TireTek Premium Tyre Pressure Gauge - Large Dial
TireTek Premium Tyre Pressure Gauge - Large Dial
Offered by Odyseaco
Price: £19.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, very easy to use and simple to read., 14 Feb. 2016

Push the gauge onto valve then remove. Display locks at the pressure. It is reset by pushing the (only) button.

It is possible to reduce the pressure in the tyre by pushing the button while the gauge is on the valve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, powerful, cheap, 30 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a good powerful flash for a very reasonable price.

I'm probably never going to use it with any setting other than 'auto' using the camera's exposure meter (TTL mode).

My one disappointment is that the red focus assist light cannot be turned off. This means that the flash as delivered would be unsuitable for use at a wedding; as soon as you half press the shutter button there is an obvious red pattern on the bride. Although this won't be in your photo, it will be in everyone else's. The solution is a 1cm square bit of electrical masking tape over the lamp. I believe more expensive Neewer models allow you to disable the light.

Auto-zoom works fine - following the zoom lens and going to the widest setting when the flash head is not aligned to the camera. The zoom makes a noticeable sound when changing.

Unexpected pluses:
When the diffuser is in use, the flash automatically sets its zoom to the widest setting. This is correct (why else are you using the diffuser?) but can make you think the zoom has stopped working.
The unit has, beside the diffuser, a (pull-out) piece of white reflective plastic. This is delicate but will, when the flash head is pointing at the ceiling, reflect some light to the subject, allowing a subtle reflection in the eyes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Requires (but does not tell you) to download Uplay and create an account, 20 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you simply install the game, following its instructions and start it, you will see an error message 'A service is unavailable' and the game will not work

You need to download Uplay (from uplay.com), create an account and then start the game. Things will then work fine.

2.0 out of 5 stars They don't look like lit candles, 2 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The flickering is unrealistic; Phillips seem much better.

One of the candles never charged, but no brand is perfect

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed. The car looked nice, 2 July 2015
Very disappointed. The car looked nice, but the axels were weak and the wheels not aligned, so the car barely went along when pushed.

Just as expected. It holds a Tamron 150-650mm lens (with the lens' hood reversed) and a Nikon D5300 very well. The body extension is very discreet so the bag is fine without it being extended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for backing up a camera SD card and viewing the photographs on a tablet, 4 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works very well reading SD cards, creating a new folder each time the card content is deleted in the camera, so avoiding file name clashes. The Android and iPad apps show you thumbnails of (at least) JPEG and Nikon raw (NEF) files. Selecting a file launches the browser (I use Chrome) to show the full photo. Transfer (of 20MB NEF files) is very quick when the box is next to the tablet, several seconds when they are in different rooms.

My item was delivered with V24 of the software, but downloading and installing V28 was easy.

The manufacturer recommends using a very strange USB cable (supplied), with a micro and a mini plug side by side - see photo) but a standard one works fine.

There are three USB ports. One (micro-mini) is for connection to a host computer; another (micro) is for charging the device; the third is a host port allowing the device to charge another.

The system works well as a Wifi master but I was unable to get the device connected to my home network, despite following the instructions carefully and entering the password (via the device web page) many times.

The vinyl case is very poor quality. I broke both the zip pull tabs the first time I used them.

In summary, excellent for backing up a camera SD card and viewing the photographs on a tablet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine but you need a power sander, 20 Sept. 2014
Very small, high current, USB adapter. Ideal for travelling

I found mine very difficult to plug and unplug; the plastic 'earth' connector was slightly too wide. A power delta sander fixed the problem.

A simple quick reference guide easy to carry and waterproof. Pictures are clear. It lists only a tiny minority of the species but that is inevitable.
