I recently wrote about my Prosepra TENS Unit which has served me well, but I now have a new TENS gadget that I am using.  The Prosepra Electronic Pulse Massager worked just fine, my only gripes are the size (like a TV remote control) and the analog power control wheels. With that said, I have found a pretty cool replacement TENS unit, the IQ Massager Professional.  Read on for more...

If you have ever used a TENS machine (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) for sore muscles or rehabilitation you know how helpful they can be. My only gripe with my current TENS unit is all of the cables and the complicated menu system.

Propane patio heaters are nice when working properly. I say “working properly” because, as the price is being driven down by cheaper and cheaper units (made in China) the quality seems to be following. The metal is flimsy and igniter/gas flow issues have had my propane heater working about 60% of the time. So much for a convenient heater on cold nights. Enter the gravity fed outdoor wood pellet heater by Wood Pellet Products, the Lil Timber ($349)....

The ATHENA laser weapon can take down aircrafts, and just about anything else, in just a few quite seconds. This futuristic Star Wars like weapon was developed for the US military by Lockheed Martin. As long as there is a power source the weapon can continue to fire. In other words, it is a gun that never runs out of ammunition. The Lockheed Martin ATHENA (Advanced Test High Energy Asset) can be mounted on boats, vehicles, and more. How does it work? On the most basic level, ATHENA destroys threats with heat. It is similar to when folks...

After looking around a bit and comparing specs that were important to me (size, suction power, tool attachments, etc…) the Rigid 31693 WD1851 won the challenge and came home with me. I have had the Rigid WD1851 for a while now and thought I should update folks with my findings. Read on for the Rigid 31693 WD1851 review.

Fitness tracking is all the rage these days. I get it. It is addictive. At least it is for me. I like comparing my daily activity from day to day and week to week. But what if you perform a sport where tracking your vertical jump is important? Most fitness monitors don’t track your vertical jumps. In fact, I don’t know of any that track your vertical jump distance. Enter the VERT Jump Rate Monitor...

Improper tire pressure is not only dangerous but also reduces your mileage. While it is important to check your tire pressure it isn’t often convenient to do. FOBO Tire ($90) has a slick solution to this common problem. They have created the first low power bluetooth tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). You simply screw the four tire sensors on your valve stems, drop the in-car sensor inside your car, and install...
