I feel like a shit ton of people don't realize how good google cardboard really is, it works amazingly well and you can buy it on Amazon for about 5$, I recommend a head strap though, can get them for less then a dollar and really help the experience. There are ways for you to even play pc games with it, look up trinus. There's even porn for it. Works with iphones as well. Check out /r/googlecardboard
Head strap(0.71$): http://www.gearbest.com/mount-holder/pp_168951.html
Edit: A lot of people are asking which I own, it's this one but I only got it because i was lazy and wanted one with a headstrap included, there are cheaper options. This one also was advertised as larger, and I have a note4 I wanted to fit in it. It works with my note4, haven't tried any other. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/3056511089?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00
No printers are cheap. Anet A8
I bought one, built it in about 8 hours from watching a video, there is an incredible support group on FB. The cost to print that part was probably .05 cents, if that.
I love that 3d printer, also by building it you learn about it and how to fix it. I almost considered a $2500 Lulzbot, I am glad I didn't.
I own a Xiaomi Yi (2 actually) that I use for biking. It's a decent action camera, but unlike a dedicated dash cam it won't start recording once your car is started, and also doesn't have a gps. In addition the two colors available (green and white) aren't discreet, although I'd imagine you can get a case to help with that. If you want an action camera that also works as a dash cam, it will do a fine job, but if you want a dedicated dash cam you can do better for the same price.
You nailed exactly how I feel about this. I wish people would at least walk and run more. You can get decent running shoes for $20-$30 on sale if you don't mind them being a really weird color. And some step trackers run as low as $13.99.
Oh well. But hey, the older we get, the better we're going to look in comparison to our peers. So that'll be fun, I guess.
Finally an explanation that makes sense. I have wondered for a while why all these Chinese companies that make great cheap phones that you can buy on GearBest never support US frequencies. At that price point and with those specs, if they did, just by word of mouth the US market would be flooded and the lawsuits would start.
Here is an example of said phones, comparable to an iPhone 6 Plus, $89
HP Stream 7 with 1GB RAM running Skyrim , fps is terrible but it runs .
You can get similar tablet for 80$ with 2GB RAM from China and get yourself a gamepad similar to this one .
Xiaomi Piston 3 + Xiaomi 10Ah power bank
$12 and $11 respectively off allbuy
Site looks sketchy and takes 2 weeks to arrive, but super cheap and I validated the devices with xiaomi to check that they are legit, and they are.
They also sell most other xiaomi products such as the Mi Band ($15) and the xiaomi phones.
Hope this helped :)
Edit: Thought I'd add where to buy:
Allbuy, Gearbest and Tinydeal are the ones that all have legitimate products. Check all 3 to see which one has the cheapest price at the time, as they each fluctuate.
Uses a Rockchip SOC. Lags pretty badly on God of War emulation when I can run it pretty smoothly on the Portable.
It would appear the build quality on this thing is pretty poor. Not a good tradeoff if this something being designed to shove into a pocket.
Even in the store page the device looks cheap. The buttons don't even lay flat in the preview pic:
Huh, I don't know if it's just the pictures they used, but that tiny drone looks a hell of a lot like this one, which can already be purchased...
edit: Going from the company's page, looks like its exactly the same thing, but without the "FX-10" logo on it.
This is the lamest attempt at a scam I have ever seen. This "tablet" he has "built" is running android 4.2 (5.0 comes out in the next week or so). The specs on this tablet could barely run a SNES emulator. It DOESN'T even have the specs he says it does, and the specs he says that it has are STILL old news. You can buy the tablets for $115! He wants 300! Hahahhaha. Man if Ubisoft sees this they are going to have a crudely drawn space cow man.

Xiaomi Redmi 4X - Global Edition (mit lte20)
Bei Gearbest per "germany express" bestellen, dann musst du auch nicht zum zoll.
Alternativ bei Honorbuy aus EU Lager schicken lassen, dann muss es auch nicht durch den Zoll, und geht schneller als gearbest, allerdings sind die versandkosten ziemlich hoch (ca. 30 euro) weil die mit dhl express verschicken. Dafür geht's auch ratzfatz.
