          Made with faux suede microfiber and eco-friendly filler, these beanbags offer a fun twist on comfort that will get you excited about lounging. Made in the USA, the seams are double-stitched to prevent any leaks. You simply can't go wrong with the Ellianna Bean Bag.

          My wife and I were looking for a nice big bean bag for sitting in while video gaming or reading a book in the corner when we found this. This is by far the ultimate over-sized bean bag chair. I had a bean bag chair growing up but it was about 1/3 the size of this one and not near as comfortable. This one is very, very comfortable and perfect for long gaming sessions on the Xbox.
          When we went to put it all together we found that the product instructions were not that great. The process itself was fairly straight forward though. After opening the cover you remove the compressed foam from the plastic wrap and bag. Then insert it into the cover. It is better to have the cover opened first Read More
          My wife and I were looking for a nice big bean bag for sitting in while video gaming or reading a book in the corner when we found this. This is by far the ultimate over-sized bean bag chair. I had a bean bag chair growing up but it was about 1/3 the size of this one and not near as comfortable. This one is very, very comfortable and perfect for long gaming sessions on the Xbox.
          When we went to put it all together we found that the product instructions were not that great. The process itself was fairly straight forward though. After opening the cover you remove the compressed foam from the plastic wrap and bag. Then insert it into the cover. It is better to have the cover opened first before inserting the foam bag as it does leave trace amounts of foam fuzz on the outside cover surface if it comes in contact with it.
          We found the enclosed care instructions confusing in that it recommends that you prewash the cover before first use. The actual tag on the cover says NOT to wash. We ended up going with the tag on the cover that said not to wash. They did include one useful trick of using a bent paper clip to open and close the zipper on the cover which was perfect. It made it much easier to open and close especially after inserting the filler capsule.
          The filler capsule is made up of medium sized chunks of foam. It comes in a super compressed vacuum form. The foam expands over time in the cover. The instructions state that it can take up to 3 days for the foam to fully expand. Regular fluffing is recommended. The denseness of the foam supports your whole body when you sit on it. The foam puffs back up after you get up. The foam has an odor to it that takes a few days to gas off and go away.
          The bag itself is definitely large and takes a bit of heft to move around. It is very, very comfortable though. It does take up a bit of real estate. You don't realize how large this bean bag is until it's fully expanded then you step back and go "wow"!
          Our son immediately took it upon himself to fully utilize the new bean bag. He set up his laptop and headphones and started gaming on it right away. He said it was quite comfortable and he enjoyed using it.

          I just installed this Chamberlain Model C273 Smart Garage Opener on an insulated 2-car garage door. I was a little worried of how loud it was going to be since there is a bedroom located directly over the garage. All the chain driven garage door openers we have owned in the past have always been quite loud and I assumed this one was going to be no different. Boy was I wrong. This chain drive is just about as quiet as our belt driven one.

          I just installed this Chamberlain Model C273 Smart Garage Opener on an insulated 2-car garage door. I was a little worried of how loud it was going to be since there is a bedroom located directly over the garage. All the chain driven garage door openers we have owned in the past have always been quite loud and I assumed this one was going to be no different. Boy was I wrong. This chain drive is just about as quiet as our belt driven one.
          This Chamberlain garage door opener has an app that you can download so that you can open and close the door remotely via your cell phone. You also get a text anytime the garage door is opened or closed which is fantastic. I also like that there is a little picture on the app that shows whether you garage door is open or closed. This is great for those moments when you leave the house and can't remember if you closed the garage door or not. Now all you have to do is open the app and verify the picture showing it is closed.
          This opener comes with (1) 3-button remote, (1) wall control, (2) safety sensors & battery backup. Battery backup is now mandatory in California per SB-969 due to all the recent wildfires. There were several people who were trapped in their garages with no power to their openers during the wildfires so having a battery backup is now mandatory. The battery is said to last between one to two years so you will have to replace it periodically but that is a small price to pay for safety.
          This opener comes with a 6 year warranty on the motor and a 1 year warranty on the chain. I've had several Chamberlain garage door openers over the years in all the different homes we have owned and they have been very, very reliable. I don't foresee this one being any different.
          The instructions for installing this opener were fantastic. It took about one hour to install since I was able to use the old mounting bracket for attaching the motor to. There are also YouTube videos people have posted that can help with installation if you are a more visual person.
          All in all we are very, very happy with our new Chamberlain opener. It is pretty cool that even garage door openers now have tech added to them. It makes a big difference. If this opener is anything like all our previous Chamberlain openers we will get years and years of use out of it. It is not uncommon for these openers to last 20 years or longer. Read Less

