Wireless Phone chargers NEW site NEW products!

One stop shop for all your charging needs!


Hi guys and girls I'm sure you remember me raving about some amazing phone and device chargers I reviewed last year. If you've forgotten then the pik above should remind you.
You can see 2 power banks and 2 QI chargers all from the same company.

Cast in order of appearance is;
 Premium Ultra Thin QI Wireless Phone Charging Pad
and a USB LED bendy light.

I can honestly say I'm STILL using each of these products and so often they've actually saved the day; as both my phone and tablet have the worst battery life.
Plus we often get power-cuts too and we need the combination of power banks and Qi wireless Chargers.

But now Mobile Solar Chargers have an amazing NEW site purely devoted to QI Wireless chargers and Im so excited about this as since using these QI chargers I haven't looked back, its not only Hi-tech its so convenient and easy, no cables just pop your device onto the charging pad and go grab a coffee.

All of us have so many devices which need charging, the bog standard chargers have trouble keeping up with the ever growing technology.
But Im so excited to see that Wireless Phone Chargers have managed to find you guys some state of the art NEW Qi Wireless Charging Technology for your devices.
Here are just a few of their NEW products.



QI wireless charger and Powerbank
This is fantastic new technology and if you like to keep up with the hi-tech Joneses; then go grab yourself one of these, as you not only get a 7000mAh powerbank but its a QI charger as well...!
Yes I said...QI charger too...a wireless powerbank!!!
 It works as a standard premium wireless pad when connected to a PC or mains usb power supply. When disconnected the battery retains a further 2 + portable wireless phone charges or 3+ if using usb charging.
You wont see many of these around at the moment!





 3 coil Qi Charger stand
Another new product; isn't this beautiful; so elegant and sleek.
Remember with Qi technology you can lay your phone in any position and still view videos due to the 3 coils inside which will find your phones receiver card. No phone cables getting in the way. (Receiver cards also sold separately).
Ive seen cheaper versions sold elsewhere which only have 2 coils but these don't often charge properly.


3coil Folding Qi wireless charger
Another gorgeous sleek design plus this stand actually folds back at any angle you wish; even to flat.



So this is just a taster of some of the brand new Qi Wireless Chargers that I haven't seen anywhere else and so affordable too.
 Go check out their new site and be one of the first people to have some new technology to show off to your family and friends.


If you are going to the Gadget Show Live on the 8th and 12th of April then go and check them out personally and see these gorgeous gadgets in action.

 Bye for now

Mums like tech too! Mothers Day gadgety Inspiration for Sunday 15th March


Mums like tech too!

Hi everyone...are you rushing round trying to decide what to get your Mum for Mothers Day on Sunday?
Shame on you leaving it so late....oops...me too ;-)

Of course chocs and flowers are the Mothers day staple but have a quick think; does she use a smart phone, tablet, kindle and/or PC then your Mum loves a bit of tech too.
So here are a variety of gadgety ideas for those Mums who love a bit of tech. These products are all items I have tried and tested and can absolutely vouch for and would love to receive as a gift. Click the links underneath to see my full photo review. There is a mix of UK and US products.

This is a genius fun and whimsical affordable little action camera; this takes wearable tech to its best as you simply pin it on your clothes and carry on; perfect to capture fun family gatherings like parties, barbeques without having to worry about carrying a camera and missing the fun; now you simply press play and forget you wearing it.

Most of us have Kindles nowadays and I feel most Mums love a bit of peace and quiet to read a good book on their Kindle. Then treat your Mum to a fab case that looks like a stunning book cover. Klevercase's offer an amazing selection of covers for everyone's taste.

  The Single Pen Quiver for notebooks and journals. (US and UK)
I have to say every Mum Im sure, would love one of these in beautifully handmade leather.
How many times have you been without a pen or stylus when you need it. With the Quiver it slips easily onto the notebook, journal or tablet to not only keep your pen in place; but they will give your notebook an elegant old world charm feel. 
The Gerp (US) 
Next is this unique looking gadget The Gerp which suckers firmly onto your gadgets. Its sitting on my desk now what a fun gadget to use as well as being so damn useful.