For everyone who wants an iPhone looking android phone with 6000 mAh;
BLF 348 (unbranded version), it's 1xAAA, single mode, tail switch, stainless steel, plus Nichia high CRI for excellent color rendering. The only annoying thing - it's a REVERSE switch. The light turns on AFTER you click it, so no momentary on.
This is why I haven't bought a quad that cost more than 50. I've crashed my DM007 at least a dozen times and this POS just keeps going. Of course it doesn't have all the awesome features that a DJI has.
Hope your repair isn't too costly OP. Best of luck with future flights!

>Although kind of cool that it gives you 4GB of storage to listen to music without being connected to a phone
Yeah, that's cool, but I got around that by using the 4gb on my Android Wear and a cheap pair of bluetooth headphones.
If those work for you, then have at it. However, there are better options for not much more money.
The tube is rechargeable, and offers variable brightness so you can control brightness/battery life. The Convoy will require a charger and a 18650 battery, which will tack on another $15 or so, but Gearbest frequently runs sales, so you can probably get the whole package for $25 or less. That flashlight will offer a smaller form factor (easier to slip into a pants pocket or just take less room in a bag), less weight, and an enormously brighter beam with a longer runtime. If you're seriously concerned about emergencies during your commute in the subway (a valid concern), you may want to consider upgrading your apparatus. That being said, any light is better than no light, so carry whatever works for you.
Xiaomi Hybrid is by far the best in ear headphone for the price, so I just bought those. Plus they are so cheap that if they ever break I can just buy a new pair.
It has a metal construction, braided cables, volume and mute buttons, and a microphone. And they sound great. I got mine from this website: http://www.gearbest.com/earphones/pp_261864.html?wid=21 It shipped from Hong Kong and I received it in just over a week with standard shipping.
> $16 for a quality VR headset
That's a stretch seeing how no one has even tried one. If they are giving them away for free they are not gonna be "quality"
16 bucks is the normal price for a cheapy Chinese VR headset http://www.gearbest.com/vr-headset-_gear/
Absolute false advertising.
Gearbest is selling the Klarus G30 for just over $50, and it really is 2450 lumens. You'll need another ~$30 worth of batteries though (I would recommend protected cells for this light). The Supfire M6 is also somewhere around that, especially if you go for the mod 1 option, which replaces some of the electronics to deliver more power.
Depends on your budget, but my initial thought is a floody headlamp such as the Skilhunt H03 (for which there is often a coupon around) which has the added bonus of freeing up your hands.
http://www.gearbest.com/led-flashlights/pp_184880.html - to be fair some of the smallest/smaller lights can get expensive - though this will blow away that light in light output and it's not fair comparing a light made for enthusiasts to a normal regular one.
I think this is it.
Thread that has a coupon that may or may not work with it.
If you have a semi-recent smartphone, you can probably do it right from there. Otherwise you'd be looking at something like the Xiaomi Yi Action Cam.
While they both have their own unique advantages, electric powered rc vehicles are favored by many, and more and more so today with tremendous advancements in brushless motor technology and battery energy density. Electric machines at their best are faster.
Mode memory is pretty common in the flashlight world, you almost have to go out of your way to find a light without it. Which I guess would mean most lights at a retail location...
But you can get a light with mode memory for less than $60. The Convoy S2+ is about $18, and the Skilhunt H03 retails for $52, but can often be had for less than $35 with a coupon.
These two lights will blow just about any other light their size out of the water, for most people. At least until you start messing with triples and FET builds.
See also r/flashlight.
No catch. The on-time memory UI is meh, and the linear driver isn't the most efficient, especially on lower modes, but it does what it says on the tin.
A step up would be the Eagle Eye X5R (note: Gearbest link is not an endorsemest of Gearbest), which has a separate mode switch, USB charging, more efficient driver and option of XM-L2 or XP-L HI. The 3A and 3C tints are nice and neutral. No catch here either - it's probably not as well made as premium brands, but it, too does what it says on the tin.
Wow, huh. Apparently this is a real thing. I had never seen a selfie stick that connected through a headphone jack. It appears that it simulates a volume button press which allows the camera to take pictures (another feature I had no idea existed, but is apparently in all modern android and iphones).
