Touchless Soap Dispenser Review

Let’s be real: hand washing is absolutely non-negotiable in 2020, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests that washing your hands for at least 20 seconds is one of the best ways to protect yourself against COVID-19.

And since more frequent handwashing calls for more soap, this means you’re definitely going to be touching that soap dispenser pump all day long. This, of course, can allow you to go through soap quickly, and lead you to wonder how clean your soap dispenser pump actually is, especially if you are like me and forget to wipe it down often.

Touchless soap dispensers claim to be a fast fix to this problem. and since handwashing is a must these days, I decided to give the Secura Premium Touchless Battery Operated Electric Automatic Soap Dispenser a try. This dispenser controls how much soap you use (which is great for soap wasters like me), and prevents you from touching the soap dispenser at the same time.

When it comes to setup, I’ll admit that setting up this touchless soap dispenser requires patience, as you’ll need a small screwdriver to open the battery compartment. Once the batteries were finally secured in, and the screws were put back into place, I proceeded to add almost all of the 42oz bottle of liquid hand soap I had into the container lid, and seal it shut with the unit’s twist-on cap, which was fantastic for preventing soap spills and for keeping moisture out to prevent clogs.

Now about that dispensing. Let me start off by saying it can be hard to find your ‘soap norm’ at first, as the unit’s adjustable dial is on the trickier side. Figuring it out took me a minute or so, until the helpful product instructions revealed that rotating the dial

Gadget Review: RHA TrueConnect 2 – Expensive earphones, but worth it

RHA is a relatively unknown brand in India, but these earphones are something everyone needs to know about. The RHA TrueConnect 2 is a very stylish pair of wireless earphones, designed and engineered in the UK, as the packaging claims.

I particularly like the simplistic design. The earphones are made of a rubberised plastic, which has a nice tactile feel to it. The unique box is made of a combination of metal and plastic that offers a satisfying click when you open and close it. The case also has a built-in battery pack that charges the earphones while they rest in the box. While the earphones last for around nine hours, the case offers another 35 hours of total power. These earphones come with seven pairs of silicone ear tips—two sets of small, three sets of medium and two sets of large.

The RHA TrueConnect 2 uses Bluetooth 5.0 and is very simple to connect, just long-press and it is ready to pair.

When you put these on, the first thing you will notice is how light they are. They weigh only six grams an ear-piece and are comfortable enough to wear the entire day without any fatigue. The fit is snug and does a great job of passively blocking out external sounds. There is no active noise cancellation (ANC).

Overall, this is a good pair if you are looking for understated, great-sounding true wireless earphones. The three-year warranty, the quality construction and the IP55 dust and water resistance make this a good long-term investment as well. At R12,999 these are a little pricier than I would like them to be.

Apple Watch Series 6 review: Outstanding smartwatch, but health software offers little guidance Review

Apple debuted the new Apple Watch Series 6 earlier this month and I’ve been testing out the new (PRODUCT)RED 44mm GPS model. At first glance it doesn’t seem much different than the Apple Watch Series 5, but there’s more than meets the eye.

Regular readers know I’m a sucker for buying colorful watches and phones so when I saw the new navy blue and red aluminum watch offerings I knew one of them had to be mine. While blue is one of my favorite colors, I couldn’t find one readily available and since I already purchased a (PRODUCT)RED Apple iPhone SE, I selected the red Apple Watch Series 6. These new colors are attractive and the one visually distinguishing difference between the Series 5 and Series 6.

Apple does not include an A/C adapter for the USB cable in

Flightpath review | TechRadar

Flightpath is a small, New York-based digital marketing agency offering the full spectrum of online marketing services. Among its most popular services is search engine optimization (SEO), helping businesses improve their website’s search engine ranking. 

Flightpath has a very small online presence, though, and its website is extremely bare, providing little information about its services. However, we’ve scoured the web and gathered as much information as possible to bring you the following Flightpath evaluation. Here, you will find details about the company’s prices, customer service, main features, and more.

Flightpath: Plans and pricing

Unfortunately, Flightpath provides absolutely no information about its prices or the way it develops custom SEO solutions. It does appear to specialize in complete digital marketing packages, rather than any single stream (SEO, for example) on its own. 

Now, we did find one indication of the Flightpath’s prices on clutch.co, a popular online review site. Here, its rates are listed as $25,000+ per project and $150–$199 per hour, which is standard for a high-quality SEO company. 

Ultimately, though, it appears that Flightpath develops custom solutions with custom prices for each new client it works with. Because of this, we’d encourage you to reach out to the team via the online contact form or one of its social media channels if you’d like more information.

Flightpath: How it works

Once again, there is very little information available about how Flightpath operates. It doesn’t provide any sort of service outline on its website, which is a little concerning. Really, it is nice to be able to at least have an idea about the way a company works before spending time reaching out to the team and

Mayple SEO services review | TechRadar

Mayple is a relatively unique digital marketing service provider offering a wide range of SEO, SEM, and PPC marketing packages, among others. Rather than directly employing a team of marketing experts, Mayple acts as a third party designed to connect expert marketers with new clients. 

In our search for the best SEO services, we decided to complete a full Mayple evaluation. We’ve looked closely at this SEO service provider and its main features to help you determine whether or not it’s the best option for your needs.

Mayple: Plans and pricing

Unlike most top-end SEO companies, Mayple offers predefined packages. Unfortunately, it doesn’t provide custom solutions, which will be a problem for many businesses because, as you probably know, everyone has different SEO needs.

Mayple’s cheapest Essential SEO package is designed for small- to medium-sized businesses that need to build their online presence. It costs $1,800 per month and includes a range of content optimization, keyword analysis, link building, and technical optimization features. 

The higher-end Premium plan costs $3000 per month—significantly more than the Essential plan—but it doesn’t seem to add a whole lot more. You get the benefit of SEO-optimized videos and images, along with link building to three domains instead of one, but to us, this doesn’t justify the massive price jump. 

One very nice feature that stood out was Mayple’s 30-day money-back guarantee. Basically, you can try the company’s services and, if you don’t like them, cancel within the first month and get a full refund.

Mayple: How it works

Mayple works slightly differently to most SEO service providers. Rather than offering direct SEO services itself, it acts as a go-between that facilitates contact
