Buddy Fruits Fruitbreak Blended Superfruit with Blueberry and Blackcurrant, 4.2 Ounce (Pack of 14)

5.0 out of 5 stars Really delicious and convenient. All natural, September 17, 2014
This is a review of Buddy Fruits Fruitbreak, Blueberry and Blackcurrant.

Wow this is good. The ingredients are wholesome and simple: apple, banana, blueberry, blackcurrant, apple juice concentrate. That's it. No preservatives, no artificial colorings, no artificial flavors, dairy free, no genetically engineered ingredients. 90 calories and provides 1 serving of fruit.

It's in a grab-and-go squeezable, recyclable pouch. This doesn't need to be refrigerated until it's been opened in which case it should then be refrigerated and consumed within 24 hours.

This is great when I'm in a rush. Grab this and enjoy it while in the car. It's also really great to bring along for hikes.

It's a little pricey but I like that it is all natural and the convenience factor is something to consider.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lightning plug may not fit through some iPhone cases, but otherwise a fine cable, September 16, 2014
Length:: 2:02 Mins

The is a review of the Syncwire 1meter lightning cable, I was provided a free sample for evaluation.

Not all cables are equal in quality. And not all "lightning" cables sold by third-parties are MFI certified meaning that they may not work with your iPod, iPhone or iPad... or if they do work now, they may not work after an IOS update. MFI certification is very important when buying any third-party lighting cable. Good to know then that this Syncwire cable is MFI certified.

The cable worked well for me for both charging and syncing my iPhone5s. It has good strain relief where the cable enters the plugs.

The only reason I witheld a star is because the Lightning end is fatter then the Apple lightning cable end. This means that the cable may not fit through the lighning port hole in some cases since this is somewhat fatter than the Apple cable. Other than that this seems to be a good quality cable for the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars A clever case/battery combo that easily lets you carry just the case if you wish, September 16, 2014
Length:: 8:01 Mins

This is a review of the Lepow PIE, a 3000mAh battery/case for your iPhone 5/5s. I was provided with a free sample for evaluation.

I'm no stranger to iPhone45s case/battery combos. There are many on the market, But this is the first one I've seen that has the battery component as a seperate piece of the total package. It's cool because once your iPhone has been charged, you don't have to continue to have the battery with you, You can easily detach it from the case since they are held together magnetically.

The magnet is the reason this is so cool, but also the reason that it may not be for everyone. You see, the magent is strong enough to hold the battery to the case, but not like glue. It can be dislodges quite easily particularly if you drop your phone.

A short Micro USB to Lightning cable is a little weird looking when your phone is charging but you've got to get power to thoe phone somehow and to have a detachable battery, it's going to be a cable. So I can deal with that. When it's time to charge the batterypack, just remove the short cable and use the longer USB to Micro USB cable to charge the batterypack. It charges at 1A so is going to fully charge in just a few hours... about twice as long as it would take to charge just your iPhone if it were connected to the AC USB wall charger directly.

The case material is that slick silicone type covering. I don't find it particularly grippy. If anything it seems a little slippery to me, I think I'd prefer a subtle texture on the case.

But putting aside my minor quibbles, I reallly like the performance and useability of this battery/case combo. It charges my iPhone5s 1% per minute which means in 10 minutes, my iPhone is charged 10%. That's as good and fast as when I connect directly to an wall charger.

The cool felt bag that's included can store the battery piece and cable when its not attached to the phone.. Honestly, I just leave the battery on the phone most of the time, It's not that heavy and gives me a good grip on the phone since it adds a bit of thickness to it.

I like this. It's more convenient to have the ability to easily remove the battery when it's not needed and still have a protective, nice quality case on my iPhone. It's easier and better looing than carting around a seperate, more bulky powerbank. I also like that there is no on/off button to worry about, Charging of the phone starts immediately as soon as the cable is plugged in. And it's easy to check the battery level in the battery pack, just give it a little shake and the LED"s illuminate to indicate the power level. It may seem odd that the LED"s are covered when the phone is magnetically attached to the battery, but it is actually preferable to me that the LED"s are "hidden" and aren't going on all the time, everytime I move my phone in such a way that would cause them to go on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reliable weed and grass killer, September 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length:: 1:02 Mins

This is a review of Roundup Extended Control Weed and Grass Killer.

I've been using Roundup concentrate in one iteration or another for years. It's always been a reliable way to kill weeds and grass. I use it for killing grass around the trees in my yard, after which I put down mulch. I also use Roundup in my ornamental garden to control weeds during the summer months.

It works well and the concentrate is a more economical way to purchse Roundup compared to the premixed stuff.

I always use a tank sprayer to apply the Roundup.

I don't have any reason to switch to something else. It's been extremely effective for me. The only thing this particular product doesn't work very well on is woody shrubs and brush. But on grass and weeds, this stuff rules.

5.0 out of 5 stars The coolest LED light. Control up to 50 of these lights using the app, September 15, 2014
Length:: 3:01 Mins

This is a review of the Flux, a bluetooth LED light. I was provided a free sample for evaluation.

I've never experienced such a cool LED light as this FLUX light. What sets it apart from the many other LED bulbs on the market is that this one is controllable by bluetooth. Just download the app "Magic LED LIght v2" and you have the power to control not just a single LED bulb, but up to 50! You can created up to 10 groups of up to 5 bulbs each and control them all at the same time with the app. Imagine having 5 of these bulbs designated as a group, in your entertainment room. Using the app, you can have them all dim at the same time, or change brightness, or have them on a timer to go on and off at a certain time.

The light consumes 7.5W so is very energy efficient. It provides up to 550 lumens of brightness.