The user was probably doing something absurd and didn't have their camera app open and was expecting it to take pictures still or trying to use a device that either didn't support this functionality, or didn't have it enabled.
The G1W/C/H would be the most affordable.
Gearbest is having a sale, the item usually costs $55-60, but with the coupon it's only $40, search on google for the review, or search G1W on youtube to see the good quality. reports from slickdeal users say it is legit.
For those who don't have some, you can get them for $5.39 right now without the box and engraving. Excellent deal.
If you like the tint, I would also recommend checking out the Astrolux A01. Same 90+ CRI but with a warmer/rosier tint. Very nice.
Seems to be for car door locks. I'm not really sure how any of these things work, but I'm guessing it helps hold that little flap open while you poke the other bits in the slot?
Buy an over the air antenna to see if you can receive some channels. This is hit or miss depending where you live.

As side from the 20MP shooter nothing stands out, if Sony are moving from the 13MP to 20MP as they have done with their phones and this is a staggered release then that's not surprising
I mean if the Helio CPU is replacing their octocore and mediatek wants to make it big in the market with the huge flop of the 810 they might 'undercut' slightly to encourage mass market appeal.
Mediatek Octo, 3GB RAM, 13MP shooter are easy to find for $200, and those aim to sell fewer units which raise prices.
I mean $210 for a similar sort of spec level.
If you're going to get a 348 then you definitely want the one with the Nichia 219B emitter. It's a high CRI emitter which does a wonderful job of rendering colours, and the BLF 348 is probably the cheapest light you'll find that contains one.
I'll second the recommendation on the Skilhunt H03, its a whole lot of light for the sub $30 you pay with the coupon... PM /u/zeroair if you're interested.
Here is the description from that page, not a big confidence booster.
Going with "brightest" as meaning "lots of lumens":
There is the Convoy L6: 3800 lumens, using the XHP70 led, official store or gearbest. (note this takes 26650s, using 18650s in it will require adaptors)
Could cost slightly less the $80 (including some decent 26650 keeppower batteries) assuming you have a charger.
There are also some MT-G2 based lights (like the EC4SW) that have a lot of output and should keep you just under $100.
The A118C is the one I got and I purchased it on that somewhat-shady looking GearBest website. Other people have ordered from GearBest so it is legitimate. It shipped from China and the instructions were in questionable english, however it works great. The price seems to vary between $45 and $55.
Apparently batteries and the blazing hot sun are a bad combo, so the A118C uses a capacitor which is why it's a popular choice.
/r/dashcam is the subreddit for actual dashcams while /r/roamcam is the subreddit for posting videos.
This is why you should have a dashcam! Mostly to film planes driving down the road and meteors, but occasionally they can also be useful to prove that a crash wasn't your fault.
I've got this one: http://www.gearbest.com/car-dvr/pp_24214.html
I'll elaborate a bit more on this exceptional recommendation.
Skilhunt H03 NW Bright, floody, right angle light that can be used as a headlamp. It's extremely light and puts out 8 levels of brightness. Has a pocket clip and magnetic tail cap for all your mountable desires.
PM /u/zeroair for, what he says, is the best coupon for this light so far. I'm sure it's a terrific deal. Also, use the link he provides, I don't have his referral link unfortunately.
Charger: Xtar VC2 Plus.
I've also included a battery and charger recommendation. So you don't have to hunt for the right battery or charger if needed.
Esiste un aggeggino che si infila nell'accendisigari e si collega via bluetooth al telefono... il telefono streama l'audio e l'aggeggino lo trasforma in segnale radio che viene captato dall'autoradio come se fosse un canale... la qualità non è il massimo, ma è una soluzione fattibile...
Consider the BLF-348, a nice AAA penlight.
It's got an led with an amazing tint and color rendition. The tint is warmer than the ugly cool white of most other led lights, and its color rendition means that colors look really natural. The led this light uses loses some output to look this pretty, but I think it's completely worth it.
It should put out around 45 lumens for an hour with a reputable AAA rechargeable, but I don't know how it'll behave with a disposable alkaline. It has a single mode so it's less flexible but less confusing.
