Charge Your Electronics Using The Cigarette Lighter


Multi-Port car charger from Stalion.If your car has a cigarette lighter then you can use this universal multi-port car charger while on the go.

It has 5 USB ports, so you can charge multiple items at one time. It will work for any of your electronics that charge by USB.

The Stalion car charger recognizes different devices and uses the fastest speed for that particular device.

Picture of the Stalion Multi-Port(5) Car Charger in my husbands truck.

My husband has it in his truck. It has been used to charge his phone mostly. It does work on my Kindle. We could charge the kindle, his phone, and my phone at one time, and still have two ports for anyone else who is tagging along to use. So if every member of your family has something that needs charging, you won’t have to fight over the charger.

My husband really likes this charger. He has forgotten to charge his phone, and forgotten to charge the portable charger that he keeps in the truck. So he was out in the boonies with no way to charge his phone. Now that he has this charger that will not be a problem again. So long as his truck is working anyway.

This is a really nice looking charger too. We got the black one but you can get a white one if you want.

Electrical Outlets Too Far Away?


Ubercords 6' Extension Cords.These 6 Foot Extension Cords from Ubercords extend your reach to those far away outlets.

These are really good extension cords too. They are heavy duty cords, and are made to last a long time.

They are CSA approved with a lifetime warranty, and are rated for 125 Volt/13 Amp Applications.

I put one of them on my husbands wireless phone stand. The phone is by his recliner on an end table, and the big dog likes to hide back there when it storms. She has knocked the phone off the table several times, because the cord was up off the floor (it barely reached the outlet at all).

6' Ubercdord on my Husbands Phone.With the Ubercord on it the cord is not in the way anymore. I hope that means the phone won’t get knocked off again.

The other cord I put on one of the incubators in my library.

Ubercord on my Incubator.The plugin is slightly behind the bookshelf, and underneath the table the incubators are sitting on. Which meant that to plug something in, or unplug it, I had to get down on the floor and crawl under the table. I won’t have to do that anymore, at least not until I’m ready to unplug it permanently (for this year) anyway.

For those of you wondering why I need to unplug them, it is because we had several sets of eggs, with different hatching times, and sometimes have to alternate incubators (they have to be cleaned).  It helps to have the one in use plugged into an extension cord.

These 6′ cords are just the right length for most uses in the house. Long enough to reach, and not long enough to be in the way.

I like them.

Sanitize Your Trip With A Sanitizing UV Light Wand


UV Sanitizing Wand from MyBioDefense.If you travel a lot, and stay in places that may not be completely sanitary, or just worry about how sanitary your normal environment is, then you should check out this travel wand from MyBioDefense.

This Foldable UV Light Wand from MyBIODefense is a small travel light that produces UV-C light, which is known to kill germs.

It is a perfect size to carry along with you on trips. You can use it to sanitize the bathtub in hotels if you are not absolutely sure if the tub is clean.

It will work on any solid surface, like faucets, toilets, seat back trays, TV remotes, and phones.

It is also good for things that you can’t really clean well with other sanitizers, like your keyboard.

You have to hold it over the surface for a few seconds. The longer the surface is exposed to the light the more sanitized it will be, but they recommend several seconds for most things.  For some things it would take a lot longer. To kill  some molds you would have to expose it to the light for almost a minutes, maybe even longer depending on the type of mold.

You do need to be careful not to expose your eyes or skin to the light, but the wand does have a built in safety feature that turns the light off if you turn the wand sideways.

The wand comes with a cord so you can plug it into a USB slot and use it while it is plugged in, or you can put batteries in it and use it anywhere.

I like it.

Showcase Your Instagram Feed With #Cube


#Cube™The #Cube™ is a great way to show off your Instagram feed.

It connects to your Instagram account through your wireless and automatically updates. So you will see any new pictures your friends post immediately (depends on your internet speed of course).

The #Cube™ looks like a nice picture frame so you can set on a coffee table or end table (or anywhere you want it) so everyone can see it.

That also allows you to move it around, and look at your Instagram while you are doing housework.

It has a heart button on the top you can push to “like” a picture.  You can also look at the back of the picture and follow/unfollow the user as well.

