Portable Automatic USB Rechargeable Electric Water Pump Dispenser Bottle Review

The reason why I bought this rechargeable water dispenser is not because I need it but my sister and mom need it. They live in another city and the manual water dispenser has become a pain in the neck to use. Every time they empty a gallon, that means they have to replace it with another one — and that’s heavy!

Fast forward, I first saw this automated, rechargeable water pump dispenser when I went to a friend house. I was amazed how simple it works. Although it makes weird noises, but hey, I really can’t complain of a 200-peso product. Last week, I ordered mine from vermosapoty.ph in Shopee. It wasn’t that cheap like what my friend has, but it’s still cheap. I bought it for 451.00 pesos + shipping. 

Good thing they also had this flexible adapter cause I was also looking for that like crazy. I have this CCTV bulb camera that I needed to mount but the installed bulb socket was in an inclined position, and so I definitely need this too.

The verdict? Well, I would say this product is a great help especially for seniors and on all girls family members. No more carrying and inverting of heavy-loaded water gallons. Am I recommending this? I would.

Bulk Natural Dried Flower Pressed Leaves for DIY Soap Candle Making Supplies Review

There are a ton of suppliers of dried, pressed flowers and leaves in Shopee. I’m reviewing this particular product from the seller lovoski2.ph. You may or may not find this product anymore when you come across this review as product listings are easily activated and deactivated.

Lately, I’ve been doing some crafts and thought of adding flowers and leaves into it would be a great idea. Buyers tend to buy items other than the ordinary. And so the search began and I end up buying two (2) packs from lovosk2.ph. 

Lovoski2.ph is a Chinese seller selling in Shopee. They just call their store that way, so they would know that the order came from the Philippines. I bet these people are also selling to other countries or even have multiple stores in Shopee. We wouldn’t know. 

The first order went pretty well. The usual 2 weeks of waiting before the items arrived. The plastic packing survived and didn’t break during shipping, leaves nicely pressed and flowers dried. I had a fun using them, in fact, I ordered another 3 packs which recently just arrived. 

The problem with my latest order is that some of the plastic packs were broken. Other than this, the items are beautiful, vibrant and useful. These flowers are so small which makes them perfect for resin projects.

The verdict? Definitely, worth my money. 

i-Tech Matte Vinyl Sticker Review

If you are into selling, crafts or printing cute and funny stickers, chances are you need a good vinyl sticker paper. Well, after trying a few brands, I made a conclusion that i-Tech Matte Vinyl Sticker paper is one of the best ones out there.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but neither National Bookstore or Expression stores carry the i-Tech brand. And so my only option is to buy it from Lazada. It costs 270.00 pesos and 108.00 pesos delivery fee for 20 pcs A4 sheets @ 18.00 pesos a piece. It’s a bit expensive compared to the local stickers but the difference of the finished print outs is just hard to ignore.

First off, I use a dye-based ink printer, which means smearing and smudging is real, which means a drop of water will ruin everything. With i-Tech vinyl sticker, smudging is still there but the inks dry so fast that if I touch it, it will not smear on the paper. I’ve tried it with other stickers, and even after a few hours of drying, the black prints still smudge all over the place. I’m not saying that even if I pour water into the prints it won’t smudge. I’m just saying that unlike other stickers, it dries fast and won’t smudge or blot with a dry hand.

Next, it’s a hardy sticker and by that I mean it won’t tear apart just easily. This happens to me all the time especially when I’m sticking it into glass surfaces and the sticker doesn’t align perfectly. Some stickers will not go beyond first pass, and they just tear apart if you try to remove them.

My products do not usually get wet but if they do, I could just use a photo top to make it splash proof. Photo top is like a transparent sheet that will cover the stickers to protect them from accidental splashes. I’ve heard many times on YouTube that even people who are using pigment-based ink printers that are supposedly waterproof still use photo top application to make it even more splash proof.

The verdict? Well, I’m definitely recommending this product if you’re serious about sticker printing.

Veger VP1018 10000mAh Mini Power Bank Review

My 20,000mAh Romoss powerbank is dying, and so I was on the hunt for another powerbank. I would say that Romoss is what of those brands and you can never go wrong with them. Unfortunately, there are tons of “Romoss” fake products on Lazazda, and as with other fake products, they tend to be really dirt cheap.

20,000mAh powerbank is heavy. With multiple recharging you can do with them, the heaviness seems justified. However, this time I’m looking for a powerbank that is easy to carry around since I’m buying 2 of them for myself and my niece. I settled with Verger 10,000 mAh and this review is what it is all about.

For starters, I paid 399.00 each plus shipping fee of 97 pesos. The shipment took almost 2 weeks, the package intact, and everything went smoothly. With it comes the standard android charging cable, and few paper inserts.

Unlike my Romoss, it only shows 4 small white LEDs for battery level instead of a digital display, a power button on the left side of the panel, and 2 USB charging outputs at the top of it. Front and back panels in matte finish, sturdy build but the plastic felt cheap. Fingerprint marks still visible but not that clearly because of its black color.

This is a perfect fit for my needs. Right now, I’m looking for portability rather than an enormous capacity. I have a 4,500 mAh mobile phone battery, so I guess I can get 2 full recharges using this powerbank — no more than that.

Loan Ranger Online Cash Loan Review

Like Tala which I reviewed on this post, Loan Ranger is yet another online lending app available for those who are in need of a financial help. I actually applied to Loan Ranger before I became a Tala member and had gone through of waiting ten (10) days just to get a reply. During that time, they kept asking me to send various documents including payslip, proof of income, etc. I’ve grown tired and I quit.

Fast forward and for the sake of creating this review, I resubmitted my requirements, waited for 5 days and got it approved! By the way, just to let you know, I’m also a BillEase user (here’s my review) for quite sometime now. I think both apps are own by a single company because basically they have the same dashboard that only differs in color. They are also being advertised along side with the other. 

So, aside from the required documents that I sent them, my record in BillEase would have speed up my approval this time. Had I been a bad borrower in BillEase, I doubt I’ll get a green light for Loan Ranger.

Between Loan Ranger and Tala, Loan Ranger offers the lowest monthly interest rate of 12% compared to Tala at 15%. That is enough reason for me to jump ship and use Loan Ranger solely in the future.

As with all online lending app, you need to use them sparingly. The outrageous interest rates are just hard to shallow but as I’ve said before, you gotta do what you gonna have to do.
