BUY ONE HERE! (As Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases)

This is the Ion8 metal water bottle - a great gift idea for kids, for him, for her, for them!
It's a refillable metal water bottle (aren't they all reusable?!) and my favourite one is in pink.
It has a cleanable flip-top lid and metal body with carrying hook and I use mine every single day. My kids take their metal water bottle every day to school and they are extremely durable. You can get one yourself from Amazon on the links above!

What is my favourite metal refillable water bottle?
Aren't all that... aren't all water bottles refillable?!
Should I do that again?
What is my favourite metal water bottle?
it's this one! 
it's the ion8 - let me turn it around so you can see all the packaging that it comes in 
there you go - the ion 8 leak proof metal water bottle 

it comes in other colours I got one of these for my daughter 
this isn't hers because I like the colour so much that I bought a second one in pink and I’ve also got a grey one for the Son, in gunmetal grey 
this is fantastic and it's got a flip top lid look 
I’ve got a second camera so we'll take it down to here 

I like this bottle so much and I’ve made some other videos on my channel of refillable cups for coffees 
so we've got the frank green cup... and the stojo cup... 
these videos do really well because there isn't much online where you can actually see in video what the actual bottle looks like so I thought I’d make this video for my water bottle 
is it a water bottle? 
didn't they used to be called canteens?
but you can see it's metal 

I’m going to unbox it or unwrap it for you right here right now but let me show you what comes on the packaging now 
I can re-- hold it up to here can't I 
but anyway you can refill it 
can't all bottles do that and then we've got no leaks 
it's food safe - now this is why I wanted to get a metal bottle 
the... the plastic ones we've got are okay but you know how you get the water starts tasting like used plastic 

that started to get to me and also all the plastic bottles I’ve got are really big 
so I couldn't get it into my coat pocket 
this fits amazingly well 
it's a bit taller than a coke can and it stores 400ml of liquid 
I think you're only meant to use water I only use water and it says you hand wash it so don't put it in the dishwasher basically 
this grip up here is rubberized 

I’ve been using it all week so it might not be totally clean sorry about that 
there's a flip top holder so you can put that on a hook or hold it like that 
that goes up and down 

this ring here is... is rubberized - it's like a rubberized grip and the flip top lid as you can see is clear 
and here's where the magic happens there's a lock here 
so if you don't want it to open in your bag or your pocket that's what this lever does 
and if I pull it down you can now press the button where-- it went a bit quicker than I’d hoped and it just flips like that 

let me try again 
the kids absolutely love it but I think I love it more 
the drinking spout is really generous and it's just literally an open hole 
I’ll open it up for you in a second 
this stopper stops the air hole... it blocks the air hole there and I think these might be removable which I’ll try it 

I’m going to destroy my cup 
there we go 
these are removable for washing and the same with this stopper here 
and you have to excuse me I’ve got some drink in here 
but it's just plain metal 
it feels like steel 

by the way if you want to buy this bottle there's a link in the description and as an affiliate amazon shower me with money in commission if you buy using that link so thanks if you if you do buy one from the link in the description 
I just think it's the right size for me 

I think it's wasted on the kids but the kids absolutely love it 
there's something really substantial with this 
it does take a bashing it... it can take it well 
although this one is brand new 
let's unwrap it 

I’ll take the collar off 
so the solid colour I’ve chosen is pink and there are different prices for different colours 
the size in ounces is 13oz and you can get it in black, aqua, blue, green, gray, pink purple and red 
the colour goes all the way to the bottom 

I think I’m going to engrave my name there should I make a video about that shouldn't I and it's a really simple screw top lid on the top there 
oh no I’ve leaked on the desk 
inside the lid there's uh like a removable rubber ring around the top to stop it leaking 
I’ll just screw it on like this

If this video is helping why not say hello in the comments - be lovely to hear from you but if you're feeling even more awesome if you hit the subscribe button you never have to watch any of my videos ever again but if we hit 1000 subscribers YouTube pay us for these videos so thanks so much if you can help us out that way

How much I earn on YouTube at 4K SUBS! My YouTube revenue Sept 2021



This is how much money YouTube pays me at 4000 subscribers this month!
I go through all my tabs on the YouTube Studio app: including Reach, Audience, CTR (Click through Rate) and my RPM (revenue per thousand - how many dollars per 1000 views)
I also take a peek at my views and subscribers on my other channels:

How much I earn at 4K SUBS! My YouTube revenue Sept 2021



TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

hello welcome back to the happy hut 
I’ve come outside because the weather's not terrible for a moment 
but I’m going to show you everything that I earn on this YouTube channel 
I’m going to have all the stats on screen here 
we're going to be going through my click-through rate, my RPM - that's how much YouTube pay me per 1000 views I’m going to show you which videos are doing well 
and I’m also going to take a peek at my three new YouTube channels which might be a terrible idea um so I’m not sure if I’ll even leave this bit of the intro in the video 
but I’ve also got some stats to see how close I am to not getting 1000 subscribers or 4000 hours of watch time on those to get monetized 
but anyway this channel is monetized and it's the place where I try to help high achieving creators and performers just like you - high five - to get ideas out of your head and out onto here on YouTube to make the world happy 
but this video is about making the world money 
so this feels slightly vulnerable to... to show you everything on my mobile device I mean I’m in the UK so we call it a mobile 
“mobile!” 
but here's the app right here on the screen 
as you can see I have 4174 subscribers thank you to each and every one of you hint 
you also get an overview of how the channel's doing and as you can see on my analytics, my watch time is down to 600 hours roughly - 21000 views 
subscribers by 135 so far in the last 28 days and I’m doing about $100 a month 
and this is why this is why I haven't done this video for a while 
I was making these videos where I go through how much I earn every single month but as you can see on screen right here my revenue has taken a complete dive 
and there's a reason for that 
if you're regular on the channel you'll know that I removed half of my videos 
guess what! 
it removed about half of my revenue but some of my best earners weren't niche 
I wanted to niche this channel to help high achieving creators and performers just like you - high five - so I took away all my gardening videos and all of my UK specific things 
they've gone to another channel and I might go through that channel in a moment 
that's my latest video which is doing very well on the average few duration 
if you scroll down on the app it shows you the last three videos and some comments 
but there's some very kind comments there that could have been a lot worse couldn't it 
let me dive into analytics 
I’m going to click on “view more” 
in the last 48 hours - this is pretty regular I get about 1500 views and these are my top videos 
you can see my top video is how to link your YouTube channel to other channels 
but I’ll skip back and just go into more detail on some of the other channel level statistics 
so I’m getting about 600 hours a month if I open up the timescale to the last 90 days it's pretty much the same 
and if I open that up to the year you can see that big drop 
that big drop there ding! 
is where I unlisted and moved all of my videos that are not about making YouTube videos 
I’ve moved them onto another channel the links are in the description if you want to take a look at them but you can see the effect on my watch time it's pretty much halved my watch time 
and if I pull up the lifetime statistics for my channel well it doesn't even make sense does it because I’ve been running this channel since about 2009 
so if I scroll over and just look at the last few years - so just when I was monetized you can see I had a crazy spike in March 2020 
let's open it up I’m just pinching the app graph with my fingers 
so you can see that really strange peak which was for a video that's not very niche and then a trough and then the channel started doing very well assuming... 
wow we've got some military helicopters going over now it's because I’m sharing the good stuff with you! 
it's time for a drink 
Oh dear it's the local air ambulance that kind of puts things in perspective 
if you think your channel is doing bad well just cheer yourself up with the thought that you're not using an air ambulance today I guess 
There was a time when I was getting 10 subscribers a day that's probably nearer five subscribers and it's been like that for this year 
if I put in the last 365 days that's what I’m doing on the subscribers 
what do you think are your statistics like this 
leave a comment I’d love to hear how your channel is doing 
now my estimated revenue which unfortunately is pretty accurate 
I’m getting about 100 dollars a month and again that is since I removed the videos 
if I pinch to open up you can see I was doing about twelve dollars - eight to twelve dollars a day 
now that's just tanked to something really low that spike there is from a very kind friend dropping 20 dollars into a super chat and it really stands out but this is pretty much how much revenue I get a day 
so in the last year I’m really grateful for this - I’ve pulled in $2000 
I’m hoping that the revenue will go up in the run up to Christmas so I’m in September 2021 at the moment I’m really hoping that we might be doing more than we - I might be doing more than $100 a month 
so the last 28 days the the nice little pictures have gone but you can see the titles so my top video is about featured channels 
that's how to add other channels to your channel so you get a little list of channels on your featured channels tab 
if I go into the analytics for the video you can see that the average view duration for my top video on my channel right now is one minute and eight seconds that's... 
that's not quite so helpful I wish it were longer but the views are insane 
It has clocked up 20000 views in what, two thirds of the year?
so that's good I’ll click on go to video analytics using the app we can deep dive into how this video is performing 
so I get about 90 watch hours 
pulls in 44 subscribers a month that's good 
can you see along the top of the page there on my app it says overview 
so I’ll scroll across to reach 
and wow the click-through rate on this video is 16% which is really good 
I think my channel average is about 8% 
now this is the percentage of viewers who click on this video based on being served a thumbnail 
so the thumbnail and the title clearly doing doing the business and most of my traffic is coming from YouTube search 88% 
and I’ll scroll down even further to those external sources so 60% comes from google search and you can also see your top YouTube search terms 
these are the search terms uh leading to people coming to my channel 
but the percentages are quite low 
the highest percentage is how to add channels to our YouTube channel 
this is new on the app on the YouTube studio app 
I can also see the top videos which have suggested viewers to come to my video and if I click on this - I don't understand why it lists THIS video as the top source suggesting this video 
I’m guessing maybe this indicates how many people come directly to this video 
the next best referrer is this one here how to add feature channels this is a tutorial - this is someone else's tutorial video 
two percent have come from one of MY videos about changing your YouTube name 
and it actually refers me to that video which is useful 
piggy meme review has brought two percent of my videos suggesting this! 
should we have a look? 
okay this meme here yeah your piggy 
uh okay now I’ve already seen that I have no I have no idea why so it's interesting 
I’m not sure it's actually that useful it's helpful to see where your viewers are coming from but I’m not sure that enables me to do anything with that information 
if you disagree please leave me a comment I might be missing something there 
audience retention that nose dive there can you see that big dip in the graph 
that is because that's the part of the video I’ve basically told the viewer what they've come to hear 
and it's doing 96.7% likes that's nice 
the audience for this video happens to be 82% male and weirdly 100% between that age bracket I... I don't want to question YouTube statistics but that seems very strange and not very likely 
the top geography is the united states which is good because united states viewers pay the most as you might already know if you're monetized 
let's go to the revenue 
this is what you want to see isn't it 
for that one video I’m getting about $18 a month 
the rpm - this is how much YouTube pays me per 1000 views for this one video so it pays me about four dollars per 1000 views 
it's a short video 
I find if my videos are longer than eight minutes the revenue per 1000 views is so much higher 
let's compare this now to how my overall channel is doing 
so back onto my channel analytics 
we still have the tabs along the top, so I’m going to scroll over to reach 
reach shows you where your viewers come from 
so impressions is how many thumbnails are served basically 
and if I compare that for the year my impressions have halved as a result of removing half of my videos 
my click-through rate (CTR) as you might already know the click-through rate is what percentage of your viewers are clicking on your thumbnails 
but my click-through rate if anything has gone up in the last year not by a lot but you can see it was dithering at around six percent and now it's dithering at between six and nine percent 
so that's a good sign for me I think that tells me that it was a good thing to niche my channel 
my click-through rate has gone up 
not that I’m seeing that in in money terms yet but... 
but I’m glad the ctr has gone up there 
overall for my channel I get about 50% of my views come from YouTube search and about 30% come from external 
I have been putting my videos onto my blog which I think is a really good idea I think that's really worked well for me 
I think it helps with with google search and I think it helps refer viewers to me from the blog 
I also tweet out my videos 
I put them on Facebook and LinkedIn as well but I think if anything that might be harming my views 
I think they click through the video through curiosity so they're not actually there to watch the whole video 
they just want to see it because they've seen it on their feed 
so for me putting videos out on social media I don't think works very well 
the top video suggesting my content?
you can see now what other videos on YouTube are referring viewers to your channel 
but I’m not sure there's anything that I can do about affecting this 
so I’m not sure how useful it is 
let's go over to engagement 
no let's not go over to engagement 
you want to see the money don't you 
show me the money! 
so for my channel revenue I’m getting $101 for the last 28 days 
if I compare that with the last 90 days pretty much the same 
last year it's tanked it is really tanked since I removed those videos 
let's go back 
I don't want to look at this anymore 
my rpm that has stayed at channel level - that's stayed pretty much the same for the year so around the six dollar level 
overall my lifetime rpm is $2.55 
but I think that includes the time from when I was monetized before and YouTube removed monetization from anyone who had under a thousand subscribers 
but if it... if it is of use or interest you can see how my rpm has fluctuated 
and you can see that really nice hump from September to Christmas last year 
the rpm does go up from six dollars the around nine or ten dollars 
I’m really hoping that that will happen again this year 
fingers crossed 
what's your rpm? 
let me know in the comments below 
I’d love to know how my rpm compares with everyone else's obviously 
that's probably why you're watching this video 
these are my top earning videos 
it's not a very pretty screen but the featured channels is pulling in $18 
there's a huge drop to the next level of videos 
I’ve got a tutorial on how to fast-forward and rewind videos on YouTube that's five dollars a month 
oh this video I made years ago when my kids were really young and drawing all over the car - that video is still pulling in three dollars a month which I’m delighted by that's amazing that something I made about six years ago is now bringing in three dollars a month! 
it's wonderful isn't it YouTube? 
my brain at the moment as a YouTube creator is to just keep making videos because the more videos I put out then the more videos I’ve got out there pulling in one or two dollars a year 
obviously it's not enough to live on but in my brain I’m still thinking off I could just make two videos a week then I’ll always be increasing my revenue by one or two dollars a month for each video! 
so say I made 10 videos I mean that could be 10 or 20 dollars a month that my income increases 
and then of course I hit I hit a wall and then I see the futility of it just think what's the point because you know you can't live on a hundred dollars per month in a in a western economy 
I don't know where in the world you're watching you might be watching on another continent and this might actually look like a lot of money to you 
and if it is good luck - let me know in the comments 
I’m going to keep going because I’m learning so much from these experiments here on YouTube 
I’ve spread out my experiment now so what I’m doing now is making three other channels 
I wonder if I can pull them up here 
now some of these channels are dead some of them are very active 
so I’ve got a travel channel Neil’s trains and stops that's at 93 subscribers 
I’ve got my dad delivers vlog which I think is my favourite channel at the moment 
that's on 400 subscribers 
and my ikea dad channel is on nearly 180 subscribers 
so Dad delivers is where it's at and I think I’ve stopped making videos so frequently on this channel to try and get some more videos on that channel 
should we go in oh I’m just gonna make this video long 
there's a little sneak peek on how I’m doing on dad delivers I’m going to make a whole video about this I think and I’m going to show you how many views I’m getting on this other channel 
it's almost the same amount of views and watch time I’m getting on this channel but obviously it's not monetized yet 
if I could get this other channel monetized that could double my revenue to 200 dollars a month which would be great 
it's taking so long 
the number of subscribers 
I only get about one and a half subscribers a day on that channel so it would take me another two years to hit a thousand subscribers 
I’ve hit the 4000 hours watch time because the videos are good 
I know they're good because they worked on my other channel before I removed them 
let's dive in here yeah I’m getting like 600 hours a month and on my lifetime for this channel I’ve hit the 4000 hours easily 
it's just the subscribers and the problem with that channel is that the... the videos do really well on search there are lots of how to's you know how to change a line on a strimmer, which they do really well on search and people watch them and think thank you very much that's ALL I needed to know and move on 
it's not so good for gaining subscribers 
so I think my plan with that channel is to make it a bit more personal 
try and make videos that people would might want to come back to 
I’ll cover all of that on the other video and I’ll put that video on screen now and in the description 
but if you have any questions leave them in the comments below 
I hope this video helps and right here is what YouTube thinks you'd love to watch next 
good luck with your channel let me know how your channel is doing I’d love to know!

