5.0 out of 5 stars Power four in-car devices at a time, 21 Jun. 2016
Having conquered our homes, USB is now filling our cars and this 4 port charger is great at providing power to multiple devices whilst on the move.

It plugs directly into the car power socket has four charging ports:-
• Two standard smart charge USB sockets
• One Quick charge port.
• One new Type-C USB charging port.

So the charger caters for standard charging plus, if you have capable devices, quick charge or charge via the USB c connection.

The charger arrives in nice retail packaging and though of plastic construction is nicely finished in black and silver. When connected to power there is a tiny blue LED that illuminates though you’ll probably only notice it in the dark.

The charger is larger than average to accommodate the four outputs, but fits securely in the power socket and works well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lens set with long reach attachment device, 21 Jun. 2016
I’ve seen several different sets of attachment lenses for phones. The set of three lenses seem to be the same in each set, what differs is the method of attachment to your phone. This set aims to reach phones that others cannot reach.

Several sets use what is effectively a large crocodile clip to clip the lens to the phone. The problem with that is that if your camera lens isn’t near the edge of the phone, the clip won’t reach far enough to cover the camera lens. Another problem comes when the clip will reach, but covers up or operates phone switches.

This set offers the most flexible way of attaching the lens that I’ve seen. It has a standard ‘crocodile clip’ but this has an adjustable extending arm that can be adjusted for length and rotated so that it can reach pretty much any camera lens position. The maximum reach of the clip is around 7.5 cm from the edge of the phone to the centre of the lens.

The only remaining restriction is on the thickness of the phone. The clip will fit any phone that is 1 cm or less in thickness.

The lenses provided are
• Wide angle – useful for pulling in extra detail at the edges of pictures, so great for large group shots.
• Fish eye – extreme wide angle that gives some interesting effects.
• Macro – great for close-up photography. See the photo of a 2 pence piece

Note the wide angle is used with the macro lens. They arrive screwed together.

See the attached photographs for examples of the effects of these lenses.

The lenses offer a way of extending the usefulness of your phone camera. The set can be easily pocketed and if you’ve bought a set of lenses and had trouble fitting them to your phone, this set may be the answer as long as your phone is no kore than 1 cm thick.

The pack also includes a lens cleaning cloth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice pair of pink and blue cooling towels., 21 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You receive two separately packaged cooling towels, one blue, one pink. They measure around 105 x 32 cm and are made of a thin microfiber material. The shape makes them rather more a scarf shape than a towel and you can drape them around your neck.

The idea is that you soak them in water and apply them to your face for a cooling effect. Cool water on the face is certainly nice in hot weather. As you hold the towel against your body the towel warms up and as the cooling effect lessens you move to another part of the towel. In this way the cooling lasts for quite a long time as the towel seems to retain the water well rather than quickly drying out.

The towels arrive in individual zip-lock bags so can be moistened and put in the bags and taken with you on a trip to the beach for example.

I like them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking basic business card wallet, 21 Jun. 2016
This is a nice looking PU leather wallet style business card holder. It contains 40 pages each of three translucent pockets sized to accept standard sized business cards. If you insert two cards back to back in each pocket it can hold a total of 240 cards. The pages are held in place in the wallet by three metal studs

The wallet is held close by a press-stud fastening on s trap that’s long enough to hold the wallet closed even if full of cards. There’s no wrist strap on the wallet.

It looks good and holds a fair number of business cards safe and sound so that you can flick through them when searching for a contact name. It would have been nice to have a wrist strap and a place for your own business card on the front to identify the wallet as yours, but other than that it’s pretty good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic step counting pedometer with manual reset., 20 Jun. 2016
This is a handy pedometer that’s accurate enough to give an indication of your activity levels.

The 3D design means it’s a step up from the basic pendulum type pedometer where you can hear the switch clicking s it counts the steps. This one is totally silent. It can be carried in a pocket, on a neck chain or looped around a belt.

