  • Product Review: Kandle Flex by Ozeri

    Posted on April 18, 2015 @ 10:26 pm

    Reading before bed is a part of my routine. No matter how tired or sleepy, I make sure I read even just a few pages to complete my day. Reading with the lights on, of course, is healthy for the eyes. But lately, I noticed that doing so tires my eyes easily. It’s due to the strong glare of a fully lit room. Then I was given the opportunity to review the Kandle Flex by Ozeri.

    Product Description

    * Kandle by Ozeri Flex features a fully adjustable flexible neck that is infinitely customizable for positioning of the lamp head.
    * Powered by 3 surface mounted lifetime LEDs, optimized to distribute light evenly without creating glare or eyestrain.
    * Newly designed power button features soft light and ultra bright settings for the perfect screen illumination.
    * New patent-pending WideLip (TM) design attaches to the Kindle (TM), Sony® Reader and other eBook readers without blocking the screen.
    * Includes 2 CR2032 batteries installed (plus, an extra set batteries) and protective pouch.

    My Thoughts

    The reading light is small and lightweight. I like the size of the clip because it fits perfectly on my Nook without obstructing the screen. It also works for my daughter’s iPad Mini and my son’s Digiland.

    The power button allows you to adjust the light easily from soft to bright or vice versa. Lifetime LEDs were used, so you can be sure they don’t eat up a lot of battery juice. Your purchase includes 4 batteries in all and a black pouch to keep and protect it.

    Reading my favorite ebooks at night is so much fun now with the Kandle Flex Light. The neck is very flexible and I can easily direct it to my preferred position. My eyes feel more relaxed as well because of its soft light.

    Overall, I love this reading light because I can read comfortably even with the lights (of the room) turned off. If you are looking for a nice reading light for your ebook reader, this is a great product to try.

    Where to buy?

    You can purchase the Kandle by Ozeri Flex through the Moderna website and on Amazon. It retails at CDN$ 22.95 and includes FREE shipping. To know more about the Kandle and their other products, please visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/OzeriProducts.

    Product Review: UV Sanitizing Wand by My BioDefense

    Posted on April 17, 2015 @ 11:16 pm

    For a husband who’s a neat freak, sanitizing gels, wet wipes, Lysol and alcohol are always on my grocery list. When I was invited to review the UV Sanitizing Wand by My BioDefense, I thought this would be a good opportunity for me to not just have a clean surface all the time, but save money as well on sanitizing stuff.

    Product Description

    Ready To Kill 99% Of Germs Wherever You Go…w/o Using The Expensive, Harmful “Traditional Methods”? Keeping Germs Away Has Never Been Easier! Sanitize In Seconds! Looking for a way to keep all sorts of surfaces or devices clean at home or on the go? Want to stop getting sick, without using harmful chemicals? Stop wasting time with the old methods…take this with you to sanitize with the most effective technology around, Ultra Violet-C light! Destroy germs and deodorize hard surfaces anywhere, …keeping you and your family safe and healthy! Enjoy living free from sickness caused by bacteria, and germs. If you’ve tried other products but weren’t happy with the results…you NEED to give this a try! It is a truly effective and easy tool to use. Don’t risk your health; get the clean environment you need and want.

    My Thoughts

    The sanitizing wand is battery operated, but it also comes with a USB cord, so you can plug and use it at home to save the batteries. The wand is lightweight and not bulky. I can easily slip it in my purse or pocket and bring it anywhere I go.

    mybiodefense 7

    Sanitizing a surface is a cinch. You simply turn it on and wave it over whatever it is you want to sanitize. I like that it only takes seconds to sterilize a surface. You have to be very careful though, as UV rays can be harmful. When using it, make sure that your skin doesn’t come in contact with the UV light.

    mybiodefense 5

    mybiodefense 6

    Overall, I like the wand. It comes in handy whenever we are out of the house. Instead of using wet wipes for grocery carts, I simply wave the wand on the handle and I can be sure that I’m touching a clean surface. My husband brings it with him all the time. I highly recommend this.