  This selection comes from a 1 stop shop for all your charging needs
I have 3 different types of charges to take you from home to car to traveling.
First charging at home with the Premium Ultra Thin QI Wireless Phone Charging Pad Just pop your phone ontop while grabbing a coffee surfing or on the phone; I haven't stopped using mine since it arrived; its amazing and looks so elegant and sleek too.
Next charging in your car with the  QI Wireless Car Charger and Cradle which charges wirelessly while your in the car to work or traveling etc. 
Finally from this brilliant company is a rugged waterproof charger to take anywhere The holiday essential the Aqua Trek USB Waterproof 7800mAh Charger perfect if you know Mum is off traveling, camping, boating this year. I have been using all three of these gadgets above as each has its own busy place in my life and found them invaluable; I simply cannot do without these as I always need more charge on one of my many gadgets.

Does your Mum love photography like I do; then Photojojo offer these 3 amazing lenses which magnetize onto your phone. Its fun and affordable and you can really grab some amazing piks you wouldn't normally be able to. Checkout what I managed to capture last Summer.

A stylus is something so many of us use but does your Mum love art; does she sketch or paint using a tablet. Then the Sensu is perfect with a 2 in 1 normal stylus...and a...paint brush with conductive hairs so you have the real feel of painting with a brush. Plus just look how elegant and beautiful it is.


Does your Mum juggle with laptop, tablet and phone; then look no further surprise your Mum with one or 2 of these Sidecars. I bet she wont have seen these before so you get extra kudos for being the best pressie giver ever!

 KitSound and Kitvision (UK)
I cant go without mentioning one of my favorite gadgety companies Kitvision and Kitsound. As I said on my Valentines post their sound and vision products are affordable fun and brilliant quality....who wouldn't want to receive any of the above. Everyone enjoys music so checkout the KitSound Hive Bluetooth speaker or the mini fun buddy bee speaker which makes you smile too.
KitSound Clash On-Ear Headphones with In-Line Mic look stunning and has great sound. The Kitsound Cadet rugged Bluetooth portable speaker is perfect for camping or hiking or simply in the garden. But my favorite 2 products has to be the KitVision Splash Action cam...oh my goodness what an incredible camera as it comes with all the mounts and a waterproof case you could ever want for. Then there is the stunning Kitsound Swing radio alarmclock this is one of the most most beautiful retro radios Ive seen and matching sound quality to boot.


For something a bit more personal checkout this beautiful paperweight from personalise.co.uk where they have a huge variety of products to make it a tad more special to say you love your Mum.

 I hope this has given you all some ideas but if you still need some Mothers day gadgety inspiration then checkout my full gadget review page for products in the UK and US. HERE

So all you Mums out there have a great day. 
I just hope my furred and feathered babies remember its Mothers Day on Sunday...sigh...!


Ebola K - A Terrorism Thriller Book 1 Bobby Adair Book Review



Blurb
In 1989 the Ebola virus mutated to into an airborne strain that infected humans for the first time on American soil in Reston, Virginia. Through belated containment efforts and luck, nobody died.
Now, in the remote East African village of Kapchorwa, the Ebola virus has mutated into another airborne strain without losing any of its deadly potency.

In this thriller, terrorists stumble across this new, fully lethal strain and while the world fearfully watches the growing epidemic in West Africa as Sierra Leone goes into country-wide lock down, only a few Americans are aware of Ebola K and the danger it poses—to be the deadliest pandemic in the history of mankind.

Can they do anything to protect themselves from this killer disease? Can they stop the terrorists?



Opinion
Wow just finished the last page of this book and did I say Wow. I've been reading my favorite genre of zombie books like forever...which I'm still obsessed with by the way...but it's a refreshing change to read an alternative type of horror genre. After reading Slow Burn 1 and 2 I loved Bobby's comical but detailed gory way of writing.
This new series however is a huge change but directed in another direction. We have all heard about the reality of the Ebola outbreak last year which hit Africa and really touched home to us all, when both the US and the UK had Ebola patients suffering from it making this outbreak very real and quite frightening. A huge reality check that it could actually happen to any of us if our governments don't put protection in place right now....rant over!

