Dollarama Tech Finds: Homedeco Cinema Lightbox

If you are on the lookout for an LED changeable quote sign, or maybe you might want one after seeing how good this one is, check out what I found at Dollarama.

Homedeco’s cinema lightbox is pretty much identical to one that you would buy at a higher price tag. It’s much cheaper than what most places would sell these for as the expensive ones are way overpriced, in my opinion. It’s a good deal, and it looks like this one is going to be a regular Dollarama item. So chances are, if you try to find one next time you go to your local Dollarama, you might be able to bring one of these nifty signs home with you for only $4.00.

What’s included? 

85 letters, numbers and symbols printed on what they call a transfer sheet. There are 4-A’s, 2-B’s, 2-C’s, 2-D’s, 4-E’s, 2-F’s, 2-G’s, 3-H’s, 4-I’s, 2-J’s, 2-K’s, 3-L’s, 3-M’s, 3-N’s, 4-O’s, 2-P’s, 1-Q, 2-R’s, 4-S’s, 3-T’s, 4-U’s, 2-V’s, 2-W’s, 1-X, 2-Y’s, 1-Z, numbers 0-9, &, @, #, !, 2 hearts, umbrella, snowflake, and a cloud with rain. Everything you could ever want, right?! Note that you will need to split apart the transfer sheet as it comes as one piece. Also, the letters do slide off super fast and quick if you are not careful.

The light box is pretty simple and straightforward out of the box. You will need a small star screwdriver to remove the screw at the back for the batteries, but they are easy to install and they don’t pop out. It is a very solid backing.

It’s solid and sturdy. I have it hanging on my wall and it’s very secure. Hanging and removing this lightbox from the wall is very easy to do, but just be careful not to tip it over on the side too much. 

There is a switch on the side to turn it off and on, which is a really nice feature. The switch is very solid and secure when turning it off and on while it’s on the wall especially.

The light box is an extremely super cute room decor item for any room, for any occasion, special announcements, photoshoots, weddings and so much more. It looks amazing when placed anywhere, with the light on or off. It’s such a fun thing at the right price. I’ve always wanted this, or something like it, but I would never pay more than $8 for it.

This box allows you to be creative with words. I placed mine in my office, and it’s a perfect addition there. It’s a great motivational piece to inspire you each and every day if you wanted to give yourself encouraging words to live by. You could also use it to leave fun messages for your significant other or other family members or roommates. Kids in particular should get a kick out of it.

I absolutely give this light box a 100% thumbs up. Don’t forget to buy the batteries! It requires four AA’s. Have fun with your box, and remember, if it’s worth saying, it’s worth saying in light!

Stylus Review: Blackweb 2-in-1 – One Stylus, Two Functions

If you’re not already aware of the brand Blackweb, it’s trademarked by Walmart. I was searching for a decent stylus pen because I recently watched a video on smartphone radiation. After watching that video I decided it would be better to touch my phone as little as possible.  

I found this Blackweb stylus/pen 2-in-1 at Walmart for $6.98. I didn’t look up any reviews, I just bought it hoping it would do exactly what it is designed to do and if it doesn’t I still would have a classy looking pen.

What the back of the box says:

•Use as a traditional pen to write in your notebook
•Use as a touch stylus for your tablet and smartphone devices
•Rubber tip glides smoothly across touch screens
•Clip provided to attach securely to a folio for travel
•Compatible with most touch screen devices

My review: 5/10

I found that using the stylus on my iPhone 7 was not a very good experience at all. It just doesn’t seem to respond and you have to press a little harder on the screen just to get the page to move/respond. I did test it on my iPad and it seems to respond much better and it seems a lot more comfortable to use and a much better experience.

I was very interested in seeing what the reviews on this product had to hold, just to make sure it wasn’t just me. It turns out, half say it works as it should while some of the reviews experienced what I did, where the pen feels too firm and it seems to be that the stylus is too hard to properly function well. Someone even mentioned they had to pound on the screen just to get a reaction. That was exactly my problem when I tried it on my iPhone, but like I said, it was a much better experience on my iPad. The stylus does a fine job responding to the screen and it does glide smoothly like it says.

If you’re wondering if the pen works very well, it does. I love using this pen to take notes while working. It’s nice to have a pen feature for quick notes. While holding and writing with the pen it does feel a little heavier, but it is very solid and comfortable. The ink also runs very smooth with a fine tip. I wouldn’t purchase this for your smartphone, but if you’re looking to use this stylus for your tablet I think it should do the job.

