5.0 out of 5 stars Customer satisfaction., 27 April 2016
I received a free sample of these subsequent to purchasing the RAVpower USB Charger on Amazon. The charger is excellent. Unfortunately, the cable set will not fit my mobile phone as it is 9 years old and connection sockets have moved on. A new phone will set this right and I'm working on it. However, on inspection the cable set looks OK. I can only say that the supplier (Sunvalleytec-UK) are in the business of customer satisfaction, which is refreshing today.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good., 23 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought two of these. Works on the neighbourhood cats except two. However, they are the two I like and don't mind having them about as they don't foul on my patch and are very affectionate. Also, one of them is not well looked after by a neighbour and comes to me as a second home. Either they have a high tolerance, a hearing problem or find a way around triggering the device. They are very artful. I think four would be preferable, pointing to the four compass points, then our furry friends would have to run the gauntlet of a 360 degree challenge to their antics. They therefore need careful sighting. A neighbour has this device and no cats now disturb his vegetable patch. I previously had two similar devices that also worked but didn't last long. These new devices seem to be more robust. I charged them using the RAVpower USB charger (available from Amazon) before sighting them in the garden. It took seven hours to achieve full charge but they seem to be holding the charge well.

I bought this USB Charger to recharge my two newly acquired Electronic Cat Repellers, which it did admirably. British sunshine is not a particularly reliable source to keep such gadgets working efficiently. The charger is well made and I'm future-proof for any other device I may acquire. Also received delivery promptly. Thanks all round.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal Eco Lighting, 27 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought 3 packs of these Philips lamps to replace the 6 original 50 watt Halogen GU10’s in my kitchen. There are two ceiling units each with 3 lamps = 6 lamps using 300 watts total, plus the heat. With these LED’s the power consumption is reduced to 30 watts total without the heat and give a brighter white light, which I find ideal for a kitchen. They make white look white and not yellow. One of the original Halogen lamps exploded and tripped out the safety switch in my lighting circuit. These LED’s fit into the lighting unit perfectly and provide ideal Eco lighting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improve your wine., 17 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Plain, unfussy yet stylish piece of glass that complements my wine glasses. I enjoy minimalist designs. Not as fragile as it looks and it pours well. Red wine should be decanted for at least 2 hours before drinking. Even modest wine benefits. It was offered at a bargain price on Amazon marketplace at the time of ordering and delivered promptly by the supplier.

5.0 out of 5 stars I consider this a good recommendation for the Andrew James model, 10 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have delayed my comments until after 4 months use of this oven so that some aspect of reliability can be assessed. It replaces a previous Andrew James model bought 4 years ago, for which the original halogen bulb was reliable throughout. Eventually the manual timer became unreliable but it was the Fan/motor that failed. I have a neighbour who had three other halogen ovens (not by Andrew James) during this period, the bulbs of which failed and were not replaceable except by returning the oven to the manufacturer under the guarantee whilst it was valid. I consider this a good recommendation for the Andrew James model.

The hinged lid does not fall closed if it is properly and completely opened to its maximum - totally perpendicular - which means that it should not be left at an angle. The oven should not be moved with the lid open. However, I agree that extending the lid does require some coordinated effort with pressing a button, holding it and then lifting the lid. I have consistently made excellent sponges in the ring cake tin provided. I do most of my cooking wrapped in foil, opening it for browning during the final stages. This also helps to keep cleaning to a minimum. The digital timer is excellent, easy to set or cancel, with a clear display and is far better than the original mechanical timer. I don’t use the auto settings except for the wash. Most halogen oven cookbooks give appropriate cooking times. This halogen oven is more energy efficient than my gas cooker, especially cooking for one. Cooking chips is easy without the special attachment. Just use a heat resistant silicon mesh easily obtainable and cut to size with scissors; it does the same job.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have seen this item advertised online at various prices ..., 3 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have seen this item advertised online at various prices from £16 to £28. I paid around £19 ordered through Amazon marketplace. My experience with Amazon has always been positive. It arrived within three days. It works perfectly although one bulb did not light. It was just a matter of screwing the bulb in a little more. I have several spare bulbs left over from a previous Candle Bridge (not this type) that kept blowing the fuse and was discarded (probably a wiring fault).

The bulbs are wired in parallel and so if one lamp fails the others remain alight. The pine candleholder is smoothly finished with a matt sheen. It is built in two halves that are joined together. If viewed in a certain light it can appear that one half is darker, but this is because one half reverses the grain of the wood. This enhances the grain pattern of the natural material. The whole effect is attractively ‘rustic’. I have made 3D giant snowflakes out of paper that hang in the window, below which the Candle Bridge is flickering away quite merrily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Art Deco style for today., 15 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OPIS is a German Company responsible for the design and development of this retro style phone, although it is made in China. It closely resembles the Western Electric model D1/202 circa 1930 Art Deco period phone, which was a `workhorse' in the USA during the period. This retro phone has an authentic appearance, notwithstanding its modern plastic casing, (the 1930 original was moulded in zinc alloy). Installation is simplicity itself; just plug it in - no display screens and memories to set up. It comes with a UK adaptor for connection to BT Phone Outlets (or a BT answering machine in my case) and supports DTMF Menu Control (Touch Tone Dialling) suitable for telephone Banking etc. It also allows last number redialling - #/R.

The ring tone is electronic and not a bell. The original 1930's phone had a separate bell base that could be attached. There is no room for a bell in the phone itself, as it is so svelte. There is a Hi/Low volume switch under the base of the model I received, although it appears that some earlier versions may not have this. It comes configured for touch-tone operation; pulse dialling is not much of an option for modern applications. The casing on the black version resembles a Bakelite finish that gives the phone a more solid look. Sound through the handset is loud and clear, and the length of cable connecting the phone to a standard UK wall outlet is a generous 4+ metres.

Having grown up with manual exchange telephones of the 50's, (pick up the phone and wait for the operator - "Number please"), and later GPO dialling telephones, I am not in the slightest way inconvenienced by having to dial the numbers. In fact, to use these telephones offers a therapeutic exercise in simplicity in today's fast-paced, information-overloaded and stressed-out world. Add the esoteric satisfaction that the Art Deco design imparts, and there is a style that is way out of reach for modern DECT phones. Time will tell as to reliability.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Weighed my empty luggage case, rated by manufacturer at 3.1Kg. The Balanzza showed 3.05Kg consistently, the difference being insignificant and suggests that the luggage case manufacturer gives a higher figure to be on the safe side. The Balanzza seems robust and is ergonomically designed for easy handling, with the read-out screen uppermost for easy reading. And one needs only to lift the luggage from the floor a couple of inches to read the weight, which stabilizes and beeps after a couple of seconds.

Charged the battery without any problems. The genuine Olympus battery is far too expensive, but this seems to be an effective and robust replacement for the original, which is showing its age - 9yrs).
