Just Mobile claim their AluCharge is the slimmest USB charger in the world, providing four USB ports of fast charging power in a body just 1.8 centimetres thick. Let’s take a closer look in this brief review.Design
They weren’t kidding — the AluCharge is dwarfed even by the velcro-tied cloverleaf power cable that comes in the box. The body of the AluCharge is made of aluminium (go figure), with the leading edge made out of black plastic.
This face contains the four USB ports mentioned earlier, each of which provides up to 2.4A of power. The box itself can provide 6.1A (31W) in total, so you won’t be able to reach maximum [...]
Today we’re taking a brief look at the Just Mobile HeadStand Avant. This is a headphone stand constructed from aircraft-grade aluminium, offered at a rather premium price point at £40.Assembly
The HeadStand Avant comes packed in a thin white cardboard box. There are only four pieces; each made out of aluminium and polished to a shine.
Assembly is straightforward — just remove the screw at the bottom of the longest pole, insert it into the base, and screw it tight with a Phillips screwdriver. You do the same for the top of the pole, but this one can be unscrewed and replaced by hand. Place the remaining pole perpendicularly, and replace the [...]
This 1080p gaming monitor from BenQ has it all: a 31.5-inch display with 1800R curvature, a high refresh rate of 144Hz and a VA panel that boasts high contrast, good colour accuracy and decent viewing angles too. It’s not the highest resolution panel in the world, but that makes it a lot easier to hit its high refresh rate. It’s a strong set of specs, but how does it perform in the real world? Let’s put it to the test!Design
The EX3200R is a stylish monitor with medium-size bezels and a noticeably curved display. The curvature provides a more immersive experience, fitting the screen more easily into your peripheral vision, and in turn making it a [...]
How does BenQ’s entry-level 144Hz monitor stand up against the competition? Let’s take a look.Design
The XL2411 has a slightly asymmetric design, with a chunkier bezel on the bottom right corner which houses the downward-facing buttons for the on-screen display. Apart from this, the bezels are of moderate thickness on all four sides, making this monitor less than ideal for multi-monitor setups. The lips around the screen are apparently specially designed to minimise distractions caused by reflections, although we couldn’t notice any specific difference in a blind trial.
The monitor is constructed from black matte plastic, with none of the red accents [...]
Mechanical keyboards are brilliant: they feel great to type on, you can customise them with fun keycaps and they’ll last for approximately one billion years. However, they’re often expensive too, with premium models easily costing £100 or more.
That makes the A-Jazz AK33 a breath of fresh air: it’s a full mechanical keyboard, complete with Cherry MX-style switches with trendy RGB backlighting, for just £40. Is this gaming keyboard the deal of the century, or are A-Jazz cutting corners where it matters?

The Oittm Charging Stand is an aluminium-wrapped plastic cylinder, nine centimetres across and eleven centimetres tall.The top of the stand has a small square hole, to which one of three charging adapters can be fitted to suit your device.
On the front of the device, there are three further USB ports. Each port delivers 5V / 2.4A, up to a maximum of 6A for the whole device. No fast charging technologies are included however. That means you can recharge smartphones and tablets in addition to the Apple Watch, but you won’t be able to take advantage of Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 or Oppo’s Super VOOC charging.
The back of [...]
