    Dick's Gadget Warehouse & How to Submit Your Viewer Video.

    This week's viewer video arrived with this email: 

    Hi Dick & Chad:

     

    I love the show. My family & I watch you guys all the time, & my husband either buys many of the gadgets you show on your show, or you show a gadget my husband already has, like the Hot Dog toaster.

     

    This is my first gadget video, & I am doing it because its such an interesting idea, & because you guys are animal lovers, I thought you guys would actually like the gadget for yourselves. Hope you like the video:

    Thank you. Ivette Zelaya

     

    Here's a link to 10 sellers of this product on Amazon, but now the price seems to be $14.95: http://amzn.to/2x3apzF

    *************************************************

     

    We’re looking for more Viewer Videos!

     

    We’d love to include your video in an upcoming Giz Wiz Show, so here's what we're looking for! Your home shot video – 2 to 3 minutes long, in any of the following categories:

     

    I bought a piece of crap: Did you buy something you ended up hating? We won't get you a refund, but we might be able to give a platform to vent your disappointment. Remember, "family friendly" language applies.

    -

    I invented this! Did you invent something? (Or did a friend or relative invent something.) We can't market it for you, but we can help get the word out. Show us what it is, and how it works. Even if it's a prototype, you can get our (and the audience) reactions. No professional ads please.

    -

    My Gadget Warehouse: Okay, so you don't have a warehouse. It doesn't matter. Just tell us about your favorite old gadget(s). When and where you bought it, and why you're still hanging on to it.

    -

    My Favorite Gadget (favorite old, or favorite new): Show us what it is, tell us what it does and why you love, or loved it! It can be a new gadget you just bought too.

    -

    Post them on YouTube and send us the link! We'll do the rest. (Or possibly nothing, but that's unlikely.) Remember, videos should be just 2 to 3 minutes long! Low production value is fine, but we should be able to hear you and see you! If we select and show your video on The Giz Wiz you’ll a tiny amount of fame (hopefully), an autographed MAD magazine and a 35-year-old Alfred E. Neuman picture. So that's one more (so-so) reason to send in your video!

     

    IMPORTANT: We'll just shower you with praise for your video if you live outside the US or Canada since we can't afford to send stuff outside of those two places. (Thanks for understanding.)

     

    All show submissions go to mail@gizwiz.tv

    Subject: But disposable power banks still exist!

     

    I was curious when I saw #1640 if anybody still makes these, and it looks like a number of companies make them! Some even come in festive packaging

    If you search for disposable power bank you come up with a ton of different styles.
