[Product Review] Collapsible COB LED Lantern

We spend quite a bit of time outdoors in areas where there are no cellphone signals, so my car is always packed with the necessities in case of any breakdowns. I think it is very important to be prepared for possible situations especially when you are outdoors in nature.

Many people tend to take things for granted, and the lack of preparation can lead to dangerous situations when faced with issues. For myself, I’d rather be prepared for different situations rather than wait for it to catch me and then, in the panic, try to find the solution. While I’m not a SHTF kind of prepper, or have supplies that last me generations, most of the time, I’ll have some sort of power bars on me (partially also due to my low blood pressure that causes me to break out in cold sweat and light headedness), and my home is usually stocked with a month’s worth of food supplies.

Collapsible LED Lantern Review

Here’s a quick description of COB LED Camping Lantern from the company:

Collapsible LED Lantern

What do I think of it?

I really love that this light is really small and compact. It uses 3 AA batteries which are very easy to find. I always buy them in bulk and have some laying around to use on electronics. The quality is well made. It is very bright as well. This is very good to have in the car or at home for emergencies when there’s a blackout.

I have plenty of LED torchlights in my car and in my house, to be prepared for blackouts or car breakdowns at night. I find this a good addition on top of all that because, unlike a torchlight that shines concentrated on one area, this light gives 360 brightness. This will also be perfect when we fish at night. Previously we struggle with trying to tie our lines and hooks because torchlights are simply not enough.

Collapsible LED Lantern review
Testing the LED lantern with the lights off.

To use: Just insert the 3 AA batteries, and pull up the 2 metal handles on the side of the lantern. Don’t be fooled by the size, because this thing is really bright. I got blinded for a second the first time I used it.

I really love this product, and it is definitely going to be in the back of my boot this winter, together with the rest of my winter preparation kit.

[Product Review] Thyroid Edge

Recently I’ve read quite a bit into thyroid and the balancing of the female hormones because I’ve been feeling tired and really cold. It might have been due to winter, but I’ve always been feel much colder than the people around me. I suspect I have hormonal issues because of pills that I have taken before. I have not been prescribed by a doctor, but since this is a supplement that supports healthy thyroid function, I don’t think there is any harm with me trying it out as long as I take it in small quantities and note any changes in my body.

To learn more about thyroid issues you may read HERE.

I tried this Thyroid Edge  recently to see if it would help improve anything. It is mainly a supplement that helps us balance our thyroid to allow them to function optimally.

Thyroid Edge Review

Here’s the company’s description of the product:

  • EASIER AND FASTER than taking hard to swallow pills, capsules or tablets. Large 2 oz bottle allows you to get more bang for your buck
  • SUPERCHARGE your energy, GET YOUR Weight issues in check and MAINTAIN strong hair and nails
  • ALL NATURAL Liquid Herbal extract made with Stinging Nettle, Kelp and Bladderwrack, etc
  • ALCOHOL-FREE drops can be taken straight, eliminating the need to mix with water or juice
  • 100% SAFE w/no side effects. Plus, you are covered by Amazon’s guarantee and worry free return policy

Thyroid Edge Review

What do I think of it?

I liked that this did not have alcohol in it, which means I can take it without diluting. It smells woody and herbal. The taste of it is sweet and syrupy. There’s a slight herbal taste to it, but it comes off as a good taste. I followed the directions and took 1/4 tsp once a day and started monitoring my body of any changes. One thing I noticed is that before I took this supplement, I’ve been nodding of at my laptop and sleeping at 11pm. But today, its 1am as I am writing this review and I’m still up.

It is too short a period for me to see any major improvements, but I will continue to take this and update if I feel any changes in my body. Especially now that its winter and my limbs will mostly be feeling very cold, this will be a huge help if it works.

[Product Review] Pet+ Dog Whistle

I was really hesitant about how this would work for stopping dogs from barking. I’ve read online that people use this to train dogs on farms to use for gathering their dogs and the number of times they blew the whistle and the rhythm of it would help the dog understand each command. Basically the way they used it was to replace word commands with different pitches and tones of the whistle.

But I thought I’d give it a try since I had a dog visitor in my home that would not stop whining or barking all day. This is something I have low tolerance for since I really do enjoy my peace and quiet. While Cupid is a barker, he only barks or whines when he needs to get my attention or when there’s a stranger approaching. Other times, he is very independent and will either sleep or suntan or play with his own toys. Instead of hitting your dog or using those dog collars, which I find very inhumane, this is the best way to get your dog’s attention.