#Cube™ showing my feed.

I really like this. I carried it into the kitchen with me and had it on the counter while cleaning in there. It is neat to be able to hit the “like” button on top.

You can set the #Cube™ to show your feed, your “likes”, or a particular user. You can have it show only one picture at a time or a grid.

It has a touch display, an 8 inch screen, it is portable and wireless, and it is updateable, and rechargeable.

The best thing about it is that it looks good anywhere. I can set it on my mantle or coffee table, or the kitchen counter and it looks nice.  And since it comes three different styles you can get one that will look good in your house too. You can get the Classic, Black, or White #Cube™.

You can buy them directly or from Amazon.com.

Need To Keep Track Of Your Blood Pressure?


Blood Pressure Monitor from Health Gurus.This blood pressure monitor can save up to 60 readings(each) for two users!

That means you don’t have to keep a notebook to write them down in, unless you really want to.

I really like that because I often don’t remember to write it down, or if I do write it down I forget where I put the note.

This blood pressure monitor from Health Gurus does the work for you.

It is easy to use. You just put the cuff on and hit the start button and it comes on and checks your blood pressure. It doesn’t take long.

The number come up nice and big, with a back-light, that makes them easy to read.

It also has a heart rate reading.

It comes with batteries, and a really nice storage case.

My Health Gurus Blood Pressure Monitor

It also has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and a 2 year warranty.

I really like the monitor they sent me. I’m supposed to keep track of my blood pressure on a regular basis, and be able to tell the nurse practitioner whether it was normal or not, as well as the highest and lowest readings.

This monitor remembers the last 60 readings so that will make it lots easier to see the highs and lows, or if there is a general trend upwards, or if I’m lucky downwards.

If you need a blood pressure monitor this one would be a great choice.

Magicbox Ultra-Portable Bluetooth Speaker


Magicbox Ultra-Portable wireless bluetooth speaker.This is a wonderful little speaker from DKnight. It puts out a big sound, which is amazing coming from such a little box.

My husband was surprised that the sound was so loud, and the volume wasn’t even turned all the way up.

We connected it to his phone so he can use it to listen to his music.

The Magicbox Ultra-Portable Bluetooth Speaker is small enough to fit in a jacket pocket so he can carry it with him when he is out doing chores, or horseback riding, or wherever.

DKnight Magicbox Ultra-Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

I’m not absolutely sure it will work everywhere he goes, because some areas don’t get good cell reception, but even if it only works in some places it will be nice.

It has a microphone and you can use it to answer calls.  It also has a 3.5mm Aux in jack, which means it can play all audio devices.

It didn’t take it very long to get completely charged up either. I just plugged in the usb port and left it for a while.  The battery when fully charged provides up to 10 hours of play time.

The one I got is black but it also comes in a pretty blue or red.

Portable Power Bank Charger From Linkon

Linkon Portable Charger.This portable charger from Linkon is pretty nice. It is small enough to fit in my purse easy. You can actually stick it in your pocket if you need to.

It comes in several different colors too so you could get one to match your car color if you wanted to. Or get one of each color to match your outfits (that seems a bit extreme to me but some folks like to have everything match).

This charger works on a Kindle and on a LG phone. So far those are the only things I have used it on. It does come with several different attachments that fit other electronics.

Linkon Portable Charger and attachments.If you want to charge this using a regular plug in you do need to get an adapter separately (if you don’t already have one). I already had an adapter for my kindle so I used that. You can charge this using a usb port instead, and that might actually be easier.

This charger holds more than enough power to completely recharge a kindle.

Some of the features(According to Linkon):

Automatic Charging – connect the cable and charging begins, it’s that simple!
Power Check – Press the power button to check the power level of the battery charger. Display will automatically turn off after 30 seconds.
Automatic Shut Down – The battery charger will automatically shut down after 30 seconds when not connected so you will never have to worry about unexpectedly turning it on.
Aluminum Alloy Casing – Strong and durable shell to ensure the battery charger will accompany you for many years.
Will not Overheat – When charging or recharging the LINKON Power Stick, it will NOT overheat unlike many other external battery chargers.
Portable for Absolute Convenience – Measuring only 3.5inch long, the LINKON Power Stick will fit comfortably in any pocket or bag.

