Esolom WiFi Smart Plug, Mini Smart Socket Outlet with Energy Monitoring, Compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, Timing Function, Remote Control Your Devices Anywhere, No Hub Required – 2 Packs



Awesome plug! The long slim design works great wall outlets because it doesn’t block the second outlet!! This plug works great with the “Smart Life” app which is a must for all the smart plugs I buy! Smart Life has an awesome Alexa skill that allows these plugs to be used with Amazon Echos or any other Alexa enabled device!! Smart Life also works with other brand outlets which is a must for me!

Note: A home hub is not required for these plugs but also know that these plugs won’t work with hubs like Wink! If that’s a must for you, look elsewhere.. but know that Google Home, Alexa, and a lot of other devices can communicate with this outlet via “Skills”, “app” or whatever

Note 2: These outlets work with other Apps but I have always used Smart Life (which the outlet recommends). Just keep in mind, the features I mention in this review are based on the Smart Life App

Pros
1.) Uses Smart Life App
2.) Plugs can be named (if using smart life app.. other apps might also allow names).. naming the plug allows you to say “Alexa, turn off the Aquarium Light” and if the plug is named aquarium light Alexa will turn it off
3.) Allows imer function (if using the smart life app)
4.) Smart Life App is compatible with other brand smart plugs

Overall: Great Plug! I highly recommend it

NEXGADGET Powerhouse 210Wh /42000mAh Laptop Power Bank, Portable Outlet Lithium-ion Power Supply for Camping Emergency Backup with DC, AC & USB Output

210WH (Watt Hours) is a lot of Energy packed into a small device such as this.. Think of 210WH as being able to power 2 100Watt light bulbs for a little over and hour each.. That’s a lot of energy considering most TVs, Laptops, Tables, and other devices are well under 30Watts and most under 15..

For example, this SHOULD be power my 28Watt TV for nearly 8 hours if all goes well! (Keep in mind, the powerhouse itself does require some power to operate it’s fans, sensors, and other parts). With that being said, I only expect to get 6 – 7 hours using my TV with this..

Here are my actual results

1.) TV – I got a little over 6 hours using my TV with this.. Pretty good eh?

2.) Mobile Phone – I got over 8 charges and still had power left, a lot of power.. I also charged one tablet during this time.

3.) Laptop – 3 Full Charges

Pros
1.) Small Size – This is the smallest form factor for this capacity I have seen

2.) Silent operation

3.) Works Very Well

4.) Includes carry case

5.) Charges virtually anything

6.) Powers virtually anything under 100Watts

Cons
1.) TSA – This is over the 100WH TSA rule meaning it shouldn’t and probably won’t be allowed on a plane

Overall: Excellent Device, so far I am very happy

MixMart 24000mAh Power Bank with 3-USB Ports & 1-AC Outlet for All Laptops, Tablets, Smartphones

Use: I grabbed this to use with my Microsoft Surface on the go! USB powerbanks don’t offer enough power to really charge the surface!!

Short Review: Excellent CHARGER and it last for a very very long time if just charging from the USB ports. When you turn on the AC outlet, it does drain the external battery VERY quickly but did offer enough power to charge my surface fully over 1 time WHILE I was using it!! To me, this is excellent performance! Final note, you can use the AC outlet and USB ports at the same time and provide powerful charging to multiple devices!!

Pros
1.) Very Durable – This is a large device so I have accidently dropped it a few times but no issues!
2.) AC Outlet – This is the best part of this power bank! The AC Outlet can be used on several devices (See list of my test below).. Depending on the device, it might drain this power bank fairly quickly however.. My surface can drain it from 100% to empty in right over one full charge (while the surface is being used).. To help you visualize this a little better. the Surface batter is UNDER 5500mAH and this battery bank offers 24000mAH in power
3.) TRUE 24000mAH battery – when using the USB ports, this battery does seem to be a full 24000mAH.. It charged my phone over 6 times with no issues on a single charge.. My phone has a 3500mAH battery .. 3500mAH X 6 Charges = 21,000mAH and after 6 charges I have power left so it will probably charge it fully one more time if I needed it to
4.) Rubber Finish – Being a larger device and semi heavy, this grip is very welcome
5.) 3 USB ports
6.) Emergency Light
7.) Can charge my Surface and Mobile phone at the same time
8.) Can charge multiple devices QUICKLY at the same time

Tested AC Outlet with
1.) Microsoft Surface – 1 full charge while being used
2.) Desk Lap – Powered for 5 hours and still had power left! The lamp was however using an LED bulb
3.) Cell Phone Charger – Tested just for the heck of it.. The battery drains much quicker using the Cell Phone Charger vs a USB port but it does work.. Id recommend USB port for charging tablets and phones
4.) Paper Shredder – Using it for business I tested with a paper shredder and it worked wonderfully all day!!
5.) Computer (With power strip) – I tested with the computer and monitor only (Didn’t want to overload it) and received about 25 minutes!! This is about average for smaller APC units.. I would say this is very impressive!

Tested USB ports with
1.) Nexus 6P – 6 full charges and power left
2.) IPhone 6 – 6 full charges and power left
3.) Kindle Fire HDX – 4 full charges but plenty of power for MORE full charges
4.) Generic Android Phone (With small battery) – 8 full charges and plenty of power left
5.) Nintendo 3DS – Plenty of power left after several charges
6.) GoPro, Yi Action Cams, and YI M1 Cameras – Charged all with no issues

Cons
1.) Size – This isn’t huge but it is much larger than a standard 24000mAH power bank! I really hope over the years, companies can make these smaller because they work wonderfully well!!

Basically, it should work fine with ANY USB device that allows charging over USB.. It should work with MOST AC Outlet devices as well!!

Overall: Simply impressive device!! One I would recommend to anyone! For my use, it works GREAT..