Pets+ Dog Whistle Review

Here’s a quick description of : Pets+ Dog Whistle

  • ★BEST METHOD TO TRAIN YOUR DOG AND OTHER PETS – Garanteed to stop barking and become more obedient. Train your dog to obey within a few days of training.
  • ★TEACH COMMANDS & DISCIPLINE your dog to “sit”, “stay”, “come” as well as control and stop barking with this great training tool. GREAT FOR HUNTING! 3 PIECE TOOL includes ADJUSTABLE SCREW that helps adjust the sound frequency to one that your pet best responds to. LOCK NUT helps secure the frequency and pitch sound.
  • ★COMPACT & LIGHTWEIGHT: Small convenient design for best portability. Convieniently carry your whistle anywhere you take you dog.
  • ★PETS+ QUALITY BRANDED LANYARD included for easy carry and fast access. Stylish branded lanyard with double buckles is great for your active dog training sessions.
  • ★GREAT GIFT for all pet lovers and trainers. See the descriptions below for a few tips to help you get started.

What do I think of it?

I have a chihuahua that follows every word command I give, but can not stop barking when strangers are in the house. For these 2 weeks, I also have a friend’s Toy Poodle, that is very whiny and barks for everything. Literally non stop whining and barking and I was trying to potty train him. This whistle has been a god send because I’ve tried word commands, I’ve tried almost everything, including shouting out of exhaustion because I couldn’t sleep at night.

After getting the whistle, I blew the whistle every time he whined or barked. And said, “Stop.” or “No”. I praised him when he stopped. Believe it or not, but in 2 days, the barking and whining stopped, unless he needed something, or wanted to potty. My house is so much more peaceful and I can enjoy the silence and rest, finally. Thanks to this whistle. I basically use this to stop chaos and snap their attention back to me so that I can give them their word commands.

I love the convenience of the lanyard that I can hang around my neck because I have it wherever I go, and I can use it right in time when I want to correct them.

*Although I received this product heavily discounted/free for review purposes, the above mentioned events really did happen and I tried to explain in my most honest and unbiased way.

[Product Review] Talon Bluetooth Headset

This surprised me! I’ve already reviewed some other Bluetooth earbuds before but the sound quality from this baby surpasses all that! This made vacuuming the house more fun! I was playing dance music and getting my groove on. Housework just got so much easier to get done. :)

Most of you would have already known by now, that I love blasting music when I’m working on my household chores. I mostly get Bluetooth headsets or Bluetooth earbuds to help with that because I can’t have any wires around me when I’m elbows deep in cleaning. I can’t workout without music as well. The rhythm and the beats are the fuel to push myself harder, to throw my frustrations on the ground.

Talon Firebird Noise cancelling Bluetooth Earbuds

What I loved about this product:
– Light weight. When you’re wearing something in your ears for long hours, the weight does become an issue.
– Fits well. It comes with a plethora of additional sizing that helps adjust the size of the ear buds to fit your ears comfortably.
– Sound quality. The sound quality is really good. I’ve tried listening to different genres of music, and all of them played well.

What I didn’t like:
– The buttons. They are really small and are on the side of the ear buds. It does take sometime for me to find it. I usually end up being frustrated and pluck it out of my ears to hit the buttons.
– Position of the mic. The mic is on the earbuds itself. With other headsets i am able to position the mic closer to my mouth when in noisy surroundings. But with this, there is nothing I can do to help the other party hear me clearly.

Talon Firebird Noise Cancelling Earbuds review

Who is this best for:
It depends on what your priority is. If you’re looking for an affordable earbuds with good quality music, this is the one for you. I would also say that this is great for exercising because of the additional support that helps hold it in place. If you intend to use this mostly for talking, this might not be the one for you.

[Product Review] Comenzar Instant Read Thermometer

If you cook/bake often, this tool is a must have in every home. Thermometers are a great way to check whether your food is cooked to safe to eat temperatures. I own an analog thermometer myself which I use very regularly. The thing with analog faces is the reading is not always accurate. For this Comenzar thermometer, it is stated that the accuracy is up to 1 to 2 degrees, and the numbers appear on the screen, which makes it almost idiot-proof.