The light has a standard E27 screw in base.

Once you screw in the light and turn the socket on the first time, you go to the app and pair it to the app. You would do this very each additional light you add in your home. Then using the app you can control each light individually, or in groups of up to 5 at a time.

I love all the different modes the light has. 20 pre-programmed modes in all, ranging from color fading to strobe effects. You can control the fade speed and strobe speed by adjusting the slider.

Milliions of color combinations are available.

I also like the music mode where you can have the light respond to the beat of the music. Very very cool.

This is a big hit and everyone that sees it loves it. I plan to eventually get a few more bulbs to I can control multiple bulbs at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Energy efficient and useful LED light bulb that has light sensor and motion activation, September 15, 2014
Length:: 2:27 Mins

This is a review of the Daffodil LEB305S LED light bulb. I was provided a free sample for evaluation.

This is an energy efficient bulb that has a light and motion sensor built-in. The standard E27 screw base has a large finned aluminum heat sink at the bottom and a plastic bulb/dome with sensor at the top.

The light works well in dark areas where you would like automatic operation when motion is detected, otherwise the light remains in off/standby mode. This makes it well-suited for use in an attic, dark hallway, closet or as a porch light. Once it becomes dark, the light turns on when motion is detected within a 3 to 7 meter distance from the light. After roughly 30 seconds of no motion, the light turns off.

This type of bulb would not be suitable for a standard desk lamp with shade since the motion sensor would be obscured by the lamp shade which would render it ineffective. It could be used in a downward facing ceiling fixture.

This provides the same amount of light that a 40W incandescent bulb would provide but uses only 5W to do so. It's very energy efficient. The light produced by the LED is in the 6000-6500K range which makes the light more white/bluish rather than the "warmer" light normally associated with an incandescent bulb.

This light works well but make sure that 40W equivalent brightness will be bright enough for your intended purpose or you might be disappointed with the brightness level this 5W bulb produces.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your boring old powerbank, September 15, 2014
Length:: 2:41 Mins

This is a review of the Ozaki O!tool D26 powerbank. I was provided a free sample for evaluation.

The O!tool D26 batterypack is a whimsical, decently performing batterypack that will sure get some attention from whoever sees it. It's a cute robot design containing a 2600mAh Li-ion batterypack. Accessories include a carry case and fabric covered USB to MicroUSB charging cable. The top rear corner of the case has hole for use with a wrist strap, if desired (no wrist strap is included however.)

The colorful robot design even has a movable "mouth" which actually covers the 1A USB output port. Below the USB port is a powerbutton that turns the powerbank on. LED lights indicate the state of charge of the powerbank.

It performs well and will give an iPhone5s 1 full charge with a little left to spare.

It's not the most economical powerbank available, but it has great design and packaging along with good performance. This is the perfect antidote to boring rectangular powerbanks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally, I have one batterypack that has both MicroUSB and Lightning plugs built-in, September 14, 2014
Length:: 3:08 Mins

This is a review of the Skiva A5000 Powervault. I was provided a free sample for review.

This is a compact sized, mid-capacity powerbank that has two permanently attached cables; MicroUSB & Lightning. The cables are short flat cables about 3" long. When not in use they nest in a channel on each side of the powerbank and the plugs securely stow away as well.

So many times I've grabbed my phone and gotten into my car only to find the battery is nearly dead. Although my car has a USB car charger, I don't always have the lightning cable with me. This solves that problem because there is no cable to forget with this powerbank. It's permanently attached.

But it also has a permanently attached MicroUSB cable too and both can be charging a device at the same time.

The only thing I would like to see that this doesn't have is a regular USB output port so that I could attach a Mini USB cable if need be.

Otherwise this is a great performing powerbank.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good looking multi-purpose pen, September 13, 2014
Length:: 2:06 Mins

When is a pen not just a pen? When it'a s Minzos 4 in 1 Turbo Pen. I was provided a sample for evaluation.

I fully realize the benefits of using a stylus on my iPad... primarily the reduction of fingerprints on my screen. But it's usually not convenient for me to always have a stylus with me. On the other hand, I've just about always got a pen with me. Now with this 4-in-1 pen, I"ve got way more than just a pen. I've now got that stylus, plus a laser pointer, LED flashlight, and pen.

It's an attractive, normal sized pen with all that other functionality too,

My only issue, and it's a little nit picky, is that the cap for the pen cannot be stored on the other end where the laser pointer and flashlight is. So whenever I use the pen, which is mostly what I use this for, I have to be sure not to lose the cap. If I could simply slide it over the other end, I'd have no worries.

Would love to see this improved to enable me to put the cap on the other end when I'm using the pen. Otherwise a great multi-purpose pen.

4.0 out of 5 stars A potentially life-saving tool, September 12, 2014
Length:: 2:08 Mins

This is a review of the StatGear T3 Tactical Auto Rescue Tool. A free sample was provided to me for evaluation.

Developed by a paramedic, this tool could potentially save your life or help you save the life of someone else.

This tool has 4 useful features:
- 3.25" 440C Stainless Steel, half serrated blade
- 440C Stainless Steel seatbelt cutter
- LED light with momentary on/off button
- Spring loaded steel tip window punch

The window punch is one of the most valuable aspects of this tool. When a car has entered water and begins to sink, water pressure can prevent the door from being opened. This tool enables you to break the window glass thus providing egress from the vehicle.

The serrated blade and seatbelt cutter tools can help release someone trapped in the vehicle as well.

The tool has a belt clip and also comes with a nylon sheath with nylon loop on the back.

Throw this tool in your glovebox and in case of emergency it just might make the difference between life and death.
