We’ve been reviewing plenty of wireless charging options over the years and have had a ho-hum attitude to most of them. The initial excitement of being able to charge our devices wirelessly and easily has waned a bit.

But having highlighted a few EFM products recently and knowing they produce some good quality gear, we were willing to have a look at their latest wireless charger. The main feature of which seems to be leather.

Leather?

Just a touch of luxury to differentiate it from all the other chargers on the market?

Well, I discovered there were other things that made this my favourite wireless charger...

Synology has focused a lot of effort on their OS, DiskStation Manager (DSM). Over the years, there has been a steady flow of improvements and increase of ecosystem to extend the base functionality.

Synology has been kind enough to provide a DS218+ for review. Instead of the usual hardware focus, DigitalReviews is looking at some specific data protection with Hyper Backup in DSM.

Most of us fly regularly and need to take along all the essentials to keep ourselves looking good and fresh for several weeks and carry our electronic friends along as well.

That’s requirement Number One: lightweight travel gear so that we can maximise our luggage allowance.
But it also has to be strong, durable and good looking.

That’s why we again looked at Travelon gear for this year’s line-up of different pieces of luggage.

After having reviewed the top-of-the-line Miele vacuum cleaners over the past couple of years, our attention now turns to what might arguably be the most sophisticated autonomous vacuum cleaner in the world: the Miele Scout RX2 Home Vision. This robot vacuum cleaner has just been released onto the Australian market.

Have a look as we put this roving robot to the test as it scouts and scoots around a house that was definitely not built very robot-friendly!

So how did it go?

How often do parents check up on their newborns? Most new parents want to be able to check on how bub is doing without disturbing their sleep – or interrupting their own to see if their baby is still sound asleep.

When MobileZap introduced the AGL Remote Controlled LED Lights not so long ago, I knew I wanted a bunch of them.

They are billed as “Under Cabinet” lights but can be used in so many applications that every household could easily use a dozen.

Over the years we’ve been reviewing many items that have been a “Model 2” – an improved product. Like last week’s new Megaboom. We love to see how a good product can be made even better.

When we did a hands-on take of the original Bissell Bolt ION XRT Stick Vac we gave it a big Thumbs Up but also noticed a few points where it could be improved.

Bissell recently released their new iteration of the Bolt and made it into an even more compelling tool for your broom cabinet.

Here is the Bissell MultiReach Bolt 36V and our findings.
