and short press to either move forward in your play list or restart your song. For the price point these are at, they are awesome. You can get about the usual 30ft away from these, just not down the hallway, around corners, or behind doors. These do get about 5hours of playtime, less if you play the music really loud. If you only use these for calls, maybe closer to 6 hours of battery life. These have in internal 80mAh battery. These also get 200 hours of standby time, and only take a 1 ½ hours to charge. Not too shabby. I really like these headphones.

Since they are the over the ear design, they really stay in place well with movement. These Viivria headphones from O’Plaza come with a storage case, a small micro USB charging cable, and 2 pairs of extra silicone earbuds. These headphones have the controls set up on a bar off of the right ear. I like this set up. It is really easy to do without looking. These also have voice control, so when a call is coming in you can say yes to answer and no to decline. How great is that! These headphones have Bluetooth 4.1 technology.

You can get about the usual 30ft away from these, just not down the hallway, around corners, or behind doors. If you have an IPhone you should be able to detect the battery status on these. I have Android, so I do not have that ability. They do get about 4 ½ hours of playtime, 180 hours of standby time, and only take a couple hours to charge. Not too shabby.

Power banks are definitely an essential every home should have nowadays. It’s just as essential as having back up batteries. We use ours for work, travel, emergencies, and when we can’t access an open outlet, lol. This particular power bank is by Poweradd. They call it their Pilot P1. It has an internal 5000mAh battery, as well as a 2A USB out port. Your power bank will arrive with 1 micro USB cord. That is how you charge it up. When fully charged you will see 4 blue LEDS lit up. They go down as you use it. The lights are on the side by the power button. It’s a lightweight unit, and measures out at 5 inches long and 2 ½ inches wide. It is also just under ½ an inch thick. Aesthetically it’s a very sharp looking power bank. I love the textured design. Power wise, it works wonderfully. It has smart charging capabilities. It will detect your device right away and provide what it needs. It charges our Galaxy Note 5 phones very quickly. We were able to charge our phone and a bug vacuum, and still had 25% battery life left on it. You can use this for anything that charges via a USB cord. If you have IOS products, you will need to provide your own cable. The same goes for other specialty charging cables. I plugged my phone into a regular power source, and my husband used this power bank. We were both at about 20% power left. His phone was fully charged, where my phone was still at 69%. So, this charger definitely charges quickly. This is really a great back up power source.

We like vinyl in my home, lol. Not the usual statement you will hear from someone, but it’s true. Whether we stick them to our car windows, or our laptops, they are a fun way to express yourself. It’s fun being able to make your own from home. It has a gratifying premise to it. This package by Innoweb Powers has 10 sheets in it. There are 5 white sheets and 5 black vinyl sheets. Each sheet measures out at 12” x 12”. The thickness is 3mm; so it’s a great thickness to work with. The back of each sheet of vinyl has a measured grid on the back of it. We do not have a Cricut machine, or any machine like that, but this ran through our printer perfectly. We had to cut the sheet down, and it ran right through. We chose to print the design out on the back of the sheet, and then cut the design out easily. My husband wanted the Punisher symbol for his laptop, so we did that first. Since the quality of this vinyl is top notch, it was a very smooth process. The vinyl sticks really, really well. It is rated to last 3 years in the outdoor environment, and 5 years in the indoor environment. This vinyl does have a permanent adhesive backing, and is not recommended for walls. This is not the peel and stick vinyl people put on their walls. So walls equal no! This material is obviously waterproof, since it has a three-year life span outdoors. You can decorate wine glasses, serving dishes, and the like, if you so choose to. It would be a very economical way to decorate the outside of votive holders, and wine glasses for a wedding, or special occasion. You can decorate a special vase to pull out on birthdays or anniversaries. There are endless opportunities, and we find it fun to do. They do have other color options available, as well as larger quantities. You can go all patriotic and order the red, white, and blue options, or be pretty in pink, and just order pink, lol. There are other color choices as well. I am very happy with the quality of this adhesive backed vinyl. I have no complaints.

