Dick DeBartolo, The Giz Wiz

Episode 1483 (1:57:14)

Dickie D is back. This time with a selfie stick with it's own built in LED light. The Mpow Selfie Stick provides a wide-angle LED light with low, medium and high brightness adjustment modes. In the back there's a convenient mirror so you can see how you look before the camera goes off. Built into the handle is a 1500mAh battery. It's charged via amicro USB charger cable which may not get in the package. But any tech person has a lot of them laying around. The company says the battery provides about 72 hours of LED fill light time, 30 hours of Bluetooth connection time on a single charge. (They don't specify if that is using them at the time.) It fits smartphones with a width between 1.8 to 3.3 inch. I used it with a Galaxy Note 4 with no problem. It's 7.3" fully closed and can be extended to 33.9 inches. And finally, the mount at the top of the selfie stick can be positioned at any point through 270 degrees to allow a variety of shooting angles from traditional selfies to above-crowd shots. The package should include the Selfie Stick, USB Charging Cable & Carry Bag, plus instructions. As I read in the reviews it seems some people get instructions (a tiny sheet) and some get a charging cable, which I didn't. $20.99 as of 4/25/18 and the rose color one was $19.99 on 4/23/18, but jumped to $28.88 on 4/25/18. There is what is probably the same selfie-stick on Amazon for $16.99 branded MORCREO. I opted for the Mpow because I've bought other stuff from them and found them reliable.
