Promising review: Awesome little transmitter. Bought one for my car that doesn't have an aux. Impressed with the build quality, audio quality, and the quick charge feature. ... Was simple to pair up to my phone and get it tuned to a dead FM channel. Sounds like CD quality sound to me.
Promising review: I am very happy with this product. Although it just uses the simple mechanism of magnets, it makes life so much easier for me. I do a lot of driving ... [and] having a magnetic mount has made ... my life so much easier during these trips.
Promising review: I needed it the other morning, less than a week after getting it when working an overnight shift. For what I paid for this, if it never did another thing, it was well worth being there when I needed it. I feel much safer with it in the car. I would put one in every car I owned if I had a family and kids driving.
Promising review: Easy installation ... Especially pleased with the adhesive radio stand that enables me to place it anywhere on my dashboard I wish. If you are halfway handy, you could install this and hide the wires etc. with just a little investment of your time. The three months free upfront was a nice gesture also.
Promising review: Fits nearly flush to the surface, but has enough of a lip that it can be gripped for removal. The blue light is nicely adjusted to be visible in daylight (not direct sun), but not annoyingly bright at night. The two USB ports mean both of our phones can charge at the same time, who doesn't love win-win?
Promising review: These work insanely well for what they're supposed to do. They have incredibly strong adhesive and will keep your cable in place. The rubber is a little harder than the competition, making it harder to get the cables in but also harder to get them out. This ends up being a giant plus.
Promising review: I've been using it daily for over 8 months and it's been perfect. The clarity and data storage is amazing. Caught a vehicle crash in front of me and was able to turn it over to the driver not at fault. ... Thank you Apeman team.
Promising review: I love this! I have always wanted heated car seats, but the car we chose didn't have them. When I found this AND saw the price, I had to try it. I use this EVERY TIME I drive my car. I like that there are two heat settings (high and low) and how quickly it heats up.
Promising review: This converter is great for older cars. I use it to listen to music with a lot of bass and treble and I haven't found any loss in quality from my music. ... Definitely recommend!
Promising review: The fridge works as advertised and is a great little addition to my car. ... It does its job quietly and unobtrusively. ... I was so impressed, I went looking to see what other products AstroAI makes that I might need.
Promising review: This organizer is a life saver! My kids are always losing things under the seat. This organizer has a space for all their things! I am impressed by the amount of items that fit in the variety of pockets. I highly recommend this car organizer because of the range of storage options, the quality and the ease of installation.
Promising review: This thing has been a life saver. When I was pregnant and had terrible back pain, the only thing that helped was having a heating pad 24/7. I had to drive from St. Louis to Chicago a few times and this thing made it so I could have my heating pad. I don't know if I could have made that drive without this. Charged cell phones really fast too, runs with no noise [and] does not get hot when running.