Kitchen thermometer

Here’s a quick description of it from the company:

  • Ultra fast: Comezar Instant read thermometer with 4-7 second digital readout, oF/oC button.
  • Special Design: Magnet-Easy Storage on Refrigerators ; Lanyard-Convenient Portability.
  • Energy saving: Comenzar Digial Thermometer with function of auto-shut off,It can saving battery life.
  • Multi-purpose: Comenzar Meat thermometer with folding tapered probe ,Perfect Easy to use for :Kitchen ,Outdoor Cooking,BBQ ,liquid,Food, Meat,Poultry,Candy,Coffee,Milk,Baby`s formula and Bath water temperature
  • “Hold”Function: When using Comenzar indoor outdoor thermometer,Before withdrawing the probe from food ,press “hold” button to hold temperature reading until be pressed again .
  • Measurement Range: -4~292℉(-20~200℃),Display resolution: 0.1°C,Large LCD display,easy to read digits

What I think of it?

This thermometer is handy and it has a safety feature where you can fold the probe to hide away the sharp points. This keeps the tool small and easy to keep. It operates on a single AAA battery. I love that it has a chart on the side of the handle for quick reference on what temperatures are needed to ensure that your food is safe to eat. I used to have to google that on my phone and it is quite a hassle sometimes when you have dirty hands from prepping your foods. The temperatures are listed in both celsius and fahrenheit which is convenient for whichever metric system you are accustomed to.

Another thing I liked about this thermometer is that is has a magnet on the body of the thermometer, which is great for sticking on the fridge for easy access everyday when I cook. This means, I no longer have to dig through my drawers and cabinet full of cooking utensils to find it. Then again, its brightly colored so it shouldn’t take long to find too. :)

[Product Review] Sprouts Cold Remedy

As luck would have it, winter is here, and so is the cold and cough season. Almost everyone around me seems to be feeling under the weather. As for me, I’ve caught the sneezes, that have not extended into a flu yet, but I’m trying everything I can to prevent that.
I love herbal remedies because instead of suppressing your symptoms, they help to heal your body inside out. I’ve been trying to build a natural medicine cabinet and this is a great addition to it. Over the last 5 to 6 years, I have been researching and building up on creating a natural home environment. Most of the products in my home are eco-friendly and I go organic whenever I can. For coughs, flu and cold, I usually rely on Elderberry syrups and Chinese herbal drinks as well as Vitamin C to help relieve the symptoms and enhance recovery.

Sprouts Cold Remedy Review

I’m so happy with this recent addition to my medicine cabinet. This is something new to me, so big thanks to Sprouts for providing me this Sprouts Cold Remedy  for review purposes.

Here’s a quick description from the company:

  • Sprouts Cold remedy is a unique blend of natural herbs to relieve cold symptoms
  • Relieves heavy Congestion, cough. Extremely effective for a Sore Throat
  • It stimulates healing in a safe and speedy manner.
  • Made in a GMP Certified facility Kof k Kosher Certified
  • 2 oz liquid bottle with dropper 59 servings per bottle amount per serving 1ml (25 drops) in 2 oz of water

Sprouts Cold Remedy listed the following as ingredients:
– Echinacea purpurea Herb, Red Root, Green Tea Leaf, Elderberry fruit, Thyme herb, Red Clover Herb, Myrrh Gum, Mullein Leaf, Ginger Root.
It also contains vegetable glycerin and deionized water.

2015-12-01 15.26.07

What I think of it?

It smelled herbal but just a slight tinge. The smell reminds me of chinese herbal medicine, but not as strong. The instructions were simple, to dilute 25 drops into a cup of water. I used filtered water. I could barely taste the herbal supplement! I tried taking a drop of it directly on my tongue, and it tasted sort of sweet. It actually tasted very good, reminded me of herbal lozenges. I really liked that it was so simple to use, and the taste was easy to take. I usually have to boil chinese herbal infusions to get over my colds and cough, so this is a nice change, that tastes good, and so easy to use since they have infused and concentrated the herbs into a bottle, all you have to do is dilute it and drink up.

This bottle is good for 59 servings, which is plenty. I take this in combination with Vit C, lots of water, and sleep to help my body recover when feeling under the weather. It worked for me this week. :)

[Product Review] THZY 8GB Digital Rechargeable USB Audio Voice Recorder

I used to lug around a huge bag wherever I go, to bring my iPad and my notebooks to scribble my thoughts through the day. But lately as technology has been improving, and I started taking notes on my mobile instead. I used apps with checklists to help manage my grocery lists whereby I categorize them into different supermarkets that I shop at. The thing is when it comes to ideas or things that require some notes, it is not ideal to type into the mobile as it can be quite difficult to type an entire paragraph with the phone’s keyboard.