My morning routine + journey into work, back home in Camden Town London



Taking you on my journey into work... you lucky thing... to Camden Town, London... then back home again. During The Rona.
That's all there is to this video. 
Via South Western Railway and the Northern Line tube.

My morning routine + journey into work, back home in Camden Town London



TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

good morning this is how my day starts at the moment 
it's 7:30 and my train is due in at about 7:45 
I’m not going in every day and the way our trains work in our country means that means I’ve got to get a small mortgage out to pay for the single ticket 
it's about £30 into London and then I’ll get a reduced rail card fare for the way home 
I must remember to get that ticket!
Made it onto the platform - time to get the train hello I’m Neil...
[TANNOY ANNOUNCEMENT] Guildford for the AirBus
Hello I’m Neil, welcome back to the channel if you're new here especially big welcome 
today is a bit of an unusual video usually I help high achieving creators and performers just like you to get ideas out here onto YouTube but I haven't been posting very much for the last few weeks and I wanted to make a video about why why that is 
I thought I’d do that by making a video about my daily routine at the moment 
I’m... I’m doing some work in London so I thought I’d take you along with me for that journey the first thing I’ve got to do is to get into London 
so it's 7:45, the train's on time it's always a good thing 
I like to go on the back carriage because it's usually quiet but I don't if you can see the whole train is quiet anyway! 
you use my knuckles obviously
The government advice at the moment is to work from home for the next two weeks at least uh till the 19th of July so we've got a really nice nice clean quiet train
[MUSIC]
I do my morning pages every single day for half an hour and there's no getting out of it even though I’m on the train 
except thanks to the face mask when my glasses steam up! 
[MUSIC]
[TANNOY: See it, say it, sorted]
I still can't believe how empty these platforms are these are really major stations and usually before the Rona, these platforms would be absolutely heaving with passengers
[MUSIC]
After the writing, I’ve been reading typing and tearing out 13 pages which is pretty good for this session but I’ve got to go through all of these pages at some stage
[MUSIC]
As we head into London I’m walking to the front of the train to get there just that little bit quicker 
I guess it's my morning exercise and the trains being held at some signals on the way into Waterloo station
[MUSIC]
[TANNOY: Platform 15 on the left hand side]
Finally we get into the London Waterloo a little late some things never change and you can see that in my eyes just how happy and grateful I look for this service 
so it's 8:57 made it to Waterloo 
time to go on the tube now over to Camden Town
[MUSIC]
[TANNOY ANNOUNCEMENT]

I’m going to mention this a few times now so sorry about this 
but when I was a school kid and 11 years old I used to make this same tube journey every day until I was 16... except in the opposite direction
[MUSIC]
And it's still really weird being back at Camden Town station 
I remember bounding down the escalators three stairs at a time to check the dot matrix indicator at the bottom there 
[MUSIC]
I’m still not used to it 
This is Camden Town and this is where I grew up 
just so happens I’m working here for the first time in the place where I grew up and I used to do that journey every morning but the other way around 
still not used to being here um it's been about 20 years since I’ve been here properly 
and I’m still not used to it being so quiet as well look at it 
I think it... I think it gets a bit busier later on but even so this I’ve never seen it like this at all 
down here is... to flip the camera... that's my old infant school I made a whole video about this I put it on screen now and in the description 
but oh my goodness it is so weird walking past my old little infant school every morning to work 
let's go down and have a look because I made that video about what's happening to it about two years ago and... get run over 
what's happening is they're knocking it down for the Camden town underground station so it will not look like this for much longer 
I think it's probably going to take a couple of years to build a new underground entrance and they're going to bulldoze this little Victorian infant school that taught me all my nursery rhymes... taught me the colours 
the reason I can do this now right now is because of that building and all my lovely teachers in it 
Hawley infants it's moved - it's closed down they're not going to bulldoze the school with the kids still in it that that would be wrong 
but it's been derelict now for about oh two three years anyway that that video is a nice video if you if you've got some time on your hands 
then I cross the bridge over there to get to the building I work in which is just opposite Camden lock market 
obviously I don't think my employers would be that happy about me filming in the office so I’ll give you some shots from the window and some uh pictures that I took from the roof 
the upside with filming here is that a lot of people get their camera out so I don't I feel like I’m blending in by filming this for you 
hello it's now about lunch time and I need to go back to do my calls to the... the united states the... the America so a bit of a rush because I’m trying to get the 1:30. It's one o'clock now let's see if I can get from Camden to Waterloo in under 30 minutes 
I don't think I’m gonna make it 
let's see if I can do this
[MUSIC]
I love it - I’m against the clock and this tube train could not go any slower if it tried 
this isn't my train!
[MUSIC]
so I’m down... I think this is the first train to Charing Cross
[MUSIC]
I know that I am in a rush because that is why the trains are running so slowly
[MUSIC]
yeah that's that's not my train
turns out this this footage right here isn't slowed down!
[MUSIC]
okay out of the tube station - now over to a ticket machine to get my network railcard ticket
[MUSIC]
okay we are on platform 14 which is just over here
[MUSIC]
wow you're bringing me luck because I have never been able to do that journey in under 25 minutes! 
I’ve managed to get here for 1:25 ready for the 1:30 so we're good 
we're good thank you London Underground - Northern Line you rock!
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
and we're home so that was quick
everything ran to time 
it's not always like that even in these uh difficult times but uh yeah I’m very grateful to the train actually making it back bang on the dot 
Can you please help my daddy get 10000 subscribers, just click on his face thanks bye! Alright this is going to be the proper one right