    Where to buy?

    You can purchase the UV Sanitizing Wand through the My BioDefense website and on Amazon. The wand is fairly priced at $35.00 and shipping is free. Another good thing about this product is you can try it out for a week. If you are not satisfied with it, you can return it for a full refund.

    Orange-Cranberry-muffin

    I use fresh cranberries for this Orange Cranberry Muffin recipe, not the sugary dried ones.  They are easily obtainable at the market year round and I don’t worry that the recipe doesn’t use the whole bag.  You can freeze the extras but they also store for a long time in the vegetable draw.  But these muffins are so good you’ll be repeating this recipe and using them all up before they go bad, trust me!

    Why Go for a GoPro?

    Posted on March 17, 2015 @ 1:50 am

    With its high-quality action cameras, GoPro boasts the most versatile cameras in the world. But which model is right for you? Whether you are looking into video camera rental or buying your own camera, there are several GoPro models to choose from.

    Naturally, each model shares many of the same qualities, such as the ability to be mounted on a variety of surfaces, and they are all waterproof up to 40 meters. However, the newer the model, the more video footage it can take, and the more photos it can store. With both photo and video abilities, the GoPro cameras can be worn or mounted, even in vehicles or eyeglasses. They can also be set to automatic or be remotely controlled.

    The GoPro HERO is the most basic model, and the simplest for anyone to use. With the ability to take 1080p30 and 720p60 video, and its waterproof housing, it can be mounted on a surfboard or skateboard for cool angles on a video. The Burst Photo quality can capture 5 frames per second, allows one to capture fast-action sequences. It is also a small and lightweight camera, weighing less than 4 ounces. Anyone who feels like they miss a lot of great photo opportunities can use the camera’s Quick Capture mode, which allows the user to press just one button to start recording a video, and then press and hold the same button to capture photos.

    The GoPro HERO 3 comes with new features, such as 1080p30 video, the ability to capture 5MP single photos, Time Lapse photos or Burst photos at 3 frames per second, and built-in Wi-Fi. With the built-in Wi-Fi feature, the user can not only control the camera remotely, but also preview, play back and share photos with the GoPro app. That may not seem practical, but it can be useful in a variety of situations, such as when the camera is taking great footage from on top of a moving car or someone else’s bike.

    The GoPro HERO 3+ has many of the same features as the HERO 3, but better photo and video quality. With 1080p60 video and 10MP photos up to 10 frames per second, this camera is ideal for people who like the built-in Wi-Fi and multiple photo options but want even better quality photos and videos. It also has high-performance audio, and can film great in dimly lit environments.

    The GoPro Hero 4 is the newest GoPro model, and also the most advanced. With 4K30 and 2.7K50 video and high frame rate 1080p120 video, the HERO 4 takes the best quality photos and videos of any GoPro Camera yet. There are already two different HERO 4 cameras: HERO 4 Black and HERO 4 Silver, and the difference is not simply in color of the camera. The HERO 4 Black has the best quality images yet. With a processor that is twice as powerful, this camera also takes photos twice as fast. 12MP photos at speeds up to 30 fps, and especially 2.7K50 and 1080p120 video, makes this model stand out from the rest. Though all of the GoPro cameras take professional-quality photos, the photos taken by the HERO 4 Black are of the highest resolution and the best quality. The HERO 4 Silver is the first and only GoPro camera to have a built-in touch display for convenience and for framing the perfect shot. And the slow-motion playback on this camera would be a great tool for any videographer. It takes 12MP photos at speeds up to 30 fps, and 1080p60 and 720p120 video. Like its different-colored counterpart, it also has the built-in Wi-Fi that the HERO 3 and HERO 3+ also come with.  With an enhanced sensor, the HERO 4 Silver produces sharper and more lifelike photos than any of the previous models.