Situated in Denver, Stepmum and Dad Heidi and Paul haven't heard from their son Austin whose been out teaching street kids in a small town in Africa. What they don't know he has been stranded in Kapchorwa as a small outbreak of Ebola breaks out and has stopped to help his friends...which isn't going to end well is it? Austin is your ordinary boy next door who is accidentally in the wrong place at the wrong time as he witnesses horrific suffering and also has to make a huge life choice as he watches his friends fall sick from from this deadly new strain of airborne Ebola.
Bobby has created a complete opposite character from the kind Austin in Najid Almasi whose has vengeful plans for the world using the latest Ebola outbreak, he literally lights a fuse using his loyal army of Jihadists and simply sits back and waits...how easy is that!

Bobby has written this simple plot and we are swept along in this seriously realistic fast paced read, wondering just whats going to happen next. What leader doesn't want to get his hands on Germ Warfare and what better germ than the deadliest of all.
Bobby...bows down....you are officially a...genius!

This could be today's actual headlines and the reality makes things so much more frightening. Love this book and just rushed off to Amazon and downloaded Ebola K 2 and it's 05.10am and I've just got to keep reading lol....sooo sleepy but NEED to read on....!

Remember this first book is free and I love Bobby's honesty with " The first is free and if you like it buy the next" which Ive done and no regrets.

Author Bio


Bobby was conceived in Japan, born in Michigan, is a card carrying Cherokee, is descended from a Polish slave, an African slave, countless European immigrants, and displaced American Indians. He grew up as a military brat, so lived in ten different states and lost count of the schools he attended before finally graduating high school in Texas. After attending the University of Texas, he lived most of his adult life in and around Austin before moving to Colorado in 2012.
Bobby has starved as a guitar player in a penniless metal band, spent too much money as the owner of several successful restaurants, spent years working for "the man" in large companies as a computer programmer, and made and lost more money than he'd like to admit playing in the stock market.

These days, he spends his time walking his dogs, mountain biking, road biking, hiking in the mountains, still writing code for "the man", and chasing his dream of becoming a successful writer.




All my thanks goes to Bobby for kindly sending me his book to read. All my views and opinions are my own.

Rebelite Xtreme Fashion Stylus pen


How many of you use stylus's on your tablets and smartphones reducing finger marks and smudgy screens...a huge pet hate of mine.

I have been on a mission for the last few years to find a stylus that has a more luxurious feel to it, so I feel a bit special using it for every day things...or is that just me.

So when Rebelite a company in NJ contacted me and offered to send a few items for you guys to see; I couldn't resist showing you this beautiful looking stylus pen and a few other items that I know you will love too.



Rebelite are one of the largest distributors of cellular phone/tablet accessories in the US. Their state of the art product line is rigorously tested for the best possible performance.


Here are the 3 Rebelite reviews coming very soon.

Occult Assassin: Damnation Code (Book 1) By William Massa Book Review

By William Massa

Blurb
THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ACTION-HORROR SERIES.

Apocalyptic Cults. Cursed Relics. Supernatural Rituals. Paranormal Terrorists.
Only one man stands against the agents of darkness...

After a decade spent fighting the enemy abroad and keeping his country safe, Delta Force Operator Mark Talon is ready to settle down with the love of his life. But Talon’s world crumbles when his fiancĂ©e becomes the victim of a murderous cult. The military man now has a new foe in his cross-hairs, and this promises to be a very different war…

The person responsible for his beloved’s death is a Silicon Valley tycoon allied with the forces of darkness. Fusing cutting-edge computer technology with occult power, the enemy here cannot be stopped by bullets alone. If Talon is to be victorious in his mission of vengeance, he will need to master a new method of warfare — the arcane arts!

He must become… the Occult Assassin.


