Uni-Com Wind-Up Power Beam 59516
Uni-Com Wind-Up Power Beam 59516
Offered by Ryness Lighting & Electrical
Price: 16.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Satisfied, 16 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Uni-Com Wind-Up Power Beam 59516
It was smaller than I expected....which is a good thing.

I bought this to keep in the boot of my car, in case the batteries of my torch went. I also wanted something I could leave on the ground that wouldn't roll away when changing a tyre. This does the job.

Very bright light, beam is focused into a spot focus. It does provide a wider light beam, 'Flood Focus' to a small degree too. This not on the same scale of the likes of a LED Lenser P7, but I was pleasantly surprised at the brightness.

Battery winding is working as claimed. The winding mechanism is a little stiffer than other winders I've used.

Only 3 cons:

You have an option for regular beam, for a 'Turbo Mode' for a brighter beam, but you have to keep your finger pressed on the red button for the Brighter mode, when you let go, you revert back to the regular beam.

The USB ports at the back are exposed, so I don't see this flash light doing very well in the rain. Just tape this with Duct/Insulation tape if you are concerned.

Made in China!

Still though, its definitely one of the better wind up torches on the market. Very handy to have in the house or car.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a good pen, 3 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What more to say, its a cheap good quality pen.

I have 4 or 5 around the house.

Writes well, comfortable to hold, fits great in a shirt pocket, its tough and leaves a better impression than a cheap plastic rubbish pens that everyone else uses.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incorrectly Described, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is/was described as a Passport Protector when purchased, it's not, so don't bother buying.

It is a standard sized wallet, which is not what I wanted. You're passport hasn't a snowballs....of fitting in this wallet.

On the positive side, it is a very good, high quality item, attractive design and has something to offer, just not for passports. The RFID protection would still be applicable for things like contactless credit/debit cards. My one star is based soley on the product description, and how it misled me into purchasing.

Amazon's returns service has been first class too.


Ring Automotive RAC630 12 V Automatic Digital Compressor with LED Light
Ring Automotive RAC630 12 V Automatic Digital Compressor with LED Light

5.0 out of 5 stars Every Motorist Needs One - Excellent, 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Forget any other brand for aircompressors, I was tempted between this and the more expensive Micheline models, but opted for this due to its small size, and handy, neat carry bag.

I'm very particuar about my tyre pressure, I check it every week with a seperate pressure gague, and usually top up my air every 2/3 weeks.

It works very well with any measurement, PSi, BAR and KG/CM. I prefer BAR, my my Dad borrows it, and he like PSi.
Display is back light, so night time reading is easy.
Auto cut off is excellent, just set your desired pressure and you're off, you can do something else like dip your oil as the tyre inflates.
Takes up no space in the boot.
The tyre delate option is really good too, and you can deflate to an accurate level are the pressure gague on the compressor updates as your deflate.

I have this unit for over a year now, as mentioned above, I use it fairly regularly on 2 cars, and it's working just as well as the day I bought it.

My only cons would be the LED light, it's not particularly great.....it's actually fairly useless. I've a Led Lenser P7 and a Petzl Headtorch in the car at all times anyway, so the light isn't a big feature for me. But it's something to bear in mind if you are buying this compressor with the intention or relying on the provided light. It's only good enough to find your dust caps.

I found the valve connector a little bit fiddley and plastiky, unscrewing it from the tyre valve could be smoother, you do loose air, but I'm nearly certain the compressor gives a little extra air to compensate. When I check the typres with my other gague, the readings are at the desired level. Once you get the hang of it, you can minimise the air loss(as I unscrew the hose from the valve, I usually press the hose into the valve as I unscrew it, and this minimises air loss for me anyway.

As connecting the hose to the valve can be a little combersom, I'd encourage people to use a seperate pressure gague for their regular checks, and use the compressor strictly for inflating

It's a great unit, and something every driver should own! Ring owe me some commision at this stage, at least 5/6 friends & collegues have bought this unit after seeing it in action. At work, when ever anyone has a flat, I'm known as the 'guy with the pump' so it gives you a good oppotunity to rescue damzels in distress!

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm pleased with it..., nothing specal however, 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very handy item to have around the house.

The way the USB ports are laid out, it means it has a fairly low profile when plugged in. I've used other 4 port chargers are they massive and fairly cheap looking. This one at least looks fairly trendy!

The LEDs are a bit of a novelty, they are bright, but not in a big way. They would only bother a sensitive sleeper if you are using in a bedroom.

This also DOES NOT charge my Asus Transformer Prime, hence my docking it 2 stars.

Works fine for all my other devices

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Little Light, 27 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love this little flash light, I already own a LED Lensor P7, but I wanted something a bit smaller and lighter so I can stuff in my jeans pocket for when walking home at night from the pub. My house is down, in what we call a Boreen in Ireland. The road is not lit up in anyway, and cars tend to treat it like a WRC track.

Be safe, be seen!

Light output is really very good. Not in the same league as my P7, but not very far off the Flood light setting. This is nothing like the small LED flash lights you see for sale in the petrol stations/pound shops. A real quality item, build quality is top notch and this torch looks much more expensive than it actually is.

It's got 4 Functions; On, Laser Pointer and Flashing. If you press and hold the power botton, it will going in SOS mode where both the Laser Pointer and the Light do the Morse code thing.

Battery Life is really good too.

The Red Laser Pointer, is a nice novelty, great for having a bit of craic with cats, they go mad for it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Love them., 27 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love these gloves, very warm, very comfortable and not very bulky at all.

Easy on & off, the cuff as several people have mentioned are not a problem at all, the fit really well on your wrist and the gloves doesn't move about. The only issue I have with the Snug cuff is; I wear a large(ish) watch, the glove isn't very comfortable over the watch. I just don't pull the glove over the watch anymore!

I got the medium size and they fit perfect. If any one has any doubts about sizing, check out the Berghaus website and you can get the measurements on the 'Sizing' page.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great. You get what you pay for,, 27 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Took a punt on these and honestly, wish I hadn't bothered,

They are a great price, but the quality ain't much to write home about.

They have a real pound shop feel to them, and the light on both hand held and head torches whilst bright, are really only useful for close up work.

I've given the two hand helds to my neighbour's two young lads, and they absolutly love them, sure every young boy loves a torch!!

Great torchs for children, other wise don't bother. If your on the lookout for a decent headtorch, Energiser have some decent stuff that won't break the bank.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great upgrade to stock bulbs., 25 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these to replace the stock interior light bulbs in my Opel Astra, they came as a pair so ive changed the courtesy light tht activates when the car ia locked/unlocked and when door is opened/closed. the other bulb has been put into my glove box.

major improvment, really bright, but not annoyingly bright. Nice white light. Very noticable when i unlock the car with the remote key, the light really shines out the windows as i approach the car.

Great price, very fast delivery, no complaints.