The 6 digit display isn’t back lit so whilst easy to read indoors is more difficult outside, however you shouldn’t really be using the pedometer to measure distances, instead it should be worn through the day and at day’s end used to give an indication of the level of activity for that day. Whilst I found the pedometer a little inaccurate for short walks, it evened itself out over a day and is certainly capable of letting you know the level of daily activity.

It has a novel feature where you shake it to clear the count to zero. This certainly simplifies the design as there are no switches or controls. However I find this design less satisfactory than those that incorporate a clock feature and can thus zero themselves at midnight. With this pedometer measuring daily activity relies upon resetting it manually each day. Other pedometers I’ve used have memory functions that allow previous day’s activity to be recorded, again I missed this feature on this device.

So it’s a basic step counter. It benefits from the simplicity of having no user controls, which I’m sure some people will value, however if you prefer automatic reset at midnight and stored readings for previous days, there are other pedometers that will fit your needs better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waterproof 5 litre bag., 20 Jun. 2016
This is a cylindrical bag constructed from high quality thick plastic coated material.

There are a variety of waterproof bag designs, incorporating different ways of keeping the contents dry. Some incorporate zip style seals, this is a little different. There is no seal as such, the bag relies on the end being folded over three times and then buckled . For water to make its way into the open end of the bag it has thus to squeeze its way up and around these three closely folded layers of bag. As this means the water has to travel both up and down it’s kept out of the bag.

The bag comes with a shoulder strap but can also be used inside a rucksack or cycle panniers to provide a waterproof core for key items of equipment such as cameras.

The bag is made from a very strong plastic material which appears to have a fabric core. The single seam and joint to the base are both bonded with an over-strip of plastic as is the shoulder strap attachment point to ensure they are waterproof.

The only visible exposed stitching is at the open end of the bag, around the lip and where the two closure buckles are attached.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant totally waterproof pouch for your phone, 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This works brilliantly to keep your valuable phone totally dry when submerged in water.

This bag/pouch is designed to totally exclude water to protect your phone, camera etc. the pouch storage area measures around 10.5 x 17 5 cm. At the top is a special plastic seal that is closed by two thumbwheel cams.

You insert your phone, close the top and then close the thumbwheel clasps to seal the bag. If you pinch the bag slightly to bulge it out, you can trap extra air and make the bag float, should you choose.

I chose to test the bag by inserting a piece of tissue paper, sealing the bag and then placing it in a bucket of water weighed down by a brick. I left the case, forgot about it actually, for over two hours before opening and found the tissue absolutely dry with no sign of water having got into the bag.

Although this doesn’t test the bag to its claimed limits, I was nevertheless impressed by this.

The manufacturer claims this is certified up to 20 metres depth, which is somewhere I never intend going to, so the bucket test was perhaps easily passed. I’ve seen lots of bags with claims for being waterproof but this is the most effective and simple to use that I’ve come across.

It’s designed to be taken underwater whilst diving, which is great if that’s what you plan to do, so I’ve absolute confidence that it will keep even the worst of British weather away from getting to my phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good fish feeder for when you’re away for long periods., 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 0:17 Mins

The first thing that struck me about this fish feeder was its size, 12 x 11 x 5 cm approximately. I was expecting something smaller. It’s battery operated and requires a single AA battery which is supplied.

Once installed the ‘clock’ second-hand spins to let you know that all is well and it’s running. You need to set the current time approximately. You do this by turning the small inner wheel that surrounds the second-hand.

The feeder has a food hopper on the rear and works by rotating this hopper through 360 degrees at the selected times. With each rotation a small portion of flake fish food is released. There’s a sliding control on the hopper to adjust the amount of food released at any time.

The hopper can be operated manually by turning the small knob at the 12 o’clock position on the front dial. Routinely it is operated by cams as they are rotated by the 24 hour clock mechanism.

There are 48 possible positions that you can place the small green plastic cams (so 30 minute spacing) and 6 cams are provided, so you could feed up to 6 times per 24 hours. You simply insert the cams at you chosen times. Cams that ae not in use can be stored beneath the clock in two purpose made slots.

