Fish Tank Cleaner, KEDSUM Magnetic Aquarium Fish Tank Glass Cleaner, Algae Scraper Floating Clean Brush with Handle Design

Very large, very strong magnet, and cleans perfectly!! I am happy with this and find it works much better than those at my local petstore. The outside is soft to protect the glass while the inside is strong enough to clean!

Short Review: I own hundreds of 18650 flashlights but last year I had the opportunity to test a Wuben light and was blown away by it’s build quality, it’s features, and most importantly it’s price! I was not let down by this one either!
Pros
1.) Very Bright – I can’t officially say 1200 lumens is what this puts out because I don’t have a meter, but I can say it’s bright! I’m sure it’s as advertised
2.) Waterproof with extra gaskets!
3.) Wonderful BUILD Quality!!
4.) High Quality and safe 18650 battery is included
5.) Can charge battery from USB, using the flashlight. No extra charger needed!
6.) Includes high quality lanyard
7.) Easy and well thought out user interface
8.) Under $30! That’s an amazing value!!!
Overall: I can say I do highly recommend this light if you want something BRIGHT.. not everyone needs these bright lights but they do come in handy at times.. This one performs well and is simple to use
Tips
1.) Id recommend buying an extra 18650 battery when you buy this.. on super bright mode you will probably need an extra battery.

NTONPOWER Portable Inverter Generator Battery Backup Power Source Station with Rechargeable 170.1Wh/47250mAh Lithium ion Power Bank with 4 Usb Charger,4 DC Port and 1 AC inverter for Outdoor Camping



Short Review: I own several of these inverter generators from various different brands.. I charge them via solar (see tips below about saving the laptop tips for solar charging), and then I use them while camping and other activities outdoors. 170watt hours is a lot of power, especially if used only to charge phones and stuff! This should charge a powerful smartphone around 50 times and probably more!

Use: I needed something in between the size of my yeti 400 lithium and my goal zero Sherpa 100.. this fits the bill perfectly!

Tested with
1.) USB String Lights – Great camping accessory! I used Goal Zero lights. Worked great
2.) Microsoft Surface – Worked great and more than doubled the battery on my Surface
3.) Huawei Mate 9 – Charged 10 times and still had a ton of juice
4.) iPhone 6 – charged 10 time after charging the mate 9.. Still had tons of juice..
5.) 6 can mini fridge – Works Great
6.) Charged the NTONPOWER with my 100watt goal zero solar panel

Notes: This does not provide enough power for a coffee pot or anything like that

Pros
1.) Metal Body, built very well
2.) Easy to read LCD display
3.) Rubber waterproof protector for plugs
4.) Built in light
5.) Can charge multiple items at once

Tips
1.) Be sure to unscrew the outlet and connect it to the battery bank. It ships unplugged!
2.) You can use the laptop adapters to plug a goal Zero panel into this battery bank using the regular input instead of the solar input
3.) This battery pack cannot be carried on a plane.. you need one under 100 watt hours for that

Overall: after one trip and several test I am impressed with this battery pack. So far it’s working well! I have several other trips planned so I’ll continue to update if I have any issues

NEW ECHO!

Tomorrow is an exciting day and I receive my NEW AMAZON ECHO, the new version!!  I will be sure to write a review comparing it and the older versions!!! Today I moved my older, original Echo, to my bathroom.  It is replacing the ECHO Dot I had in there due to it having a much better speaker.. The new Echo will be going to my living room!  Stay tuned for the review!

KOBY Bag Mini 100% silicone, leak resistant toiletry bag, pencil case, essentials bag, dopp kit wash bag for personal items (Charcoal)

Video Review Here

Short Review (Summary): Great bag! When I read that it could be used for a pencil bag, u was afraid it might be too small for what I wanted it for.. I wanted this to be a small tooletries bag that I could carry with be everyday! Something to hold a small travel toothbrush, travel toothpaste, soap, small shampoo, small bottle of cologne, a few dude wipes, and that’s all… I didn’t want a huge bag for this! Guess what? THIS is PERFECT!! The size is amazing and slightly bigger than most pencil pouches! While it would still work great for a pencil pouch, it has all the room I need for my items!

