DIY 5V Li-ion Battery Charger


Initially started this experiment to revived old dead phone batteries which cannot be charged by conventional charger anymore, read it from somewhere so decided to give it a shot. Somehow it worked and the batteries were revived once more for use. 

So I decided to go further experimenting on live batteries that requires recharge. To my amazed I was able to charge live batteries using 220V or portable 5V Power Pack supply. 

Flexible USB 5V Lamp

This might look like a funny lamp to be used for camping but this idea came to me when I decided to have all my outdoor gadget to use only 5V supply when I bought the Goal Zero Nomad Adventure Kit. (Excellent Product). 

This USB lamp was meant to be a cheap laptop or desktop 5V lamp however after testing it out and hooked up with Goal Zero Charger soon realised it is an ideal lamp for outdoor camping where there is no power source. 

So I decided to test out against my Black Diamond Orbit Lantern and came out with surprising results. The Flexible USB 5V Lamp is much lighter, easier to pack, since it is flexible the light can be orientated to any direction needed and it is much brighter than the Black Diamond Orbit which cost 6 times more.

DIY Universal Smartphone Bike Mount

These days we have been using our smartphone as GPS and Fitness Apps  instead of our Garmin Oregon 400t. I have been thinking how can we mount our smartphone on our bikes instead of stopping and taking out from our pocket or bag to use it or rather spend extra money on a Smartphone Bike Mount. 

So finally here I found a simple solution for both of us, a DIY Universal Smartphone Bike Mount and it cost almost nothing.






Axeman Airpad

Just received this Amazing air mattress from China for review!! Ok that is not just what I wish to say. Have been using many mattresses from cheap roll foam, Z-Rest, tried NeoAir and currently owned 3 Therm-a-Rest mattresses. This Airpad is super lightweight 280gm and compact comparing what I had used before. 


Glo-Toob AAA Series

Glo-Toob has been in the market for more than a decade. Initially they made these signal lamps for the Military and Law Enforcer and now it is favourite for Divers and outdoor adventure sports. 

With the new introduction of the AAA series, it cuts down a lot of weight (34g) and size compare to earlier models. What is even better is that re-chargeable batteries can be used. Battery life span varies from 4 hours to 15 hours depending on the mode setting. There are only 3 settings high, low and flashing by twisting the waterproof battery cap. 

Cambodian Hammock

Our backpacking trip in Cambodia had experience a Nation of Hammock people. Literately everywhere we can see them hanging around. Personally we owned 2 Hennessy and a Eagle Nest Hammocks, prices for these Hammocks did not come cheap. The Eagle Nest is a Double Nest version meaning 2 person can be on the hammock at the same time and build very strong.
