Looking for some tasty Belgian chocolate? Look no further than Bouchard’s. Courtesy of Bouchard, we have the ark chocolate napolitains. They are wafer thin treats that will satisfy your dark chocolate cravings. This is my first foray into Belgian chocolate of the dark flavor, and it only has a hint of that distinct Belgian taste that I’m familiar with, but it still is excellent. It’s firmer than other Belgian’s I have tasted in the past, but that’s on par with other dark’s that I’ve had. The flavor is great and sure to satisfy.
Get wet and wild!.. or just get clean with the PowerSpa 5 setting hand shower. I was sent this item by PowerSpa to give it a test ride and a review. This shower head arrived just in time to replace an old unit that needed updating.
Included with this set is everything you need to get your new hand shower installed, including some teflon tape. Installation is a breeze, and the final result is a shower that’s sure to have a setting for your needs. It ranges from a mist to a strong focused pulse, to a full spray. The mist was something I had never used on a shower head and it was quite nice, saturating type feel. Of the five selections, one was kind of trickle that I wasn’t a big an of, but the other four moeds provided a nice range.
The handheld feels good in the hand, and the dial is easy to click through the different modes. The connections are sealed tight with no drips, and the unit as a whole is real nice, especially for the price. At the end of the day, minus the one mode I didn’t like, I found this shower head to be a nice upgrade to the aging sprayer.
Courtesy of the CakFun, today we look at the W-King Bluetooth speaker. Boasting 6 Watts of power, this speaker delivers. Connecting to the Bluetooth 4.0 speaker is a breeze with NFC. Just tap your phone to it to pair, and you’re ready to enjoy your music with a crisp clean sound. No phone handy? Just turn on the FM functionality and listen to your favorite radio station.
Overall, the fit and finish of this speaker is great. It claims to be waterproof, though I only tried it out in the shower, but had no issues with it getting splashed. The base of the speaker has a standard mount for easily attaching to your bike or your helmet when your not Go-Proing. The casing on the speaker feels like a hard rubber, so it should handle drops decently. This speaker is my new go to for the outdoors.

The folks over at CVLIFE provided me one of their scopes to review, and I have to say that I’m impressed. With it’s 2.5 – 10x range, and a laser sight to boot, this CVLIFE scope delivers. The optics are clear and the adjustable green or red illuminated cross hairs are great for lining up your target.
Mounted on my Weaver handle mount, the scope was right at home. The biggest issue with this scope is the eye relief. Due to this, you’re going to want to use this on a firearm with low recoil, or you may find this scope smacking you right in the eye. For the AR, this is perfect, though it would be more at home on a rifle with a shorter stock than my fixed length one I currently have on my rifle.
The laser can be turned on and off easily with the press of a button. Indoors it works great, but on a bright day, it can be hard to locate at 50 yards. I found adjusting it to be spot on takes a little patience, but once you get it set, it is fairly accurate and hold it’s place fairly well.
Zeroing in the optics at 50 yards was pretty quick and it held zero for the 100 or so round I tested it out with. I was only able to use it up to 100 yards for this test run, but the accuracy was great.
For a budget scope, this one delivers. Not only does this scope come with lens caps, but also everything you need to mount it to your rails, and batteries as well. Time will tell how well this one holds up, but based on my first impressions, I would definitely consider another one of these as a future purchase.

Today we’ll look at the SoundFit Plus, courtesy of the good folks at AYL. This little speaker packs a punch. With 10 watts of power, it gets pumping pretty loud. The Bluetooth 4.0 connects quickly and has pretty decent range. The sound quality is pretty decent to boot. Another great feature of this speaker is the IPX5 rating meaning it can withstand splashes from water. While not submersible, it works great in the shower assuming you have tightly secured the port cover. This speaker also comes with a screw port so that you could mount it like a GoPro to your bike or something of your liking.
All in all, it’s a pretty great speaker. If there’s one minor beef I have with this speaker, it’s that occasionally the sound cuts out for a millisecond. It happens infrequently, abut enough so that it may deter some from purchasing this speaker. I couldn’t find any other reviews that made mention of this though, so it may be a defect with the one I own, or potentially an issue with my phone that I was using to connect to it. I don’t experience this issue with my Jambox paired to the same phone, however. That aside, it’s a pretty good speaker with booming sound, and is very portable
Here we have the AYL TC80 flashlight for review, courtesy of the good folks at AYL. This model includes an adjustable beam accomplished by sliding the head of the unit to go from a wide spread to farther shooting pinpoint. Also included is a dual purpose set of LED’s in the handle. To access this, you slide the handle open.
The first mode will give you a nice work area spread of light. This works great with the magnetic base as you can secure it to something metal with the light pointing to the area you need illuminated, and you’ll light up your work area hands-free. For illustration purposed, I pointed the light down to get the photo as it can be rather blinding.
The next mode is a flashing distress beacon. This will flash a set of red LED’s on and off to alert passerby’s that you’re in need of help, or could serve as a warning to other drivers if you’re parked on the side of the road in a poorly lit area.
Overall, the build on this flashlight is very nice. It’s crafted of aluminum, coated in black, and feels nice in the hand. Changing modes is as simple as lightly depressing the power button. The biggest quirk with this one is that when you power it off, it tends to power on in a different mode than the last used mode. This is really the only thing I dislike about the flashlight.
This unit is powered by four AAA batteries. The batteries go into the handle, and do not have a sleeve that holds the batteries in like the previously reviewed AYL flashlight. This is a major improvement in that when you shake the flashlight, or when bouncing during a stroll, it doesn’t cycle through the different modes.
Overall, this is a great flashlight that feels durable, and is very practical, and I would definitely recommend it.

Today we’re going off the beaten path and will be reviewing a garden hose nozzle provided by RY Gardener. This hose nozzle comes with two quick disconnect adapters so you can easily use it with two different hoses, or you can just hang on to one as a spare. The quick disconnect operates smoothly and has a nice tight seal that doesn’t leak.
The housing of this hose nozzle looks to be durably built and is made of metal covered with a nice and grippy soft touch material. Operation is smooth and feels nice in the hand. The spray will adjust from a fine and powerful stream to a wide fan. You can also flip the lever at the top to allow for a continuous spray without having to squeeze the valve open.
Overall, this garden hose nozzle feels great and operates nicely, and with its quick disconnect, you can easily pop it on and off.
