Review of the 15 watt rechargeable flood light from GRDE

A full review of the Sport car accident camera. How to set up the camera from Russian to English. Location of the sd card and usb slot for charging. Full setting up of the menu and installing the device in my car, then a full road test of the cam showing the results through the cam lens, both day and night . Although the night use is awful the results in daylight still make this a bargain camera at £15.00, from Amazon.

Review of a solar security light  save electricity. Dont pay for mains electricity

Review and how to fix up a cheap Rolston solar security light £13.00 from e-bay. Save electric with these cheap and cheerful lights, one of which I have had for more than 18 months and it`s still going strong. These units do not even need direct sunlight to work. They click on for 20 seconds when they sense you, plenty of time to get up those dark steps. The bright leds shine my steps up a treat.

Review of the sport accident car cam. Keep your no claims bonus with this cheap device.

Led sensor security lights save money on electric running cost and this one has to be one of the cheapest yet that has proven reliable and cost effective. Turns on only when sensing movement.

The cheapest way of securing your home with this cheap camera that actually works. It is not a dummy camera. Don't pay hundreds of pounds for complicated camera systems that require miles of wire and complicated setting up and in most cases, some one to install it all

Need a camera you can view on your mobile phone? That also sends alerts when movement is detected. You can even speak into your mobile and be heard through the camera speaker. Great not just for security but also to keep an eye on your pets at home

Claud Butler electric cycle review. The Glide1.  A full test ride.

Claud Butler Glide 1 review and test ride. Quite pleased with the performance although you do have to pedal for the motor to cut in and then keep the throttle open you then do not need to pedal. The other little thing to get used to is that even without the throttle open the motor still kicks in after a certain speed of the pedals. Hope this review was of some benefit to anyone looking to purchase one of these bikes.

Solar step lights in action at night and review

If you have steps leading up or down to your property then these are really useful for seeing your way.  So much easier on the eyes than mains lights. They are available from Amazon. Currently at £4.32 each.

Home review of the Andrew James halogen oven. Save money compared with gas or electric ovens

We purchased our Halogen oven and were unsure just how good it was going to be.  We have tried lots of recipes in it now, not just recipes from the recipe books that you can purchase specifically for the Halogen oven, but also ones from other cook books or that we had on our shelf at home.  We can only say that they taste amazing and are cooked in less time than in an ordinary oven. We have lots of Halogen oven videos on the navigation bar
