Testing 5 Car Gadgets!


what’s going on everybody this is James white with freaking interviews bringing you product comparisons gadget reviews and more and if you like what you see in this video please consider subscribing for more videos like this not today I’ve got several items that are kind of ideal to use in the car we’ll see how they all work in today’s video [Music] so today I’ve got several car related items some of them were actually for use in a car and some of them might kind of repurposed for the car because I thought they were kind of good to have on a road trip so without further delay let’s get right to it [Music] first up is the drive bin which does say it’s a see on TV more shark tank than the proper se on TV but this is actually a trashcan for your car it says that includes liners I also want to find out if I can use store bags and placing these liners because I don’t have to keep buying liners for them here some liners well there really is there really isn’t much to it there’s nothing in there and I think this just goes on the back of the seat I think maybe these instructions to find out I mean I don’t know if I need instructions to use a trash can but you would think they’d at least tell you how to attach it there are no instructions or these the instructions they have instructions for the liners but they don’t have instructions for the bin itself it is kind of ironic I get instructions how to put a bag in here but I don’t have instruction on how to attach this when all I’ve got is this strap and you think they’d at least tell you and then I have I have this like this velcro there’s doesn’t tell you what to do with it so I have to go online and look up how to properly I don’t want to do it wrong cuz I I get to all them do everything wrong anyways but I want to at least give it a temp to do it right so I might I might give this a little bit later all right I’m in the backseat of my car now I kind of looked around the website to just make sure I’m using it the right way and here’s what they’re showing really all you have to do is just put it over the headrest like this this is adjustable so you can actually get at the height you want and then we have the liners that came with it but these liners as you can see right here there’s a hole that goes over this little clip right here which will keep it in place alright now I gotta clean the mess up in the back see this car I just got back from my road trip and I clean up this mess you know be tickets trash back here what’s uh what’s up with that what how this get back here come on now guys all parents know you gotta watch out for the fries the backseat junk junk now that my drive-ins full of trash let’s see how easy it is to replace the bag oh wow these just broke off actually they’re not very strong loops I guess you don’t need it to be the only problem I see with this is I don’t think I want to be the person who has to sit there and look at this the whole time because one person is gonna have the drive bin right in their face if you put in this configuration there are other ways to do it here’s another configuration if you only got two passengers the back seat maybe a little better option because it sits in the center then and the person in this seats not gonna be facing the trash can the whole time so far I think it’s pretty cool there’s a few more tests with the drive bin that I want to try that I want to get out of the cramped car to do these number one is will a store bag work in here number two is it waterproof because they show people using this kind of as a replacement for a cooler even though it doesn’t have a lid in number three how many sodas does it actually holds so let’s try all those things with a drive bin let’s try store bag okay well this size depth-wise it seems okay and it looks like the handles of the bags should clip over here pretty nicely okay I really wouldn’t invest in liners when you have store bags like these probably laying around some people don’t get these where you’re at so you might have to buy the liners but where I’m at they still have these bags I’ve got a ton of them I will definitely use these in the drive bin next up let’s see how much water this thing holds I have a one gallon of water and I think this is supposed to be waterproof let’s find out we’ll see how much water it holds to okay so say you got ice in there and melted that’s only about halfway up this is gonna hold about two gallons and it is not leaking I think you can safely put ice in there and not worry about leaking all of your car that water came out when I said when I poured it no water down here on the table I think for these two tests a store bag in the water it definitely passed and now let’s see how many sodas this will actually hold you can definitely safely hold six you could probably bit more on top here I know if I put it like that maybe put a few across this way depends on what you guys want to do remember this is gonna be hanging over the back seat see if I don’t want too many but can definitely hold a six-pack probably put some ice in there you’d be good to go next step I open this yeah I’m gonna unbox it right here in this outlet parking lot this isn’t necessarily a