Tests and reviews by Sir Apfelot

I like to try out power banks, unicycles, photo cameras, drones, headphones, speakers and other gadgets and then report on my blog. Here you can find a collection of all of my reviews.

In addition to my personal reports, I also occasionally write about the test results from Stiftung Warentest or other renowned publications.