Haha, this cable reminds me of the divided teams, households. In this case, though, it’s Apple verses Android, lol. We are a family like that. My sister and her family all went Apple, and my direct household is currently Android. For divided households, this cord is perfect. It has the usual USB end on one side, and then a double sided head on the other. The top of the cord is the lighting cable end. If you pull up on this, you can snake the micro USB end out, to use that one. The lighting cable end has a cap that you can keep on it, when not in use, to protect it. This cable is 3.3ft long. I ordered it in the fun, bright green, but it is also available in pink, yellow, blue, white, and black. So, there’s a color for everyone. I was able to still get fast charging from this cable, which was a big relief. I do have a strong charger though, so that does need to be taken into consideration. This is a flat cable. I love that design. I do not twist these up nearly as much as regular cords. The connection points were done well. The USB and micro USB both fit nice and tight in my ports. I had no trouble fitting it to my phone with the Otterbox Defender case on it either. Some chargers won’t fit, but I had no trouble with this one. So far, I have had reliable, and quick charging with this cable. I like the bright color cable, it’s easy to spot. If you are a dual Apple/Android Family, then this cable will really come in handy. It’s also great to have if you do a lot of carpooling too.

I think we all own at least one set of headphones nowadays. Be it wires or wireless, they are a necessity with our electronics. Wired headphones can be more useful than Bluetooth ones. They have some advantage with clarity. My husband and I notice a big difference for the listener, in their clarity when using wired headphones over Bluetooth ones. There is s much less background noise, or road noise with wired headphones. These wired headphones from Pwow, have a sporty look to them. They come with a clip, to help keep the wire still when using them for a call. It actually makes a big difference during a call. Otherwise the mic could be rubbing across your clothing, making for a hard to hear call. These are small, and fit nicely in the ear, for a low profile look and feel; I like that. The bar for these headphones is located a little ways down from the left earbud. That is where the button is to pause your music, or to answer and hang up from a call. It works pretty well. It’s easy to answer without looking. With wired headphones you don’t have to worry about the battery on the headphones dying on you during a call. Which is very important if you use these while working, like my guys. The sound is pretty clear with these. Both the bass and instrumental were pretty good. The cord on these is pretty long, which makes these doable with running and working out. They work really well with my Note 5 phone. The 3.5mm plug is nice and snug in my port, it has no play to it. They fit very securely in ear. You can shake, bounce, jump, and wiggle, and they stay put in my ears. These are a little unique, because a little ways down from the first bar with the call/pause button on it, you will find another bar with a volume slide switch. You can adjust your volume up and down with this bar. It only goes so far, so if you have the volume up higher in your phone, that is the highest the volume will go to. It will always go down to silent though, which is good to have. It really fast to adjust since it’s a slide switch. I measured these at 52” long, after being plugged in to my phone. I am very happy with the sound quality and clarity. The long wire surprisingly doesn’t tangle easily on me either. These even arrive with a spare set of earbuds. I am very pleased overall with this pair of wired headphones.

I use headphones if I have to take a call while driving. I only accept calls from my husband and kids. But, when I do, I’ve noticed that wired headphones tend to deliver a lot clearer calls for the other person, over Bluetooth headphones. Road noise is a huge problem for the listener. Wired headphones can cut a lot more of it out compared to Bluetooth. I’ve experienced the same. My husband drives a lot for his regular job. He talks to me using headphones. If he wears Bluetooth ones, I am always asking him to repeat himself. That can get annoying for both partners. I really like these wired headphones. The shape is unique, but they sit well in ear. They do not wiggle around on me, and are pretty comfortable to wear. They have a mic, and a button to accept and hang up from calls. This same button will also pause your music when you need to. This button is located on the wire on a little bar. It is readily accessible without looking, which is great when you are driving, or working. These headphones have a metal casing and “exclusive tuning technology triband clear, natural, unique sensing technology to suppress high frequency glitches”. That’s a mouth full. They really do keep the music sounding enjoyable, and clear. Very clear I must say. It’s very relaxing to be able to sit and just enjoy your music without interference, or glitching. They also come with 2 pairs of spare silicone earbuds, and a velvet drawstring storage bag. These also offer some nice noise cancellation as well. They used neodymium iron boron magnets to move coil drive units in each earbud. This allows the smooth music play. There is a higher sensitivity response and a broader frequency range because of the magnets. I honestly wasn’t expecting such nice sound out of a pair of headphones that only cost $11.99 right now.
Here are some specs from the manufacturer: “Specifications: Driver units: 9.7mm. Rated impedance: 16 ohm. Sensitivity: 110dB. Frequency response: 20Hz -24000Hz. Distortion: <1% . Channel balance: <2 dB. Maximum power: 20mW. Gold plated plug: 3.5mm.”
I love the wire on these. It has a slick covering to it, and it really amps these up aesthetically. Overall, they are pretty sharp looking. I really can’t find one negative with these headphones, and I looked.
