Novoo AC Power Bank Review – Portable AC Wall Outlet


Portable battery packs are great when you need USB power on the go… but what about when you need AC 110V power on the go?  A portable AC power outlet? That’s a novel idea!  Novoo is the first portable wall outlet I’ve ever seen!!  In fact, I didn’t even hear of Novoo before now. I see that they’re a very solid company with some very innovative products.  I didn’t see a lot of competition so it was an easy decision to buy this unit. And i’m very impressed with the performance, style, and use of this portable AC power bank.

The size is VERY manageable, it’s not a large form factor at all.  I would hardly consider it bulky or too large.  Let’s face it, batteries take up space.  So it’s actually a little smaller than I had anticipated.  There’s no documentation with this product so I first started by turning it on.  I realized you have to press and hold the power button for a couple seconds to get it to turn on.  Once you know that, there’s not much else you need to know — other than it works great!

It has traditional USB, USB-C and yes, an AC Wall Outlet!  It makes it absolutely perfect to charge all your devices — not just the USB ones.  I tried it out on a recent photo shoot where my digital camera batteries were running low so I plugged in the wall outlet charger.  It charged up the camera batteries efficiently and perfectly.  This AC portable power bank has a ton of uses ranging from power outages, on-the go travel AC power needs, camping, backyard power, and lots of more uses!!  You can bring it with you in your car to power non-USB devices (laptop when off does charge), DVD player, …) and even have it around for an emergency outage – power a lamp or a small fan!  The uses are varied and very convenient!!  It holds the charge for a long while and has enough power reserve to be really useful.

Long story short: This portable AC power bank is a very handy device to have.  It won’t power high resource devices, but it sure comes in handy for travel, car trips, backyard living and more!

Surviveware Biodegradeable Wet Wipes


I know it might sound crazy, but when I put in an outhouse in my back yard (I feel funny even saying that), I knew there would have to be some products I needed to find that were biodegradable and healthy for the environment.  I started looking up camping products, and these Surviveware Biodegradeable Wet Wipes came up on Amazon.  I thought I would give them a try as I needed something that we could use for personal cleaning that would break down outside.

These are large wet wipes for adults – not your average baby wipe for sure! It removes the yuck from your body nicely and leaves it actually feeling clean.  They don’t mask it with scent – it’s not a perfumed wipe.  If you don’t have a shower handy, these wet wipes are truly the next best thing!!! No rinse necessary!  And what’s even better is that they decompose right where they are.  If you’re out in the wilderness, just bury it but they work just fine for my non flushing outhouse as well.  They’re tough and big, and most importantly they work well and save the environment at the same time.  One wipe works on your whole body!


Disc-O-Bed Camping Home Bed Bunk Bench Cot


I just built a clubhouse which is a very unique recreational “man cave” if you will, and I needed a portable temporary bed / cot to use out there when someone decided to spend the night. I wanted something durable, easy to assemble, and easy to store.  Space is at a minimum – think of it as a tiny house.  Small houses are the rage right now — personally, I don’t think I could live in a tiny / small house – but that’s what this clubhouse is really.  It’s like a separate man cave!!!  And it needed a unique sleep system that’s as unique as the room itself!!

I did my research and came up with the disc-o-bed (disco bed is a really funny name, I admit!)  I wanted something versatile that could be used in a variety of ways.  Discobed to the rescue!!!

The discobed arrived quickly and I was surprised at how compact it was.  It wasn’t overly heavy, but it did feel like the pieces were high quality and built to be rugged without being too bulky.

Easily and without any tools, the bunk bed was assembled in no time. Everything clicks together, and while it definitely would be easier with two people, it wasn’t a huge deal to do myself.  The wheels are separate from the poles but lock into position.  The poles come apart for easy disassembly and storage.  The top bunk has an extension piece that you can actually not put in making the disc-o-bed two separate beds instead of a bunk bed!  With space being so limited in the clubhouse, the bunk bed will be perfect when there’s two people spending the night!

