I have been avoiding USB Hubs after a bad experience with one a few years ago. I woke up in the middle of the night to a burning smell. I found the USB 1.0 HUB that was connected to my laptop with 3 other connected devices fried. Since the circuit inside the hub had burned, all the devices that were connected became inoperable. Currently with all the advancement in technology, USB HUBS have gotten better and more reliable. I had the pleasure of reviewing the HooToo HT-UH010 7-Port USB 3.0 HUB with 2 Smart Charging Ports and I love it. It is a great product with a very attractive design.

With smartphones being so popular these days, everyone I know owns one and they all use it to take pictures all the time. For most, their smartphone is the only camera they use. However, the photos taken on it is limited to our arms length. To solve this dilemma a device is created :) and I got a chance to check out the TaoTronics TT-SH10 Extendable Self-portrait Wireless Bluetooth Remote Shutter Stick Monopod for smartphones also known as the "selfie stick." We love using this device.

Ever wanted to listen to music or answer phone calls in the shower? Well, then your problems are solved because the TaoTronics TT-SK03 is a water resistant wireless bluetooth stereo shower speaker that is a great little device that does it all. I like this compact built, stylish device made with a rubbery material on the outside. It has a suction cup that we can use to attach to any slippery flat surface.

TaoTronics® Elune Dimmable Eye-Care LED Desk Lamp has seven levels that is operated with a touch slide. The dimming feature in this lamp has memory function, so we can set to the level we prefer the most. The adjustable arm helps with directing light, and the LED does not have dark area or glaring. The lamp emits white light that is perfect for our eyes because it is not overwhelmingly bright.

I really enjoy having useful devices in my home, in the car and when we travel. There are many technology devices that make everyday activities convenient. This TaoTronics' Battery-Powered Motion-Sensing LED Stick-Anywhere Nightlight has become useful for us, as I have placed it in the entrance to our home, so I have a light source when I walk in. I like that the energy saving LED light is bright, and has a white light instead of a dull light.
This Air Vent Mount Car Smartphone Holder from TaoTronics® is a good alternative to suction cup enabled car accessory holders. Having the phone “at our fingertips” attached to the car air vent is very useful. I like that it holds our phone securely without scratching it using two padded expandable arms. The way this holder is designed enables it to fits most phones with different charging inputs. Another advantage of this holder is that it can be turned 360 degrees making it easy to view your phone at a comfortable angle as well as to use larger screened phones in landscape mode.