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

you could... you could have a Pharrell size hat on top of these 
hello welcome back to the happy hut I’m Neil and I’m sorry for the background noise right now 
we're in a really heavy thunderstorm here over the happy hut uh we're... I’ve had to come in from outside I was going to do this in the garden 
but today I am unboxing this 
it's an unboxing and first impressions review of the Audio Technica ATH M 40 X professional monitor headphones 
let me show you the other side of the box while I tell you why I’m unboxing this 
my work has issued these to me which is great because I do a lot of audio work at work but usually I use these my urbanears plattan 2 gorgeous headphones 
I love the bass response on these and they are so comfortable and I’ve got all my urbanears Plattan 2 videos in the description but this is quite a big upgrade and I got giddy with excitement when I got this in my hands 
the first thing I wanted to do was to make an unboxing and first impressions video for you but the second reason is that Phineas Eilish, Billie Eilish's producer brother - he made a video for a GQ on the 10 things he can't live without 
and I think it was around number five were these amazing headphones that he really raved about 
turns out those headphones are the Audio Technica ATH M40X 
I’ve got a camera up above - hello - this is just going to be a really quick video just to show you what you get in the box 
I’ve wanted to open these for about three days 
oh nice and then in this triangular box there's some leads and things 
you get a really nice pouch case with Audio Technica embossed on it 
and it's like a drawstring pouch but look we'll come to all of this in a moment because you want to see these 
oh look at that 
oh oh there's more stuff under there! 
there's a bag for each ear cup 
now what I’m concerned about most is the weight and how these will feel when they are wearing it 
because these feel like nothing but obviously I don't think these will have the audio quality of these 
let me show you the cups and the stitching that's all nice isn't it 
and then as you can already see the cups are completely flexible 
you can turn them inside out swivel them up down 
the clicks you can hear the clicks as they click into place 
Oh gone too far around! I’ve broken them I’ve broken them already! 
Phineas I’ve broken your headphones! 
oh right so so basically they flip this way and that's why I can't turn them around 
it's like I’m using headphones for the first time isn't it 
there's a huge Audio Technica logo 
the finish as I’m sure you've seen on other reviews the... the materials are plastic it's plasticky 
the advantage of that is they are lighter than they would be with other materials to put them on wow and I... I can't hear anything in the room right now I can't hear the rain that's hammering down on the roof 
you can see it has ATHM40X embossed on the side but these extend let me pull them out the full way for you 
wow that's huge so you could probably get that on a very big bobble hat if you are DJing 
playing some form of guitar 
obviously they've got the mickey mouse kind of size there 
you could you could have a Pharrell size hat on top of these so I’ll push them back in because my head is big but not quite that big 
and it very firmly... I think you can only wear them one way round so this is the right and this is the left 
like that if I wear them the other way around like I do all the time with my urbanears it's the wrong way around as you can see 
so let's see what else is in the box because obviously they're not cordless so back in  the box underneath this cup here are lots and lots of leads 
right this looks like the 3.5mm jack obviously but if I hold it up to the camera where you can probably see that underneath the jack there... there is it's like a locking mechanism set into the plug there 
and there's a normal 3.5mm jack with a thread there for an adapter 
let's check out the other leads 
and this is the same kind of deal so that you have a 3.5mm jack to connect to the headphones with that locking mechanism on the jack plug there and then on the other side we have the quarter inch jack with... it looks gold plated... adapter so it goes to 3.5mm but the difference as you can see you don't need me to say this out loud but I will anyway it's a curly cord that expands 
so I think I’ll probably be using these because I’m always walking off and damaging equipment by not taking the headphones off 
so that'll be really useful for when I go a wandering 
I’m so excited about this 
on the left hand cup under here hold it up - that is the port for this 3.5mm jack and I’ve got to put it in and I’ve got to find the locking mechanism 
and then I can turn it and it clicks 
so I’ve turned it clockwise, it clicks into place and that's now fixed 
let me read out the packaging while I i show you the headphones from every angle possible 
40mm drivers with rare earth magnets and copper clad aluminium or aluminum wire voice coils 
90 degrees swivelling ear cups for easy one ear monitoring 
that's what the swivelling is for 
professional grade ear pad and headband material delivers more durability and comfort 
for professional studio tracking and mixing as well as DJ monitoring 
and what I love about these already I can see you can wipe the headband clean which I can't do with my other headphones it's not an unpleasant it's... 
it's leather-like but it's not pleather 
it doesn't feel too plasticky 
it does have a nice feel and there is a slight cushion underneath the headband there so there is some comfort padding under there somehow 
let me put them on 
I can't hear you I can't hear anything 
I mean look how do you review headphones on YouTube this is just first impressions but I’m going to listen to the music that I listen to all the time which is the grandstand theme 56 minute loop
I can't play too much of this music because I will get that copyright strike 
so the first thing I can say is that they are incredibly comfortable 
the ATH M40X they feel pretty good on first... first impressions 
the bass response is phenomenal 
I can really hear the bass and the timpani of the grandstand theme yet I mean obviously these are keepers 
I’m not sure what else I can tell you if you have any questions leave them in the comments 
so the first thing I can say is that the ATH M40X are incredibly comfortable 
the padding is just right 
my ears are completely enclosed and ah the sound I... I don't know how to describe this to you but to me the bass response is phenomenal 
I can really hear the low notes of the grandstand team there I better not play too much of it because I don't want to get a copyright strike 
it sounds really rich for obviously something you would expect of headphones of at this price range 
by the way you can buy the Audio Technica ATH ATHM40X using the links in the description below 
if you do that you help me out so thank you and right here are some other things that I’ve been doing on YouTube thanks for... for coming in I hope this helps 
can you please help my daddy get 10000 subscribers just click on his face 
thanks bye all right this is going to be the proper one right?

TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

[MUSIC]
Hello welcome back to the Happy Hut if you're new to the channel 
my name's Neil I’m a tightwad dad where we try to be happy with what we've already got and today I’m trying to be happy with this 
It's the amazon basics compact ergonomic wireless mouse with fast scrolling in black 
I went for the black colour it also comes in blue purple red and silver 
this is how it arrives too I’ll come closer to the camera 
this is how it arrives fresh from amazon let's unbox this baby 
now I don't really buy many mouses - is it mouse's or mice?
but it comes in a really nice little box and this is what it looks like 
I’ll show you what it looks like actually plugged into the computer in a moment 
and if you've not bought a wireless mouse before this is how it works 
basically a little dongle thing - this is the wireless thing that you plug into your computer as a USB receiver you put that into a USB port 
but it's a nice touch apart from the nice cardboard box and instruction manual is it looks like it comes with an amazon basics AA battery 
it doesn't feel that expensive but it doesn't feel that cheap either so that's good 
let's put the battery in and then to turn it on there is a on off switch on the bottom here 
ready to do some mouse action 
I’ll give you some more close-ups while we plug it into the pc 
okay so I’ve read a bit of the instructions there's already two clever things with this mouse 
the first is this hole here in the bottom is actually a storage compartment for the receiver because of the ridged edge of the receiver that's what keeps it in that hole there 
and the other clever thing is this button here looks like a fast forward button this is actually the thing that activates fast scrolling - whatever that is - when you're scrolling on the scroll wheel 
it's got a left button and a right button 
it's got a blinking LED to show that it's in action on the side here 
there's a forward button and a backward button that you can use with your thumb while you're holding the mouse 
I’ve come out of the sun and into the happy hut to plug this in 
it could not be easier just get your usb port and plug in the wireless receiver like this and instantly as soon as I start moving the mouse the mouse moves around the screen 
I don't know if I can get this on camera where is it there I don't think see this is the other youtube channel that I run 
I don't know if you can see the cursor is just flicking up and down 
wow this feels really good obviously you can go into your windows settings if it's moving a little fast for you which it actually is because the mouse I had before is tiny 
from I think that might have been from poundland - the dollar store here in the UK  
by the way there's a link to this mouse in the description if this is the wireless mouse that you're after 
okay so just figured out what the default forward and backward buttons do on the mouse it actually takes your browser forward and backwards 
so using these forward and backward buttons on the side here is exactly the same as hitting forward and backward on the browser 
I’m finding it really smooth on screen and in my hand it's just really comfortable 
I mean it's going to be really comfortable after I’ve spent so long on a tiny mouse 
the way that you can grip it just feels so much more comfortable it feels like I’ve got more control 
but big question will it work on my MacBook pro 
let's give it a go and I’ll put the USB receiver into the side of my MacBook pro 
whoa yeah it's working instantly 
it is working really smoothly not that I thought that it wouldn't let's see if I could do some video editing with it
and this is working just as well with my mac as it was with my pc my windows pc 
so if it's not clear enough already the amazon's basics wireless mouse ergonomic mouse is an absolute hit 
I’m going to... it's a keeper I’m going to keep this 
if this video is helping why not hit the thumbs up button that will really help someone else to find this video and if you're feeling even kinder why not hit the subscribe button you don't have to watch any of my videos ever again but I’m trying to get to 1000 subscribers to get the money - the coin - from YouTube at no extra cost to use so if you're feeling awesome thanks so much for hitting that button and good luck with your amazon basics wireless mouse

FREE STUFF from LIDL? Spin of Surprises Haul from Lidl Plus app!



This is a bit of an extreme experiment for the channel: Spinning the Lidl Spin of Surprises, on the Lidl Plus app FIVE times... here's what happens next!

FREE STUFF from LIDL? Spin of Surprises Haul from Lidl Plus app!



TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

usually I play this in the in the line at the checkouts oh I’ve won 
hello welcome back to the happy Hut 
I’m Neil this is the dad delivers channel we're we're outside it's night time night is setting in but before I go to bed I thought I’d try a little experiment here on the channel 
I’ve got the the Lidl plus app right here and I don't know if you have the Lidl plus app but if I scroll up you can see we've completed coupon plus 
we managed to do that in about seven days flat uh that resets every month 
but what I wanted to try and share with you was the joy that is Lidl's spin of surprises 
I thought that you could enjoy the roller coaster of excitement that I need to move to one side and so you can see it on screen here so you can play along with me you can play along at home and we'll see what the spin of surprises holds for us today 
now the weird thing with the spin of surprises is that Lidl don't actually tell us what the top prize is so I thought if I video this and share it with the world that I’d actually capture the moment where I win something on the Lidl spin of surprises 
so let's let's just dive straight in I hit the green button 
usually I play this in the in the line at the checkouts oh I’ve won! 
wow okay so this is this is good you're bringing me good luck thank you 
but we have got rivercote crackers 
I don't know what they are 
it looks like you can put cheese on them so that's good it doesn't say what type of crackers and of course Lidl have all of their fake brands don't they 
so rivercote - it's not just any old crackers they're rivercote crackers so that's fantastic and I’ve got to buy them within seven days as well so better save that coupon 
I only have four more Lidl’s spin of surprises let's go for the one that ends tomorrow and we'll hit that green button 
oh what's it gonna be I was gonna say only play this when I’m in the checkout queue 
oh that's no good sorry you didn't win this time we'll dive straight back in three more chances left 
I’m sure Lidl are going to top the rivercote packet of cracker I don't even know how many crackers I don't need to know this is just non-stop surprise entertainment 
oh that was so close that was so close sorry you didn't win this time 
we have two spin of surprises 
do you think we're gonna win on this one 
let's take a look we'll open it up
it's a good job I’m doing it here and not in the checkout queue 
oh man we can't go out on the rivercote crackers 
can you see it suddenly got really dark 
almost echoing the darkness of the of the Lidl app 
let's go for the last one 
this is going to be the one I know it here we go hit that green button
oh oh oh yes we did it high five ah we've had this before fantastic it's not a chocolate hazelnut croissant 
it's half a chocolate hazelnut croissant 
so does that make it a hazelnut croissant 
fifty percent off 
uh maybe I could get footage of me choosing the chocolate hazelnut croissant 
I don't know if it's -- are there... just chocolate ones and chocolate hazelnut 
I just think there's just one type of croissant there 
and are there any left 
I don't know because I’m recording this separately 
but this is me filming myself choosing the croissant 
putting the croissant in the bag 
I use my hands I don't know about you but the tongs surely we've reversed things so that holding the tongs probably isn't the most hygienic thing to do right now Lidl 
and it's either that or the plastic bags that you put your hands in but that's going to destroy the planet and we haven't even got any of those in our store anyway so manhandling my chocolate hazelnut croissant there it is on the conveyor belt today is a win today is a good day before the sun sets 
so here's my half a croissant 
I feel very proud it's a very proud day
I... I know no! 
it's my croissant! 
I didn't bother buying the crackers maybe I should 
there's the crackers 
where's the crackers there they are 
I don't know it's not even I don't even get the crackers for free 
it's 30 pence off the rivercote crackers I think we'll just leave that on the shelf there 
there they are rivercote crackers 
the booby prize the the runner up prize that's how I roll 
I can just leave 30 pence on the table on the app 
anyway if you have any spin of surprises you want to share with me leave them in the comments and we'll do this again sometime 
by the way here's what youtube thinks you want to be watching next 
can you please help my daddy get 1000 subscribers just click on his face thanks bye how was that

BEST SAMSUNG A51 SCREEN! Spigen Samsung Galaxy A51 tempered glass protective screen



BUY ONE HERE: (As Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases) 

What is the best tempered glass screen protector for the Samsung Galaxy A51?
I think I've found it: the Spigen, 1Pack, Samsung Galaxy A51 Screen Protector, Full Coverage, 9H Tempered Glass, High-Responsiveness, Case Compatible, Anti-Fingerprint, Screen Protector
I love this one because the screen is curved, following the Samsung A 51 screen.

