Sony Ericsson BST-38 Battery - Fits X10 Mini Pro, C902, Jalou & Others
Offered by Glitzy Gizmos
Price: 8.89

1.0 out of 5 stars Battery not suitable for stated purpose, 31 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sony Ericsson BST-38 Battery - Fits X10 Mini Pro, C902, Jalou & OthersThe battery did not succeed in powering my mobile phone. This was confirmed by the supplier of the phone who verified that the phone could be powered up with another battery.
The supplier of the battery maintains that the battery was tested AOK before despatch.
On closer examination I suspect that the fault may be a crease in the label on the battery which prevents the battery sitting properly in the phone.
The battery was returned to the supplier, but there has been no further comment from them.


Fastnet Force 10
Fastnet Force 10
by John Rousmaniere
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable explanation of the Fastnet disaster, 20 Nov 2011
This review is from: Fastnet Force 10 (Paperback)
I first read this book many years ago at the time I first owned a boat and started sailing, wanting to understand heavy weather sailing for the greater safety of my family. I had read two other books about the 1979 Fastnet and neither of them explained what had really happened: for example, why did some boats like Rousmaniere's come through unscathed while others were badly damaged and lost crew members?

Rousmaniere gives his analysis, markedly improving my understanding of the sea - and not just in storm conditions.
