Get a range of tech from AUKEY

Get a range of tech from AUKEY

I have done a post previously on power banks from AUKEY on Amazon. They’ve worked well and I passed some of them onto family and friends to find out what they think of them and so far so good.

Today, I have a few different technology items that are useful and can take existing tech in the home to a new level.

The first is this AUKEY Mechanical Keyboard which is backlit with a range of colours. Our keyboard was many years old so an update was needed and instead of the normal plain black style, we decided to get one which lights up.

To me it looks cool but it functions well too. I think my other half is pretty impressed with it seeing as he is the gamer but we use it daily for normal computer tasks.

The second is this Gaming Mouse which looks very technical with all its buttons but is straightforward to use. It is heavier than the average computer mouse but it is designed to be like that and it feels like a solid piece of navigation for the computer. The other feature is that it too lights up and it isn’t overbearing. Rather it is subtle so my desk isn’t looking like some disco party but there are colour changing lights around me.

Thirdly, we have another power bank from AUKEY but this one is a cylinder shape. It is so portable and fits so well in my handbag. Of course, it doesn’t have as much charging power, in that it will give me a couple of good charges on my phone but it is one of the power banks I use for popping in my bag when going for a quick outing or visit or keeping it ready in my bag for when I need it in a emergency when out. For that it has worked well.

What I like so much about this one is that I only need to carry one wire around with me as it has a USB C Port and as I have a Nexus phone which charges from a USB C port, it matches perfectly. It is so convenient for me.

That takes me to this set of 5 USB C cables.

They are different lengths with one short (great for travelling and using with a power bank) and some much longer. This is so handy as it basically fits the needs of every occasion.

This leads me to my last item which is the AUKEY Extension plug.

I’ve been using these for several months now and they are handy in any room. Nowadays my other half and I are charging our phones, power banks and other gadgets, whilst also using the laptop when plugged in and turning the lamp on during the evenings. This extension plug allows you to do all of those.

Iuse the USB part for charging power banks and my Bluetooth speaker and the other plugs are used for laptops and lamps. If I was to choose a top item it would be this due to its usefulness.

I tend to use a lot of gadgets in a moderate way but some items like extension leads, power banks and cables seem to be part of my every day life. If you have any questions about any of these, feel free to ask. I can test out the items in a way that you would use them so you can decide on whether to purchase them.

AUKEY Desk Lamp and Power Bank Review

AUKEY Desk Lamp and Power Bank Review

I have been reviewing similar desk lamps and a whole range of power banks for awhile and I will be writing a post on choosing the right one for you soon. However, this post will focus on products from the AUKEY brand. I do have a reasonable amount of knowledge on both products so I hope to share my thoughts on them.

First up is the:

AUKEY Foldable Desk Lamp

This is a large ┬ábut slimline lamp. It doesn’t take up much desk space but its light area is long so can cover a large area. Then, if you don’t feel like you want it to hang over things, you can just fold it down. There is also a USB port which can be used to charge your phone.

Its other features include being able to control the brightness of the lamp. It has a touch control base, so you slide your finger across to make it brighter or dimmer. There is also a touch button for a 60 minute timer, and of course the useful on/off button.

The good thing about this lamp is that you can choose between white lighting and warm yellow lighting.

The wire to plug it in goes out from the back of the lamp which is handy as it means you can place your lamp wherever you want.

I’ve tested other lamps similar to this and I like how it doesn’t have a huge base. This is ideal for those who have smaller desks or putting on a sideboard or console table. It also is good for those who like a modern design.

You can buy it from Amazon here.

Next up I have 3 power banks from the brand. 2 are very similar but it’s all about the details:

AUKEY Quick Charge 2.0 20000mAh Power Bank

AUKEY Quick Charge 3.0 20000mAh Power Bank

AUKEY Quick Charge 3.0 Portable Charger 30000mAh

With the first two power banks, the difference is the charging speed. The rest of the features are the same.

The power banks with 20000mAh+ numbers basically refer to how much power they can store to charge your phone. 200000 mAh should charge your phone a few times and 300000mAh much more than that.

The 200000mAh powerbanks are slightly smaller than the 300000mAh one but they are bigger than medium sized power banks. What I found that is that they are not as heavy as my other large power banks.

They all are well designed as they are simple, rectangle in shape with no fuss patterns. There are USB ports for all devices which I found really cool.

I like how the power button lights up green when it is on.

Another added feature is a little torch light built in which is cool. You can turn it on/off by pressing and holding the power button.

It’s pretty handy to have any one of these power banks and keeping it in your bag when going to places like work as they fit neatly in the bag, much better than carrying a standard wall charger around. They all come with a charging wire to get you charging your phone quicker.

I’ve found all the products well made and have not found any negatives so far. They are all worth having a look at.
