[REVIEW] Suaoki 4-in-1 Handheld Led Rechargeable Flashlight Torch Light 5000mAh Portable Battery

I have bought this about a month ago and had plenty of time to try it out. The torch comes nicely packaged in the usual brown Suaoki cardboard box.

I’ve charged the torch for about 4 hours the first time I used it and this charge lasted me for about 1 week (used every night while walking the dog). I have to admit I have only used it a s a torch, and WOW what a torch this is… it lights up like a lighthouse… to power it on you have to press the button for about 3 seconds and then pushing the button again, the light seems to increase in intensity and power, and after 3 clicks goes into what I think is a SOS mode.

I haven’t used the USB charging yet, but it should work without any issues.

The torch also has a survival hammer at one end, which as far as I can tell is similar to what firemen and rescue personnel use to break glass in case of emergencies. Didn’t get to try it yet, but it’s good to know I have one.

The torch now stays fully charged in my car ready for any sort of emergency.

Avantek DT61 Doorbell Review

This plug-in wireless doorbell from Avantek was sent to me as part of a Facebook promotion. I have tested other different Avantek products, but never would’ve thought I will test a doorbell. 🙂

The doorbell comes in the usual Avantek packaging, made out of recycled cardboard. The box is sturdy and looks well made. Inside the box you will find a wireless receiver, 1 transmitter, a double sided adhesive pad, some screws and the instruction manual.

The product boasts the following features :48 music chimes and 4 level adjustable volume A range of up to 200m for the remote Low power consumption. Very sleek design with blue LEDs.

The doorbell just plugs into a normal 3 pin UK socket. The chimes are pretty nice, but have to admit they all sound a bit alike to me. Nevertheless I’m sure everybody can find a tune to like. The volume level adjustment works great and found that even at level 2 the doorbell was loud enough to hear while watching TV.

I have not tried the up to 200m range, but tried using the remote from the back garden, about 50m away and the doorbell rang without any problems. I personally don’t understand why anybody would have a doorbell 200m away?!?!

One thing, I found tricky was opening the remote to remove the plastic strip between the battery and the contacts. Just make sure you have a small flat screwdriver and carefully separate the 2 pieces of the remote. Also, the battery is one that I’ve never seen before, a 12V, 23A battery, but I’m hoping this will last a long time.

I installed the remote just by using the adhesive pad that comes in the box and applied it to my PVC front door frame. If needed, there are also screw fixings in the box for fitting to a wooden frame.

All in all this is a good looking and very easy to setup and fit doorbell.