Im a huge fan of Mr Massa's books each one so different to the next; a sign of a brilliant writer that has so many great ideas. So I couldn't wait to read Occult Assassin the start of a fab new series when it appeared in my inbox.
I have to say Mr Massa's books are unique to anything I have read; I love the powerful combination of science fiction, horror and murder mystery; especially with this new Occult Assassin series.
I'm loving the main character and hero Delta Force operator Mark Talon who is immediately likable and very realistic. We see him ready to settle down and planning a future with his beautiful fiance, but that was never going to happen was it....as she is sadistically murdered for what secrets she had uncovered as a journalist. I'm so disappointed she was killed off as I really liked her...sigh!
Of course Talon goes on a revenge mission to uncover why and who and we are all right behind him in yet another brilliant, unputdownable fast paced read. Mr Massa has cleverly combined technology and the occult; so the only way to fight these murderous cult members is to become an occult assassin himself. Its James Bond meets futuristic dark arts technology.
I hate spoilers so you really NEED to read the book to find out more. These edge of seat action scenes are horrific and gruesomely realistic as William's powerful text puts you right there next to Talon; where you can feel his grief and deep loss and you know he's not going to stop till he's delivered his own justified revenge. Its so different to anything else you may have read just go buy it...honestly.
Yet another excellent, well written, brilliant idea for a book and I cant wait to read book 2 Occult Assassin Apocalypse Soldier. I would highly recommend too; reading the prequel to this new series Occult Assassin Ice God for a brief introduction to Mark Talon. 
But Damnation Code is a complete read in itself and I cant wait to see what Talon is upto in book 2 Apocalypse soldier.

More from Talon in Book 2

Devoured The Hunger Book 1 by Jason Brant Book Review


Blurb
Day One: A series of terrorist attacks spread a cloud of noxious gas over highly populated areas.
Day Two: Higher brain function erodes in those exposed to the gas. Their bodies begin to distort, faces distending, skin sallowing, teeth elongating.
Day Three: The infected disappear into the shadows, fleeing the harsh daylight which has begun to sear their flesh.
Day Four: The world is DEVOURED.

Life isn’t kind to Lance York. A full-time job has eluded him for years, his wife loathes the sight of him, his bank accounts are empty, and his wealthy father-in-law revels in his failures.
After he lunges in front of a car to save a sick and disoriented woman, Lance awakens in a quarantined hospital. A devastating plague is spreading worldwide, driving those infected with it insane. Their bodies begin to mutate into horrors that have haunted mankind’s nightmares for centuries.

The world descends into chaos as the infected flee to the shadows, emerging at night to devour the remnants of civilization.
With the help of an unlikely ally, Lance must navigate through the collapsing city of Pittsburgh, striving to escape the madness of the apocalypse that unfolds around them.


 This was the first book Ive read from Jason Brant and it wont be my last. I had downloaded this for free quite awhile ago but only just got round to reading it. What a fantastic fast paced read, I was hooked and completely sucked into this fast paced storyline from the very first page...why on earth...hadn't I read this earlier...doh!
If you love your zombie dystonian horror and gore you so need to read this next as its quite different to your normal zombie-esk reads. These monsters are a horrific combination of zombies and vampires similar to those of the Blade trilogy with larger bodies and more grotesque features making these creatures almost impossible to fight and so much more terrifying.

What's great about this book is that most of us can relate to or know someone like Lance who is in a really bad place, with a nagging wife, not enough money and is feeling quite down.  Jason has made us as the reader really feel for this guy as he's so realistic and completely believable. I was almost shouting at the screen when I discovered more about his scheming wife...no more spoilers here...grrr.

Its been brilliantly written and I was completely sucked into this storyline and I absolutely loved watching Lance develop naturally throughout the book from this downtrodden guy to a more confident ass-kicking hero which is so convincing. Part of the reason for this new found confidence was Cassie who saved his butt from not just the night and day-walkers but the Militia (its not just monsters to be scared of out there).
She is a likable, cocky young woman who is confident and strong not scared to  kick ass when needed. Girl power at its best...yesss! However her constant use of the word "dumbass" aimed at Lance was actually getting on my nerves as funny, quirky and likable as she is; even though it ends up as a term of endearment.
We watch Lances confidence grow as the two of them fight together to get to the national safety point and of course this isn't going to go easy or is it even going to be safe?

I found myself speeding through this book unable to put it down; another 6am finish on this lol! 
Go grab this you've no excuse as its FREE as I type here for kindles.

Loved it and I cant wait to read book 2.


Author Bio