The feeder can be attached three different ways. There’s an adhesive pad, or a screw bracket where the screw can be mounted to operate either vertically or horizontally.

When using the feeder access has to be provided to the top of the tank, so that the food can drop into the water. On my aquarium there’s a small feeding door that can be opened. And this was the only place the feeder could be attached. On a small tank it does look rather out of proportion, but if the feeder is to be used only during holidays that’s not really a problem.

The most common problem with fish is over feeding, not underfeeding, and I read that well fed fish can survive quite happily for a week without food, so this is designed to cover extended periods away from home.

I’ve read other reviews where condensation gets into the hopper and causes the food to get damp and sticky and consequently fail to be dispensed. I’ve not encountered that problem. The food opening is quite small and the tank rests with the opening uppermost. You need to make sure that you attach the feeding hopper the right way up to make sure that this is the case. There are arrows on both the hopper and its lid that indicate ‘UP’, though if you ignore these it is physically possible to mount it the wrong way up. If you did this it would exacerbate the condensation problem. A better design would be to make this fool-proof by making it impossible to attach the hopper the wrong way.

So in use it’s important to check that the hopper is installed correctly and that the second-hand is ‘ticking’ to indicate a good battery. I tested it with only a small amount of food in the hopper as I was finding out how it worked and didn’t want to accidentally over-feed the fish. (see video and pictures).

4.0 out of 5 stars Small battery powered PIR sensor light, 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a small motion sensor LED light powered by 3 x AAA batteries (not supplied).

It's a handy little light for use in a cupboard or under-stair area. It’s not particularly bright, but bright enough for a small dark corner.

There are no controls on the light, so it’s not possible to operate it except in motion sensing mode which is activated by low light levels. This is handy as it means helps conserve battery life but does mean that you might find yourself waving a hand in front of it to switch it back on, as there’s no override button.

The light has a magnet of the reverse so will attach to any ferrous metal surface. Alternatively you can use the small metal disc and adhesive pad to glue the metal disk in an appropriate place. The lamp then can be easily attached and removed for battery replacement.

The lamp does what it sets out to, however there are alternative lamps available that have inbuilt rechargeable batteries that might prove more economical in the long run.

3.0 out of 5 stars Simply designed running belt, but not adjustable., 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a running belt of simple design. There are no fastenings, you either step into the belt, or pull it down over your body. It’s made of a stretch material (12% Spandex, 88% Nylon) but there is no size adjustment, so you need to buy the size that will fit best.

I have the Large and un-stretched it measures 72 cm in circumference, around 29 inches. There’s not a lot of stretch in the material, so if the sizing isn’t near to your size, it’s probably going to be to tight or too lose. Also as there are no fastening to the openings, it’s best to empty the belt of everything before taking it off. The listing states Large to be 30 inches and suitable for 32 - 35 inch waist. I'm 34 inch waist and found it too tight for comfortable use.

The belt is basically a tube design with three slots through which you can put things into the tube. Note that there’re aren’t any pockets so when you insert something it can be moved around the belt and retrieved from a different slot to the one you put it in. With larger items such as a phone this means you can slide the phone to the position that is most comfortable. With smaller item such as coins, they may wander along the belt as you run.
The openings are mid-way up the belt but note there is no Velcro to seal the holes, they close naturally as a consequence of the stretching of the belt.

The belt is trimmed with a reflective bead line and carries the manufacturer’s logo, but otherwise is plain material.

One of the product photos sows a small hook for attaching items. My belt did not have a hook.

The basic design means it’s not a one size fits all, so getting the right size is crucial and at 34 inch waist I found the large to be too tight for comfortable use. The simple slot openings without fasteners mean you can fit a variety of sized items but smaller items will wander around, and you might not be happy with the lack of a zip to secure your items.

If it fits and you like the style this may be a good belt, but for most people the convenience of an adjustable belt with zipped pockets offers a more attractive option.