Pros
1.) Quality – Amazing Quality Silicone! Great zipper!

2.) Waterproof – Perfect in case a bottle of cologne opens or breaks.. Great if shampoo leaks out.. no worries about it getting all in my backpack

3.) Wonderful size! Great for an everyday bag or emergency travel bag.. yeah, you probably wouldn’t live a week off this bag but a night or two perfect! Have a smelly lunch? Great for toothbrush & toothpaste

4.) Smooth Zipper

Overall – This fits my needs perfectly and I am happy with my purchase. I highly recommend it to all!

2017 Kia Niro LX

My REAL LIFE FUEL Economy
Base Infotainment System Review

I normally don’t do car reviews (Because I don’t buy a new car often) but did recently get this and wanted to let folks know what I LIKE about my new car!

Short Review (Summary): Great CAR! Excellent GAS Mileage, full of features and you get a lot of car for the price!! I would recommend anyone looking for a hybrid to give this a shot! A lot of features and car without the Hybrid “Premium” price tag.. Size wise, this is between the Soul and Sportage.. It also falls between those two price wise so again a Hybrid without the premium tag

Version: LX
Color: Black
Mileage : Purchased with 4 miles now I have 1201 on it (only on the third tank of gas and it is at “F” at the time of this review)
Average MPG: After 2 tanks, on my third I average 51.2 MPG

Vehicles are very personal.. What I like, you might hate.. What you like, I might hate.. What meets my needs might not meet yours.. With that being said, this review is based on what I LIKE about this car and how it is performing for my needs

Pros
1.) Hybrid – Gas/Hybrid Engine..
2.) Dual Clutch Transmission – No CTV like a lot of hybrids have.. The dual clutch is awesome and in “Sport” mode this has a lot of power for a hybrid
3.) Gas Mileage – I normally average 50MPG by the time I empty a tank.. It starts out looking like you are going to have pretty bad gas mileage, but wait until you empty the tank!! You will then probably have the average up to about 50MPG in the LX version
4.) 500 – 550 miles per tank of gas! Great for road trips!
5.) AndroidAuto and Apple Carplay – Mine doesn’t have GPS built in but no need with AndroidAuto which is standard in these. I can use google maps or waze
6.) SiriusXM
7.) Stock stereo is pretty good.. If you get the technology package you get a GREAT Stereo
8.) Sports Mode – Sports mode is very sporty for a hybrid!!
9.) Great interior – Doesn’t look or feel cheap! Yeah, its not the fanciest interior but its not some cheapo feeling $10,000 car interior
10.) Great Size – I test drove this, a Soul, and a sportage.. The Niro is sized right in between both of those..
11.) Great PRICE – Not only is it sized in between the sportage and the soul, it is also priced between them!! You don’t really pay a premium for the Hybrid Motor.
12.) This little car will travel for about 10+ miles on EV only if you are level and doing between 40 – 60! That’s great for a hybrid
13.) Push button start
14.) Plenty of room for travel and friends!
15.) Very Smooth Ride

Cons
1.) When using battery power the “Range until Empty” doesn’t seem to go up so as far as I can tell the “Range until Empty” is just an estimate based on what the gas motor is using. I am sure something is taking into consideration the electric motor when it shows the range but it doesn’t update.. For example, around 40MPH going down hill it will use the battery motor for several miles and the entire time it will say 432 miles until empty even though that hasn’t changed in about 5 miles and has been on EV mode for about 5 miles..

2.) Does not include spare tire.. I purchased one online for about $160 though. The wheel well for the tire is there but the car only comes with a can of goo and a pump

Overall I love this car and so far I haven’t found anything I can’t stand about it! Yeah, there are a few things Kia can probably change but by no means does that make this a bad car! Its excellent and I would highly recommend anyone looking for a Hybrid to give this a testdrive
