A couple of weeks ago I received a Xiaomi Roidmi 3S smart car charger from GearBest to make a video.
It's a combo of an FM transmitter and a BlueTooth audio receiver, so you can pipe your music via BlueTooth over FM to your car stereo; really nice when your car stereo doesn't have a line-in. But, I'm not going to focus on that side of the product, plenty of videos and reviews that show how to use it. I want to know how this kajigger performs regarding output. It's also the first 12V 'cigarette lighter'-powered device I test.

As the title states, time for something completely different!
In this video I'm taking a look at a Xiaomi Mi Music Alarm Clock that Gearbest sent to me for this video.

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 wťl zonder enig probleem gefunctioneerd

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