3.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced for being plastic, August 28, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We already possess an emergency solar/crank radio from the American Red Cross. The only difference is that the American Red Cross brand does not have a phone charger, the flashlight is not as bright and it only cost us $24.99. However I really expected this model to be constructed better because of the asking price. It is made of a cheap plastic that will probably break or crack after one fall. Even the crank handle is made out of plastic.

In regards to its functions, it does have a long antenna that allowed us to get several radio frequencies. The weather band for our county came in loud and clear (that is if you can understand the robotic voice that comes across). The flashlight is better than our other crank radio but it is still not intended for optimal lighting if needed. It will help you see what is right in front of you. To charge your cellphone, you need to hold the power button several seconds to "phone" icon is displayed on the LED screen. It comes with a few different tips but sadly no Apple device connectors so you must your your own cables.

In regards to charging the unit, solar power will never fully charge the radio (it even states it in the instructions). I was somewhat surprised to read that you can leave the radio plugged into a USB power source all the time and it will not overheat the battery.

Overall the radio is okay but I believe the asking price is way too high for the poor quality of materials. If you want to spend $49.95 (current price) on an emergency radio, there are much better options.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improvement Over The F1 Model, August 28, 2014
I wrote a review of the F1 Smart Monitor Stand and gave it a 4 star rating. This was mainly because of the choice of accent color, lime green.

The F3 is basically the same device with the addition of USB 3.0. There are 4 USB 3.0 ports on the front along with a microphone and headphone jack. The package includes a USB 3.0 cable and a microphone and headphone cable. The cables connect under the stand and have clips that hold them in place. You had two heights to choose from - 3.0 inches (the metal legs go straight into the base) and 4 1/8 inches (with the metal legs clipped into the plastic clips). There are rubber pads that can be put on the legs to protect your surfaces from scratching. Satechi recommends not using the stand without the metal leg in place.

It can hold up to 22 pounds (so a 27 inch iMac is a no go), but I think you should not try much over 20 pounds. A 21.5 inch iMac or a laptop will be just fine. I have a older 24 inch iMac on it know with no problems. Having space underneath is a great way to save space on your desk by storing your keyboard or mouse when not in use.

The addition of a grey accent color (instead of lime) and USB 3.0 this stand will get a star back!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Keyboard For Your iMac!, August 28, 2014
The new iMacs ship with a wireless keyboard. It’s a great keyboard, however, if you want one with a numeric keyboard this one from Satechi is a great alternative.

Set up is a snap. The enclosed instructions will get your keyboard paired with your device in under a minute. Two AAA batteries are included. You can switch between five connected devices and easily switch between them using the function key and the numbers 1-5. If you want a wired keyboard, you can use the enclosed USB cable.

Tactile feel on the keys is excellent. The top row includes media control buttons, There are rubber feet that keep the keyboard in place and two clips that snap out and slightly elevate the keyboard.

The white keys and the aluminum background have a modern feel and will go great with your Apple devices. I have many Satechi devices and always find the quality and value a great selling point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need in one set, August 27, 2014
Length:: 1:17 Mins

The Culina 18-piece BBQ set has pretty much everything you would need for grilling. From basting to cleanup, this set has it all.

Everything comes in a heavy-duty aluminum carry case that has elastic loops and velcro enclosures to keep the items securely in place so you can take them with you anywhere. If you rather hang the utensils from the grill, they also have large eyelets. The grilling utensils have long handles to help keep your hands away from the heat and flames.

Made of lightweight stainless steel and 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Makes an excellent gift idea.

Comes with the following:

1 Basting brush (sops up lots and stays on the brush)
1 Two prong fork
4 Steak knives
8 Corn pins
1 Cleaning brush
1 Pair of tongs (notched edges)
1 Large spatula (tapered edge, serrated side and bottle opener)
1 Aluminum Case

LifeCHARGE InAir Battery Case with Wireless Charging Technology for Apple iPhone 5/5s - Retail Packaging - Black
LifeCHARGE InAir Battery Case with Wireless Charging Technology for Apple iPhone 5/5s - Retail Packaging - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Wireless Conductive Charging and Backup Battery in One! (iPhone 5/5S option), August 25, 2014
Length:: 1:55 Mins

I have been using Qi wireless charging for some time now, but to have a case that can serves as a backup battery capable of charging your battery when you need it and that uses a new safer wireless charging technique - now that is what I call AWESOME!

The LifeCharge InAir Battery Case does not use Qi standard wireless charging. Instead it uses conductive charging which is stable and highly efficient up to 99%. It has a fast charging current, up to 2A output and no radiation - uses green protection. With Qi charging pads and case you have to correctly line up (locate) the coils in order for charging to commence. With the LifeCharge InAir the case uses the metal pins on the back to draw in power. Besides using the specially made InAir pad for charging, you can also you a micro USB cable (one included) to charge the case.

Now let me talk about the amazing backup battery that is also built into the case. How many times have you been out and about and you don't have access to a power supply to charge your phone? With the LifeCharge InAir case you have backup power at your finger tips There is a button located in the back of the case that you hold down for several seconds until the four LED lights illuminate. This will begin to charge your phone's battery and will automatically stop when the battery is full. The lights will turn off after a few seconds second, they do not stay on the entire time the phone is charging. The back of the case will get a bit warm. My phone was down to 53% and it took approximately an 1 hour and 45 minutes to get to to a 100% full battery status. The case used 50% of the charge power to revive my phone back to that state (2 LED lights).

