          I was looking for a different kind of icicle Christmas lights and these look pretty good. There are 8 of them on the string and they are pretty good and bright since they are LEDs. You can connect up to 18 stings together. The lights are always on at the top of each light and then light a shooting star they flash to the bottom of the icicle. The icicles are 3 sizes., between 11 and 7 inches long. The light string is 8.5 ft long.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Nice Design

          Gonzo Natural Magic Odor Air Magnet absorbs airborne odors through a chemical reaction and odors are converted into non-toxic odorless compound. Does not mask odors with powerful scents like other air freshener products but instead completely absorbs and eliminates unpleasant odors such as pet odors, urine odors, mildew odors, smoke and cigarette odor. Activated charcoal works to naturally eliminate odors from offices, homes, cars, and any other area odor is a problem.

          We used this odor air magnet to help remove the musky odor of our cabin from being shut up for several months. It was simple to use since all you have to do it just pull off the top and put it in the room. It seemed to take longer to remove the musky odor than we expected. It says it absorbs airborne odors through a chemical reaction and they are converted into non-toxic odorless compound.There was no powerful scents like most air freshener products. It has activated charcoal that naturally eliminated the musky odors. Looking forward to using this product each year as we open out cabin after the winter months.
          Pros: Easy to Use, large coverage area, long lasting

          This 42 Qt. Portable Battery Powered Smart Chest Fridge Freezer has been designed so you can use it in almost any conditions when you have power and when you don't. The internal battery can be charged from an electric outlet while at the same time you are cooling the freezer off to transport products that need to stay cold or frozen. After it had reached about 15 degrees I loaded it up with meats some of which were frozen and some that were not. I put the frozen things on the bottom.

After it had reached about 15 degrees I loaded it up with meats some of which were frozen and some that were not. I put the frozen things on the bottom. In just a few minutes it cooled everything down to 10 degrees. We then turned it off and drove for 3 hours. You cannot use the battery power to keep it cool in the trunk of your car because there is not enough ventilation for it to operate that way. When we arrived at our destination I pulled it in and it was still at 34 degrees. The frozen things on the bottom were still frozen and the other things were still nice and cool. If It was in the back of a truck where there was ventilation it could have operated on the rechargeable battery and would have stayed at the cooler temps. The unit comes with a adapter for normal electricity, an adapter for plugging it into a car charging outlet, and an adapter for plugging it into a solar panel which is not included. On the battery power it will operate for about 10 hours depending on how cold you set it for. It has a USB port to charge your smaller devices ;like cell phones and tablets, and a digital control panel to monitor the temperature and other settings in the compartment. You can also modify the temperature with the Bluetooth enabled App with the ACOPower triangular logo. It has wheels and handles on each side to provide easy transporting from one place to another. It weights about 33 lbs to start with so once you load it with food you can expect it to weigh about 50-60 lbs. It will freeze things down to -4°F, which will keep things for a long time. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy, rechargeable, online app

          In our community we occasionally have solicitors and other people come to our front door. We wanted a way to be able to see who it is without having to answer the door. Many neighbors have had trouble with the sensitivity settings on their door bell camera systems causing them to go off every time a car goes by. I saw this camera as a solution to our problem and it really is once I found out how to set it up. The camera came well packaged, but it didn't have any instructions, so I had to search the YI website which is https://www.yitechnology.com/yi-outdoor-camera.

          In our community we occasionally have solicitors and other people come to our front door. We wanted a way to be able to see who it is without having to answer the door. Many neighbors have had trouble with the sensitivity settings on their door bell camera systems causing them to go off every time a car goes by. I saw this camera as a solution to our problem and it really is once I found out how to set it up. The camera came well packaged, but it didn't have any instructions, so I had to search the YI website which is https://www.yitechnology.com/yi-outdoor-camera. Those instructions were to install the YI app, enter your wifi network and password, plug in the camera, connect your camera to your wifi system and them scan the bar code that the app produces. After that you need to select the settings that work for you for sensitivity and detection area. The camera itself is weatherproof, is night vision capable, has two way audio, a wide field of vision, and has 1080 HD quality. It comes with a 3 meter cable, but because the cable needs to be plugged into a USB port that is included to plug into the house's electric current it sticks out from the outlet quite a bit. I replaced the USB transformer with a smaller one because of that. Included in the box are the wall fasteners to route the cable to the outlet. Once installed you can move the camera on its swivel to point in the direction you want it to watch for you. You can add a Micro SD card to record alert audio on continuous loop or you can pay for a cloud account. The audio from the camera is very good. To send audio to the camera you have to hold down the mic button on your cell phone to talk to the person the camera is alerting you about. Also one of the setting is to have a alarm sound sent from the camera when it detects motion. We are still learning how to adjust the sensitivity so that bugs at night don't cause the camera to set off the alarms. Other than that we are very pleased with his new monitoring system for our house. . Read Less

          We assembled the fire pit and are overall pleased with the product. However, there are places, mostly on the sides of the blocks, that the cement is visible as there is no paint. We are interested in getting paint in order to touch up these spots of missing paint. Is there matching paint for this pit that we can get? Thank you!