          My wife and I were looking to change from the old can lighting to the new LED recessed lighting in our MBR bath room.This Commercial Electric Ultra Slim Square Color Selectable Canless LED Recessed Kit was perfect for our needs. I had to watch a YouTube video on how to remove our old canned lighting so that I could expose the wiring so I could attach it to this unit. Once that was done everything else was pretty straight forward.
          This new Slim LED light came with quick connects inside a junction box (commonly known as a "J-Box") with quick connects for the black, white & ground wires. The quick connects are designed to be used with 14 gauge wires. Since my wiring in the ceiling was 12 Read More

Once that was done everything else was pretty straight forward.
          This new Slim LED light came with quick connects inside a junction box (commonly known as a "J-Box") with quick connects for the black, white & ground wires. The quick connects are designed to be used with 14 gauge wires. Since my wiring in the ceiling was 12 gauge for some reason I had to cut the quick connects off and use wire nuts to make the connections but that was no big deal.
          This light is future proof in that it can be changed from a soft white orangish color of 3,000K to a nice bright white of 4,000K to a more bluish white color at 5,000K. We ended up setting it at 3,000K because it most closely matched the other lighting in our bath room at this time. In the future when we change out some of the other lighting in our bathroom we have the option of flipping the switch to a different setting to more closely match the new lighting if/when we change it out.
          This LED light puts out 540 lumens of light and it consumes 9 watts of electricity. It has a color accuracy of 90 (CRI). It can be dimmed from 10% -100% when used with a compatible dimmer switch. It comes with a 5-year product warranty and has a rated life of 50,000 hours. Overall this is a great light and we couldn't be happier with it. Read Less

          If you are one of those people who often flips their pillow at night to get to the cool side, this may be the product for you. This quilted pillow protector has a layer of cooling material in each square. It was noticeable cooler on both sides when sleeping on it. A lot of cooling pillows usually have the cooling material on one side only. It is a more subtle cool than those types of pillows, but it also preserves the softness of whatever pillow you are using.
          This cover is made of 100% polyester and is machine washable on gentle cycle. It fit my standard pillow perfectly with a little extra space to spare. The tag on the pillow called it a jumbo. The measurements are 29" x 21".

          As a basic pillow protector, it encloses the pillow on all sides with a zipper opening on one end. This keeps allergens like pet dander and dust mites from getting on your pillow through the open end of a regular pillow case. This also makes your pillow safe for use by those with allergies, as it essentially becomes hypoallergenic with the protector. It also adds an additional layer of protection that helps keep your pillow fresh and clean longer, and extends its life. Read Less

          The EGO Nexus Power Station is a battery-powered alternative to gas generators that delivers clean, quiet, portable power. Its safe to use indoors and out, so the possibilities are endless. Bring it to your next tailgate party to power a slow cooker or griddle. When the electricity goes out, use it to power a TV, microwave and full-sized refrigerators. Bring it on your next camping trip to plug in lights, fans, induction cook tops and play music. With the EGO Nexus Power Station, you now have power when you want it, power when you need it.

          From the minute I received an email from EGO saying the Nexus Portable Power Station was coming to the market I knew I wanted one. I have been looking for a small gasoline powered generator for quite some time to use when the power goes out and for tailgating.
          I wanted something small enough that I could carry it around and that I could use it in the house. The small gasoline powered ones you can carry around but you can't use them in the house. This EGO battery powered portable power station is perfect because you can use it in the house with no problems whatsoever.