car at item per se but it’s actually advertised also as a keyboard cleaner but they also advertise it as be able to clean the inside of your car your vents your screens so I’m gonna use this it’s called the super clean and it’s kind of this gooey looking jell slime that you put on there and you pull off and all the dust comes off the packaging says it’s for keyboards but I was seeing a lot of people talking about using it for your vents in your car and displays in your car so we’ll see I might need the drive bin for this packaging it says it kills germs too well they really they’re really had no instructions it just says it’s good for pretty much everything and it doesn’t leave any residues not residue but residues we know it feels very slimy very slimy oh wow oh come on now this I’m supposed to use this on my on my keyboard and my computer trying to get it all out oh come on now is this just that slime they sell for kids and they’re just repackaging it for something else it’s kind of what it looks like well though I don’t feel any residue on my hand let’s try it for the the dash and see how it actually goes oh well I mean it seems like it’s picking up the dust again there aren’t really too good of instructions on like how to apply it they just kind of show it show them sticking it on a keyboard and other services I definitely a lot of dust here on this on the screen let me see how that looks oh yeah it’s actually taken enough Wow I just had defroster on it’s hundred one degrees outside okay we don’t need that hey this is actually this is actually not not really that bad I keep hitting the buttons it’s almost fun oh yeah how about all this this crustiness down here see if I can get some of that up here just getting some of it I wouldn’t say it’s getting all of it but it’s getting some of it I guess it depends on how hard you push and how much you rub it in it’s not leaving any kind of a residue either it seems like it seems like it’s working pretty well I’m just kind of a little bit shocked I thought I was gonna make it kind of a wet texture but it’s not I don’t know if you guys use it for a car by the way with this super clean I forgot that it said to do not rub just press so far I’m actually I kind of like in the way this cleans oh wow it’s kind of dirty in there maybe I should pull out one of these super cleans and try that clean that out first that looks kind of dirty and I just had this car washed someone slacking guys all right let’s try this yep maybe that maybe use a different technique is better but this seems like it’s kind of working that’s better what isn’t it this is lifted up what is that I don’t know what that is yeah I mean you can see that’s getting it’s getting gunk off of there for sure some dust here I will say when I was driving home I was noticing how much cleaner this – looked so it certainly worked alright and I’m having too much fun a super clean here look at Dirt Nasty [Music] so I kind of scoured Amazon looking for cool car gadgets and I found a couple of lighted ones that I thought were worth a look because they had high ratings they look pretty interesting so first up are these luminous coasters for cars I haven’t open these up yet I believe these are chargeable and you put them where your drinks go and they light up and nothing nothing at all oh it’s upside-down try that again and instructions right this is what they look like there’s two of them and I have a Ford so I got the Ford style of coasters charging cable and what what is that guess we’ll find out see we got here for the instructions they don’t seem very extensive which they shouldn’t if it’s just a a light it shouldn’t be that extensive says the lighting needs to satisfy two conditions insufficient light and coaster vibration there are 17 lighting modes reporting instruction says after the light is bright the light is dark but the vibration disappears and the light goes out after 15 seconds no clue what that means I guess I just have to use this and find out and I believe this paper clip looking thing might be for pressing this button and there’s only one cable and you got two lights guess they have to take turns I’m gonna plug these in and tonight I’ll put them in the car and say look let’s see how they fit in here okay well if it’s all right these have both been charged apparently they’re supposed to automatically work when the car is when it’s dark and the car is vibrating so we’ll see about that I hope that you don’t have to keep messing with this little button right here because it’s pretty hard to get to without that pin I don’t have to carry this pin around because I know I’ll lose it I guess I use a paper clip it’s still I didn’t worry about the pin I just push the button with my finger and it worked fine according the instructions it says that they need a vibration from the car and darkness but the car’s not moving in there working another thing is they show the bottle of water being there that’s cool I like that a lot very nice but what they don’t show is other things how about a can of soda not quite as impressive as the bottle of water while the water looks cool soda not so much how about a tumbler not even worse I did try these out the other night