I recommend not choosing the gift box. It's just a crappy paper box from what I've heard.
There's a coupon code at the BudgetLightForum post that should bring down the price to seven or eight bucks.
Gearbest has poor customer service, but from what I seen, people usually have a good experience with them with inexpensive stuff. And know that shipping from China is free but takes ages.
http://www.foursevens.com/products/P2-AE (can be configured with a single mode)
Or the Nitecore MT06 are both good options.
Alternatively if you want Single AA, you could do much worse than this GB from BLF, which also has a nice and simple single mode only!
or you could get an L3 L08
Fascinating writeup. I'm almost inclined now to make something with this, just due to the extremely minimal size, and I assume power usage too, as well as the low-cost. I'd be glad to share files while sitting on the bus :P
Edit: It's available cheapest on BangGood. Also available on GearBest and DX.
I also came across something that looked very similar to it, Eaget. I'll probably just get a ZSun, since the article was written for it.
I have no idea how to check that, but if you want an excellent pair of headphones for cheap check these out: http://www.gearbest.com/earphones/pp_261864.html
I just picked up a pair. Fantastic so far.
The torch is a lucky sun d80 which I got from gearbest for £15.
It's a great torch, takes a single 18650 and is a great thrower
Olight SR Mini Intimidator
While it's not a new light, it's definitely a nice light and a bright light too. Pure flood is very nice to have also and even though the price is low now, it was no cheap light when it first came out.
Anything from Convoy you can get from under 20 will be good. There are always deals available from gearbest and bangood.
Take a look for the s2+ and the c8. Specially the clear/silver c8, it has a more advanced UI. Gearbest has a deal on it right now. I would pick the silver / u6-3a version.
The blf-348 is always a popular choice for low-cost high cri. It looks classy as they come, too.
Wowtac (New name for atactical) a1 or a2 are good choices for 20 bucks. They come with a low capacity, usb rechargeable 18650 battery.
Works with GoPro mounts. The only annoying thing is that you can only change the settings from their app. Can't do it on the camera itself.
A Skilhunt H03 can do 160 lumens for 11 hours, and that isn't even the brightest mode. /u/zeroair used to have a discount code for it. I'm not sure if he does any more.
You'll also need at least one battery, at a charger.
The Piston 3's were discontinued 2 years ago. You might manage to get one online but you should go for the new Pro HDs instead.
I own all Xiaomi earphones to date and these latest ones are the best so far. The previous generation wasn't that great, the P3 beat those but the new ones are brilliant.
When you say "see things far" how far away are we talking about? In general "throwers" (lights specialized in long range use) have a bigger head to accomodate a larger reflector, so they don't make for good edc, unless you are willing to belt or backpack carry the light.
However, I start considering lights "throwers" when they reach over 400 meters of ansi throw (200 meters of useful lighting distance).
If you want both a light for area lighting, and a thrower, with your budget, I would recommend :
Thrower: xpl-hi convoy c8, you should pick u6-3a on the options. 475 meters of throw, great ui, great build quality, 24 usd.
Wide area: convoy s2+, 1 inch tube light, great price (17 usd) same UI as the c8, 140 meters of throw, great build quality.
or skilhunt h03, a great 90 degree headlamp, for 30 usd. Ill link you a review
You will also need at least 2 18650 rechargeable batteries (one for each light) and a charger. The best 18650 batteries currently available for these lights cost 6 usd each, the ncr18650ga, and a basic charger that works well costs around the same (liitokala lii 100, or xtar mc1)
EDIT: Links. I have not linked the convoy s2+ because you will need some instructions to get the correct version.
|BLF 348|240 Lumens (With 10440)|$11
Single mode, 100+ lumens with a AAA, good pocket clip
For a bit brighter and cheaper (but worse color) the SF-348 is only $4.49
Eagle eye x2R in Neutral white (3c)
Pair it with this panasonic 18650b. if you are in the states, go through illumn.com or liionwholesale or mtnelectronics for the battery.
if you can afford a bit more, the x5r XPL-hi 3A will look more than twice as bright. if you buy this light, i recommend an lg mj1, sanyo 18650GA, or sony VTC6 battery. the panasonic won't like the charging current of this light.
