Aliexpress have a big sale, that means it is the right time to post review ideas for discounted stuff from them.

i have 93 items in my cart on aliexp and usually i buy them evaluating price fluctuation and EUR/USD forex variation.... beware that there are legit sale but many prices are also rised few days before and marked as sale when they just have the normal price, or less discount...sometimes the price is even few cents more than usual discounted price.

 

 

This is the lowest i found 38.96 on Aliexp General Sale 

 

 

My 2 cents

Hello,

After the Fonken Qc3 test, there is a basic version “Smart 2.4A”
Very inexpensive 3-4 euros.
It would be interesting to have a test

Thanks

This actually looks pretty cool, I wonder if the refresh rate is high enough to properly test ripple. HKJ will you be buying this to test?

I did look a bit at them in my Dragon review. They do improve IR measurement significantly because some wire and connection resistance is eliminated, but they are not perfect. The probes for YR1030 & YR1035 eliminates all connection and contact resistance.

From what I see they are just passive probes.

Yes, so they can be used with any USB Voltmeter. But only in the voltage range of the voltmeter.
Like the YZXStudio ZY1263.

No, the connections in the sb connector do not fit.

Generally I like your suggestions, but there is one problem and that is money. I use a few 100$ (It is that high) each month on stuff to review and that is acceptable for me, but a lot of our suggestions would basically drain my budget for a few items (A month is nearly 31 days and I publish a review most days). If you want to pay for the item I would gladly review it, but when I have to pay for it, the number of your suggestion that get reviewed is rather low. I am sorry about that , but I do not have unlimited funds (your suggestions are usual very interesting).

On another note: I do seldom ask manufactures about review items, I do not like to beg for anything (That may be silly, but it is how I have learned to live), but if a dealer/manufacturer ask me about reviewing a item I will usual say yes (As long as it is on my review list).

That charger probably is an OEM charger, seen that design many times:

If you need funds to review this charger, I’m willing to help. There is a shortage of good higher wattage multi port USB/USB-C chargers and I’ve rarely seen good (technical) reviews.

I have been a bit quite when people is suggesting USB-C PD type chargers, mostly because I could not test them. This has been fixed now and I can run my usual test on all the supported voltages in a charger. The last couple of days I have been testing a few.
I have also added a Paypal account to info@lygte-info.dk if anybody what to help me pay for some of the stuff I test. I cannot promise that any specific request is honored, but I will try.