And if it doesn’t then you still have a classy pen that flows nicely!

Nice try, Blackweb, you made an attempt with this one but it just didn’t turn out as expected!

Screen Cleaner Review: Bryson Screen Cleaner Kit

We use screens every day because screens are part of our everyday lives. I don’t know about you but I really can’t stand a dirty, smudgy screen. Not only is it gross, it is hard to properly see the screen. Dirty screens can affect your eye site and we don’t want that. I have used several cleaners and while some have been good, I have had bad experiences where the cleaner scratched my devices or just made them much worse.

In this blog post I am reviewing the Bryson Screen Cleaner. It covers all of your digital screen needs completely. You will never have to buy another product again, your money is safe with Bryson – this product is exactly as advertised.

Coverage: Smartphones, tablets, PC monitors, TVs, Kindle Fire, game discs and even more!

According to the box, Bryson Screen Cleaner is specially formulated to gently and effectively clean fingerprints, dust and soils on all types of screens and monitors without leaving streaks or residue on the screen. It is alcohol-free, ammonia-free and phosphate free.
100 % Streak Free | Static Free | Phosphate Free | Effective on All Types of Screens & Monitors
Non-Toxic | Non-Flammable | Non-Corrosive | Biodegradable
For everyday use at your fingertips and on the go.
Removes fingerprints, grease smudges, make-up and everyday buildup!

What’s included in the box? Trigger spray bottle (16 oz. / 473 ml) and a premium microfiber towel measuring 16 in. x 16 in. (40.64 cm x 40.64 cm). The towel has a closed-weave surface pile specifically designed for all types of screens and monitors.

My review = 9/10 – It is literally the best screen cleaner on the market!
Why do I give this product such a great review? It’s just amazing on all of my devices!
Check it out for yourself


The good: It’s effective on all of my devices – all it takes is just a little squirt on the cloth and it’s totally clean which makes this product last a long time. It does a really good job. It makes me think they are more interested in making customers happy rather than robbing their money. The bottle is the same size as a Windex bottle.


This product is SO FANTASTIC and I would be sad if this company went out of business because they really know how to make a good product.
I use it on my iPhone and iPad but I especially love using it on my TV. It gets really dusty in only a couple of days where you can see the specks of dust. After a good wipe it looks new and fresh again.


The bad: This product is very expensive, but worth every penny since you only need to use a small amount. When it comes to a good screen cleaner that promises it works, price shouldn’t be an issue. What’s more of an issue is buying products over and over again that waste your money, don’t work and/or damage your products.


Make sure you follow instructions and do not spray the screen directly, and do not use paper towel. I find cleaning my screens in circular motions help to get that deep clean. If followed correctly you will see beautiful results.


I’m so glad I found a great product that satisfies me and works every time!
I would highly recommend it and I hope it helps your eyes feel better when looking at your screens!

Dollarama Tech Finds: Silver Crest Desk Organizer

Finding the ultimate desk organizer can be challenging, but wait a minute – Dollarama sells these handy gadgets for only $4 and there’s lots of compartments! 

This thing is sweet. I’ve already fallen in love with it.

What the back of the box says: 

3 USB ports, smartphone/tablet holder fits most standard devices and features an access point for a charging cable 

Various compartment sizes for office supplies 

Multi functional and compact

Includes USB-A to USB-3.0 cable (approx. 1m) 

Thoughts upon opening the box: The plastic feels weird, but it looks great and it’s definitely solid. Seems to be durable, convenient and it’s absolutely thrilling for someone like me who likes to try and keep everything in its place. I started liking it more and more once I knew two of my devices charged properly.

Other stores sell these products, but they don’t look anything like this one and they are way more expensive. This is crazy! My desk sometimes looks like a dungeon, so this setup should organize everyone’s problems.

This product is very well priced for the quality and durability that it offers. It’s especially cheap for students, entrepeneurs, people working from home and the tidy ones that like a clean work station. 

The two black plastic pieces are probably for the size of your smartphone chargers, but since there are no instructions, I can’t be sure.  When installing, you want to pull the cord up from the bottom and wrap it where the opening is, then press down and insert. 

I ended up using my iPhone charger in the smartphone spot rather then trying to charge it with USB out.