Do you use 18650 lithium-ion batteries? Get the Convoy C8 with XP-L HI LED for about $20. (The V2-1A tint option will appear a little brighter, while the U6-A3 option will give you more saturated colors and have less atmospheric scattering.)
Use AA batteries? Get the Thrunite TN4A with the XP-L HI emitter for $50. Likewise, the HI Cool White option will appear a little brighter, while the HI Neutral White option will give you more saturated colors and have less atmospheric scattering.
And either save the rest of your money or use it to buy batteries and chargers.
Convoy s2+ is the right answer to this question 90% of the time.
I would recommend the t6-3b tint and the 7135x6 driver setting. There are also other colours for the s2+ apart from the black (grey, red, green, blue)
While you are at it, get a convoy c8 as well if you want a cheap thrower.
EDIT: If you need a bunch of chargers, the liitokala lii 100 is the cheapest option I would trust.
I've been running my L6 fine on Liitokala and ThorFire's cells. They're cheap and I tested their rated capacity to be accurate on my Lii-500. The Liitokala's are especially cheap, I got 4 for $20. The one problem is that both are not protected cells. Them possibly being his father in law's first li-on cells, maybe it'd be a good idea to get protected cells since they're in series in the light? Keeppower has great protected 26650's, but they're a bit pricier, with slightly more capacity.
And +1 for the L6! Phenomenal light that's ridiculously bright.
For the record, I ordered this headset from GearBest in China for $10.99 including shipping on June 14 and it arrived here in Atlanta, GA, USA on July 2. The face gasket I harvested from the device is a just a touch smaller than the wide gasket the came with the Vive, but it still fits the Vive without foam padding relatively well with small pieces of sticky-backed velcro (loops, not hooks) stuck to the back of the gasket. Here's a photo of the finished product. Note the lack of wrinkles in the gasket!
The fit is good for a slightly narrower face than mine, but it is otherwise comfortable. The surface of the gasket looks easy to clean. With this, I finally feel comfortable demoing my Vive for others. Thanks for the tip!
the thing is that we allready have 250 buck flagships
The older snapdragon 808 and 810 chips as well as the snapdragon 650 are still flagship performance chips especialy in phones with a 1080p display,
And a decent phone from xiaomi will set you back exactly that.
The Mi4C which is a 3gb ram /32gb storage snapdragon 808 phone is 215 bucks and it has CM13
and the Snapdragon 650 powered Redmi Note 3 is 225
There will always be an elite that always needs to have that latest 125+ antutu scoring 2K screen phone that costs 700+
But for the rest of us, there is flagship class performance at human prices.
There's still a group buy coupon code and stock available.
The coupon code is: 348309CM
Here's the link for the non-engraved light with gift box
Here's the link for the non-engraved light <strong>without</strong> gift box
Here's the link for the engraved light with gift box
The BLF group buy code still works and the light can still be had without the gift box. That way it comes down to $6.99.
It's an Opus, it's a really great charger! I got my BT-C3100 over on Gearbest... not a place I really like to shop from, but the only place at the time I could find to get one. I now think you can get them on Amazon as well... nobody local in the US carring them yet... AFAIK anyway.
A $20 limit on an 18650 powered light is likely going to result in a LOT of compromises, either on features, performance, or quality. Come to think of it, I don't know of a single light that qualifies.
This one is $25 on sale, from a single source:
Up your limit to $30 and you have this, on sale:
As for putting it on a keyring... that's what AAA lights are for. Get a LuminTop Tool. They're about $12 from GearBest if you use discount code "LumintopGB".
Headstrap $1.03 free shipping. /u/gearbest_peter posted it in r/oneplus, thought I'd share since its a great price and will stop you from having to hold it the whole time
As someone who use Redmi Note 3 Pro and Mi Pad 1, I suggest you to avoid Xiaomi tablet. Horrible software, horrible user experience. If the software is buggy now, don't put too much expectation it will ever be fixed.
My friend recently just purchased Lenovo Tab3 8 Plus here. Seems great. This is my impression after playing with it for a while.
