Albird Uoplay Review

ImageuAre you sick of the shakey camera footage you see on your phone during those treasured moments? Does this have you yearning for a smoother and more watchable feel to your videos? The Albird Uoplay hopes to rectify this common annoyance. Vloggers, families and amateur photographers will be happy to see that the Uoplay give you one of the closest experiences to having Hollywood-style Steadicam footage from your smartphone with a simple, high quality peripheral that has a lot more thought put into it as we have seen in the past.

Whilst the price is quite high, at £256.00, this is easily one of the more expensive accessories for the smartphone and certainly not for everyone. For those that have wished to have a smoother experience with the smartphone video, this is a dream come true, providing both good build quality and respectable performance for the money.

AIbird Uoplay 3 Axis Smartphone Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer Unboxing

Purchasing a Steadicam is something not a lot of people would ever have expected to have been able to do, nor would many see it as a sensible purchase, however after playing with the AiBird Uoplay Gimbal I am excited to say this is one of the best peripherals you can pick up for a smartphone.

This isn’t a review, yet. We will be coming to that in the coming weeks. My initial reaction is that I am going to love this accessory and take it everywhere with me, looking for every opportunity. Even between filming the tiny footage and editing it together into the unboxing video I have an extra 30 minutes to pick through for the review, by the time I come to write the full review I’ll probably have a few hours of material.

So what is it? The Aibird UoPlay is a stick for your phone that uses a 3 axis, motorised support to allow for smooth movement as you move. Much like a Steadicam would achieve in the movie industry, or a drone might produce.

Annoyingly the best location to purchase the Aibird Uoplay is on Ebay UK.

The official website for the AiBird Uoplay Gimbal can be found here.

Olixar Ultimate Mains Universal Fast Charger Unboxing and test

vlcsnap-00002A fast charger is an appealing idea, sucking more power out of the wall to get you closer to 100% quicker. It also seems to be the best temporary solution to the battery woes we are all suffering from. Devices have batteries relative to their size and they are unlikely to last a full day if you use them heavily.
Having a faster charger means you can get the battery to a higher percentage as folks can get a little anxious when their battery hits 30% or less in the afternoon.

Olixar have had a go at and produced a rather bulbous yet simple offering. Available from Mobilefun for £19.99 this universal fast charger make some bold claims, up to 60% in 30 minutes and 75% faster than conventional charging methods.

So we put it to the test on a Nexus 6p…

You can purchase the Olixar Ultimate Mains Universal Fast Charger & Travel Adapters here for £19.99.

1Mobilefun have sent us the Nonda Zus. This auto accessory is pretty simple.

The Nonda Zus plugs into your cigarette lighter and acts as a tracking device for an app on your phone to locate your car and allow you to share that location with someone of your choosing.

Also thrown in is the ability to charge two USB connectible devices, at a faster rate that normal. And the Zus has been designed to meet US Military MIL-STD-810G High Temperature Standard. The Zus can handle temperatures as high as 100ºC.

CHJGD Power Banks Unboxing

bulldog_handIt’s power bank city here in the Tech Addicts Headquarters and we have a selection of high end, premium, power banks to share with you. Having looked at the budget end with the EasyAcc 900mAh power bank, CHJGD have sent over their two of their of their most popular power banks alongside a new unit that is due for launch right about now.

The three powerbanks are available from https://chargedpower.com/ alongside some other sexy accessories.

blue

CHJGD Midas Premium Luxury Li-Polymer Power bank – This 8000mAh battery in Sapphire Blue is available for £39.99. This is the big daddy of the collection. A beautifully designed unit with zero frills or gimmicks, the focus is on top quality looks and build. The price is quite high for a powerbank and with so many cheaper units out there this makes it difficult to justify. However, once in hand you can feel the elegance and quality. For my Nexus 6P I would see around 3 full charges off of one fully charger unit.

gold_package_inside_1

CHJGD Fastcharge Premium Luxury – A 4000 mAh, Gold Power Bank is available for £19.99. The modest price tag of this unit explains the slight dip in quality, however this is when compared to the beautiful Midas, whilst only half the price and capacity that doesn’t mean its half the quality, far from it in fact. This unit is still massively more beautiful compared to most of the competition and you would not be ashamed to in any way to pull this out and hook it up to your phone.

bulldog_iphone1

CHJGD Ultracompact 10K mAh Bulldog Credit Card sized Power Bank is available for £29.99. The newest addition to their catalogue, a higher price tag is justified by the quality feel. Certainly the non-slip feel and the impressive artwork boost the appeal and whilst the unit is quite thick you have to remember this is a 10,000mAh. Compared to others of this size, this is particularly small device. The fast charge feature will see around 50% of you battery restored in around 30 minutes, maybe more.

These are three incredibly desirable Power Banks and you will be getting a lovely unit for the money.