I have successfully charged my FitBit and book light so far, but I don’t know about an iPad or laptop. I think smaller devices would work best. This does make the product misleading because on the box it shows that you can charge your laptop and tablet, but these options do not work for me. Storing your iPad at the back seems like a better idea to me. I’ve added a sticky pad, some pens, paper clips and so much more in these handy compartments.

If you are looking for a small desk organizer, this might be the one for you!

Why You Should Choose Wireless Charging For Your PS4 Controllers

It’s mid 2020 already, let’s just forget about the cables on this one – if you haven’t considered getting a wireless charger for your PlayStation 4 controller, here are some reasons why you should get one. It’s a safe, fast and easy experience for all gamers.

Wireless chargers are so much better than the standard micro USB cord. Wireless charging gives you a better charging experience right from the start. This charger eliminates cords. Do you hate having to bend down to grab the cord, or do your cords get tangled amongst other cords? Not to mention you have to carefully insert the USB micro charger into the controller the proper way or over time you will put wear and tear on the controller.

Forget it! Wireless charger = No more of that.

Here’s my reasons why this charger is a must for your gaming needs:

  1. Easy to install. It’s less work – just place it in the docking station, and the wireless charger does the rest for you. Once the charger is placed in its new home, it stays there and you no longer have to worry about bending down to grab the cord. Just forget about having to deal with those annoying cords completely! All you have to do is put it on the base and away you go. A clean setup. If you prefer not bending down to charge your controller, you should place the base up higher rather than lower.
  2. Dual charging. Most of these designs seem to charge two controllers at the same time. This is a really nice experience again, without extra cords getting in your way. It’s always handy to have two controllers charged, especially if you’re planning a long gaming session. Nobody wants to stop half way through a game to charge your controller. Another useful feature is that since the charger can be plugged into the wall with an AC adapter, you don’t have to have your console turned on to charge them.
  3. Copper technology. Most of these chargers are upgraded with copper technology rather than aluminum. Copper gives you an overall better performance as it is less resistant than aluminum. This type of technology is better for electronics.
  4. LED Charge indicator lights. Located on the front of the charger, the lights clearly tell you the charging status at a glance without having to touch the controller to find out. The LED lights are bright, but not too bright – just enough brightness to glow in the dark.
  5. Prevents damage. These chargers work very well and don’t use the top of the controller to charge; instead, it uses the Ext. port that’s on the bottom of the controller. This is something. When you charge the controller with the USB in the top port of the controller, it can wear down over time. With this wireless base you won’t have to use the cord anymore – this solves all the weird charging issues with USB micro, such as having to wiggle the cord around to get it going. These problems can be forgotten when using the dock. It also has push mechanism so you don’t have to worry about yanking the controller off the base or falling off the base.
  6. Intelligent protection chips. Charging will stop at 100 % and that’s it. If the controller is left on the base to charge for too long, it will never damage your controller, keeping it protected and safe to give the battery a longer lifetime. No more overcharging. Most of these chargers have overheat, over-currant, over-voltage and short circuit protection. This is amazing, especially for such a small price. What nice features to have – full protection and saves you money in the long run.
  7. Aesthetically pleasing. It’s nice to look at – looks amazing, awesome and it’s super stylish. I can display my controllers while charging at the same time and it looks real good. Like a little alien head or something.
  8. Sturdy. It’s durable and solid but yet small and lightweight. There are rubber feet on the bottom which prevents the base from sliding around and falling, which means less damage. It’s very well built.
  9. Price. It’s so cheap, and well worth the money. You will be suprised by the price for what you get.

Most of these wireless chargers are compatiable with PS4, PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro.

This is the one I got off Amazon:

PS4 Controller Charger, OIVO Dualshock 4 Controller USB Charging Station Dock with LED Light Indicators, Playstation 4 Charging Station for Sony Playstation4 / PS4 / PS4 Slim / PS4 Pro Controller

Finally a device that does the job like it should!

I would give this a 9/10. I haven’t had one complaint about this charger and I’ve been using it for about five months now. It’s worth every cent. Everything I listed above, this charger has accomplished it all. I’ve forgotten it on the base for a day and it’s still working as it should.

Ovio says they have 5 year support, so they must know their product is a good one and that should help make your decision about buying it worry-free. In the long run it will pay for itself.

This charger makes your gaming experience more fun and carefree since it’s such a breeze to use right out of the box.

This wireless charger is amazing for many reasons. If you’re able to – go get yourself one!