It converts to a bench too equally as easy.  Just take the top bunk long roller pole and move it down to the first bunk and you now have a portable couch! I will say, though, that pillows are definitely needed for any extended laying back… it’s not something that I would spend much time on without a pillow or two in back of me, but that’s a minor issue.  If I’m sleeping on this portable bed, I’d be having a pillow anyhow!

Don’t mind the cute poop emoji pillow! 🙂 This bunk bed is extremely strong – while you might think it’s for kid / child sleepovers, think again.  Each of the 2 bunks can hold up to 500 pounds.  To test that theory, my good friend Brian decided to give it a try.

 

And you might think, “that’s great… but he’s not on the top bunk… what about that?”

Again, Brian to the rescue.  He said he felt perfectly fine up on the top bunk.  I decided to go in the bottom bunk… and when 2 full size large adult males were on it, it was perfectly stable.  Rock solid.  Plenty of room on the bottom bunk as well!!!

 

There’s a carrying bag so all the pieces / parts fit perfectly in there so you can take it with you on the go – if you were going to the beach, or camping for example.  There’s two separate carry bags, so if you’re only bringing one disc-o-bed with you, you don’t need to take all the pieces.  The bag is very well made and easy to carry.

 

Oh and I forgot to mention, there’s a front pocket that you can put all your items in to keep them safe… empty your pockets so you don’t wind up with your change all over the place!  Even a beverage can be held in there!!!! Yes, a portable bunk bed with a cup holder.  Discobed has thought of everything!!!

 

And lastly, this is how I store my bed, in the loft of the clubhouse. Sure, I could put the bed frame in the bag, but I keep it out as well as the poles and wheels so it’s even easier to grab down and set up in just a couple of minutes.  For my application, it’s easy to do it this way, but to be truly portable, just put it in the carry case bag.

 

It even stores in the loft perfectly without disassembling.  I cannot say enough about this truly remarkable portable sleeping system.  It really is a couch, bed, and bunk bed all in one.  Use it for unexpected (or expected) guests, kid sleepovers (or adult sleepovers when someone has had one too many especially!), parties, lounging by the campfire, camping, heck I would even bring it to the beach!  If you’re spending the night at someone’s house, put the disc-o-bed in your car and instead of sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress with springs that get you right in your back, sleep on the discobed.  Honestly, it’s way more comfortable than it looks – if i’m being completely honest it has far exceeded my expectations!!! The use and functionality of this product is outstanding.  HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

The Best Christmas House Laser Light Show Outdoor or Indoor

If you’re looking for a Christmas (Holiday) House Laser Light Show, this is the one you want!! This showers your house with lights!  There’s a huge difference between this and other ones I’ve seen in the neighborhood. In fact, my neighbor across the street has one (they’re very popular!) and I swear I can hit his house brighter from across the road than his laser that’s right in his front yard!!

This YMing laser light is powerful and very bright – it definitely makes a difference. It’s switchable from solid green dots, solid red dots, and combination of solid green and red dots. The other button changes from stationary to moving dots and also changes direction. The cord is long but it’s best when used with an extension cord. The housing is waterproof and comes with a solid base for table top (yes, it can be used indoor, too!) and a stake for ground mounting with an small extension pole (maybe 6-8″).

It works best when you have it out a ways from your house to flood the maximum area but you can move it closer to adjust the spread pattern. This is a very beautiful effect, perfect for the holidays! Take my advice and buy this laser light show!!!

Rallt Double Camping Hammock


This Rallt Double Camping Hammock is perfect for on the go campers or even for your backyard. Use the nylon rope that it comes with to attach to trees or even sides of buildings/sheds. Personally, I used a hammock stand that I bought on Amazon for this purpose as I wanted something sturdy and semi-permanent in the back yard. I don’t have a lot of trees so this worked out perfectly.

It comes all folded up into its pouch which makes it perfect for travel camping. You can even put it in your vehicle for an impromptu chill session!!! Super lightweight yet durable. Made of breathable material so it’s not too hot when you’re in it for a long period of time. How compact it is!! It’s wonderful. There is also an inside pouch for your cell phone, keys, or anything else you may want to hold onto (things fall out of your pocket when laying down!!) It’s super stylish and it’s affordably priced.