I’m not totally sure if I’m thinking I’m getting about five hours of a time from these yes they are blingy they’re not necessary but honestly yeah I kind of like them I’m gonna probably keep using them the only thing is you have to turn them on before each use so the co-star also if you press the button on the back you can set a certain color there are quite a few modes here so this is red it’s gonna stay red it kind of pull Sates but it stays red go blue there’s quite a few options so you can push that button to cycle through the one that you like the other thing is it will shut off after 15 minutes but if you don’t shut it off manually it’ll come back on when the car is in motion [Music] all right next up in my lighted card gadgets these are these atmosphere car lights these are pretty cool everybody seemed to like them they seemed a little bit blingy but a how people like bling so let’s try this out and a lot of stuff all right so we’ve got a relatively long cable here 12 volt and there’s a that’s PI for the remote control and then we’ve got these which I’ll have to go attach these in my car so I don’t to worry about charging this just plugs in got a remote some 3m sticky z ER and some instructions that I hope are better than the other one there’s a four lights here they’re pretty long they don’t chance on the wires that’s for sure wanna make sure it’s not the way of my feet when I’m driving that look straight my passenger-side in the front now in the backseat here there’s no one underneath this is just like this it’s not a smooth flat surface I’m gonna have to put it right there which I’m not thrilled about that but I’m gonna do anyways I guess I don’t know we’ll see yeah for the last seat now I’ve plugged in the 12 back here supposedly this button activates them I’ll see how this looks tonight now I’m not real through all these wires on my car and all this I’ll try to straight up these wires tonight so it doesn’t look so cluttered and take it out for a little drive and see how they look no forget I had this remote control here as well now my question is what happens if the remote control stops working then what but otherwise installation was quick took me about four minutes that does look pretty cool this is the driver’s side right here very cool but I’ve noticed this my foot has been bumping this so it’s like she’s starting to fall down here so I’m having to put that back up the passenger side same thing he said was not very strong so I’m have to get some different adhesive for this I like the effect but the adhesives not very good okay so back here in the backseat this one has not been falling off I think maybe because it’s out of way of people’s feet same with this side this one’s staying pretty well I’m gonna point out the remote control I’ve not been able to get to work try taking the battery out I put new battery in it’s not working I saw quite a few customers on Amazon say the same thing so I got one of the unlucky ones cannot play with a remote control so that’s kind of disappointing I still think it’s cool I just wish the drone worked fortunately it’s on a setting now that kind of rotates through everything so it’s not and not so bad [Music] in this box is potentially the most interesting of the car gadgets I’ve gotten here look how Bailey’s interested there’s no filler snippet see she’s interested this is an inflatable mattress for the car and it’s supposedly fits right in the backseat and suppose he fits in most cars so what I’m going to do here is unbox it read the instructions take it out front and try it in my car and see how it goes and this will be the air compressor I was worried that maybe I would need one but apparently I don’t I will go with these instructions and see what all this is good instructions seems to be a rarity these days that’s nice to see this would be the patch kit I believe alright comes with two pillows that are also inflatable you smell Bailey what you smell you smell the air compressor isn’t that long goes in there I was hoping to bring it in my garage and do it in here because the concrete is so 115-degree it’s very hot I was hoping not to lay the the match was on there so wouldn’t get damaged but I’m gonna have to put bring it up at least this far it looks like there’s one two three places got a blow-up and those two pillows over there here we go oh wow very quick wow that was very very fast alright number two here it’s weird how this small pillow takes longer to inflate than the rest of it got the two pillows now that I’m done ah okay I’m not sure how useful easier gonna be I’d probably bring a regular pillow back here but nice thought at least you get those out here I guess it’s comfortable if you saw my last video where I had the travel gadgets and I didn’t like the texture of the travel pillow this whole thing is that texture I don’t like this texture I might be in the minority but personally I don’t like it I could put a blanket over there so that wouldn’t be a problem I do feel like everything’s kind of slightly sloped that way but maybe if I roll around here a little bit I do feel like I have more room to lay so it gives you more space this way to lay down I think this might work yeah give it