Since it seels like you don't really know what you want but you're just wanting to round out your collection, I would suggest getting a headlamp. The Skilhunt H03 (zeroair referral link) is very popular. There's a coupon here that should make it a bit cheaper.
Headlamps are very useful when you're camping.
So instead of a Chromebox, it's an Android Box.
Seems like there are tons of these, priced like Pi units, on the market already.
If you want a beautiful beam, then the TC12 v2 is not for you. There's a high chance of a greenish tint and significant tint shift between the hotspot and spill, typical for any domed XP-L light. Otherwise the Thrunite is a good light in construction and user interface.
If you need integrated USB charging and don't mind ordering from China I'd pick the Eagle Eye X5R with a XP-L HI 3A emitter over the TC12. If you want the best, then pick the Zebralight SC600w Mk III HI for a lot more money.
That Armytek might check all your boxes. There is a similar light that guys around here have been trying that does some of that. No built in charging. The reported low is either .5 lumens, or programmed to 3 lumens. The light is cheaper, and getting some attention. Skilhunt H03 NW, codes have been going around the last few months to lower the price, it is at 32$ with HURE
You could go with a flashlight that has a head strap.
Skilhunt h03 - I've dropped mine tons of times without any problem.
You probably want the floody one instead of a reflector. Its small and powerful. Since it isn't limited to a headlamp you can get more use out of it.
There are coupons to get it for about $30.
From previous posts for people on boats and ships, headlamps with a good moonlight have been recommended a lot. That way you keep your hands free and have a light that won't kill night vision. If we could get a better idea on use case, you would get better recommendations. Also, do you have batteries and a charger? If so what size battery and type of charger.
The Armyteks will probably be the most durable you can find. They will be at the upper limit of your budget, especially if you will need batteries and a charger. They do offer a USB magnetic charger option which may be a good good if you don't have batteries and a charger.
My personal recommendation is the Skilhunt H03 NW Bright, floody, right angle light that can be used as a headlamp. It's extremely light and puts out 8 levels of brightness. Has a pocket clip and magnetic tail cap for all your mountable desires. As for durability, I can't really comment, I haven't dropped mine yet (knock on wood), but the build and quality of the light is great.
PM /u/zeroair, he may have a coupon code, I'm not sure if the expired one had been renewed.
Batteries: NCR18650GA Get 2 and you get a free plastic holder to keep the spare safe in your pack.
[EDIT] Version 2 with just a plug.
Earbuds in question were the $12 AWEI A920BL. Audio quality honestly blew me away for the price, but the left bud cable crapped on me after 8 months of daily use and I broke the element trying to crack it open.
Decided to try if they could drive the larger elements on my AKG Y50's and to my surprise, the answer is yes and actually louder than my phone does with the wire. Apart from the very slight 'signature BT hiss', they sound almost identical.
~~Need to get a better cable though, this was the only 2.5mm plug I had and I didn't really want to cut the coiled wire on it, especially when I'd rather have a straight plug.~~
(At the time I got the Y50's, the BT version cost double, they've come down in price since then though.)
If you give up at some point, I found that exact light for $4 plus shipping here, or you can buy a much better 1xAAA light for $11 (free shipping) here.
For anyone lurking here, heres some basic info you need to know.
You have to have an account on gearbest (easy/free)
USE PAYPAL. If they try to cancel the orders, paypal will hold them to it.
You will NOT be getting these anytime soon. Early January is what I estimate.
The item you are looking for is THIS
At shipping options CHOOSE UNREGISTERED AIR WITH THE INSURANCE OPTION CHECKED.
The Lumintop IYP365 is on sale for a fantastic price (too low to share without getting the vendor in trouble) with this code: LYP11
It doesn't start in firefly, but at that price, it's still worth checking out. Also, you can get it with the Nichia 219BT emitter. One final note: the code should only work once per account, so if you enter it to check out the price, leave the window open in case you decide to buy.
Another one of my favorites is the ThorFire PF04: https://www.amazon.com/ThorFire-PF04-Flashlight-Batteries-Included/dp/B01IHENP34/
It has mode memory, so it can start in whatever mode you leave it in. Just be warned that its firefly mode is low enough that it is useless unless your eyes are completely dark-adapted.