This is a very sturdy and nice looking charger, and it is very easy to use. Just plug it in to your phone and it starts working.

Party Hearty With Xoundstar Portable Bluetooth Speakers


Xoundstar Portable Speaker.I wish we had these Xoundstar® Portable Speakers back when I was in high school, and college.

We used to go out to the river and party on the weekends and these speakers would have been great to use out there.

I’m pretty sure kids (and even grown ups) still do that, and they could use these speakers out there.

Of course you can use them for pool parties, or take on camping trips, or anywhere you might need (want) speakers.

They pair with Bluetooth and NFC equipped devices.

I have used them wired to my computer, and paired with my phone through Bluetooth.

They produce a wonderful, clear, sound, that goes plenty loud enough even for a hearing impaired person (with hearing aids anyway).

I have the speaker on my computer desk, the sound comes through loud and clear. The desk vibrates nicely too. I like that.

Xoundstar Speakers wired to my computer.

I did have a problem getting it to pair with the computer at first. I think that was my fault because I had not ever used the Bluetooth with anything.  I got it right the second time I tried.

Then I decided to try it wired to the computer. I liked it so much I decided to keep it on there, except when we want to use it with the phones somewhere.

It would be great to take on fishing trips, or out to the farm to listen to while working with the horses, or out in the yard while doing yard work.

And of course for parties, if we ever have one again.

These speakers can play for up to 10 hours when fully charged.  That means they should last for a whole weekend out in the boonies if you don’t leave them on constantly.

Cable Quality Does Make A Difference

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

HDMI Cables from Solid Cordz.

We have a flat screen TV that is capable of playing high definition video and audio but we still had the old connectors on it.

Mainly because I wasn’t really sure that having HDMI cables on there would make a big difference and of course spending money for something you are not sure is worth it seems like a waste. I would much rather buy books you know.

Picture of the two HDMI cables from Solid Cordz.

Then of course the folks at Solid Cordz sent me some of their Premium Series Gold Plated High Speed HDMI® Cables with Ethernet.

Picture of the gold plated connectores on the Solid Cordz HDMI cables.

I am here to tell you these HDMI cables make a huge difference. The picture on the TV (watching movies) is sooo much better. My husband says the sound is better but I can’t tell (the captions show up better though).

We did have a bit of a problem with figuring out how to use them. We got them on the TV and the video player with no trouble but them we couldn’t figure out how to actually watch the movie.

We thought the cables must be on there wrong at first but then my hubby checked the remote and changed the setting over to the HDMI and everything worked just great. We sure felt silly for a while.

These cables are really nice.

Some of the features of the cables are :

• HDMI® Ethernet Channel – The HDMI 1.4 specification adds a data channel to the HDMI® connection, enabling high-speed, bi-directional communication. Connected devices that include this feature can send and receive data via 100 Mb/sec Ethernet, making them instantly ready for any IP-based application.

• Audio Return Channel – The new specification adds an audio channel that will reduce the number of cables required to deliver audio “upstream” from a TV to an A/V receiver for processing and playback. In cases where a TV features an internal content source, such as a built-in tuner or DVD player, the Audio Return Channel allows the TV to send audio data upstream to the A/V receiver via the HDMI cable, eliminating the need for an extra cable.

• 3D Support – The 1.4 version of the specification defines common 3D formats and resolutions for HDMI-enabled devices, enabling 3D gaming and other 3D video applications.

• 4K Resolution Support – The new specification enables HDMI devices to support extremely high HD resolutions, effectively four times the resolution of a 1080p device. Support for 4K allows the HDMI interface to transmit digital content at the same resolution as the state-of-the-art Digital Cinema systems used in many movie theaters.

I am so glad we got these. My husband is a movie buff and he loves to watch movies. He also likes to watch football and  he says the picture and sound are much better.

These cables are also for gaming systems and I’m pretty sure any game would be improved by the use of them. Especially online multi-player games where lag can make a huge difference.

If you don’t have HDMI cables or if you have the older ones you should really think about getting some of these newest ones. They could improve your experience a lot.

Solid Cordz can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