When we changed our mobiles to Samsung Galaxy S6, I started recording my thoughts using the voice recorder app that came with the phone. But…. after all the recording and replaying my phone’s battery started draining too quickly. I was looking for an external voice recorder but the costs held me back. I gave up on that and got myself a powerbank instead to keep my phone’s battery charged.

When I saw the THZY 8GB Digital Rechargeable USB Audio Voice Recorder, I knew I had to try it.

2015-11-24 13.32.25

Here’s a quick overview of the product from the company:

  • Voice recorder/Hidden recording + U disk function/8 GB Memory
  • Easy to use On/Off switch; just plug-and-play, no drive needed
  • Great for classes, lectures, meetings, interviews and the like
  • Mini portable size design brings you much more convenience
  • Low power consumption, lasts up to 15 hours on a single charge

What do I think of it?

I’m really surprised that there is actually such a device that can record. I thought that you’d need to plug into your laptop to record. But no, this device works on its own. You can clip it on your keychain and record any audio, lectures, meetings on the go. It looks exactly like a thumbdrive and it works like one. Simple plug and play.

To record: You have to move the switch to ON and wait for the light to turn blue (about 5 seconds) and it will record. I tried recording my voice and when I replayed it, I could hear myself quite clearly. The only downside was that it took in the buzz from the surrounding so there was a little interference in the background.

2015-11-24 13.31.25

This device has 8gb of memory and records in WAV files, which means you can record a rough equivalent of 24 hours and 52 mins of audio. This is excellent for recording lectures or meetings to convert into minutes or notes later on, but I would NOT use it for professional usage such as podcasts or song recordings.

Personally, I hang it on my keys to record stuff on the go. I don’t always have a notebook with me, so this is perfect for me to record ideas and thoughts to be used for something else later. When I get home all I have to do is listen and take notes & reminders from the files. I used to do the same thing on my mobile phone, but it uses my phone’s battery. My phone is also not ideal for recording long audio since the space is limited.

A thing to note though, it comes in WAV files, so you might have to check that your computer can play that format, or you may have to get a converter software to help you with that. For this price and size, I would say this is great to have for those of us who talk faster than we write, and have many thoughts through the day that you would like to record and expand on later. This is perfect for: Businessmen, entrepreneurs, travelers, bloggers who are always on the go, and have to transfer files between devices.

[Product Review] PHEENX Horsey Dog Toy with Crinkly Tail

I always say Cupid is like a baby because he really behaves and reacts like one! Just like how parents often buy their kids toys or their favorite snacks when they are out shopping, We too, buy Cupid toys and treats when we go out and pass by pet shops. He loves it when we come home with surprises for him. As you can already tell, he’s a very special little puppy, and he is very dear to us.

I received this PHEENX Horsey Dog Toy with Crinkly Tail for review, and when I first unboxed it, I literally smacked my head. Cupid is a chihuahua, and at 5lbs (2.3kg), this toy probably didn’t look like THE toy for him. The photo below shows the actual size in comparison with my arm. It is BIG! I thought it was great for bigger dogs, but Cupid surprised me on this one. 71l1TM7MCcL._SL1500_

Here’s a quick description from the company:

  • DOGS NEED TO PLAY. For dogs, play is important. INTERACTIVE play can strengthen the bond between you and your pet. Introduce your dog to the HORSEY pet toy.
  • Our HORSEY toy is made of fleece, PLUSH fabric; retains DOG’S SCENT for EXTENDED PLAY; this toy has CRINKLY TAIL; great for FETCH. Other dogs just like to carry our soft toys around and SNUGGLE.
  • Keep your dog’s mind STIMULATED, discourage problem behavior and PROMOTE DENTAL HEALTH with dog toys. Choose a toy that matches your dog’s PERSONALITY and chewing habits.
  • Keeps dogs OCCUPIED for hours; HORSEY has a crinkly tail that all dogs enjoy; great for FETCH and TUG.
  • Many dogs are surprisingly finicky about the size, shape, or feel of the toys they’ll play with. If your dog doesn’t play with the toy you give him, try a different style toy. Be patient and don’t give up – you’ll find the toy type your pet loves to play with.

PHEENX Horsey Dog Toy with Crinkly Tail

What do I think of it?

There isn’t a squeaker in this toy, but the toy has some crinkly material inside that gets Cupid’s attention. As I was unboxing it, the toy was rubbing against the box and Cupid was going crazy in excitement and waiting at my foot to see what was inside.

