Today Xiaomi officially launched the Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2 and the  Mi Electric Scooter 1S in the UK.

Elka Model-T Pro Electric Scooter Review – Shows potential against Xiaomi Mi M365

[Update] My review sample arrived with a damaged throttle. The scooter worked ok for a while, just a loose and temperamental throttle. I gave Elka the benefit of the doubt and assumed it was damaged in shipping and they would fix it. Sadly Elka decided not to respond to my emails and never fixed it. The throttle and power button eventually broke completely. [Update 2] I have been in discussion with Elka about the issues they have faced. They have taken my criticism on board and say that review sample arriving mid-lockdown my support case slipped through the cracks...

The Best Tech Upgrades for Your Car – Make your old car smart

I drive a 10-year-old bottom of the range, Vauxhall Corsa, there is a CD player, but that is about as far as technology goes with it, there is no Bluetooth, USB, navigation or any method of connecting my phone to the car. In the 10-years since that car was made we have seen Tesla go from selling just 2,450 Roadsters worldwide between February 2008 and December 2012 to selling 448,634 Model 3 cars by the end of 2019. They are also at the forefront of car technology with advanced self-driving systems and the ability to play doom on its...

Nextbase 522GW Dash Camera Review – Is it worth £40 extra vs the Nextbase 512GW dashcam? Score 90%

Nextbase 522GW Dash Camera Review – Is it worth £40 extra vs the Nextbase 512GW dashcam?

I reviewed the Nextbase 512GW dashcam 2 years ago, and to date, it has remained one of the dash cams I have used. Nextbase has followed this up with the 522GW now features Alexa, because what device doesn’t nowadays? Nextbase has launched this at the same RRP as the older model, £149.99, but that model has now dropped to £109.95 on Amazon. So do the increased smarts of the 522GW justify an extra £40? Compare this model with other front and rear dash cameras to protect you and your car at an affordable price. Sale Nextbase 522GW - Series...

Nexar Dash Cam Review – An app reliant dash cam with free cloud storage

Nexar is a new company to me, but they have a significant presence in the US with a particular focus on NYC (though they are an Israeli company). Nexar is built around its AI app, and the hardware they sell is reliant on this, which is quite a bit different than your standard dashcam which is not dependent upon an app, and cheaper models lack an app altogether. In fact, it is possible to use Nexar without any other hardware, if you can mount the phone with the camera having a clear view of the road it is possible...

How to Turn Your Vehicle into a Smart Car with a Vehicle Tracking System

Vehicle technology is improving at an unprecedented rate. Only a few decades ago, sensors that detect and prevent collisions and smart systems that report malfunctions and call for emergency aid would be considered a pipe dream. In today’s world, not only are all these technologies ready and available to some capacity, there are even more sophisticated innovations that emerge every day. Some of these technologies, like self-driving cars, are still in the development phase and it will be a few years until they are fully functional – but you don’t have to wait around for decades to own a...

Choetech PowerDual 5 10W dual device & 7.5w Car phone mount wireless charger reviews

Wireless charging has been out for years now with the Google Nexus 4 having it all the way back in 2012. However, it is only recently it has started to go mainstream, with Apple, Samsung, Huawei and others all supporting it on flagship devices such as the P30 Pro, and Galaxy S10. Ironically, with the incredible battery life of the P30 Pro, it is rare I need to top up my battery following a nights charge, so wireless charging feels less important. However, it is still useful, and I have found myself using it more frequently. I have an...

Anker Roav Viva Pro Review – Amazon Alexa & FM transmitter make this the best gadget for older cars Score 85%

Anker Roav Viva Pro Review – Amazon Alexa & FM transmitter make this the best gadget for older cars

I have previously reviewed the Anker Roav Viva and liked it, it was great for voice control of my music (Amazon Music) and worked well for navigation too. There was one major caveat though, my car is a 10-year-old Corsa, I have a CD player and no other forms of input. That meant I needed a radio transmitter paired to the Roav Viva for it to work. This eventually led me to stop using the device, as I needed three USB ports, one for the radio transmitter, dash cam, and wireless charging mount. I did buy a lighter adaptor...

Z-Edge T4 Dual Lens Dash Cam Review Score 88%

Z-Edge T4 Dual Lens Dash Cam Review

I am a big advocate of dash cams and I think everyone should own one for their own good. It is a small investment that can help clear up insurance claims and prevent insurance fraud. There is a dash cam for every budget, and I have reviewed options from Aukey which are just £50 through to the Nextbase 512GW which is currently around £140. You can, of course, spend much more than this with some BlackVue models costing more than £400. I have only reviewed front facing cameras so far, which are great, but ideally, you want to cover...

Anker Roav Viva – Alexa-Enabled 2-Port USB Car Charger Review – Voice control navigation and music control

If you can’t control it with your voice is it even worth buying? Love it or loathe it, Amazon Alexa is taking over the world. What started off as a fun voice-controlled speaker has expanded to included wall clocks, microwaves and more. So, it may come as no surprise that Anker under their sub-brand Roav has developed a USB car charger with built-in Alexa. We all know of the danger of using your phone while driving, so of all the things Alexa is being shoved into this one seems to makes some sense. The Roav Viva is similar to...
