PortaPow Version 2 Rainproof 7 W USB Solar Charger for Portable Electronics
PortaPow Version 2 Rainproof 7 W USB Solar Charger for Portable Electronics
Price: £20.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for battery charging, not so much for phone charging, 6 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works, but only put out 300mah on a sunny day in the Midlands, which isn't enough to charge modern smartphones unless you turn them off and wait a while. Would suggest the 15w version, as I'm going to try and swap.

Excellent. Only negatives are that they're easily scratched and they fog up.

I applied some motorbike visor anti fog wax (similar products exist for swimming goggles) and that solved the latter problem.

Very happy.

This review is from: XLC Set of 4 V-Brake Pads (Misc.)
Lots of hype for these pads, but they aren't much different from the stock tektro pads I replaced.
I fitted them on road bike calipers (V brake pads have more surface area for wet conditions), and they fit perfectly.

Make sure you get the gold plated one - I was sent the silver one (but was then posted the correct one after complaining).
Works well and feels robust. Will update if something goes wrong.

Construction is cheap (plastic shell is lifted from the foam at some edges), but it's comfortable and feels like it will keep my head safe.

Robust chain and lock at an affordable price (20.99 with arwmotorcycles).
I couldn't find any with thicker links for a cheaper price.
The build quality is good and delivery was quick.

Draper 71416 25-Watt Soldering Iron

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 21 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not hot enough for soldering circuits. Loses its heat within a few seconds of touching a metal surface, so has trouble melting already soldered solder.

Disappointed