          From the minute I received an email from EGO saying the Nexus Portable Power Station was coming to the market I knew I wanted one. I have been looking for a small gasoline powered generator for quite some time to use when the power goes out and for tailgating.
          I wanted something small enough that I could carry it around and that I could use it in the house. The small gasoline powered ones you can carry around but you can't use them in the house. This EGO battery powered portable power station is perfect because you can use it in the house with no problems whatsoever. I had it sitting just a few feet away from me with it powering my TV and Xbox One X and you can't hear it or smell it which is perfect! It's awesome not having to worry about gas and oil to keep it running.
          All you have to do to be ready for the next power outage or tailgate party is attach any EGO batteries you have (or it came with) to the charger (up to a total of four) and plug it into an existing outlet and wait. This unit came with (2) of the 7.5 Ah batteries and I already had two more of the 2.5 Ah batteries from my EGO string trimmer and hedge trimmer so I was good to go. It took a little over 7 hours to fully charge all four batteries. Once charged you can just set in on the floor or on a shelf until it's needed.
          You can power just about anything with this portable power station. You can power TV's, WiFi routers & modems, fridges, microwaves, lights & power tools and anything else you can think of. If you have a medical condition and you need a back up power source this is perfect because you can literally set it right next to a bed or chair with no noise or fumes.
          One other thing that is great about having this portable power station for is that sometimes you don't want to have to run a long extension cord to do some kind of job that is in a remote location. You can put this in the back of your vehicle or carry it to where you need it and have all the convience of a household power outlet. There has been several times in my life when I needed power to do something but I couldn't do it. That won't be a problem ever again.
          This portable power station comes with a place for the cord storage on the very top of the unit. It has (3) 120 Volt power outlets and (4) USB power ports that can either power your equipment or be used to recharge it. There is a super bright LCD display (that can be seen in daylight) on the front of the unit that will display the time left when charging your EGO batteries and the same display will show you how much time you have left when using the power station to power any equipment based on how much power you are pulling out of it.
          There is a reset button in case the unit gets overloaded along with a power button that turns the unit on/off. There is also a button for the USB outlets and another one for the 120 Volt outlets. When I first plugged my TV into the outlet I couldn't figure out why the TV wouldn't turn on. Needless to say you have to hit the little button for the outlets so that it can draw power from them.
          This EGO Portable Power Station also has shock absorbent construction in case it should get handled a little roughly. It also has weather-resistant construction in case there is moisture in the air. It also came with front and rear vent covers (that I had to install) to protect it in case this unit is used in damp conditions. It also comes with a 5 year warranty on the power station itself and a 3 year warranty on the batteries which is excellent. I would highly recommend registering your tools and batteries via email. Especially on something with this high of value.
          Since baseball season just begun a while back I will be using this EGO portable power station while tailgating at the A's games that I go to. My cousin is a season ticket holder and I like to go to a few games each year. I'm looking forward to showing up with my new EGO battery powered power station and blowing his mind. He's going to love it for powering his TV, satellite dish and blender as needed. He's really into technology and I can't wait to show him this.
          There is also an EGO Power + App that you can download but I haven't done that yet. Based on the few reviews I have seen on the App Store it's not quite ready for prime time yet but I will give it a try soon.
          I'm a huge EGO tool fan and I can't wait to see what they come out with next. It's amazing all the tools they have and how well they are being received based on customer feedback. I'm hoping this portable power station will last me year and years. Based on the EGO reputation I don't see that being a problem. Good job EGO on yet another great product! Read Less

          The remote runs on a watch battery. Specifically a CR2032 3V. I have attached a picture of the back of the remote. Hopefully it allows you to read it. Let me know if I you need more help.

          Answer: 
          Since the light is held in place by two spring clips you can remove the light after it's installed to access the switch as long as you can reach the light from a ladder. If you had this light installed in some place that is way out of reach then it would be hard to access. The switch is "in-line" between the light and the junction box so it should be accessible.
