Review: COMAN Flexible Camera Tripod w/ ball mount and cell phone holder and Bluetooth remote trigger.

I found this Conman Flexible Camera Tripod online ( https://amzn.to/2JCLFtR ). I needed a small travel flexible tripod for my my vlogging with my phone and camera.

I have been using it for over 2 weeks and like the compact yet durable tripod. Starting from the legs, they are metal wire legs covered with rubber. I bend them for a lower tripod height or to use them to grip a pole or branch. The legs are sturdy. The only complaint would be the base of the 3 legs do not spread wide enough and are plastic. This makes it hard to wrap objects that are wider than 4 inches. On the side of the legs base is a 1/4 inch mount for accessories. Pretty useful if you have needed to add a mic or light accessory to your vlogging rig.

I love the ball head mount. Its all metal base and ball head is very well built. It holds my 2 pound DSLR as well as my cell phone camera without sliding. The top base mount has a 1/4 inch mount and a hidden fold out smart phone holder. The smartphone holder is large enough for my 6.9 inch Samsung Note S20 Ultra to fit in as well my other cell phones. The 1/4 inch mount fits most cameras and dslrs. The issue with the 1/4 inch mount is the lack of tightening knob. I basically can have to twist the base mount against my DSLR to tighten, which may mar the base labeling of my camera or mount at an incorrect angle.

I also had issues removing the 1/4 mount off the ball mount. Coman must have put thread lock or glue in the 1/4 inch mount. Even wrenching it with my hands i was not able to loosen it from the ball mount.

The kit came with a bluetooth remote trigger. Hold down the single button for 5 seconds to pair it with a smart phone. It basically calls the down volume key to trigger the smart phone to take a picture or start video recording. Simple and effective. The only problem is the lack of a easy way to open the remote to replace the battery. There are not visible slots. I guess i will have to deal with it when the battery expires.

Overall, this is a good tripod with flexible legs. Definitely more heavy duty than plastic grip tripods. I actually bought 3 of them, one for my camera, and two for lighting.

Costco Type S 12v Jump Starter (8,000 mAh Power Bank – USB C) $49 UNBOXING

Costco has a new Type S 12v Jump Starter for $49 (on sale, normally $59). Its also a 8,000 mAh Power Bank with USB C and USB A connections for 2.4A charging. There are other 12v jump starters and larger power bank combos online: https://amzn.to/2JlQ44d .

I bought this Type S Jump Starter to replace my 2016 WinPlus Jumpstarter was starting to lose charge. I guess the lifespan for these are about 4 years for replacement. At $49 it was a good deal and my 2016 version saved me several times during various roadtrips and at work when a co-worker needed a jump.

The new features of this 2020 Type S 12 volt jump starter was the IP64 water resistance, the digital display instructions on the side of the device, and the USB C (input and output) which is my typical standard charging plug for most of my devices. It does come with a 12v USB car charger and a micro USB charge cable. The USB fast charging at 2.4a is a good feature. The primary use of this will still be as a car jumper, as travel a lot on the road during the weekend and for road trips.

Per the instructions, it needs to be over 50% charged in order to jump a car and it needs to be charged every 2-3 months to keep the battery life. So I the unit was made in June 2020 (100%) and now its October 2020 with 60% charge, so it basically lost 10% a month or perhaps it was only 80% charged after being built. Any ways, I normally charge every 1-2 month so this should last me another 4 years.
