Product Review – LeWonde Back Plus

Last week, I was sent a LeWonde Back Plus to try out and review.  The Back Plus is a plastic back support designed to help ease back pain.  It can be used in chairs or on the floor paired with exercises.  The plastic arch is adjustable, allowing it to rise to different heights. This looked like a neat product, and I was interested in maybe trying it at work just to see how it would do.  The first thing I noticed taking it out of the box is how hard it is. It is not very flexible at all and I … [Read more...]

Product Review – 41-inch Telescope Tripod from DreamLifter

Last week, I received the 41-inch Telescope Tripod from DreamLifter to test out and review.  The tripod is made from aluminum alloy and can rotate 360 degrees.  It’s lightweight and comes with a phone attachment and a carry bag. I have been looking for a lighter tripod to use for reviews and with my lightbox.  My old one is more heavy duty, and while great for outdoor activities, it’s hard to get my camera screwed onto the base.  The legs also tend to stick when expanding them as … [Read more...]

Product Review – Ozeri ProMax 500 lbs Digital Bath Scale

A few weeks ago, Ozeri asked me to check out their Ozeri ProMax 500 lbs Digital Bath Scale.  This scale has a tempered glass top and a digital face.  It runs on 3 AAA batteries, and also included a tape measure and a fat caliper. I have reviewed several scales so far for Ozeri and all of them have been great.  My favorite has been the Weightmaster II Bath Scale, which I no longer have.  However, this new one is every bit as good even though it doesn’t have a lot of the same features.  Now, … [Read more...]

Product Review – Tea & Fruit Infusion Pitcher

Last week, I was asked to test out and review the Tea & Fruit Infusion Pitcher from Miami Wata.  The pitcher holds 2.1 quarts of water and comes with a plastic fruit infusion attachment, a metal teat infuser basket attachment, and a bonus ice ball maker. I have never attempted to make fruit infusion water before, and in fact have never tried any either.  I ended up having to get some frozen fruit because the stores haven’t have much fresh stuff lately…which is where I think the infusion … [Read more...]