1:10 How to fit a tempered glass protective screen on a Samsung A51
2:00 How to avoid getting air bubbles on my phone screen protector

TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

what is the best tempered glass screen protector for this the Samsung galaxy A51 
I have fitted a few of these and I can honestly say my favourite one so far is this it's the Spigen woah, that’s a bit bright isn't it 
it's the Spigen alignmaster tempered glass screen protector for the Samsung A51 
I’m going to fit this in real time with you so you can actually see what this is like and why I think this is the best one that I’ve used so far 
it's actually for my son's phone 
this is a shot of a really bad out of focus picture 
my son dropped his phone and it did smash the glass 
he dropped it from about waist height with no screen protector on because we we've been through a few 
the biggest problem as you might know for the Samsung A51 phone is that the screen's gorgeous and it has this kind of curved edge 
and some tempered glass screen protectors actually give you like a sachet of gel to fill the gap 
you don't have to do this with the Spigen, that's the first reason but let me show you me going to the bathroom now to put this on this 
here is the Spigen tempered glass screen protector for the Samsung galaxy A51 and this is what comes inside the box 
we have a frame, some cleaning materials, a rubber I think for pressing down the screen to press out any bubbles 
all wrapped up is the actual screen itself with some instructions there and this is how the screen comes 
well that looks really smart 
really well presented 
there's a black frame around it which I know will annoy some people like my son because it's going to look like it reduces the screen size and maybe it does by a few pixels I’m not sure 
but as you can see it does go edge to edge and this looks so much more solid than some of the cheaper products 
but this isn't that expensive itself 
now to do this obviously a single spec of dust is going to completely ruin this by putting a bubble under the screen so I’m in the bathroom and I’m going to run some water 
apparently that helps get rid of some dust in the air 
I’m going to use the Spigen screen protector box as a base - a little workbench for me here 
let's open up the cleaning materials 
there are more instructions here on the technique for removing air bubbles 
oh it's called a squeegee that's what this is called it's the squeegee to get rid of the bubbles 
dust removal sticker this is what you usually get in screen protectors tempered glass screen protectors 
a nice dry microfiber cloth and a wet wipe to really give the screen a proper clean so let's do that now 
wow it's quite a generous size 
usually the ones you get in the cheaper screen protectors are a bit dried up and tiny but this is a proper wet wipe 
now I’m going to dry the screen and I’m going to use the dust removal sticker to just make sure everything's picked up
next goes on the frame guide 
that clips perfectly on the front 
wow that fits so perfectly I’ve used others - cheaper screen protectors - that not fit the phone or they fit the phone and they don't fit the actual screen protector so this is really good 
they're not paying me 
and then we're going to remove the backing which if you've used the screen protectors before that you've probably not seen a backing like this
it's rigid and then I’m going to lay it down on the guides and then follow the instructions so I’m going to press here at the top and then slide down so the middle pushes out the air bubbles 
I’m going to lift the guide frame and I’m going to press out all these air bubbles 
I don't know if they're showing up on the camera 
ah I’ve got a bit of dust there 
now the danger is you can make it a lot worse by doing this so here it goes nothing 
you don't know if the dust is on the phone or the screen 
right zapped that one that's good 
that's the next thing we're going to do is to remove this top sticker 
that's just informational really 
and then I can't see any bubbles but there are just in case there are tiny ones and just to really really super make sure that the adhesive on here spreads 
and we've got a good coverage any tiny tiny bubbles I can't see are pressed out 
so that's it I’m really really pleased with how this has gone 
I’m just going to rub off my fingerprints now 
there are no bubbles whatsoever 
what's really good with this as well apart from meeting it up to the bezel and being friendly for cases - what's really good is that there's no hole for the camera so you don't have to line it up with the camera you can just go straight over the camera and that might be something you might want to bear in mind 
maybe you do not want your screen cover over your camera but this looks like it just protects it 
and it's... you don't have to line it up 
that frame was really useful 
I’ve got this fusion clear case 
it's a cheap case but just to show you how it plays friendly with the screen protector or rather the screen protector accepts all cases that is really well covered really well protected and no bubbles 
that is a success 
there's Casper the dog! 
yeah he's giving us a woof of approval 
that is a definite definite success - well worth the money 
so the screen is on my Samsung or my son's Samsung A51 now 
it is gorgeous no bubbles I absolutely hate fitting screen protectors to phones and this works this did the job and there are no bubbles 
it looks great and what I don't think I mentioned in the bathroom was the case doesn't clash with the screen protector at all which is fantastic 
if this video is helping you can help me - I’m trying to get to 1000 subscribers that YouTube pay me for these videos please why not hit the thumbs up button or if you're feeling even more awesome the subscribe button - would be fantastic to get us one step closer to the big 1000 - and don't forget the links to this are in the description below if you want to find the same screen protector 
thanks for watching and here's another video that YouTube thinks you'd like to watch

It's a step up from our previous Flymo mow n vac, and might be useful if you're looking for the Flymo Simpliglide 300. In the video, I do the unboxing, assemble the flymo and mow the lawn. You can see how it mows over kerbstones, flag stones and railway sleepers as well as the edging.

