Ecosusi Design Electronics Accessories Bags Travel Organiser Boxes
Ecosusi Design Electronics Accessories Bags Travel Organiser Boxes
Offered by ECOSUSI INC
Price: £15.98

4.0 out of 5 stars Good useful transit bag for many items but could be even better, 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a useful little organiser bag which is about 240x190x70mm and reasonably light weight. It has a zip around 3 sides of the top face and a lightly padded material handle. Inside there is a flat zip compartment in the lid (ideal for instructions etc.) and the base contains 3 padded divider sections. Two are 'long' and run across the 190mm dimension and one is short and sits between the other 2 forming an H, which effectively divides the bag into 4 internal sections (2 within the H and 1 either side). The dividers have Velcro on the ends and the inside wall of the bag (the 70mm dimension) has Velcro running right the way round. This is ideal for housing + separating medium sized items such as small power supplies or a pocket camera etc. BUT if you want to house small objects (say AAA, AA, PP3 batteries or something of similar size), the dividers are not attached to the base or lid, meaning that as the bag bends under any weight, small items can pass under or over the dividers.
SO, if you want to use this for medium sized 'blocky' items, it is perfect but if you also want to include smaller items, be ready for them to migrate randomly between sections during transit.
Note to ECOSUSI - if you made even just the interior base Velcro also, it would make this so much better AND a fraction more rigid. :-)


Lifeventure Pocket Wallet RFID
Lifeventure Pocket Wallet RFID
Offered by Sub Zero Store
Price: £9.74

3.0 out of 5 stars There is so much I like about this wallet but I cannot recommend it., 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would have loved this for travelling - fairly slim, RFID, coin compartment, 3 card slots and an all round zip to keep everything safe. BUT, the wallet is just not wide enough to house many bank notes! The depth of the note compartment is about 78mm (I guess some will be slightly more or less than this) and remember, the more notes you have in there, the less they will sit right down into the note compartment. USD is OK but the larger denomination GBP, EUR and AUD notes will all need to be folded - which might sound not too bad until you rush into a shop to grab something quickly and are trying to put your money away whilst holding your purchases and not get in everyone's way.
Sadly not practical for anywhere but 'slimbanknoteland'.
LifeVenture PLEASE make it deep enough for 85mm notes and then it will be just fine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Robust, powerful and really good value torch, 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The torch is 25x123mm which is relatively neat for the powerful beast it is but a little too big to carry around 'just in case'. It takes the excellent 18650 rechargeable battery, which is becoming the standard for higher power devices and carries quite a lot of charge (used in Tesla cars).
The light cone is about 60 degrees with a central hot spot of about 10-15 degrees - both cones are reasonably homogeneous. Range is difficult to describe but at 50m there is plenty of light and again at 100m it is still quite bright. Unless you have very specialised needs, you are unlikely to need anything more powerful than this. A good quality, powerful torch, with a very strong pocket/belt clip and supplied with carry strap, holster, spare lens glass, spare o-ring and even a spare switch!
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems to work fine so far, 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not much to be said about a battery but here goes - works as expected, reasonably packed, long shelf life. However I could not find the mAh value on the packet or the battery and I can't think of a good reason it should be missing!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the EDC torch I have always wanted!, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great little torch only 21x61mm with a very useful side button which is easy to find but not too easy to press accidentally. Ideal for carrying all day in a pocket and ideal for emergencies as the CR123 batteries have a minimum 10 year shelf life. There are 4 modes all accessible via the side button - hold when off for 0.5 lm, hold when on to cycle through 8 lm, 80 lm, 500 lm settings and double click when on to activate the 10Hz strobe. The clip is very robust and quite large compared to the torch - I aligned mine opposite the button which helps me find it (the button) quickly and I use the curl on the clip as a resting place for my finger. The beam cone is around 30 degrees and illumination quite even, providing good practical light for most purposes. There edge of the beam is not highly defined (like a 'blue moon' type beam) but very little light falls outside the 30 degree cone. I have not tested the maximum range but illumination is very good at 50m.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very smart, practical and versatile stand for Arlos, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great stand which can be used on a flat surface of hung on a wall (or ceiling I guess) - simple but effective design and also looks very smart and minimalist. My only issue is it is a little pricy - but it does seem well made.

[New Release] Anker Ultra Slim 4-Port USB 3.0 Data Hub
Offered by AnkerDirect
Price: £10.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect little hub which can sit discretely almost anywhere and works faultlessly, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant little 4 port hub. The only problem is the maximum load it can handle across all the ports means it is likely you may only be using 3 of the ports to stay within the guidelines. However that suits me and it is very neat when plugged in the back of my Intel NUC (very tiny) PC. I have the screen, keyboard and mouse connected through this hub and all work perfectly. The simple shape and port spacing make this an excellent and practical peripheral. Some others have fancy shapes and port layouts which are not at all helpful when in use.

5.0 out of 5 stars These work fine and are in a handy slim case with longer tab handles, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These seem to work fine - tried them against the Rayovac proline versions and they seem to last exactly as long. However, the easy open slim case and longer sealing tabs are (I think) more convenient than the Rayovac, so I may stick with these if all else (price) is equal.

Offered by Patox
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value smart case - good protection and not too bulky, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great case - thick enough to give some reasonable protection in a fall but slim enough not to make it feel as though you are holding a brick. The case comes in 2 parts and was fairly easy to put on - it looks quite smart also. It is not the grippiest but having said that I have not dropped the phone since having it (2-3 months), so it is not slippery either (as my previous case was!). Good value and recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Good so far, 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is relatively new and still on its first charge, which seems to be lasting well in a Thorfire LED torch. Will update review if the situation changes.
