17 Things i bought from aliexpress today

Hello, here im going to list 16 things i bought from Aliexpress today. Although by the time i have finished this article it will probably be tomorrow. So technically i bought them yesterday……

I have genuinely purchased all of these and I will be making individual articles and videos for every item once they have arrived so keep an eye out for those on my YouTube channel

Mini Camera SQ8 Micro DV Camcorder With Night Vision

Mini Camera SQ8 Micro DV Camcorder Night Vision
No one will see this hidden little camcorder

Want one? Mini DV Spy camcorder

I bought this without a memory card so it only cost me $9.73. Im not expecting anything magical from this little thing but i don’t need it to be the best in the business i just need it to catch my son not brushing his teeth in the morning so i can kick his ass. And i think it will be quality enough for the job. Watch out for the video on my channel to see how it works out. I actually bought this one on the 21st but added it here anyway.

This has since arrived. The instructions were so poor that i made a video manual.

Don’t live in fear Dwarf hunting skull knife

Is the area you live in plagued with evil Dwarfs? Get yourself a survival knife from Aliexpress and defend yourself. To be serious im not sure you can class a 6cm blade as being hunting worthy but these knives from Aliexpress are cheap and fun to collect. I’ll have a section on my YouTube channel just for the knives i buy from Aliexpress.

This has since arrived and i made an article for it here

UR SUGAR Rainbow Holographic Nail Polish

Make your finger nails all glittery

Check out: Holographic Nail Polish

My wife is a hairdresser and a nail technician. She pays a wholesale price of £15+ ($20) for a 7.5ml bottle of nail gel from a company called Alan Howard. Obviously when i saw how cheap it is on Aliexpress i had to get a bottle for her to try out. She is super professional so if its not good stuff i will let you know. But if it is as good as the gel she buys then maybe there is a profitable opportunity there.

Carabiner clip Knife

Use it as a fruit knife

Check it out: Carabiner clip Knife

Another knife i bought from Aliexpress. Nothing special really, I’ll use this one as a fruit knife most probably.

USB LED Lamp Strip

LED lights brighten up your living room

Have a look: LED light strips from Aliexpress

I was never a fan of this idea to be honest. Not sure why, it just wasn’t my thing and im fully aware its not a new thing. But now i have a newborn baby (5 days old) i think he would be intrigued by the bright LED lights. I got a 2m long strip which i hope is long enough for my TV. Cost me just short of $5.

Carved GodFather Music Box

Godfather Musical crank box

Get yours: The Godfather Music Box Aliexpress

This is an interesting little thing that i cant wait to arrive. I hope it plays the actual theme tune from The Godfather otherwise i wouldn’t see the point. I think it will because the seller says there are 30 style music themes which i guess means its gonna play what i expect it to. I will let you know on my channel when it arrives.

This has since arrived – watch the video below:

Gallium 99.99 Low Melting Point Metal

Gallium has a low melting point

Have a look: Pure Gallium from Aliexpress

I’ll be honest, i don’t know much about this stuff, i just saw the pictures and thought it was cool so bought it. I believe its similar to aluminium and has a very low melting point which allows you to mess around with it and have some fun. According to the listing you get a free mold to create one of those items you see in the image above. If you want to learn more about Gallium click this link

12V Automotive Car Battery Tester

Car battery tester from Aliexpress

Check your car battery: 12V Car Battery Tester Aliexpress

I Had battery problems recently and had to borrow a battery tester to check whether i had full charge or not and to see if the alternator was faulty. Turns out it was a faulty starter motor instead which led to a lot of trying to start the engine which drained the battery. Although it wasn’t a fault with the battery it’s still a very useful tool for future.

This has since arrived and i made a video testing it.

AK47 Gun Shaped Pocket Folding Knife

Gun shaped Knife Aliexpress

Get one: AK47 Knife

I like this one and it will be a cool addition to the collection. Its listed as looking like an AK47 but im not sure it does? Not that it matters, it looks like a gun in any case. Has a little torch on top too. Not a bad little knife costing nearly $3. We’ll see how the quality is when it arrives.

This has since arrived and i made a video for it:

MOTO Cross Bike Technic Style Build

Get one: Technic motorbike Aliexpress

I Love toys like this, they allow you to escape the world for a while. Judging by the pictures this is a decent size bike which is awesome. Cost me around $12 which i think is a bargain. You can watch me build it on YouTube when it arrives.

Edit: It did arrive and i built it which was super fun. The quality is amazing.

Something else i got to use on my baby is one of these clay cast thingys. Again these are perfect as gifts for grandma and grandpa and other family members. I’ll let you know how these turn out in a video once they arrive.