Philips Hue - 25000 Hours, so 25 years with 2.7 hours usage per day.
Xiaomi Smart Bulb - 11 years
There is no best battery for cold, as they will all lose some performance and capacity.
As for your light, I recommend a headlamp like the armytek wizard pro or Zebralight H600Fw or Skilhunt H03 NW. Pair it with a sanyo 18650GA 3500mah and xtar mc1 or nitecore F1 from illumn.com, because we trust them and it's cheap. I assume you mean Buffallo New York.
your budget and requirements can't narrow down your selection at all though...
Perhaps if you want built-in charging, look at the thrunite TC12NW (this comes with everything, no other purchase required) or the nitecore MH20W.
That's neat. But if you are looking for a more "full" controller experience, I really like this one from gearbest. Controller and clip for phone can be had for about $10.50.
EDIT: Just noticed I was on GoogleCardboard subreddit. If you are just using it with Google Cardboard, you don't need a "full" controller experience.
In all honesty, though, google cardboard and other phone vr stuff is pretty dope. You can even stream games from your desktop to your phone for vr via wifi or usb and there are some decently nice headsets out there that have a wide FOV.
/r/GoogleCardboard for those interested.
> I'm in Australia and would like to keep to approx. AUD50. Am I dreaming?
No, you're not.
For the small light, perhaps the BLF 348, though it isn't quite designed to go on a keychain.
Convoy S2+ UV 365nm. This thing puts out nearly a watt of UV radiation and costs less than the individual retail price of the emitter that powers it. Just don't put CR123s in it.
Light: BLF-348. A really nice stainless steel, single mode aaa with a perfect tint. Here is a non-engraved version. Use coupon code 348309CM.
Knife: Kershaw Launch 4. California-legal automatic (under 2 inches). Made in the USA.
No, the Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro aka the Dual Hybrid IEMs are the best at the moment, they came out 2 months ago as a successor to the Piston 3.
You can get them here: http://www.gearbest.com/earphones/pp_261864.html
The cheapest genuine vendor I know. My Hybrids are from GB as well.
To add to /u/zak's great writeup, the ad you saw for "the world's brightest flashlight" at 700lm and $200 was probably one of these, marked up and hyped up to a ridiculous degree. To be clear, that is in no way even near the brightest flashlight available.
what i dont get is whats the point of console OS.
Theres like a few dozen TV boxes with both 3735/3736 and X5 Atoms which run both windows and android.
you can get one in stick form from 91 bucks
All of this shit is just for a Android launcher to make it easier to use on the desktop ?
Both coupon codes are for GearBest
The first cheaper $59 coupon code is actually from Ben at Living Survival.
The coupon code is in the description, if it is no longer in the description then his deal is no longer avaiable.
The 2nd code is for $65.99 shipped.
Coupon code: EC4SEM
Here's a link to u/mcfarlie6996's review of the EC4S
**Edit: I didn't notice the black friday sale thread but i also believe these coupons are unrelated to black Friday.
Meh, with Windows and Android ATV sized boxes going for a third of the price who cares? The only real reason to jailbreak ATV was Kodi(XBMC) , there really wasn't much else that was useful, and the aforementioned boxes have that covered admirably. This is what I'd recommend now for Kodi : http://www.gearbest.com/tv-box/pp_180548.html , just set up one for a friend and it performs much much better than my ATV2 does and has a lot of other functionality. Not saying ATV4 isn't an interesting propsition though
first, Aliexpress is not "very safe", you can get a lot of crap and fakes there since it's just a platform and not a reseller.
2nd, the 50% discount is not worth a penny (e.g. Gearbest: http://www.gearbest.com/smart-watches/pp_126026.html)
The MiBand is quite nice though.
If you just want to get a taste this is a good starter for around $50: http://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopters/pp_73260.html
Comes with camera. Gets shakey but decent 720p footage. About 10 minutes of fly time and has decent range. Almost anyone can fly it and it's super durable.
I think it's an excellent starter helicopter. If you want a first person view (where you can see through the camera while it's flying) I would say you need to spend at least around $500.