a little bit test later the inflation was pretty good I don’t think it was perfect right now I take a break from this and I’m gonna come back later and test this out and see if I can actually sleep in here that’s next all right I’m actually laying in my back seat right now it’s actually quite comfortable I must say even though it has that material I don’t like so much I was gonna put a sheet down but I kind of forgot IRA back in college days I actually said the back seat of my car several times this actually would have been awesome back then this is way more comfortable in a back seat I do like this as an air mattress alternative to sleeping in my back seat not that I encourage people to sleep in the back seats but if you’re gonna do it you might as well do in style right and you also notice I actually have a different pillow because the the ones they offer you it’s a nice gesture but they’re just not comfortable this is a real pillow I could actually sleep like this but at some point I’m gonna want to stretch my legs out I won’t be able to and there it is in the back seat of my car pretty comfortable not too bad really it could be a lot worse I wanted to point out something the day after spending so much time on the air mattress it looks like it didn’t lose too much air lost a little bit overnight well actually this part lost a little bit more this parts didn’t lose lists and this one and that’s the one night that’s with me testing it out and laying on it for a while last night so uh I think it lasted long enough for a use but it’s not something you probably have to re-inflate it before each use and I don’t think that’s really unusual for an air mattress toy I do think that the air mattress seems pretty durable I do think that there are people out there that would find a use for this I haven’t found any major flaws like I said a little bit of air loss overnight early isn’t that unusual for Matros so you know sixty bucks do you guys think that’s a good deal for a car air mattress I think it’s not too bad what do you guys think all right so let’s recap everything in the video let’s start off with the drive bin and I thought it did pretty well I’m not sure I’m necessary it is to be honest I don’t I’m not sure if most people need a separate item to put the trash and some people do it depends on you the type of car you have how you approach your trash management inside your car some people will love the idea some people probably won’t but I will say that everything that they advertise it is doing it does so I’m pretty happy with it 14 bucks it was pretty inexpensive so I think that Drive been overall it’s pretty good the super clean was the only non car gadget that I kind of repurposed for cars here but I did think that it worked really well I will say that because there was no instructions I didn’t read the packaging too carefully the first time and they just said not to rub it I was doing that but actually that seemed to work just as well as their method which is placed it on there and peeling it off I think either way works and I was surprised at how well it took the dust off of my dash and it didn’t leave anything behind I was afraid I might have marks left behind it didn’t happen because it comes in packets you could probably have one in your glove box to have to keep your dash tidy and doesn’t kick up the dust in the air so I think the super clean is also actually pretty cool as far as the to high-tech gadgets goes those are completely non-essential just decorative pieces for your car but some people really like that the mood lights were a bit disappointing because the remote control did not work as they didn’t work for several other people who commented on Amazon that’s a bit of a disappointment because it would’ve been nice to be able to set different lights in there but overall I still think it’s pretty cool even without the remote the coasters are also an interesting look but if you put something that’s not a clear bottle in there they mostly get covered up so that’s another thing that depends on how you use it whether you’re gonna find it very useful or not actually they’re not really useful there they serve no purpose but to just look cool in your car do you think they look cool you’re probably going to like them now as far as the car mattress goes there’s gonna be plenty of people out there that see that to say I have absolutely no use for an item like that but there will be people out there that see it and think that’s exactly what I need I do think it works but I was not a fan of the inflation process because it was difficult for me to get the air in there remove the nozzle and close it in time for how the air to come out so I had it’s kind of a learning process to get that right you have to kind of do a quick switch I’m also not a big fan of the material on there that’s just a personal preference but I really think that the mattress did work so I can’t really fault it for anything there have you guys used any of these card gadgets tell me what you think in the comments below please follow my social profiles for progress pictures videos as I go and please subscribe for more product abuse to me James White the freaking of these [Music]
