VTEK [UPGRADED] Lightning Charging Extension Cable (3 feet) for iPhone 6, 6S, Get the Original Charging Cable Extra Length

I have an android phone, but wanted the VTEK Lightning Charging Extension Cable for my girlfriend.  She has an iPhone 6. and I knew that this would be useful to her.

It is really well made, and great that it will allow you to charge your phone, without having to stretch the cable, or worse still, lay your phone where it could get damaged.

I am adding some important information from the Amazon web page:

  • ‘End size: Length 2.5*1.8*1 cm; Male End Size: 1*0.6 cm;
  • Extension cable for iPhone 5,5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPads Mini& iPods with 8 pin lightning connector. Please Use Verified or Original Charging Cable. Not verified cable does not support.
  • It works with synchronizing with the iTunes, but does not transfer data ,music, video from your cellphone to your car, also does not work with some dock stations and iPad air please kindly notice this.
  • It does not work with any VGA or HDMI cables, 30 pin to 8 pin adapters or any converters,and iPad Air, please do not use. Please kindly notice this.’

If you have the iPhone, and it is an older one listed above, then this could be of help to you.

I did receive this one for free, and know that my friend will be using it.



Draft OISLE Portable Cordless Battery Bank Portable Charger Type-C Port Mini Power Bank 4500mAh External Battery Pack Ultra-Compact High-Speed LED Indicador light for Andriod of SAMSUNG, HUAWEI-Black

I get away for a long weekend most months, and thought that the OISLE Portable Cordless Battery Bank would be a nice product to take with me.

It comes with a quick start guide, which I was pleased to get, as I am not at all techie.  My phone has a thick case on it, as one slide off my purse one time, and it was a $149 accident.  So I removed the case, and my phone was slim enough to fit on the cordless, battery bank.

For the next part I am using the seller information from the Amazon webpage:

  • ‘★Small, Ultra Thin & Super Light – About half the size of the phone and only 0.28” thick, 2 ounces. You hardly see or feel it when on your phone. Great for travel and when you’re out and about
  • ★Compatibility- IPhone X, 8/8+, X, 7/7+, 6/6+/6s, 5/5s. OISLE specializes in developing useful power banks.
  • ★No Cable Nedded to Charge iPhone- Just plug the power bank into the phone’s charge port. The power bank can be charged with your lightning cable; power bank and phone can be charged simultaneously.
  • ★Smart Charger With LED battery Level Indicator- Press to start normal charge, press and hold for 3 seonds for QUICKER charge. 4 LED lights tell you the available charge, each light means 25%
  • ★Quality & Safety Assurance- CE, FCC & RoHS certified. 100% customer satisfaction is our goal. 40 days money back, One Year Warranty for quality issues.’

I have had much bigger ones in the past, and am amazed as to how light, and compact it is.  You could just slip it into a pocket, or purse, and keep it with you.

I did receive this unique product for free, and have offered you information on it.  Here is the Amazon link to the item:



Transferring everything to my new HP Notebook Laptop 15.6 HD Vibrant Display Quad Core AMD E2-7110 APU 1.8GHz 4GB RAM 500GB HDD DVD Windows 10

My Windows 10 laptop is 2 years old, and my husband has a Windows 8.  His one doesn’t hold the battery life, so he was going to get a new laptop.  However, as I use mine for hours a day, we decided I would get the HP Notebook Laptop 15.6 HD Vibrant Display.

I really don’t like getting new ones, as I have so much to transfer from one to another.  I started a week ago, and a day later it wouldn’t work.  I found the HP number, phoned them, and was number 50 in line.  I finally spoke to a guy, and he said I could return it, or do a factory reset.  As I had information in the laptop there was no way I was sending it back, so after 3 and a half hours, I had to start afresh.

I have so many sites, and try to have different passwords for each one.  On the other laptop they automatically logged me in, so couldn’t remember all my passwords.  We are told not to write them down, so I have had a week of adding new ones.  That’s why I haven’t been on that much.

We have used it to stream on BritBox, and Hulu, and the picture is great, as well as the sound.  We also Skyped Len’s family, and the picture our side was much better than usual.  I haven’t been able to Skype my family, but that could be an Internet problem over in England.

I like that I have Cortana, she understands my English accent.  Everything else is the same as my 2 year old one, so am fairly happy with it.

Being 70, it takes me longer to pick up new technical stuff, but I will get some of it, and that is good enough for me.

This laptop was on sale, down from $399 to $269, which I thought was very reasonable.  If you want technical specs, etc., just click on the Amazon link below.


Archeer UHF Wireless Microphone, Cardioid Handheld Microphone System,Singing Machine Dynamic Mic with Portable Receiver 1/8” Output and 1/4” Adapter for Church, Recording, Home Karaoke

I love to sing in church, and am always singing in my home.  My husband bought me an inexpensive Karaoke machine years ago, and the microphone was very basic.  So just looking at the quality of the Archeer UHF Wireless Microphone, I knew that it would be far superior to what I already have.

To be honest I am not technical at all, and can only judge a product on it’s design, quality, and what is provided in the box.  For me I can check all these off after using the microphone.  The sound quality is great, and has 48 frequencies to ensure that it is crystal clear.