When charging via wireless charging pad or micro USB, the phone will be charged first and then the backup battery will be charged second.

The case is a slim considering everything it can do. The back is a "pleather" material and the sides has a nice silicone rubber bumper that will protect the phone from bumps and drops. The access ports and buttons are all well aligned and function correctly. It does comes with an audio plug extender since you will not be able to fit your headphone jack without one. Phone can be easily removed and reinstalled without any issues and it will still fit snugly in place.

De'Longhi EDG605RDolce Gusto Circolo Flow Stop Coffee Machine

5.0 out of 5 stars Brews an excellent cup of coffee, August 24, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Nescafe Dolce Gusto is a very sleek and modern coffee machine. The quality of the coffees is like that of a freshly brewed coffeehouse drink! This isn't just a regular one cup coffee maker...its so much more than that! It came with 2 Cappuccinos and Cafe Americanos and one each of Espresso, Cocochino, Latte Machiatto, and Lungo. All of these turned out to be an excellent cup of coffee!

It has a 15 bar pump, 45 oz. water tank, a capsule bin, stainless steel drip tray and automatic variable extraction pressure for optimum results. The drip tray is adjustable depending on the size of your coffee cup.

When you go to use the machine for the first time, its important to follow the instructions carefully! Once the setup is done you're ready to brew. Some of the beverages require two separate capsules so make sure to set the selection wheel according to what it shows on the capsule. The unit comes with a guide to show you how to mix the flavors to make certain beverages which helped me out the first round. At first I thought it came with 4 cappuccinos but then realized I needed one of the white bottomed capsules (froth) and then the dark bottomed capsule (flavoring) to make the beverage. Just raise the locking handle, slide out the capsule holder, put in your desired flavor, slide in the capsule holder, push down the locking handle, use the selection wheel for desired strength and push either the red button for hot brew or blue for cold brew.

Its easy to use if you read the manual and follow the instructions instead of using Quick Start guide (a little confusing). Happy brewing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Backup Juice!, August 22, 2014
I love my Canon EOS Rebel T3i. The only thing I don’t like is the fact that it has a battery pack and not batteries that can be easily replaced when you run out of juice. Even though the OEM battery has proven very reliable and last lasting at 1,120 mAh, I always feel better having a backup in case I go crazy and take a tons of pics.

This pack from ClearMax was just what I was looking for. It comes with 2 batteries (1,120mAh) and a portable charger. It also comes with a car adapter!

It held a great charge and in my tests allowed me to take just as many pics as the OEM battery.

The price is great plus it also comes with a 2 year warranty. The peace of mind when on vacation is worth the purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps Your Grates Clean!, August 22, 2014
Most grillers pride themselves on having a clean grill. I am one of those grillers. I used to heat the grill up and then scrap off remnants of the past grilling sessions. With these grill mats, this is mostly a thing of the past.

The mats are designed to resist heats up to 500°F. Using these mats also helped to prevent flare ups. I grill some kabobs (didn't lose anything through the grates!) and chicken. They both came out juicy and flavorful. Clean up (after cooling) was a snap. Just clean with soap and water and you are ready for next time.

The enclosed baking sheet also works well. I baked some crab cakes and they did not stick like they normally do. It did slightly stain the mat, but I doubt that will effect it’s future use.

It comes with a lifetime warranty. What’s not to like?

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yeah...well take this!, August 22, 2014
The Velocity Boxing Stress Reliever Desktop Punching Ball will stick to whatever smooth, flat surface you attach it to.

Out of the box you attach the ball to the spring and attach the other end to the sucker. The enclosed pump will inflate the bag. A nice touch is that the pin is inserted into a slot on the top of the pump to keep it from getting lost. After inflation I was a little skeptical as to how well it would stick. Rest easy, it really sucks. I hit the bag as hard as I could and it did not budge!

If you’re looking for a cute novelty item, this is it. The box says it is a great gift idea for ages 5 to really really old!

em michelle phan The Great Cover Up Ultimate Concealer, Medium Neutral/Cool
Price: $17.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Works great as an under eye coverup but that's about it, August 22, 2014
Length:: 1:01 Mins

As you can see in the video, the em michelle phan The Great Cover Up Ultimate Concealer worked great for covering up my dark circles under my eye compared to the side, but looked caked on where I used it for covering up blemishes and dark spots.

I have mocha colored skin and rule of thumb is that you are suppose to choose at least one or two shades lighter when purchasing a concealer. This way you can neutralize dark areas without having unwanted attention because it is way too light. I am using the Medium Neutral Cool.

Concealers are for spot correctors and not to be used as an all over foundation substitute. It should always be worn underneath foundation and powers. You can apply it with your finger or use a small brush.

The em michelle brand feels very velvety smooth and dries up to a satin powdery finish. However, I found that it only looked smooth under my eyes, while areas where there are wrinkles and fine lines it looked caked on and very noticeable. My dark circles did appear quick a bit lighter and my skin even looked smoother under my eyes. However areas that I did spot covering for blemishes and acne dark spots did not look as smooth. It looked obvious I used makeup to hide blemishes on my face.

This makes a great under eye dark circle corrector, but if you are looking for a concealer to treat all problems areas I do not recommend this product.
