1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 10 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product was supposedly once sold at a much higher price, somewhere in the region of £14, or so we are led to believe. If it ever retailed at that price I am surprised. The connection at the jack plug is very bad, doesn't even fit properly and the sound quality is utterly awful and all high end...if you fiddle with the connection to get it to actually work in both ears. I know it's cheap. But it simply doesn't work acceptably at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars A little bit iffy!, 20 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not sure about this, but I suspect using this has destroyed at least one of my batteries. The contacts in the charger seem to built to take a whole range of batteries, and none of them very well. I tried my NB-5L in it and the connection was extremely tenuous. It's certainly not built exclusively to take the NB-5L. The adaptor and cables are not of particularly high quality either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it should, 20 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Solid build quality, quiet operation. No problems setting up as a Time Machine drive for my ageing Mac G5. Using an old machine like this means I can't take advantage of the high speed USB 3, however there is no trouble using it on the old USB2. Seagate generally seem to produce good, reliable drives, I'm sure this one is no exception.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it, 20 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've tried several NB-5L replacements for my Canon s100. Most have been much cheaper than this one but, as you might expect, they havn't really been much good. This one is still about half the price you'd pay for the branded version and is a good quality alternative. Remembering that the Canon s100 eats batteries anyway, this gives easily as good as the original.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit iffy!, 4 Aug 2013
The battery itself seems to charge well from the mains. The lights on the front don't actually seem to indicate anything very much, they're either on or off. After a couple of weeks of use I they have never indicated anything other than 100% right up until it just stops charging - not very useful.
As yet, I'm not sure about the usefulness of the solar charging part of this device. I think it does help to keep the battery topped up but I wouldn't rely on it out and and about in the wilderness. So, as a high capacity emergency battery it will get you 3 or 4 full charges of your standard mobile phone, and that is quite useful. But without reliable indication from the LEDs it's all a bit hit and miss.

I watched a slightly cheesy horror film the other night, and as part of the soundtrack, during the usual pub scene where the main characters are warned not to go on to the moors, there was a folk band playing. The credits revealed this to be Mad Dog Mcrea, and I soon found myself having to purchase at least a couple of tracks, this being my favourite so far. They seem to produce a good mixture of traditional sounding folk, ranging from Irish influence to hints of Gypsy Swing rhythms, often with more contemporary lyrics. All well worth a listen.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not brilliant..., 10 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've tried several of these 'replacement' batteries, and so far none of them come anywhere near performing like the original Canon battery. I suspect this is because the rating printed on the battery is false. Some say 1200 mAh, some say 1400mAh, which should mean that they are equivalent or, indeed at 1400Mah, better than the original. This is not the case. Don't bother with these. Despite the large difference in price, I would say get an original from Canon.

I'm always glad to hear that Bellowhead has another album out. This latest one is no disappointment. Of course, it's difficult to recreate the feel of one of their live shows but, for a good weekend morning wakeup or for getting you tapping along on those dull car journeys, it's pretty good. If you even kind of liked their other work, you'll find some great, destined to be classic, tracks on Broadside. Buy and enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not up to scratch, 9 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This battery does not have anywhere near the capacity of an original Canon battery. It is described as being the same, right down to the 1120mAh rating. I havn't the equipment to test it, but I suspect it is a very different rating. You can tell almost immediately because of the short charge time. A shorter charge means it will discharge quicker. Do not buy this product if you are looking to get anywhere near the performance of an original.