It comes with the handheld wireless microphone, a receiver, 3.5 adapter, MIC wind cap, and a user manual.  I had plenty of batteries to use with the microphone,and receiver, as they are not included.  I read the instructions, and got it set up.  My husband says that all I need now is a stage.

Information from the Amazon webpage:

‘UHF 610MHz–675MHz frequency,

48 selectable UHF channels with stable reception.

1/4” receive and extra 1/8” adapter,connect more devices.

Dynamic mic capsule,cardioid polar pattern.

Durable metal construction,with a sturdy grip and hold,the microphone can be easily held.

50 meters range wireless transmit distance.

Perfect for church service, karaoke parties, weddings and other events.

How to use

1. Load two AA batteries into the microphone and two AAA batteries to the reveiver.

2. Plug the receiver into the MIC input of devices with 1/4” audio jack,or put the 1/8” adapter on the receiver, then switch on devices and microphone to use.


1. Please keep microphones and loudspeakers as far away from each other as possible to avoid microphone cause whistled.

2. Batteries are not included (microphone karaoke are powered by two AA batteries and receiver is powered by two AAA batteries).’

I really love it, but have a friend in a band, so I am going to be a kind friend, and pass it on to him, as I was fortunate enough to get it for free.

Landnics Magnifier,10X Handheld Magnifier Antique Sandalwood Handle Loupe Magnifying Glass Lens with zinc alloy frame for Seniors, Maps, Reading, Inspection, insects and Hobby

My husband has worn contact lenses for around 25 years now.  We found out recently that he has cataracts, so has to go 4 weeks without this contacts.  I thought how nice the Landnics Magnifier,10X Handheld Magnifying Glass Lens would be for him.

First off, the antique design is beautiful.  It is really easy to hold, as the thumb rests on the 4 rings.  I held it with my laptop in front of me, typing away with one hand, and couldn’t believe how big the 10X made my keyboard letters look.

My husband is wearing 3.25 glasses for long distance, and instead of putting reading glasses over them, yes that’s what would happen for this period of time, he can now use the Landnics Magnifying Glass for reading.

Once he is finished with it, it will be going on my desk,



in our office.

From the Amazon webpage:

  • ‘Genuine Crystal Glass Lens – This 10x magnifier brings crystal clear image and distortion free magnification, always provides you sharp and clean image.
  • Lens Magnifications: 10X; Lens Diameter: 72mm; Handle Length:about 138mm
  • Lightweight and Comfortable¨The ergonomic design is good for long time use. Perfect for seniors and hobbyist.

  • Elegant and Graceful, This magnifier comes with a sandalwood handle and zinc alloy frame, which feels like a coherent entity. The antique design sending out slight retro taste always make you be pleasure with it.’

If you have an elderly relative/friend that has problems with their eyesight, or someone that is into intricate hobbies, then why not check this out.  I did receive mine for free, and have been totally honest in my opinion of this product.

Free items that have arrived from Amazon sellers in the past month.

I am astonished at the amount of products that have been delivered to me, which I haven’t ordered.  I did agree with a couple of sellers, that if they have returns that are in perfect condition, they could be sent to me.  Amazon will not let them sell the items again, and charge storage fees.  However, the

Syma X5SW Explorers2 2.4G 4CH 6-Axis Gyro RC Headless Quadcopter with 0.3MP HD Wifi Camera (FPV) White 

arrived today, and I can’t remember a company that had these.  I am certainly not complaining.  I am sure my husband will try it out, and if not we belong to charity organizations, as well as friends that are grandparents.

As I got wiped from Amazon I can only order, and leave seller feedback, if there is an order number.  They will not let me do anything else on Amazon.  No record of these coming to me, so thank you sellers, and I am happy to distribute them for you.

Tsumbay Digital Voice Recorder 2 in 1 Mini 8GB Flash Drive Audio Recording Device Sound Recorders Memory Stick for Lectures, Meetings, Interviews, Conversation, Classes, Negotiation

I am just amazed at what a tiny Digital Voice Recorder/Mini 8GB Flash Drive/Memory Stick the Tsumbay is.

When I took it out of it’s plastic cover, and before reading the User’s Manual, I thought it hasn’t come with a USB cable. Well it doesn’t need one, silly me. As soon as I pushed the silver colored clip to the left, the USB port is built in. It just pushes out of the end.

I charged it out, and that can be done via your laptop, or a charging station, which I used. I am going to use the information on the Amazon website, as it explains it better than I can:

  • ‘2 in 1 Function. This little gadget can be used as a digital voice recorder, and a USB flash drive memory stick features 8GB for storing files including photos, voice recordings, and many other documents.
  • Charging & Recording Simultaneously. Easily get charged with the USB port and Micro USB port built-in which support usage on both computers or Android phones. No need to worry about power shortage since you can also record while it is being charged.
  • Wide Usage Occasions. This digital voice recorder is a great recording device for interviews, classes, meetings, lectures, business negotiations, seminars and any other important occasions.
  • Compact and Convenient. Lightweight and tiny, easy to be carried to anywhere you need. You can attach it to your key rings, belt buckles, and any other wristbands with the rope hanging hole on the right corner.
  • voice recorder for pc computer with usb MP3 WMA WAV windows 2000 xp vista 7 Easy Operation. Start recording, pause recording or stop recording very easily by long pressing or short pressing the power button. And you can easily see the power status by checking the Indicator Light.’

