The good folks over at BangGood sent another UPM my way for a video; a WITRN-X-MFi USB Power Monitor. With a 128*160 pixel full colour screen this is the 'biggest-screened' UPM I have in the arsenal at the moment. Ideal for my kind of videos. Special feature on this UPM is the ability to check MFi-certification for things with Lightning connectors. Another very useful feature for my videos...
Combine that with the most complete protocol analysys I have seen until now, and this might well be the most complete UPM in my collection. Check out the video below if you want to learn more about this WITRN-X-MFi.

USB Type-C Power Monitor : Chargerlab Power-Z KM001C

In today's video we'll be taking a look at a Chargerlab Power-Z KM001C USB Type-C Power Monitor I got sent by the manufacturer for this video.

I made a video on the predecessor of this UPM, the KM001, in which I bitched and moaned about the lack of a decent manual. That was back in April and I had tried to contact the manufacturer for some help with this several times with no reply from them, starting at the beginning of March.

In December the manufacturer had hired someone to take care of all overseas affairs and I was contacted with an apology and an offer to test this new KM001C, which I gladly accepted.
There's still no decent manual however, and my contact over there has already left the company, so this video will serve as kind of a makeshift manual for the time being.

➤ Haven't found any links that sell the UPM for a decent price, so you'll have to do some sleuthing for a good priced unit.

USB Type-C Power Monitor : RuiDeng TC64

I bought a RuiDeng TC64 USB Type-C Power Monitor for myself, out of curiosity.
I wasn't quite sure if it would be good for the things I do, it not being able to trigger any protocols or PD stuff itself, but it has proven its worth to me over the past few days when working on new videos.
Let's take a look at it in this video.
This Rui Deng TC64 is a welcome addition to the UPM arsenal, this being my first full Type-C UPM.
I like it a lot, even if it's not that extensive in function. It'll still come in very handy for the stuff I do in my videos. It's a basic but nice UPM, with an equally nice price so you don't have to break the bank if you want to do some basic Type-C power testing.

Deze keer eens wat anders dan de gewoonlijke powerbanks, kabeltjes of laders....
In onderstaande video pruts ik met Digoo's nieuwste 'smart' deurbel;
een Digoo SB-XYA Smart Video Doorbell Pro die BangGood me opstuurde voor deze video.
Review notes & conclusion voor wie niet de hele video wil doorkijken.
➤ Update : De app heeft sinds begin deze week (19/02) enorme kuren heeft en raakt niet altijd ingelogged. Je krijgt dan wel een notification, maar kan geen beeld bekijken omdat de UI van de app niet bereikbaar is door het login probleem/timeout.
Probleem is bij meerdere users te vinden, maar support reageert voorlopig nog niet.
Video is gedraaid op 29/01 en de deurbel heeft sinds 30/01 tot 18/02 dus wél zonder enig probleem gefunctioneerd

➤ Links, 'n coupon (gevonden door 'n kijker) en meer onzin in de description van de video.

[UPM] RuiDeng UM24C USB Power Monitor

In deze video pruts ik met een RuiDeng UM24C, 'n (in mijn ogen) betaalbare (sub $20) USB Power Monitor, met of zonder Bluetooth voor datalogging op PC (Windows) en Android device (app komt er aan) die Banggood me opstuurde ter review.
Conclusie voor wie niet de hele video wil doorkijken.

Niet zo uitgebreid als de YZXStudio UPM's die ik gebruik in m'n video's, maar voor 'n home user die wat inzicht in het laden van zijn USB-spul wil krijgen wel een fijne oplossing, denk ik.
