Aukey Portable Wireless Speaker Review – Model SK-M12

IMG_20170214_233310-e1487799030824Has this top amazon seller sent me a speaker to replace my hi-fi system? I usually have music blasting in the background if I am home alone doing housework, my wife listens to music during her home exercise routines and whenever we are having parties it always helps to have some music in the background to keep the kids entertained.  I suppose with it being 2017 it is time to move into the world of wireless and put this speaker to the test.

Out of the box, the Aukey Portable wireless speaker looks and feels like a premium device with the smooth black rubber casing and the silver grills. This brick shaped speaker weighs 650.6 grammes and is 20.9 x 8.3 x 7.3cm (L x W x H). The speaker uses Bluetooth 4.1 and Aukey state you can get up to 30 hours playtime connected via cable or 12 hours wireless play with the  2600mAh lithium battery.

On top of the speaker you have the control panel, volume buttons, call button (pressed twice dials the last number dialled on your phone) the power button and Mode button (presumably pop, rock, vocal)

On the left-hand side there is the USB charging port, Aux-in, and reset button. These are covered with a red silicone cover

On the right-hand side, there is a detachable handle which can be used to mount the speaker on a hook.

At the bottom, there is a 1/4″-20 standard tripod screw mount

The speaker paired via Bluetooth to my phone effortlessly.  Browsing through my music collection I had a mixture of dance, country, rock and pop are being played and I must say I was impressed.  The sound output was crystal clear, with fantastic bass and treble with no noise distortion at maximum volume. Aukey state ‘Dual 5W drivers produce deep lows, textured mids, and clear highs to enjoy at home or outdoor’

When testing the speaker outdoors the 33ft wireless range opened a world of opportunity for summer BBQ’s.  The Aukey Wireless speaker has not only impressed me, my wife and kids but other members of our family have been impressed by the sound quality from ‘the brick’ speaker. On a single charge, I have got two weeks worth of listening without having to worry about charging the battery, listening to the speaker for about an hour a day I have had no issues or problems. It currently has found a home at the kitchen sink with the splash proof grills it has made washing the dishes a more enjoyable task!

I would definitely recommend this Aukey speaker for £29.99 on Amazon this is truly a smart purchase and will hopefully be able to explore more of the Aukey range soon.

Package Contents: Aukey SK-M12 Bluetooth 4.1 Speaker, Micro-USB Cable, 3.5mm Audio Cable, User Manual, 24 Month Warranty

archos_101saphir-large_02Following the successful introduction of the ARCHOS 50 Saphir smartphone, ARCHOS unveils the ARCHOS 101 Saphir tablet, a durable and reliable 2-in-1 tablet with a keyboard. Especially meant for hikers, riders and outdoor workers, it combines a 10.1-inch IPS HD screen, a quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and 2 cameras, a built-in GPS and USB Type-C / micro HDMI slots, all in a rugged casing. Demonstrated next week at MWC 2017, the ARCHOS 101 Saphir will be available just before summer at £130.00.

From drops to water splashes, electronic devices damaged at home have cost families billions. At the same time, rambling has never been so hype and hikers or riders want their tablet in their backpack. Even outdoor workers are looking for robust cutting edge technology to increase their productivity on the field.

ARCHOS, who was the first to introduce a Google Android tablet in 2009 and who additionally benefits from the long track record expertise of its Logic Instrument subsidiary, leader in embedded and rugged mobile systems for hostile environments, therefore designed its new tablet in a rugged casing, which can survive drops (up to 1 meter), dust and water splashes, as per the IP54 standard’ specifications.

The ARCHOS 101 Saphir sports a brilliant 10.1-inch IPS HD screen, delivering a 1280×800 pixels resolution, with an optimum clarity and wide viewing angles, to look at pictures, watch videos, use favourite apps and social networks, either from a sofa or in the bright light on top of the Himalayas or on worksites.

It is powered by a 64-bit Mediatek quad-core processor at 1.3 GHz, along with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, thus capable of running multiple apps and videos at the same time.

The ARCHOS 101 Saphir embeds two cameras: 2MP at the front and 5MP at the back, to catch and share life’ best moments.

It is equipped with a built-in GPS, making it easier to get the most out of the web and preferred apps.

The ARCHOS 101 Saphir packs a 6000 mAH battery, to get through the entire day.

It runs Google Android’s latest release, Nougat, with a bunch of new features: split-screen mode, quick reply to notifications, and revamped settings and toggle menus, making the tablet even friendlier to use.

And as a Google certified device, the ARCHOS 101 Saphir gives access to the Google Play Store with its 1.4 million apps, games and books.

It offers all the essentials and even more in terms of multimedia: an audio jack port, a keyboard, 2 speakers, as well as USB Type C and micro HDMI slots – to enjoy any content on the go.

The ARCHOS 101 Saphir will be exhibited on ARCHOS’s booth at MWC 2017 (Hall 6, Booth #B60). Exact specifications, prices, and availability might vary by country. They will be specified when the tablet is launched, in June 2017.

Venturer, one of the largest manufacturers of tablets worldwide, with world class manufacturing facilities, today announces the launch of the PrimePro 12TS Windows 10 2-in-1 Notebook.

Piccadilly phone case has ‘Trusted Protection’

Piccadilly-iPhone-6-6s-Proective-Case-Gear4-D3O-Case-2The people of the UK have spoken! When looking for a new case to protect their all-important smartphone, consumers are looking for maximum protection, high-quality materials without making the case bulky and a great colour (according to an NPD survey).

Maybe this is why then, the Piccadilly phone case, featuring D3O technology from GEAR4, the number one trusted impact protection case brand, has proven to be one of the best-selling cases over the last year in the UK as it ticks all of these boxes.

Featuring the same D3O® impact absorbing technology that is trusted worldwide in U.S military combat uniforms, American football helmets and protective gear worn by pro athletes (including Usain Bolt), the stylish Piccadilly case for iPhone and Samsung devices boasts unrivalled protection without adding bulk or unsightly padding.

In fact, the level of protection offered by the Piccadilly case was independently tested at Cranfield Impact Centre (the UK’s leading independent test centre for F1 and defence) and it topped the charts. When impacted three times on its side from 1.7 metres (ear height), it was proven that GEAR4 D3O cases transfer less force than competitors by 30 percent. Not only this, on average the GEAR4 D3O range was also 53 percent lighter than other competitive cases.

GEAR4 is the first case brand to use injectable metallic D3O® to perfectly colour match the iPhone in Gold, Rose Gold, Silver and Black delivering more impact protection per cubic millimetre than other leading materials. Piccadilly is scratch-protected with UV coating and offers easy access to all ports.

So what exactly is D3O?

D3O materials in their raw state flow freely when moved slowly, but on shock, lock together to absorb and disperse energy, before instantly returning to their flexible state. This reaction is counter intuitive. The greater the force of the impact, the more the molecules lock together and the greater the protection meaning your device stays safe when dropped.

The GEAR4 Piccadilly case is available for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus for £29.99 from Carphone Warehouse and www.gear4.com