This toy is very well designed! The designers understand dog’s behavior very well. When I first got it, I thought it was too big for my chihuahua and he wouldn’t enjoy it. I kept it in his toy box and continued with my daily routines. Later that day, I found him dragging this toy around, its too big for him to bite the whole thing. He loves the furry part at the bottom and chews and jumps around that. He keeps playing with the toy like a friend. I thought of giving it to my friends with bigger dogs, but it seems now my chihuahua can’t get by without it… He even dragged it to the window to suntan with him. The quality is very well made! I’m sure this toy can last through many chews and it will stay tough and strong. Also it is long, it will make a good tug-of-war toy with the bigger pups.

[Product Review] Midori Spring Organic Ceremonial Matcha Powder – Gold Class


Maybe this came from my Asian background or maybe it started from our honeymoon to Korea. I learnt about matcha when we went to Korea for our honeymoon back in 2009. Back then I bought 4 bottles of matcha powder and used them mostly for baking because I was trying to make matcha cakes and spring rolls. Those were just simple off the shelves matcha that I got from the supermarkets in Korea, so that quality wouldn’t be something that can be compared to this.

On our trip to Japan earlier this year, I saw how the Japanese took pride in their food and what they ate. The Japanese have some of the best quality food in the world. If you are into healthy delicacies, Japan is THE place to be. It was like a dream for the lactose intolerant me. Every coffee shop has Coffee made with soy milk. WHAT?! That was insane because they never had that in Singapore. I was deprived for years in Singapore, and Japan spoiled me to bits. They had entire streets of soy products. I ate soy donuts and soy ice cream. It was a freaking DREAM for me. That is a whole blog post for another day, but needless to say, I miss Japan. There’s so much food I ate there that I really want to remake at home now. #HANGRY

Why Ceremonial grade Matcha powder?

Like many food that has different grading systems, apparently Matcha has its own system as well. I just learnt about this when I received this powder. Like I said before, I always try to research into everything I can before I introduce them on my blog because I want to make sure that it is what it claims to be, and it has to be made of quality. I hate wasting my money on things that fail on what they say they are, so trust me, I’ll never want you to spend a cent on things I don’t agree with.

Ceremonial grade is like the finest quality matcha that you can find and it definitely has higher purity compared to the common culinary grade matcha that you see everywhere. You can read more about this Midori Spring Ceremonial Gold Class Organic Matcha on their website HERE, complete with the tasting notes and the process that they go through to make it. I never knew there is so much to learn about matcha. So much like wine, I wonder if there are actually any matcha experts out there. 😉

Midori Spring Matcha Organic Ceremonial Green Tea Powder

Here’s a description from Amazon about this matcha powder:

Midori Spring’s Ceremonial Gold Matcha is rich, smooth and creamy with a hint of sweetness when brewed traditionally. This premium product is Ceremonial Grade and is Organic (USDA, JAS), Vegan and Kosher (OU) Certified. We only select the best raw material from our tea gardens mostly from Aichi and Kagoshima in Japan and maintain the highest standards in production. Our Matcha has a fresh, sweet, green-vegetable-like aroma. The colour is a vibrant emerald green. Only high quality Ceremonial Grade Matcha encompass these features. You can enjoy Midori Spring’s Ceremonial Gold Matcha the traditional way by brewing or you can create your own Matcha inspired recipe. Whichever style you choose to have your Matcha, you can experience the many health benefits it has to offer since Matcha is a Superfood. There are many immediate and long term health benefits when consuming Matcha, which include: increase in energy without the jitters, reduce stress and improve mental alertness, improve metabolism and help with weight loss, boost immune system and reduce inflammation and help the body cleanse of harmful elements. Give back to your health and embrace the power of Matcha.

IngredientsOrganic and Kosher Certified 100% Pure Matcha Green Tea Powder. Harvested from the finest tea gardens in Japan. Certified, tested, and tasted by 9th Degree Tea Masters to make sure each batch is perfection.

DirectionsTraditional Method- What you need: Matcha Bowl (Chawan), Matcha Whisk (Chasen), Bamboo Scoop (Chashaku), Small Sifter 1. Warm up matcha bowl and bamboo whisk. Place whisk in bowl and fill ¹/3 of bowl with hot water. Let it sit for 1 minute, discard water. Dry bowl with clean cloth or paper towel. 2. With the bamboo scoop place 2 scoops of Midori Spring Matcha through a small sifter into bowl to avoid clumping. 3. Pour 60mL/2oz of hot water (72-76°c, 162-169°f) into bowl and whisk briskly in a “W” motion until fine foam appears. The whisk should not scratch the bottom of the bowl. 4. Sip and Enjoy!