If you want help building or picking one check out this subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/multicopterbuilds
Bluetooth remotes (as in Camera clicker) don't work, they connect as bluetooth keyboards and send a single key code. Camera apps on iOS and Android listen to these codes (differing for each OS, which is why many of the remotes have two buttons), but VR apps don't. The only thing you'll achieve is turning the volume down, as this is one of the keys used to trigger the camera shutter.
There is [one remote that works with Cardboard which is often referred to here](/r/GoogleCardboard/comments/2u7aqv/onehanded_bluetooth_3_controller_for_684_free/), but it only works because it also simulates a bluetooth mouse and a gamepad. The mouse part can be used to send a left mouse button click to the phone, which Android interprets the same as a screen touch, so it works as a replacement for the Cardboard magnets or capacitative button. It is also recognized as a gamepad and works with pretty much all Cardboard apps that support bluetooth controllers. It isn't a replacement for a regular sized gamepad and needs to be recharged very frequently due to a rather tiny battery, but in general I'd recommend it as a cheap clicker for Cardboard and a gamepad for short experiments.
The remove is available for around USD 5 on different sites, but be aware that there are two versions, the newer one has a separate select button. They both work, but I'd recommend getting the older one (with only five buttons on top), because it comes with some short, but essential instructions how to connect/enable the different modes (visible on the linked product page). The new one comes without any instructions and nobody seems to have them, even though someone managed to get it to work by taking the instructions for the old one as guidelines and then applying a lot of try and error.
Have you seen Zeos's "Boombox" made with a pair of Micca speakers? You could build one of those and attach a bluetooth receiver
> I'm worried because I've heard horror stories about GearBest
And you still ordered from there....
Anyway, depending on what kind of shipping you selected, it can take a couple weeks or a couple months.
is this one of those cheap asian jackets
i searched google and found this http://www.gearbest.com/jackets-coats/pp_17028.html
don't do it the sizing will be super wonky and it doesn't look very warm
I bought a G1W-C. It is $41.99 delivered with coupon GBG1W.
It meets your requirements, 1080p, can take 32Gb card, continuous recording. Everything I researched said, that while it isn't the flashiest with basic features, the camera is good and for ~$40 it is nicely cheap.
If you don't have a thrower, a clear convoy c8 with biscotti..
The ui is a LOT better than the stock s2+ UI, and the throw is impressive in that size.
I think this would fit your needs for a headlamp:
On sale for $28.99 with code LSFDRUI
Here is a handheld that currently has people excited and is floody, but might need to work in order to catch it in stock:
These are both powered by 1x18650, which offers better performance, but may or may not be what you're looking for.
These looks pretty much like the QCY Q29. They go for $50 here.
I have the QCY Q26 that is just one ear bud. Use it for calls and listening to podcasts and it's doing a good jub.
Economics. If making a XD 2 would make GPD more money than a WIN 2 then GPD would be making that.
Now on to the price, the GPD WIN 1 original retail price was $499. It is now retailing for the the much more reasonable $300 ish. I'd expect that by the time the WIN 2 actually makes it to market, market forces will have pushed down price to the $350-450 range (M3 tablets are already in the $270s).
Android sucks for gaming. This is not an issue with the OS, but the default device just is not geared up for it, so most games are sucky. Windows games assuming that you will have the right hardware.
Finally, who says they are not? Depending on the size of the team at GPD they may well be looking into it. The XD is definitely due an update.
The Piston 3's are out of stock almost everywhere because they were discontinued 2 years ago and the Hybrids aren't that good. You should get the latest Hybrid Pros instead, which are superior to both.
If you are sitting in a quiet room, a person next to you will hear it but doubt that it can be heard on transit for instance.
Your best bet is likely from Atactical. Either the A1 or A1S are a phenomenal value. I would even consider just buying two of the A1 since the difference in brightness isn't that big.
If Amazon doesn't work for you there are other options like the Eagle Eye X2R.
For those curious about getting a micro drone. I bought this one for my nephew. http://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopters/pp_571962.html
It's very cheap and flies indoors and indestructible which is probably why the owner lets the cat take his claws to it.
