With winter in full swing, Honeywell has a few solutions to keep you warm in a small personal space, as well as heading up a single room.
A unique feature for this space heater allows it to be used in two different positions, standing vertically or laying sideways horizontal. Either way, you’ll get full functionality of all three settings; high heat (1500 watts), low heat (750 watts) or just run the fan with no heat.
There’s a dial thermostat for temperature settings and overheat protections include two overheat sensors and a back-up cut off fuse.
It measures only 5.4-by-9.8-by-11.3-inches, so using it either on a floor ol as a desktop are ideal.
It stands upright with a slim space-saving design and has the same heat settings as the two position heater, along with a few additional features. You can have the fan oscillate to send the heat to a wide area, making it ideal for larger rooms.
A programable thermostat comes in handy along with a timer you can set for 1, 2, 4 or 8 hour durations. It’s also equipped with safety features against overheating along with 360-degree tip-over protection.
Both heaters have a cool touch housing exterior, which means the outside will not get hot to cause any kind of burn.
Unlike many other camera backpacks I’ve tried, the QBK is not big and bulky yet it still carries a decent amount of gear.
You can set up exactly what and where you want to carry everything since the inside compartments are completely adjustable with Velcro dividers, along with inside and outside zipper accessory compartments.
The inside pack and the dividers are a soft tricot scratch-resistant lining, allowing you to keep everything tight and padded for secure storage of the smallest accessories up to larger telephoto lenses.
The shoulder straps are padded and fully adjustable. Each side of the bag has a stretchable netted pocket,
What I really liked about this backpack is how much it stored in a low profile. The backpack isn’t big and bulky, even when I filled it to the limit. It measures 15-by-13-by-5-inches and even has a compartment for a laptop up to 17-inches.
A rain cover is included, which folds up to store inside during dry conditions.

The two-inch cubed speaker easily fits in the palm of your hand, and is dust and splash proof (IP54 rating) along with a built-in microphone for handsfree calls. A nice features is the microSD memory card slot, which lets you load music into the speaker for a true handsfree, wireless device.
Answering calls and controlling the music or volume is done with three buttons on top of the speaker. A string can be attached to the speaker to hang it from a wall, doorknob or even carry around your neck or wrist.