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

hello welcome back to the channel
if I stay quiet for a moment you might be able to hear a petrol mower in the background
[PETROL MOWER NOISE] 
so I’m sorry for that noise but I don't have to deal with any of that because today I’m unboxing this
the Flymo Simpliglide 330. 
look there's some shots of me there using it later because I have time jumped
that is after I have opened the box 
let's watch some more of of me in action doing some actual gardening with the Flymo Simpliglide 
this channel used to be called the tightwad dad blog 
but that felt a bit negative even though we were trying to be happy with what we've already got 
so now it's called dad delivers and today dad delivers this Flymo Simpliglide 
oh probably shouldn't have probably should have been a bit more careful with that 
here it goes
clunk while I’m opening I’ve got my special steak knife
by the way it's not as good as the American vlogger but it's all I’ve got
maybe I’ll show you some shots of the box 
this is an electric hover non-collect lawnmower which is why we got it we wanted something to just fling around the garden or technically in my case I wanted something so that my long-suffering wife could carry on mowing the lawn without my uh assistance 
what we did with our old mower we actually took off the the box because it was just so much easier to just not have it clog up and just fling it around and let the birds collect the grass
but we didn't see too much online about what this actually looks like out of the box so I hope this video is helpful 
this is what comes in the box so we've got the handles 
we got this from amazon by the way and if you want one exactly the same as this there's there's a link in the description if you buy it from there
I get a few pennies 
amazon rain me with coin
pretty much everything you get in the box 
the main unit comes in a bag
it's really light the whole box I believe is about seven and a half kilograms I could carry it and I’m not the strongest hardest working person on youtube and the base it feels like pure plastic which I love 
it's really light I’m actually looking forward to using this it comes with this protective wrapping which goes underneath the distinctive orange case there and over on the top the logo is protected 
just like an apple product
and what I’ve already noticed which is better than my mo and vac
is that we have these nice caster rollers at the front
and underneath this was the biggest thing that we didn't know about and that's the blade
on our MowNvac we have a blade with plastic blades that rotate and we really wanted that because for our garden it's incredibly uneven I’ve got a little dog who's nine months old and really really good at digging holes that's Casper there 
just going for it
so mowing around Casper’s er Great Escape work isn't the easiest task
so I was worried about getting a metal blade but what's really strange with this is that it doesn't actually look like a blade 
so it's a block of metal but it's kind of chiselled 
it's kind of angled can you see that
so that it's a blade there 
but it doesn't feel quite as dangerous as we thought it would be 
there's a crack
can you see that there's a there's a crack there it runs all the way from the top to the bottom there 
so Flymo if you're if you're watching this we're not that impressed 
it does come well wrapped the instructions that comes with the Flymo Simpliglide 330 as you can see inevitably the instructions are really nice and oblique 
hey maybe next time you could make the writing just a little bit smaller 
just a suggestion
so I’m going to do this on camera in case it helps you and if I go wrong then you might be able to avoid my mistakes 
let's push this in there we go so the pin holds it there 
and that looks that looks really nice 
good so we've got a handle on
that's a great start 
now I didn't think I would turn this video into a how to assemble a Flymo mower
but it is 
the next thing we need to do is to put the lever handle on top of this handle and obviously you need to make sure that the button is facing upwards when you do this 
Alright so this isn't quite as complicated as I thought it would be 
so you have to line up the top handle with the bottom handle and then we're gonna have these nice tightening bolts on the outside so run the nut through here to attach the two handles together 
and you can use the nice grey tightening nut yeah you don't need to tighten it that much 
and I’ll do the same on the other side so the nut comes through the two handles and then you can put this on the outside and this will help you oh and I think this will help you dismantle it any time you want to fold it down
now thankfully in the instructions they're instructions for fitting the handles but they come attached straight 
oh there's Casper oh yeah so all I need to do now is attach the cable holder 
so I’ll put one there and I’ll put another one down here 
well I’m not sure I want it near near the blade I’m still not sure I like having the cable at the bottom when I want it over my shoulder
now with the cable clips don't make the same mistake that I did I ended up clipping the orange lead to it which makes no sense at all 
because you're then taking the power lead as close to the blades as possible these cable clips are actually for the the black cable which is really obvious now but I did it the other way 
I did it the wrong way around so if you use the clips to tidy up the black cable that goes to the motor that just clips on there perfect and then obviously you can hold this cable over your shoulder to keep it away from the blade
I think we are good to go so this is the superglide 330 looking as clean as it ever will
do before it starts the journey across the battle of the somme that is our garden
it has the design of a sports car you can tell what quality cars I drive this is the inaugural flight of the Flymo easy glide 330. 
let's fire this up for the very first time
you have to hold down the the press button hold that down at the same time as pulling the grip
[FLYMO MOWER NOISE] 
I’m doing this one hand because I’m holding the camera so that's that's how easy glide it is 
so I’m now going to take this out for a spin and while I’m doing that you can just live vicariously through me doing my well over to lawn mowing 
you can probably see that I’ve well I yeah I say we it's me I’ve let it grow a bit long 
let me talk you through some of the features while I am mowing and modelling this as best I can 
honestly this is the the most work I’ve done in the garden uh this year 
so this is an electric hover non-collect lawnmower to simply mow your lawn and is easy to store 
these are Flymo's words I’m just reading off the box 
it's easy to manoeuvre
this lightweight lawnmower floats on a cushion of air making it highly manoeuvrable and you can see here that that is really the case and this is why we wanted to buy the Flymo Simpliglide
what we were doing with our previous Flymo mower was actually just taking off the grass box and then flinging it around the garden like this 
and I suspect the the the boffins and the designers at Flymo knew that's how we're actually using their crafted devices
and look at this it just glides over our railway sleepers without breaking a sweat no grinding noises it just glides over it without any moaning or negative consequences whatsoever
underneath let me give you a demonstration 
uh obviously I’m being very careful here but this is what the long life metal blade looks like 
and in case you're concerned this is what it looks like spinning I’m using this in a way that you and I would never use but I’m doing this for your benefit 
so I hope I hope this helps
the flat folding handles allow you to hang the mower up on the wall for space-saving storage and on the box it says it weighs 7.3kg 
it feels lighter to me that sounds really heavy seven bags of sugar 
for a mower this feels really really light and and because you can hold it with both handles it makes it much easier to to move around
this lever allows you to operate with either hand for greater flexibility and manoeuvrability
on the noise front it is is what you would expect with a Flymo so it doesn't feel too loud to our ears it's certainly much quieter than a petrol mower and a lot less smelly too
let me show you what the grass looks like a bit closer
just so you can see this is what it looks like out of the box
with no adjustments to the blade height so that for us is just what we need
for the way that the Flymo Simpliglide works there are spacers
let me show you they come in the bag so you put the spacer in and that gives you a lower height we love it 
this is exactly what we wanted and our fears like we said earlier were the the plastic blades feel a bit safer than having a spinning metal blade
but this metal blade seems less lethal if that makes sense
because it's so flat and flush with the motor it feels a lot safer and we are not the kind of gardeners who need the grass to be collected 
we will just leave this out for it to dry out in the sun and blow away uh hopefully into our neighbour’s garden over that way where the massive petrol mower is making its way 
if this video is helping I’m trying to get this channel to 1000 subscribers I don't think it'll ever happen - I’m on about 320 but as soon as we hit 1000 subscribers youtube actually give us money for these videos at no cost to you so if you're feeling awesome and extra kind why not hit that subscribe button or the thumbs up to let someone else see this video and good luck with your hover mower purchase
there's some other videos up here 
this is what YouTube thinks you should be watching next 
don't forget the link there's a link down below if you want to buy one if you want to link to the exact model of this it's down below in the description

How to renew UK DRIVING LICENCE Online step by step tutorial 2021



How do you renew your UK Driving licence?
In this video, I renew my Driving licence online and manage to do it in under 10 minutes... so you can follow along in case it helps to renew yours!