I am not technical at all, but wanted this to record meetings I attend. I really love how easy it is to use, and how small it is. ‘Playback is in the state of shutdown. You connect to a PC or Android phone to playback. The information to do this is in the User’s Manual.

I am delighted with it, and am planning on using it at our next meeting.

AOPETIO Cell Phone Finger Ring Stand Holder,[1 Set] AOPETIO Rotation Metal Round Ring Hand Grip Kickstand, For Magnetic Car Phone Vent Mount

I was interested in the AOPETIO Cell Phone Finger Ring StandHolder, because the one I use in my office for angling, or standing my phone up, is rubber, and I really don’t trust it.

I do have a magnetic car vent mount, which looks the same as this one, so will most likely give that to a friend. They work well, and stay in place, allowing you to view your GPS on your phone.

So my review is mostly about the Finger Ring Stand.  As you can see from my photos, it goes on the back of your phone, and you are all set.  I used an old phone, as I needed my latest one to take the photos.

A little about the Finger Ring from the Amazon website:

  • ‘【Material】:This cellphone ring grip stand holder construction from soft silicone elastic and the hand hold ring with zinc alloy bearing to keep rotating sturdy, the adhesive of the holder kickstand rings is surprisingly strong.
  • 【Feature】: The phone ring stand is an efficient way of preventing your phone from slipping off your hands, the ring holder as a temporary stand when you place your phone or any other electric equipment on a table or any flat surface.’

I am really pleased with it, and to get 2 products, is even better.  I did receive mine at a discounted price, and am really delighted with it.



MECO Digital Alarm Clock, Gravity Sensor Multifunctional Alarm Clock Operated with Large Screen, Date, Time, Calendar, Temperature Display, Alarm, Countdown for Children, Teenagers, Blue

The MECO Digital Alarm Clock has so much in a cute modern looking clock.  Our old one, which you can see in the photos, is ready for the garbage can.  The LED partly goes out at times, which means we have no idea of the time.

The new one is a gravity sensor clock, which allows you to turn it on it’s side, bottom, and other side, that allows you to see the different functions.  So you have the clock, temperature, alarm, and countdown.  I think this is really neat, and so happy to be using it.

The clock goes darker during the day, and brighter when it gets dark.  The numbers are really big, which is great for us seniors to read.

I handed it to my husband, and he had it set up in minutes.  It’s great to have the date up in the corner too.  Often I wonder what it is, and if my phone isn’t close by, have to get up and check.

This clock is great for children too, and comes in blue, green, and white.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

  • ‘Novelty rotating alarm clock, gravity sensor alarm clock, date and time, alarm, timer and temperature in 4 direction by clockwise or counter-clockwise turn the alarm clocks.
  • With built-in light sensor to turn on/off the backlight automatically, which automatically adjusts the screen light in dark conditions, maintaining just enough display brightness to read the time without being too bright to sleep.
  • The adjustable alarm tone allow you set volume louder or lower. Without snooze function, train your kids wake up on time.
  • Large screen(3.2*2.9 inch ) display for easy viewing. The clock has been designed with absolute simplicity in mind and you will have no problem whatsoever operating it.’

So if you are looking for a new clock, I highly recommend this one at just $12.95.

I did receive this clock at a discounted price, but would happily pay the retail price for it.

iLepo 8- Port USB Charger LCD Display Charging Stations for Multiple Devices Desktop Wall Charger For Laptops, Tablets, and Phones

I do have 2 or 3 USB Chargers, but have to say that I am impressed with the iLepo 8 – Port USB Charger with LCD Display Charging.

This one has 8 ports, and is compact.  I have a travel one that is tiny, but only has 4.  I also have a big one with 4, and another one that has 6.

As we both use our smartphones all day long, both of our laptops, and my husband’s tablet, it great to have one charger for all of them.  Also I have desktop lamps, lanterns, voice recorders, smartwatches, protein shake blender,

and so many more small electronics that use the USB chargers.

This smart charger has so many great features, and rather than put a couple in, this is from the Amazon webpage:

LCD DISPLAY—LCD digital display, which will automatically recognize the current and voltage of different ports which your electronics device plug in. [Notes: When devices charging current less than 0.1A, the charging status not displayed, but still be in charged]

  • HIGH CAPACITY—Support a variety of USB charging protocols,each charging protocol automatic switching Divider 1 / Divider 2 / Divider 3 charging protocol (Apple dedicated),D+/D- set 1.2V mode (Samsung dedicated),DCP CTIS and YD/T 1591-2009 BC1.2 charging protocol

This gives me a worry free charging station, that is capable of taking care of my USB appliances/phones etc.  I am very happy with it.  The iLepo charger was provided free of charge to me.  It is not influence me in the review I have provided of it.