What do I think of this Midori Spring Organic Ceremonial Matcha Powder ?

This is seriously good quality stuff. I just made a soy matcha latte with the Midori Spring Matcha Gold Class… and boy did I fall in love with it. I made it using the Nespresso Aerocino and it came out just bubbly and creamy. They described this as rich, smooth and creamy and it was exactly how the latte came out.

Making Matcha latte

All I used was simply just 60 ml of unsweetened organic soy milk (i’m lactose intolerant, you can use whole milk or coconut milk for this as well.), together with the recommended 1/2 tsp of matcha powder. The recipe they provided on the tin is actually to mix this with water only, presumably to taste the quality of the powder. I didn’t even add sugar and it came out perfect. Almost the quality of what you would get from a restaurant.

I love products that only have 1 ingredient. For this, its 100% Pure Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder. It is vegan, GMO Free, Gluten free, and USDA certified organic. I know the pureness of it and I can change it up to the way I want it to taste. I really love this product and can’t wait to make more things out of it. I saw another reviewer shared a recipe to make cakes out of this.. Gotta try that!

Would I recommend this? YES!! I might even get more for myself because the matcha latte was creamy, delicious, perfection in a cup. The best part? It only took me about 30 seconds to do. I might just wanna add this to my regular beverages just to get the benefits of drinking matcha! :)

This is great for those of you who are also trying to quit coffee, many people have used this to swap and it worked out well for them… For me? This will be an addition on top of my coffee. Love my caffeine too much! 😉

[Product Review] Tire Pressure Gauge

Drivers or car enthusiasts! Listen up! Almost everyone that owns a car have one device for checking the tire pressure. Checking the tire pressure was probably one of first things I learnt ( and maybe the only thing) regarding how to check that the car was in drive- able condition. I’m not really car smart since I don’t drive often. The husband handles most of the “technical” aspects of the car. I use the car only when I need to get my groceries. Its funny how when you have your own home to chill, you become a “homebody”, if you know what I mean. 😉

Why is tire pressure so important? Here’s a quick explanation from TireBuyer:

Proper air pressure in a tire helps to distribute the weight of a vehicle evenly across the tire’s tread pattern, so the tire (and the vehicle) is at its most stable. When a tire is under-inflated or over-inflated, it loses stability, negatively affecting handling, cornering, and stopping. Eventually the tire will also start to wear unevenly. Under-inflated tires tend to show wear on the outside edges of the tread, while over-inflated tires show wear down the middle of the tread. Either way, incorrect inflation pressure = uneven wear = tires that wear out faster = less $$ in your pocket. Nobody wants that.

Tires are not cheap so it is important to watch out for them since they are one of the most important components in the car that help maintain YOUR safety.

We used to own those tire pressure gauges (picture below) whereby they pop out to reveal the pressure your tire has at the moment. The problem with these, is that they are not accurate, and tend to have other conditions that may lead to inaccurate reading. Wind might cause the tube to shift. The numbers for the reading itself are all pretty small, making it hard to read accurately also. We had to buy a few of these previously because we kept losing parts of it. The good thing is, they are cheap and you can almost find them in any Walmart or auto stores.

This is the Tire Pressure Gauge Pro Edition – By Federico’s Car Care that I received. It was definitely a surprise because I wasn’t expecting something like a tire gauge to be so well made.

This gauge is high quality and well designed. I gave it to the husband since he is the one that handles the “car stuff”. He LOVED it! Even he was surprised that this ting is super tough and durable. He couldn’t wait to test it out. Even though we just had our car serviced, he tested the tires again just so that he could see this gauge at work. hahaha

What we liked about this gauge:
It uses an analog dial face. So it is not affected by external conditions. If you’ve used those pop out gauges, you will know that the accuracy of it is bad. For this analog dial, it is simple and easy to read. Do not be fooled by the picture, this item is quite big, the dial face is just the right size where I didn’t have to squint to read it. It is made to last. We now have this at the back of our SUV to test our car since our in-car gauge is faulty. Having this as a backup and knowing that it works accurately has been a relief. We never have to worry about it being damaged or losing any parts of it.

Based on my opinion of it above, I would definitely recommend this if you are looking for a tire gauge. The design of the “tire” around the gauge is just too cute… :)
