Giving him a unit to "review" is very cheap cost effective, absolutely targeted advertising to your market.

If these manufacturers didn't see an uplift in sales, they wouldn't do it.
If that particular review generated even one purchase from a viewer I would be shocked . As I said before the review makes the product sound like it doesn’t work correctly. Have you watched it ?

He has no understanding of USB, but to be fair that applies to a lot of people. When you plug a standard device into a 'fast' USB, it charges at exactly the same rate as a standard USB, at the standard 5V.

If the device can handle fast charging, then it can request a fast charge rate/higher voltage. The square 'Type A' sockets can provide higher voltage of 9V or 12V if requested, and correspondingly higher powers. The USB-C sockets, with PD (Power Delivery) can do this too, and can go even higher, to 15V and 20V, and up to 5A. So something like a laptop can request up to 100W of charge.

This system uses the two extra 'data' lines in a USB plug to communicate between device and charger. But it's all backwards-compatible, so if an old steam-powered phone only wants 5V 1/2A then that's what it will get.

I made it to post #18 before I clicked the video link for a laugh - well, it wasn't funny.
This bloke and his sidekick are clearly not a good advert for any product other than children's breakfast cereals.
I'm sure some potential buyers would be immediately put off by their video review.

They have been . Myself and 2 others have been put off . I simply cannot give my hard earned money to a company who can honestly believe these cretins will help their business to grow in any way . As I stated before , this is a marketing fail .

Comes to mind . . . . . .!!!



The thing that irks me most is that these people get paid hard cash to behave like excited spaniels and talk drivel about things they know the square route of f@#k all about.

You should get a YouTube channel!!

I hate it when you find an innocent YouTuber keen to do what they enjoy, but then video by video the start promoting products - this is how I set up my bike etc etc which is just shameless advertising.....

or they get drawn into the celebrity pit, a video with so and so usually on mental health..!

I also love how off the beaten track wilderness lovers are tapping into YouTube like it's cocaine!!!

If you like the outdoors just get out there and enjoy it!

Don't make it a poodle to YouTube self promotion!!

Why on earth do these companies get clowns like this to review their products?
They literally have no idea about the product and lack even a child’s knowledge of electricity .



It’s about how many hits they get not how they present. So you could get one presenter highly knowledgable with 100 views and another with 100,000 the one with 100,000 will get a product to review the one with 100 won’t.

Just switch off the sound to adverts on your TV and you will start seeing how bananas the TV ads are. It’s good fun you see a new adverts I. A whole new light.

These things do not have to be good they just need to attract viewers.

Edited to say they have got a lot of people talking on this thread so from an advertising perspective job done ✅

Subscribers  do not see these advertisements

Out of all of them, I think Greg Virgo is knowledgeable and well worth watching. I liked his self build videos as he really went into a lot of detail. I never intend building a van but it was interesting watching his thought process.
I've actually seen his van in the flesh, it looks like a quality build in terms of its finish and materials used.