How to renew UK DRIVING LICENCE! Online step by step tutorial 2021



0:00 How to renew a UK driving licence online 2021
0:33 What you need to apply for a UK driving license with DVLA online: a valid UK passport, to be resident of Great Britain, £14, your current driving licence and National Insurance number
2:10 Can you use your passport to renew a UK driving licence? Yes - it automatically uses the photo and signature from the passport

THE LINK FOR WHERE TO RENEW UK DRIVING LICENCE ONLINE IS:

TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

How do you renew your UK driving licence?
I’m going to walk you through the process step by step so let's dive in.
There's a link in the description to the page that you can go to: this is how you do it in 2021 and maybe 2022. 
If anything changes though in the future I’ll change the link in the description, that's the only place you need to go, and I’m going to walk you through the entire process in real time. 
So this is the renew your driving licence gov.UK page. 
I’ll scroll down here because there are some exceptions at the moment you can pause the video if you need to see any of this.
But it gives you a list of what you need which is a passport.
I haven't got my passport. 
I’ve got to go and get my passport!
You need to be a resident of Great Britain. 
Well I’ve got the worry lines so checked out there totally and there's a few other details there but I’ll just scroll up to start now.
And we'll go through this step by step so this actually takes me to the DVLA website and the first page says please don't use the buttons on your browser.
Make sure you've got the documents to hand. 
I haven't so I’m going to have to pause and go into the house to get them! 
Make sure the details you enter your own, you can't apply for someone else. 
I wish someone else were doing this for me.
There's a page on the data security I’ll click next...
Now the first thing it wants is our details, so I’ll just fill this in.
I’ll speed it up. 
I always want to put something like sir or lord or grandmaster! 
Shall I put grandmaster?
Grand... master. 
The next page wants our address so shall put number 10 Downing Street? 
The next thing DVLA want from me is my driver number. 
I’d like to think that they would know my driver number but I guess we'll just type it in anyway to give them a hand.
Okay so I had a bit of a problem there I forgot to put all my names, so if you're filling this in don't forget to put all your names. 
Now this page is a bit weird: “so that we can process your application we will check your identity and the details you've given us with third parties” 
You're the government!
Surely... surely you've got all the details you need from me?
Wow this is quite intrusive. 
On this next page it now wants my national insurance number. 
On the next page DVLA wants to know my passport number. 
I think they can actually use the same photo and signature from my passport and put it on the driving licence.
I’ve... I’ve just got to go and get my passport. 
Got my passport so now I need my passport number.
The next page is this: it wants my photocard driving license issue number.
I can't really show you. 
I don't want to show you my details because I don't want you to be able to drive in my name but somewhere on here there are two digits.
Two digits? 
Somewhere on here there are two digits and it explains where it's after my driving licence number.
And my photo card number which is a 10 or 12 digit number.
It would be too easy wouldn't it just have one kind of number?
That's in at the bottom of your licence there. 
You know it really helps if you take a photo of your thing because then you've got everything in place.
Take a photo of both sides of your driving licence.
Are you currently disqualified from driving? 
No.
Do I want to do organ donation? 
Finally there's a declaration so you have to tick these two boxes to continue. 
There's a summary page that lists out everything you've typed in so far and then it takes you to this payment page so you can put in your payment details 
I’m going to use my wife's credit card and see if they notice this 
And then it looks as if we have success and finally there's a little survey to ask how they're done because you know the government is er... the government needs to know how we're feeling about it I guess
I can see on my camera that entire process took me seven minutes including running into the house and coming back with my passport so I hope this helps. 
Does this help?
Leave a comment below if any part of the process changes I’ll put a new link in the description but everything you need is... is right there in the description
Good luck with renewing your UK driving licence. 
Can you please help my daddy get 1000 subscribers, just click on his face.
Thanks! Bye! How was that?

How to fix a bricked KINDLE: not charging, Amazon Kindle stays on battery logo



Does your Amazon Kindle hang on the empty battery icon?
Your Kindle doesn't seem to charge, even though the charging light is orange... and the screen just shows a battery logo with an exclamation mark.
If your Amazon Kindle is not working, not turning on and doesn't charge with an exclamation point, I have 2 possible solutions for you in this video!

How to fix a bricked KINDLE: not charging, Amazon Kindle stays on battery logo



0:00 How to fix a bricked KINDLE : Amazon Kindle not charging, stays on battery logo
1:00 Method 1: Reset Kindle by removing some books from your Amazon account, to trigger a sync to your Amazon Kindle
2:40 Method 2: Fix your Amazon Kindle by charging it from a laptop not a wall charger

TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

hello I’m Neil welcome back to the happy hut 
this is the dad delivers vlog where we try to be happy with what we've already got 
and we've already got this 
it's an Amazon Kindle but we're not happy with it because look 
it has bricked!
it has completely tanked 
it has stopped working 
it's a Kindle paperwhite and nothing removes this horrible icon of doom gloom and death 
is this device dead 
I’m going to try and fix this using only my laptop and if this has happened to you too I’m so sorry 
we've only had this like two years 
but there might be a way to fix this 
my Kindle is actually my... it's actually my wife's Kindle 
but her Kindle is only showing a battery icon with a exclamation mark 
as you can see I don't know if you can see in the daylight 
there is a nice battery charging light 
but nothing happens 
it doesn't turn green and it just... it just stays dead 
it's completely bricked 
this Kindle has just stopped working 
so thanks for coming along with the ride of the jeopardy with me 
so this is my wife's Amazon home page 
I’ve obviously blanked out some crucial details because goodness forbid that you would actually order some stuff for us 
probably do less damage than we do with it 
if I zoom in on the left hand side you can see this hamburger menu icon 
the three lines in a row there 
that indicates this menu 
and if I scroll down you can see digital content and devices 
I’m going to go down to Kindle e-readers and books 
click on that but I’m going to go all the way down to manage your content and devices 
now this has opened up the list of books on my wife's dead Kindle 
I wonder if all of these books might have crashed this Kindle 
I’m going to remove the ones I know she's not going to read 
so let's try this one and this one 
I’ve selected just two random books and I’m hoping changing the account will somehow force Amazon to try and contact this device 
so if I hit delete here and this deletes them from my wife's Kindle’s library 
by the way you get to see a little glimpse into mine and my wife's reading history 
yeah make of this what you will 
whoa the next thing I need to do is to come indoors 
this is where I’ve got wi-fi connection to the... the Kindle 
and the next thing we need to do is to press and hold down the power button for a long time so I’m going to try that and see if that somehow reboots it 
and let go of the power button 
which isn't worked at all 
what a waste of time 
okay so that didn't work but there's another solution that apparently does work and it means that I’ll be slightly less grumpy and it involves plugging this into your computer to charge it up rather than into a wall socket 
if you plug in your Kindle to your computer - it charges at a different voltage and if you leave it on charge for about half an hour in a computer sometimes that helps 
if you can hold down the power reset button for about 45 seconds 
and we've got the charge light on so that's a good sign 
I’m going to leave this for half an hour 
so we just got back from the park and you will never guess what's happened 
haven't got my microphone on - I’m sorry I think you can guess what happened 
it worked! 
it's brought the Kindle back to life 
yeah look by plugging it into a computer it charges it at a different voltage there's some kind of block from using a wall charger 
so while my family are arguing about whether an Asus Chromebook is a mum computer 
I will celebrate the fact that I have somehow managed to fix her Kindle 
there's all kinds of rows kicking off here now 
if this has helped you please hit a thumbs up so that other people can find this video too and if it hasn't leave a leave a comment because I’m sure people down below will be able to help you with your broken Kindle 
oh man I’ve got Bolognese on the back of my paperwhite 
can you please help my daddy get 1000 subscribers 
just click on his face - thanks bye! how's that
