Ergohacks’s Feature icons is found under the Specification section of our reviews. They are small and simple, each denoting a specific feature. We add them to make it easier to digest multiple facts in a short time span and they give us the capacity to be more transparent about the products, places and services we review.
Each icon is a hyperlink to other products, places and services that also have this particular feature. Feature icons are new and not all reviews have them and not all of them are hyperlinked – we are updated all content as fast as we can.
