I swear by Anker. I own Anker power bank and car charger...Good brand...


It's actually pretty good, it's got a nice bass and a very clear midrange, it's also tiny; I'm going to try it tomorrow as a standalone instead of my truck's bluetooth, it will fit in a cupholder.

The built in FM radio was a surprise and it looks like it may do a bit of voice recognition if you keep Google and Alexia on.

Just bought this handheld games machine, £20, it's better than I expected 200 or so games including classics like space invaders well it's called Galaxy Battle but it's very similar. The screen is pretty clear considering it's only 2.5 inch. It's fun and nostalgic playing the kind of games there are on this thing. The build quality for the money isn't bad.

It is cool. Amazon, search mini arcade machine and a few different one's will come up the looks vary a little between them different colour schemes and stuff.

Argos also sells them and no doubt some other places as well.

Not a gadget but I love the vivid arts collection. Especially the Gorilla and sitting chimpanzee for the garden.

With handheld stuff you aren't going to get much bigger than like 5 inch. It starts to get too big obviously.

Image How about this, 4.3 inch, I'm thinking of getting it at some point soonish it's from amazon and £40, should be £70 apparently. 600 or so 80s and 90s games on it.

That's pretty cool.

I have a little handheld Sega emulator at home which I got off Ebay several years ago which is still going great guns. It has lots of games on it but the only one I have played much is Altered Beast!

Nice, I had the Sega Master System back in the day.

Speaking of games do you remember the racing game Outrun? I'd love to find a handheld machine that has it on I was pretty damn good at Outrun.

I loved Outrun and IIRC couldn't you choose the music on the radio station before starting the game? It was epic.

I had a Sega Mega Drive and loved games like Space Harrier and Afterburner too.

Just received that "SUPER GAME" handheld games console today. It's quite brilliant, connects to your big screen as well. :mrgreen: Games like Street Fighter, Tekken, Mortal Kombat and FIFA 98 are included, plenty of Mario stuff if that's your thing. Plenty of car racing games as well.
